We use SSB’s ourselves quite a lot for email and also for online calendar applications. We thought therefore it would be good fun to release SSB’s for some of our apps. The first one we threw together is for SMEStorage. Just download it, unzip it, drag it to your applications folder, desktop or Mac Dock and voila you can start using your own SSB for SMEStorage.
The porting of SMEStorage as a native IPhone application is almost complete. We are now waiting for approval from Apple to allow us to post it for free on the Apple App Store. SMEStorage for App Store includes the following features:
Picnik photo editing has been integrated into SMEStorage. This means that you can edit any photos you have uploaded to SMEStorage seamlessly with Picnik and then save the result back to SMEStorage.
If you click the link on any image you will see that you now have an option to upload to Picnik where you can then edit your photo. Once you have made your changes you can choose “Back to SMEStorage” from Picnik and your picture will be saved back to you SMEStorage account.
Picnik has the following features:
We’ve updated our Rest API to accommodate Public Files. We’ve had quite a few suggestions for the API which are mainly centered around what people want to see on top of Amazon S3. We think this is becoming more important as Amazon S3 is becoming increasingly important as storage place for Cloud data offerings. Essentially our REST API is a layer on top of this that provides business functionality API’s for the data. There are of course other initiatives with providing a file system API for Amazon S3 but we have concentrated more on providing business functionality for stored data which we think will become increasingly important moving forward. This of course will be accessible to all S3 users when we finish the work to open up our platform to any S3 User.
The email backup feature has been live on the site for a while now so we thought is was about time we did a feature on it. To access the Email Backup feature click on “My Backups” in the file tree and you will see the email backup toolbar.
Fill in the account details as below:
Once you have filled in the account details click the email backup icon and if you have configured this correctly then your emails will being to backup and you can can access them from your account or though your iPhone. If you get an error choose edit and then change your details – you may need to check the secure email checkbox.
We would recommend that you clean out your email account from very large files before you do the backup otherwise this may take a while.
