DropShots was created in 2009. It was based on the founder’s mission to improve interaction and strengthen the emotional bond that forms between friends and family through advanced technology. Such a noble cause would logically turn to digital photographs and videos, which are essentially digital memories, as a way of keeping in touch and sharing important events with those who want to remember them. To encourage this sentiment, DropShots was designed to be easy to learn and use by just about anyone, even those who have little to no experience on the internet or computers in general.
DropShots gives users a way to share their digital memories through video and photographs uploaded to the internet. There are many other applications that can do this, but few offer as many controls as DropShots. The site allows users to password protect their files and share them with close friends and family members.
The DropShots website welcomes visitors with full color examples of photographs and a lot of information. The user is intimidated by all the content, but the account pages are better organized.
DropShots makes it easy for newcomers to sign up for an account by placing the registration form right on the homepage. The short form can be found along the right hand column of the website. The form requires a name, email address, username and password. After entering the information, the user can click the yellow “Sign Up” button to submit the form. Next, the user must choose between two membership plans. After selecting their desired membership plan, the user is given a number of options, including Outlook, Gmail, Hotmail and AOL mail, to begin inviting friends and family to DropShots.
DropShots provides its users with two affordable membership plans. The first is a free plan. This membership includes no advertisements, up to 500 photographs, up to 20 videos, a two minute video limit and password protection features. The paid membership is the Premium plan which costs around $5 per month. This plan upgrades to include unlimited photo uploads, unlimited video uploads, unlimited bandwidth use, a 10 minute video limit, unlimited storage space, the ability to add larger and better quality videos and photographs and premium customer support.
