Featured Apps for Winter 2012

What follows is information distributed by the folks at Dropbox.  I'm not above repurposing someone else's information--especially when it strikes me as useful.  The only app I've tried in this bunch is CloudOn--but it works great for me.  Some of these apps require payment.  Sorry about that.  Not all the best things in life are free.  Read on...

Did you know that there are a bunch of iOS apps that work with your Dropbox? Whether you want to edit presentations on the go, or doodle while you're sitting through one, there's an app for you.

Featured Apps for September 2012



Ann Alexander sez: This is a free app only for the iPad (or Android tablets).  So far it looks and works so much like Word that it's almost unbelievable.  You must have a Dropbox, Google Drive or Box account (also free) as it integrates with them for storage.  This looks like a 5 star win!
Free from Google Play

Cloud Services


Here's a selection of useful cloud storage services.  Some of these provide embedded editing applications which makes them extra useful. 



This is the best known cloud service at the moment.  It's well-known because it works very well.  Set up an account and you can install a Windows application that tightly integrates Dropbox with your PC.  Android and iPad apps are available.  You start with a parsimonious 2 GB of free storage, but you can increase this by enlisting friends. It's also relatively expensive for additional storage.  100 GB will cost you $100.

Dropbox on iTunes

Dropbox on Google Play


Skydrive is Microsoft's entry into the cloud market.  You get an impressive 7 GB of free storage when you register. Plus added storage is inexpensive: 100 GB will cost you $50 annually.  An added bonus: Microsoft has browser based versions of the Office suite available for editing your documents on the run.  Very slick.

Google Drive

Google Drive is, of course, Google's contribution to the cloud market.  It's an adaptation of Google Docs. Editing tools are available in a browser.  5 GB free space.  Reasonable pricing for more space: 100 GB is $60.
