The race for the most feature-rich and useful cloud storage tool is in full swing, with Dropbox, Drive, SkyDrive, and Box getting enhancements what seems like daily. If you're a fan of the latter service from that list, then a heaping helping of new features just got piled up on you plate. And it looks delicious.

For starters, you can now view documents inline, which is a huge benefit for those who use Box primarily for document storage and sharing.

Cloud backups are a dime a dozen these days, and if you use Dropbox, you already have access to its Camera Upload feature to instantly transfer your images. Still, if you prefer ImageShack for all your photo hosting needs, then Skypath is an app for you.

Holy notifications, Batman.

Basically, it allows you to upload all of your pictures to ImageShack, effectively creating a backup of said imagines in the cloud.

Microsoft's competitor to Dropbox and Google Drive, SkyDrive, just got an official Android app. Surprisingly, it actually looks like it was designed for Android, though the Metro influence is hard to deny.

For the unaware, SkyDrive is Microsoft's take on cloud storage, though it goes a step further by integrating remote access and collaboration tools (similar to Google Drive). While SkyDrive is undoubtedly a powerful tool, the Android app only allows for a portion of the functionality of the desktop service.

When Google first announced Google Drive, the company made waves, if not by being better than Dropbox, then at least by being cheaper. 100GB of storage on Google Drive was $4.99 a month to Dropbox's $19.99. Well, today Dropbox is getting closer to being competitive with Google by increasing the amount of storage for its Pro users.

From Dropbox's blog entry on the subject:

Today we’re happy to announce that our upgrades are getting a huge upgrade!

Tablets have, historically, been less-than-ideal for productivity. Part of the problem is that developers are still trying to catch up to the new world of connected devices. One solution, as CloudOn demonstrates, is to bring together the best options from various platforms and merge them into a fluid product. CloudOn lets you use what appears to be remote access to Word, Excel, and Powerpoint from an Android tablet.

The app might be best utilized if you have a connected keyboard and mouse at times, as the UI is still very much the Windows-style.

Good news, Penguins! Google is working on a Drive client for your favorite OS!

Google Drive, if you haven't heard, is Google's Dropbox/Google Docs hybrid. It launched yesterday with 5GB of cloud storage and desktop apps for Windows and Mac, but our tuxedoed counterparts were left out in the cold.

The lack of Linux love caused a bit of an uproar on Google+, where #driveforlinux was a trending topic for a good part of the day.

Google Drive is real, and it's out, and I've been playing with it. If you haven't heard, Drive is Google's cloud storage offering. You get 5 GB free with an option to buy more.

You're going to hear two phrases over and over again in this hands on, so you'd better get used to them now: get ready to see "like Dropbox" and "like Google Docs" a lot.

Google Docs, by the way?  Gone.

Drive

There's really no point in denying it anymore for the folks up at Mountain View. Google's cloud storage solution, likely to be called Google Drive, is happening. In today's Android developer Hangout when the Googlers were talking about apps, the Drive icon and name can be clearly seen in the Android sharing menu.

The developer phone in the video could have a fully functional version of Drive running on it, which would lend some credence to the rumor that the service could be launched next week.

A PR just hit our inbox from the guys over at Quickoffice detailing their new "Connect by Quickoffice" app. Since we like Quickoffice, we decided to take a closer look. Here's the general gist of it: if you're a Quickoffice user, you can install the new app for free (with limited functionality) and save all of your documents in the cloud, allowing you to access view them from any PC, Mac, tablet, or phone.

Dropbox has been the reigning king of cloud storage and syncing for a few years now, but the competition is getting intense. LogMeIn, which is best known for its remote access apps, has just launched a cloud storage solution of its own called Cubby. Not only does Cubby come with 5GB of free storage to Dropbox's 2GB, but it also implements a peer-to-peer sharing system that will help you get around that limit.
