Fiabee is a cloud-based file storage service that we first covered back at the end of last year. Now, the Spain and San Francisco based startup has rolled out new services that make it a compelling choice for anyone considering the best place to store their files in that fluffy place we call the cloud.
First up, a desktop app has been introduced for Windows (with a Mac version to follow soon), meaning that it’s easy to sync files on your computer with your Fiabee account, making them available via its mobile apps or within the browser. Additionally, folders can be shared with others via Fiabee. Individual permissions can be assigned to separate folders, allowing you to decide whether the recipient gets read, write or edit access to files.
Of course, files are all well and good, but these days we don’t tend to think so much about files themselves – especially when we’re using online services like Flickr. So, Fiabee has introduced sync support for images on your Flickr, Facebook and Picasa accounts as well as your contacts from Google and LinkedIn. This means that all your photos and contacts are backed up and accessible from wherever you can access your Fiabee account, making it especially easy to store copies on your computer if you own a Windows PC.
Google Docs integration now has two-way sync, meaning that anything you put on the ‘Google Docs’ local folder will be automatically uploaded to your Google Docs account, and vice-versa.
Finally, Fiabee is launching Fiabee for Teams, an enterprise solution allowing businesses to set up a closed group of users and set the amount of storage space and file permissions for each one. This allows Fiabee to be used as a ‘private cloud’ for companies to use internally.
In all, Fiabee, which already has Android and Chrome apps available, is shaping up as credible contender against the likes of Dropbox and Box.net. Fiabee is currently free, concentrating on building up its feature set before introducing a price structure. The new features are available from today at Fiabee.com.
