In the last weeks we are living a moment in which the platforms storage in the cloud, try to maximize their services. The first step was carried out by the Microsoft - OneDrive - Going from the free 25 Gb (in my case 40 Gb) to only 5 Gb, unless you prefer to go through the box.
Recently, Dropbox changes plans: it will stop providing "automatic photo upload" service, unless you have the desktop version installed.
I use Dropbox on Mac due to its integration in the upper part of the desktop, with the possibility of: see if it is updating, the latest updates or additions and shortcuts to the folders of the Mac or also to the web version (files I don't sync are only on the web).
I value above all that it is a full service: it is cross-platform, it works well, and I can say that it is the most widespread, since many despite having an account of gmail o Hotmail, are unaware of their cloud service, giving preference to dropbox. In addition, with increasing frequency, it improves and implements its application with new features, both of its own making, and by adapting new features from the competition. Perhaps he is one of the pioneers and out of deference I owe him that, unless it does not meet my expectations, I want to continue using it.
Does Dropbox want to start charging for the service, once a majority of us use it? Not at the beginning. Explain what, You don't want accounts full of "nonsensical" photos and you prefer to orient the application in a more professional way. On this occasion, proposes to improve document capture, so that they interact with Office documents (only consult them on the web) and in turn these can be saved in their own application. This prevents your competitors: Drive (Gmail), OneDrive (Microsoft) or our iCloud, from beating you when it comes to editing documents, without having to leave the application. Therefore, it is intended to be a service platform.
Finally, iCloud , I use it in its paid version: € 1 / month - 50 Gb. for the majority of photos synchronization ... but I will comment on this in another article.
What cloud platform do you currently use?
