    I love this app, anyone else find it very handy?

    Anything out there better than dropbox? This I think is the first app I've had like this.

    I use both Dropbox and MobileMe. Great clouds.

    I use Dropbox for public stuff and MobileMe for private stuff. Both are great.

    myself the iphone apps are not all that useful. I want to upload pics but I can only do one at a time. that really makes the usefulness not all that useful.

    I love Dropbox.

    I have a long list of improvements I want them to make, but they're still far and away the best. I even pay for MobileMe and I still use Dropbox instead of iDisk. It's just so much faster and easier. If you use not only the iPhone app but also the Mac and Desktop apps it's really fantastic.

    I love the syncing capabilities of MobileMe, but I've found iDisk to be garbage over and over again. Dropbox is an awesome replacement for it.

    The ability to seamlessly have my files on my work Win7 PC, my home MBP, my iPhone and my iPad is huge

    I can complete a PPT presentation at work, toss it in DropBox and make a presentation on my iPad immediately and then show it to my boss on my iPhone casually

    I think it is a must have personally

    I agree with MacDawg and my company takes great advantage of DropBox. We are on different platforms, some Apple, some PC and others Blackberry and we can ALL see our company files on DropBox.:p

    It is the future:)

    GO DAWGS!

    Dropbox is one of my favorite apps. IMO it's much better than mobile me with native clients for many plarforms.

    I do much the same thing, except I publish some photo albums on Mobile Me as well. Both services are very useful for me.

    The most useful part fro me with the iPhone is other app integration. 1Password support lets me take my passwords and info anywhere securely. I use it with Filer to download docs on the go and have them waiting when I get to my computer. I've seen other apps that take advantage, too, but those are two of my biggest uses.

    My favorite iPhone app.

    We'll record demo songs on our Macs, place them in the Dropbox and have those songs on our iDevices/other Macs.

    It's useful since we don't have to sync with iTunes and will have them on our individual Macs instantly.

    It does have a fair list of shortcomings but its the most useful app ever!
