    Default Where's Everybody Storing?

    I deleted apps, books and music (wasn't listening and it was YouTube if so). I have almost 2k pics on my 5! I backed up to my PC but id like a cloud based solution.

    You can sign to this new site called copy (click on this link -->

    It's giving 15GB for free and if you use the link above you'll get 5GB extra. Your space will increase by 5GB if you refer more people. It's all for a limited time. They also have iOS and desktop app. It's like dropbox but with a lot more space for free.

    I mainly use Dropbox and Box and iCloud, but I have accounts with many many cloud storage providers. I usually sign up with any new ones that show up even if I'm not storing anything there.

    I started using Flickr when they announced the 1 TB of storage for my photos. And the funny thing is the camera in the Flickr app is not half bad.

    They are also uploaded to Picasa.

    Just signed up and got 20 gb. Thanks! I see a spot for music but can't figure out a way to upload from my phone. I'm guessing I will have to upload from my computer?

    I use Google Drive for my Docs, Google's Picasa for my photos, Gmail for mail & Google Play for my music.
    iCloud for contacts, calendar, notes & Reminders. Also some of my recent photos on Photo Strem & Camera Roll. Regardless, all photos get synced with Picasa using PhotoSync.

    Good Luck

    I do use Evernote from time to time but there's Pinterest & Cozi. I use iCloud and have heard of Dropbox and Box. I am a fairly recent iPhone user so I was trying to see what everybody else is doing. Thanks!

    I'm an avid Dropbox guy; I love that it gives you privacy and security but also provides a simple way to share things with others if you want.

    If you want to sign up for an account, using my referral link will get us both some extra storage space:

    I use iCloud for email, contacts, calendar, notes, reminders etc.. I use Skydrive for documents and photos. I have a considerable amount of space on Skydrive, so it the most worthwhile option for me. I see alot of talk about this Copy thing, I must take a look.
