[prMac.com] Penang, Malaysia – Eightythree Technology has launched its new updates version of Phone Drive: File Storage Sync, alongside with new releases on Android market for the first time that brings cross-platform file sharing between iOS and Android devices – no internet connection required. Users can also connect to any cloud storage provider, like Dropbox or Google Drive, to transfer, view, and stream music and video.
“No wires, no internet, no hassle. Just launch Phone Drive on your iOS or Android device to share files across different platforms,” says the app’s lead developer Felix Yew. “Today’s phones already have ample storage space, so being able to use them as portable storage devices makes a lot of sense.”
To share files between iOS and Android, Phone Drive takes advantage of Bluetooth to communicate with nearby devices and transfer files without the need for cables or internet connectivity. Sharing between mobile devices and a Mac or PC is just as simple, as long as they are on the same local network. “Once connected to a desktop device, you can drag and drop files from the Finder or Windows Explorer to the phone,” says Yew. “It couldn’t be simpler.”
An in-app purchase unlocks additional cloud features to connect the phone to multiple popular online services like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, iCloud Drive, Box, and Yandex Disk. This feature allows streamlined access and file management across various cloud platforms in a single app.
“Most of us use a bunch of competing cloud services,” explains Yew. “People with iPhones do work on PCs. Android users store files on Google Drive but watch movies on their iPad. Having those different devices and services play nicely together is exactly what Phone Drive is about.”
While storing and transferring files is the app’s headline feature, it is also a very capable document reader and media player. Phone Drive includes a feature-packed music and movie player, as well as viewers for PDFs, Microsoft Office, Pages, Numbers, among other apps.
Phone Drive supports English, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, Traditional Chinese and Turkish Languages.
Phone Drive requires a device running iOS 9.0 or higher, and is available now free as a lite version, with advanced features as an in-app purchase of $1.99 (USD). Download the app from the App Store.Screenshot 4
