We just wanted to let you know that HomePipe just received a $1.1M boost from a group of private investors that are really excited about our growth in subscribers and utilization of our awesome service. So thanks to all our customers who signed up for HomePipe and use it every day!
What are we going to do with our money? We’re going to do a 15 second Super Bowl commercial! Just kidding. We’re going to expand our service to give our customers the most amazing solution possible. HomePipe is revolutionizing the ability for today’s mobile consumers and professionals to quickly, easily and securely access, view and share digital content. High resolution photos, videos, presentations, documents, and music stored on a home or work computer can be accessed and shared from any web browser or mobile device.
Today, HomePipe works on Apple® iPhone® and iPadTM, Google® AndroidTM, and Windows® Phone 7 – all without cloud storage, uploading, syncing, organizing or complex software and hardware installations requiring additional fees. Just imagine…no matter where you have content – even in cloud services – you could instantly access and share it with anyone, anywhere – anytime using any browser or mobile device.
How big is the opportunity? Here’s just a few data points.
- Recently Apple surpassed 10 billion app downloads with billions more expected for Apple, Android and BlackBerry®.
- Gartner estimates 17.7 billion downloads for 2011—a 117 percent over its 8.2 billion download estimate for 2010 and this number is expected to grow to nearly 200 billion downloads by 2014.1
- Nielsen’s projects that by mid-2011, a smartphone user base of 150 million, 300 million mobile subscribers, 120 million mobile web users and 90 million users will be streaming video.
Combine the figures above with the average home storing nearly nine Terabytes of content by 20132, and the opportunity for a secure digital content solution that easily enables consumers and professionals to access and share photos, documents, music and videos from a single view will be…big!
More good news. HomePipe was recently named as a Top Global 500 App– an award covering all devices and formats, with forty different top app categories and expert reviews of the best 500 apps available around world.
The HomePipe application is still available as a Free Edition that gives full access to the service, but limits the number of uses. HomePipe’s Premium Edition provides unlimited use for $23.99 annual subscription.
