Access Backblaze Files on Your iPad

Are you one of the several million people to have bought an iPad already?

If so, you can now access your files backed up with Backblaze directly from your iPad. Since the iPad only handles a few file types by default (and can’t unzip packages or compressed files), get the excellent Good Reader application ($0.99) to view file types including: Microsoft Office, Apple iWork, PDF, photos, audio, and video.

See the video below for a quick demo:

Enjoy the service and send us any interesting stories of how you ended up using this.

And don’t forget that if you don’t have one yet, you can win an iPad by installing Backblaze or referring a friend this month!
