Cloupload is a Beautiful and Fully Functional CloudApp Client for Android
If you’re a Mac OS X user who frequently uploads screenshots, small media, and data files to share with others, you’re probably well aware of the online file sharing service CloudApp. Available as both a native app via the Mac App Store as well as an online service, CloudApp is great for quick transfers of screenshots, bookmarks, copied text, audio, video, and more.
Although it doesn’t offer nearly the same capacity or size limits of other online storage sites, CloudApp makes it incredibly easy to upload and share a screenshot on OS X, with just a single command (Shift + CMD + 5). But unfortunately, while there are quite a few Android clients available, not one is both fully featured and well polished. Luckily, XDA Forum Member bluefirex created Cloupload for CloudApp.
Cloupload allows you to access all of your CloudApp files with ease. For images, it gives you full screen (immersive mode) previews. It also gives you audio and text previews for compatible file types, as well as the ability to upload files, rename, and delete files.The app also allows users to upload bookmarks directly and tasteful animations to add to the sense of polish.

Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
