Dropbox

Sometime last year I noticed Dropbox had been downloaded to one of the library’s PCs (people you can’t do this)! Intrigued, I decided to find out more. Now, I’m hooked and hardly ever use a flash drive. I have Dropbox on my PC at work and on my Mac at home. Dropbox is a very convenient tool for syncing up all kinds of documents across platforms and devices (iPhone, iPads, and Androids).

What’s nice about Dropbox is that you don’t really have to download it to every PC or Mac you use – it works just as well by going to dropbox.com and logging into your account. And, it’s super easy to upload and add files. Although, it’s possible to print documents right out of Dropbox (as with Google docs) best practices are to download to the desktop, and then do what you need to do, before hitting the print icon.
