STORAGE VENDOR Western Digital has integrated Dropbox into its WD 2go app for its My Book Live portable hard drive and My Net N900 router.

The company has been pushing higher margin portable hard drives and with its WD 2go app it allows users to move files between disk drives through an Android or IOS device. Now the firm has updated its app to offer users the ability to access files stored on Dropbox accounts by moving them to local hard drives.

According to Western Digital the app supports the firm's My Book Live and My Book Live Duo hard drives along with its newly introduced My Net N900 Central WiFi router that contains either a 1TB or 2TB hard drive.

Jim Welsh, EVP of Western Digital's branded products and consumer electronics groups said, "Western Digital is committed to providing consumers with secure storage of digital content and access to it on any screen, on-the-go or at home. By combining access to Dropbox and personal cloud storage into a single intuitive mobile app, Western Digital is empowering consumers with the flexibility and control of anytime, any-device management of their growing libraries of digital content."

Western Digital's WD 2go app is free from the Apple App Store and Google Play. µ
