Advancements to YouSendIt Android App Boost Mobile Productivity
CAMPBELL, Calif. – May 30, 2012 - YouSendIt, Inc., the leading provider of file transfer and business content collaboration services for professional users from small businesses to the largest enterprises, today announced the launch of a custom application built for the Amazon Kindle Fire. When users download the app from the Amazon Appstore for Android and sign up within 30 days of today, YouSendIt will give them unlimited e-signatures on their Kindle Fire for the lifetime of their YouSendIt account. YouSendIt also added new features to its Android smartphone application available in other Android marketplaces.
"The prevalence of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device to work) underscores that professionals are looking for apps that are not only designed for a simple and easy user experience, but also help them be more productive," said Mihir Nanavati, vice president of product management and user experience, YouSendIt. "Our app does just that; users can view files, sign documents and share files and folders from their Kindle Fire. YouSendIt is constantly innovating new solutions that help you collaborate based on where and how you work."
Support for BYOD Movement
With BYOD rampant in the workplace, Kindle Fire is one more device that will begin to have both personal and business uses. According to an April 2012 Forrester Research, Inc. report,* "Amazon has been a pure consumer company, so far. The Kindle Fire will get them dragged into the office, just as Apple was. By 2013, Amazon will start adding email support, password policies, and remote wipe so users can use their Kindle Fires for access to corporate email."
YouSendIt's Android app is a natural fit for the Kindle Fire, helping professionals access all their content from one device. The app, including three new productivity features released today, makes it even easier to access content and collaborate on the go. YouSendIt's Android apps offer many advantages:
If desired to comply with BYOD policies, Workstream by YouSendIt™ offers IT the ability to enforce policies – including application-level passcode protection, remote wipe and blacklist/whitelisting for sharing content. In addition, Workstream encrypts data on the device, in transit and at rest.
Free Electronic Signatures For New Kindle Fire Users
Anyone who downloads the new YouSendIt app and signs up for an account from their Kindle Fire within 30 days will receive free unlimited e-signatures on their device. Users can quickly sign any document and securely send it – without having to print, scan, fax or ship it.
