CAMPBELL, Calif. – January 23, 2012 – YouSendIt, Inc., a leading cloud file collaboration service, reaffirms its deep commitment to Mobile by launching brand new mobile apps for iPhone, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. All apps have been totally re-imagined from the ground up to meet the needs of an increasingly mobile user base.
These new mobile solutions serve the growing number of corporate employees and other professionals using their own smartphones and tablets for work. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement means people need intuitive, multiplatform tools like YouSendIt to access and enhance their digital files across devices, as well as for on-the-go sharing with colleagues, clients and other collaborators.
A completely rebuilt iOS app
YouSendIt’s new iOS app provides a comprehensive and enhanced mobile service for accessing documents, presentations, video and more from anywhere. Users can do everything from sending and storing files to sharing folders and signing documents using their iPhone, with any changes securely synced and instantly available for other devices and people.
Aside from completely recreating the YouSendIt iPhone experience, the revamped app also has a number of great new features designed to help users get the job done whether they are on-site with a client, waiting in an airport lounge or working from home.
The new YouSendIt iOS app is now free to download from the App Store for iPhone or iPod touch. Try it now by

A multi-platform solution
The launch of the new YouSendIt iPhone app comes hot on the heels of the recently launched Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Samsung S-pen apps, providing users of these devices with the same great cloud collaboration service already available on other platforms such as Android.
Each app offers the YouSendIt technology our users have grown to love as well as increased functionality on several popular devices and platforms. Just one example is how YouSendIt partnered with Nokia to create exclusive features for their smartphone customers.“We are very excited about the YouSendIt Windows Phone 8 app developed between YouSendIt, Microsoft and Nokia. The YouSendIt app with Near Field Communication (NFC) delivers powerful sharing capabilities to Nokia consumers and businesses,” says Bryan Biniak, VP and GM Global Partner and Application Development, Nokia. “The app provides Lumia users a seamless solution for sharing files anytime, anywhere. Add in unique, exclusive features like NFC and Nokia Lumia owners can share content with a simple tap of their phones.”
The BYOD effect
According to global research firm Forrester, 350 million employees will use smartphones by 2016, with 200 million choosing to bring their own device to work. This seismic systemic shift will see professional users demanding the same kind of end-user experiences in business as they enjoy in their personal lives. Businesses are already responding to the consumerization of IT by implementing BYOD policies and are searching for simple, safe and secure multipurpose mobile solutions.
“YouSendIt recognizes mobile devices are important for how we share information,” said Eric Hart, Network/Infrastructure Manager at premium golf equipment brand, PING. “Teams at PING use YouSendIt on smartphones, tablets and traditional computers to collaborate with our partners, clients and vendors for a more consistent and secure experience. YouSendIt has reduced the obstacles and effort it took to share information.”
