It’s only been a few weeks since we have released the new Jolicloud and your feedback has been great. We have spent the last week improving and polishing the user experience, and we’ve added two new services: YouTube and Vimeo!
We all have the same problem: we use a lot of different services that host our favorite pictures, music and videos. How can we access them in the nicest way possible?
A new image theater
With Instagram, Picasa, Facebook or Flickr and all the photos we have in our Dropbox, Box or Google Drive, we are exposed to a lot of photos. Because we love the idea of browsing through all of them quickly and easily, the team started improving and redesigning the photo experience.
Not only is it fast, awesome, and displays the photo location, but, as an added convenience, this image player can be used with left and right shortcut keys.
Make sure to add all your photo services on Jolicloud!
With the integration of SoundCloud a couple weeks ago we unveiled the prototype of a nice music player. It was great but not enough for the team that decided to give it a very nice facelift. A gorgeous design including album covers, playlist management, and automatic playthrough so you don’t need to click to the next song: Browse your entire Jolicloud while listening to your favorite tracks! We are making this player the new default music experience and it will be plugged not only to SoundCloud but also to all your other services (including Joli OS).
And because it’s all HTML5 you can listen to your favorite podcast on the new iPad mini while having a coffee and browsing your latest Instagram pictures (like I do!).
Welcome to video
We love YouTube and Vimeo and there are tons of great things (including music we can’t find elsewhere) but you have to admit the online video experience is not always suitable. We hope that our latest addition will become your new addiction: with the support of YouTube and Vimeo, you can now access all of your favorite videos as well as featured content and have all of your videos organized in one place. And the interface is quite amazing!
To install YouTube and Vimeo, go to the settings of your Jolicloud and scroll down (they are at the end of the list).
We hope you will enjoy our latest features! We can’t wait to hear your feedback.
