When your phone crashes, or your computer dies beyond repair, it's bad enough losing all of your precious files, without some know it all chipping in, "but you had backups, right?"
You've learnt your lesson the hard way, and have decided to invest in some solid cloud storage, so that you can back up your docs and photos as quick as a flash, and access them from wherever you are, and whatever ever device you're using.
The following are our favorite cloud storage services for Android.
If there was ever a must-have app, Google Drive is it. This all-in-one app gives you access to document sharing and storage in the cloud, combining what was formerly Google Docs and Google Sheets and Google Slides and so forth into one mega cloud storage facility.
It's super easy to view, edit, and share your stuff through the app. If you've got a solid connection, you can even collaborate on documents in real time. It's reliable and ad-free, includes 15GB of free storage, and has paid option with up to 1TB of extra space.
Dropbox is an ultra-popular service that we all know and used before discovering Drive. The mobile app is equally useful and allows you to store up to 2GB of files for free (and more if you invite friends to register). The service also includes paid version with extra space.
Dropbox is the perfect app to share files and folders with the rest of the world, and share content via email and social networks. Easy to use and very complete.
One Drive is the official app for accessing Microsoft's cloud storage from your mobile device. This service now only offers 5GB (formerly 15) and is more focused on professional and business level, but is still perfectly compatible with personal use for accessing your files and photos from wherever you are.
One Drive is accessible from any device and, if desired, you can automatically upload your phone's photo album to your network so you never have any problems if your phone is damaged, lost, or stolen.
Mega (formerly Megaupload) is the app that offers the most free space: a whopping 50 GB. The application allows you to download multiple files, and uploading via the app, adjusting the speed as necessary.
It is ideal for making very large files available publicly, and as if that were not enough, the service also includes a chat function for private communication.
Box is perhaps the least known service from the list, but also one of the most successful. Box focuses on professional and business use, and offers 5GB of free storage (though from time to time, you can take advantage of offers to increase capacity).
Box lets you access your documents from anywhere and modify them whenever you want, in addition to storing your personal files privately and securely. If you are concerned about the privacy and security of your files, Box is definitely worth considering.
