LIBOX Service Adds Free iPad App, Radically Simplifies Sharing HD Media

LIBOX Introduces New Features & Major Platform Updates

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - LIBOX, the company rethinking the digital media experience, today announced a radically simplified process for sharing HD media and a free iPad app. Now you can instantly share complete HD video and photo albums with as few as two clicks of the mouse. LIBOX also introduced significant new features and platform updates to improve the overall performance of the free service, with more developments slated for the coming months.

"At LIBOX, we're focused on making it easy to share your full media collection, across your devices and with your friends -- without compromises," said Erez Pilosof, founder and CEO of LIBOX.

"With vastly simplified sharing and the new iPad app, LIBOX is taking the concept of 'media anywhere' to the next level. We offer a free, unlimited service, across multiple platforms to let users enjoy and easily share their full HD media collection, whenever and wherever they want.

"One of the main reasons I created LIBOX was to challenge the status quo for media fans: a free service that makes it possible to really get the most out of our media collections. No one is doing this the way we are -- and there is still a lot more to come."

The free LIBOX service lets you play, view and share your entire HD media collection -- video, photo, music and documents -- from any device. LIBOX will never limit the amount or type of media you can play and share through your LIBOX account, including media that is shared with you. The patent-pending LIBOX technology intelligently syncs and streams media to create a seamless user experience for all types of media, across all types of devices -- without depending on costly cloud storage. Check out the LIBOX video to see how it works.

LIBOX Radically Simplified HD Media Sharing

  • Share your HD media in as few as two clicks, even from mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone
  • Simple and safe sharing options:
    • "All Friends": Share your HD media with all friends or specific groups that you create
    • "People": Share your HD media with specific individuals
    • "Only Me": Create a private photo album, video or audio playlist or mixed media collection within your LIBOX account

Free LIBOX iPad App

The LIBOX iPad app allows users to instantly enjoy and share their entire media collection, no matter where it is stored locally, without worrying about storage limitations. Because the LIBOX iPad app offers the same full experience and interface as the LIBOX desktop and web apps, there is no need to learn any new tricks. The LIBOX iPad app joins a quickly expanding line-up of supported devices, with desktop apps for Windows PC and Mac, an iPhone app, as well as support for all major web browsers, including Safari and Android mobile browsers. Next up is a LIBOX Android app.
