Review: Store files in the cloud with CX

Store, share, and collaborate with your files on the go.

One of the biggest weaknesses of the iPad and iPhone platform is the lack of storage that most entry-level devices have. You'll almost certainly need a cloud solution to ensure you can store as many files as possible for future access, especially if you use either device as a work tool. That said, there are quite a few cloud storage options. So what makes CX a viable alternative and should you consider it over Dropbox, Box.net, iCloud, or any of the others?

When you open CX for the first time, you'll find a quick tutorial showing you how it works and what it is best suited for. Registration is required if you don't have an account, and like other cloud tools, you should download the client to your desktop for an optimal experience. After registration, you can set options like auto-upload of photos over Wi-Fi, creation of groups for sharing of files, and even setting offline files for access on your mobile device (a nice touch). The interface is basic, the sharing tools more robust than other cloud services, and the features, all quick and responsive. Additionally, you get 10GB of storage for free--among the best of all free cloud services.

CX offers one of the more impressive and feature-rich cloud storage apps on the App Store, along with a solid 10GB of free storage and very respectable upgrade fees. This is a good solution for anyone that needs a cloud storage tool with more social features and reasonable pricing.
