Apple iPhone Gets Dropbox App Too

 Apple iPhone Gets Dropbox App TooI signed up for a free Dropbox account earlier this year and I couldn’t be happier with the service it provides. In essence, it allows you to synchronize files across multiple computers in real-time. You can also use it as a file-sharing service to send larger documents to your friends.

Up until now, Dropbox has largely been limited to the regular computer environment, so you’d have to hop onto a desktop or laptop to access the files properly. That has now changed, since a new app has been developed for the iPhone and iPod touch that works just fine with Dropbox.

The core free service gives you 2GB of online storage and it runs in the background. It’s almost like a background-style FTP program.

For the iPhone app, you get much of the same kind of functionality, saving things to your Dropbox account directly from your handheld, but it gets a nice bonus too.

You know how the iPhone can take video? You can now save those video files directly to your Dropbox account. The same can be said about any still photos that you take. This way, your pictures and videos are automatically backed up.

Naturally, you’ll want to make sure that you have an adequate data plan or you’re in the presence of a Wi-Fi hotspot, since all of these uploads can add up quite quickly.
