Top Best Cloud Storage Apps for Android/iOS

0

Cloud storage allows you to upload and back up the contents of your device (iOS, Android) to an online source, saving you precious space. Cloud has become the thing of the present. Apple's iCloud has been quite a popular and seamless way to store your documents, photos, contacts and much more online but there are several limitations within iCloud. Here are some of the best cloud storage apps available to back up your Android or iOS device.

1. Dropbox

When it comes to cloud storage, Dropbox stands first. It has been on the top of all cloud storage app lists. Despite its somewhat limited free storage capacity of 2 GB – this can be expanded though by doing things like leaving feedback, following the company without spending any cash. For up to 1 TB of space, it'll cost $99 each year. If you want more than 1 TB, you'll need to spring for a business plan.

It's by no means the cheapest storage option available but a wide-range of desktop apps, integration with other services and its own set of business-focused tools are all designed to make sharing files and collaborative work a whole lot easier than it was in the past.

2. Amazon Drive

The Amazon Drive service comes in two flavors: Prime Photos and Unlimited Storage. Prime Photos, as you can probably guess, gives Prime subscribers unlimited free photo storage and the annual Unlimited Storage lets you keep an unlimited of any files you like. There's also an easy way to see where your storage space is being used within the app's settings menu.

For $60 per year, you can store unlimited amounts of anything you want for less money than Google Drive, Dropbox and most other services.

3. Google Drive

Google Drive has been the recipient of several new sharing and folder features that make it quite powerful for cloud storage. With 15 GB of free storage, its range of integrated document, spreadsheet and presentation platforms and straightforward collaboration settings, it's versatile enough to present a convincing argument for most users. Google Drive is the logical choice for the average user that doesn't need to store their whole life in the cloud. The Google Photos storage allows you unlimited image backups at a reduced resolution or choose to back up full-resolution snaps.

6. MEGA

MEGA gives you a generous 50 GB just for signing up, but also offers a focus on privacy. All your files are encrypted and decrypted on your device and not by MEGA's servers, keeping your private information private. It does come with the added complexity of bandwidth limitations though.
