BLOG: Mobile is bridging the gap between cloud and legacy

Steve Patterson | June 3, 2013
As mobile continues to grow, consumers will expect the same experience on their mobile devices as on their PCs.

According to Gauda:

"it is Bitcasa's goal to disappear on the user's device so they don't realize it's there."

From an ease of installation and use of the mirrored directories, Bitcasa has accomplished this. It is now focused on UX (user experience) due to introduce a new version of its Android App with a new design based on user studies. For example, the new version will give the user more direct control of mirrored directories, better and faster sharing with other Bitcasa and non-Bitcasa users, and will give the user a better understanding of the app choices for opening a file.

Bitcasa has paying customers in 160 countries and stores 20 petabytes of rapidly growing user files since completing its Beta on February 5, 2013. It has delivered cloud storage that serves most consumer applications and satisfies the growing need to use data just as well on PCs as on mobile devices. If the next Android release is indicative of the company's direction, Bitcasa will be improving the UX by making itself less prominent on the consumers' devices and more useful by satisfying consumers' use of data how they want to use it, where they want to use it, and on the device they are using at the moment. As network and processor speeds improve, Bitcasa will benefit.
