9/13/2011 11:51:31 AM Eastern

Irvine, Calif - Western
Digital has introduced two apps for its My Book Live.

The WD 2Go and WD 2Go Pro provide mobile access to a WD Live
storage unit for devices using the iOS and Android operating systems. The apps
can also be downloaded onto a laptop or PC to give access to a storage unit
from outside the home through the Internet.

The Pro version enables users to physically download files onto
the mobile device, while the free version simply streams these files from the
storage unit to the device. The Pro version also has automatic syncing of the
portable device to the storage drive, access to email, and additional security
requiring a four-digit pass code to gain access to the storage drive.

WD 2Go is Western Digital's second generation of remote-access
software. The WD 2Go is a free download, while the WD 2Go Pro costs $2.99.
