    "Excellent for Sharing and Storing"

    June 23, 2013  |   By Myrna280

    Version: Dropbox 2.2.8

    Pros

    Easy to use for sharing, moving and storing documents and photos. Enough people have Dropbox so it's very easy to share very large documents with them...just move a document to Dropbox, indicate that it's to be shared and with whom, and then send them a notification through Dropbox. Can also be set to automatically store images when a SD or CF card is inserted into the computer.

    Cons

    5 GB that comes with the free Dropbox is too little, especially if you're storing images there.

    Summary

    I plan to upload images to Dropbox while traveling, as a backup.

    "Very helpful and useful"

    June 16, 2013  |   By pfhoesli

    Version: Dropbox 2.2.3

    Pros

    Easyest sharing between different devices and Systems: PC, Mac, iOS, Android

    Cons

    On Mac there are extremely often updates. So I am very unsure if it is in a unstable code.

    Summary

    I use it dayly - I won't miss it.

    "version confusion-too many updates"

    May 24, 2013  |   By marikavs

    Version: Dropbox 2.0.21

    Pros

    I would have actually given it 5 stars, but as I'm totally confused about the version number now (2.0.21 or 2.1.16?) and there have been so many updates I haven't had a chance to use it in between... I only rated it a 4.

    Cons

    (same as above--that was one sentence; both pro & con.)

    Summary

    Used to be great. I no longer know. Updates so fast and furious and don't have a chance to use it in between updates.

    "Love it but why the nearly constant updates?"

    May 9, 2013  |   By sang-froid

    Version: Dropbox 2.1.13

    Pros

    I use this to transfer docs to my iPad and it works flawlessly.

    Cons

    I have no other app that requires as many updates, sometimes several per week! What is the deal? Cn't you update maybe once per month?

    Summary

    Reduce the updates!

    "A perfect piece of software"

    April 13, 2013  |   By Stuart Leitch

    Version: Dropbox 2.1.9

    Pros

    It's fast and reliable and it updates easily. It's great for users like me who don't understand technology—it just works.

    Cons

    No cons at all.

    Summary

    Get it and use it!

    "Repeated release?"

    April 8, 2013  |   By domrob

    Version: Dropbox 2.1.7

    Pros

    No apparent problems

    Cons

    Beta software

    Summary

    This version (2.1.7) was posted last week. Why is repeated today as if it's new? Also it should be made clear that this is a beta version of DropBox. The current version which can be downloaded on the DropBox website is still 2.05.

    "Awesome backup, synchronization, sharing tool and more"

    April 7, 2013  |   By mp-net

    Version: Dropbox 2.0.5

    Pros

    After simple installation this program requires no maintenance.
    Everything inside Dropbox folder is automatically backed up.
    Dropbox folder is automatically synchronized between all your computers.
    Access to all your files from Dropbox folder on cell phones and tablets (Android, iOS, BlackBerry).
    All your deleted and changed files are available for 30 days in the cloud, and can be easily recovered.

    Cons

    Only 2GB of cloud space for free, but can be increased to 16GB through referrals and other bonus programs if you don't want to update to paid version. (check referral link below)

    Summary

    When you create Dropbox account from the referral link below you will receive extra 500MB (2.5GB instead of 2GB) at the beginning:
    http://db .tt/12TTxBHt [remove space]
    Dropbox awards extra 500MB only after you install the program on your computer and connect it to your account created with referral link.

    Great program. I can't imagine my work without it any more. I have all my most important documents on my home computer in sub-folders of Dropbox. They automatically update on my Netbook and my computer at work when I open them. When I don't have any of my computers around me then I open my files on my cell phone.

    Recently I also started using automatic upload of pictures from my cell phone to Dropbox. Now I don't have to worry about connecting phone with computer through Bluetooth or USB cable any more.

    "Confusing number of updates makes me uneasy"

    April 5, 2013  |   By summerstormpictures

    Version: Dropbox 2.0.5

    Pros

    It works...or does it?

    Cons

    I've simply become confused as heck over why there are so many updates and why there's simply not an option to automatically do this right in the application. Welcome to the 21st century.

    Summary

    It works, plain and simple, but as another said before--get it done right the first time. I have never seen this many updates spew in such a short time. I have become uneasy and have begun to wonder why? What could go wrong? Was I at risk? I just don't feel confident and am thankful to have another backup solution running concurrently just in case.
