We'd love to know what mobile client application you predominantly use to store and synchronize files across devices. Please take the quick poll!
Other (please share as a reply post)
WiFi sync using tools built into my devices or USB sync again using tools in my devices all contained on servers and machines I own and control
No cloud based sync at all. Once I'm away from my base networks and systems I do not sync again until I return.
Re-reading the poll the mobile app that stores files is DEVONThink for most stuff & GoodReader for PDFs.
I still don't have a good solution for LibreOffice files so I convert to PDF to carry them on my devices.

The problem with Dropbox for me was that it didn't even allow me to buy enough storage space.
I wanted to be able to sync my entire reference files so that I could (1) use it as back up, and (2) reliably access any files I needed.
Google Drive offers much higher capacity (i was using 200GB, and recently upgraded to 400GB).
That said, Google Drive's features aren't nearly as nice as Dropbox - dropbox is just incredibly slick. I love the features like simply right clicking on a file on your desktop and getting a public link to it. To do the same sort of thing in Google Drive takes about 5-10 clicks and about 2-3 minutes. Definitely not 'fast and fun'!

Thanks Victoria. Yes I know Dropbox has upgraded, but the timing wasn't good for me: I was already looking for something bigger when Google Drive came along, and if my memory serves me correctly, it took Dropbox about 3 months to catch up (allow more storage). By then I had migrated my system to Google Drive, and honestly I don't regret it. It's not perfect, but it is adequate. Cheers, Nick

Personnaly I sync my files in Evernote this way
Not many people know this feature exists...

I am currently shifting between DropBox and Google Drive. Google Drive can be sychronized by a group but always needs internet connection.
