A great way to stay synchronized!

A few weeks ago, I talked about Cloud, what it is and how it can be useful (Tip Of The Week (TOTW): What is the Cloud).

One of my favorite (i.e., most useful) apps for both the iOS & Android is Dropbox (www.dropbox.com). Dropbox

Dropbox is a simple way to keep your files accessible and synchronized across all your devices.  Dropbox will work on your iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), Android phones and tables, and also your computer (Mac, Windows, and Linux). Dropbox Synchronization

You can download Dropbox by going to the App Store, or www.dropbox.com , whichever is appropriate for your device. Once you have downloaded it, created an account, you simply put a file into the Dropbox directory or app, wait a few seconds for it to be saved, then you will be able to access it from another device.

What makes this especially useful are all the applications that interface to it on your mobile device.  For example, suppose you have a bunch of different documents on a specific topic, this could be files related to a business transaction, notes on your child’s classes, sports, and camps; or any other topic and you work on these documents on your desktop computer, but then you leave the house and need access to the document.  You can open it on your smartphone or even a different computer, and do whatever you need with that document.

Oh, did I mention?  Dropbox is FREE!

Here’s an example of how it looks:
