New Desktop client update

It has been a week since the launch of our new Desktop client and today we are releasing the first batch of updates (and fixes).

  • Those who did not have the Default sync folder before can make one. There is a button for it now.
  • The window is no longer freakishly small on Linux computers with HiDPI displays (thank you, Nicola).
  • Folders will no longer appear in the Recently synced list.
  • When dropping files with the same name into the Default sync folder, they will get auto-renamed not overwritten (similar to the Web app).
  • Our App is finally properly signed for macOS, no more "unverified developer" message when installing.
  • Improved handling of various network changes when determining online/offline status.
  • System tray pop-up menu on Windows should now work as well as on other platforms.
  • Due to popular demand, the application window will now open every time you start it, not only on the first run.

Introducing new Desktop client

Koofr Desktop clients are among our core functionality, allowing users to synchronise their important files to safe locations.

And we are proud to announce a completely redesigned and reworked application, which brings new functionality and simpler user experience.

Everyone with the application already installed will get it through our automatic updater, those who have not installed it yet, can download the right one for your OS from the website.

Important notice to existing sync users:

The new client brings Default sync folder functionality, which was not available in the past. After your client upgrades, this functionality will not be automatically added if you have existing sync configuration. Which is why Koofr folder options will have no effect. To get this new functionality, you will have to delete the desktop client (make sure to delete the configuration as well) and reinstall it. But you will have to add all the synchronisations again.

Koofr paid plans now cheaper!

We made some changes in our paid plans and pricing, making it even more affordable than before.

The biggest news is the lower price for the 1TB plan, which you can now get for 10€ per month.

We are introducing the new 250GB plan for 4€/month, replacing the old 200GB plan which used to cost 5€/month. More space for less money! All users with an existing subscription to the 200GB plan have been automatically upgraded to the 250GB plan.

Lastly, the 100GB plan is now available for 2€/month, 1€/month less than before.

Receive files on Koofr via special email address

This new feature allows you to save files that were sent in an email as attachments directly into your chosen Koofr folder. It's a part of an existing feature Receive files.

Once you click on the Share button on the chosen folder, click Receive files. At the bottom of the pop-up screen, you will find a field Files can also be received via email address. This unique email address that Koofr created, now functions as another gateway to saving the files in the chosen folder.

When someone sends you an email with attachments to this email address, the attachments will be automatically saved in Koofr, along with the email itself.

Limitations? Each of your emails can be up to 100 MB (including all attachments) and the feature only works in Koofr, not in your connected drives (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Amazon Drive).

We're sure you can already imagine possible scenarios where this could come in handy, but we'll cover a few of them in an upcoming blog post.

Koofr app 3.3.2 for Android released

We’ve made some more improvements to the Koofr app for Android this week and released the 3.3.2 version.

The biggest one is a completely revamped gallery that works far better on low-memory devices. You can also expect better behavior under memory pressure in general. We’ve lowered the importance of app notifications, so they won't bother you with sound anymore.

Along with that, we’ve added some small UI tweaks and improvements to benefit your general user experience.

And let’s wrap up with a shout out to Dave Morrissey for providing the base for our gallery revamp with his wonderful image view component. Thanks!

Koofr app 3.3.0 for Android released

We are happy to announce that we've released a new version of Koofr mobile app for Android. It supports one of the most long-awaited features - sharing of single files inside Koofr.

The updated version makes use of Android Oreo's specific features, most notably resulting in improved battery life, better handling of media uploads, and a shiny new adaptive launcher icon. Browsing in shared folders is improved and users with low-memory devices will appreciate improved memory management.

Along with those, we polished the general user experience, added a new icon set, and, like every time, fixed a few bugs such as search in folders and synchronisation of offline files.

Update indicator for connected accounts

Koofr now tells you when the file list from your connected drives is updating.

Up until now, it was not clear whether all the files you see in Koofr are the same as if viewed directly in a connected storage drive (e.g. on Dropbox).

A little red exclamation point in the top right corner in the Koofr app appears when the files in a chosen connected drive are updating.

Open files in Google Drive

Files and folders from your connected Google DRive account can be now opened in Google Drive directly from Koofr app.

If you view a file in the Koofr integrated viewer, you can open it in Google Drive by clicking the Open in Google Drive button on the top right side.

You can also easily open the file in Google Drive by simply right-clicking the file or folder in Koofr and choosing the Open in Google Drive option.

No published changelogs yet.

Surely Koofr will start publishing changelogs very soon.
