IDriveSync adds Facebook integration and faster syncing

IDriveSync has added some new features to its cloud storage service to supply and secure file synchronization between PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones. The service can also be used as a remote backup solution. One key new feature for the service is Visual Sharing. Visual Sharing is a drag-and-drop online interface for sharing files with contacts.

The interface for Visual Sharing allows the user to set up a contact list and after locating files they want share, the user can then drag-and-drop those files on to the contacts to share the file. Another key new feature is Facebook integration. The Facebook integration allows the user to link a Facebook account to IDriveSync. Once the Facebook account is linked, the user can access their friends list as contacts and share photos or videos with Facebook friends via private messages and wall posts.

Using the Facebook integration photos can be uploaded once to the IDriveSync account and be available to post on Facebook and for other uses. IDriveSync offers 5 GB free storage space with 150 GB costing $4.95 monthly for $49.50 annually. Users needing more space can get 500 GB for $14.95 a month or $149.50 annually. Each account supports an unlimited number of connected devices that share the same sync space. The service added support for Macs back in 2010.
