iOS users, if you haven’t got your free 50GB from Box.net yet, hurry up and do so. A couple of weeks ago, Box.net announced that any iOS user that logs into the Box app from an iOS device will get 50GB of storage, for life. The promotion will only last 50 days, and about 14 of those have already passed, so not much time left for getting this hefty amount of free storage.
Box.net is a cloud content management platform, similar to Dropbox, which lets you store, access and share content online and across devices. The company does offer a free option, which usually includes only 5GB of storage, with a 25MB limit on file size upload.
Here is what you have to do to get a free 50GB with Box.net:
- Download the Box app for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and install it.
- Log into your Box account from the app, or register for a new one from within the app.
And that’s it. After logging in you should see a message informing you about your free 50GB. On top of the free storage, you will also get an increased file size limit for uploads: 100MB instead of 25MB.
Will you create a Box.net account just because of this promotion? Or do you prefer other solutions and will not be tempted by this?
