Ever wanted to share a file, picture, video quickly and easily with little-to-no hassle? Then my friend you are in luck. Allow me to introduce you to minus. This is a cloud storage site that allows you to easily upload and share files. Their iPhone app is nearly as good as the website too. You can easily select files from your camera roll and videos to upload, but hold on a minute folks. The minus app can do much more than that! You can also view a number of different files right from your iPhone too (Word documents, pictures, videos, PowerPoints, Excel, etc). It is also very easy to share the file with someone as well. you can do it through email, twitter or copy the link. It is all pretty slick.

With a free minus account, you get 10GB storage limit (for free!) and you can upload files up to 2GB in size. Pretty awesome! Check out the app for your Mac, PC, browser and the website. To get the app for your iPhone click here.

With my review on Socrative it just makes sense that the iPhone app(s) of the week are the two Socrative apps (the teacher and student clicker). It looks just like the website but there is no need to go to the website it just connects. The apps work great and give you the exact same functionality as the website. In fact they look nearly the same thing as the website. Check out the images below. You can download the Socrative Teacher Clicker here and the Socrative Student Clicker here.
