Ok everyone I'm wondering if you guys are like me and find yourself using more than one cloud service. Im currently using dropbox, google drive, and Amazon cloud drive. Geez it gets annoying and Im wishing there was an all in one solution for a better price. Right now Amazon has the best prices in terms of cloud storage with 20 dollars a year for 20gbs. Problem is besides the cloud player which lets you play music from your cloud drive it becomes pretty useless. They had a promotion where if you bought an MP3 they would give you 20gbs for free for the 1st year. While its nice I am wishing it was more integrated like dropbox or google drive where you can use an app, or even upload data from your phone. Amazon needs to have upload camera pics automatically like dropbox. Google + does this but considering I barely use google + I dont want my pics uploaded there. I rather have them uploaded to google drive instead. Google drive prices are very close to Amazon something like 2.50 per month for 25gbs. Dropbox is nice but the prices are much higher.
Let's face it we all have a Gnex and without a SD card we should be utilizing these services to ensure we don't lose data. I have so far used dropbox mainly to backup my nandroid backups, all my pics, and other files off my phone for that just in case moment I lose everything. Such as dropping the phone, or the phone getting wet etc. You can potentially use free services until the cows come home but it gets annoying to keep track of everything. I still haven't tried Box.com yet, and I'm sure there are even more. If all the free accounts you can grab and most of them give you 5gbs each you can get quite of bit of storage for free. However i'm looking and the broader picture and want all my information to be backed up to one place. Anyone use something I haven't mentioned or know of a way to sorta make your own dropbox like service, im all ears. Or if you guys are using a different way to backup your gnex. I have tried to just transfer data from my phone to my computer but it doesn't really work that well.
Using dropbox for GNEX only
Google drive For docs and files- with Hello Fax ( Fax and Sign documents for free say goodbye to the fax machine hehe)

minus is another one very similar to dropbox... doesn't have as good of integration and ease of use on a pc like dropbox though...
but it does give you allot more storage... i think it gives you ten gigs free... if i remember right...
We have nothing to fear, but running out of beer
Tell you what, when I get home I'll give you my response to this!

10 to start. Up to 15 with referrals. I use it occasionally, with DB as my go-to.

While it has nowhere near the features of your other cloud services, godaddy has 100GB for either $25 or $30 a year. They do have an app, but there again not as many features as DB or Box. But the price is great! I use it for my business and am pleased.
