DropBox: Android File Sharing Access System

I believe that mobile technology is at the heart of freedom. I believe that your phone is a tool of production and that the key to unlocking a new age of productivity and effectiveness is leveraging correctly the tool you take everywhere.

    Dropbox is excellent – being using on my laptop. work and home PCs for a while. It was the first app I installed on the HTC Desire.

    What’s great is that it just works!

    Interesting, I just installed DropBox on both my PC and EVO. Couple of questions:

    When I add an item from my PC to DropBox, is it actually downloaded to my phone, or is it sitting at the server waiting for me to download it? Not sure I want to automagically download 2GB of stuf to my phone all the time.
    In the same vein, is DropBox “always on” on my phone, and thus eating up my battery?

    Thanks for the article.

      Dropbox on the PC does automatically download and store the most recent version of each file but Dropbox on your phone does not. It will download files only when you open them.

      No it doesn’t run unless you open it.

      All good news I think.

    If you haven’t gotten Dropbox, get it now. Dropbox is a backup tool that lets you sync your files between multiple computers. You simply install the software on all computers you want to sync your files on. Then simply drag and drop your files into a folder that Dropbox software creates on your desktop and voila the files are now also on your other computers. No more need for a usb stick.

    Sync your files online and across computers with @Dropbox. 2GB account is free!

    Thanks for this, I’m going to give it a try right away. It sounds like it could be just what I needed for some projects.
