Cloud Updates: Dropbox Beta, SugarSync Remote Wipe, LogMeIn Adds Cubby

Dropbox before & after

This week, three of the bigger cloud storage providers updated their client apps with new features: Automatic screenshots for Dropbox, remote wipe for SugarSync and Cubby is now bundled with LogMeIn.

First up is a new “experimental build” of Dropbox for Mac and Windows which adds the ability to automatically upload new screenshots to your account as they are taken. Version 2.3.12 also introduces a new “Move to Dropbox” contextual menu, which makes it easier to relocate files into the parent folder of your account.

On the Mac, the latest build also introduces Import from iPhoto, yet another step Dropbox is making toward hosting all of your photos in the cloud. The feature only works with iPhoto 7.0 and above, and keep in mind, this is considered a beta build, so there may still be a few bugs lurking about.

Meanwhile, SugarSync announced Thursday that its latest Remote Wipe feature has now trickled down from business account customers to individual accounts, offering a way to remotely wipe the contents of any of the computers attached to your account.

To utilize Remote Wipe, you’ll need to have the latest version of the Mac or Windows software installed as well as being a paid personal SugarSync account holder — free users unfortunately won’t have access to this new security feature.

Last but certainly not least, LogMeIn announced that its latest iOS update integrates the company’s cloud storage service Cubby, allowing users to access their free 5GB of storage without taking a trip to the dedicated Cubby app. The two services already share a single login, so the inclusion of Cubby into the parent app will be a nice productivity boost for those who use it. The update is now available from the App Store.
