WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Pro Softnet Corporation, a leader in the Storage-as-a-Service, Online Backup and Storage market, today 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 and also enables restores from anywhere in the event of a loss. In addition, it also grants access via any browser to manage their contacts. Options also include importing from popular social networking sites such as Facebook.

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 very handy tool if one is upgrading from an earlier version of the device to a newer one, or switching between an iPhone and a Blackberry. Moreover, IDrive Lite continues to be a free service.

"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.
