We’re excited to bring a great, new update to the Cubby desktop app today which makes several enhancements to the Cubby architecture, including syncing improvements.
To make sure you’re running the latest, go to your Cubby settings and click About. If it says version 188.8.131.5298, you’re good to go. If not, download the latest version or simply exit Cubby and then re-launch it for an automatic update.
Hint: if your app says “Connecting…” on the bottom, that might be a sign your app requires the new update.
We’ve got some mobile updates for you this week. A few of the features are Android-only and are meant to catch-up with features already found in our iOS app. But for iOS users, you’ll be happy to know we’ve got some news for you too (see next paragraph)– plus, we should mention Cubby works great on the new iOS 6!
Mobile devices added to cubby.com (iOS and Android): Your mobile devices (iOS and Android) are now shown on your device list at cubby.com. But the real win is: now if you delete the device from your list, the app automatically logs you out and removes offline content. That’s a huge advantage for those looking for additional security features (think: if you left your phone in the back of a taxi cab).
View/Edit Files in 3rd party apps: Android users can now open up their files stored in the cloud with their favorite 3rd party apps (like QuickOffice for your docs, and Picasa for your photos) directly from the Cubby app. Need to make a few quick changes to a doc on-the-go? You’re covered. Appaholics, this one’s for you.
Upload to the cloud: Now that we’ve told you that you can open and edit files with 3rd party apps, how about uploading those back into the cloud? That’s part of the update, too. You can now send files to Cubby from any app that supports the Android Send feature. So that means, the year-end report your boss emailed to you this morning can be instantly uploaded to your shared cubbies before your team can say “where is it?”.
Android also brings a few smaller enhancements like landscape mode and some enhancements to image previews and music playing.
So beta users: how often are you using your mobile device to get to your cubbies in the cloud?
We got some really great feedback when we put out the ability to share just one window instead of your whole screen. You loved it. You also asked for an easier way to switch between windows. So, we went back to work and came up with a cool little tool to help you do just that:
Here, you can see I’m sharing just one window on my screen. We’ve added a controller in the upper right (which you can move around, if you want), and when you click on it, it easily allows you to choose another open window to share. So now you don’t have to go back to the main menu to switch windows anymore. Easy, right?
What else would you like to see in window sharing? Let us know in the comments.

This week we’ve unleashed another update into the wild which gives you greater accessibility of your content and more control over what you’re storing in Cubby.
The first is the introduction of WebDAV support. This means your cloud-enabled cubbies are now available via a Cubby WebDAV server so you can get to them from any WebDAV compatible device or application. Now your other favorite apps– like Pages, Keynote, Numbers and LogMeIn– can harness the power of Cubby and bring your docs right into your application. For WebDav login information visit https://webdav.cubby.com.
The second update enhances how you handle file versions. As you already know, each time a change is made to a file in your cubby, that revision is saved in the file’s archive. In this week’s update, you can now manually delete archived versions for files, folders and cubbies. The more archives you delete, the more space you get back.
WebDav users, what’s your integration plan? And version aficionados, to delete or not to delete?
What do you want first – the good news, or the even better news?
The good news is that join.me pro users can now schedule meetings with their personal link. Check out the screenshot below – you now have the option to schedule meetings with a random, one-time code or the personal link you’ve created for yourself.
The even better news is that we are planning on adding even more goodies to the join.me scheduler, so stay tuned to the blog for updates.
What’s the next feature you’d like to see in the scheduler? Leave your suggestion in the comments.
