box.net is just like dropbox.
And if you sign up before Dec. 2nd, you get 50gb for storage and sharing, for free, for life.

Download the app for iphone, ipad, android or blackberry first. Create an account through the app and that is how you get your 50gb free.
Then you can access it on your computer or through the app itself...but I think you have to create the account through the app after downloading it to get the 50gb of free storage.

You're welcome.

I just tried this and it only seems to want to give me 5 GB through the app. What the heck?!

I don't have any of those devices. It must be nice to be so rich.

Blackberries aren't that expensive. 2 pints for $4 usually.

A tracfone? You must be a drug dealer.

I use the computer at the library. How do I get this deal? Oh, if it helps I also have access to a cordless phone next door and a pay phone at the gas station.

What?! No! I would never sell drugs.

I'm a terrorist.

Hmmm...I thought I read the deal was good for apps on all devices...but apparently not.
The 50gb deal is only for idevices (ipod touch, ipad, iphone).
But... after you sign up through the idevice, you can access and use your 50gb account on any device or pc.

That's the deal being offered by Box.net: 50GB of online storage for anyone who installs the Box.net app on an iPhone, iPod Touch, or Pad. (Sorry, Android users--not sure why you're being left out.) The app itself is free, as is the Personal account you'll be creating. And if you already have an account, merely signing into it gives you that 50GB bump.
The promotion runs through December 2, but you get to keep the 50GB forever. And that space is available anywhere you use your account, not just on your handset or tablet.
In case you're not familiar with it, Box.net is cloud-storage service not unlike Dropbox and SugarSync. After uploading your various documents, media files, and the like, you can easily access them online, share them with others, stream media to a mobile device, and so on.
There's even a new feature that allows iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users to wirelessly stream Box.net files to an Apple TV.
Now for the bad news: although it's easy to enough to select files and folders to upload to your account, you must do so using a Web interface or your iDevice (which is limited to uploading photos).
There's a Dropbox-like Box Sync client for Windows and Mac, but it's available only to those who purchase Business or Enterprise accounts.
The lack of desktop syncing does limit Box.net's appeal, no doubt about it, but it's hard to complain too much about 50GB of free storage. (OK, I'll complain a little: come on, Box.net, this really limits your appeal!)
What do you think? Is Box.net worth having even without a desktop-sync option? Or is the hassle of having to upload files manually too great?
