There’s good news, and a little bad news. In the early hours of Saturday morning Cloud Mate iOS was updated with support for the iPad. The bad news is there was a bug with Google Drive support in the App, which causes it to crash. There have been some other more minor issues, and we’ve bundled a fix for all of these up, and shipped it to Apple for review. Hopefully those fixes should be available to you soon.
With the bad news out of the way, we wanted to let everyone know we’ve updated Cloud Mate’s page (click to view)
to match its prominance in our activity these days! We hope you like it.
We have just released Cloud Mate for iOS 1.1 (check your devices, but we’ve added a pass code protector and fixed a couple of bugs). In addition we have updated Cloud Mate for Mac to 1.4.7 fixing an issue with initial iOS sync that we couldn’t release until the iOS update was out there.
Cloud Mate for iOS 1.2 has already been submitted to Apple with some UX improvements and the introduction of Evernote support, we expect a delay of about 6 days before that gets reviewed.
We can’t thank everyone enough for their support, our customers are the best.
We are delighted to announce the release of Cloud Mate 1.4.3 (check for updates in Cloud Mate)… Cloud Mate on the Mac
let’s you get to all your iCloud files in a single place. Cloud Mate for iOS (when teamed up with its big brother) does that for your mobile device!
In addition to its normal functions (letting you get at your Google Drive and Dropbox documents in a single place) when you are using Cloud Mate on the Mac, Cloud Mate iOS will light up with all your iCloud content, organised by application. You can even move iCloud files between apps, rename, or add in new documents from other applications. Hop over to Vimeo for a demo https://vimeo.com/63837646
We just wanted to highlight this in-depth review of Cloud Mate on the well known Tidbits site. Written by Matt Neuburg (John Gruber describes him as the best technical writer in the business), the article really takes an indepth look at Cloud Mate. We are delighted with both the attention and the conclusions (including some calls for us to improve a few things!).
We’ll leave you with our favourite quote:
If Apple had any sense, they’d look at Cloud Mate and slap their foreheads: “Oh, this is the sort of thing we should have done!”
We are delighted to announce Cloud Mate 1.4, with twist for the developers (and the very curious) amongst you this time! We are introducing the iCloud Monitor which displays in real-time all of the activity (uploads, downloads, conflicts, and errors) in your iCloud.
We use this ourselves to help debug our own iOS and Mac Apps that use iCloud. Debugging the iCloud will never be the same again!
