    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!

    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.

    OUTSTANDING!!! I've been waiting for this!

    I use Keepass to store all my passwords and the PC version of Dropbox to keep them synched on my computers. I just tried this app and it worked perfectly! The android version of Keepass was able to open the database from my dropbox folder with no trouble at all. Awesome!! dancedroid

    Dropbox implements their own security methods on top of Amazon's already secure storage. Dropbox doesn't host your files they lease space on Amazon's S3 network. Put it this way.... the files synced to their servers have a lot smaller chance of being compromised than the ones on your Droid.

    True...get this from Dropbox:


    Your files are actually safer while stored in your Dropbox than on your computer in some cases. We use the same secure methods as banks and the military to send and store your data.
    Dropbox takes the security of your files and of our software very seriously. We use the best tools and engineering practices available to build our software, and we have smart people making sure that Dropbox remains secure. Your files are backed-up, stored securely, and password-protected.
    Nobody can see your private files in Dropbox unless you deliberately invite them or put them in your Public folder. Everything in your Public folder is, by definition, accessible to anyone. Otherwise, the only way to access the files in your Dropbox online is with your username and password.
    For Our Advanced Users
    Dropbox uses modern encryption methods to both transfer and store your data.

    • Shared folders are viewable only by people you invite
    • All transmission of file data and metadata occurs over an encrypted channel (SSL).
    • All files stored on Dropbox servers are encrypted (AES-256) and are inaccessible without your account password
    • Dropbox website and client software have been hardened against attacks from hackers
    • Online access to your files require your username and password
    • Public files are only viewable by people who have a link to the file(s). Public folders are not browsable or searchable
    • Dropbox employees aren't able to access user files, and when troubleshooting an account they only have access to file metadata (filenames, file sizes, etc., not the file contents)
    Dropbox uses Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3) for storage, which has a robust security policy of its own. You can find more information on Amazon's data security from the S3 site or, read more about how Dropbox and Amazon securely stores data.
