Share files among the clouds

Sharing files between Google Docs and Box, Dropbox, or SkyDrive is simply a pain. The standard method to share between them is to download the file to your desktop and then upload it to the other service. A better alternative is to use the online service Otixo, which lets you manage multiple cloud file services in one central location and transfer files among them without downloading anything to your computer.

OtixoOnce you’re signed up for Otixo, get started by clicking My Cloud Services and selecting the accounts you want to add. After you’ve authorized each service, you can simply drag and drop files between, say, Google Docs and Dropbox.

Otixo currently works with a number of online services, including Google Docs, Amazon S3, Box, Files Anywhere, GoDaddy Online Storage, GMX, Picasa, SkyDrive, and SugarSync, as well as WebDav and FTP servers.

Otixo is free for up to 250MB of bandwidth usage each month, and costs $10 for unlimited access to transfer and manage your online files. It will convert documents saved in the native Google Docs format into .doc files when you move them from Google Docs to Dropbox or another service.

In my tests, Otixo also worked well on the iPad when I transferred files among various “clouds.”
