Online apps and storage for free: Glide

Boot Camp feature for Friday, April 8, 2011

Applications you can use just about everywhere.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Google and Microsoft have been offering what are called cloud based apps.   But the most versatile of all comes from a company called Transmedia, which is out with a new version of Glide.  Use a PC, Mac or Windows…a smartphone..or a tablet… iPad or Android….and you can work on documents, presentations and other cloud based programs…and it’s free.  CEO Donald Leka…

“In fact it comes with 30 gigabytes of free storage.  So you can think of it as an extension of your tablet PC.   You simply go right up to GlideLife.com, you register for an account, and you now have access to 30 gigabytes of extended storage and a whole suite of permissions based collaboration tools.”

On PCs, you can use those tools when you’re offline as well.   The site again is GlideLife.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
