Unite all your cloud storage services with Otixo for Windows Phone

With multiple cloud storage solutions available it can prove rather troublesome keeping track exactly what files are stored on which service. Luckily, this is where the new official Otixo (www.otixo.com) app for Windows Phone comes into play. The app essentially opens up the vast world of online storage for consumers to access numerous services through a single gateway. Think of this are your one shop for all your cloud drive accounts.

The beauty of Otixo is how everything is kept safe through a single login. Much like LastPass (or similar services) for general accounts and security information, Otixo allows users to add multiple services to a single account. Simply log in, add accounts you wish to use and you’re good to go from supported hardware. So which cloud storage solutions are supported by Otixo?

Here’s a quick list:

  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • OneDrive
  • Facebook
  • SugarSync
  • Picasa
  • WebDAV
  • FTP
  • Cubby
  • Huddle
  • Alfresco
  • Amazon S3
  • OwnCloud
  • Dump Truck
  • FilesAnywhere
  • CloudMe
  • UbuntuOne
  • Yandex
  • MyDrive
  • OnlineFileFolders
  • GoDaddy Online
  • Strato
  • 4Shared
  • Digital Bucket
  • Cubby
  • GMX.DE
  • WEB.DE
  • CloudSafe
  • HiDrive
  • Deutsche Telekom Media Center
  • Bitcasa

As well as being able to access individual services and accounts, Otixo also supports copying/moving files from cloud to cloud without using up your data plans (all files transfer through web servers – not for those who wear tin foil helmets). Users can also search across all services with a single entry, which saves literally hours of crawling through login credentials and multiple interfaces.


Personal media is also available, including photos, documents, videos and music. This content can be loaded via the single app, regardless as to which service (or services) you’re accessing. Finally, files can be uploaded to any service connected to the Otixo account, streamlining the experience further.

You can download Otixo from the Windows Phone Store for free (the service does cost money, unfortunately). Thanks, Lance_WPCentral, for the tip!
