TransMedia Prepares to Launch 'Glide Next'

Glide Next offers Internet-based file storage in conjunction with local file synchronization and a variety of browser-based content creation, productivity, and media-sharing applications that support identity-based rights management.

TransMedia on Thursday plans to release Glide Next, the 2.0 version of its consumer media-sharing and content creation platform for PCs and mobile devices.

Glide Next offers Internet-based file storage in conjunction with local file synchronization and a variety of browser-based content creation, productivity, and media-sharing applications that support identity-based rights management.

Glide Next includes the Glide Write word processor and an online photo editing and printing program, as well as e-mail, calendar, blogging, and various media-sharing applications. The software runs on Windows and Mac computers, as well as mobile phones. The ability to access and sync one's files from any device represents one of Glide's strongest selling points.

TransMedia is working with Intel to make Glide Next available on Intel ultra-mobile PCs.

The new version of Glide features a redesigned interface that should feel more familiar to users of earlier versions of the software. To mark the release, TransMedia is offering free accounts to the first 10,000 families that sign up for the new version.

TransMedia says it plans to release online spreadsheet and presentation applications early next year.
