Dropbox's review

    Published: 2011-05-05, by .

    File storage and sharing across devices has never been smoother

    • Easy uploading system
    • 2 Gb free storage
    • Integration into sharing options of the devices
    • Lack of integration with other cloud storage services

    "Cloud storage, all boxed up"

    Dropbox has already exists as a web-based service, but thanks to its Android app, it takes a new dimension: you may backup all the data you keep in your Android uploading it to the cloud. Contacts, photos, sms, apps,... Even if you lose your device, your data will remain safe in the cloud.

    The first step you need to take is to create an account in Dropbox. You may do it from the app installed in your Android or by getting into You will get 2 Gb storage for free for registering and 250 Mb extra for each friend you invite to join Dropbox (once he/she sign up). There’s also a paid version with extra storage (9.99$/month for 50 Gb or 19.99$/month for 100 Gb). Then you may create as many folders as you want, setting them as public (everyone can see its content), private (you are the only user who can see its content) or shared (you and whoever you allow to can see its content). Since that moment you will be able to upload by file sync all your data, no matters the format and the size (without exceeding the storage limit). A Dropbox icon will get integrated in the file sharing options of your Android.

    For example, after taking a picture, you may select “Menu” and then “Share” and the Dropbox icon will appear in the list of sharing apps (next to messaging, e-mail, Facebook, and the rest). If you select Dropbox, that picture will be uploaded to the folder we select in our Dropbox account. That easy, that useful! You will have this picture and other files that you upload, safe from physical losses. The potential of Dropbox is unlimited and there are coming up some applications as a complements that improves its performance (Droptunes for music, Dropboxifier for games savings, Jotform for receiving files to our Dropbox account from people who doesn’t have a Dropbox account, and many others).

    Dropbox has been developed by Dropbox Inc., a promising startup that, despite it has launched just one app in the Android Market, is being really successful thanks to the usability of its web service and its perfect integration with the smartphones.

    From our point of view, Dropbox is a MUST HAVE itself. One of those services that becomes a revolution since it changes the way we proceed. Give it a try and it will make your life a little easier.
