Although a late entrant to cloud storage, Google’s Drive is a strong contender in the segment. But is it worth all the hype? Here is our take on Drive.
some people also see Drive as a move by Google to imitate Apple’s iCloud. For those who think the that Google Drive will compete against iCloud, let me tell you – You’re sorely wrong. It’ll instead be intended to be a Dropbox killer.
The latest entrant in the already gigantic list of Cloud storage providers is : The P2P leader, BitTorrent. BitTorrent’ Share app, makes use of an unique technology where along with cloud storage, users individually allocate a tiny portion of their disk space and bandwidth for fast file transfer.
With this type of innovative technology, will BitTorrent be able to overtake Dropbox? My answer: No.
Google Drive is the most widely used online office suite. Did you ever wish that there was an app to sync your documents in your PC automatically with Google Drive. KumoSync might be the app you were looking for.
These days Cloud services are becoming an important part of our life. You can have a look at my post on some best free Cloud Storage Options.
With increasing number of players in the industry and the variations in the list of features they provide; we tend to shift from one provider to another.

While cloud storage services can help you save the photos from crashes, organizing the photos can be a big pain. Imagine a web app that does both the tasks for you. It would be very helpful, wouldn’t it? Presenting before you, SnapJoy, a Y Combinator-funded startup that organizes the photos, into albums, for you.
I have stressed the importance of cloud storage in many of my posts. Google Docs is a great cloud service, you can read my post on Top 5 Cloud Storage options. The major downside of Google Docs is lack of shell integration.
In one of my previous posts I had mentioned about Nocs that allows you to sync your docs with Google docs. But its use is limited to just one file type. Imagine an app that allows you to easily upload all the file types onto Google Cloud and overcomes most of its short comings (well most of, not all!).
Amazon recently launched its Cloud Storage solution – Amazon Cloud Drive, And it is of-course meant to compete with Dropbox, which is currently the leader of cloud storage provider. A simple reason for this is its simplicity and it was the first of a kind to offer cloud service in such a non-geeky way. Dropbox […]

There is no denying the fact that Notes are an important part of our life. We haven’t see many changes in the Windows Notepad,have we? While it does a pretty good job for people who save notes occasionally and aren’t that depended on notes, the major downside is we can’t access them on the go. […]
