Acer Extends AcerCloud to Top Three Operating Systems, Making It Easy
to Share Files and Media Among Windows, iOS and Android Devices
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- Acer today announced
cross-platform support for AcerCloud, the company's file sharing and
media management solution, free to Acer customers. Consumers can now
share, retrieve and enjoy their multimedia and data files using a
variety of computing devices, regardless of which operating system
they are running -- Windows, Android or iOS.
AcerCloud uses the free space on a PC's hard drive as cloud storage
space. Users simply designate one of their PCs as their "Cloud PC,"
enabling them to use the available hard drive space on their own PC,
giving them security and full control over their storage needs.(1)
And unlike other cloud solutions, consumers won't receive constant
reminders about exceeding capacity with solicitations to pay for more
"With AcerCloud, Acer now supports free file sharing between all of
the key mobile devices, adding tremendous value to Acer customers,"
said Acer President, Jim Wong. "AcerCloud greatly simplifies our
customers' ability to manage all of their digital assets across all
of their devices, regardless of platform."
Remote Access and Wireless Connectivity - Anytime, Anywhere
Users can also use the new "Remote Files" application for direct
access to any of their Windows PCs from any of their other
devices.(2) They can upload and download files on any Android, iOS,
or Windows device, whether at home or on the road, using Wi-Fi or
their cellular network service.
Other enhanced features of AcerCloud include:
AcerCloud Docs - Effortless Portability
A feature especially convenient for professionals, AcerCloud Docs
enables users to push their Microsoft Office documents to any of
their Windows, Android or iOS devices. For example, a document edited

automatically. These files will be synced at AcerCloud and available
for 30 days from the day files were modified. There is no limit to
