There’s no doubt that the Cloud can make things easier, but easier doesn’t “always” mean better. Beyond the convenience of being able to access your content wherever and whenever you want to, there are also additional security and backup measures to consider that you would never have to give a moment’s thought if you were simply storing data locally.
TappIn is a technology that allows for the convenience of the cloud with the safety of local data storage. Once installed on your home or work computer, all your content can be accessed from any mobile device or web-enabled computer – not just the content you remembered to upload to the cloud.
1. No Cloud Required: For starters: there’s no Cloud in use when you use TappIn, so all the worries that come into play when using the Cloud simply disappear.
2. A Secure Connection: TappIn works by giving you access to your own files from wherever you are, so you’re not storing your files on someone else’s insecure server, but on your own home computer.
3. No Sync Needed: Syncing with the Cloud can be a tedious, time consuming process. You have to sit there and wait for the sync to be completed when you’d rather close your laptop or turn your phone off and be done with it.
4. No Storage Fees: You don’t have to pay anyone to host your content with TappIn, since you handle that part of the deal.
5. Deep Compatibility: Some Cloud services demand that you use a specific OS, TappIn lets you access from any web-enabled device.
6. No File Transferring: If you want to listen to your MP3′s through the Cloud, get ready for a night of file transferring. With TappIn, you can tapp right in and start listening.
7. Access Anytime: Cloud servers go down frequently, your home computer doesn’t have to handle such a big workload.
8. Built in Media Capabilities: TappIn is specifically built with media playing in mind, so you can load up any media library you like.
9. Direct Sharing: You can share directly from your computer to your Facebook page, email or other outlet. It’s up to you. There are Cloud hosts that make this a little more difficult.
10. Share Any Size: Easily share through texting and messaging with TappIn. This isn’t true of all Cloud hosts.
TappIn works a lot like a traditional Cloud, but it removes some of the risks and expenses involved so that you can save and share with little worry.
