Cornwall-based MacMate has launched a free version of its cloud storage service for Mac users.
The new 10GB disk version pits its service directly with other popular cloud services such as Dropbox and Google Drive.
CEO Gary Hall said: “We’ve been building towards a globally-available free version since we launched MacMate last year and now have a something we think is much better and more robust than other cloud services.
“It now has all of the features people loved in MobileMe – like iWeb publishing – but brought right up to date. MacMate disk not only just works, it works really well and we hope the free version will demonstrate that.”
