Drive is more elegant than ever

by Jolicloud Team

September 16th, 2014

At Jolicloud, we pay attention to all the little details of the user experience. From the choice of the color palette to animations, we want to make sure that you experience the best navigation with your content. We’ve introduced some improvements that we think make Drive even more powerful.

A new activity monitor


We’ve rethought the activity monitor in just about every way. Now, we display real time information related to your file transfers. Subtle animations also inform you on how much longer your transfer will take, when it is completed, and other relevant information.

Smarter notifications


Notifications have been redesigned to better fit the product. They are displayed when you upload your content, copy and paste files or when there’s an update available. Notifications are also easier to dismiss and won’t interrupt your work.

Redesigned breadcrumbs


As you will notice, breadcrumbs have been improved and simplified. We love them and we hope you will too.

We are excited to share this new work with you, and also about what’s coming soon. We can’t wait to hear your feedback on the product and on how we should improve the service.

try to add if possible. It offers a lot of storage and privacy. Idk if they allow you but it doesn’t hurt to try.

They don’t have an API actually but we’ll keep that service on our list for sure :)

Also Keep Bitcasa on your list!

Drive is so useful, It sorts the clutter. I have almost every account with each provider.

Hi there, I know many of us Mac users would Love Mac App to use on our desktops (Windows also i can imagine).

The Browser is slowly becoming a tool of the past & Apps are becoming more & more targeted tools these days. So Have you plans to make a Mac App / Windows App ? If so would you happen to have a ETA for this at the moment please.

Hi Gary,

We’re trying to perfect our web platform before moving on to the desktop. But in the future, it may be possible.

Thanks for your feedback!

I’ve been following you guys for a while now and you keep getting better and better, good job guys…

A few things, I see a count on the activity monitor sometimes but when I click on the icon nothing shows up.

Feature requests:
Pdf/in file search
Android/Mobile app (what happened to the old one?)
More services…!?! (Not that you don’t already have plenty of useful, tasty services)

I added Drive app and don’t really know how to do anything with it.
I see pages on the Internet published by people with “.jolicloud.” As part of their URL .
They display very nice desktop like pages and have app icons that take you by link to their personal pages on those apps.
I used to have an old computer I ran the Jolicloud OS with part ironed OS’s all optioned to boot thru grub or grub3 boot loader. All that is since become a foreign language and now I use only an IOs on an iPad.
What’s my next step to integrating DRIVE and accessing my iOs ..stuff?
I rember the old dell having access to things like Home, Desktop, and other files originally loded from windows exppro
This is kind of an I viable wall; that is of options, some apps are free but to run anything you have to have an account and sometimes even a separate device of a Pc or Home Computer, etc.
Reviews or commentaries I’ve read only explain how to click on adding other apps;, and the only brick wall here is there is no make a public page on a menu to build or help.
Knowing what help to ask for here, about a new a user as I can imagine.
Building on iPad instructions please, help!

We’re here to help, no worries.

First, Joli OS has been discontinued some time ago ( and now we’re focusing on our web service for online storage.

Regarding your issue, can you tell us more about what you’re trying to do?
Drive is to access the online storage you already have on 3rd party services, and you can also create additionnals accounts to cumulate more GB on Drive.
If you’re looking for the app launcher you had on Joli OS, this legacy part can be enabled from your Settings (go to the dropdown under your avatar Settings >Sidebar).

Hi. Love Drive. Are you considering to add “second factor authentication” for better security?

Glad you like it!
Yes, it’s under consideration.

An android app for joli will be a mega hit. Just imagine a market share of 86% worldwide population owns an android. Awaiting your presence at the play store.

Pas de nouvelles du bug dont je vous ai fait part récemment (app launcher qui disparait quand on veut faire défiler les pages avec un cliquer-glisser)?
Je vous ai fait une vidéo publiée sur la page facebook, je n’ai pas de nouvelles!
C’est ce qui m’empêche d’utiliser correctement Jolicloud!

Bonjour Alex !
Merci pour la vidéo. Je transmets les détails aux developeurs.
Nous reproduisons le bug. Celui-ci ne concernant pas directement Drive, il a une priorité intermediaire mais nous le corrigerons dès que possible.

Add Mega API and Bitcasa!!! And if its posible, is there anyway to visualize all storage accounts as just one? (Centralized storage)
