These days, lots of people use multiple cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive to store and access content.

Cloudii App Features
It is always tedious to access multiple cloud storage and transfer files between them. Cloudii app for Android let you connect to multiple cloud storage services through a single interface. Even though you still got to transfer files to each account individually, you can do so from a single window. To use Cloudii, first you got to sign into each cloud account separately. You then have to give permission to the app to access/alter the contents of the cloud storage. You can do this through a simple pop-up window. Once done, you can access/control all the services from a single application.
All your files that are marked ‘favorites’ will show up in the favorites’ list, which can be accessed via the side menu. This frees from having to navigate through multiple directories in each cloud storage account to access a particular file. Android Cloudii app also comes with built-in auto sync feature that let you pair folders/files between your phone memory and cloud storage. For example, if you have a particular folder whose contents you wish to auto-sync with cloud storage, you can set it to happen that way.

One annoying aspect we’ve noticed is that the app collects anonymous usage data by default, and you won’t know it unless you check the “anonymous statistics” option under settings, which is enabled by default. Also, keep in mind that the app consumes 48 MB RAM while running.
