Finally. The must-have app for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

I’ve been in love with Drop­box for a while now, so much so I’m pro­mot­ing it in my adspace in my side­bar.

Drop­box has made it much much easi­er to trans­fer files between com­puters. Sure, I could email them, but that’s not at all eleg­ant. All I do with Drop­box is copy a file to a folder, and it’s auto­ma­gic­ally copied to a Drop­box folder on all my oth­er com­puters, as well as a private folder in my secure Drop­box online stor­age space.

Now, there’s an app for that
So aside from the usu­al reas­on for run­ning drop­box, the abil­ity to sync your files online and across com­puters, we can now add iPhone and iPod Touch to that hard­ware mix, where pre­vi­ously we had to make do with a web-applic­a­tion inter­face.

Apple has finally approved the actu­al nat­ive app, so here’s what you get:

  • Access your Drop­box on the go
  • Down­load files for off­line view­ing
  • Sync pho­tos and videos to your Drop­box
  • Share links to files in your Drop­box

What this means — you can now eas­ily access all sorts of files among all your vari­ous com­puter on you iPhone or iPod Touch.

And, if you ‘favour­ite’ the doc­u­ment in the iPhone applic­a­tion, it’s down­loaded to your device for off­line view­ing — great for iPod Touch use out­side of a Wi-Fi zone.

So go ahead already, and down­load the app! And don’t for­get to set up a Drop­box account if you don’t already have one.
