Proliferation of devices
Do you suffer from more and more gadgets? Are your files and data scattered across your various computers, tablets and fancy phones? With the proliferation of smartphones and tablets to complement our laptops and desktops, mobile computing has become more powerful than ever. Even our e-book readers pack the processing power of a desktop computer from 8 years ago.
Living the mobile lifestyle
Our devices allow us to live an increasingly mobile lifestyle. We are no longer bound to our desks to do work. We can respond to email at a coffee shop, or do our taxes in a park. We are able to edit a client's photos and deliver them to him while sitting at the beach and are able to review architectural blueprints sitting on an airplane or the subway. We have so many options to choose from, all of which have their own strengths: the smartphone, tablet, and pc.
Fragmentation of data
This mobility does come with a price however. The more gadgets we use, the more our data gets fragmented. That is, we may have downloaded a report to our iPad (or similar Android tablet - we love both platforms), taken a photo to include in the report on our smartphone, and have the spreadsheet with numbers for inclusion on our office computer. What do we do when our report is due the next morning and we realize we've left our tablet at home?
Alternatively, imagine being on vacation in Florida showing your parents photos of their grandchildren from their play and realizing that half the photos are on the laptop that you left back in New York.
File sharing and the public cloud
is one way we can easily send data between devices. Even then, we are bound by size limits. It is also extremely annoying to share files with yourself. Uploading to Google Drive or Dropbox are options as they will allow the files to be accessed from anywhere, but even they are plagued by problems. If you are uploading a lot of photos, e.g. your family vacation photos to send to a friend - the process could take ages, plus you are limited by the size restrictions on the service.
Above all, sometimes it just gets confusing. I don't always remember whether I took a photo with my iPad or iPhone, or whether I created my report in Google Drive or my laptop...or my work computer. I'm sure the world collectively wastes enough time trying to find files that they could probably gain a few extra workdays a year, or better still, time to relax and travel.
Turning gadgets into portals using a Facebook app
These problems are why file access is becoming such a big deal. Services like turn your many gadgets into strong data portals and enable you to access all your content stored across all your devices from one single dashboard and send it to whoever needs it. No running around rifling through all data sources, no time spent uploading; instead - all of that time spent creating content and enjoying it. It's as simple as that.
