LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading online cloud storage provider, IDriveSync ( released new features and many improvements to their desktop, web, and mobile apps.

Out of Box Sync
With Out of Box, data present anywhere on a computer can be easily sent to the cloud for later access through the web or on mobile devices. This feature is particularly useful for data not accessed daily but still requiring easy access from any computer, such as previous semester projects, photos, video collections etc. Those who prefer not to move folders to the dedicated IDriveSync folder or to have their data occupy local storage on all their connected devices will also find this feature very convenient. Adding folders to Out of Box is simple, just right click, and add to Out of Box. A separate UI is also available for managing all Out of Box folders from desktop clients.

Single Link Sharing
This feature offers plenty of flexibility to users by allowing multiple files and/or folders to be shared with a single link. For example, if someone has several pictures in an album but wants to share only a few of them with friends, they can select the files they want and share them with a single link; this way the recipients can view the files as an album rather than as individual files. 

Timeline View
Offering an enhanced viewing experience, the new Timeline view sorts every photo and video in an IDriveSync account chronologically by month. This view includes photos and videos uploaded from all devices connected to the account. For users with multiple devices, this makes it much easier to locate photos or videos of an event without having to remember which device was specifically used to record them in the first place.

Pricing and Performance
IDriveSync offers the best value for storage among all online syncing services. Users can start with a 10GB account for free, with the ability to earn more free space; paid plans start from as low as $4.95 per month for a 150GB account and $14.95 per month for a 500GB account. 

Lab test results carried out internally also show that IDriveSync has superior performance, being 31% faster than competing sync services when syncing up data from the desktop and 19% faster when uploading data via a web browser.
