Transporter is a super smart “private cloud” service that we’ve talked about before, however over at Macworld 2014 we got to take a closer look at the impressive product.
As a reminder, Transporter comes in two different editions: there’s the original Transporter, and “Transporter Sync.” The former product is a 500 GB Internet-connected hard drive that lets users add files and access them from the cloud. There’s a dedicated iOS app, and the folks behind Transporter – Connected Data – recently announced a nifty Dropbox-inspired “Camera Upload” feature for the product, too.
Transporter Sync, on the other hand, is a $99 hockey puck-sized device that does the same job as the original Transporter, but without featuring an integrated drive. Instead, users can plug their own external HDD into Transporter Sync in order to achieve a setup that's identical to the original product.
Our own Dom Esposito indeed met up with Connected Data at Macworld, and he sent us the below video:

It’s an interesting product that’s set to further improve in the coming months since Connected Data has unveiled a brand new Transporter Developer Program for the product. This allows iOS and OS X developers to integrate their apps with Transporter, and some of Connected Data’s initial partners include Readdle’s Scanner Pro and Smile’s PDFpen.
If you’re a big Dropbox user looking to escape the service’s monthly fee, Transporter could be the perfect solution. For more information including the option of purchasing the product, head over to Connected Data’s website.
