    Default Is there a app like Dropbox or is Dropbox the best to use?

    Is there a online storage that's just as good as Dropbox or better? Or is Dropbox the best online storage ? What's y'all opinion ? What do y'all use ? I've been using Dropbox for almost 2 years and I got 75gb storage and I found it it ends soon because I got it from promotions that was going on during that time so I heard once it ends my files delete is that true?

    I believe once your 2 year offer is up, you won't be able to add anything new until you get below your quota. I don't think they'll delete any of your content automatically.

    Here are some popular alternatives -

    Google Drive: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roid.apps.docs
    Box: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...om.box.android
    Copy: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.copy
    SkyDrive: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...osoft.skydrive

    I use dropbox. My big promotion is going to expire as well but I only have about 5 GB used and I got a permanent promotion on my account for 28 GB so.. I'm at about 32 total. Enough for me.. Love dropbox.

    Use the automatic camera upload if you don't... The more photos it automatically uploads from your phone the more space they'll give.

    I use a lot of different ones but I'd have to say DropBox is thebest IMO. Really depends on what you're looking for but I tend to find DropBox going across more platforms in case you were to switch to something else in the future. It also seems to be integrated into more apps than any other.

    I use Dropbox. I got 50GB for purchasing an S4
    Google + and Drive are also good

    I like dropboxes ability to auto upload pics / video from my device when im on wifi. They do have that down rather well. I also use box.com and they have come a long way since their initial start up.
    For me, i store my picson drop box, and use drop box for daily stuff or for cross platform. But for long term or larger files i use box.com.
    I wish i could like google drive but not quite there yet for me..

    I use dropbox for work and home.

    Because I use it at work I have a paid for 100gb account.

    I have tried Google Drive in the past which was ok, but Dropbox seems to be more widely accepted and used by other apps so for that reason alone I prefer it.

    I even have an instance of Dropbox running on one of our remoter linux webservers for backup purposes.

    It just does the job very well and I love it. I have no real need to look elsewhere.

    SugarSync, Mega, Cubby are a couple other options. But, like most, I use Dropbox the most.
