Zumodrive has released new versions of their applications for iPhone, Android and Palm smartphones.
Like other similar services, Dropbox, SugarSync, and Box.net, et. al., Zumodrive creates a drive on your device synced to the cloud. ZumoDrive has a slightly different twist, in that it tricks the file system into thinking those cloud-stored files are local, and streams them from the cloud when you open or access them.
Their new mobile apps allow users to upload and download files to ZumoDrive directly from their smartphones, which was not available as a feature in the previous versions.
ZumoDrive scored a deal with HP in January to to power the backend of the technology giant‚Äôs CloudDrive on all HP Mini netbooks. They‚Äôre seeing considerable growth in international markets, as well, with a user-base in over 150 countries. While almost half its usage is in the US, ZumoDrive has a growing percentage in Asia and Europe with Japan and the UK leading the pack.
Last year, ZumoDrive released a version of its system that wirelessly synced playlists between devices, auto-detection of content, the ability to link file folders on their devices to ZumoDrive, so that changes in that folder will always be linked to ZumoDrive.
The service was also upgraded to integrate well with media applications, like iTunes, so users can play entire music libraries saved in ZumoDrive on multiple devices without manually syncing content.
