Jottacloud

How does it work?

Full-featured Jottacloud apps are available on Windows, Mac OS. In iOS user can only view files in the cloud and upload some on it. This app brings more functionality to Android: photo/video synchronization, SMS/MMS contacts, etc.

Let’s consider Jottacloud for Mac OS X 10.8.2. For today this app is available only through the Jottacloud website. Once you install and run it, you can select folder you want to be synced with cloud. They use ‘Backup’ as a term but it’s rather sync – deleted local files are placed into the recycler and are irretrievably lost after 30 days. In comparison with Dropbox or Google Drive here you can select any folders.

Archive data is also available, but not really convenient-to-use. To add folder into the app you have to wait for synchronization then go to the site and move the content of the folder to the archive. After that you can delete the local files. They have been saved in the cloud. The data from the cloud you can download through the app or the website.

  • Low rates.

Advantages

This is hard to say certainly about advantages and drawbacks of this app. Jottacloud is pretty green but promising application.
