[Android app] iDrive offers 100GB of storage for 99 cents per year


iDrive for AndroidGoogle and Microsoft have been competing over the past weeks in the cloud storage space, aiming to trump one another with their storage pricing. However it looks like iDrive may have a solution that can trump both of them. iDrive markets itself as a cloud backup solution, and it has just launched a new deal specifically for Android users that will get you 100GB storage for just 99 cents per year.

For that price, Android users will get 50GB of storage for backing up photos, videos, apps, contacts, call logs, and anything you might have on your SD card; and, you'll also get 50GB for file syncing across devices. The Sync option is new and is really why this deal exists. The feature has just been added to the app with an update that went live today, and activating Sync is what gets you to the 100GB mark. It works the same as something like Dropbox in syncing files across devices through the cloud.

You can download iDrive for Android directly on your device through the Google Play Store or using the following link

All data on iDrive is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption, and you can even add an encryption key to your data if you are really security conscious. If you just want to try out the app, you'll get 5.5GB of storage for free (technically 5GB, but you get another 500MB for installing the app), and another 5.5GB for Sync when you activate. Then, if you want to upgrade, it's just 99 cents per year to jump up to the 50/50 plan, and that price is guaranteed for life.

The deal is limited to Android users, but if you have an existing plan started on an iOS device, you can carry over your data.
