There has been an absolute storm of articles in ARN about why businesses need to adopt the Cloud – so why wait? As we move towards it, we have to keep up with technologies and engage with the cloud.
Dropbox has not only provided a cloud solution for PCs, but now, users can sync their photos, documents and videos on their mobile platforms as well.
The mobile app enables users to take their files with them on the go, edit them using Dropbox mobile, upload content to the app and share it.
The secure platform keeps a one-month history of work, any changes can be undone and files can be undeleted. It also transfers just the parts of a file that change instead of the whole thing.
The app works even when offline, regardless of a connection and manually sets bandwidth limits when utilising a connection.
Dropbox comes with a download quota of 2GB for free, with subscriptions up to 100GB available.
Prices start at $9.99 for the Pro 50 offering.
Pros: Can be used for personal or business purposes to access a shared store of data.
Cons: All files do not upload automatically to the Dropbox server.
Verdict: Perfect for backup. Saves you from forgetting to bring your external hard drives and lugging your laptop around.
