Dropbox founded by Drew, Arash, and Aston, currently in private beta simplifyies file backup, sync, and sharing for the world. In short, it’s a new way to store and share files online. It also serves as a great way to synchronize files between computers. After installing Dropbox on your computers, be it Windows or Mac, you’ll see a Dropbox folder, where all of the storing and sharing takes place. If you were to add a bunch of files to your Dropbox folder on one computer, within seconds the Dropbox folder on the other computer would have those same files. The same goes for changes to files. If you were to make a change to one file, the same file on the other computer would be updated. Each of the icons in the folder will have a green checkmark to let you know that they are up to date. This could really come in handy for those who have one computer at work and one computer at home or for those of you with two computers in the house that you’d like to keep synchronized.
Another great feature is that it comes with a built-in photo gallery that is integrated into the desktop. All you do is drag the folder of your pictures inside of your Dropbox folder. Dropbox will create an album online with the same name an then you’ll be given a URL to the folder so that you can easily share them.
