Dropbox – share files, not hassle

August 3, 2010

Put this one in the categories of “more productive” and “simple solutions”: Dropbox is an application that allows file shares and syncing over all the major platforms: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, the iPhone, the iPad, Android plus access to all your documents through the Web. You can store up to 2 gigabytes of data free with more storage at very reasonable prices. Below is a useful description of the application from the company:

Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they’ll be instantly available on any of your other computers that you’ve installed Dropbox on (Windows, Mac, and Linux too!) Because a copy of your files are stored on Dropbox’s secure servers, you can also access them from any computer or mobile device using the Dropbox website.

I was hesistant to try Dropbox initially because it seemed like just another web storage solution amidst a sea of solutions. However, I rapidly discovered that Dropbox was simple, reliable and, of course, priced right (free for 2 gb of storage or less. If you have not, give it a try when you have a chance, there is no cost risk!

  1. Thank you, I appreciate the encouraging words!

  2. You should really think about expanding this blog into a major player in this niche. You obviously have a good grasp of the areas everyone is searching for on this website anyways and you could potentially even earn a dollar or three off of some ads. I would dive into following recent headlines and increasing the amount of posts you put up and I guarantee you’d begin getting some great traffic in the near future. Just a thought, good luck in whatever you do!
