    What's your favourite cloud storage app? Do you like Dropbox? Google Drive? OneDrive?

    Let me know which one you use and why!

    I use all of them for different purposes, but my primary is Dropbox. I have been using them since they came out and over the years have earned a lot of extra space

    I use Dropbox, OneDrive and Google Drive, for different purposes.

    Dropbox used to be my primary, but I am transitioning away from it because some basic functions now REQUIRE a paid subscription.

    What purpose does each serve, if I may ask? Researching for an app roundup!

    Would you say that's a feature that keeps you using Dropbox? Earning additional space?

    The primary thing that keeps my Dropbox account live is that some apps have it integrated for online storage, but not (yet?) any of the others.

    I use Dropbox as my primary because of the ability to recover deleted items and versions, earn space and sync with a lot of other apps like 1Password.

    iCloud is convenient and Google links with all Google service well.

    I've also just started using Dropbox receipt which is handy

    Evernote, as a cloud storage option? Doesn't the monthly cap stifle you?

    One Drive. Most all my computer uses are done on Windows except my iPhone 6s+.

    I use Dropbox. All my day to day files are in there so they're on all my devices and of course I can download them from the web too if I need.

    It's all handy to be able to log in and word and upload / download audio so I can easily transfer that without need for a USB stick.

    I also use google drive for my automatic Wordpress backups but that's the only reason I use that.

    I use BT sync also which isn't cloud storage but that syncs my music library on my DJ laptop to my backup hard drive on my desktop. Both of those locations backup to Livedrive so belts abs braces there

    I use Google Drive on my Android phones and iCloud Drive on my iOS/macOS devices. I tried OneDrive a long time ago, but didn't seem to work well with my old MBP. I also used Dropbox years ago when I was in school, but haven't touched it in a while.

    Edit: Now that I think about it, I also use Samsung Cloud and Nextbit's cloud storage as well on Android. Heck, I've probably still got stuff in other places due to Android. I tend to use the OEMs cloud storage for each Android device I have/had.

    Maybe because of a slow Internet the only one I use for real is Dropbox, Google drive is where WhatsApp makes it backups so I have that too, OneDrive is something which even when it comes with Windows I never use it.

    The problem with Cloud is something that is the bless too, the needs to be online.

    By far my favorite is Box. I like it much better than Dropbox or OneDrive. The Box Notes are cool.

    I, too, use several cloud storage solutions, but Dropbox is my primary, followed by iCloud

    Dropbox. I used to have 50GB on Box, but no one really used its API as much as Dropbox. So I deleted it. I used to have copy as well since you got 5GB for every referral, but their API wasn't used as much either and their website interface wasn't that nice. OneDrive is a pretty good alternative, but I just prefer Dropbox. OneDrive used to give out a lot of free storage. I only use google drive for their online Microsoft office alternative. iCloud storage is kind of a joke unless you upgrade to the higher tiers. The photo library and backups chew through that 5GB quickly.

    Did you take advantage of that 50GB for life promo a few years back?

    Was using Box for the longest time, but I recently started using iCloud Drive. Liking it so far.
