Octonius: A File Browser for Dropbox, Evernote, and Google Drive in One

octoniousUsers of Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, and general file-sharers often find themselves shuffling through various apps just to access shared-files. There are a lot of ways to manage this, and now, there’s a new way – Octonio.us. It’s a clean, modern app that allows users to access all of their variously shared files using only one platform.

The service comes with a month of free subscription, after that you’ll have to pay $1.99 each month, or a discounted rate of $11.99 per year. That’s not a bad price for file-sharing with no ads. It’s perfect for freelancers like myself, who appreciate good design and convenience.
