Everyone has heard of Dropbox and Google Drive. Fewer have heard of the peer-to-peer browser service called Sharefest.me (I shared my thoughts on Sharefest a few weeks ago), but what about Shared.com?
Shared.com is a new cloud service based out of San Francisco that is actually offering 100GB of free space.
Similar to Sharefest.me, Shared.com makes sharing files as easy as dragging and dropping files.
The free version offers a 2GB file size limit and is supported by ads but for 100GB of free space can you really complain about ads?
If you need unlimited online storage you can upgrade to the Pro Plus plan for $24.95 per month which gives you instant direct downloads, kills the ads and raises the file size limit to 10GB.
CTO, Florian Cervenka attests to how easy it is to use the service:
We are taking additional time to understand the specific needs of our early adopters and making specific changes to accommodate suggestions from our first group of users
Let’s hope this small five person startup takes off; it is certainly heading in the right direction.
Have you had a good experience with shared.com or other free cloud based services? You can let me know in the comments.
