Directly Export Or Add Attachments From Cloud In Gmail With Kloudless

During the past few years, cloud storage has becoming increasingly popular among everyone. One of the many benefits it has is that one can easily share a file with many people after uploading it just once to the cloud. Although I personally prefer Dropbox for my cloud storage needs, you can choose from a vast range of other options, each having its own set of features and pricing. But where sharing is the key element of the cloud – other than backup, of course – having an option for the cloud files to be sent directly as email attachments can also be quite useful. Similarly, many of us can use the ability to export our email attachments directly to our cloud storage. A handy service called Kloudless for Google Chrome and Firefox aims to help in this regard by allowing you to integrate multiple cloud storage services in Gmail. Read More

Ubuntu Touch 13.10 Saucy Salamander: In-Depth Review & Screenshot Tour
