Dropbox vs Amazon Cloud

by Heather on March 30, 2011

I’ve been a fan of Dropbox for a while. It’s a great way to share large files (or lots of files). You get 2GB free and so far that has been more than enough for what I have needed to do which mostly involves transferring music from point A to point B. Dropbox makes getting music from musicians easy and makes sending music to people easy too.

But then Amazon jumped into the mix with their version of cloud computing. It’s shiny and I gave it a test run because you get 5GB free and because they have apps for computers and Android phones, you can listen to your music anywhere. I uploaded some music to Cloud yesterday and it took forever. Then I bought an album I had been wanting (lykke li if you must know) and it put it right in my cloud. Later, I wanted to download the Lykke Li album to my laptop at home and get it into itunes. This is where a GIANT negative came into play. I could not download the entire album at once. I had to click on one song and download it and then click on the next one and so on and so forth and that sucks! There was even a little note when you tried to download multiple files that said basically that feature was not available. Not available? To me, that feature is a pretty big deal and so for that, it’s still Dropbox FTW.
