iBackup - now backing up the iPhone as well

IBackup, a provider of backup services, provides you the flexibility of accessing data stored on your IBackup account with handheld devices such as iPhone, Blackberry, PocketPC and Treo, while on the move. I wonder when they will be adding thses services for the likes of the Nokia and the Sony Ericsson phones as well. As of now, only Nokia owned Vertu has these features - but that comes with a premium!

IBackup is faster than other services, according to a test conducted by Computer Power User. Users can schedule incremental, differential and full backups. Data is encrypted to and from your computer, as well as once it is loaded on the IBackup servers. Separate versions of IBackup work with Windows and Mac systems. IBackup allows designated parties to view your files. To access the data, login to your IBackup account by clicking the link Online Backup

Once you are logged in, you can view files/folders, browse through the contents and save them to a local device. You can even share this data with your associates, using any of the devices mentioned above. Some of the cool features that are available are:
  • Easy navigation between folders
  • Provision to share your files/folders with associates
  • Provision for your associates to view the shared files/folders on their iPhone/handheld devices.
All in all, they seem to be a real good option if there's confidential data on your phone that you don't want to loose incase you fall prey to theft. Loosing your gadget is one thing, but confidential data lying in the hands of a stranger is much worse!
