My favorite exchange app

Verified Reviewer  5th of February 10:52

Evgeniy Tolmachev, Programmer at Bitshop
I am programmer, so using a lot of gadgets and PC for work. I am using a lot of tools to transfer file between them. Most winner is Dropbox. Files become larger, so I think about buying license.

Pros: + using on mobile and desktop + mac and pc ready + wide integration

Cons: - compared to other cloud storage providers, Dropbox becomes expensive for larger amounts of space

BEST BEST BEST for doc administration

Verified Reviewer  28th of January 04:44

Rosa del Pilar Bisteni, Renewable Energy Business Developer
Ive been using this app for 4+ years for 2 global companies I have to shear info with worldwide, personal purposes, share information with customers, colleagues, family... I even like the carousel for photos they're taking away! Imagine: I have almost 500Gb in my cell phone of information... it's all in the web, but PROTECTED! they even do my backups! Let's say that neither iCloud nor Drive nor Usend it compare with this one.

Pros: Easy, you can have your lifetime data on your cell phone.

Cons: .... you can't buy the business license for less than 5 people.

Industry Standard

Verified Reviewer  27th of January 23:06

Alan Davidson, Commercial Real Estate Investment Sales - Southern California and Arizona
With the Cloud becoming more of a necessary day-to-day tool, there's a wide range of choices for Cloud storage. I just cannot find a better one than Dropbox. Easy to use, easy to access and easy to share with associates. Reasonably priced. No reason to change as long as my data is secure and accessible.

Pros: Wide spread use, price point.

Cons: On line tutorial would be helpful. There may be one available now, but when I started there was just a written manual. Took a bit of time to get up to speed.

Excellent App

Verified Reviewer  27th of January 17:57

Diego Hidalgo Quirós, IT Consultant at IDTEC
Is a very good application , currently the integration with mobile devices is highly developed , which makes it one of the best options, but what they should improve are the storage options paid as 1TB possibly much , I think it should plans to create less space and more economical to suit competition

Pros: Integration Stability

Cons: Plans and Prices need more plans

My Go To Cloud

Verified Reviewer  27th of January 17:35

Joshua Auerbach, Social Media & Web Manager at The Culinary Institute of America
This is my go to cloud for many years. Never and issue or a problem. I used this for business and personal, mobile and desktop and without question this is my preferred cloud account!

Pros: Simple, easy and fast.

Cons: Maybe too simple? Could use some features.

Great for personal use, too expensive for business use

Verified Reviewer  27th of January 17:19

Digital Creative Director (Marketing and Advertising company, 51-200 employees)
I have personally used DB for a very long time. I am a Creative Director at an Ad Agency. I now use DB Pro for the added storage. DB for business seems like a great idea, but the amount per user and minimum of users prices out of our range. For personal and somewhat business use it is great. Love all of the integrations and touchpoints. Just wish there was a pay per use business model available.

Pros: DB is VERY easy to use. There are so many integrations that make its use across accounts, jobs, devices, etc easy peasy.

Cons: My major con is the pricing structure for DB for Business. I wish there was a pay per usage model ($/gb used) so businesses our size could use it more.

Great Collaboration Tool

Verified Reviewer  27th of January 17:12

Working Student Brand & Communications (Internet company, 51-200 employees)
Dropbox is a great collaboration tool that enables you to share easily your data with colleagues. Furthermore, it's almost free and can be used intuitively.

Pros: The basic version can be used for free.

Cons: There isn't a surrounding eco-system like it is offered by Google.

It works.

Verified Reviewer  27th of January 17:06

(Mining & Metals company, 11-50 employees)
I prefer Drive due to the fact I use android mobile devices and gmail but for what I have used it for I don't have any complaints. I wouldn't pay for it, there are better pay clouds out there .

Pros: It works for what I have used it for.

Cons: None that I have come across.
