pCloud vs Dropbox
When ask what are the best cloud services? Dropbox often ranked 1st while pCloud ranked in the top ten sometimes.

On the contrary, pCloud starts with up to 20GB of FREE storage for photos, videos, documents, music and any small or large file. pCloud is a Swiss company. Although it is not famous as Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. I think it should be considered seriously, the company has a lot to offer, especially for those who are looking for a simple, easy-to-use, free service. pCloud is a good alternative to Dropbox.
