Default Mobile Me iDisk users, it is time to change to Gobbler

Apple have announced today that iWeb publishing, MobileMe Gallery, and iDisk will all disappear as the company sunsets its current online service in favour of iCloud, according to a new MobileMe transition guide.

The existing features won’t disappear immediately, though: Apple says that it will continue to host MobileMe websites and Galleries and keep iDisk operational through June 30, 2012.


Thanks Apple. One of the main features and why I choose to pay for Mobile Me is to use iDisk to send approval files to clients. So I am going to have to find another service to help me do this. Makes Gobbler even more attractive!


Although Gobbler is still in beta and currently if you send a file from your Gobbler account via email the recipient needs to have Gobbler on their computer Gobbler are developing a system where the recipient won’t need to have the Gobbler app on their computer. You can see one of several threads on this subject in the Gobbler forum.


So if you haven’t done so already then sign up for a free 50Gb account with Gobbler. But don’t waste any time sign up before June 27th and you will get the 50GB of space. After 27th June when you sign up you will only get 25GB of space on Gobbler’s servers. Once they start charging, those who signed up before June 27th will get to keep their 50GB of space at the base price of around $8 per month. Those who signed up after 27th June will get to keep 25GB of space for same $8 ish a month.


So sign up now and get that extra space.


If you use this link to sign up it will help me get more storage space on Gobbler. - Thank you!

Or for $8.95 a month or less you can get unlimited FTP space from a web host like Dreamhost. Files are accessible to clients through any web browser, no extra software required. Comes with a bunch of other web hosting type of goodies too.

According to Gobbler´s usage terms you can´t use it commercially. How will that work for professional sound people?

yup. And anything that requires my clients to sign up or DL anything is a no go.

Why would they advertise backing up pro tools sessions?

I think they would need to define "commercially" better then.
