Hot off the heels of Apple’s iCloud launch, Box.net, a cloud storage service similar to the popular Dropbox, is now offering a lifetime upgrade of their free account from 5GB to a whopping 50GB for storing and sharing documents and files. To take advantage of this amazing promo, simply follow these steps:
- Visit the app store and download the 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
It normally costs $19.99/yr on Box.net to upgrade to 50GB usage, so needless to say, if you have lots of files you’d like to store in the cloud, this is one deal you don’t want to miss out on (offer ends Dec 2nd, 2012). Also of note, with the recent app update, you can now use AirPlay to stream photos, videos, presentations and more to an Apple TV.
