Online backup provider Carbonite has announced the release of an Apple iPhone app that allows users to browse, view and share backed up files on the move at anytime.

Users can log in to their Carbonite account from any iPhone or iPod touch and once logged in, can access all files backed up to Carbonite, in the same folder structure they appear on the user’s Mac or PC.

Features of the Carbonite app include:

· Browse: Users can browse backed up files directly on an iPhone or iPod touch.
· View: Files including PDFs, images, audio, video, and Office documents can be opened and viewed on the mobile device.
· Share: Users can attach any file to an email with a single tap, allowing access to all files from anywhere, anytime.

The Carbonite app also has an offline mode, allowing users to access cached content when a Wi-Fi or 3G connection is not available.

A year’s subscription to Carbonite, providing unlimited backup space, is available for £34.

A free 15-day trial is available at

Available from the Apple iTunes App Store, Carbonite is free and requires the iPhone 3.0 Software Update or later.
