Jolicloud For iPhone & Android: All Your Social Media Photos, Links & Videos Under One Hood

Jolicloud is not a new name when it comes to cloud integration of data, as the web version of the service has been around for quite a while and has managed to gain considerable popularity among users. The idea behind Jolicloud is rather simple, albeit infinitely useful.

The services that can be linked to your Jolicloud account include just about all the popular ones, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and many others, making Jolicloud a truly useful integrator for all the content that matters. Update: Jolicloud is now available on Android as well. We've added a link to its Google Play Store page at the end. Read More

Twitter is one of the most famous social networking services out there. It allows you to keep yourself updated and get to know about events in real time.
