Cloud storage has grown in popularity in recent years, with Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft and others providing an affordable means of backing up or sharing data online. While all of them can store your files, most have unique features. For instance, SkyDrive is geared toward project collaboration using Microsoft's Office software, while up to 250 songs bought from Amazon can be freely housed on Cloud Player.

I use Dropbox daily. In many cases, I find it to be the most convenient way to transfer files between my phone and PCs, and I often use it to share images and other files. The most appealing feature to me, though, is the way it integrates with the Galaxy S3 by uploading new photos to the cloud, which synchronizes with my PC so I don't need to add them myself. What's your favorite cloud service and how do you use it?
