If you sign up to Google+ you can do this with the Google+ app now. There is an Instant Upload option in the app. This syncs any photos (and videos if you set the option) to an Instant Upload album in Picasa.

I've used PicPush for this purpose - it worked well. Only issue I had was it occasionally pushing an already backed up picture a second time and some random future date. Not that critical of an issue, just wound up with a few duplicate photos in my Picasa account. It supports many common photo services too. $5, but if you download just the free portion of ...

Update: I've gotten Pixelpipe to work with the Stock Camera App. Now every single picture I take with my Droid's camera is automatically uploaded to Picasa & Dropbox through Pixelpip. You can set it up to upload to any number of services. Here's how to get it set up: Go into Pixelpipe Go to Settings Turn on "Enable auto upload for camera", and ...

Here's a possible alternative solution. If you open the Dropbox app, then press your camera button and take a photo, the photo file is automatically added to your Dropbox folder and immediately synced to the cloud. I read about it here: http://lifehacker.com/5713518/send-android-photos-straight-to-dropbox

You can check this e.g. in the Honeycomb User Guide. Basically, it sums up to the following: Android Settings, as WiFi networks incl. passwords, user dictionary, etc. Settings of many Google apps, as e.g. browser favorites Apps downloaded from the Playstore Additionally, app developers can use this API to have their apps data backup'd along -- but only ...

I do not believe this is the way Google Drive works. The app, if I am not mistaken, allows you to view (and edit some Google documents) but maintains them in the cloud. While it does allow you to download them, it saves them to your Download folder for local use only. You can choose photos you've taken from your gallery and upload them to Google Drive, but ...

Google Dashboard is a service for accessing a simple view of the data associated with a Google account. With Dashboard you can also get a list of your Android apps that store data in the Google cloud, the dates of their latest backups, the amount of storage they use, and some additional data such as the date you first registered the device. To access this ...

It's Samsung software, built into the system in certain Samsung phones. Like the Dropbox app, it's a service to automatically upload photos you take on your phone; it connects to your "Samsung account" if you create one. It also integrates with Dropbox to sync photos to the device Gallery; if you have "Camera upload" turned on in Dropbox as well, this ...

Try SugarSync. It's a cloud backup service similar to Dropbox. They have a free 5 GB account as well as cheaper monthly plans than DB. Their Android app can be sycned to auto-upload all photos or sync folders on your SD. I've tried it an it works. I haven't fully tested it but one complaint that I have read is that it doesn't respect deletes on your ...

There's an add-on for Dolphin Browser HD which can sync with Google Bookmarks: Bookmarks to SD. GoMarks for Google Bookmarks is also in Play Store. Do try Xmarks too if you need cloud bookmark sync (not limited to Delicious, Gmarks). It has an Android app as well as Dolphin add-on too. But, its not free on Android.

I don't know about "auto-share", but Picasa is definitely one of my options on the "Share" menu from the Gallery. Additionally, my Picasa albums have been downloaded to my phone. Picasa Web Albums is one of the options to sync under Settings | Accounts & sync | <current Google account>.

Try ClipSync It's an app I have written that will update the clipboard on your PC once it has detected a change in the android clipboard over WiFi. (And vice versa.) So you can do: ctr+c (win) -> long press - paste (android). long press - copy (android) -> ctrl+v (win).

Google DocsDrive allows collaborative editing between phone app and webapp. Updates typically propogate from one to the other within a few seconds, and just appear in the document on the updated device, with markup to show that it came from someone else. I use it for brainstorming sessions with my colleagues on the go, I like it better than SMS/Email ...

Relatively new app I've just heard about: Dropin Uploads photos & videos automatically to your Dropbox whenever you're online. Wanna download photos and videos from your phone? Forget the USB cable! Use Dropin! Dropin uploads photos and videos automatically to your Dropbox whenever you're online. Sign-in with your Dropbox ...

It seems you cannot achieve this on built-in Nook app. Fortunately, you are using two android devices since there are many solutions for reading on android devices. Install Moon + reader under the assistance of Dropbox on your android phone and Nook color. You can also keep the same reading progress in this method. guide

I don't believe that functionality works yet. I have tried to sideload PDFs and plain .txt files and they don't register in "My Library" or under "My Files" and obviously they don't sync between my devices. I also can't find a web interface for loading non-nook files. I did a little searching around a couple months ago and I found a few unsubstantiated ...

I use SMEStorage. I actually use 2 Storage Clouds on it. My home WebDav Server and SkyDrive. My files physically reside on my home WebDAV server and on SkyDrive. I have a phone to SkyDrive folder sync setup through the SMEStorage App for some docs/files. SMEStorage has the ability to encrypt files uploaded to it and then decrypt on the fly from the ...

Google Drive (née Google Docs). Just create a simple document. There's a Google Drive app for Android, of course, but even without the mobile web version works pretty well (which I'd expect you'd use with the iPhone). Windows and Mac can use the desktop browser version of the web app.

If your device is rooted, you might want to take a look at Titanium Backup, which has built-in support for Dropbox, Box and Google drive. As for your "special folder", I'd say you will probably like FTPSyncX -- which allows you automatically sync with Dropbox as well as with your local PC via SSH, FTP, and others. The latter can happen automatically all xx ...

One more thing to keep in mind is privacy: While you mostly have control over your locally stored data, you cannot say the same for Cloud services. For storing personal/sensitive information to the Cloud, you should always consider encryption. A third option is to have your app creating backups on your sd card, and use another app (e.g. FolderSync) ...

Did you take a look at OwnCloud and similar solutions? Not (yet?) as comfortable as dropbox, but open source, runs on Linux (so you can stick with your Linux-mount solution), and it has an Android app. For a quick overview, you might want to first take a look at this Wikipedia article. If that sounds interesting, next source to investigate might be e.g. How ...

There are tons of apps that will allow you to backup images to the cloud in addition to Dropbox. Some are more "aggressive" than others. Google+ Auto-Backup Copy Carbonite Mobile BitTorrent® Sync more...

A very flexible solution for this issue is offered by FolderSync: this app not only allows you to specify which local folders should be synchronized with which remote ones, but also supports a ton of different services, including Dropbox, FTP/SFTP/FTPS, Google Drive/Docs, WebDAV, Ubuntu One, and a bunch of others. I use it myself for Dropbox and SFTP, and am ...

You would have to look at the pros and cons. Pros of Cloud Backup Off site backup (you will keep your data if your house burns down) Cons of Cloud Backup Make take a while to upload all of your data to the server Make take a while to download the data again Pros of Dedicated Backup App Quick (no upload) Quick and easy access (on your SD Card, so ...

I would recommend you to use SanDisk Memory Zone available from Google Play Store. Once you have installed the app, run it and it will scan your entire SD card and the internal memory of your device. After that, choose a cloud storage provider where you would want to backup all the data.

Google Docs actually would be a viable solution. You just need a way to sync local files to and from GDocs. ReadWriteWeb reviewed three such apps. There are surely others.

Haven't tried it as the cloud player's not available in my country yet, but does the trick that makes the normal music player ignore folders work? Try creating a file called .nomedia in the folder that your podcasts are saved into, and see if that makes the Amazon player ignore them.

Mobile Firefox includes support for Firefox Sync, which not only keeps your bookmarks in sync between your mobile device and your desktop Firefox(es), but also supports opening tabs you currently have open in your desktop browsers. I know this isn't exactly what you were asking for (Del.icio.us/GMarks sync), but it works perfectly and makes any other ...

If you want an App for Android that supports the Ubuntu One Cloud, then try ES File Explorer It can be found in the Google Play Store for Free. It's a file manager but has Cloud features as well. Instead of having a different App for each Cloud Service you use (Dropbox, Ubunutu One, SkyDrive, Google Drive, etc.. this rolls em all into one and it ...

SugarSync does this. They specifically market it as a way to keep your photos backed up, but it works for any file/folder. They describe their "Autosync" system in this blog post.
