Alternatives to Drop.io

Alternatives to Drop.io

I miss drop.io – it was a service that was one of the best group file sharing sites. I had used it for a large conference with about 300 users and it was pretty stable. Not even dropbox competed with the ease and interface drop.io had for groups. Then facebook bought drop.io and it was gone. Just like that. I found some great alternatives. They’re new and while they are not perfect popularity will help them along, here they are:

Alternatives to Drop.io

  1. http://ge.tt/
  2. http://boxify.me/
  3. http://folders.io

The first one boxify has potential but needs user-control or some kind of ownership by the initial creator, once it does it’ll be an almost drop.io replicate. Folders.io is ok, but doesn’t have the instant creation of grouped files but allows you to create a folder. It looks like Microsoft’s skydrive but each folder and file is attached to your main account url. Not bad give it a try.
