SlideShare, the great service that helps you publish your presentations is now available on your Jolidrive. Enjoy an easy access to all your favorite presentations and a convenient and quick way to discover new ones.
To start exploring Slideshare content, you don’t even need an account. We made it easy to discover all the featured and popular presentations. Take a look at what’s trending, you might like what you find!
Search New Presentations
But what also makes this integration awesome is search. SlideShare has an amazing catalog of content. Looking for a review? A how-to or tutorial? Some data about a specific market? With search, you will find what you need in seconds.
Favorite Interesting Presentations
This feature is only accessible for people with a SlideShare account. It only takes a few seconds to create one. Once you find a presentation that you like, you can favorite and save it for later. It will automatically be added to your favorite collection, making all the content you need just one click away.
“I was looking for information about Internet on mobile, so I went to my Jolidrive and searched Mary Meeker. I instantly got a lot of results, including the 2013 edition of the annual Internet trends report. I clicked on its author and got all the previous presentations!”
Here at Jolicloud, we love Firefox that’s why we attended the Firefox OS Paris Hackathon.
It was the opportunity to say hello to the Mozilla team in their new space (the place is really awesome) and to start porting Jolidrive to Firefox OS!
And because a good news never comes alone, you can already find Jolidrive in the Firefox Marketplace!

Under the hood
However, we discovered some space for optimizations on Firefox for mobile.
What we did during this hackathon:
- Fix display bugs.
- Actions on items were inactive, you can now tap to like and share the content.
- With WebActivities, one of the powerful capabilities of Firefox OS, the user can now choose from all installed applications the one to share his content.
Note a lot of those fixes benefit to Firefox for Android too.

We are excited to announce today from the Google I/O conference that you can use the new Google Sign in to create your Jolidrive account. This new sign in option makes it easy to add all your favorite Google services to your Jolidrive at once: Google+, Google Drive, YouTube and Picasa. The new sign in option also supports Google Apps.
The new Google Sign in on Jolidrive
Select which Google services you want to add to your Jolidrive
With the new Google Sign in, we designed a beautiful and simple way to select the services you would like to associate during the registration (i.e. before the “OAuth dance” if you’re a developer). Click on Sign in with Google and we will automatically associate the Google services you selected to your Jolidrive account in one step.

Jolidrive now with Google Apps support
The great news is the Google Sign in works seamlessly with Google Apps, which is great for schools and enterprises. To access your Google Apps from the Jolidrive, don’t forget to make sure that Google+ is enabled for your organization. Please ask your administrator if that’s not already the case.
To celebrate Google Sign in, we’ve introduced an official Jolicloud community to Google+. You can access and join it starting today. Feel free to share photos, give suggestions, request features and services, or simply talk to other members of the Jolicloud family. We’ll be answering questions from the official Jolicloud account, and team members will often stop by to chat with you and the rest of the community.
Jolicloud @ Google I/O
We are also happy to announce that Jolicloud has a booth at Google I/O this week in the Google+ sandbox. Come say hello if you’re attending. We’d love to meet you!
See you in the sandbox!
