Changes Coming to Droplr

Josh Bryant and Levi Nunnink, cofounders of Droplr:

Next week we will release some exciting new features to Droplr that we’ve been working on for a long time and that many of you have been asking us for. At that time, we will be discontinuing our free accounts. All current free accounts and new sign ups will be placed on a 30-day trial. At the end of 30 days, you’ll be asked to pay for a Droplr subscription if you’d like to continue using it. If you don’t want to pay, you won’t be able to upload any more files, but none of your existing data will be deleted, and all of your links will continue to work.

Sounds fair to me. It appears that existing customers will be grandfathered in at their current rate. I couldn’t be happier with my Droplr Pro subscription, and it appears that the company has much bigger plans than basic file hosting. It will be exciting to see that journey unfold, and I’m pleased to contribute a small part towards it.
