Last week, we conducted our first Twitter chat collaboration with folks from #SAchat using a new #FAtech hashtag. During the conversation, a question was posed regarding technology tools. We've done some informal surveys of mobile apps financial aid administrators use, so we thought we'd share. Today's post is the mobile apps in what can be considered the "cloud" category.
Bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. Any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, your device, and even the Dropbox website! With the Dropbox app, you can take everything that matters to you on the go.
Google Drive is one safe place for all your stuff. Upload photos, videos, documents, and other files that are important to you, then access what you need wherever you go, on any device. Get going with up to 15GB of storage.
3. Skydrive: Free
SkyDrive is the place to store your files so you can always have them with you. When you upload photos or videos from your device to SkyDrive, you can get to them whether you’re on your PC, Mac, tablet, or phone. With SkyDrive, you can easily access, manage, and share files on the go.
4. CloudOn: Free
Unleash your productivity. CloudOn makes Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) files more accessible and useful on your device letting you edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations from anywhere with all the functionality you need.
Just because you’re not in the office, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have control over your infrastructure. You can manage your cloud infrastructure on the go. With Rackspace, you can view and create first and next generation Rackspace Cloud Servers; view the details and status of each specific server; and manage each server individually. You also have direct links that enable you to call Rackspace’s award-winning Fanatical Support by phone straight from the app.
