Photo Editing & Sharing App Adobe Revel Comes To Android

Cloud computing is being touted as the next big leap in information technology. Besides different apps and services that work over the cloud, one of its most compelling use cases is photo sharing. Services like Flickr and Imgur are already popular among users who share their images and photos online. The company behind Photoshop, Adobe, also runs a similar service called Adobe Revel, which has been around for quite sometime now. Just last year in September, we reviewed its official Windows 8 and RT app, and yesterday marked the launch of Adobe Revel for Android. The app allows users to sync their photos online and access them from desktop, mobile and the web. Read More

So you don’t like keeping your private files on a cloud storage? Neither do we – especially after all the hullabaloo the National Security Agency’s PRISM project has managed to cause. Though that doesn't mean you have to completely sacrifice the ability to remotely access your important information. Cloud services aren't the not the only definitive answer to remotely accessing files stored on your PC on your mobile devices. After using Polkast for a few hours, I immediately knew there was something good about it.

Beat: Android Music Player With Floating Controls, Dropbox, Google Drive Streaming & More

Being a die hard music fan, I’ve tried a ton of music players on my smartphone. When I got my first Android phone, I immediately downloaded Winamp for the platform and enjoyed its interface as well as various features that made it a great choice. But that didn't stop me from exploring more options in Play Store, and recently when I came across Beat, I couldn't help trying it out. It’s a fantastic music player that lets you listen to songs that are saved locally, or placed on your Dropbox or Google Drive. Besides that, it has many great features such a powerful software equalizer and floating controls to navigate the player from anywhere in Android. Read More

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.

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

MEGA Client For Windows Appears; Syncs Multiple Local Folders With The Cloud

Last year, Kim Dotcom unveiled a new cloud storage company called MEGA from the ashes of his now-defunct Megaupload – the popular file sharing service that made headlines after a forced shutdown by authorities due to copyright infringement. MEGA has gained worldwide acclaim since then, and in turn seen impressive userbase growth. Besides its intuitive web-based dashboard, MEGA also has an official Android client that lets you sync files directly from your smartphone or tablet to your online storage. However, when it comes to Windows, the company has stayed tight-lipped about any details pertaining to whether a desktop app is being developed or not. All that changes now, as the beta release of a MEGA client for Windows has finally emerged in the form of MEGASync, though there seems to be no official word regarding it from MEGA itself so far.

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.

Safe In Cloud Is A PC & Android Password Manager That Uses Your Cloud Storage For Syncing

When it comes to password managers, LastPass pretty much seals the deal for most of us. That said, there are several other choices that keep popping up on the scene. One of them that I recently came across is Safe In Cloud for Windows and Android. The interesting bit about Safe In Cloud is that, unlike LastPass, it synchronizes your passwords to your own cloud storage and supports Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and Box.net. The application has a really clean interface, and does a wonderful job of safely storing passwords, notes, credit card numbers, email accounts and more. It keeps your all passwords in an encrypted database shielded by 256-bit AES encryption, making it quite safe and secure. What’s more, it can also import and export data between other password managers, and sports full browser integration with Firefox and Chrome. Read More

While Windows 8 did come with some SkyDrive integration, it was dismal, to say the least – especially considering how cloud storage is increasingly becoming more of a norm than a novelty in this connected world. With Windows 8.1, Microsoft has addressed these shortcomings quite well, integrating SkyDrive into the OS in a seamless manner. Not only can you easily access, sync and save your data to your SkyDrive account, but you can also sync more PC settings and your camera roll, and even set SkyDrive as your default location for saving your documents!
