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.
