Carbonite has released Carbonite Access for iPad, a free app that gives Carbonite users access to all of their backed-up files via Apple's tablet.

The app is officially in beta and is free to download from the App Store. Also available is an updated app for iPhone and iPod touch.

Using the app, you can not only see your backed-up files but share them as well. There is an integrated image gallery that'll let you browse through all of your photos and you can even listen to your backed-up music files.

Though the apps are free you will need to have a Carbonite account to use them - prices begin at £41.95 for one year's protection.

The company has also announced an updated version of its BlackBerry app.
