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.

Mega Manager app provides on the go access to your Mega account

It looks like Kim Dotcom's Mega service now has an Android app. Albeit, an unofficial Android app. The app is called Mega Manager and it has been launched in an alpha phase, which somehow seems fitting given the actual Mega service is still carrying a beta tag. The Mega Manager app is available for free and going back to the app being in alpha, it comes with a reminder that it is still a work in progress.

MediaFire Android app lands in Google Play with 50GB of free storage

MediaFire happens to be one of the more well known cloud storage solutions available. And while they have a nice offer, 50GB of free cloud-based storage (and a 200MB file upload size), there has been one item that may have kept them from being fully adopted by Android users -- the lack of an app. That being said though, the MediaFire Android app has recently come available.

SugarSync 2.0 for Android beta now available

SugarSync announced the 2.0 beta back in mid-November. Current users have had the option to upgrade to the new (still in beta) versions on the desktop and the web and as of today, you now have the option to run the beta app on your Android handset. The one catch, the app is not yet available from Google Play and instead will need to be downloaded and sideloaded.

Amazon cloud outage brings Reddit, Pinterest, Netflix down

Amazon's cloud services seem to be struggling a bit today, as our friends at SlashGear are reporting that a failure has brought down a number of huge sites like Netflix, Reddit, Pinterest, and Foursquare. The outage, according to Amazon's own Web Service Dashboard, looks to be the fault of Amazon's EC2 services, but we're pleased to say that things are getting better. Whereas before, EC2's status alerted that "new launches for EBS backed instances are failing," at the moment, the status is "Degraded EBS performance in a single Availability Zone."
