Thumbs up Just got on the Dropbox band wagon

Just tried out Dropbox for the first time today. I am pissed I waited this long to give it a go, especially owning Android Devices.

1. Dropbox backs up my Android pictures:
Dropbox isn’t just useful for sharing files with others, I am also a using it as a quick, easy, and secure way to keep an offsite backup my phones/tablets pictures. I use my phone for pictures all the time since I do not own a camera and my phones camera is just fine for the pictures I need to take. I always wanted an easy way to back up my photos to see on my PC or if something happens to my phone. I have Dropbox set up to automatically back up my phones pictures after I take new ones ensuring I have them in another place if something happens to my phone.

2. It is free. (for the amount of memory I need):
Chances are, unless you’re working with really large files, you can continue working with the free level of service indefinitely; if you start running short of space you can upgrade to a paid plan. Also, Dropbox offers many ways to upgrade your storage for free from connecting your social media accounts, telling them why you like Dropbox, scavenger hunts, and even referring friends.

When you refer a friend, both you and your friend that you refer get 500MB of free space. If you don't have an account, use the link below I just provided to sign up and start with 500MB of extra storage without having to do anything.


3. Easily share files with friends:
This is one of my favorite Dropbox features. It makes sharing incredibly easy. You can create a shared folder and give access to selected people. You can also use the public folder wNhere you can put a file and create a public link to specific file, then use that link to share the file with anyone.

4. No file size limit:
You can backup and sync files of any size and any type with Dropbox, unlike some other cloud storage services that limit file size based on being a free user. The cool thing is that when you make changes to a file and then add it again to your Dropbox folder, it only syncs the changes made, making it quick and uses up less bandwidth.

If you aren't already using Dropbox, you might as well try it seeing as its free. I got my first android device 4 years ago and don't know why I have waited this long to try Dropbox with it.
