Dropbox rival touts 50GB free cloud storage for iOS fans

More file space in cyberspace

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Cloud storage provider Box.net has unveiled an unmissable offer for iOS-heads, giving users heaps of free storage - ten times the amount Apple chucks in for nowt with iCloud.

Any punter with a free Box Personal account on an iOS device can opt in for 50GB of free storage to keep for eternity. Just remember to write the password in your will, so it can be passed down when you kick the bucket.

The Box.net for iOS is completely free. Download the Box app here, then get ready to sign up tomorrow for your complimentary cloud-space. The promotion is set to run for 50 days only, so you'd better get cracking.

The minute you've received your free space, you can use it on any device too, as it isn't limited to just iOS hardware.

While Airplay wireless streaming of photos, videos and other multimedia is possible, the Personal version has just a 1GB file-size limit. This can be upped to 2GB, should you fork out for the Business or Enterprise versions, though.

Rival companies offer much less when it comes to free storage. The most popular of which, Dropbox, throws out 2GB of space before customers have to reach for their wonga. ®
