ZAGREB, Croatia, February 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Those 2 gigabytes that Dropbox and other cloud-based storage solutions provide not enough? Slow bandwidth, annoying ads and sites that just don't work got you down? This week there is relief in sight: Maxxo - a cloud-based storage, secure sharing, and folder sync application, has just launched and is offering 5GB free storage accounts for a limited time.
How limited? "We'll see," says Maxxo CEO Vedran Sisak. "We'd rather not go broke after 2 weeks of only free account sign-ups, but I'm sure that folks with lots of data to store and share, who have been burned by the first generation of cloud-based storage services, will appreciate our application and the speed and ease with which they can share their files."
Maxxo's system was developed around intuitive drag-and-drop functionality. If a user wants to share a file with a friend, or with 20 friends, it's just a matter of a quick drag of the mouse. Sisak continues, "Sharing has never been this simple and straightforward. We like to think of ourselves as cloud-based file sharing, sync, and online backup - for normal people."
The Maxxo application aims to differentiate itself from existing file sharing services which have links that anyone can post anywhere. Maxxo wants to cultivate a community where sharing files is a personal act, between real people - and not a breeding ground for internet piracy. "We have created a platform for you to share files with people you know and trust," says the Maxxo CEO. "We feel that this is the direction online cloud-based storage and file sharing systems should be taking."
"The last thing I want to share," adds Sisak, "is that if you like Maxxo and our services, tell your friends!"
Maxxo is a Croatian cloud-based file sharing, sync and backup application, now available for download, that will allow users to easily sync and share their data with their trusted friends and peers. Sending or sharing large files or a large number of files? With Maxxo, it's as simple as drag and drop. The service offers 5GB free accounts and premium accounts with added data sharing features as well as added storage. File sharing is about to get a whole lot easier.
