To celebrate the new and improved BT Cloud, a secure storage, back up, and sharing service, we’re giving one reader and a friend the chance to win a hot air balloon ride and an iPad mini 16GB for the winner to capture it on.

You’ll enjoy a ride in the clouds, taking in amazing views and then sharing your pics via the BT Cloud app on your brand new iPad mini.

BT Cloud is free for BT Broadband and Infinity customers and now includes features such as Chromecast compatibility. With BT Cloud you can watch your videos, listen to your music, even with the app closed, and work on documents when you’re out of internet range if you select for offline availability.
