Earlier today Western Digital launched WD 2go Pro on the App Store, a $2.99 universal app for iPhone and iPad to access and download media and documents stored in a My Book Live account. My Book Live, unveiled by the company last year, allows users to set up a NAS (network attached storage) device, and access documents from a “personal cloud” with different user accounts over the Internet. The first version of My Book Live came with an iOS app to view photos stored in the cloud, while the free WD 2go enabled remote viewing for media, and documents.
WD 2go Pro is different from the free application in that it enables users to download files for offline access, set a passcode, and sync entire folders from My Book Live to a mobile device. Furthermore, the Pro version lets users email files, share them as links, and print/open documents through third-party apps.
The WD 2go mobile app supports most major file types including Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, Apple Keynote, and more. So you can pull up that presentation and show it off on your iPad in 1024 x 768 resolution.
WD 2go Pro is available at $2.99, and it requires a My Book Live account with an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running OS 4.x or later. Check out the original My Book Live promo video below.
