If you are looking for Dropbox invites just leave a comment on this post with your email id and I will send you an invite. Please spread the word by digging the story here
We have all been waiting for GDrive to launch for years now. But it looks like GDrive is all set to become vaporware with the launch of the public beta of Dropbox today. Luckily I managed to get an invite and I’ve been playing around with Dropbox for the past hour and I am completely bowled over by its simplicity and functionality.
Only yesterday I wrote about Foldershare, but Dropbox beats Foldershare in all aspects. Every other online storage solution has had its own limitations. Dropbox gives them a hard punch and comes out on top.
Here are a few things that made me impressed :
- Dropbox is super fast. Uploads and Sync are done in a snap.
- The Interface is simple and easy to use and it is tightly integrated into your Operating System. I’m currently running Dropbox on my Hackintosh and Windows Vista PC and it works like a charm.
- Sync is the main feature. You can sync files between multiple computers and share stuff between different users.
- Everything you store in Dropbox is stored in an online account and the storage limit is capped to a maximum of 5GB.
- In case you accidentally edit a file you can always revert back to previous version. Think SVN for home users!
I have invites available, so if you want to try out Dropbox leave a comment in this post and spread the word.
I’m so sorry I forgot to Link up to Tony. Kudos to him for finding this back door to get Dropbox invites..
Update : Sorry guys the invites are now over. I just received this email from Drew Houston the CEO of Dropbox :
first, thanks for the enthusiasm and inviting people we really
we will be tightening the reins though in an hour or two and putting a 5
person limit on invites — just wanted to let you know so that we didn’t
pull the rug out from under you and so that you can update blog posts,
etc. the invites you’ve already given out won’t be affected.
we will be letting in more people as soon as we can
Isn’t that sad, this was fun while it lasted. I’ve sent out more than 400 invites and I’m happy that I have been able to get invites for so many people. Well its just that dailyApps gave out just as many invites as Techcrunch and GigaOm put together gave. So dailyApps trumps the big guys right? I’ve closed the comments on this post, which means no more invites. Please subscribe to the RSS Feed to receive a lot more in the future.
