Wuala Online Storage Releases Fully-Encrypted iPhone App

Wuala, the secure online storage, announced today the launch of its Wuala iPhone and iPod touch application, which allows users to access their personal files on-the-go and share them with friends and colleagues. 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 – ensuring user data is always secure.

Wuala for iPhone offers the 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. Selected files can also be saved for offline access.

The new app for iPhone and iPod touch brings mobility to Wuala’s diverse portfolio of cloud storage features. With automatic backup, sync and file encryption, Wuala is bound to fit all online storage needs. Wuala for iPhone and iPod touch is now available at no cost from the Apple App store.
