Dropbox application in Android Market

by: James TromansMay 5, 2010


Dropbox have already announced their Android application a few weeks back, but now it is officially available in the Android Market. For those that are not familiar with Dropbox, it is a very popular file-storage solution for both the Mac and Windows.

Dropbox is a Web 2.0 based file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. which uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization. It was founded in 2007 by MIT graduates Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi…

The move into the Android Market is one which shows great promise for what is to come. As popular names in the web 2.0 world branch out with specific Android applications, it can only serve to strengthen the Market.

Other important features include:

  • Upload from the phone to Dropbox
  • Download files stored online
  • Share links to files with friends or the public
  • Automatically upload images taken from your camera
  • Open files with other Android apps (for instance, Word docs can open with DocsToGo, images in PicSay, etc.)
  • Search your Dropbox archive
  • larryO

    Here are referrals for an extra 250mb of space. So 2.25gb of space.
    it will show the extra space once you install the program, log in and go to the site account settings.

    My issue with searching for apps on the Droid comes when you try & search from a web browser rather than a mobile device. Android for example has a very limited approach through web browsers(hate that). I have come to the conclusion that if I want to search apps on my laptop, I should use other marketplaces. I found the Facebook, AIM, & more on a site called RawApps
