LaCie Reveals Wuala Cloud Storage App For iOS

As if it weren't clear enough, cloud storage is a blossoming segment. As the Internet finds more and more homes (and mobile devices), storing things on a remote server is becoming a more viable option. LaCie has recently gotten in on the action, with the company's Wuala Online Storage platform. This week, that platform is expanding out to a logical place: the iPhone and iPod touch. The company's new iOS app allows users to access files that are stored in faraway servers, so long as there's an Internet connection. Aimed at users who demand secure mobile applications, the Wuala iPhone app encrypts and decrypts files directly on the phone. Unlike other online storage services, Wuala uses client-side encryption. This means Wuala cannot access user files because the password never leaves the device.


It's a pretty elegant app, and it offers ability to browse and view files directly. Files can be opened with selected applications, making it easy to flip through a presentation or listen to music while on the move, and selected files can also be saved for offline access. There's also support for auto-backup, sync and file encryption, and it's available now for no cost from the App Store.

Thats neat, its got a nice clean interface and looks easy to use but then again so do almost all apps on the IOS platform.

I think Dropbox is still one of the biggest most succesful players in the game for cloud storage, and the multiplatform factor gives them a huge advantage so i wonder what there is about Wuala's Online storage that would make me want to pick them over Dropbox
