    Hi

    What is the best sky storage program for iPhone besides iCloud?
    Dropbox?
    Box?

    (I'm sorry I meant cloud storage not sky..in my headline)

    I'm on SugarSync - their app is pretty decent and because you can choose what folders on each computer to backup, you can browse through each of your computers documents.

    I use Gmail so maybe it would be logical to use Google Drive...5 GB sounds good as well..

    Thanks for your replies :)

    Actually Microsoft's Skydrive is great and so is Dropbox. Box.net is great too.

    Using Skydrive and loving it. I figure there's no way microsoft
    is going out of business!

    Have to chime in here for Skydrive, I've been a huge fan of Dropbox and have close to 250GB of space thanks to smartphone reviews I do over for my website. Lately, I've been more interested in Skydrive, it's beautiful, it's intuitive, it just needs an iOS app update.

    I think it was because I was a hotmail user for so long, they had a free 25 gig storage plan when you signed up for Skydrive. They decided to cut that back but gave existing users the same storage size they had before.

    I have 21 gigs on Dropbox and I think 25 on Box.net, plus lots on Cloudapp and the standard 5 on Google Drive.

    Which is why I don't need larger than a 16 gig iPhone. :)

    Dropbox.

    It is great my whole company uses it and it works cross platform so it does not matter if you are on Windows, Mac, iPhone, Android or Windows phone.

    I am hesitant when it comes to Dropbox and work. Recently a bunch of my colleagues who used dropbox had a virus.

    I've been using Dropbox myself with no problems but it made me realise that maybe a few alternatives might be a good idea.

    Never had any type of virus problem, I would look at another cause as they ARE all "colleagues".

    Dropbox is great as it's very pervasive in other apps. But other options provide a lot more free storage.
