Create animated videos and presentations with Powtoon

It’s free and it’s awesome

PowToon is a company wthat sells cloud-based software for creating animated presentations and animated explainer videos.

It is easy to get going quickly and great fun. You can use it for free, just the videos have a “Created by Powtoon” outro on them, and the selection of themes and images is less than for paid versions, but there are still plenty to use to make a good video or presentation

Edu Powtoon is really really cheap – from $1 per month for students, $2 a month for teachers and only $8 a month for a whole classroom! That is a really sweet deal.

 

Why not try it for yourself – start off free – it might be all you ever need.

And don’t think it’s not free because it’s cheap and nasty because it isn’t.  It’s actually a very high quality product and I use it myself – this is free because the creators are wanting to help people get traffic to their sites and offers...

..

Let’s face it, we were all told it was easy to do this interent martketing thing, right? NOT TRUE – some parts of the process might be easy for some people and other parts of it might be easy for others, but getting enough quality traffic to help with rankings and make sales is NOT EASY AT ALL!YouTube Marketing Blunders This free software will help with that.

PLUS Free Marketing report

And as an added bonus, if you pick up the free software from one of the links in the email, you’ll get as an added bonus a free report called YouTube Marketing Blunders. It’s not a longwinded report, but it contains a lot of useful information about how to make better use of YouTube and other video platforms in your marketing.

“Dropbox Just Changed Everything About How You Use Apps” says Kyle Wagner from Gizmodo

It’s not just syncing your files and folders anymore. It’s trying to sync literally everything on your phone, tablet, and computer. Game saves, settings, contacts, notes—all of it, and on any phone or tablet you have.

Kyle goes on to say that Dropbox is moving forward with what is calls Datastores. a new API that will power third party apps, enabling all developers to sync their apps over the cloud.

At the moment, we have apps that are only relevant for certain systems e.g. separate apps are needed for iphone/ipad and android with no way to interact; is that about to change?   Click to see the full article.

Cloud Storage

Until this happens, what cloud storage / backup services can we use for free. How do Dropbox,  iCloud, SkyDrive, Google Drive compare at the moment?

Dropbox

From dropbox.com, this has been a popular choice for quite some time (dropbox is often the first thing that comes to mind for those who have used cloud storage for some time).

SkyDrive

From Microsoft, Skydrive has also been around for some time too and although it comes with more free storage than Dropbox, it initially lacked some of the features (and the 25GB of free storage initially offered has been reduced to 7GB, still a generous amount for free!).

iCloud

More geared to apple users, iCloud is an almost automatic choice as it allows users to seamlessly backup all their iOS devices to the cloud and sync photos & documents between all their apple devices. 4GB free but only for photos, you need is a paid version for documents.

Google Drive

From Google (of course) and for everybody (you do need a google account); also very easy to use, letting you store and access your files anywhere, on the web, your HDD or on the go and each is updated when online.

Below is a summary of features for the Big Four

[table id=1 /]

I use Dropbox and GoogleDrive mostly as I’ve had accounts for years, but  there are many other choices as well as the offerings from the biggest companies. I recently tried & reviewed Copy.com (see here trishfindlay.com/free-data-storage-copy/) and so far have found it to be very easy to use and reliable.

Here are a few of these others – a browser search will give you more information.
Justcloud
Zipcloud
myPCBackup
Sugarsync
Copy
Backup Genie
SOS Online Backup
IBackup
Carbonite
Mozy
LiveDrive
