Zoho Writer – a free web based app gives you 1 GB of file storage FREE or you can upgrade that for a fee. This is a great service and the apps are more powerful and capable than Goggle Apps. If you use the service to store only your most important documents and folders as zip files you’ll find the free 1GB of storage goes a long way. Photos and multimedia can be stored, too but you’ll quickly use up the storage space. I use it exclusively for documents and emails that I really want to keep secure.
