Best Windows 8 Apps

This is a good solution for Windows RT, which does not allow for direct DAV access to many cloud services such as Dropbox. With the free version, you can select 4 (5 including the SME service) of your favorite cloud services. The SME service allow you to manage all of your files and folders from any of your pre-selected 5 services. My favorite features is the SME app creates a DAV link, which installed on your Windows RT device, points you directly to the SME location so you can access and manage all of your files from Windows Explorer! Yes, I would prefer to access cloud services, like Dropbox, directly from Windows Explorer, but this service does provide a great workaround. You can upgrade, for a one-time lifetime fee of $59, and you have full access to all features, including adding more of your cloud services. The app is limited to 40 of their 'top' cloud services. I love Bitcasa cloud service and it is not on their cloud list. Try the free version and upgrade if you like.

It has some minor issues on my Surface but with it, I can set up a linked network share so I can use my Pogoplug with a drive letter. It is all I need to start using it and then eventually move over to SME which seems to be a good hub for all of these services.

Uninstalled as soon as I saw the requirement to setup an account with them. No Thanks! I don't want you to have access to all my cloud files.

I've used SME for years on my iPhone so I'm glad its available on my RT Tablet. Its a great App and provides a single view for all my different file / storage resources (both private and work). I'm a Personal Cloud user so I get the ability to use WebDAV and FTP above any of my clouds (whether they support it or not) and on my RT Tablet it gives me a true Cloud Drive to access all my Clouds directly from Apps such as Word.

Connected to Google Drive no problem but would not connect to Skydrive - kept failing even though there is no problem connecting from other places.

This app wants you to give SME access to all of your cloud storage. So, now not only are your stored documents accessible by the host, but also by these guys.
That doesn't seem like a really good idea. If it just worked as a client with the cloud services as the servers, that would be one thing. Why does SME need to be in the middle, and what are they going to do with that access?

I had this app a long time ago and remembered it again because of this Windows 8 app. The download works great except I was not able to add new cloud syncs.

This is a nice tool for managing multiple cloud sources and accessing your data from one location!

Looking for an App for my DropBox files and the default DropBox App is a disappointment. This App fits the bill but also works with my SkyDrive and Google Drive Files which is cool. Would like to see offline folder sync in future versions.

Cannot get a click to register on add a cloud service. Guess I need a mouse.

You get a lot for free with this App.
First to clarify free sign up. Click cancel on login and you can sign up for free. The free service gives 5GB Amazon S3 storage plus adding 3 other storage clouds. The free service is limited to 2GB transfer per month but this can be lifted with a paid package from the site, but for me 2GB is fine.
The App makes it easy to share files, create group collaboration spaces, and move files between clouds. Nice !
Now we can sum up our free storage to more than 50GB by unifying SkyDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive and so on!
