Dropbox is a cloud storage service that helps users sync documents, music, pictures and photos. This service is one of the most widely used on the internet and users can view their documents regardless of the device they are using. Dropbox offers 2GB free but those who would use more storage capacity would have to pay. However, in order to get the best out of it, here are some tips you can adopt.
- Extra Storage Space
For extra storage space without pay, Dropbox offers up to 500MB to users that refer a friend to the service and 125MB for tweeting the cloud service @Dropbox or @DropboxSupport.
- Blog Hosting
If you do not fancy using either Blogspot or WordPress as your domain, you can use Dropbox to temporarily host your website. To do so, simply create and design a fast and fairly good website with Pancake.io and then synchronise with Dropbox.
- Share Large Files and Folders
If you want to send large files using your email, you will receive an alert from your email client that the files are too large. Dropbox users are given an alternative to using Dropbox to send the files no matter how big they may be thus they can send large files using Dropbox via email. There is now Dropbox for Gmail. Simply download the Dropbox for Gmail extension.
- Sales Delivery
Organizations can use Dropbox to transact businesses and make delivery without actually meeting the buyer. Some of the files this applies to are Mp3 and Mp4 files, images, and ebooks. If you are a seller, after receiving payment for any of the aforementioned files, send the Dropbox link of the Mp3 file or ebook to the buyer who in turn will download the files by using the link.
- Sync iTunes Library
For music lovers, you can sync the songs in your iTunes library with Dropbox. This will allow you access your songs anywhere and from any device. To make this possible, you should copy or move your iTunes folder to your Dropbox.
