Who does’t love free online storage? I’m a big fan of Dropbox and their success of course, has led to others providing similar services.
Box.net is one of them and in the wake of iCloud being released, they are upping the ante on space. Box’s free account usually offers 5GB of space with a limit of 25MB on a file upload. Well, if you go to the App Store and download the Box.net app within the next 48 days, you will get 50GB of free space and your upload limit will be boosted to 100MB.
Getting signed up and the app installed on my iPhone and iPad was quick and easy. If there is one downside, it is that unlike DropBox, Box.net does not have a PC or Mac program to install on a computer. Their main interface is web based. But maybe that will change.
So if you want a good bit of online storage space, go for it. The promotion doesn’t appear on the Box.net website, so it is best just to download the app and sign up then.
