WD Rolls Out iPhone, iPod Photo Viewer

Lake Forest-based storage manufacturer WD has rolled out a new, iPhone/iPod Touch application which connects its My Book World Edition and WD ShareSpace network drives with the popular Apple devices. According to WD, its new WD Photos photo viewer application allows users to access up to 250,000 of their favorite photos from anywhere in the world, remotely logging users into their hard drives from anywhere. The new application is free for download from Apple's App store. According to WD, the app allows users to access their own photos directly from the iPhone and iPod touch, without requiring users to upload those photos to online photo services, by using a special application which runs on the WD drives to optimize photos for iPhone and iPod touch devices. WD said the feature is available without paying a fee, although it requires registration with WD's free MioNet remote access service.
