Cloud Storage and Your Mobile

With things becoming increasingly more mobile, it's essential for your technology to keep up with the times and ensure that you're never behind with what you need to do. Because of this, more and more companies and developers are taking steps to ensure that their services are available on mobile, whether through a dedicated app, or simply through a mobile version of the website. Today, we're going to be talking about why cloud storage for your mobile is such a good thing, and how you can utilise it best to get the most from both your chosen storage service, and your mobile.

Today, we’re going to be talking about why cloud storage for your mobile is such a good thing, and how you can utilise it best to get the most from both your chosen storage service, and your mobile.

Cloud Storage and Your Mobile Phone

The majority of cloud storage services have an app you can download to your mobile device which allows you to upload things directly from your mobile phone, or download things from your cloud storage into your mobile device. This is incredibly helpful for those of us who use multiple devices, or for those of us who need to be mobile with our documents; for example, a portfolio of creative work, or CVs for job hunters.

You can always use your mobile device for cloud storage, which is much better than opting for a USB flash drive, or even emailing things to yourself! Storing things on your cloud storage to access through your phone – either through applications, or through your mobile browser – is much more secure than simply emailing things to yourself (especially given the risk of accidentally sending it to someone else!), and it negates the risk of losing the information, data and media if your flash drive goes missing.

Something that’s slightly novel in the world of cloud storage is the NextBit Robin, a mobile phone which was launched in August of 2015 whose designers made the promise to its users that they would not run out of storage space. The phone comes with 32GB of physical storage space, and 100GB of cloud storage space which is integrated directly into the phone, giving excellent storage options to users who like to have a lot of content on their devices. This cloud storage is native to the phone, meaning it will become practically second nature to the phone’s users, and may even become the primary form of storage, whereas cloud storage to the majority of mobile phone users is purely for backup purposes.
