Cloud content with iOS – VI Minus

This is the sixth and final installment of this section of Applesupportphonenumber that deals with content in the cloud. If in the previous ones we analyzed applications like Dropbox, Wuala, Box, SugarSync or SkyDrive, this time we’re going to talk about a quite curious one, Minus. Let’s analyze it in depth and see what is good and not so good about it.

We arrived at the sixth and last delivery of this section that more than a month ago we called Content in the cloud and that from Applesupportphonenumber we have created as some guides to facilitate its use. It seems like yesterday when I started, but everything has an end.

Cloud content with iOS – VI MinusCloud content with iOS – VI Minus

In this section we’ve analysed different applications which I won’t list, as I’m sure all of you who have followed it know them and I don’t want to be a bore. Today I’m going to comment on the last one that has passed through my hands and that answers to the name of Minus.

And the truth is, it’s the last and the hardest one for me to deal with in your analysis. To begin with we must say that in common with the previous ones we can find that has a web application, that although not too intuitive, yes that is one of the most complete . To be able to begin to make use we only must register by means of a mail and we will have access to 10Gb of storage of free character, although we can get up to 50Gb sharing our stored documents or inviting friends. Minus as you can see, has inserted a social character that some of the other applications lack.

Regarding the desktop application little to comment. Similar to the previous ones it allows us to order all our documents and then have them available from any device we use. The application is available for the most popular mobile platforms, i.e. Android, iOS and Windows Phone and on all of them for free .

Once we have entered the application we find a screen where the options appear on our left in different tabs, having in common all that let us see our profile data. The options shown are: My uploads, My feed, Upload, More and Exit .

The first tab shows us the files we have uploaded. I have tried with some photos but we can upload videos, music files and documents. Everything is shown here in the same order as in the desktop version. Once selected, several options are shown. First, a drop-down menu located at the top, allows us to edit in the sense of making the file public , change the folder, etc. To get out of this accessory tab we just have to slide it up.

On the other hand, at the bottom we see Share , in which appears up to seven different ways of using our content on the net .

The tab My feed is the “social” one. In it , different content appears randomly depending on what we have uploaded . In my case, Minus users’ image folders are generated. These can be shared in the same way, which will increase the counter on the left called shares . Regarding karma I haven’t been able to figure out how to use it.

The other important tab is Upload . In this case we are facing a limitation and that is that the content we can upload is exclusively photographic or video format , although it gives us the possibility to do so from the gallery or from the camera application of our device.

Coming to the end, we see the More tab . Little to note about it. It only shows us as options the possibility of emptying the cache if we are short of space, a folder as an example in which you can see how to use the content we have with examples of music, video, images and documents and finally the contact options.

It is another application with which we can unburden ourselves a little bit of the capacity of our devices, which is different in some aspects from the others we have touched, but in which and as it happens in those, I miss being able to upload from the device something more than videos and images . I don’t know if it is due to the closed character of iOS, which I think it is, because these same applications in Android do give more options. If they corrected this handicap we would be facing a very competent cloud management possibility.
