Now that I’ve upgraded to Mountain Lion, and MobileMe has closed, I’ve had to replace my iDisk. For those of you who don’t know, it offered the same functionality as DropBox, and that was the only reason I had not yet started using DropBox. So, I set up a DropBox account over the weekend, and I’m really digging their new user experience. Not only do they provide a tour of their service and friendly instructions, they provide incentives for using them. For example, here is a list of seven actions they want new users to perform.
They check off each one as it is completed, and then they reward you with extra storage space. I wasn’t going to bother taking their tour, and I certainly wouldn’t have sent anyone and invitation, but I ended up doing those things because they were on this list, and I wanted the additional space.
