Thanks to DEN Guru, Dean Mantz, and the Weekly Update from the Discovery Educator Network (DEN), I was reminded of the Box.net cloud storage site. Similar to the features of DropBox*, SugarSync* or Windows Skydrive, Box.net allows users to store files online and access them any time, anywhere, and on multiple devices.
As evidenced by the overwhelming crowds during past iPhone and iPad launches, it’s clear that our lives revolve around mobile. That’s why we’re happy to announce that we’re giving away 50 GB of free storage to anyone who uses a Box Personal account on an iOS device. That’s right, it’s 50 GB in the cloud completely free, forever. Your 50 GB of storage isn’t just limited to your mobile device – you get it anywhere you use your Box account, like on your laptop at home or your desktop at the office.
This promotion starts at midnight tonight and runs for only 50 days, so get your free space in the cloud by following these steps:
- Visit the app store and download the Box app for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
- Log in to your account or register for a new one directly from the app
- Start sharing and collaborating in the cloud
- (optional but recommended) Tell the world how you’ll use your 50 GB with the hashtag #Box50GB
Once you download the app, you need to login using the app and then your account will be credited with the 50GB storage space. You can download an app to access your Box.net on a variety of devices including the iPad/iPhone/iPod/iTouch, Android/Android Tablet, Blackberry, PlayBook, and TouchPad Tablet to view/edit your files stored online. Thanks Dean, the DEN and Twitter for sharing this offer!
