Dropbox just made its way out of beta status and into the Android Market, and so let's take a look at the Android version of the popular desktop file sync app. After the break, folks. After the break.
Dropbox itself is a blessedly simple program on the desktop. Sign up, add folders, and it's synced to the cloud. No muss, no fuss. You get 2GB for free, and you can get 50GB of storage for $10 a month, or 100GB for $20 a month. You can share your Dropbox folders with your own computers, or with friends and family -- whoever. (It's how we share podcast files when we record locally.)
The Android app is just as simple. Log in and you see your Dropbox folder. Tap on one to open it and view your files, which can be opened directly from the app. You also can search through your Dropbox folders, upload new files -- including audio, video, pictures and text files. It's as simple as can be, which is the way it should be. Hopefully we'll see Dropbox come out of beta shortly.
