Upthere came out of stealth in July with the unveiling of a new personal storage service and application. The Redwood City, Calif.-based startup also said it received a huge round of funding that brought it $77 million, with Western Digital as one of its two lead investors.
The Upthere Home app lets Android, iOS and Windows users manage photos, videos, documents, and other files in the cloud. Users can search for specific items by typing a few characters or tapping on groups. Objects stored in Upthere are private by default, but users can set up Loops, which are groups of files that can be shared, added to, or commented on by others. Monthly pricing starts at $4.99 for 200 GBs of storage.
