Strato has launched a Windows Phone 7 app allowing users to connect to its cloud-based HiDrive service with a smartphone while on the move.
The Windows app allows users to access files from a HiDrive repository, or take photos with a Windows smartphone and upload them straight to the cloud.
Documents can be downloaded from HiDrive to the smartphone, but it is not possible to upload files using Microsoft's Mobile Office Suite at this time.
Strato has also added functionality to the Android app to allow the streaming of music and video formats directly to a smartphone.
A Strato spokesperson told V3 that the supported formats vary depending on the smartphone, but that "all commonly used video and film formats are supported".
Android users can also take pictures and upload them directly to HiDrive. The latest version of the app can be moved directly to a SD card via 'Move 2 SD' to free up internal storage space.
The HiDrive App for Windows Phone 7 is available free from the Windows Marketplace and the Android Market.
