Update: Jolicloud 1.0 is here!
Imagine an operating system centered around interacting with your friends. Imagine never having to worry about updates and software installs. Imagine that all your machines are automatically synchronized with one another. Imagine having your Internet ecosystem natively integrated to your machine, with all the coolest apps at your fingertips.
This dream is what kept us busy for just over a year, and now, we’re happy to announce the launch of Jolicloud 1.0.
Here are some of the cool new features that you can look forward to:
A Simpler, Customizable Launcher Entirely Built in HTML5
- Installing an app takes only one click, and removing it is just as easy.
- Jolicloud comes with some of the best apps already pre-installed, including Gmail, Skype, Twitter, Firefox, and more.
- It’s up to you to organize your apps the way you want – your launcher is customizable.
- We take care of any app updates so that updating is easy, and that you always have the latest version of everything.
An Exhaustive App Center
- Jolicloud has selected 700+ of the best free apps to install and share with your friends.
- You don’t have to keep up with Internet trends to discover the coolest new apps – our curated, Featured Apps directory is updated weekly with the best and the latest.
- Jolicloud makes it easy for you to share what apps you like with your friends and vice versa, so it’s always a dynamic and social app environment.
A Social Stream
- Through our new Stream feature, you can feel the pulse of the Jolicloud community and discover the apps that your friends recommend.
- You’re not only kept up to date with what apps other Joliclouders like, but you can also see whatever updates your favorite apps release.
- Any notifications from Jolicloud and other third-party apps are all centralized here.
A Universal File System
- Because everything is in one place, it’s easy to manage your files and data, whether they’re on your machine or in the Cloud.
- Jolicloud facilitates access to popular online storage services like box.net, Dropbox, and drop.io, with new services being added frequently.
Experience the Anywhere OS
- You can install Jolicloud on as many devices as you’d like, and they will always be automatically synchronized. Any app you download, delete, or move around will be the same on all your other machines with no extra work on your part.
- You can even manage your interface from the Cloud – if you don’t have your computer with you, log in on any HTML5 browser like Chrome to add, remove, or organize apps.
- Moving from machine to machine has never been so easy.
So when is it available?
We will progressively roll out Jolicloud 1.0 to all users starting next week, but we’ll give priority to our founding members who have been here since the first Alpha release. You’ll be notified in your Update page when you have been selected to upgrade. Just follow the instructions and restart – making sure that you are connected to the Internet to activate your new Jolicloud.
On behalf of the Joliteam, I wish to thank you for your ongoing support. Join us in making our vision to change the computing industry for the better a reality.
