There's a new free cloud service out there, and it's perfect for attorneys who are addicted to their smartphones.
Pogoplug Cloud is providing 5 GB of free cloud storage, which can be tied to your mobile phone.
The company is heading into a market that is already inundated with cloud storage options. There's Apple's iCloud, then Amazon's cloud service, Dropbox, Box, and more. But Pogoplug is a reputable company according to MSNBC - so this latest cloud storage option may be something worth your consideration. There's nothing wrong with getting more free storage space.
In order to sign up, simply use your smartphone or tablet to download and register a new account. The Pogoplug Mobile application is available through both the Apple App Store and the Android Market.
You'll be able to enjoy 5 GB of free storage, but you can purchase additional storage space. The fees are $10/month for 50 GB, or $20/month for 100 GB.
What's interesting about Pogoplug - which may set it apart from some of its competitors - is the option to expand your cloud storage to your heart's desire.
You can expand your cloud storage as much as you want for a one-time fee if you purchase one of Pogoplug's hardware devices. The devices are priced at either $49.95 or $79.95. You plug in your own storage device and voila - your own cloud network with as much storage as you'd like is created.
This option can be useful for attorneys who want to be able to expand their storage and host their own cloud without tacking on expensive monthly fees.
And Pogoplug's cloud service will also allow users to do what you'd most likely be using cloud storage to do: sync devices and share documents as well as other important files.
