So, I’m on a roll for cloud apps today, so I might as well share this next one.
Welcome to ‘MyShoeBox‘
HEY, they’re Canadian! Be patriotic folk!
Similar to Google+ Instant Upload, or Minus, this is a service to backup your photos from your phone. I can’t tell you how important this is. In fact it’s such an important feature I recommend people to sign up for G+ for just this reason.
Problem with G+ IU is that it uploads only a portion of the true resolution. For example, my camera on my phone is an 8MP and shoots 3264×2448… whereas the IU version on G+ is 1536×2048. Good enough for web viewing, posting on blogs, but if I want real ‘backup’ and print them later on… well this won’t cut it for that reason.
Now, when you dive into it, it works like it should, the navigation is simple as well. A great ‘cloud’ for your photos. I love having that third back up (one on phone, one on computer, another in the cloud).
Sure, the free version only saves a ‘screen resolution’, but for $5/month you’ll get full resolution. $60 a year for ‘peace of mind’. Plus … here’s the awesome part — it’s UNLIMITED SPACE. With other services you’d pay for (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc..) you’d eventually reach a maximum.
With phone cameras and DSLRs climbing higher and higher in resolution, the ceiling is a little easier to hit these days. Remember when a 1GB drive was AWESOME and ALL THE SPACE YOU NEEDED? Keep that in mind.
I’ve updated our database for the cloud options, so check it out and compare (see below).
