A backup for your documents is a must these days when the loss of a single document can turn your world upside down. The hard disk of your laptop isn’t a reliable option and that’s why the world relies on the cloud services whose servers are safe and reliable and can serve 24×7 whenever you need them. But as the space of internet expanded, so did the number of web entrepreneurs and now there are countless number of service providers and there’s a very thin transparent sheet that separates them. So it’s a very difficult job to decide which one’s better. Well, we have got one such contender tonight right in our court and we’ll decide whether it’s speaking the truth or not. So let’s hear the Judgement!
I am talking about the latest iOS app called Egnyte that has been developed by Egnyte. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.
Egnyte is a cloud service where you can store your documents, images, videos notes, etc so that you can access them anywhere when you don’t have the device itself. The service runs on PC as well and therefore you can login to your account on PC and use the files there as well. Apart from backing up your documents, you can collaborate online as well with other users. There are features such as annotations, file versioning and notifications that allow you to create and edit documents and work with other users of the service online. There are some useful features such as hyperlink and email attachment which allow you to send the files to others. But amidst all these features, security has not been compromised at all. Features like local encryption and password lock make sure that not only the files are secured from hackers but they get only into the right hands at the other end.
Egnyte is an app mainly for entrepreneurs and therefore it should appeal in the same way. The developers have made sure that the layout is neat and clean and no complex design is used so that the usability is affected. You can readily create new folders, add new files to them, and sort them by name for easy search. You can decide for how long you want the link to work for downloading a file and it’ll expire after that. So you get complete control over your files even after sending them to another person. You can edit documents right within the app and that’s a useful feature. So overall, Egnyte not only has some very smart and useful features but it manages to keep the simplicity intact as well.
The app is available for free in the App Store. But their service is available at a paid monthly subscription and the prices depend upon your requirements. They have free trials as well. So you can always play it safe.
Pros: professional design and layout; collaborate online; utmost security; share files via hyperlinks or attachments via email; free.
