The Dropbox app for the iPhone is useful. That is, if you use Dropbox already.
In order to review the Dropbox app, you need to be familiar with the computer program itself. And what the company offers. It's essentially a free cloud-based storage system for computer files.
It's useful in terms of sharing, uploading, and maintaining files across different devices such as your phone, computer, and tablet. For tech-savvy attorneys, having a program like Dropbox can simplify your life.
Dropbox is great for syncing your files across multiple devices.
You get 2 GB of storage free. You can pay for more storage if you'd like. And the program is compatible with multiple different platforms. You can install the application onto your Windows, Mac, and Linux PC. You can also download the app onto your BlackBerry, iPhone and iPad.
The convenience of the Dropbox mobile app is great.
Want to access your work files on your phone? That's easy enough through the app. And, even better is the fact that you can edit files. Plus everything will be synched up, meaning any changes you make will be transferred back onto your PC. The app is also streamlined and easy to use:
Don't worry about wasting your phone's entire storage space.
When you're talking about a phone, 2 GB of storage is a huge chunk. But you you shouldn't be too worried. Dropbox will not automatically sync everything onto your phone. But you can choose certain files as "favorites" to automatically sync.
Share your stuff -- easily.
Lawyers these days often collaborate with other attorneys. It might be useful then to have Dropbox. This way you can easily share case files. And you can all have the most updated version of a file at all times.
Should you get Dropbox for iPhone? It's definitely worth if if you already use the program on your computer.
