Kim Dotcom’s Mega launches official Android app

Mega users now have an Android app available. Well, technically you had an Android app available, however that app now has the official blessing from Mega. Those looking for the app should look for one called Mega from Mega Limited. And just like the service itself, the Mega app for Android is available for free. Otherwise, the app is currently sitting at version 1.0.2 and with just about everything you would need in terms of features.

Samsung HomeSync Lite brings a personal hosted cloud solution

Samsung was heavy on the device announcements yesterday and it looks like they also slipped out some details on a cloud storage solution. The service is called HomeSync Lite and it will provide the user with on-the-go access to files that you have stored on your home computer. HomeSync Lite uses your home PC as the cloud and ultimately that means you can have that cloud access without any additional monthly fees.

Google triples free cloud storage for Drive and Gmail to 15GB

Free cloud-storage is something more and more people are looking for these days. With Dropbox, Box.net, Google Drive and more fighting for the top spot. Today Google's pulled a big move to beat the competition and have just tripled what they'll be giving away for free. Previously, just like Dropbox and others, Google Drive users received 5GB of free cloud storage. Starting today that will triple to 15GB.

Verizon Cloud service launches to protect customers “valuable” data

While there are plenty of cloud solutions available for smartphone users, it seems that many users go without that peace of mind. The reasoning here could be as simple as the person not knowing about the available options, thinking they are hard to use or maybe that they are expensive. Needless to say, we are firmly in the camp of backing up our data and it seems as if Verizon Wireless is also sharing that same opinion. Enter the recently announced Verizon Cloud service.

LG Cloud global rollout to continue next month

LG originally announced their cloud storage service just about a year ago. The LG Cloud was initially made available for those in South Korea, Russia and the US on May 1, 2012. Since that time we had known LG was planning to have this service available on a more global basis, however it wasn't until today when they released the details. In short, the LG Cloud will be available for an additional 40 countries beginning next month.

Google Mail and other app services restored

If you've been frustrated this afternoon with many of Google's services failing to work, you weren't alone. This morning Google and many others confirmed that they had an outage causing some issues and a disruption in service for many things like Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar sync and much more. However, the company confirms that service should be fully restored.

MEGA launches “experimental” mobile site ahead of native app

MEGA launched a while back and did so with a rather large cloud offering of 50GB worth of storage space. While things appear to have been going well with MEGA as a whole, the one piece they are still lacking are the mobile apps. Of course, we want to see a MEGA app for Android, however we hope they launch on multiple platforms at the same time. We have yet to learn when a native (and official) MEGA app will be available, however the mobile experience has recently been improved.

Dropbox acquires iOS email app Mailbox

Dropbox has announced an acquisition, Mailbox. We understand that some may not be as familiar with Mailbox given, at present, it is available only for iOS users. The Mailbox app launched for the iPhone a short while back and it seems to be all the rage in the iOS world. We have yet to see if the hype that surrounded Mailbox will turn into anything other than people wanting something they could not immediately get.

SugarSync 2.0 update brings new features and a new look [Hands-On]

We mentioned back in December when SugarSync released the the v2.0 update in beta form and as of a bit more recently -- that app has graduated from beta and is now available in the Google Play Store. One point worth noting with the version number though, v2.0 refers to SugarSync as a service. The Android app itself has jumped to version 4.0.0. Either way, a SugarSync app update is available.
