Quick and Easy

Verified Reviewer  15th of August

JP Jones, Owner/Co-Owner - Design, Web Design, Marketing
Finding a quick and easy way to share large concept files was tough for a designer - then Dropbox came onto the scene. It's made collaboration and file transfer with clients something I no longer have to dread and block out excessive time for.

Pros: Have your files . . . anywhere. The fact that your files will sync from device to device is a huge pro for Dropbox.

Cons: If you are opening a device or laptop on a limited strength of internet, be sure to cut off syncing or it can suck down your data in a hurry!

This is a perfect tool to keep track of information and to be able to share with several people.

Super easy and convenient.

Carolyn Franjko, Owner, MJ Business Solutions
Love the ease of sharing files with clients. I can invite them to a folder, we share information easily and ALL of my shared files are in one place. It is also convenient if I need to back up files when on-site I don't need a flash drive...I just upload it to Dropbox.

Pros: Easy and free with added storage available when you invite people to use Dropbox or for purchase.

Cons: None that I have seen so far.

Ease of sharing across OS's

Verified Reviewer  29th of July

Dropbox is easy to use. Very easy for the person on the receiving end: they just open the email and click, and it takes them to the folder you want them to see.

Pros: The desktop integration

Cons: I wish there was a badge showing the other people sharing the folder that someone is using a particular file in it.

Great Software

Verified Reviewer  25th of July

Kobus Lombard, Operations Manager at Allegiance Projects South Africa
Very good to share, collaborate and securely manage files that are accessible from anywhere. My files and photos are securely saved and can be accessed from my pc, tablet, phone or any internet connected device. Simple and effective way for your information to travel with you all the time.

Pros: Easy to use, fast, light, and great for work and pleasure.

Cons: The only disadvantage I have found is that not everyone is using it. The sign-up process for shared folders should be a more simplified.
