With the latest update to Cubby you may find yourself earning more gigs, uploading files quicker, and altogether being better informed about the status of your syncing. Plus, we launched a few other neat items, too (Cubby Preview program, anyone?). Check out the details below.
Referral link social integration
Share your personal referral link directly to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. The more friends and colleagues you refer to Cubby, the more gigs you earn. Remember: they need to install the app.
Bandwidth usage improvements
We’ve introduced the first in a series of improvements to control bandwidth usage. With this release, upload bandwidth is now automatically adjusted by your computer’s operating system to optimize upload speed. Download bandwidth is not impacted. In a future release we plan on introducing manual control over bandwidth usage and limits. These improvements are in response to your comments and votes for the item Bandwidth Usage Control.
Improved sync status messaging
For an active download/upload, Cubby displays the percentage remaining rather than the file count and size.
For a new cubby, the progress spinner appears immediately and Cubby informs you that it is “determining what to sync” as the first stage in the sync process.
Coming soon: Cubby preview program
Join the Cubby preview program to get the latest features and fixes before they are officially released. Right now, we don’t have any features available for you to try. But, when we do, we’ll be sure to let you know.
As we do with every release, we’ve introduced a number of performance improvements.
Ready to dig in? Cubby updates automatically, so look for version 188.8.131.5201– you’re probably ready to go.
