Dropbox Anywhere provides cloud-capable APIs for developers

updated 11:05 pm EDT, Wed May 5, 2010

Service: mobile, 3rd party apps, developer support

Internet storage and file synchronization provider Dropbox has announced a new service, Dropbox Anywhere. The service aims to equip third-party apps for iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry -- arriving later in the Summer -- with the new Dropbox mobile API. The new API will enable developers to create apps that can access the contents of users' Dropbox accounts and keep the data in sync across multiple devices.

The API allows developers to add features like Dropbox file access and syncing, without having to design additional file-management structures. The API should simplify the process of integrating cloud services into various apps.

Dropbox functionality is already available or on the way to a number of third-party applications, like QuickOffice, FuzeMeeting, GoodReader and ReaddleDocs. Other apps include DataViz Documents To Go, Avatron, Air Sharing HD, Sprite Software Dictamus and Jot Not Scanner.
