Copy is a "storage in the cloud" option I'm quickly falling in love with!

Copy is almost exactly like Dropbox {read my post about DB by clicking HERE}, but you get more free space as soon as you sign up. Like I said before, if I wasn't already so invested in Dropbox, Copy would probably be my favorite "storage in the cloud" option right now.

  • 15 GB of storage for free when you sign up
  • Earn 5 GB of extra, free storage for yourself and whomever you invite if they use your referral link. {Supposedly, this offer runs for a limited time only, in an effort to celebrate Copy's big release. So jump on this while you can!}
  • Free iOS apps for your mobile devices
  • Ability to share folders or documents with others
  • Ability to customize how others see your documents {can specify if you want those people to be able to edit your files or just view them}
  • If you install Copy on your computer and work from within its folder, Copy will save and sync your files instantaneously so you never have to worry about uploading the latest file
  • Ability to pay for more storage {250 or 500 GB} if you ever need it {Prices start at $9.99 a month.} 
  • When you share a folder with someone else, you split the "cost" of the storage you're using. For instance, if you are sharing a folder that is 12 MB of total space with 3 other people {4 people total}, you each are only "charged" for 3 MB of space. Miraculously, Copy thinks that is the only fair way to do it! Otherwise, they say, it's like going out to dinner with your friends and everyone having to pay for the entire bill. I love this generosity!

Ideas for Use:

For ideas on how to use Copy to make your life easier, check out the ideas I wrote in my Dropbox post.

I'm working on a series of video tutorials that will show you how to use Copy. When I finish the videos, I'll make sure to post the link below so that you can access them.

If you are prompted for a password, put in our school's mascot (plural form).
