Bitcasa, the cloud storage startup that promises infinite storage, free for now, is expanding its coverage with its first batch of mobile apps. Bitcasa is now offering an Android app and a Windows 8/RT app with an iOS one coming in early 2013.
There are already desktop client apps, a web client that works on mobile and even a Chrome extension.
But a solid set of mobile apps is a must for any cloud storage service. It's actually the absolute minimum in this highly competitive market.
The company has been offering infinite
, or essentially infinite, cloud storage to its users, but the service has been in beta.
As soon as the beta period is over, in February 2013, Bitcasa
is going to charge $10 for the infinite storage option, though there's probably going to be a free version as well.
Still, $10 a month for all the storage you'd ever need is significantly cheaper than anything its competitors can offer.
