Updated photo viewer

February 24, '12 by Kevin Woods

 photo slideshow viewer

The SafeCopy web file manager has been update to include an integrated photo viewer.  There is now a small camera icon on the right hand side of each folder.  If you click on the icon, it will create a photo album  view based on the images inside that folder.  You can click-to-zoom, play an slideshow or view full screen.

One of the best features of the updated album viewer is that it only takes one click.  With many slideshows or albums, you first have to select the images and create the album.  However with SafeCopy your folders are organized online just as they are on your computer.  So if you navigate to photos of your recent trip to the Bahamas, you can revisit your trip with a single click.

SafeCopy Supporting Invisible Children with Proceeds from 1,000 Backups 

SafeCopy found a way to give back this holiday season. On December 10th, SafeCopy will be giving away 1,000 licenses for only $10 (normally $50). The best part is that 100% of the proceeds go towards Invisible Children Protection Plan.

Go to the SafeCopy homepage on December 10th to purchase our 1 year 200GB plan for $10.

Problem in Central Africa

The LRA, a brutal rebel group responsible for Africa’s longest-running armed conflict, has murdered and mutilated 
innocent civilians for more than two decades, across four countries. The key to the LRA’s continued survival has been 
the kidnapping of children who are conscripted into their ranks, a number that has reached over 30,000 according 
to UN reports.

How Invisible Children is helping

Invisible Children created a local early-warning radio network called the LRA Crisis Tracker.  This makes attack information publicly available through a digital map, a breaking newsfeed, and a mobile application resulting in improved efforts to combat LRA atrocities and help communities in need.

Our small part

We here at SafeCopy are humbled and impressed with how Invisible Children has used technology to help in their mission to provide freedom for children and entire communities in Africa.  We are proud to donate 100% of the proceeds to help fund their Protection Plan to build more radio towers and rehabilitation centers for former LRA child solders.

Terms and Conditions

1,000 licenses of 200GB for only $10. First come, first served.

Starts at 12:00AM on December 10th and ends at 11:59PM on December 10th Eastern Time (-5:00GMT).

You can be a brand new to SafeCopy or upgrade an existing free 3GB SafeCopy account.

Only one purchase per email account, however as many per person as you like.

No refunds. 100% goes to Invisible Children.

July 06, '11 by Troy Hickerson

Android's share of the smartphone market is still blowing away all competitors in the U.S. according to new data from comScore. The only company that's hanging on is Apple, which saw its share of the market tick up ever so slightly. Chart provided by Business Insider.

SafeCopy is launching an Android app later this month so you can access the files in your online account.  We are also updating the Apple iPhone and iPad applications later this month.

Google's Facebook

June 29, '11 by Troy Hickerson

Google's long expected second shot at taking on Facebook in the social networking space has arrived in the form of the Google+ Project.  It has some interesting twists on the social networking model. Google calls it real-life sharing throughout the web.  With +Circles you can share what matters, with the people who matter most.  Not all relationships are created equal. So in life we share one thing with college buddies, another with parents, and almost nothing with our boss. The problem is that today’s online services turn friendship into fast food—wrapping everyone in “friend” paper—and sharing really suffers.

Read more about it directly from Google.
