Software-based Pogoplug brings OneView, updated iOS app

Pogoplug goes software-based with OneView

Cloud Engines adapted its strategy for the Pogoplug Wednesday with a new software-based version of its remote storage feature. Its app lets Mac and Windows user share the contents of their systems to nearly anywhere online over the web without needing a Pogoplug drive. A new trick for the category, though, is OneView: the method lets users pool their storage from multiple devices and see it as one, consistent library with no duplicates.

The OneView approach helps streamline new media-focused sections, including separate music, photo, and video players. Owners can also split the view into individual devices to filter their content views.

Along with the new desktop approach, the company's iOS app (free, App Store) now takes advantage of OneView. No mention has been made of when the Android app will get an upgrade.

Most of the software Pogoplug service is free, although streaming music outside of the local network or streaming any video will require a one-time $29 upgrade to Cloud Engines' Premium tier.

    Pogoplug is a good addition to a full cloud storag

    I have used pogoplug from a connected drive (freeagent) and it is pretty slick.____However, I'd want to keep both pogoplug & my current choice of cloud based storage - sugarsync. You can actually get 5.5GB of free storage for signing up through this link. Almost TRIPLE what you get with dropbox. http://bit.ly/SugarSync500MBBonus Smart move sugarsync!__
