Droplr Undercuts Cloud Storage Competition

By: Mike Fossum - May 11, 2012

For a limited time, cloud storage service Droplr is offering a Pro upgrade of 100 GB of storage for $3 a month, or $30 a year, in a bid to compete with the host of other pay cloud services that have emerged.

Droplr offers a free service of 1 GB with a 25 MB upload limit, which is alright, even though Gmail itself now offers 10 GB for free, and mail attachments can be 25 MB. For users who need more, the Pro plan supports 1 GB files uploads. Three bucks a month for 100 GB is hard to beat – Google Drive pay plans are as follows:

25 GB for $2.49 per month
100 GB for $4.99 per month
1 TB for $49.99 per month

Dropbox on the other hand charges $199.00 per year for 100GB. Still, Dropbox offers folder and device synching features that Droplr does not. Though, $30 isn’t bad for a standard, ad-free, searchable and secure online locker. Droplr also offers custom domains, customized drop views and download statistics. The platform also has an iPhone app.

    I love Droplr, mostly because of the shortcut that automatically flattens a PSD you’re working on and uploads it. It’s incredibly nice to be able to shoot out to clients, and the link is automatically in my clipboard. Genius!
