Dropbox Unveils Dropbox Anywhere with Sprite Backup

May 6th, 2010 - Dropbox, the leading provider of Internet file synchronization, sharing and security services, today announced the release of Dropbox Anywhere - a new set of mobile apps and APIs. Users can now have simple and seamless access to their files from virtually any device or mobile app.

More people than ever face the challenge of making their documents, photos and other files available and in sync across the ever-increasing group of devices they use everyday. This challenge has increased as these devices – and the apps they enable – grow more sophisticated. Providing support for all major mobile platforms, Dropbox Anywhere solves this problem by making documents and media ubiquitously available across the multiple computers and devices a given user accesses in the course of a day. And with the Dropbox mobile API, these benefits can be extended to the new generation of mobile apps, making them easier to use and more valuable.

"With the innovation and growth in mobile computing, the industry is shifting from a PC and desktop centric model to one where our daily computing experience spans multiple devices and locations," said Drew Houston, CEO and founder of Dropbox.

"By providing seamless and ubiquitous access to users' files and media in the most popular phones and tablets, Dropbox Anywhere helps deliver on the promise of the new mobile model, and makes using these devices more productive and fun."

“It is now obvious that Smartphones are taking over as the main media and data centric device of choice for consumers. The protection of a users valuable content, settings and device experience is increasingly of concern. By partnering with Dropbox, and integrating their mobile API, Sprite Backup can insure users retain their content in the case of theft/device destruction or even move content seamlessly from one device to another as consumers migrate to the latest gadget." - Julian Rayner, CEO

“We are happy to be part of Dropbox’s mobile api launch, and are excited to offer their innovative solutions to our customers."
