“For purely personal reasons I’ve chosen to abandon Dropbox,” Christopher Breen writes for Macworld. “But that doesn’t mean my desire to share files with others has likewise vanished. I need an alternative that includes many of the things offered by Dropbox.”
“Of course that includes free storage as well as the ability to share files with others. And then there’s the extent to which the service is supported by apps and platforms,” Breen writes. “One of Dropbox’s clear advantages is that a large number of iOS apps hook directly into it. If an app has file sharing capabilities, there’s a good chance that Dropbox is one of its share options.”
“Thankfully, Dropbox, though popular, isn’t the only game in town. Microsoft’s OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive), Google Drive, SugarSync, and Box.com also offer free storage and file sharing features,” Breen writes. “I took a gander at each one to compare not only the kind of storage offered for free, but the ease with which you can share files with others.”
