Connect Your Linux PC to Your Android Phone with UbuntuOne Files

Bridge the gap between your Android phone and your Ubuntu PC with UbuntuOne Files cloud service.

While every major platform has a cloud solution, Linux Ubuntu is not an exception. With UbuntuOne evolving as a worthy alternative for Dropbox, Android users can now download their UbuntuOne Files to their PC.

To clear things out, the UbuntuOne cloud service does not require an Ubuntu PC. It can work with Windows PC or Mac, but it performs best with the Linux OS. It provides a seamless folder and file management experience for Ubuntu users. To get the UbuntuOne Files app, you can download it at the Android Market. After that, you now have an immediate access to your files stored in your UbuntuOne cloud account. The app has a built-in photo viewer, and hands off other file formats to its default viewer.

If you have a premium UbuntuOne account, you can also add the UbuntuOne music app to stream songs from your account to your phone. Are you using your UbuntuOne Files already? Then share your impressions on this new Android app at the comments.

For years, people have thought that Dropbox and Google Docs are two good services that would work great together. Now, it looks like Dropbox may be giving us this functionality.

For years, people have thought that Google Docs and Dropbox are two good services that will work great together. Dropbox is a popular cloud service that enables you to store, sync, and share files over the Internet. Google Docs, on the other hand, lets you create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations on the Internet. And it seems that Dropbox will be giving the kind of functionality that its every users are looking for.

During the first annual Dropbox Hack Week, a developer was able to set up a way to sync Google files and Dropbox. Though there are no words on when this feature will show up, it seems that users will get it sooner or later. Many of the breakthroughs made during the Dropbox Hack Week will probably make their way soon.
