Using a large number of cloud storage services can lead to the nuisance of not being able to manage each of them efficiently. That’s where services like MultCloud aim to offer a handy solution by letting your control and manage your cloud accounts from one unified interface. Based entirely online, it lets you create a MultCloud profile, to which you can connect your other cloud storag services for easy access and management. The service currently supports most major cloud storage providers including Dropbox,
SugarSync, Google Drive, SkyDrive, Box and Amazon S3.
MultCloud is quite easy to configure, and takes only a couple of minutes for setting things up. It doesn’t require you to enter a lot of details – just your email address, name and password would do. Once you visit the website (via the link provided at the end of this post), you can click the ‘Create An Account’ button to get started. Once an account has been created, just make sure to verify your email address with the service from the link provided in the confirmation email that’s sent to your inbox.
Next, you just need to enter your email address and password at the login screen after the verification to finally log in to your account – it’s simple as that.
While design isn’t the main focus of the app, but it’s still pretty well crafted. The fine-looking interface of the dashboard makes the service fairly intuitive to use. From the dashboard, you can add the cloud drives of your choice to the service. To do that, simply choose one of the services from the available options, specify a display name for it, and click Add. After that, you will need to sign in to the service with your account (if you aren’t signed in already) and authorize MultCloud with the appropriate permissions when prompted.
Once a cloud service account has been added, you can do pretty much everything from it that could possibly be done from a dedicated client or web interface of that service. For example, you can easily view contents of your cloud storage, upload files to it, download existing cloud files to your local storage, and create new folders. MultCloud also offers a preview feature for some files such as images. Other than that, you can rename your files and copy and move them between different cloud folders.
Overall, MultCloud is a great service that keeps things simple while taking the hassle of controlling all your cloud accounts from different browser tabs or desktop clients out of the way. The service is currently available for free.
