Cloud Storages From One Place?

How to manage all your Cloud Storages From One Place?

Cloud storage

DESCRIPTION

One of the best things about online cloud storage is, it is amazingly convenient and an effective way of storing and sharing your files. But the problem nowadays is, there are so many cloud services available that it becomes difficult to manage your content, since different services have their own pros and cons.
So while I use SkyDrive for large files and Google Drive for documents and photos etc, I use DropBox for quickly sharing files with others. Managing all these services is a bit of a drag. Wouldn't it just be easier if there was a unified platform where you could manage everything 'under one roof'? Hojoki is just such a platform, where you can manage all your cloud storages from one place!

What is Hojoki?

Hojoki is a web-app that allows you to connect multiple cloud storages and other services and pull content from them. You can then edit, organize or share them. It allows you to create workspaces where you can add content, and add people as well to share with, so you can share photos and stuff with family, or work on team projects.

Hojoki
Hojoki is more than just a cloud app. It's a social network of sorts as well, where people can track their friends' activity (public only) on social media sites like Facebook or Twitter. You can comment on others' activity on Hojoki, such as addition of files, status updates, and so on.

Get started

First, you need to sign-up to Hojoki. Just visit the app page, and sign up with an email address, or using your Facebook or Google Account. If you use your Facebook or Google Account, you will be able to see your friend activity as well.

Once signed up, you will be taken to a screen where you can choose cloud apps to add to Hojoki. You can choose Google Drive, DropBox, CloudApp, Google Calendar, and even Twitter. So you can pull your Tweets, events from Google Calendar, and files from DropBox and put them under a single workspace for people to view all related files and links.

Cloud apps

Create workspace

Once you have connected an app, you will be able to create a workspace for yourself. There, you can add content from your apps, or add members. Members can access your workspaces, view files, and even edit them, based upon your preferences and your assigned roles. You can assign administrative roles as well. 

You can prevent sharing certain files simply by clicking delete next to relevant folder or app in the content tab. And from the member tab, you can add more people, or remove them.

The cog icon at the top-right will bring up your account settings. You can change your name and other info, change email subscriptions, and change your themes. If you want to connect more apps in the future, you can do this by simply clicking on the '+' sign on the top-right corner of your screen.

Surprisingly, we couldn't find any option to add SkyDrive to this app, which is somewhat of a let-down. But all-in-all, it's a great app, and makes life much easier for cloud users, especially those who work with teams, and is a must try for such people. Peace :)
