Very useful!

Regional Marketing Coordinator (Information Technology & Services company, 51-200 employees)
I've been using Dropbox for years, first in school and now at work. I've always loved the ability to collaborate that is afforded with the app. Great value - especially the free instance. Love that I can access my documents, pictures, etc. anywhere on any device!

Pros: Easy to use and provides access anywhere

Cons: Somewhat difficult to share with people who don't have DropBox - limited

Decent storage for free

Verified Reviewer  2 days ago

Business Development Representative (Computer Software company, 2-10 employees)
Dropbox is very simple and easy to use. Considering they give you a free version, you can actually store a decent amount of stuff on it. I wouldn't recommend pictures though with the free version. you will fill it up quick. I would use it more for documents.

Pros: Simple and easy to use. Good amount of storage for documents considering it is free.

Cons: Not a ton of storage in the free version for pictures.

Great for filesharing and cloud storage

Verified Reviewer  2 days ago

Tom Gerken, CTO at Panjo
I needed a way to not only backup my documents but also share them with other contacts and colleagues. Dropbox provides a simple way to do this! It is also good for sharing since most people are familiar with it and have it installed already.

Pros: Easy to set up, easy to manage

Cons: No drawbacks to using Dropbox

Best app for filesharing

Verified Reviewer  2 days ago

Max Perez, Photography Professional
Great app. Allows me to do everything from copying homework to storing pictures to make large file transfers. Never had a server problem or lost access to my content. Allows easy ways to increase storage. Allows me to share content with others. Has a mobile app as well as a desktop app that seamlessly interconnect with each other. Generally improves my way of life and I can definitively say I could not function day to day properly without it.

Pros: Great value, can easily use it with little to no money down. Great features. Great stability. Ease of use.

Cons: None that matter. Can't handle all filetypes but it's rare I run into one that can't be stored.

Great

Verified Reviewer  3 days ago

Consultant (Management Consulting company, 11-50 employees)
DropBox has been an invaluable tool for sharing large files with other people. Many pictures & other files are too big to email. Easy to use, even my friend who is NOT computer savvy was able to pick it up with very little trouble.

Pros: Easy to use, even for those who are not very computer savvy.

Cons: The pricing plan is confusing. Most DropBox users that I know think that the sizing limits are based on the owner of the DropBox, when in reality it is the combined space used for all DropBoxes you have access to, even if they are not your DropBoxes.

Simple cloud based storage solution

Verified Reviewer  4 days ago

Dave Benjamin, Air Charter Captain & President - Island Planet Sails
I love the simplicity of DropBox and how it acts just like a regular folder on my Mac. There really isn't much of a learning curve for this app and I've found it's simpler to use than Box. I should mention I'm not a techie.

Pros: I wish I could tick a box that said to ignore customer support rating as I've never had to contact them. The app is super simple and I keep all my documents on Dropbox so they're readily accessible from anywhere. What I really appreciate is the fact my computer could be destroyed and all I'd need is another computer and I'd be back in business.

Cons: Really no cons for what I'm doing with DropBox. What's not to like? I guess if they gave it away for free....LOL...It's reasonably priced IMHO.

GREAT Product

Verified Reviewer  4 days ago

Business Development Manager (Information Technology & Services company, 11-50 employees)
This is a product in where it makes file dumping and file sharing easy. It can work in your favor but if you have connected to your mobile device it can make things uncomfortable if personal stuff make it into the dropbox

Pros: Cloud based so it creates a filesharing and a file dump which can be access anywhere

Cons: if I have on my personal device it can sync some of personal data cant have both my personal and Biz account open simultaneously

Good tool for groups

Verified Reviewer  20th of May

Ellen McDowell, Social Media Consultant connecting small businesses in South Louisiana to each other and the world
I think that Dropbox is a good tool for file sharing. I have used it with many groups and find it is more stable than other sharing tools. It is easy to organize and share notes with one another.

Pros: Easy to use. Many people recognize.

Cons: Limits your storage.
