Official SnapCrowd cloud storage app available on Windows Phone

We previously looked at the official SnapCrowd app heading to Windows Phone, with a planned March release. We're now happy to announce that the app is finally available on the Marketplace and has been since April 10th. The digital media sharing service enables users to upload, view and stream media and even add subusers to the account. Sporting robust security, including SSL / TLS and HTTPS protocol layers, SnapCrowd also keeps data relatively secure. 

The service supports video, music, contacts, photos, contacts and documents. As mentioned above, streaming is a feature that can be used for digital media, including videos. An interesting part of the service itself is the subuser functionality, allowing other users to connect and stream media and files under one account with a single paid plan.

There are three plans that are fairly affordable compared to competitors, a free option boasts 10GB of storage (for a limited time) with one subuser, then the price goes up to $59 for 50GB of storage and finally $99 for 100GB of storage with increased subusers.

Check out the quick video below for more information.

You can download SnapCrowd from the Marketplace for free, and sign up for the available plans on the website (

  • well, if MSFT kill off Zune then we got a real winner with snapcrowd, total rip on the design, bit its pretty cool. had the Silverlight sight app for a while.
  • Very nice UI, and very well designed... Was able to test out thru beta, and both the WP7 app, and the Desktop App have both my wife and me hooked... Little slow on uploading, but that could be on my end... Wish I could set my default streaming quality tho... Beside that point, I love what they have done!!! :)
  • Nice but it takes a hell of a long time to upload a photo.  I'm seeing this on Wifi too.
  • Sorry for the trouble. But since SnapCrowd uploads the original file the upload speed is limited to your connection speed. Try and do the bulk of your uploading from the web client at, there you can queu up 1000+ and let it run all night long. We do have a syncing client coming this summer.
  • The user interface is good. I love the way it looks . I think it is really efficient - Dan Sciscente
