Getting Started

Here are the steps to using an app that allows you to connect your own storage account: 👇

  1. Create a remoteStorage account 🔑

    You might be used to signing up ‘with an app’, but here you sign up with a ‘storage provider’ so that you can use the same account with multiple apps.

    • If a friend or administrator has set up an account for you, get the details from them.
    • 5apps is a commercial remoteStorage provider that currently offers free storage accounts.
    • A more extensive list of options can be found on the Servers page.
  2. Connect your storage 🔌

    Once you create an account, return to the app to ‘connect your storage’, or explore some of the other remoteStorage-compatible apps.
