Why Use FileCloud on Mobile?

With an influx of mobile devices in virtually every aspect of our private lives, organizations are embracing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). When sensitive business data gets in wrong hands, it can cause irreparable damage to your business reputation and key operations. FileCloud’s unique capabilities to monitor, prevent, and fix data leakage assure corporate data is protected across all your mobile devices.

What's New?


 With the ability to open two apps on the screen at the same time, iPad supports multiple forms of multitasking including fast app switching, which allows you to quickly jump between recently used apps. FileCloud now supports it along with full feature parity with iPhones

 Normally when a user opens a folder, files and thumbnails are downloaded and rendered in a single go. For example, if an entire photo gallery is downloaded but the user leaves after only viewing the first image, then the result is wasted memory and bandwidth. Instead of bulk loading all the content, content can be loaded when the user accesses a part of the page that requires it. The result is faster launch times and less time waiting for contents to load.

Key Takeaways 

  1. Multi-tasking support ( even for iOS 9 devices) helps makes it easier for users to use multiple apps side by side along with FileCloud - like the word to edit documents.
  2. Lazy screen loading only loads files and folders user is currently accessing which makes it load faster and give a better user access.
  3. Lazy loading also utilizes less memory at a time and makes the process much quicker.



The new version includes:

Material design framework works with all the Android platforms and is known for a flat graphical interface.                  Google’s new visual design framework is flat, elegant, and vibrant creating a unified Android experience.


Key Takeaways

  1. Long press to cut/copy/paste makes it much simpler to use and easier as many apps follow similar conventions and app user are familiar with this feature.
  2. Pull to refresh is much used in every app on the app store that involves browsing any sort of list. The user will perform this same pull-down and release action with his or her thumb when scrolling quickly through such a list without any fiddly button pressing.
