Dropbox for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / May 31, 2014

Dropbox for Mac is a convenient cloud storage system that lets you access your files on any computer with an Internet connection. Installing the app is quick and easy, and you can set up a free account to try out the program to see if it's a good fit.

Pros

Smooth integration: This app integrates seamlessly with your Mac, and you can access it directly at any time through the icon on the top toolbar. You can also open any of the Dropbox files on your computer through your Mac's Finder feature. And when you want to save an item to Dropbox, all you have to do is select it as the location from the drop-down menu in the Save window.

Access from anywhere: When you have files saved in a Dropbox account, you can access them from any computer or mobile device with an Internet connection. Even if the Dropbox app isn't installed on the device you're using, you can log in to your account on the Dropbox Web site and find your files that way.

Cons

Dashboard interface: Once Dropbox is installed on your Mac, there really is no dashboard-type interface you can access without going on the Dropbox Web site. While this doesn't have to be a major drawback, it can be a bit of an inconvenience for users who prefer that type of interface.

Bottom Line

Dropbox for Mac is straightforward to use and makes sharing your files with others or accessing them remotely easier than ever. When you open a Dropbox account, you'll get up to 2GB of storage for free. You can earn up to 16GB more, also for free, by referring friends to the service. And if you need even more space, upgrading to a Pro account gets you 100GB or more of storage with rates starting at $9.99 per month.
