(The Hosting News) – The mobile internet is booming and millions of Britons are now regularly accessing the Web through mobile devices and Smartphones. 1&1 Internet Ltd., www.1and1.co.uk, a global leader amongst Web hosts, has developed an application that is especially beneficial for businesses using such mobile technology. The new 1&1 Online Storage app provides access to important documents without using a computer and can be achieved via a mobile internet connection.
Business owners on-the-go can use this app to edit and manage documents efficiently while traveling or between appointments. All that is required is a 1&1 Online Office account which is included for free in most 1&1 hosting packages. The app itself is available for free download to iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch devices and mobile phones with the Android operating system.
“With the increased demand for mobile Web connections, 1&1 has been working hard to provide our customers with the tools necessary to manage their business from any type of internet connection,” said Oliver Mauss, CEO of 1&1 Internet Ltd. “Mobile applications have become a dominant force in communication and information management and we welcome the challenge to continue providing customers with tools that support their efforts to effectively conduct business on the go.”
The 1&1 Online Storage app is simple to download. Once the app is downloaded from either the “AppStore” or “Android Market”, users can enter the e-mail address and password that is associated with the desired 1&1 account. This login will provide them with access to their Online Storage from virtually any location. Various document formats (DOC, XLS, PDF, PPT, JPG, etc.) can be viewed, edited, filed, and saved directly from a mobile device. Also, each account is automatically given 2GB of free space. If additional space is needed, users can increase their storage capacity for an additional cost.
All data is stored on 1&1’s servers located in the company’s state-of-the-art, high-performance data centre in Karlsruhe, Germany. Storing working documents in Online Storage ensures that only the most recent file versions are available and eliminates the chance for outdated information to be referenced.
