Beta Test This! Dropbox v1.0.0.7

File syncing software and service, Dropbox, is testing out new features with a beta release.  If you haven’t tried their free software out, we definitely recommend it.  It’s a breeze to sync files, images, music and more across multiple platforms and users.  We share an internal folder here at AndroidGuys and it makes communication very efficient.   Head to Dropbox’s forums for more information or to simply follow along in the development!  Sorry AT&T users, you’ll have to sit this one out.  Oh yeah, if you need a free Dropbox account, click here and start with 2GB!Features in Dropbox Beta:

    • Notifications are filtered better, so shouldn’t overwhelm the phone as much
    • Proxy settings are handled better
    • Fixed several network issues
