Mike gave us a glimpse of Dropbox back in March, and in my testing of services of this type I found Dropbox to be among the easiest to use and manage. Because there is no new interface to learn, it just works for me, and is easy to introduce to clients. A nice demo screencast does a great job of explaining how it all works.

Also announced today is the availability of a Linux client to add to their existing Windows and Mac options as well as information on new storage plan options. The 2GB free accounts are still around but if you need more space you will have the option to upgrade to a 50GB box for $9.99 / month or $99.99 / year.

Will you try Dropbox? With the myriad of sync and share options available, what do you use to keep files in sync?

  1. Been using it since it came out in Beta and have totally loved it. One of the few tools I actually use.

  2. DropBox is fantastic!! I’ve been using it for months – I don’t know how we survived without it!

  5. Is there really need for client app? WEBDAV HTTP protocol expansion has all it takes to drive-mount your online storage.(e.g. box.net).

  6. This app is really simple and very useful. I love it. Recommended.

    Point noted (and cogs whirring) re. WebDav above, tho.

  7. On closer inspection of box.net, dropbox is massively cheaper with a lot more storage, also.

  8. Drop Box is one of the best cross-platform sharing/syncing tool out there and they have made it really easy to use.

  9. I have been waiting patiently for this to become public, now that it is I installed it last night and see many uses for this application. I love it when a company finds simple solutions to problems that we all have. Great job love it so far!

  10. Some of you that compares box.net or WEBDAV storage forget that Dropbox also provides file versioning!
    That’s really useful.
