As handheld device technologies are increasingly advanced and such devices are very prevalent now, there is a rush on handheld apps development focusing on two features, ease in operation and highly integrated functions.
- Easy in Operation
Many handheld apps that are supposedly powerful or look cool may not be friendly enough to new users, and new users tend to give up such apps after a few tries. Therefore, ASUS Webstorage always tries hard to bring new users up to speed by providing genuine user-friendliness, and has been successful in this regard.
- Highly Integrated Functions
As handheld mobile devices have almost become daily necessities, digital data for daily life applications, entertainment, and work are proliferating, and it is increasingly important to have a variety of such data integrated for convenient and easy sharing among people.
At the beginning of 2013, ASUS WebStorage completed its study of the two aforementioned features, providing interface optimization and new functions to better serve subscribers.
The interface optimization includes streamlined user operation, enhanced user-friendliness, simplified sharing, and a fine-tuned user-interface.
- Streamlined user operation
Factoring in user habits and apps development trends, ASUS WebStorage has streamlined the flow of user operation to rapidly bring new users up to speed. Because the apps for Android and iOS newly provided by ASUS WebStorage all have a menu on the left side of the screen, users can simply pull open the menu to see all functions for direct file selection when attempting to browse or manage any file in any space.
In the past, after ASUS WebStorage was reinstalled or updated, entering MySyncFolder for the first time required at least two steps: 1) Space and 2) MySyncFolder, in order to access the files in MySyncFolder. After the recent optimization, once an ASUS WebStorage app is opened, MySyncFolder is immediately accessible.
In past, if you received a share code from someone when you were browsing what was in MySyncFolder, three steps were required to browse what was shared with you: 1) Go back to the menu of Space , 2) Select “Share” , and 3) Input the share code provided to you “collected public share”. Now, with the new ASUS WebStorage, you can pull open the side menu to directly input the share code to save your time considerably.
- Enhanced user friendliness
Clear instructions* are provided to first-time installation of ASUS WebStorage as well as every update to make it easy enough for any new user.
* Instructions on a function only appear when the function is accessed for the first time.
The login process has also been fine-tuned. In the past, your account number and password were required after registration on a mobile device in order to log into and access ASUS WebStorage. Now, automatic login after registration is completed provides immediate access to ASUS WebStorage.
* Automatic login after registration only supports Android and iOS mobile devices.
- Simplified sharing
Sharing on the old ASUS WebStorage used have four steps: 1) long click the file, 2) chose “Share” , 3) press the button in the upper-right corner, and 4) chose the sharing wsy. In new ASUS WebStorage you just need to long click the file then you can see all sharing way. The simplification makes sharing much easier now.
- Fine-tuned user interface
The background color of the interface has been changed to deep blue, compared to sky blue in the past. The new color improves how the interface looks and helps alleviate eye weariness resulting from long-time viewing the previous sky blue interface, which tends to be too bright for browsing.
【Brand New Functions】
- Offline View
ASUS WebStorage does its best to help free subscribers from internet connectivity issues by enabling offline view of important documents or files, which tend to be starred. The asterisk mark function of ASUS WebStorage has been integrated with offline browsing for users to select which documents or files can be browsed offline. The selected documents or files are automatically downloaded to users’ devices wherever there is internet access to save the time of downloading in case such documents or files are needed at the last moment while avoiding internet connectivity issues.
- Wi-Fi uploading
Uploading massive data via 3G mobile networks often experiences slow transmission and even uploading failures resulting from network instabilities. In order to resolve such issues, ASUS WebStorage lets subscribers select Wi-Fi or 3G for uploading based on their own needs, but Wi-Fi uploading is faster and more reliable, and files will only be uploaded to cloud when Wi-Fi is connected to avoid network instabilities and reduce network traffic.
* In this updated version, the default upload mode only supports uploading when Wi-Fi is connected (i.e., Over Wi-Fi Only). If you want to change the default mode, please go to Upload and update file in Setting to change it.
- Uninterrupted access to same types of files
The new ASUS WebStorage enables uninterrupted access to same types of files. For example, a picture is always followed by another picture, and music is always followed by music without any interruption by any other type of files in order to provide a consistent and continuous experience of multimedia enjoyment.
* File types supported: JPG, PNG, MP4, AVI, MVB, and MP3.
Please update your WebStorage now to experience what is all new to you.
