Windows 8 which was released last year is missing in many official apps like Google Drive, although Dropbox was released few days back. With cloud storage services now becoming extremely popular and offering sync on various devices, you might have accounts with different cloud storage services. It would always be great to have all the cloud storage integrated into one app and this is exactly what Cumulo does.
