Dropbox launches iPhone app for file sync, sharing

updated 07:55 pm EDT, Tue September 29, 2009

App complements standard desktop-based service

Dropbox has released an application for the iPhone and iPod touch that allows users to access or manage content from their Dropbox accounts. From the mobile interface, users can view or download files, take photos or videos and upload them to the Dropbox, share links to files, or sync downloaded files to keep the desktop and mobile systems up-to-date.

The Dropbox iPhone app is available from the App Store for free. The app does not work as a standalone program, but rather as a complement to the standard desktop-based software for Mac, Windows or Linux platforms. An account with 2GB of storage can be opened for free, while 50GB costs $10/month and 100GB costs $20/month.

    I would actually use DropBox

    If it was significantly cheaper for less storage space. The plans they have are stupid. They won't be in business long unless they provide smaller and cheaper plans.

    My main complaint on drop box is how it works. I have no desire to keep specific files stored in a generic 'drop box' folder just to get them to back-up off-site. Let me store my files where I want and specify what files/directories back up.
