You should be able to access other Backup Sets. For example if you backup to a friend's destination you should be able to download those files locally using the mobile application. Especially if you are a paying Crashplan+ user.

I cannot do much with the application considering I am using a private key. However, it is good to see that Code 42 has entered the market. I'm confident that Code 42 will add this ability. There are some clever ways to make this possible given the integration channel. Certificates, voice recognition, biometrics, 2-factor authentication, etc. all of which could be associated with an account allowing private, secure access from the mobile device.
Tried accessing some documents and it was hit or miss. Unable to get photos. Forget accessing videos! Great idea but needs much tweeking. I'm sure it will get better.

What were they thinking? Can only frustrate and anger users.

I installed it and gave it a shot. I logged into my CrashPlan account and downloaded an image file as a test. The file wasn't viewable on my phone, so I emailed it to myself on my work computer. Not viewable there either (but viewable on my home computer). I don't doubt that it'll be good software after a little more work.

Inability to access files with one of the more advanced security options makes this fairly useless to me and anyone else who cares about extra security. Being able to back up the mobile device itself would also be nice.
Incomplete. Cannot use encrypted backups. Cannot backup phone or SD card. Cannot access backup job management. Useless to me.

While this app is faster at loading folders within your backup than Mozy's app, it is missing any sort of search feature. This makes it cumbersome and slow to use. In addition, viewing files from your backup is a multi-step process (download the file, exit out of the backup, click on downloaded files, find your new file), whereas the Mozy app lets you immediately preview files such as images. If it had a search feature, and it allowed you to directly open files from your backup, I would give it five stars.

Useless for now.

First, congrats! It's about time to have a mobile app for Crashplan. Missing: - access via backup sets - picture/video thumbnail - sort options
