Collaboration and feedback are an important part of developing art. Creativity can explode when working with others. But are you worried that when you put your work online, especially unfinished work, that it can end up in the hands of the wrong people? Want more control of your art while still being able to share it? Now you can! CloudLocker gives you all kinds of control while sharing! Before CloudLocker we had to put our creative work on public sites like YouTube or Facebook where we had little control over who could view our work and give us feedback and collaboration. Now, thanks to CloudLocker, we have the ability to share our creativity with others in new revolutionary ways. Upload your work onto your CloudLocker and then decide who you want to share it with. You can give any recipient the ability to download your work or if you want to be careful you can just give them the ability to stream or view your work without downloading it. If you want to be extra secure you can also make sure that the recipient is the only person that can open a file and they won’t be able to forward it to others. Your creative work is safe and secure for sharing, collaborating, and feedback until you’re ready to release it to the world! Download this Tech Tip as a PDF here…
A recent article from Forbes discusses the importance of having cloud experience on your resume. The writer, Joe McKendrick, goes on to list 5 reasons why knowledge of the cloud should be on everyone’s resume. It is clear from this article that as cloud becomes a prominent part of technology that this will be a key piece of knowledge that will be required of many job seekers. As more and more companies are adapting to the cloud this piece of technology is no longer only for the high-tech crowd. Companies in all industries are using the cloud in one form or another. It is important in this day and age for a job-seeker to show employers what they can bring to the table. As the Forbes article illustrates the variety of skills that are tied into being familiar with the cloud can distinguish you from other applicants. “Being well-versed or adept at cloud doesn’t have to necessarily suggest tech savvy, but it reflects a high degree of resourcefulness — you know where to turn to get the job done.” McKendrick writes Employers are impressed by potential employees with cloud experience. By not having any knowledge about the cloud a person will be left behind, similar to how the computer illiterate was left behind during the boom of the PCs.

Most of us are very worried about our phones being lost or stolen not so much because of the value of the phone itself but because we’re worried about our personal content ending up in the wrong hands. It’s scary to think of a stranger having access to our personal pictures, videos, and documents. CloudLocker can eliminate that worry once and for all! All you have to do is upload all your important personal files into your CloudLocker and leave them off your phone. Then using your phone’s StoAmigo app you can have full access to those personal files whenever you need them.
