Most of us use Dropbox everyday, from saving files to access on multiple devices or computers to quickly share a screenshot. Some are even using it as a backup service, with the camera upload feature being introduced by dropbox few years ago everyone is using their Dropbox account in the most efficient way possible. The free dropbox space provided is 2GB which is good to being with but not enough.
There are several cloud services out there and as seen recently they are not as lucrative as they used to be. Bitcasa stepped back from Unlimited cloud storage to 1TB and so did Outlook citing abuse by many users. Dropbox has been very consistent throughout, without any issues whatsoever. Not only does it provide an excellent & stable app to use but also has never shut down any feature so far – basically Dropbox is one of the most versatile but really consistent cloud storage service out there.
