After Smartphones and Tablets came into existence, Cloud Storage has become a primary storage for many people. Instead of keeping documents in multiple email accounts, cloud storages gives an excellent space to organize those files in a single place. Also there are plenty of cloud services available to quickly upload your mail attachments right from your Gmail account. There are also some services available to combine multiple cloud accounts and access all those data from a single place. Today I came with a list best cloud storage application for Android devices to access all those cloud data on the go.
