AOS Content Cloud – FAQ
How come the app is free? Are there any hidden charges?
It’s true. The app is free and so is the cloud service. Every user account is limited to 5Gb.
We’d love to charge for downloading the app. The truth is, we’d have to spend more time and money in development just to do that. The other reason is that most of the current users of AOS Content Cloud are actually regular users of our core digital marketing services. We’re working with the principle that if you’re busy creating a lot of content on the go… you’re probably going to want a reliable partner to sort, rate and edit that content into an engaging brand story. Our remote editors and digital marketing team is always just a click away.
In the future we will be switching to a subscription model (with costs similar to Dropbox) for the app to cover those users who are using the app and not the services but we’ll most likely refund that fee to regular design/editing customers. Make sense?
What are the long term development plans for this service?
Currently we provide a great way to:
- Keep work content separate from your personal stuff
- Save space on your device
- Put a digital model release form at your fingertips
- Retrieve content via a browser for the next step
But there’s a few things we know we can improve and certainly some cool features that we intend to add. Here are some of them:
- Instant account setup within the app (currently you have to sign up on our website and wait a couple of hours while we set you up manually)
- Better browsing of your content from right within the app
- More camera features including slow motion and timelapse
If there are any features that you’d like to see in the app, please let us know and we’ll do our best to deliver it in a future update.
I downloaded the app, signed up and started shooting… now what?
We built AOS Content Cloud for our regular clients with whom we’re in constant contact. If you’re new to the service, we won’t yet know much about you, or your brand, or your needs. Do you want us to watermark your stills with your company logo and prep them for social media? Do you want us to post them to your social accounts as drafts, ready for your approval? Should we make them into a slideshow with royalty free music and your logo at the end? Or a turn your video clips into a 30sec spot with subtitles?
Now you might be getting a better picture of where our relationship could be headed. Many users simply login to the cloud and download the content they want and set out to do all of the above themselves which is fine too.
Would you offer an enterprise version of the app for companies who want to rebrand the service?
Absolutely. And we offer varying degrees of support. For agencies who can handle the video editing, we set up the cloud server for them in-house and leave them to it. And for agencies who just want to share the app with their clients but aren’t ready to scale up to handle video editing, we provide a virtual service that has our team provide all editing and packaging in the background.
