Cloud Applications for Productivity

Most mobile cloud apps are aimed toward consumerism.  News organizations like CNN have mobile apps to get the latest headlines, Netflix lets you watch the latest movies, Pandora and Spotify help you enjoy music from wherever you have 4G.

It’s tougher to find applications that help you do your job in the same way.

We recently came across a great app that works with iOS (iPad and iPhone) and Android (although only with the JellyBean version at present).  CloudOn delivers a cloud work space which allows you to connect to some of the most popular cloud storage sites like SkyDrive, Dropbox and Box.net.  You can then create, open, edit, and save Microsoft office documents.   Word, PowerPoint, Excel – they are all there on your mobile device.  If saving to the cloud and grabbing the document from your PC isn’t fast enough, CloudOn even enables you to email from the app with whichever connected email account you have set up on your mobile device.

You can get CloudOn for free from either the AppStore on IOS or from Google Play Store on Android.
