Verizon Cloud content storage app expands from Android to iOS


Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) is extending its Verizon Cloud secure storage application from Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android to Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS, concurrently announcing support for additional Android devices including the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC Droid DNA.

Introduced for Android late last month, the free Verizon Cloud app enables subscribers to back up and access their contacts and multimedia via smartphones, tablets, the Web and the desktop. Consumers may sync photos, videos and more to their iOS device and share that content with friends and family, or stream music and movies on the go. Verizon is also offering a downloadable Verizon Cloud desktop client allowing users to back up content from their PC or Mac's hard drive.

"As customers use multiple devices, sometimes running on different operating systems, Verizon Cloud will allow for the transferring of some content between Android and iOS devices, making it accessible across smartphones, tablets and computers," Verizon Wireless said last month, adding it will expand the service to additional operating systems later this year.

Verizon Cloud offers 500 MB of free storage with all Verizon mobile plans. Upgrade options include 25 GB for $2.99 per month, 75 GB for $5.99 per month and 125 GB for $9.99 per month.

Verizon Cloud replaces the operator's Backup Assistant cloud storage service. "If you are an existing user of Backup Assistant or Backup Assistant Plus, all your content will automatically transfer over to Verizon Cloud," its App Store page states.
