If you’re like me, you probably have files spread across a number of different cloud services, so you might be interested to hear about Joukuu, a Windows desktop app that manage files from Box.net, Dropbox and Google Docs.

Once set up to sync with your various cloud file accounts, Joukuu allows you to browse though your files, open documents by double-clicking, and move files between folders and accounts by dragging and dropping them. You can also delete files and create new folders. It works OK, but I have to say that are some shortcomings that limit its usefulness as an “all-in-one” cloud file manager. Firstly, there’s no built-in search feature, which will likely limit its usefulness if you have a large number of files to deal with. Secondly, although you can drag files onto the Joukuu window to send them to the cloud, you can’t drag files from the Joukuu window into other apps (to drop an image file into a document, for example). Finally, you cannot rename or share files. Only the Lite version of Joukuu is currently available, and it’s still in beta, so hopefully those features will be added in either a later or premium version. The developer also hints that later versions may support more cloud services and also become available for the Mac, too.

Joukuu Lite can be downloaded by signing up at the website. It requires the .NET Framework 3.5 or later.

    Interesting. How does this compare to Gladinet or SMEStorage multi-cloud File Managers for Windows ? It seems both of these offerings support more clouds and have more functionality than Joukuu
