What’s in the Latest Update of the Mozy App?

Mozy mobile appAlmost one year ago, Mozy debuted the Mozy app for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android mobile devices. The Mozy App puts all the files you protect with Mozy right at your fingertips.

Today, Mozy announces the mobile app’s fourth update. The iOS version (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) is available now, and the Android version will be available early next week. For this latest update, we dedicate a series of blog posts to covering some of the improvements we’ve made.
In this post, we look at how the app now supports multiple accounts, and the new “quick access” feature.

Simplified login for multiple accounts

Admittedly, we were a little surprised to find out that many people have use more than a single Mozy account. So this feature is for those of you who use MozyHome at home and MozyPro at work, or share your iPad with others in your family, or just prefer the extra sense of security that logging out provides.

To make switching between different Mozy accounts a little easier, the updated app now remembers the login name of the past five users. Now you can just type the first letter of your email account, and then select it. (Of course, you still have to enter your password!)

As an example here’s the login screen on my iPhone:

Quick Access

The app’s “My Mozy” home screen has been completely redesigned to help you browse and find files by type. You now have Photos, Documents, Recent, Music and Videos all right at your fingertips. And, you can tap “All Files” to use the full file system browser you know from previous app versions.

Over the next couple posts this week, we’ll take a look at the iOS-only Favorites feature, the Android-only Downloaded option, and something cool and new for Mozy Stash in the mobile app.

Until the next post, be safe,
