Droplr Pro

Droplr has just announced its ‘Pro’ membership option.

I’ve been trying out Pro for a few weeks now as a Beta tester and this is my little review.

Features

For $30 a year (or $3 a month if you don’t want to pay annually) you get:

  • Larger files and increased storage. Files up to 1GB in size and 100GB of storage.
  • No ads. This includes seeing ads on other peoples stuff. (While you’re logged in)
  • Statistics.
  • Private Drops.
  • Customized Drop Views. (Well, three differen’t colours.)
  • Option to use your own domain.

Thoughts

Pro isn’t a key to an unknown Droplr world. It doesn’t transform the experience. The Pro features are just lovely additions to an already great service. I don’t mean this badly. Pro simply embeds itself effortlessly. No fuss or fluff.

One of the main reasons you’ll want to upgrade is for its value for money. For example, its big competitor, CloudApp, has a Pro option that costs $15 a year more and the only features are:

  • Unlimited file uploads a day.
  • Upload files up to 250MB.
  • Option to use your own domain.

Dropbox even comes up short as they charge $200 a year for 100GB (I know Dropbox is a very different service to Droplr). Droplr’s $30 Pro looks amazingly good value in comparison.

Conclusion

If you share stuff online, Droplr, and Droplr Pro is for you.

Honourable mention: the sign up proccess for Pro is amazingly simple. The simpliest I’ve ever encountered.
