Great apps for cloud storage on your Android device

Jan 18, 2012

Cloud storage has become big business over the last couples years. Being able to save, share and transfer files over the Internet provides users with a great deal of flexibility, security and extra storage space. I have been using cloud storage for years, and find the service invaluable. Being able to access files over my phone, laptop, desktop and now Android tablet is important.

Right now there are many, many different cloud storage options available to you. Which should you choose? It depends on what you need it to do. I have tried a number of them. None are perfect but some do stand out.

ZeroPC Cloud Navigator HD (Free)

This is probably the most unique service I have found for cloud management. ZeroPC is a service that will allow you to access all of your cloud services under one roof: Dropbox, Google Docs, Evernote, Box, Flickr, Picasa, SugarSync and more! Being able to access all with one account is cool. The system runs in the browser on your PC and creates what they call a virtual desktop. You can simply drop and drag files to move them. You can setup your email in the system and use ThinkFree Office also from within the desktop. Once you log into the various services, your files will be accessible from ZeroPC.

You can sign up for a free account which allows you 39GB of storage space from your current cloud services, plus 1GB of their storage. There is also a limit on file size: 25MB. You can, of course, upgrade the account via their credit system, but is seems very reasonable.

The ZeroPC Android app is only available for Android tablets. The app is optimized for the large tablet screen and is very nicely done. The interface is easy to use and you can quickly find files from your different services. No need for multiple cloud apps on your tablet with ZeroPC! This service is pretty new so we will see how it grows.

Cloud services are very handy for storing and sharing files. Most do provide a free basic account, but there are differences and you should spend some time researching what you want to do with your cloud and then see which service will help you accomplish that goal. Accessing your cloud via Android is an option but from what I have seen there is room for growth.
