Review: Dropbox

Easiest way to move files to iPad from anywhere!

View on the App Store: Dropbox - Dropbox

Features of Dropbox:

  • Easily transfer files to iPad
  • Send large files from iPad to another device
  • Share files with friends & colleagues
  • Download files or view directly on Dropbox
  • Access files from any internet connection

Dropbox is fantastic. Dropbox is essentially an online folder where you can store things and retrieve them from almost any device; your iPad, iPhone, iMac (Mac or MacBook) or PC or Android device. It's easy to set up, only an eMail address and password are necessary, and the speed is dependent on your internet connection speeds.

Transferring files from one device to another device can be challenging, but with Dropbox it's a dream. Easy peasy. Simply open Dropbox, tap Upload, choose your files and let it do it's thing.  It will send the file to your Dropbox account where you can download it from wherever you need it.

It took me a few minutes to work out how to DOWNLOAD a file from Dropbox to my other iPad, but it's easy now that I know how. Simply tap on the STAR in the top right hand corner which adds the file to your Favourites. This means the file will download to your device automatically, available for offline use. You can also open or save the files into any App that supports the file type you're downloading. For instance with one tap you can save any image in your Dropbox folder directly into your Camera Roll.

It's one of my Essential Apps for iPad that I'd recommend everyone has.  You need to create a Dropbox account before using the App, but it's FREE and easy to do. Here's a link directly to the sign-up page:
