Scenario #3: You had planned to stay home all weekend to work on an important report that is due Monday morning. The files that you need to reference are all resident on your laptop – you’re ready to write a report that will even impress your boss’s boss. However, your best friend just invited you to an all-expenses-paid, fun-in-the-sun weekend at a famous resort – flight included. Not to worry says your friend; you’ll be home early enough. Mechanical issues find you stranded (with your iPhone, but unfortunately, not with your laptop) at the airport thinking of how you’ll ever be able to explain all of this to your boss.
Each of these scenarios above could have been averted by using Dropbox. Dropbox is a free service (although you can upgrade for a fee) that easily allows you to move files between computers and to share files (and folders) with other users. You can use the web-based version of Dropbox or you can download the App. Dropbox can also be used on the iPhone, the iPad, and on Android devices.
