SAN FRANCISCO, July 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kwilt, an award-winning personal media solutions innovator, today announced the launch of the Kwilt Shoebox Plus, a device that turns any memory key or external drive into a private, personal cloud where consumers can offload photos and videos from their smartphones and other devices and still access their content anytime, anywhere.

The Kwilt Shoebox Plus is platform agnostic and includes all of the great features of its sister product, the Kwilt Shoebox Mini, plus even faster processing speeds thanks to its Quad-Core CPU, 5 GHz Wireless-AC network and the ability to connect directly to your router through fast Ethernet. Photos are uploaded in seconds, and its additional USB ports allow up to 4 storage devices to be connected simultaneously. With the Plus, consumers can:

  • Offload mobile photos and videos seamlessly at faster speeds
  • Enjoy unlimited mobile storage by connecting up to 4 USB storage devices to the Kwilt Shoebox
  • Maintain original, full-resolution photos and videos
  • Access photos and videos from anywhere, on any mobile platform
  • No longer pay monthly storage subscription fees

Unlike commercial cloud providers, Kwilt users can rest easy knowing no one else has access to their photos and videos – not even Kwilt. The Kwilt platform also aggregates several sources of cloud and home content (Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos, Dropbox, etc.) into a single, indexed and convenient interface. This allows consumers to search and access all of their photos – including those stored across various cloud platforms – in one place.

“Consumers need a way to free up their mobile phone’s storage while enjoying anytime, anywhere access and retaining full control over their precious memories,” said Marc-Antoine Benglia, CEO of Kwilt. “Kwilt Shoebox Plus was designed based on the market feedback for Kwilt Shoebox Mini, taking into consideration action cam videographers, drone hobbyists and amateur photographers’ requests for a more powerful solution to fit their advanced needs.”
