Providing data Access, Ability to View Shares, Store Files Locally, Email Any File

CHICAGO, IL, USA, October 5, 2010 — Cloud-based backup/sync service SpiderOak ( today announced the release of its mobile application for the Android Operating System. The program allows users to access any of the files uploaded to SpiderOak across any device, open personal and guest ShareRooms, store popular files locally for viewing anytime, and sharing data (via link) using the phone’s mail client. The SpiderOak Android application was designed to work in conjunction with the current SpiderOak services.

“In launching the SpiderOak Android application, we wanted to provide an easy way for our users to access any of the data they have backed up, stored, and shared 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 Android application.
