Dropbox for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Dropbox is a free and extremely easy-to-use tool for sharing files and syncing them between computers, and you can also use Dropbox to back up files and access them from other computers and devices (including from your iPad or iPhone, with dedicated apps for each of those devices).

Dropbox's interface is largely invisible, which is part of what makes this app so easy to use. When you install Dropbox on your Mac, you create a Dropbox folder. This is a local folder that lives on your Mac, but you can access the folder from other computers (Macs or PCs), or anywhere you have access to a Web browser. Even better, you can use this folder to share files with other people--either through a designated "Public" folder, or by setting up folders inside your Dropbox with shared access by multiple users that you choose (this solution can be particularly useful in work settings as a productivity tool, especially because Dropbox tracks older versions of files). You can also use Dropbox to back up your files online, although the biggest barriers to this are the size of your backups (you get 2GB free with Dropbox, or up to 100GB with a monthly fee) and the fact that backup files need to be located inside your Dropbox folder (there are some workarounds, though, for more technically savvy users). If you're already a Dropbox user, make sure you update to the most recent version, since Dropbox doesn't reliably do this on its own. Recent updates have added Growl-less notifications, the ability to pause syncing, and several stability fixes.

Dropbox gives you a lot of useful features for free, with a remarkably smooth interface and shallow learning curve. If you find yourself frequently transferring files between different people and computers by hand (either via e-mail or USB drives), Dropbox is a must download.

    easy to keep docs available to all devices

    "The digital life made easier!"

    June 5, 2011  |   By suntek101

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

    Pros

    Quick to learn, easy to use, and of course FREE!

    Cons

    No complaints so far

    Summary

    For a family with four computers and a son 200 miles away, this has been such a wonderful and fast way of exchanging audio and jpeg files. I love having it and I'm ecstatic about what it enables me to do.

    "It does what it promises & does it well"

    June 4, 2011  |   By hfdratch

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

    Pros

    Sits quietly and waits for a need. If I still had a business, more family living, more income streams; it would be used more and even more valuable.

    Cons

    Apps can always be easier and offer more for the same price - which is free.

    Summary

    It has saved me immense time and sometimes money (living in Mexico since the days before we had broadband - or even telephone lines - every document messengered or call made added up to huge bills). The app works for tax forms to the US or file transfers from my Macbook Pro Intel on Snow Leopard to my ancient iBook G3 on Tiger in my bedroom.

    Back to how we started: It does what it promises and not every application comes close to that.

    It doesn't crash or cause problems.

    It does what it promised to do, simply and well.

    "A wonderful addition to helpful mini programs"

    June 3, 2011  |   By bajaterry

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

    Pros

    Keeps my files in sync between two computers.

    Cons

    2GB not enough, 50 or 100GB too much. Why not sell by the GB so everyone can choose how many GBs? This is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5

    "Fast, Secure, Easy to use and Free. A Must Have!"

    May 30, 2011  |   By rhyst

    Version: Dropbox 1.1.35

    Pros

    Best free solution for sharing files
    when I take photos on my iphone it automatically uploads to dropbox and syncs with my computer.So no need to manually transfer
    To get extra free storage when signing up use this promo code
    http://*****/IOgXhLe

    Cons

    There are others out there that offer more free storage,
    however this is still worth getting as this is the most secure.

    Summary

    This allows me access to any files in my dropbox folder anywhere. It automatically syncs across computers / phones. And best of all its free.
    Dropbox is also the most secure cloud service available, encrypting files before uploading to the dropbox server.
    Dropbox also makes it easy to share files with anyone else.
    Bottom line extrememly easy and secure to use and free. Get it!

    Also if you use this promo code when signing up you can get extra storage for free:
