What Online Services Are Worth Paying For?

We love free stuff, especially free apps and services. But sometimes you need to pony up a little cash to get premium features — and sometimes those features are more than worth the money. We’re curious: Which online services do you pay for?Photo remixed from an original by mattias

After reading Duck Duck Go founder Gabriel Weinberg’s post on online services he pays for, we got to wondering the same thing about you, our readers.

Cloud storage services like Dropbox are one example of a kind of online service many people pay extra for (because they need more space to backup important files). Sometimes, also, you have to pay for the premium service option to get more functionality, like offline notebooks for mobile devices in Evernote. Other online services are more conveniences than necessities, but still worth the cost for many people.

Share which online services you currently pay for and why in the comments. [via Gabriel Weinberg’s Blog]
