Lenovo Premieres New Suite of Premium Apps for Smartphones and Tablets
BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
(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
SEEit Gallery - allows one-touch creative editing and efficient photo
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 (News - Alert) 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 protecs 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 (News - Alert) 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
"We've created a premium mobile experience by marrying our elegant and
powerful smartphones and tablets with an unparalleled software app
experience that makes our devices incredibly simple to use and
compatible with virtually any other device a user wants to share and
sync with," said Liu Jun, executive vice president, Mobile Business
Group, Lenovo. "The DOit series of apps zeros in on the ways people use
their devices, making their experience safer, more efficient and just
SHAREit comes preloaded on all new Lenovo Android tablets and
smartphones and is also available for download on the Google Play store
free of charge. It will also be available for download on the Apple App
Store for iPhone (News - Alert)/iPad, as well as for Windows
PCs starting in February.
SYNCit and SECUREit come preloaded on all new Lenovo Android smartphones
and selected tablets. They are also available for free on Google (News - Alert) Play.
SYNCit is available for all brands of smartphones and tablets. SECUREit
is available for Lenovo smartphones and selected tablets, as well as for

SNAPit Camera and SEEit Gallery are only available preloaded on selected
