    You'll get the extra 250 megs when you install the desktop software. Also when you view a file on your Droid it will save a copy in your dropbox folder on the sdcard. Pretty neat app!

    Is there any way to work the system to get more referral credits. I could really go for that extra space :)

    YEA!

    loving this app right now :D

    Syncing whole folders and Integration into the "SHARE"-Funktion of the gallery is the last missing to make it perfect!

    My only concern with this application is that they say the files are also synced on their website (web server).

    Well, what if their server gets compromised? Said attack is than able to access a large numbers of files from people's personal computers (even if it is just downloading them).

    Is there an option so that it doesn't sync with the website?

    Just a thought.
