Ebooks are portable digital versions of printed books. Being digital in form, such books are easy to carry around in one’s tablet or smartphone. There are millions of ebooks on the Web, and there are also numerous ebook reader apps for Android. One new ebook reader app that we find worth checking out is Fabrik, created by XDA Developers member eirikrwu. It is a simple eBook reader that supports Dropbox accounts. This means that you can store your ebooks in the cloud via Dropbox, and Fabrik lets you access and read them wherever you are for as long as you…

Dropbox

The Dropbox application for Android is one of the premier cloud storage applications out there. It is so good, that some OEMs include it with their devices when they ship. Now, Dropbox has received an update that’ll help you organize your media a little better. It does so by adding a picture tab, where all of your movies and pictures are easily accessible.

Dropbox Galaxy Camera Note 2

By now, it’s no longer out of the ordinary for manufacturers to bundle their phones with free online storage as a way to lure customers. The Samsung Galaxy S3, for instance, comes with a free 50GB Dropbox cloud storage. So we’re not really surprised to see the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera getting the same treatment.

Armed with a powerful Dropbox browser, Cloudpipes for Dropbox (beta) is capable of downloading or uploading whole folders at once. You can create pipes that would automatically link a remote Dropbox folder to a folder on your device so that you can choose which Dropbox files or folder go where on your phone storage. More than that, you can schedule the app to automatically upload, download, and transfer certain files whenever you like. The app runs independently of the official Dropbox app for Android, so all you need to do in order to access your Dropbox content is to allow…

It seems Samsung is a lot more focused on services and software with its latest devices. The company gave some of its Galaxy S3 customers 50GB of Dropbox storage, with access for 2 years – presumably you’ll have to buy another Galaxy device to continue using 50GB or more after the 2-year period expires, depending on the promotion for that future Galaxy S device. Now, Samsung decided that 50GB of free storage from Dropbox was not enough, and it has partnered with Dropbox’s competitor SugarSync to bring an extra 5GB of cloud-based storage to its Galaxy S3 customers. At first…

We now have those apps where you can take a picture of a landmark, and it tells you information about it. Then there are those articulate, in-depth applications in which you take a picture of a foreign street sign and it translates it for you. While everyone might think that is cool, it should also matter how clear photographed text looks like on a smartphone. Being able to come back to a picture to access the photographed text in it is one of the perks current smartphones have to offer. That’s why we often take pictures of various things that…

Unlike certain carriers in the US that are denying future owners of the Galaxy S3 their Samsung-given right of 50GB of free Dropbox storage, all Canadian folks will get their free 2-year cloud storage upon purchasing the Galaxy S3. Mobile Syrup has gotten in touch with Samsung directly and received the following confirmation: “New GS III users will receive a basic 2GB of free space with Dropbox (It is permanent). When they create their own Dropbox account or link their existing account to Samsung Apps, the user will receive 48GB more space through a promotional offer, for a total of…

A big point of consternation for consumers considering the HTC One X as their next smartphone was the lack of an expandable memory storage option. While some explained that the 23GB additional free Dropbox cloud storage more than made up for it, the use of microSD expansion is obviously preferred. Another disappointing factor about most cloud storage services currently available is that accessing some files such as videos required you to download the entire video first, which meant you needed the additional storage space anyway. With the latest update from Dropbox, there is finally some great news on that front, at…
