Sharing is caring. That’s what I’ve always been taught. Well, if you like to share everything from pictures, to videos and music, there’s a new kid on the block. It’s called Minus and they look to challenge popular file sharing service Dropbox.

Minus first started out as a picture sharing site and I’ve watched as they’ve grown into this behemoth of a service allowing users to store any kind of media, in the cloud, all while providing the most storage space I’ve seen in my internet travels (a full 10GB to start) for absolutely FREE. Yeah, it sounds crazy. I’ve actually been using Minus since its inception (before it was “cool”). Recently they’ve been busy overhauling their website, updating their handier-than-you-would-think Chrome Extension and revamping their official Minus app in the Android Market. They even offer desktop applications for Mac, Windows and Ubuntu.

 

Like Dropbox, if someone already using the service sends you a special link (cough — here — cough) you and that user will both receive extra storage space. But where Dropbox only gives both parties an extra 250MB, Minus offers a bonus 1-freakin’-GB. That’s like 300% more free! I currently only have pictures in my Minus account but with 10GB, I think I may start uploading my most intimate of videos as well.
