    Dropbox is now available in the market, works great so far!!!!

    Anyone not signed up can use the link below to receive an extra 250 megabytes over the free 2 gigs.

    https://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTUwMTg2Mzk5


    Also just for today 5/5/2010, Documents to Go is only $5.55 normally $29.99 in the market. That is a steal to be able to edit all your files through the dropbox app. It puts the quickoffice app to shame!

    It syncs any and all your files together up to 2gigs free across most devices and platforms. Higher packages are available for a fee.

    The uses are limitless with dropbox.

    Wow that sounds awesome. Can I upload word documents and powerpoints and view them?

    Also does it take a big hit on battery life? I know you said it just came out so you may not have had much time to play with it, just wondering.

    so i just set up an account to check it out. i read the readme file in the photos folder. it said "if you open your camera application while in dropbox, it will automatically sync all your photos with your computer". i can't seem to get that to work. any luck with that anyone? am i just doing it wrong? i figured it was easy enough so i deleted the readme before i tried it. so idk if maybe i missed a step.

    Same here.

    Edit: You get the additional .25 GB once you install the desktop application.

    The app is kind of disappointing actually. All that waiting and it's really not any better than the Droidbox app already in the Market. It doesn't actually do file sync'ing, it's more of a shortcut way to upload/download to your dropbox. I want an app that behaves like the desktop version and keeps the copy on the phone in sync with what's online (and vice versa), perhaps with the ability to choose which folders should be synchronized. As far as I can tell, the only advantage it has over Droidbox is that it tells you how long ago a file was modified.

    who knows when that will be though it would be sweet...
    "
    Why don't files sync automatically to my mobile device?

    Dropbox applications for your mobile device sync on demand. You get to choose which files to download to your mobile device.
    Dropbox for iPhone, iPad, and Android are prevented from running continuously in the background because of hardware and software restrictions. For example, the operating system prevents background processes or the mobile device's limited battery and memory prevent all files in your Dropbox from syncing when you're not using the phone. In addition, 3G and EDGE can unexpectedly lose connection with the internet, often interfering with the Dropbox syncing process. "

    This is a cool app, can't get it to upload more than one picture at a time, not a big deal though. I don't see where I got another 250 megs either but maybe there is a limit as to how many referrals are given. I like it though! Works good for word docs! Thanks for the heads up!

    edit: guess I wasn't patient enuf, the 250 megs are there!

    Looks like at this time it is only online syncing. I have used other platforms that have the "star favorite" which enables local storage. Hopefully we'll see that soon.
