Cloud Recommendation


I am by no means a power user but I would like to use a cloud service, primarily for two reasons: (1) access to files from my phone; and (2) auto backup. Looking for recommendations.

I have looked at things like Evernote but they're not quite a fit. As an example, I use CherryTree throughout the day and I would like to be able to do that from my laptop or my phone. A small amount of Libre Office. Email isn't an issue because I already use a webmail service provided by my ISP. Thanks.

Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 3.2.7

Personally I like Google and the various apps that all tie in with Drive. I don't need hierarchical storage / sorting of my daily notes so Keep works just great for me.

@TenTenths: Thanks for the response. One of the principal reasons that I migrated to Linux in the first place was to escape, as much as possible, the tentacles of the Microsofts, Apples and Googles of this world.

Were it not so, I would still be happily using MS OneNote, which I consider to be an exceptional product. It may not have the deep layer search ability of Evernote but otherwise IMO it blows the doors off all the competition.

I don't understand why Libre Office is so late getting to the party in the cloud with a OneNote equivalent.

Google Drive doesn't even have a Drive a Linux port. I use Dropbox, though there have been mishaps in the past. Other than that, since I own my own domain, I've found it useful to upload to that. Thunar and other file browsers can connect to FTP, making moving files easy.
