Connected Data now allows mobile app integration with Transporter

At long last, Connected Data has announced a developer program for its Transporter platform. The news means third-party iOS and OS X developers can now integrate their apps with Transporter, in a move that sees Connected Data further challenge the likes of Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box. Initial partners include Smile’s PDFpen and Readdle’s Scanner Pro, both of which are expected to receive updates adding Transporter’s platform as a sync option. 

Transporter just took another step towards being a viable alternative to Dropbox for mobile users. Now the private cloud has become a “platform.” Don’t worry though – this just means that app makers are now free to add Transporter support to their apps, letting you sync and save your data from your iPad and iPhone. Transporter is a device that works just like Dropbox, only you own and control the actual hardware. Previously the mobile offering was limited to the Transporter app, which let you share anything stored on the drive, but you had to do it via iOS’s cumbersome “Open In” dialogs. Now, though, apps will access your Transporter direct. This will be just like having built-in Dropbox integration, only your files are never kept on another company’s server – it’s all your, and completely private.
