This past week Wyse announced a PocketCloud upgrade for both the Android and iPhone, a move that grabbed loads of user traction. The USP of the PocketCloud app is ‘Multi-device search’: users can access and search for documents or files on different devices or remote computers. Unlike Microsoft’s SkyDrive offering, PocketCloud does not provide an upload, access, and share interface. Rather, it gives users a way to locate and view folders and their contents in the Cloud.
Attention all iPhoners and iPadders: Microsoft has just launched the SkyDrive app for iDevices, giving you 25 GB of free space to store and share your photos, documents, and other files between your phone, tablet, and computer. The idea of free cloud storage and sharing capability may sound familiar to you, as Dropbox and Box.net have been in this space for quite some time (and more recently, Apple's Cloud). If you are an iPhone or iPad user, making the swap to SkyDrive should be a no-brainer. In a world where nothing's free, Microsoft offers the much better deal, giving you 20 GB more space than Box.net and iCloud, 23 GB more than Dropbox.
