    Dropbox: The Ultimate File-Sharing and Syncing App


    (Page 1 of 3 )

    People have been storing information online for quite some time. That ability was brought to a new level when Dropbox was introduced a year or two ago. That's worth mentioning today because, as you'll see, there have been some creative new developments with the application.

    Back in 2008 when the application Dropbox was first introduced to the public, it was heralded as being one of the most promising new tools for online storage, file syncing, and sharing. Just as it continues to be today, Dropbox is a cross-platform system plug-in that gives users a shared drop box where they can unload files and then access them from multiple computers, similar to how they would on a home machine.

    Dropbox can also keep track of any changes that might occur to files. This feature is especially useful, because it also allows users to revert back to previous versions that have been archived using cloud storage, which basically means saved online as opposed to one specific, physical location.

    The application also has a photo album feature that's considered particularly well implemented, as it automatically groups together a folder of photos and categorizes them into albums using the available metadata. Visual notifiers even inform users when a file is syncing up with the server.

    The MAC version of the app even lets users know when a change is made to their drop box, and if a file needs recovery, it can be sent back to its correct folder using the Internet. Even if users find themselves away from their PC, they can still access their files from the application's web interface.  

    So why all of this attention to an application that was created in 2008? Well, since its creation, people have thought of some pretty ingenious ways to use the app, from remotely controlling a PC to using the application to be more productive online. Let's take a look at some new ways to utilize Dropbox as well as a couple of new applications that perform similar tasks.
