First Cloud Storage Virtualization App for the iPhone
SMEStorage has announce that its iSMEStorage iPhone application is live in the Apple App store. The application is the first iPhone application to let users access and manage over 10 storage clouds from their iPhone in one Cloud file view. Clouds from which files can be viewed and managed include Amazon S3, RackSpace CloudFiles, Box, Apple Mobile Me, Microsoft SkyDrive, Microsoft Live Mesh, Gmail-as-a-cloud, Email-as-a-Cloud, FTP-as-a-Cloud, Google Docs, and WebDav enabled clouds.
CEO Ian Osborne states, "We are very happy to add the iPhone to the list of clients that users can use to get access to their files from our platform. This application provides access to an amazing array of storage clouds right from the palm of your hand, and provides sophisticated file sharing, file security, viewing and sync-to-device features."
"There are number of firsts for this application. It is the first to virtualize storage clouds and make them available from one Cloud File System, and it is the first App of any kind in the App Store that enables access to Microsoft SkyDrive files."
"Cloud users who have envied the simplicity of direct file sync to their iPhone from other storage platforms, but who did not want to move storage providers can now use SMEStorage and our iPhone application and have the same feature."
"If users are at all like me they will have files in Google Docs, company files in something like Amazon S3, personal Files stored on MIcrosoft SkyDrive, and files stored as email attachments on GMail, as well as other interesting file information in platforms such as Evernote. I use my own service as I find the ability to access all this information in one location and move files easily invaluable. Couple this with easy ways to secure files, file share and sync, and you have on the road nirvana !"
Osborne finished by saying "The iPhone is the first mobile client we have supported and we intend to roll out support for Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile over the coming year"
