We are stoked when we see people using our cloud to get creative and pursue what they love.

It puts the amazing power of unlimited cloud storage and rich sharing features in everyone’s hands, so whether you’re LL Cool J sharing his latest hit, or the next big star working your way up, Pogoplug Cloud gives you the tools you need to get the job done. Keep on rocking, Cool J.
It’s the most wonderful time of year! No, not the Holidays. I’m talking about a new version of our iOS application of course. We have a bunch of new features giftwrapped and ready for your festive enjoyment (I know it’s July, shhh).
- Super-fast Phone Swapping
You can now transfer everything from your old phone to your new one with direct phone-to-phone transfer over WiFi. This means that transfers are up to 10x faster than the old phone swap so you can transfer all your photos, videos and contacts to a new phone in the blink of an eye (ok, it’s a little longer than that. But still really fast). To use phone swap, make sure that both phones have the latest version of Pogoplug installed and are on the same WiFi network, open the Pogoplug app, go to Settings and select either “Transfer From This Phone” or “Transfer To This Phone” depending on which direction you are swapping. Follow the on-screen instructions and you’re done!
- Snapshot backup upgrades
Snapshots are now fully customizable, meaning you can choose what to backup in each snapshot, whether it’s photos only, or everything on your phone. We also added the ability to save more versions of snapshots so your backups are always up to date.
Contacts has been removed as a standalone item from the settings menu and integrated into the snapshot feature. This makes it easier to ensure that your contacts are protected and properly organized by combining all backup features into one simple-to-use snapshot.
- The Usual Miscellaneous Changes
In addition to the usual squashing of bugs and performance enhancements, we also made photos and videos separate again for easier sorting, added richer sharing options and removed the need for location services while uploading.
This is our best iOS app yet, so head over to the App Store and download it today!
Some things just go together. Milk and cookies. Mario and Luigi. Trix and silly rabbits…you get the picture. Cloud storage and your phone is one of these magical combinations: access everything everywhere and protect the photos, videos and contacts on your phone while you’re at it. And unlike Trix, cloud storage is for everyone (even silly rabbits), which is why Pogoplug is excited to announce that we are now Sprint’s preferred cloud storage provider. Customers can now add Pogoplug’s service to their monthly Sprint phone bill for just 5 bucks a month, making it easier than ever for mobile customers to enjoy the benefits of unlimited storage and backup on their phones.
Working with a company like Sprint is very exciting for us and we are pleased to welcome Sprint to our list of amazing partners. They are the only wireless company to offer truly unlimited data, and we are the only cloud storage company to offer truly unlimited storage, so I guess you could say it was a match made in heaven. Our partners have been instrumental in helping us spread the word about Pogoplug, and Sprint will undoubtedly help us reach more customers than ever.
Speaking of things that are important to us, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers for your continued support of Pogoplug, and please stay tuned for new product launches coming soon! 2014 is going to be a big year for all of us at Pogoplug, and we have lots more awesome deals, features and products in the pipeline for the coming year. Thanks again for supporting us, and happy New Year to all of our awesome users!
Pogoplug now looks even better on iOS 7, and we’ve added a couple sweet new features as well, including multi-file share and background uploading.
The first thing you’ll notice when you open the new app is the design. We have re-built our app from the ground up to look and feel great on iOS 7, making the integration between Pogoplug and your iPhone seamless and beautiful. From the album view to the music player, every screen has a fresh look and an updated feel.
We don’t think you should have to choose between sharing just one photo or an entire album. You need the flexibility to share what you want, how you want, which is why we have introduced multi-file share. Multi-file share allows you to select as many files as you want and share them however you want: by email, Facebook, or just by grabbing the link.
We have re-vamped the uploading flow to make it simpler and more powerful. Background uploading is now an option, so you can keep your photos protected as soon as you take them, whether you’re using the app or not. We also added an upload history and progress screen, so you can see the status of your uploads on the go and access recently uploaded photos instantly.
Every update makes Pogoplug faster, and this one is no exception: this update will make Pogoplug run noticeably quicker so you can stream, share and back up your phone like never before. In keeping with the iOS 7 re-design, the settings page has been tweaked to make it simpler and give you access to the controls you use most. We have also integrated the airplay function into the iOS 7 control center: to airplay a song you simply start playing, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to bring up control center, select airplay and the destination, and voilà, your tunes are now broadcast wherever you want.
We are super excited about this release and you should be too. So head over to the app store and download it now!
Limited storage space just doesn’t cut it anymore; you need enough space to store your entire digital life in one place. We believe that everyone should be able to store, protect and share every photo, every video, everything for just 5 bucks a month. No catches, no limits, no hidden fees—just plain and simple unlimited storage across every device you have.
To make this dream a reality, Pogoplug has teamed with Best Buy to make affordable, unlimited cloud storage available to everyone. Not to toot our own horn (OK, well, maybe a little bit…) but Pogoplug is the only cloud storage provider that Best Buy trusts with their customers’ precious memories and data, and the only cloud storage service listed on the prestigious Geek Squad “setup sheet.” In a nutshell, with Best Buy’s Geek Squad, we’re offering customers their own cloud to store, protect and access their content.
Here’s how it works: when you buy a computer or tablet from any U.S. Best Buy, Geek Squad Agents (Best Buy’s army of tech specialists and certified computer geeks) will make sure your new devices are protected with Pogoplug Cloud. Rather than taking the time to manually back up your data and risk doing it wrong or not capturing it all, Geek Squad Agents will quickly help you create a Pogoplug Cloud account to move all of your existing content into a personal and private Pogoplug account. After that, all of your photos, videos, files and music can be easily accessed and shared from your new device. If you lose or break your phone, tablet or computer, none of your content is lost.
In addition to launching with Best Buy, we have partnered with major mobile carriers to help subscribers protect and share their digital lives both at home and abroad. We are the exclusive cloud provider for Bouygues Telecom in France and for Bezeq in Israel, and we have a very exciting new carrier partnership just after the New Year.
There are even more awesome products and launches on the horizon that we can’t tell you about yet (but trust us, they are going to be seriously cool). Stay tuned for updates and premier partner launch announcements as we continue to bring Pogoplug to more customers in more places and spread the word about the future of online storage.
