Following last week’s post about the best cloud storage providers… we found a number of apps that will allow users with multiple cloud storage accounts to connect them all together.
What does that mean? Well if you own a Dropbox account, a Google Drive account and a One Drive account, you can link all these accounts together so they can all be quickly searched from a single point.
Sounds handy ey? We know how tedious it can be searching each account for a particular file. Thankfully we’ve reviewed a few tools out there to help you manage your cloud accounts.
Let’s take a quick look…
A file manager for all your cloud services and even your social networking accounts, Otixo supported services include: Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, SugarSync, CX, Facebook, SkyDrive, Amazon S3, and many more. A great feature of this service is the ability to cut and paste between services. Price ranges from free to $9.99 USD per month, depending on the personal or business package you choose.

Odrive lets you connect directly to all your disparate storage apps and brings them all to you in a single desktop folder. Once you have a file synced to your computer, files can be dragged and dropped. You can move them around from account to account to keep things organized just the way you like. Open and edit files directly from odrive and if you are offline at the time you save, it will make sure the files get to the cloud once you re-establish internet connection.
