While rival storage service Megaupload is mired in criminal charges, RapidShare is pressing on with a pair of official iPhone apps – one for its paying customers, and one for free users. Approved by Apple and available on its App Store, the apps can manage and download files from users’ RapidShare accounts, including documents, photos, videos and music files. These files can also be sent “quickly and easily”, and there’s a dedicated Audio feature to organise music files in playlists to be played on the iPhone. “The iPhone app expands our supply of services onto the mobile sector,” says CEO Alexandra Zwingli. Is their approval controversial? Perhaps not: the apps focus purely on the personal locker aspects of RapidShare rather than letting users search for files elsewhere on the service. And in any case, the service was recently removed from the US Trade Representative’s Notorious Markets list of piracy havens.
