Dropbox Android App Detailed

Although we’re still a few months away from the actual release, Dropbox has decided to tease us with some details about their upcoming Android application.  The official Dropbox blog has posted some screen shots and a few bullet points letting the world know what they might expect.  If you’re familiar at all with what the service allows, you probably won’t be terribly surprised by the features. 

However, here’s what we’ve got in store!

  • Access your Dropbox on the go – All the contents of your Dropbox are available for viewing. You can even stream music and movies in your Dropbox straight to your Android device.
  • Make edits to your files and sync them back to Dropbox – Any changes you make to your files will sync back up to your Dropbox.
  • Download files for offline viewing – Add files to ‘Favorites’ and they’ll be accessible at any time.
  • Upload files and sync them to your Dropbox – Take a photo, shoot a video, or upload some audio from your Android phone and email its public link to a friend in less than a minute.
  • Share links to files in your Dropbox – Yes! Any file in your Dropbox!

Sony Ericsson Gearing Up for New Devices, Shots Leaked

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 was launched last year as SE’s flagship device, but the device pretty much failed because it didn’t get Android updates on time, despite the fact that we heard it would get Gingerbread. Now it seems that Sony Ericsson is looking to launch some more new Android devices.

    DropBox works pretty well for me – on both Mac and PC.

    And I wanted to give this little hint:
    –> by using this linkhttps://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTU5ODc3MTA5 ,
    both me and any new user will get a 256MB bonus to the 2GB free space!

    This extra space for backup and sync will be the most welcomed for any new user!
