Box.com FREE 50GB UPGRADE Promotion

I found this pretty sweet deal a couple days ago and just got around to trying it out. Box lets you store all of your content online, so you can access, manage and share it from anywhere. Out of all the cloud-based storage solutions, Box currently has the highest storage allotment for free profiles at a solid 10GB, with referrals and offers to obtain more space. From January 15th to February 15th, 2014, they are offering an upgrade to 50GB of storage space for free. The coolest part is there is only one catch; you must download and login to their iPhone or iPad app. Seriously, that's it. Not one extra step is required. Considering I have to clean out my Dropbox (I'm currently at 7.8GB) every few months to make way for some random pictures to share, this should prove to be more than enough for most personal projects.

The app itself is pretty slick. There are a lot more options than Dropbox, such as the ability to create, edit and share documents all directly within Box. It is obviously targeted more towards the document and office job crowd. That's ok for those guys, but the biggest drawback of this free version is the file size limit. Media-industry users like ourselves will balk at the 250MB file size limit of Box. It's virtually useless for the transfer of large audio and video files. However, it's great to backup all those production stills of you boarding a plane or standing on the sidelines at a football game. The only file size restrictions that Dropbox has is the size of your storage plan.
