Wuala, a service that securely stores your files in the Cloud, just release their Android App. With the android app, you can now access your photos, videos and files stored on Wuala using your Android device (phone, tablet etc).
Like Dropbox and SugarSync, Wuala is a cloud-based files storage and retrieval service. However, unlike the other two, with Wuala all files are encrypted directly on the user’s computer before uploading over the internet, and the password is never transmitted. So no one unauthorized – not even Wuala – can access the user’s files! The technology powering Wuala was researched at ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Switzerland, which is also where the Wuala Head Quarters is located.

What is Wuala?
Wuala is an online cloud-based file storage service. The services helps you share and store sensitive and private files while keeping them safe and protected at the same time. The service is very similar to DropBox and SugarSync, (with the added encryption security that I mentioned before) and like Drop Box, users can select what files that they want to share, and with who, via invitations.
Pro pay options include backup, sync, going back into time to retrieve an old version of a file. The service and mobile applications are free and come with 1GB of cloud storage upon sign up. Additional storage beyond 1 GB can be purchased at $30 for 10 gigs all the way up to $290 per year for 250GB of storage (these rates are as of April 2011)
To date, Wuala has stored nearly 500 million files securely.
