When I wrote yesterday’s post on Dropbox, I was already aware of SugarSync (http://www.sugarsync.com), another online file storage application.
I had done some research on the two applications, to see which one was better, and it seemed that actually, SugarSync was the better of the two. They already have widgets for mobile phones (BB and IPhone), whereas DropBox releases an IPhone widget today (thanks, @cecilialu!). For more information, check out this comparison of the two by ReviewSaurus.
However, the focus of this week’s blog posts are websites or technology that can make your life easier, and are free, and my impression of SugarSync was that there was a 30-day free trial, and then they had plans that started at around $5/month, if you liked the service. So, I didn’t include it, and told you about Dropbox instead.
Turns out SugarSync also has a free, 2GB “lite” version. That information is simply not well publicised on the site. Accidentally or on purpose… who knows.
To access the free 2 GB of storage, go to the pricing page, and scroll down to the lower right-hand corner.
Special thanks to @dloehr for putting me on the right path with that one!
I’d love to hear your comments. Are you already using one of the platforms? How do you like it? What do you use it for?
