One of the great boom industries in the app world over the last few years has been the introduction of cloud storage for your media. Dropbox, Amazon and Google Drive are some that come to mind immediately. So why would you bother to look at another? Well, Streem Drive is a new media storage application that gives you unlimited space to store, stream and share your important movies, photos and music from the cloud for just twenty bucks a month. There is a big difference, however, between Streem Drive and other cloud-based storage apps. Not only does it take up zero space on your computer, but it also gives you instant access to your files on any of your devices with no lag whatsoever.
Streem Drive is a magic drive on your device that lives in the cloud, gives you unlimited space, frees up space on your computer or mobile devices while instantly giving you access to view or share your content anywhere you are and anytime you wish. Unlike other cloud storage services, this app doesn’t require you to store your files on your hard drive and then sync them to the cloud. All your files are securely stored on Streem Drive's servers and streamed to you on-demand. All media is converted on-the-fly so you can access it seamlessly regardless of your device or bandwidth. This means that if you wanted to open a 2GB video on your desktop, it will play immediately in your native player while the app buffers the upcoming chunks in the background. Opening a file on your any of your devices or operating system - whether it be Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, Web, tablet or mobile - becomes as easy as double clicking on it inside explorer or finder. How do they do it for the price, you may ask? Well, they use de-duplication and compression algorithms that allow them to smartly estimate your data usage and store lots of data at low costs. As a consequence they pass these benefits on to you - letting you store as much data as you need without ever having to think about running out of space.
There has been a lot of talk about cloud storage and it's cost to the consumer and many have doubted Streem Drive's ability to offer unlimited storage for just US$20 per month. Dropbox takes files stored on your hard drive and backs them up to the cloud and offer just 200GB for the same cost. Streem Drive's service keeps your files stored securely and completely in the cloud rather than on your device, makes them available immediately at the click of a button - saving terabytes of space - and with no lag time. The app offers unlimited storage for free to everyone that shares their unique link during its beta period after signing up. After the beta period, you'll receive an additional month of free unlimited storage with the option of staying on at $20/month (discounts will be given to all beta users,) or switching to a free plan - which offers up to 20GB of storage - with all the benefits and at no cost.
