Best Cloud Storage Services - iOS

Best Cloud Storage Services – iOS

We tested the most popular cloud file apps on iOS and found great options, each with its pros and cons, but some stood out a lot, while others disappointed. We take into account various points such as the ease of navigation and application design, the amount of space available and the resources available as well as the speed of each.

Google Drive

Indicated for:

If you are looking for a good amount of space and if you already have a Google account. Indispensable for those who use Google Docs.

Google Drive is one of the newest services for storing files in the clouds, but it is named by Google. The app a company response to competitors such as Dropbox and SkyDrive. It can be considered a natural evolution of Google Docs that was eventually integrated with Drive. The app one of the best alternatives to store and sync files in the cloud.

Dropbox

Indicated for:

Those looking for the widest range of features, applications available on all platforms and ease of use.

Dropbox was one of the first cloud storage and file synchronization services to emerge and was very successful. Through the iOS app, in addition to being able to access and download your files, you can automatically upload photos to your account. It is one of the most complete and most popular available today.

Box

Indicated for:

who wants a good deal of space and integration with multiple applications, even better if you need to work with multiple people at the same time.

Box is one of the services that store files in the clouds so we can access them from wherever we are, its differential is in the focus given the application, much more focused on the sharing of files between various people and collaboration in real time. One of its advantages is having the API open and probably being the most integrated service with third party applications, there are hundreds of service-oriented applications within the site itself, they are extensive to integrate it with Gmail, do OCR image recognition (recognition). Characteristics), add Box-related features to Office, editors and viewers for AutoCAD files, and more, mostly free but there are also some paid ones.

Sugarsync

Indicated for:

Who wants more space than Dropbox offers and similar competitor functions.

SugarSync is probably the most well-known cloud file storage service after Dropbox, that is, before the emergence of Google Drive, it is also very similar and has several features similar to its main competitor. The service comes preloaded on all new Lenovo computers and some smartphones, such as SoftBank handsets. One of its differentials is that it allows certain folders or items to be synchronized to only a few devices, it lets you manage each part the way you prefer. It also allows you to put passwords on files you share publicly, so few offer this feature for free.

Skydrive

Indicated for:

If you are looking for as much space as possible and cheap plans to increase that space, then this is a good option.

SkyDrive stands out for its initial space that offers only 7GB more than its competitors. However, another great advantage is the synchronization and reading of documents that are part of the formats used by the company, such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. SkyDrive creates an experience similar to iCloud, but for Microsoft products – the difference is that you can also edit documents in groups, just as we do in Box or Dropbox. And just like Google Drive, you can edit and add photos and videos from within your own iPhone. The only obstacle we find in all iOS apps is that you can't create documents, just add photos and videos (unlike the Android platform, which has these features available).

The storage media revolution is happening today. Technology giants are fighting to make their mark in this contest, which is great for us users. To choose from the best cloud service, you should consider whether you prefer design or space. There is also the possibility of choosing the cheapest, but not recommended. Google Drive has proven to be the best in many ways, especially in cross-platform integration.
