Smith Micro Adds Easy Access to Cloud File Transfer for 16 Million StuffIt Users

Aug 28, 2014
New StuffIt Deluxe 16 lets Mac users safely store and share compressed photos, videos, music and more with Cloud Services Integration

ALISO VIEJO, CA – August 28, 2014 – Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) Productivity and Graphics group today launched StuffIt Deluxe® 16 for Mac with Cloud Services Integration, a new cloud-based file transfer feature that lets users send large files without the hassle of email attachments or FTP.  With the new release, more than 16 million StuffIt users can safely and easily share high quality photos, videos, music and more using the most popular cloud storage services, such as Dropbox®, Google Drive®, Microsoft OneDrive® and SendStuffNow®.

StuffIt provides best-in-class, patented compression methods for pixel-perfect compression of image files, audio files, PDFs and more. StuffIt works with virtually all file types and compression formats to ensure that photos, music, videos, PowerPoint presentations and other large files are shared or stored securely for personal or professional needs.  And now, StuffIt Deluxe 16 eliminates the manual burden of sharing files by automatically uploading them directly to the user’s favorite cloud-based file transfer account via a new StuffIt Destinations feature.

Creative professionals such as advertising executives, graphic designers and photographers can use StuffIt to prevent lengthy delays in sending large files, reduce the risk of losing valuable information, and ensure confidential data is protected.  For independent contractors and small firms, bandwidth is an important cost element that drives the economics of their businesses.  A 30 percent reduction in package size results in significant bandwidth savings. StuffIt uses exclusive, patent-protected technology to compress images to the minimum possible size without losing a single pixel of data.  For professionals and hobbyists alike, using StuffIt means you don’t have to sacrifice image quality, delivery speed and secure storage to manage electronic files cost-effectively.

"Over the past 20 years, Smith Micro has evolved StuffIt into the most advanced compression and encryption solution on the market," said Fahim Niaz, Senior Product Manager. "Our latest Cloud Services Integration enhancement provides fast, secure file transfer to make collaboration and commerce easy and reliable for creative professionals."

  • New StuffIt Destinations feature optimizes workflow by saving custom configurations for different compression formats into profiles so files can be dragged and dropped to various storage areas;  users can create custom tiles and store files in the cloud automatically
  • Cloud Services Integration is available for Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and SendStuffNow, letting users easily upload archives and files to their favorite cloud service
  • StuffIt Archive Manager™ is now more efficient with a new QuickLook search feature; streamlined navigation helps users quickly open, expand, create, verify, and schedule archiving
