Rudy Huyn releases CloudSix for Dropbox Windows Phone app
Rudy Huyn is the best known individual developer in the Windows Phone ecosystem, and for good reason. His various apps like 6tag (Instagram), 6snap (Snapchat), and 6sec (Vine) have been so popular that Huyn has started his own development studio 6studio. Now, he has a new app - CloudSix for Dropbox, which shows a couple changes in how Huyn is doing business.

The app offers full access to your Dropbox files at any time. You will be able to automatically upload photos and videos to Dropbox when your phone is charging, and use links to share files from your cloud storage. There is an option to create a "Favorites" list which will save certain files for offline access. And, you'll also be able to set up multiple Dropbox accounts and switch easily without signing out. 

While the app does include Dropbox in the name, Dropbox is just the first step. Huyn is already planning to add support for OneDrive, Google Drive, and; and, Huyn has also created an API for his app which will allow Windows Phone developers to connect their apps to CloudSix and easily send files to those various cloud storage services. 

The app is available for free, but you can pay $1.29 to remove the ads if you want.

This man has meant so much to the WP community that a huge portion of users are not even interested in the official apps, staying loyal to him. He does an amazing job creating solutions that just feel like the Modern UI. Wish him and his new venture nothing but success.

This guy is awesome! I wish he would build a version of Chrome for WP with the same style UI.
