Wuala: The Best Alternative to Dropbox?

If you're looking to get more bang for your buck than what Dropbox offers, Wuala might be worth checking out: their prices are cheaper, they have more "in-between" pricing in terms of storage, and they cover the Windows, OS X, iOS, and Android platforms. Perhaps the coolest thing they've done though is allow you to offer Wuala the use of your hard drive; if you give them 100 GB of space on a your always-on computer (that's an important part), you'll get 70 GB of storage on their servers. Given how cheap local storage is, that seems like a good deal to me! I'm a very happy Dropbox user, but I find myself tempted by this...how about you?

Titanium Media Sync Keeps Folders On The Same Page

"Android: If you've been unhappy with the way Dropbox's mobile app only uploads files manually, you'll want to check out Titanium Media Sync, which will constantly sync folders from your phone to Dropbox, just like Dropbox does on the desktop."

Don't get me wrong - the Android Dropbox client is great. Only problem is that I can't actually synchronize my folders - just download from my dropbox. Titanium Media Sync, from the same source as the awesome Titanium Backup, will sync these for you - which means even if you lose your SD card / phone, you can still have copies of everything you need safely in Dropbox! Well worth the ~$3 pricetag!

DropSpace Adds Dropbox Sync To Your Android Device

"The official Dropbox application for Android allows you to pick files from your phone's SD card to be uploaded to your remote Dropbox directory and vice versa. However, the files you select aren't synced to their transferred (uploaded or downloaded) counterparts."

I really can't decide if this is something I want or not. When the official Dropbox app was released for Android I was fairly relieved that it didn't sync. There is way more crap in my Dropbox than I would ever need on my phone. DropSpace, however, takes a nice approach to "syncing" your files to and from Dropbox. DropSpace allows you to map files and folder on your SD card to any file or folder stored in your Dropbox account. In other words, it doesn't just mirror your file system both places. I like this very much and I really doubt that if the official Dropbox app ever adds syncing that it will work this way. So I can sync the contents of /mnt/sdcard/DCIM/Camera on my phone to /Photos/Mobile on Dropbox. This I like. :) Any of you Dropbox users out there think that DropSpace is something you would use?
