Official MEGA App For iOS Now Available For Download

After the sudden demise of popular file sharing MegaUpload, Kim Dotcom re-entered the market with an all new modern cloud storage service called MEGA. Its redeeming feature - other than the generous 50GB of free space - is how it encrypts all your data so MEGA or anyone in between cannot access your files. I'm not too fond of the service since it has to be primarily used through a web browser, but they are slowly but surely coming up with native apps that make it a good alternative to its rather heavy competition.

MediaFire Desktop Comes To Windows & Mac With Syncing, Sharing & More

Speaking of popularity, MediaFire has become pretty much a household name when it comes to file sharing.

Tresorit Is A Cloud Storage & Syncing Service With Focus On Security

One of the major concerns that many people have about cloud storage is how secure their data will be when saved to the cloud. Privacy-conscious people tend to hesitate in entrusting their confidential information to a company without the guarantee that no one else will be able to access it. There are countless cloud storage services out there such as Dropbox, Google Drive or Bitcasa that offer plenty of storage space to you for free, but they aren't exactly known for having strong data security and encryption, which has lead to the rise of third-party apps like BoxCryptor for adding that security layer. If security is what you look for in a cloud storage service, Tresorit is can be a good choice. It’s a simple cloud storage and file sharing & syncing app for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS that aims to provide the most secure cloud environment for your data, and comes packaged with an elegant interface.

Shared Offers 5GB Free Cloud Storage Upgradable To 2TB & 1GB Size Limit Per File

Even though some find it hard to trust and rely on cloud storage services, the cloud is definitely here to stay and many major tech companies are now offering cloud storage in one form or another, either with their existing products or as a separate service. Big names like Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, SugarSync etc. have been dominating the cloud realm for the past few years, but that doesn't mean there’s no room for potential new entrants to hop on to the bandwagon. The newest to join the club is Shared Media, with their Shared cloud storage service offering 5GB of free cloud storage, with up to 2TB available at attractive pricing plans. Perhaps one of the best things about it is the 1GB file size limit for free accounts and even higher for paid ones, letting you save even the biggest of files out there to the cloud.

Amazon Cloud Drive Photos Now Available On iPhone

Despite being arguably the biggest cloud computing service providers out there and intensely used by technology ventures, Amazon's Cloud Drive app app is not as popular among mass market consumers as services like Dropbox or SkyDrive. Though more and more people have recently taken to using Amazon’s cloud storage, owing to the fact that it offers competitive rates and decent features. One area where the service has been somewhat lagging behind the competition is mobile presence. Admittedly, there is a photo management client available for Android, but the same couldn't be said for iOS until now. Amazon seems to have realized that they have a considerable number of users on iPhone, and Amazon Cloud Drive Photos has finally hit the App Store. The app is capable of uploading your entire camera roll to the cloud without any prompting. It is also possible to download photos from your account to the device you are using. Read More

Seafile Is A Private Cloud Storage & Collaboration Solution For Teams

Seafile is a cloud service that allows you to create and share a private cloud library of files with friends or colleagues. Files get synced for all users, so that if one person edits a document or makes any changes to it (if they’re allowed to), Seafile automatically updates the changes for everyone in the group. I know this sounds trite, but sharing files via the cloud is an amazingly convenient thing. Still, sometimes you don’t want or need to bring the internet into the picture just to share files between colleagues and friends who are on the same local network. To accommodate this, Seafile also allows you to create your own personal cloud for sharing files between computers in the same organization using its open-source server that's available for Linux and Raspberry Pi. It’s safe, because you use your own servers, and reliable because Seafile saves everything and you can even restore stuff you've accidentally deleted. It’s also secure because the files can be encrypted with a password. And finally, it’s mega-convenient, because all users on the network using Seafile get to sync their work with each other simultaneously. Read More

Invite Others To Upload To Your Dropbox Or Google Drive Storage With EntourageBox

When you choose to move your files to the cloud or keep the important ones synced with it, it is likely that you will find one good service that does it, and stick to it. You might also use more than one service depending on its features; for example, I use Google Drive, Dropbox, and Jumpshare. One of my key concerns about using a cloud service is that while I may be able to share files easily (and privately), I cannot receive them from friends through the service without forcing them to sign up for it as well. Under these circumstances, I turn to Google Drive because most of them - if not all - have a Google account. EntourageBox is a web app that fixes this problem; it acts as a bridge between your friends and your cloud drive, and allows them to upload files to a folder of your choice. Currently, it works with Google Drive, Dropbox, and Amazon cloud storage. Read More

Doo Comes To Android; Provides On-The-Go Access To Cloud Documents

Doo is a document syncing service with desktop apps available for OS X 10.8+ and Windows 8. It initially gives you 25GB of storage space to try out, and allows you to connect folders on your hard drive, your Dropbox, Google Drive, and Skydrive to it in order to make all your documents available in a single cloud-synced location. A user can selectively pick the folders that will be synced to Doo. The service has just released its first smartphone app, and it is for the Android platform. For now, the app allows you to view a list of your cloud files complete with thumbnails, and lets you download any one of them to your phone. The app does not support uploading any file from your device yet though. However, you can search for files, or view them by name, date, flag, companies, people, and other tags that Doo supports on its desktop apps. Read More

just.me For iPhone Combines Messaging, Email & Social File Sharing

With so much saturation in the App Store, very few apps can become instant hits these days. just.me has had some time to reel in a decent number of users since the app’s beta came out a few months ago, and it has been in the news for even longer due to the fact that some big names have been backing the project. Now that the app stable version has finally been released, we are pleased to see that it doesn't disappoint. just.me is basically an instant messaging app, but one of the great things about it is that the app works even if your contacts aren't on just.me, as such people receive messages via email or SMS. just.me also incorporates cloud storage, where you can keep any text snippet or media file stored as long as you want. The privacy is completely in the user’s hands, which makes it possible to use just.me even as a social sharing network. Read More

Zoolz Offers Incremental Cloud Data Backup With 100GB Of Free Storage

There’s no shortage of cross platform file syncing services out there. Each has something special about it; some offer more storage, while others sell themselves on distinguising features or a great interface. Suffice to say, we’re swimming in file syncing services. Zoolz is different; it’s file storage and backup in the cloud. The app uses a desktop client to backup files to your cloud drive. Unlike file syncing services that will allow you to access backed up files at a moment’s notice, Zoolz backs them up for safekeeping and asks for a few hours (or maybe days) to retrieve it.  The desktop app takes regular backups of select folders or drives. You can restore files from a backup, but you will have to first download them, which takes time. Read More

Copy Offers File Sharing, Cloud Storage & Sync With 12GB+ Free Space

File sharing has become immensely easy over the past few years, thanks to the fast internet availability in many parts of the world, and services like Jumpshare and Dropbox. The aforementioned file sharing solutions help users share files with much more ease than they could just a few years ago. In addition, such services also provides them with virtual cloud storage to back up their content as well as access it remotely over the internet. Copy is a great new file sharing and cloud storage service that I recently discovered and took for a spin. Available for desktop, mobile and web, the service makes file sharing as well as collaboration simple and intuitive. Read More

View & Manage All Cloud & Local Files In One Place With Files App For iOS

When it comes to accessing all your important files on your iPhone, solutions like iCloud and various other third-party apps let you import data from numerous sources. However, most such services lack the simplicity and convenience that would keep users coming back to them repeatedly. If you have to spend a lot of time just trying to learn using a file viewer, then there is definitely something wrong with it. Files App is a new iOS app that is perfect for everyday use, and can import files from just about any location or service you can think of. It also has viewers for most of the popular file formats including music, photos and videos. If you are feeling lazy, the app even offers the option to transfer files wirelessly via any desktop web browser. Read More

Access, Manage & Share Cloud & Social Media Content With CloudKafe

A decade ago, no one probably thought that cloud computing and social network applications would dominate our lives in such a short span of time. Though with so many such services and products at your disposal from the likes of Dropbox, Google, Facebook, Microsoft and many more, it can become quite difficult to keep a track of all of them in their separate apps. Thankfully, we've seen several apps for many platforms that let you manage them all from one interface, and CloudKafe is the latest to join that club. This web app allows to access, manage and share your content from many major cloud, social networking and image sharing sites and applications from a single window with ease. Read More

Manage Multiple Cloud Storage Accounts On Windows 8 With RainbowDrive

Back in January, we came across an interesting Windows Store app named Cumulo. The application basically lets you link and manage multiple cloud storage services under one roof. Although it was the first Modern UI app of its kind, Cumulo lacked intuitiveness due to a somewhat confusing design that showed all the connected cloud service(s) as a single drive, making things a bit difficult to manage for many. Today, we stumbled upon another such app called RainbowDrive that not only overcomes the shortcomings of Cumulo, but also feels simpler and easier to use compared to the latter. The application supports three cloud storage services as of this writing: SkyDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. Read More

Official Android & iOS Apps Of Cloud Storage Service Klink Released

The number of cloud storage services out there has been increasing at a really fast pacee over the past few years. While the likes of Dropbox, Box and SugarSync have managed to enhance their reputation by frequently introducing innovative features, there have been numerous other candidates vying to compete in this ever-growing market.

Dump Truck Offers 5GB Free Cloud Storage On PC, Mac, Android, iOS & Web

Even though the names Dropbox, SkyDrive and Google Drive etc. have become synonymous with cloud storage, this doesn’t stop new entrants from jumping onto the bandwagon. After being left impressed by the feature set of Maxxo, the unlimited space options of Bitcasa, and the ease in setting up your own cloud offered by Syncbox, we came across Dump Truck – an intuitive and user-friendly cloud storage service that offers up to 500GB worth of space! It is the brainchild of Golden Frog - a major IT firm with an already large online presence in internet services and applications solutions like VyprVPN. Dump Truck offers free as well as paid cloud subscriptions starting at as low as $4.99/month for 50GB, while free accounts get 5GB of space to start with. Read More
