Box.net has announced an intriguing promotion that should interest Apple fans. The company is currently offering 50GB of free online storage to anyone with a free Box Personal account on their iOS device.
The 50GB of storage is ten times what Apple’s iCloud service offers users for free, and is being offered free with no strings attached. A comparable amount of storage on DropBox would cost $9.99 per month, and a comparable amount of storage through Apple’s iCloud service would cost $100 per year.
Box.net can be used to store photos, documents, videos, music, or other digital files safely on Box.net’s servers, and files stored there can be accessed anywhere there’s an internet connection. What’s also notable about the service is that Box.net’s free iOS app (link) includes wireless AirPlay streaming of photos, videos, presentations and other types of files you may have stored on their servers, and also fully integrates with Google Docs.
In order to take advantage of this offer, you need only download Box.net’s iOS client (Free, App Store Link) and claim your free storage beginning at 12:01 p.m. pacific tomorrow, October 14th. The promotion will be available for 50 days after it begins tomorrow afternoon.
