ZumoCast Now Publicly Available as Easiest Way to Get Personal Music and Video on the iPad and iPhone

New Free Application Turns PC into a Personal Cloud to Provide Anywhere-Anytime Access to Media Libraries and Other Files

BURLINGAME, Calif.--()--ZumoCast, a new service that lets you enjoy all of your personal videos and music libraries at home or on-the-go, publicly launched today. The new application is now generally available, offering the same flawless video streaming experience as the beta version and for the first time enabling music lovers to play their entire iTunes libraries from their iPads and iPhones. Additionally, the new version of ZumoCast now allows you to download your videos, music, and other files directly to your devices so you can enjoy them later, even if you are offline.

ZumoCast is specifically designed to make accessing personal music and video simple, making it the perfect app for media lovers. The application works by turning your computer into a personal cloud server that streams your media libraries to your mobile devices upon demand. As a result, content on your computer becomes instantly accessible, without having to wait for it to upload or requiring you to pay the monthly fees otherwise associated with online storage and sync services.

“The iPad is perfectly suited for enjoying your media library, but it is often difficult to get your music and videos on your device in the first place,” said David Zhao, CEO of ZumoCast. “ZumoCast not only makes it easy to wirelessly sync all your media with your devices, but it does so without requiring you to upload it to the cloud, which is both time-consuming and costly.”

ZumoCast uses Hybrid Cloud Technology, an elegant mix of personal and cloud storage, to deliver the following features:

  • iTunes integration – ZumoCast is the perfect app to help you play your entire iTunes library on your iPad and iPhone, even when you have too much music to store it all locally. It supports iTunes playlist and album art and allows you to enjoy continuous music playback, even in the background with iOS4.
  • Video streaming and transcoding – ZumoCast streams videos to your iPad/iPhone as you access them. Videos are transcoded on the fly to provide the optimal viewing experience so you need not worry about file format consistency.
  • Documents – ZumoCast lets you access the documents you need on the road and download them for editing online or offline.
  • Wireless syncing – ZumoCast streams your files to your devices as you access them, but you can also opt to sync any files to your iPad/iPhone locally in advance so they are available for offline use.
  • Web Access – ZumoCast lets you access your video, music and documents through any web browser.

ZumoCast is available in the Apple App Store as an application for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch at www.appsto.re/zumocast. The mobile application will direct users to also download ZumoCast software on their Macs or PCs from www.zumocast.com and explain that their content will also be accessible from any web browser.
