Best Free Cloud Services That Sync Between the BlackBerry PlayBook, BlackBerry Smartphone, and PC

Emailing documents or pictures used to be the only option that people would have to share files, the negative part of this was that there was no simple way for a document to be updated, and users were at the mercy of size limits that could be emailed. The future of computing has moved towards cloud based services, which allows users to store files in a central cloud server, where these files are accessible anywhere by anyone that is permitted access.  Users can access these files, and collaborate with others on documents or projects on either a PC, Mac, tablet or phone. The BlackBerry PlayBook is an ideal device to take advantage of cloud based services, due to it’s high security features, (such as full device encryption with update to the OS 2.1) ease of use, portability, and rich native features such as Docs to Go.  BlackBerry Smartphones also have these features, so all files are easily edited safely and securely without the need to store these documents on the device. The one issue that users may find with the PlayBook or BlackBerry phone, is that several available apps only enable sharing of files to work on one or two devices, such as PC to phone, PC to PlayBook or PlayBook to Phone via BlackBerry Bridge.  This also does not allow for collaboration, as those files are still accessible only on the devices hard drives.
