    So right now I'm using one drive, Dropbox, iCloud, and google drive. I'm deciding on one or two I'd like to use and spend money to get more storage, but can't decide.

    I use a mix of different devices: iPhone, iPad, PC, nexus 7, Apple tv and roku 3.

    So iCloud may be too limited because I don't own all Apple devices, but I may get the 20gb plan because it's cheap and I could use it for my back ups.

    Then that leaves the other three. Compatibility wise, Dropbox is best it seems. But it's more expensive than one drive and Google drive. If I get office 365 I get unlimited one drive storage. Google drive is still affordable for 1 TB.

    So there's a lot of good options. Any suggestions?

    I'm a storage hog. Will one drive work well for your iDevices?

    Yup. One drive works great with iOS. I have it for my family.

    I find it to work pretty well. If you have a Mac im not sure how good that app is on their. But for stuff like backing up photos and basic file storage I think it's pretty great.

    I use Box, Dropbox and OneDrive. OneDrive seems buggy to me when viewing photos. Box is my favorite for photos. But the file size is limited. So larger videos go in Dropbox.

    I wish Dropbox wasn't so expensive though.

    Seriously what is that you are looking for?
    Can't decided on a Apple TV a phone a computer and now a cloud service.
    You put way too much thought in this stuff.
    You seem afraid to get into the Apple Ecosystem as if a van full of Apple geniuses will come to your home and chain you up in your basement. You gotta relax.

    Nahif that were to happen he would just get into a debate on which size links to use in the chain so he wouldn't get locked in to one chain manufacturer.

    The reason I'm afraid of going too far in the apple ecosystem is that there stuff doesn't work on other platforms. I don't want to feel like I have to always get Apple just because my stuff is locked in their services.

    Then use Dropbox and call it a day.

    Like you should have did when you created the same thread a year ago.

    I still have issues with their pricing. For the same 9.99 a month I could get office 365 with unlimited one drive space and a office suite.

    Box is nice. 10 gb free. Not for big videos though. But great for photos.

    My main issue with one drive is that it's not as platform agnostic as Dropbox. And I have no clue how it performs on platforms like Mac.
