shutterstock 57468226 Feature Article: Five Reasons Why to Use a Cloud Storage Service

During the past 30 days, we published a series of blog posts and video tutorials on cloud storage services - Evernote, Dropbox, and Google Drive – and how to link them to the DocScanner app. In the mobile era, cloud storage has become the standard for storing files and transferring them between devices and users. We listed here five top reasons why you should use one.

1 Access your documents anywhere

The main advantage of keeping your documents in the cloud is that you can access them virtually anywhere with an internet connection. All cloud storage services have their own apps you can install on your mobile device. Most cloud storage services can also be used via browser, so accessing your files on a laptop or PC should be as fast and convenient as with your mobile device. Browser access can also be great for situations where you need to access your files using a device other than your own.

2 Share your documents easily

In addition to being able to access your documents anywhere, sharing is another important reason to use a cloud service. Usually, the person you decide to share a file or a folder with needs to be a user of that same cloud storage service. Whether it’s lecture materials or work documents, sharing in the cloud is super easy & fast!

3 Keep your documents safe

Mobile devices can get broken or lost quite easily. Using a cloud storage as a depository for your files ensures they are safe should your device get broken or lost. When using cloud storage services with DocScanner, you can set DocScanner to auto-upload your documents to the cloud. This way you can keep all your DocScanner documents safe. DocScanner also supports iCloud. Upload your DocScanner documents to the iCloud, and make them available on all your iOS devices. The iCloud can also recover your documents when installing DocScanner on a new device, or when doing a re-install.

4 Get cloud storage space for free or at very low cost

Almost all cloud storage services operate on the freemium model, where you get a certain amount of space free of charge, and more when you pay. At the moment, premium subscription for Evernote gives you 1 GB of monthly uploads and costs only five dollars per month. Even if you decide to go for the free plan, you still get 60 MB of monthly uploads – still enough for dozens of documents. A 100 GB subscription to Dropbox costs $99 per year, or $8.25 per month, and basically gives you a second hard drive. If you don’t need that much, you can still have 2 GB for free.

5 Accumulate a personal file archive in the cloud you can use in different occasions

Showing photos to your friends & relatives? Sharing lecture materials with other students at school? Storing receipts in the cloud for accounting? Why not to accumulate a personal archive in the cloud you can access anywhere, anytime? Use different cloud services for different purposes. Upload documents and receipts to Evernote, share photos on Dropbox, and collaborate on office documents on Google Drive.
