CloudCube Allows Combined Management Of Google Drive, SkyDrive, Dropbox & More On Android
The file sharing and cloud storage space is very crowded, but many users still find it perfectly manageable to use two or more services at once. Cloud aggregator apps make this all the more easier and there’s a fairly large number of such apps available for just about every platform. CloudCube is yet another cloud aggregator app for Android that allows you to connect your Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, SkyDrive, and Yandex Disk, letting you access files in each account from a single app. Users can not only browse and save files from these accounts to their local storage, but also upload files to any one of the connected accounts. CloudCube lets you upload individual files or entire folders at once and has a dedicated tab for monitoring file upload activity. The app indexes all files on your cloud and local storage and offers a central search feature that allows you to search for files and folders from the connected storage accounts...
After installing the app, the first thing you want to do is connect your cloud drives. Tap ‘Available storages’ to add your first account, and the actions button at the bottom to add additional accounts after that. You can switch between different account by opening the navigation drawer. For each account, you can enable two-way upload/download as well as automatic sync, and also manually download new files added to an account to your local storage.
To add files, tap the ‘Actions’ button and select either one of the ‘Add files’ or Create Folder’ actions. You can then select files from your device’s storage and upload them. In case of folders, they will be uploaded with all files that they contain. You can view files in any account by selecting it from the navigation drawer and then visiting the ‘Files’ tab. Files can be opened in apps that support their format, and can be renamed, downloaded, moved to another folder, or deleted.
Once you’ve queued files for upload, you can continue browsing your cloud storage and the uploads will continue in the background. To view upload progress at any time, go to the ‘Activity’ tab. The search and index features can only be accessed from the app’s Home tab.
There is little to manage in the app’s settings other than the language and cache folder. It also lets you backup the app’s settings to a file on your device, as well as import settings from a file. A reserve backup for any of the cloud accounts can also be created.
Interface-wise, CloudCube isn’t very appealing and can be slow to respond to taps. Opening the navigation drawer is particularly slow, as is switching between tabs. For a more visually appealing app, you can give ZeroPC Cloud Navigator a try.
