Mockup: File browser with cloud integration

There are many cloud syncronization services now (Dropbox, Ubuntu One, Google Drive, etc), but each of them implements it in a different way. This would be a unification of cloud services.

What I suggest is including the synced folder in a special category in the sidebar (this file browser is elementary OS “Files”), with special file properties (e.g. “Owner” would correspond to the service owner, not to the system).

It could also include an indication of space used, but I'm not sure where to display it.

That's a pretty cool idea. You should make a Blueprint for Files here: [link]

I love this idea. Every service has it`s own way to sync files and it can get confusing when you have alot of files to share. This is one of the most original and practical idea i've seen for those cloud services.
