Password managers are incredibly useful tools as it not only helps users remember their passwords to a variety of websites, but some even help users generate strong passwords that will make it difficult for hackers to attempt to guess them. Right now some of the more popular options include 1Password and LastPass.
Dropbox started out as a cloud storage service where people could share documents and other files online with each other. However, over the years, the company has evolved from being a mere cloud storage service to being something more like a collaborative space, where people could have deeper interactions with shared files.
It has always been possible to share any file or folder from your Dropbox with someone else even if they didn’t have a Dropbox account of their own. The service has long been used by people who want to collaborate on files. However, Dropbox is now launching a new service which will particularly focus on the data transfer side of things and not collaboration. With Dropbox Transfer, which is launching […]
Moleskine is no stranger to creating smart notebooks or just notebooks for that matter. It has made a few in the past with Evernote and Creative Cloud support. The company’s latest creation is the Dropbox Smart Notebook which, as the name suggests, can connect to your Dropbox account.
Google and Dropbox had announced over a year ago that they would work together to make their cloud storage services play nice with each other. The integration that was announced last summer is now switching things up a notch. It’s now possible for Dropbox Business customers to participate in an open beta program which allows them to edit Google Docs within Dropbox itself.
Dropbox has quietly made a change that’s going to affect all of its users who are on the free plan. It no longer allows unlimited device linking for free accounts. This means that unless users upgrade to one of its paid plans which start at just over $8 per month, they will be restricted to three devices for a single account.
If you collaborate on Dropbox with a handful of users, it can be pretty easy to manage. However if you’re looking to collaborate with more users, like if you work at a huge organization, then things can get a bit messy, but Dropbox is hoping to address that by announcing a new feature in the form of Multi-Team Admin.
Commenting on videos is a feature that has been around for a long time, but sometimes comments can get taken out of context because it can be unclear as to at which point in the video the comment is directed at. However it seems that Dropbox is changing that by letting users comment on videos at specific times.
Dropbox works with many apps, where you can choose to save or pull files directly from Dropbox without having to open an app. An example would be Gmail where users can pull files from Dropbox to add as an attachment in emails. Now it looks like the opposite is true, where Dropbox can now work with other apps.
Dropbox is a great cloud storage service if you’re looking for a way to backup and sync your files and folders across multiple platforms. However given that there are plenty of other online services that offer similar functionality, such as iCloud, OneDrive, and Google Drive, just to name a few, Dropbox certainly needs to set itself apart.
Gmail has become one of the default email services that many people use, but given that Google can only do so much or provide so much services, it’s not surprising that people sometimes turn to other companies for their different needs. For example some users might prefer using Dropbox over Google Drive.
Searching for text-based files in Dropbox is pretty simple and straightforward, where you just need to type what you’re looking for. However searching for images is a different story, and this is something that many companies are working on, where they’re developing AI to help identify images so that these are actual labels and identifiers that users can search images with.
These days as our media files start getting bigger to accommodate higher resolution displays, our storage needs have increased as well. This is evidenced on our mobile devices where 16GB as base storage is no longer enough, and where some manufacturers are even considering putting as much as 512GB of storage into their devices.
Cloud storage is a great way for users to keep their files synced and available across multiple devices, such as phones, computers, tablets, and more. It makes accessing them easier if you switch between devices frequently. Now for those who use Gmail, you might be interested to learn about a new partnership between Google and Dropbox.
