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.
