Best Cloud Based Apps for Bloggers

Here are a few apps you can try for connecting to the cloud. They are all pretty good, but there is a clear winner out of the bunch. If you are a blogger then you cannot go too far wrong with any of these services. The only thing you should worry about is if you have an automatic backup function, as your space may slowly be filled with backup copies.



Dropbox is the best cloud based app for bloggers.  The Dropbox cloud service is very popular, which is due mostly to their good marketing protocols. However, it is probably the best cloud service for any blogger, and here is why.

It is fast to upload and fast to download, and both functions work very differently (technologically speaking), but before getting into that, here is a little bit of background on Dropbox. When you store something on Dropbox it is encrypted and then sent to an S3. The S3 means “Simple Storage Service” and the one Dropbox uses is owned by Amazon. The servers for the Amazon S3 are located in lots of places (in the USA and beyond).

Dropbox is a better service than Amazon cloud service

The Dropbox service is better than the Amazon cloud service, even though Dropbox is using the same servers as Amazon. When you download you do not just download from one server. Your information is mirrored on other servers so that you download from more than one place, a little bit like how a sharing site works. That way you get your download quicker.

When you upload, it uses a caching system that means it will upload faster than Amazon too. Basically, if you are looking for a cloud service app as a blogger, then this is the app for you.

The Evernote

The Evernote Cloud API is good if you have Evernote

Evernote is an app that allows you to take notes, take memos, save videos, etc. Hop online and look it up and you will find lots of articles about Evernote. There is a clouds API that you can use on your phone or tablet. It is not exactly the best cloud app in the world, but its connection to the Evernote app makes it ideal for bloggers.

If Evernote just offered a cloud service then as a blogger you could do a lot better, but if you have started using the Evernote app then their cloud is ideal for you as a blogger. You can save your quick notes and ideas, or your blog plans, or you write your entire blog on there if you wish. It is really up to you, but as a blogger you cannot go very far wrong with Evernote and its cloud API. gets the job done easily. This is an easy to use app that allows you to access your cloud server from a mobile device. They are good because they have not restricted their services to one operating system and their interface makes using it easy. You can store your blog notes or blog posts on your Box cloud so that you may tamper with it and play with it during the day and then finish it later on your desktop computer.

Google Drive

Mix up Google apps with Google Drive for a good service

Google is not perfect, for example their emailing service interface on desktop computers is terrible. However, if you mix up the Google tools (available through apps) with their Google Drive, then you will find a lot of uses for them as a blogger. There are lots of tools that range from a calendar app to creating documents and spreadsheets.

Mix up the use of these apps with the Google Drive service. You may then create pieces of your next blog post and store them on the cloud. You then only need go onto your desktop computer, pick up all of these pieces and form them into your next blog post.

The Google Drive is one of the faster cloud services. It is not as fast as Dropbox in most cases (not all, as Google Drive wins some). It is also very secure because Google cannot afford to look as if it is not “on the ball.”
