About Cubby

Cubby lets people turn any number of PC or Mac folders into 'cubbies' that can be accessed from other devices, stored in the cloud, and shared with colleagues and friends. Cubby also gives people the option to simply share or sync an unlimited amount of information across their own computers for free, and without ever counting against cloud storage limits. As a result, people have the flexibility to share and access information across their devices without having to worry about creating a new, separate version of their digital life in the cloud.

  • Cubby is still in beta, but it’s already a joy to use. And beta status doesn’t stop us or other reviewers from giving it very high rating. It works the way we expected it to, and its designs for both web and desktop apps are very well-designed, clear, easy to use and user-friendly. Overall, we are very confident that Cubby is ready for serious usage, even in beta, and it will be a serious contender for the crown in syncing and online file storage market.

  • Cubby is an up-and-comer of syncing services, with its choice for unlimited peer-to-peer syncing and super clear interface.

    PROS:

    • Beautiful modern design.
    • Extreme simplicity of setup and use.
    • Peer-to-peer syncing removes storage limits.
    • Syncs any folder on your drive, but also has a master sync folder.
    • Easy sharing.
    • Saves unlimited versions.
    • Well-designed iOS and Android apps.

    CONS:

    • No Web-based document editing.
    • Past versions of files only available from Web interface.
    • A top feature, DirectSync, is Pro only.
    • Whole updated files transferred instead of just changed bits.

  • I hate beta because it can entice developers to keep their product in a constant state of development (I’m looking at you, Google). Even in Cubby’s beta infancy, I believe it is the first true competitor to make a legitimate run on the cloud syncing crown. LogMeIn has a solid user base and they are known for producing a good product at the right price. If they extend that level of quality and product innovation into an already feature robust Cubby, Google Drive will be the least of Dropbox’s problems.

    When it comes to cloud storage, the main question is: how safe is it? Some cloud services provide the additional layer of security. The other offer client-side encryption. Cubby combines two approaches. First, all user files are encrypted using AES algorithm with a key length of 256 bits. Encryption takes place in both directions: transmission from the cloud and transferring the files from your computer. Secondly, this service uses direct sync technology. It means that the user may use the Cubby client only for the synchronization between the devices. The files are not stored on the server. However, this feature is available only for paid customers. The other bonuses of subscription include user-held encryption keys and device wipe (in the case of loss or theft). But the free customers get 5 Gb of disk storage, the opportunity to upload the files of any size and unlimited version history. Note the last: many similar services charge for this feature. With the Cubby client that is available for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS you may share folders and individual files, and sync any folder on your computer. Herewith the download link is created directly to the file and not the download page, that's very handy. As for the folders sharing, there are some limitations. First all users that get access must be registered with the Cubby. Secondly the folder should be synced to the cloud (e.g. not with the direct sync). Paid customers also get the ability to put a password on any folder that is synchronized with Cubby.

    Pros :

    • Good security options.
    • Unlimited file versioning for free customers.
    • Modern interface.
    • Feature-rich mobile apps.
    • Direct sync without the space limits.

    Cons :

    • Only 5 GB of free space.
    • Works very slow, because if the files were changed the whole ones are transferred instead of just changed bits.

    I have to admit, I'm not using Cubby a lot. There is so many competition, that at sometimes, you need to stick to one. Cubby is not very popular, so when you want to share with others, you will get a lot of "I don't have a Cubby account". I know, the answer is "go get one, it's free" but you will receive a "why, I already use ***" So, why Cubby? First, it's by LogMeIn, one of the best cloud company. Second, they give you 1 GB free for each friend you invite, and that's a lot! And Third... you have a real selective sync. Instead of having a root folder, with a subfolder, you create "Cubbies". A Cubby is like a folder. You can share, and sync a Cubby. When you install the desktop client, you will select which Cubby you want to sync. You may want to sync your documents on your personal and professional computer, but maybe sync your personal picture only on your personal computers. Also, maybe your pictures are on your C: drive, but your documents are on your D: drive. With Cubby, you select the Cubby, click sync, and choose the destination folder, for each Cubby. I use it to sync my Outlook signatures, my games save, my apps configurations, etc. You can simply create a Cubby by Dragging and Dropping a folder into Cubby. It may be used to share, or to backup. Unfortunately, storage is pretty expensive. You can have 1 TB for 10$/month from competition while with Cubby, 1 TB will be 40$/month. The Cubby client is pretty big, without a lot of advanced features. They have DirectSync to sync across computers, without the cloud, but only with the paid version. The data is encrypted, and you can add client-side encryption if you really need it!

    Pros :

    • Selective Sync Select destinations individually 1 GB for friend invite From LogMeIn.

    Cons :

    • Not very popular.
    • The client is ugly.
