"With the addition of their iPhone app, SpiderOak is now truly at the center of my digital universe." - Dave W. "Now every document, song, or photo is just a few taps away..." - Emelia Z.

Cloud-based backup/sync service SpiderOak (https://spideroak.com) today announced the release of its first mobile application for the iPhone. The program allows users to access any of the files uploaded to SpiderOak across any device, open personal and guest ShareRooms, and email any individual file (via link) using the iPhone mail client. The SpiderOak iPhone application was designed to work in conjunction with the current SpiderOak services.

“In designing the SpiderOak iPhone application, we wanted to provide an easy way for our users to access any of the data they have backed up and stored right from their phone,” said SpiderOak CEO Ethan Oberman. “Further, we are extremely excited about our newest feature - the ability to quickly email any stored file. Our users have been asking for this functionality and we were happy to integrate it seamlessly into the iPhone app. Now sending a business plan or a PDF or a picture is as easy as pressing a button.”

According to the company’s published relayed development timeline, additional mobile platforms will soon be added including the Blackberry, Android, and WindowsMobile7.

SpiderOak is the only online storage provider that enables users to backup, sync, share, access, and store files from any combination of Windows, Mac and Linux computers as well as external storage media in a single account. All data is stored in a central storage repository and is accessible from any device in the user’s SpiderOak network.

Other features unique to SpiderOak include perpetual file and version storage even for older and deleted files, the ability to aggregate multiple devices in one account to take advantage of bulk storage rates, and an industry-first no-password-storage security policy that prevents even SpiderOak employees from viewing user information including file and folder names. Multiple redundancy strategies and an automated stress testing and verification system protect customers against data loss. SpiderOak offers 2 GBs of lifetime free storage and additional storage for a monthly or yearly fee.
