Interest in cloud file storage and sharing solution Dropbox is booming. The online service has grown from 4 million users in 2010 to 25 million users and 200 million files now saved daily. More than 1 million files – which can include documents, photos, videos, music, movies and more – are presently being uploaded every five minutes.
Offering 2GB of Internet storage space free to smartphone, tablet and computer users, or up to 100GB with a paid subscription, the service lets you store and share files, accessible on demand from any locale. Data can also be synchronized across multiple devices, allowing you to not only warehouse and backup data remotely but also maintain a single file library across several gadgets and effectively collaborate on group projects.
Numerous apps and online file sharing services from Box.net to Drop.io and SugarSync make group collaboration, data backup and instant access to text documents and multimedia available. Among the more lauded cloud computing services for Macs, PCs and Android, Apple or BlackBerry devices, though, Dropbox continues to remain a critical favorite for its intuitiveness and versatility.
