Making little things count!

With much of the heavy lifting of our Amazon S3 transition behind us we've been able to spend some time making the site more fun to use. Today we released a great package of 'little' enhancements that we hope will make myDataBus much more fun to use!

  • Access your address books when mailing a File and Telling a Friend about myDataBus.com We've added a widget to access email addresses stored in Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, Plaxo, AOL and more!

  • Improved access to features from the My Files and Group Files pages- click the new "options" button on the right side to work with your files.

  • Better visibility for your file information- hold your mouse over a filename on the My Files or Group Files pages, additional file information will pop up. Try it with an image!

  • Vastly improved album creation! We are painfully aware that our album implementation left a lot to be desired... and frankly it's still not where we want it to be, but today we've fixed 2 of the most annoying parts-- creating new albums and being able to preview images. Try it-- click on "My Photo Albums" then "Create New Photo Album." We know there is more to do; we'd love to hear your suggestions!

  • Improved upgrade options- although our 5GB of storage and about 30GB per month of transfer for public files is pretty generous, we've created a unique a-la-carte system for upgrading exactly the features you need, as often as you like. Check it out!
