Although the concept of relying heavily on cloud-storage may raise questioning eyebrows in the post-Snowden era, the Robin smartphone not only rethinks the entire look of the phone and of the interface, but smartly uses cloud storage to make sure you always have what you want at your fingertips while never running out of space.
Robin intelligently adapts to your storage needs, and automatically optimizes the space on your phone when it sees you need it. By learning the apps you use and the space you need, Robin offloads the stuff you don’t use to the cloud. So you can have everything you want (in the cloud), and just what you need (on your phone).
Robin backs up your apps and photos whenever you’re connected to power and Wi-Fi. (These are the default setting to conserve power and data, but you can change them to fit your needs.) After you’ve been using it for a while and start running out of space, Robin intelligently removes apps and photos you haven’t used in a while - even if you’re offline. Robin knows they’re already backed up safely. If you ever want an offloaded app or photo back, no problem. Just tap on it and we restore the full version right away. It’s hassle free, the way everything should be.
