Cloud2go by phaps websolutions is the only CloudApp client available for iPhone & iPod touch in the App Store and frankly speaking, it is as comprehensive as it could be. Even though it is not an official CloudApp client, using Cloud2Go is a pleasure for any CloudApp service user. For those who are unaware, CloudApp is a useful file sharing service for Mac users that allows users to upload files and share them instantly with a http://cl.ly link. The service was launched back in April but the developers never bothered to release an official iOS solution until Matthias Plappert (@phaps) came up with this brilliant Cloud2go iOS app.
Cloud2Go ($2.99 in App Store) has a beautiful design and a pretty simple UI. You can either use your existing CloudApp account or create one for free. Once done, simply fire up the app, enter your login credentials and you are good to go! The app immediately begins to sync with your CloudApp account with full multitasking support meaning the sync continues even in the background. When sync is completed, you can see all items such as images, text documents, videos, and even audio files displayed nicely together or in a categories view. You can preview items, can copy text and save photos from there directly to your camera roll. You can also copy direct links for sharing with a couple of taps or delete / rename any items with a swipe gesture to free up your CloudApp storage. Good thing is, the app supports both portrait and landscape modes.
With Cloud2go, uploading documents, photos or videos and sharing direct links to them is blazing fast. The moment you add a file, it begins to upload which continues in the background even if you leave the app and want to do something else while the file uploads. As soon as the upload is finished, you’ll be notified with a vibration or a ‘ding’ sound. The app automatically copies the link to that file into your iPhone or iPod Touch’s clipboard for instant sharing with your contacts.
Lastly, Cloud2go also supports CloudApp’s “streaming API” which is a fantastic feature meaning you can see live how many people have viewed your upload any thing you upload via your Mac, it is instantly pushed to your iPhone or iPod touch. The app is also quite stable and I’ve experienced no crashes at all so far.
So, if you’re a CloudApp user and frequently share your stuff using an iPhone or iPod, Cloud2go is a must-have. It is a fantastic client with a great interface and excellent functionality.
