Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — QuikIO, a new mobile media content delivery application and service, today announced entering QuikIO 2.0 with the addition of QuikBeam. QuikIO users can now send full-resolution photo, videos, and files between iPhones at super high speed. QuikBeam works over Wi-Fi and 3G/4G and achieves peak transferring speed at 30-35M bits/sec when connecting two iPhones over mobile hotspot. Unlike other solutions, there is no limit on file size and file count.
Since launch, QuikIO has become a fast growing application with continuously increasing number of downloads around the world. The popularity among its early adopters helped it to top #1 chart in several countries on Apple AppStore. QuikIO is changing how consumers access their personal contents by empowering them the ability to instant stream, transfer, or share their media collections on their computers through network connections.
"Solutions for file transfer between iPhones traditionally require uploading files to the cloud, thus significantly limit the transferring speed. QuikBeam differentiates itself by utilizing QuikIO’s network intelligence to find the best route for connecting the two iPhones” said Michael Chen, QuikIO CEO and co-founder. “With QuikIO's LAN sync technology, QuikBeam eliminates unnecessary cloud upload and achieves up to 10-20 times speed improvements when connecting two iPhones over home/office Wi-Fi or mobile hotspot. In seconds, users can transfer a minute of HD video or tens of full resolution photos – the performance easily rivals the Samsung S Beam on Android phones. QuikBeam is easy to use – just install the QuikIO app and sign in. Unlike Android Beam, there is no special hardware and network configuration required.”
