Last month I talked about cloud storage with the combination of CloudOn and Dropbox. The combination of the two really were a great add-on to your iPad for accessing and editing files. Certainly, with Google’s long awaited release of Google Drive I thought it only fair to discuss some of your other cloud storage options.
Newly released, Google Drive offers 5 GB of free storage with the option of upgrading for a minimal fee.
Google Drive allows you to access your files from the web, on your computer or on your mobile phone.
Regardless of where you edit your files, files are immediately synchronized so you feel comfortable that you always have the latest and greatest. Email attachments too big? Share your Google Drive instead!
Microsoft now offers 7 GB of free storage (although more free storage than most others, this is reduced from 25 GB).
Similarly to Google Drive, you can access your files from the web, on your computer or on your mobile phone. In addition, your files are immediately synchronized. SkyDrive also offers storage for pictures and has a fetching feature in case you forgot to load a needed file on your SkyDrive.
SugarSync combines the best of SkyDrive and Google Drive with a twist. With up to 5 GB of free storage space, access your files from any device and have it synchronize. In addition, you can share public links to your files via Facebook, Twitter , email or Blog.
Of course there are more!
