TransMedia on Monday announced that its
Glide Mobile service works with the iPhone. Glide Mobile is free to use for its basic account, which gives you 2GB of storage.
Glide Mobile works with a client application for the Mac or PC called Glide Sync. You can use it to synchronize your photos, music, videos, documents, Sunbird and iCal calendars, Thunderbird and Address Book contacts, Safari, Camino and Firefox bookmarks from your Mac to an Internet account you can access from any computer Web browser.
Once synced to your online account, Glide Mobile uses its “compatibility engine” to transcode that content so you can replay it and access it regardless of how fast your Internet connection is or what the capabilities are of the Web browser you’re looking at the content from. It manages the proper format and bit-rate for your connection. It handles Word, PDF, image formats, MP3s, QuickTime movies and many other document formats.
What’s more, you can control access privileges — making content available to others, and adjusting how they can manipulate it — view only, download and modify, for example, or even the number of times they can view the file or the time period they can view it in.
If you’re not lucky enough to have an iPhone yet, Glide Mobile also supports devices from RIM/BlackBerry, Nokia, HP, Motorola, Palm, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and others.
