Where's that one guy that creates an App that links all these cloud drives into one, so you can have 100GB of free storage with like 10 accounts from different companies.

I agree. It's not really integrated that well. It seems like a band-aid until they come up with something better. Wish it was good - I have 20 gigs free on there.

It's really useless until they release an iOS app.
I too have 20 gigs from Amazon. I had forgotten about it.

But I saw the headline of this article with the word FINDER in it and ran and downloaded the app. Much to my surprise it was not what I was expecting.

To me being able to access "from finder" means that I can open finder and, well, access it.

Hello,

I'm new posting, but have been a reader of this forum for a while. I just downloaded the Amazon Cloud app. I also have Dropbox, and it looks like I will be keeping it for now. I like the way Dropbox places a folder in my Finder and Windows Explorer. Amazon's app does not seem to do that. It places an icon on the menu bar that I can drop dragged files to, but it just doesn't seen as integrated as Dropbox. I also don't like using my Amazon password to log into Amazon Cloud.

Well, now that Apple is getting rid of my iDisk, I hope they adopt Dropbox's approach to storage. When iDisk goes away, I won't be able to use iCloud to store anything but Apple data.

Anyway, I may not uninstall Amazon Cloud, but I won't be using it until Amazon makes it more user accessible.

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking! How does one decide which of these small free cloud drives to use? Or, do you set up free accounts on all of them, and use each one for different stuff? Well, that can get confusing very quickly. I'm always tempted to pay to upgrade my Dropbox to 50 GB or 100 GB, but I absolutely hate the idea of paying $100-$200 per year when I can get close to 50 GB of storage if I just combine a whole bunch of free cloud drive services.

If any of you out there are programmers looking to make a fast buck, here's your window of opportunity! Sell a $5 to $10 app which gives you a single folder on your hard drive which uses the free space from all of the cloud drive services out there, essentially consolidating all cloud drives into one! Shouldn't there be a way to do that?

I wonder why everyone is so eager to copy Dropbox now, are they making serious money or something? Oh well, I'll stay with Derpbox for the time being, given that I have `earned' 11 gb of free space, and all my friends use this instead of the newcomers.
