If you know anything about online sharing, the term Dropbox may have come up. Dropbox is a file sharing site that offers a free 2GB of storage. We here at iGeekable use Dropbox to share our podcast files, but mainly we use Dropbox’s main competitor Google Drive. Since our site is run off Google Apps and our emails are Gmail hosted, it seemed natural for us to use Google Drive, offering a free 15GB rather than 2GB and with a Docs, Presentation and Spreadsheet editor, it worked out well. I personally pay $1.99 a month for 100GB of Google drive storage on my personal account.
And with Dropbox, I have received a total of 6GB of extra storage, amounting to 8GB total. But with Dropbox’s new competitive pricing, matching Google Drive at $9.99 for 1TB of storage, it seems like the perfect way to store large files that I need others to access. Not to discredit Google Drive, but Dropbox is easier to share with because it doesn’t require the person on the receiving end to have a Dropbox account to download the file.
All in all, I think it was a smart move on Dropbox’s part to drop their price, and I think it will be quickly adopted by users everywhere, including me.
