    Drop Box, It's Bl**dy Marvellous

    Only just found Dropbox by accident. I'm using it as an Ftp server to send large photo folders to magazines that don't yet have Ftp. Saving time and effort posting out CDs. Also of course syncing to my Pad and phone at the same time.
    If you haven't seen it, your missing out - and it's free!!!
    No connection with them by the way other than an ecstatic user.
    Cheers,
    Peter

    I am a very happy user of Dropbox. I have been using it for around a year now. I wish the ipad app was better. But other than that it is great. I pay for a 100 GB account and use it. Well worth it.

    I agree with you. I have been using it since I got my iPad. It along with Documents To Go as well as WiFi from my cell phone are the reasons I have made the iPad a replacement for my HP2140 netbook.

    Been using DropBox for years now. It is very handy for getting to data on any device I need when away from the home or office.

    However, bear in mind that DropBox does nothing to encrypt your data, so unless you have a secure password that cannot be hacked your data could be easily seen by anyone. Also note that if you put things into Public folders for those companies to access, anyone else can access it as well.

    Sure wish it actually synced with the server instead of just showing me the documents that I have uploaded. I expected it to actually download the files to the iPad. I was disappointed.

    That is not the "cloud" way though. If you transfer it to your dropbox, just go to the app, make the document a "favourite", and the you can access it without a net connection.

    Mine were downloaded - I think!

    On the security point. I don't have anything that particularly needs to be secured. But as far as I have found from using it for a couple of days, if you put the files into a shared folder and then only share it with the person whose Email address you have inserted only that person will be able to access them.
