Cloud storage has provided a convenient way of accessing important data from different devices and platforms. With almost all of the work now done in softcopy, it has become essential that you are not reliant on the storage of any one device for accessing and storing it. What happens if that device gets faulty or stolen? How would you get access to the data on that device then? What if you are working on a particular file on your phone and the phone's battery dies out? What can you do to ensure that you can use the updated version of the file and start working on it again via your laptop? For all these situations and problems, cloud storage is a wonderful option. ASUS WebStorage is one app which can help greatly in this regard.
ASUS WebStorage is an app that's pretty simple and easy to use. The app offers cloud storage to all its users and you can easily get started by creating an account. You don't need to have an ASUS device to use the app. You can use the app even if you own a mobile phone of a different band. The good thing about the app is that it gets you started right away for the profile. All you need is a working e-mail address to set up your account and then log in.
The homepage of the app displays the cloud storage folder offered by the app. You can save up to 3GB of your data on this cloud for free whereas you would need a storage upgrade in order to increase the storage on your device. You can easily get started with ASUS Webstorage by tapping on the 'Upload' button at the bottom right of the screen. The app asks you whether you want to upload pictures to the cloud storage or any other file. Depending on your choice, the app would prompt you to your phone's internal storage and you can then easily select the file that you want to upload onto the cloud. Once done, the main homepage would show the file's name. Once you have stored it on the cloud, you can easily access it directly from any phone with the app after you log in with your ASUS ID. This makes it easier if you have a number of phones as you can then edit and save the file directly onto the cloud rather than to save it in any phone's internal memory.
The app offers a 'Collaboration Folder' which is like a shared folder. You can make it available for all users of the app or can create a group of members with whom you want to share the contents of this particular folder. Another interesting option is the star selection of files. These files are called 'Starred' files and you can basically access them even if you are offline at any given time. Any file which hasn't been marked as Starred won't be accessible for editing once you get disconnected with the internet.
There are a number of folder and file management options available to organize the cloud storage as well. You can create subfolders within the main folder and also rename files that you upload to ASUS WebStorage. You can also add messages with each file and this is particularly useful for files which you want to share with other people.
