Hands on with Dropbox competitor SpiderOak Hive; first look at new Android app

Ian Paul | May 8, 2013
The cloud is great if you want the convenience of accessing your files everywhere.

Long press a file and a menu pops up with options to share a link to your file with other Android apps, see the details for the file, and save the file to your device. Similar features are not available for folders.

SpiderOak's mobile apps don't offer any kind of media support such as music or video streaming, and the Web version doesn't offer features such as online-document editing.

Oberman says those features will be coming soon and to look for them in late summer/early fall.

SpiderOak also has big plans for creating more HTML5-based apps in the future to help it expand more quickly to other platforms, Oberman said.

The company next plans to convert its iOS and Windows desktop apps to HTML5, and then move on to a BlackBerry app.

As for the Windows 8 modern UI and Windows Phone 8, Oberman said the company has considered making apps for both, but has yet to make a final decision.
