DropBox, who uses it? How do u like? Give me the pros/cons.
Pros and cons compared to what? It's like asking for the pros and cons of a glass of water.
Dropbox is what it is. Taken in isolation everything it does is a pro and there are no cons.
Compared to other similar products? Drop box is not the only cloud file storage product.
Geez, lets put a little thought into this, instead of the smart aleck responses.
To dumb it down.
Why do u use it ? Why do you like it? What made you download? What don't you like about?
I use Dropbox and like it quite well. It's a lot better than Apples iDisk that I used prior.
Much easier to use and cross-platform integration. Meaning, it integrates with OS X, Windows and iOS.
It is what it is, and I can't think of any cons. It's a basic service and it takes care of my needs.
I put current versions of record-keeping files into a folder on my computer and into the dropbox folder. I also put any file I need to read (PDF, academic article, material for a conference e call) into DropBox since every app I use on my iPad or iPhone can access DropBox. For general cloud storage of practically every file on my computer, I use SugarSync which syncs within minutes every file as it's changed on any computer or my iPad. So DropBox makes accessing current files easy from any app - SugarSync is my preferred storage syncing solution for my computer HD (everything except iTunes music, apps, videos, books, audiobooks because those are stored on the Apple Servers or Audible servers and I can access them whenever).
I don't trust their code! Period!!
My entire company uses Dropbox as it works with all platforms. We depend on it.
What I do not like about Dropbox is not Dropbox's fault, it is Apple's fault. I need the files synced to my iPad and iPhone just like my Windows Desktop but Apple will not allow it.
One of the things I dislike about Apple. Maybe one day they will let use set up folders and put files in them.
I love it. I use it the most from this website, download wallpapers right to Dropbox then head over to my iPhone and download them onto there. I use it basically everyday for various different things.
I have been using Dropbox for 3 years now, and it is one of my essential apps to sync files between my 2 Macs and iOS devices. I have never had any issues with it, 110% reliable. It is what MobileMe / iCloud should have been, and probably would have been if the developers had not refused Apple's offer to buy the company.
Works great, integrates seamlessly into most any OS. A+
I love Dropbox, I use it almost daily. So easy to transfer files from anywhere to anywhere. It has come in handy countless times.
I see what you did there.
And yes, DROPBOX is one of the best around for cloud storage.
I like it and use it. It is free, try it for yourself and make your own decision.
Try it! You have nothing to lose. If you like it enough to fill it up, consider paying for it.
Dropbox is a great alternative to... iPhoto.
I use it for all different types of things, music, photos and files. Works great and nice to be able to acess my documents anywhere.
WHY hate iPhoto?
Having the cloud is useful for some of my documents since I don't have to carry a USB stick with them.
Also, it once helped me in a pinch because I forgot to bring my resume to a job interview. Luckily I had a copy in my dropbox so I popped it open on my iPad and showed it that way instead.
MOD NOTE: While many of us use and love DropBox, posting referral links is not allowed by the forum rules.
I use it as well. No complaints.
That was classic!
I too use Dropbox and think it's a great service. Cloud storage done right. Are there things they could do better? Sure, but no one else is close.
The free account is great, the upgrades are a bit pricey for the amount of storage you get.
Not sure if there's even anything I could complain about. I guess it depends on how you use it. My professor set up a folder to send my classmates and I readings, overview sheets, etc. That's pretty useful and I find it easy to use.
For myself, I put all my homework, research articles, etc. in Dropbox. That's about it. I'm happy with it. I can access that stuff whenever I'm on a school computer. If I have something a classmate may need, I can just forward it to them from my iPhone. I like how it works across Windows/OS X/iOS/Android as well.
I enjoy & rely on Dropbox daily.
In addition, I also enjoy water.
I drink five liters per day.
All pros, no cons
