Quik.io Lets You Get Your Media Files Across All Devices


I don’t have a tablet device yet, but I do find it hard to access my files, especially media files across the two notebooks in the house, an iPod and my very cool and smart…Android phone.Quik.io

Its no surprise that with the increase in the number of devices that the typical user carries around today, there’s also an increase in the number of places where they store their digital media. Correct?

Quik.io could be the answer to your prayers.

This start-up Quik.io is hoping to make it easier for such users to access all their digital files, regardless of the device that they’re on.

Here is how our Quik.io works; through an app, users are able to easily synchronize content across devices, enabling them to wirelessly move their photos and other media files to PCs or Macs. Once stored there, the application automatically converts files into useable formats that can be accessed on other devices. That media can be stored on tablet devices like the iPad for access offline, and it can be sent to family and friends.

So how did it all began?

Once Upon A Time… The Cisco entrepreneur Michael Chen was very …very frustrated by the inability to get all of his content in one place and easily share it with friends and then of course he found a way, which he then created so as to organize and access and share those files no matter where he was.

He got Xumin Wu and Budi Sutardja, both from Cisco, to join him to make the app a reality… and walaaa! Quik.io was created.

Now the team is hoping to make it easier for users to automatically synchronize content between the iPad and PC, rather than using cloud services like Dropbox or Google Drive to store and access that content. The advantage to doing so is that it can ensure file formats are correct for streaming over the Internet.

For now, the startup has an iPad app, and is also working on iPhone and Android apps, which should be coming soon.

So where is the catch?

Storing content in the Quik.io fashion is easy but to access it from a mobile device when away from home, the “source” device has to be on and connected to the Internet.

As a result, Quik.io will be competing more and more with services like Picturelife, which do the same thing, but in the cloud.
