Dropbox

Website: Dropbox

Cost: Free

Download for: Android | iPhone/iPad | BlackBerry | Windows Phone | Computers

Dropbox lets you access, share and back up your work, no matter what device you are using. No more lost USB sticks and no more working on the wrong version of a file. Dropbox is really useful for backing up all your files and sharing large files, such as music or video.

Google Drive

Website: Google Drive

Cost: Free

Download for: Android | iPhone/iPad

Google Drive helps you to store all your files and access them from any device.

Google Drive is probably better than Dropbox for working on documents with your friends and storing your university work.

Evernote
