Lenovo Premieres New Suite of Premium Apps for Smartphones and Tablets

Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) (ADR: LNVGY) today at the 2014 Mobile World Congress announced a new suite of DOit apps designed to help people simplify their digital lives, allowing them to easily share, sync, protect and manage precious information on their smartphones and tablets. Comprised of five essential apps that address the key concerns of mobile users, the DOit app series includes:

  • SHAREit – shares information instantly between multiple devices without network charges
  • SECUREit – speeds up devices and secures them from viruses and malware
  • SYNCit – backs up and restores contacts, SMS messages and call logs
  • SNAPit Camera – provides a powerful camera app with multiple shooting modes
  • SEEit Gallery – allows one-touch creative editing and efficient photo management

Instantly Share Memories and More with SHAREit

SHAREit is the only mobile file transfer app users need: SHAREit lets people instantly share1 pictures, videos, music files, documents, contacts and even apps on their device with other devices or groups of devices. This useful app eliminates the need for messy and time-consuming cables because it transfers information wirelessly between devices. What’s more, sharing files occurs even without Bluetooth, a phone network or active Wi-Fi network nearby. Users simply connect directly using their device’s WiFi radio, which avoids any network charges. SHAREit not only works across Lenovo smartphones and tablets, but also with iOS devices and even Windows PCs1.

Users can instantly share a party video, music album or photo library with up to five friends at once. And it can share huge files or videos in seconds at up to 40x faster than Bluetooth. Devices with SHAREit installed can automatically find each other when in range, and users can even share the app itself wirelessly to start rapid sharing immediately.

Optimize and Protect Mobile Data with SECUREit

As more people carry confidential information on their tablets and smartphones, securing that data has never been more important. Lenovo SECUREit contains a variety of data-protection tools to prevent threats and to keep devices running at optimum performance levels.

SECUREit protects against viruses, spam and malware that scans for threats with a single touch. In case of loss or theft, anti-theft protection locks down the device in case someone tries to change the SIM card, which makes the device unusable without a password. SECUREit also contains a privacy guard to protect against unwarranted access to users’ private information. Additionally, it blocks spam text messages and calls, tracks data usage and can even encrypt private calls and contacts.

SECUREit not only protects a user’s device, but also makes it run faster. By closing redundant background apps and wiping the cache clean, it clears the device’s memory to focus on important tasks.

SYNCit A Continuous Personal Backup Assistant

With ever-growing lists of contacts, setting up a new device can be a challenge. SYNCit offers instant backup of contacts, SMS message and call logs in the cloud, which can be restored to any Android smartphone or tablet in seconds with a single touch. SYNCit serves as a user’s personal backup assistant.

Camera Apps Make Taking and Managing Photos a Snap

Created especially with smartphones in mind, the SNAPit Camera and SEEit Gallery apps fuse user-centric hardware and software for an intuitive photo experience. SNAPit Camera gives users unprecedented flexibility for shooting in specific modes (such as panorama or burst mode) for wide-angle shots, low-light situations and more. It also offers special filters and effects. Users can then edit photos right inside the app: They can remove unwanted objects and even create fun, animated GIF files.

SEEit Gallery complements SNAPit Camera with its unique gallery interface for impressive photo viewing. The app uses facial recognition to automatically categorize photos into folders. Additionally, it includes several one-touch filters and effects, including skin tone enhancements.
