Dropbox is the iOS companion app to the free Dropbox Web service and desktop software. If you have Dropbox set up on your Mac, this app lets you sync, share, and download files and folders from your computer using your iPhone or iPad.

The Dropbox mobile app basically gives you another interface for accessing your Dropbox folder, a local folder that you set up on your Mac. Anything you put in that folder, you can see on your iPhone or iPad. The interface gives you tools to view the file (surprisingly quickly, and without losing quality even with MP3s and video files), open the file in another app (particularly useful on an iPad outfitted with other productivity apps), or share the file (either by e-mailing a link, or by copying a link to your clipboard). You can also "favorite" a file to save it to your device for offline viewing. (Since your Dropbox folder could be as large as 100GB, the app doesn't automatically download all of it.) Dropbox can view a broad range of file types, from common image and text formats to Microsoft Office files and Keynote presentations.

The Dropbox mobile app doesn't do everything--for instance, it would be nice to add and edit files from inside the app--and performance isn't always reliable with large files. That said, Dropbox is an extremely easy and free way to access and share files from your Mac, and if you're already using Dropbox on your Mac, this is a must-download.

Developer's Description

Dropbox lets you back up photos and videos, and access files stored on any of your computers or mobile devices--from anywhere. And with advanced sharing features, it's easy to send any file, large or small, to anyone.

Features:
  • Automatically back up the photos and videos in your camera roll--all in the background.
  • Access any file in your account--even offline--and preview over 175 file types, no special software required.
  • Easily share large files by copying and pasting a link you can send to anyone, even if they don't have a Dropbox account.
  • Scan documents using your camera, and turn receipts, documents, whiteboards, and notes into PDFs.
Sign up now for your free Dropbox Plus trial. You'll have room for all your files, and space to spare, with 2,000 GB of storage. Our latest sync technology can automatically move stale items off your computer and to the cloud. And Dropbox Rewind lets you roll back any file, folder, or your entire account, up to 30 days.

Or, existing Plus customers can upgrade to Dropbox Professional. With 3 TB (3,000 GB), you can store all your stuff--from work projects to personal photos--and have space to spare. You and your clients can comment on most file types without leaving Dropbox. And you can protect your work with a watermark, add shared link controls, or rewind your account up to 180 days.

Before starting a trial or completing payment, you'll see the plan price. This amount will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase and on renewal and will vary by plan and country. Dropbox subscriptions renew monthly or yearly, depending on your plan. Your account will charged for renewal 24 hours before the end of your current billing period. To avoid auto-renewal, turn it off in at least 24 hours before your subscription renews. You can turn off auto-renewal anytime time from your iTunes account settings. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase.
