Droplr Is Going Freemium, iOS and Mac apps Updates in the Pipeline
Good news for all heavy file transferors’ fans, Droplr will start implementing a new business model which allows users to send all the files they want to with a freemium account. Of course, this new offer isn’t all that pretty.
Droplr, file-sharing service, will allow you to exchange all those images but they will expire after a week. In case you want to keep those files for a longer period of time, you have to pay the $9.99 subscription fee monthly. The service previously offered sharing of images for $4.99 monthly but has now announced an increase in its pricing and changes in business strategies.
The Droplr Pro plan will allow users to transfer unlimited files without worrying about the size. It also offers password protected files, custom domains and download pages. The new free tier is a rather expensive option.
Keeping the 10 bucks in specific in mind, Droplr has some ‘big banners’ associated with it, namely Pixar, Adobe, Airbnb and Nike. And these are just the startup companies. The company’s Corporate and Business plans remain the same for now, however the pricing changes will be implemented from tomorrow.
Besides the price changes, Droplr has also introduced a new version of iOS app along with updates to support the new features on the MAC app. It allows users to self-destruct links, speedy GIF settings and it has refurbished the OS X Yosemite-optimized edge. The company reports that updates for iPad and iPhone apps will commence from tomorrow followed by a MAC app update within the week.
