Box.net has just been updated in the Android Market. Along with tons of awesome features, improvements and bug fixes they also have something else very exciting -- free storage! I've been a long time user of apps like Box or Dropbox but most don't offer this much storage. Box.net is now giving all new users 50 GB of storage completely free.

Google Music is pretty awesome - as an integrated service on Android, it's hard to beat. But there's just one issue with music stored on Google's servers, whether it's purchased from the Android Market or uploaded from your collection: it's only accessible from Android using the official Google Music app. With developer R2DoesInc's Cloud Music Sniper, that's no longer the case: this Market app allows any application to access locally stored songs from Google Music, so long as they've been downloaded to your phone/tablet's internal storage or SD card.
GeekWire got their hands on what's being presented as the wen interface for Google Drive.

DropBox has been moving up in the world in the last few months, due in no small part to excellent support of mobile platforms like Android. Today the cloud storage service announced a beta program for users of its Android app. Testers will get access to a newer, faster and more feature-rich version of the DropBox app - but that's not all. If you need a carrot even without the stick, beta testers will receive up to 5 gigabytes of extra cloud storage connected to your account, for use on any operating system, including DropBox's more robust desktop programs.
