Dropbox provides an effortless and elegant facility for synchronising data between many different computers, irrespective of whether they run Microsoft Windows, MacOS or Linux.
Now the iPhone and iPod Touch can be added to the mix with today’s release of the free Dropbox client on the iTunes appstore.
This means it is a snap to re-arrange your Dropbox folders, manage your files and view and edit documents on the go.
You can even synchronise photos and videos you capture using the device onto your handheld making them immediately available anywhere your Dropbox is synchronised, or to whoever you may be sharing folders with.
In today’s modern world of ubiquitous online connectivity cloud-based storage like Dropbox is a boon to productivity and efficiency. It far surpasses typical manual methods like e-mailing files to yourself or storing them on a USB stick and self-managing version control.
