But there is often confusion between the two services and their features, which we'd like to clear up. So here’s a quick run down of how Dropbox and Digital Pigeon compare.
The primary function and service Dropbox provides is online storage. It’s a great solution for creative professionals as it is relatively inexpensive to store large amounts of data and allows remote access from any device with an internet connection. It has some sharing functionality, but this is quite limited, slow and not altogether reliable - especially for larger files. Dropbox is set by default to throttle upload speeds to that the user doesn’t notice a slowdown in browsing, which is not ideal if you need to get a file to a client quickly.
Digital Pigeon was developed primarily to facilitate high-speed transfer of large media files. This is our key strength through the usage of the powerful Amazon Web Service infrastructure. We get your files from point A to point B in the fastest and most direct route possible.
Dropbox is a great option for an ongoing storage solution, but the slow upload speeds mean it’s not a viable solution for large file transfer. With Digital Pigeon, you can upload files directly from Dropbox and send them straight away, making sure you never miss a deadline. We offer custom branding on download pages, so your recipients will see your own unique appearance and instant media previews for maximum impact.
The biggest advantage with Digital Pigeon is that you don’t have to choose between us and the file storage solutions you already use. We integrate directly with a range of cloud file storage platforms so that you can get the best of both worlds. You can read exactly how Digital Pigeon seamlessly integrates with online storage platforms such as Dropbox and Google Drive.
