Add storage space to your android

1. Zumo Drive

ZumoDrive costs money or gives very little storage space. The free account of ZumoDrive comes only with 1GB of storage space. ZumoDrive supports multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iPhone, Android and Palm Pre. This make managing your files much easier. Secondly, it comes with an inbuilt music player so you can play/stream your music directly from your ZumoDrive account.

2. Sorami using Microsofts Skydrive

Of all the cloud based storage services, Microsoft’s Skydrive is the most general, giving you a whopping 25GB free storage space but it is purely web based without any tool for its users to access it from the desktop (or phone). Sorami is an app of Skydrive by a third party developer. You can access your Skydrive folder and download/upload files to it. The app is still beta, and might be your only choice if you are an active Skydrive user.

3. Box.net

If you are looking for an app with a simple interface, use Box.net.
The Android version of Box.net is just a simple implementation of its web interface. After you have login to the app, you can access or upload files to your web folder.
The free version comes with 5GB of storage space.

4. Dropbox

The free account comes with a 2GB space, but you can gain extra storage space (up to 8GB) by referring friends to use the service, or to get connected via any social means. Dropbox is available in all platforms so you can easily drop a file in any of the computer and access it immediately in your mobile phone.
The Android app only shows a list of the files you have in the cloud and download the necessary file only when you need it. Similarly, you can upload files from the Dropbox app. It does not automatically sync the files/folders that you placed in the Dropbox folder.
You can create files (Picture, Video, Audio, Text file, Folder) from your phone so that you can quickly take a photo and sync it to the Dropbox folder.

5. SugarSync

SugarSync is functionally similar to Dropbox, except that it provides 5GB of free storage space (3GB more than Dropbox). Both of them support multiple platforms, but Dropbox has the slight advantage with Linux support, while SugarSync don’t.
