Cloud storage has become more than just a place to keep your documents and photos. Rick Broida at PC World offers tips on “how to leverage online storage services in ways you never dreamed possible.”
- Email attachments to your cloud drive. Send to Dropbox forwards emailed attachments to your Dropbox folder.
- Move files from one cloud service to another with Mover. It supports Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SugarSync and company FTP servers.
- Set the cloud as your default download destination. Go into your browser’s download settings and changing the destination to any folder that’s set to sync.
- Auto-save Gmail attachments to the cloud. Attachments.me, a free browser plug-in for Chrome and Firefox, gives you one-click attachment uploading to Box, Dropbox, Google Drive or SkyDrive.
- Sync unlimited folders among PCs. Cloud storage service Cubby works like Dropbox, but you can sync unlimited folders between PCs.
- Synchronize browser settings across all devices. Chrome and Firefox offer built-in bookmark syncing. Xmarks offers a similar sync tool for Internet Explorer or Safari users.
- Save Web content to read later. Both Instapaper and Pocket can store “clips” for reading on mobile devices.
- Put out a blog or website. Pancake.io turns text files into webpages and then uploads them to a Dropbox.
- Back up a blog or website. WordPress users can use the WordPress Backup to Dropbox plug-in and other users can use Backup Box.
- Access Dropbox files offline. Open any document, and tap the star icon to add it to your favorites list. Access it without an Internet connection.
- Send and receive faxes. Web-based HelloFax integrates with cloud storage services, enabling you to fax documents directly from your cloud.
- Print from your iDevice to Dropbox. Collobos’ FingerPrint software for Windows lets your iPhone or iPad print to any connected printer, but it also supports virtual printing to cloud services.
- Turn your tablet or phone into a scanner with one of these apps. Doc Scan for iOS, Genius Scan for Android and Handyscan for Windows will take a snapshot of any document, and convert it to a PDF.
