Ordinarily, we wouldn’t think of comparing ourselves to Dropbox as, when it comes down to it, we offer fundamentally different services. But there is often confusion between the two services and their features, which we'd like to clear up. So here’s a quick rundown of how Dropbox and Digital Pigeon complement one another.
The biggest advantage with Digital Pigeon is that you don’t have to choose between us and the file storage solutions you already use. We integrate directly with a range of cloud file storage platforms so that you can get the best of both worlds. You can read exactly how Digital Pigeon seamlessly integrates with online storage platforms such as Dropbox and Google Drive.
Rather than being an alternative to Dropbox, we see Digital Pigeon and Dropbox working in harmony together.
Large File Sharing
Dropbox is set, by default, to throttle upload speeds so that the user doesn’t notice a slowdown in browsing, which is not ideal if you need to get a file to a client quickly.
Developed primarily to facilitate high-speed transfer of large media files
Has some sharing functionality, but is quite limited, slow and not altogether reliable - especially for larger files
Cloud File Storage
Dropbox’s primary function - they’re the masters of this domain.
Upload files directly from Dropbox and send them straight away, making sure you never miss a deadline
A great, relatively inexpensive solution for creative professionals to store large amounts of data
Digital Pigeon complements Dropbox nicely with cool features, such as custom branding on download pages so your recipients will see your own unique appearance, as well as these workflow tools:
- Instant media previews
- Comments, markup and approvals for any type of multimedia file
Not features offered by Dropbox

In this business, you can spend a lot of time watching files move around. Digital Pigeon minimises that time greatly.

Our business heavily relies on huge amounts of data – we need bullet proof software for file delivery.

It’s all about speed. That’s the main thing… it needs to be reliable and fast. We used to have to wait overnight for files to sync and send… In this business, we don’t have that luxury and it’s lucky we found Digital Pigeon because it’s so much faster than the others.
