Dropbox Sync API released to developers

Dropbox Sync API released to developers

For those of you not familiar with Dropbox… well, you might want to get outside every once in awhile. The service provides cloud hosting for your files, and makes them available on mobile and desktop devices. Now, imagine that you’re trying to download a large file on your mobile device, and you lose signal – that’s bad news. Enter the Sync API.

With the new sync API, developers can let their application work with Dropbox as if it were a local file system, and even work offline. They simply need to add the new API into an app, and the magic happens. According to Sean Lynch, Product Manager for Dropbox, “Our mission is to let users access their data wherever they are. The Sync API lets Android and iOS developers focus on the core of the app and leave all the complexities of syncing and storage to us”.
