Pro Softnet Corporation, a Storage-as-a-Service provider, has announced updates to its IDrive Lite application for iPhone and Blackberry. IDrive Lite allows users to backup their contacts on their mobile devices to their accounts into the cloud.

The company says the service enables restores from anywhere in the event of data loss. In addition, it also grants access via any browser to manage your contacts. Options also include importing from popular social networking sites such as Facebook.

“It was important to provide a solid online backup utility for the mobile platforms and IDrive Lite is an endeavor in that direction. Our development team is continually working to enhance device compatibility and cross-platform restores. We are also working toward including more types of data in the backup process such as calendar information and notes,” said Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of Pro Softnet Corp.

Recent updates include reliability and performance fixes to both the iPhone and the Blackberry version. Additionally, if registered under the same account, it will allow users to restore contacts from a different device, a tool if one is upgrading from an earlier version of the device to a newer one, or switching between an iPhone and a Blackberry. 

And IDrive Lite continues to be a free service, according to the company.
