Living In The Cloud
What Is Dropbox?
Dropbox is this really cool, super easy, online, free service that allows you to store your photos, files, documents, and videos on the web where you can access them from any computer in the world. Perfect for a girl like me who wants to live in the cloud!
My wonderful, darling daughter introduced me to dropbox. She started a new job a few weeks ago and the company she works for uses dropbox to send files to each other. It’s fast, and it’s secure. Plus, no more broken links and forgotten attachments. When you need to send a file to someone, you literally drag it into the dropbox folder on your desktop, it syncs to the web, and, voilá, your done! You just need to make sure you’ve designated the folder you put the file into as a shared folder, that you’re sharing with the person you’re sending the file too, of course, and that’s really all there is to it.
Access Files, Folders, Pics, Whatever From ANYWHERE in the WORLD
What I like about it is that I can create client folders and when I’m traveling all I have to do is drag the file to the appropriate folder and I’m sure the file will be there when I need it. I can access it from ANY computer that can reach the internet. I can even check on the files and set up folders and lots of other stuff right from my phone if I need to. And, it’s available on the iphone, ipad, Android, and Blackberry.
