Dropbox

If you aren’t using Dropbox yet, you’re missing out.

Dropbox is a great utility you can install on your Mac or Windows machine to share files between computers, your iPad, iPhone and any web browser. If that doesn’t cover you, I don’t know what else would. A friend turned me on to it as an alternative to iDisk (Apple’s MobileMe cloud based folder storage) and I’ve been loving it for a few months now. It’s free for two gigs of storage and if you sign up with the link below, we both will get an extra 250 mb of storage.

You can even share folders from your dropbox with other users who can access those files in a shared folder in their dropbox or via a web browser. It’s a great way to get files onto your iPad and to access them on your iPhone as well. I can’t tell you the number of times that I’ve used it to access a file on my iPad and even to share it from there. Since I’m constantly switching between my dekstop and laptop, Dropbox is invaluable to me as a central resource for files too that doesn’t involve the hassle of connecting to a server.

If you need more than two gigs of storage, you can purchase moderately priced plans for additional storage needs.

So there you have it. That’s my recommendation for Dropbox. Please go ahead and signup with this referral link:
