Newly Arrived – SpiderOak iPhone App
We are very proud and excited to announce the launch of our SpiderOak iPhone
application -representing our introduction into the mobile platform. You can
find SpiderOak now in the iTunes App Store!
Our initial goals for this product were to accomplish the following:
- Provide seamless access to all of the data you have backed up across your
SpiderOak Network – viewing documents, pdfs, pictures, videos, music,
historical versions, etc…
- Allow you to easily open your ShareRooms and those of your friends, family,
colleagues, or clients
- Create a way for you to email ANY file across your SpiderOak Network
through the iPhone email utility
Of course in my excitement to show off the new app, one of my friends
wondered why she should download it if she didn’t have a SpiderOak account.
Other than the obvious response that she should get one immediately (and my
promise of course that I would give her a little extra space), the app can
still be used to open up the ShareRooms of current SpiderOak users. For
example, after downloading the SpiderOak iPhone app on her phone, I was able to
give her one of my ShareRoom credentials (ShareID & RoomKey) et voilà! –
she was looking at several photos of my new cute little niece.
As we do with all of our projects, we encourage your ideas and feedback as
this drives our development effort and makes SpiderOak better for everyone.
Please don’t hesitate to send your comments to
Lastly, we do have plans in the not-so-distant future to release a mobile
version for the Android and the Blackberry platforms with the Windows platform
soon to follow. In addition, we have an aggressive roadmap of new features to
add to the iPhone platform in upcoming versions 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3. Please
