[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Eightythree Technology today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Phone Drive 6.0, a critical update to their innovative, multi-functional file management app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Phone Drive is a personal and secure wireless drive, allowing users to save, manage, edit and view files on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Connecting via Wi-Fi to either Mac or PC desktops allows files to be easily transferred via Finder or Windows Explorer and then viewed or edited directly on the device using a variety of included in-app utilities. Now users can links directly with Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive accounts for easy-to-use cloud management.
"Our simple and easy-to-use cloud management system is exclusive to Phone Drive. It's an innovative feature that sets us apart from all of the other personal utility apps on the market," said Felix Yew, Founder at Eightythree Technology. "We have seen such enormous success with this app in various countries and we are looking forward to the future as we continue to evolve our product to suit the ever-changing needs of our consumers."
Unlike the current storage facility offered by iOS, which only stores particular filetypes within individual apps, Phone Drive allows users to use their device as a virtual wireless hard drive and store almost every popular file format - from music and photographs to spreadsheets and presentations.
Built-in file viewers allow quick retrieval and editing without leaving the app, including; audio player, image viewer, voice recorder, text editor and document viewer supporting PDFs, MS Office, iWork, Text and HTML documents. In addition, a full file manager allows organisation on-the-go as well as supporting zip and archiving functionality.
Full list of supported formats:
* Audio (WAV, MP3, M4A, CAF, AIF, AIFF, AAC)
* Images (JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIF, TIFF, ICO)
* Movies (MP4, MOV, MPV, M4V)

* Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint)

When away from the desk files can be transferred directly to-and-from other mobile devices using bluetooth, whilst an in-built personal Wi-Fi hotpot allows wireless connection to any computer, even on the road. Security can be enabled using a passcode lock, whilst file transfers between mobile device and computer are also password protected.
"Phone Drive offers iOS users a wireless drive that is incredibly easy-to-use for almost infinite purposes - storing photographs, music, documents even websites." commented Felix Yew of Eightythree Technology. "Normally any unused iPhone or iPad storage space cannot be accessed directly by consumers. With Phone Drive we have designed a fully open system where users can connect to their device as a wireless drive and access files on-the-go without leaving the app as well as linking most popular cloud service Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or iCloud."
