I think Gaurdly looks incredibly useful, I can’t imagine the number of lives that will be saved with that app.

so many filesharing services now, but dropcanvas looks interesting as it offers unlimited storage with 5GB limit per ‘canvas’, let’s just hope it will be able to retain it service for long term (with the free storage offer) :3
