Sometimes we accidentally close our work programs. Cupcloud solves your problem by resuming the services. Cupcloud works with Tabs, Folders, Documents in Windows and Mac platforms. CupCloud is in public beta right now but works perfectly.

It is still in beta testing, more programs will be added soon. It is a complete free service, works with Windows and Mac like a charm.

Restore Your Work Session Across Computers Using Cupcloud
PCs tend to be very reliable, but sometimes problems can occur at the most inconvenient times. Your computer might reboot for updates forcefully while you work. This can be quite an inconvenience and a problem. The good news is that there is a solution to keep your tabs, documents, files and folders saved without issue.
Cloud Computing and How it helps
What’s the solution? Cloud computing. The technology behind cloud computing has changed from its time of inception and one company has taken advantage of this. Cup cloud uses the cloud for more than simply storage, but it also uses it to keep your work saved and easy to restore when needed. A simple way to explain how this program works is that it saves your sessions (they call them “cups”) in the cloud.
When needed you simply “uncup” the session and that’s it you have restored your work session. Don’t worry about the words, it sounds complicated, but it really isn’t. The benefit of using Cupcloud is that you can even share the work sessions (cups) with your friends and family.
How to Use Cupcloud
Here’s how you can enjoy the program:
- Visit the site and download the application: It’s important to know that Cupcloud is in its beta version, so it might have some bugs. To get started, visit the site and sign up for a free account. Once there, download and install the program. If you’re a user of Google chrome, then be sure to download the extension as well.
- Login to the program: Once the Cupcloud is done downloading, you won’t have to do much. You might be prompted with whether you’d like the program to start when windows start (which obviously would be what you want). Next, you’re going to be prompted to enter your credentials (use the same email and password you used when signing up for the free account). Click the submit button and get started.
- Cup and Uncup your sessions: The program doesn’t offer many features, but it can restore your work sessions whenever needed. It’s simple enough that anyone can easily use it. If you want to save your work sessions simply click the “cup” button at the top. You’ll see your content on the right side. This content will include your URL, files, folders and documents. If you’d like to restore your work session, simply click on the “uncup” button and that’s it. If you’d like to “uncup” on another computer, then simply run Cupcloud on another PC, sign it and “uncup”.
When it comes to restoring work, and keeping it safe, this app does it best. Sadly, it doesn’t have offer a lot of integration with other apps as it’s still in the beta phase. For now, it only supports web browsers (chrome, Internet explorer and Safari), Microsoft word, excel and PowerPoint, Microsoft Explorer and Adobe Acrobat. Good news is, the developers are working hard to ensure more programs are added to the list. Cup cloud still has some room for improvement, but it currently sits as one of the utility programs that one should have.
