Hey XDA

I know Dropbox is basically the dominant force in the cloud market but still there are some other competitors.

The closest competitor would be SugarSync but I really hate their interface and I think their service is slow and terrible.

Just wondering if you guys know about any decent dropbox alternative?

I was able to find a list of some good cloud apps here but I was wondering if there was one that I haven't heard about:

Depends on what you need:
For keeping your devices in sync and backups of personal stuff: Wuala. Simply because it's got client-side encryption where the company running it can't access any of your stuff, even if they wanted to.
For sharing: Dropbox as it's got the widest range of users. I'd still recommend Wuala over it 10 times though.

Box now has a PC client just like dropbox. And I do have a 50gb free account.
Also have Gdrive and Skydrive but I don't use it.
Oh, and Sugarsync only for notes.

Started using Skydrive lately. 25gb space, have most of my school work and pdf's uploaded there. Mobile access? Havent used it that often, but it could be great for backing up pictures, videos and wallpapers. Upload speed is slow maybe ~100 kB/s if anything.
