The applications of cloud storage are particularly useful when using multiple devices and we want to have our files in sync, whether images, videos or text documents, and for that today there are various applications that offer different options. Nex I will tell you the selection of AndroidADN of the top 5 cloud storage apps for Android.
Best Cloud Storage apps
5. Ubuntu One
Ubuntu One offers 5 GB of space to upload the files we want in our account that will synchronize with all the devices you want.
It has the function auto-upload, it automatically loads each picture we take with our device not only with the main camera but also with applications like Instagram. It also allows us to easily share our content on Facebook, Twitter or Google +.
While it does not have many options, I must say that Ubuntu One is a great application with a simple and effective interface and if you are a user of Ubuntu surely you’ll stay with this.
Box is a market-oriented business application being the most downloaded with 92% in the FORTUNE 500.
It offers 5GB of space, and the application has several configuration options that have been increasing over time.
This application has already been a long time in the market and it appears that is one of the safest when it comes to reliability and safety.
Box also offers payment services for higher space: 25 GB for $ 9.99 per month and 50 GB for $ 19.99 per month.
SkyDrive is the service cloud storage from Microsoft, and you’ve probably already used it in your Hotmail account. Offers 25 GB of free storage but its functionality is perhaps not the best.
Besides the additional cost per GB is cheaper than Dropbox, which has 100GB for $ 199, while in SkyDrive would be only $ 50 a year.
One of the coolest features of SkyDrive is Office Web Apps , which allows users to upload, create, edit and share Microsoft Office documents directly from your web browser. Includes versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, and provides functionality to allow users to edit documents collaboratively, something really useful in these times.
SkyDrive is a solid application with an attractive and intuitive interface, which thanks to its 25 GB and support of Microsoft is an interesting alternative.
2. Google Drive
Google Drive , is the storage service in the cloud of Google; offers 5 GB of free storage for any file type and will integrate with Google Docs and Google +.
Among its functions include OCR capabilities for image-text search and image recognition technology to facilitate searching through your photos.´
In addition, Google Drive allows you to open more than 30 types of documents directly from a Web browser, including HD video, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop (even without the right software installed on your computer).
The cost of additional space is 20 GB for $ 4 per month and can be purchased up to 16 TB per user. As for the interface section I must confess that I do not think its aesthetics are gratly achieved, although its functionality is pretty good.
Google Drive is the best choice if we want to synchronize our entire Google account, from our Android contacts, to Google + and finally our data. You can not miss this one.
Dropbox is the most popular storage service in the cloud because of its ease of use and functionality. Also it is a multi-platform service that is available for Windows, Linux and Mac in its desktop version and for Blackberry Android and iOS in its mobile version.
Dropbox offers 2 GB of free storage space and although it focuses on sync and share files also has support for revision history, so files deleted from the Dropbox folder can be recovered from any device synchronized.
Dropbox works like a folder over your operating system, so it will be very easy to use. It also has a feature that lets you know the history of a file so you can work on it without danger of losing the previous versions.
This service uses delta encoding technology and to conserve bandwidth when modifying a file only loads the modified parts.
Dropbox is the application of cloud storage most downloaded and highest rated on Google Play , and well deserved. For all its benefits, interface and functionality takes our # 1 spot.
ClickFree Mobile Backup
Although not an specific application of cloud storage, we could not leave it out of the ranking since it provides a service that none of the above does.
With Mobile ClickFree Backup we will be able to make a backup of our device and store the same data in the cloud as it has support for ElephantDrive, Dropbox, Box, SkyDrive, Google Drive and SugarSync.
Its interface is simple and attractive, and offers exciting features without overwhelming us. An interesting option rather than interesting that could not miss in our ranking.
