App of the Week - CloudOn

Written by David on January 17th, 2013.      2 comments


First app of 2013.  I have been using this tool for a while now and it is rapidly becoming one of my favourite production apps.  It turns your Dropbox, Google Drive and Box apps into more than mere viewers, it enables you to open any of the files that you hav on those services and edit them.  Within CloudOn you have the ability to create new Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents which in turn can be saved to your Box, Google Drive and Dropbox folders for synchronisation back to your main computers or for sharing with other workers.  In short this is an epic tool.  The only drawback I can see is that to work it needs to be connected to the net.  So if you are out of range of your networks, the app won't fly.  But for a free app you should try it out and it is my app of the week.

Yes I have seen that, but have not created an account at Sky Drive yet. Stuck in an MS authentication loop! Must get back to that at some point ;) I guess that it is a case of choosing your cloud synchronisation tool of choice and sticking with it.

That app also supports SkyDrive these days.

A brilliant app for creating docs on your iPad when booting up your laptop seems too 2010.
