CloudOn merging with Dropbox

In a midnight press release, CloudOn announced they are merging with DropBox.

CloudOn was one of the earlier iPad apps for cloud storage, but it never really caught on like their competitors did. In the press release, CloudOn stated they are starting off 2015 by “joining the Dropbox team”.

The bad news is that effective immediately, no new accounts can be created on CloudOn, and on March 15th, “the CloudOn app and service will no longer be available.”

In an email sent to existing CloudOn subscribers there are two links intended for “any inconvenience caused by the discontinuation of our service”. One link is for activating an additional 1GB to DropBox storage for free, and another link is for 3 months free and 1 TB of space for DropBox pro accounts.

I chose the additional 1GB option and immediately saw my existing DropBox storage space increase.

CloudOn Dropbox Boost


Thanks CloudOn!
