File Upload Benchmark

Like with many things in life, there is always more than one way to do a thing. The same is true for file transfers on the AKiTiO MyCloud network drive.

You can choose between several differen ways and network protocols to upload, download and manage your files on the network drive. Which method to choose depends on how and where you would like to access the files as well as your personal preferences.

There is no one "best" solution, so in this article, we would like to help you make the right decision yourself.

MyCloud App

Unlock the full potential of your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad! The AKiTiO MyCloud App allows users of the MyCloud personal cloud server to access their digital content stored on the MyCloud unit from a mobile device. Open the app and gain access to your music, videos, photo libraries and other digital documents no matter if at home or on the road.

The latest version of the MyCloud App for iOS (v1.6.0) includes many small changes to improve the overall user experience and a couple of minor bug fixes but it also comes with a new and very useful feature. You can now open your documents in other external apps! This means that if the MyCloud App is unable to display the file that you would like to open, you can download it to your mobile device and then open it in another app that is able to open that particular format.

The new functions of the latest version 1.5.3 of the MyCloud App for iOS are thanks to you and your feedback. As requested by our MyCloud users, you can now sort the files according to different criteria (name, type, date) and playback music files continuously, rather than having playback stop after every file.

MyCloud Mini 5 stars

The Holiday season has arrived along with all of the joy and happiness that comes with it. Here at AKiTiO we get happiness and joy from seeing our MyCloud Mini listed as the only 5 star rated Personal Cloud NAS on Amazon.com.

When we started this personal cloud project we initially introduced it to many of our OEM customers. The responses that we received were mostly negative. The project managers and decision makers did not see a market for this type of product and did not think that consumers would be able to understand how to use it. While that may very well be true for many, if not most of the current personal cloud NAS products on the market, it is definitely NOT true for the AKiTiO MyCloud Mini.
