10 Tools for Getting the Most from Dropbox
This has also been posted at my Web 2.0 blog - Edtechtoolbox - some of these tools are cross platform.
This is a password protected online application created to help you set up a process for transferring files using Dropbox. The password is known only by you and your counterpart whom you wish to send documents or files to.
This is a photo sharing application available for both iPhone and Android users. Picplz let’s you manage photos and create interesting galleries which can be shared with ease. The service also provides features to let you create your own photo streaming through Dropbox.
A service hosted by Jotforms. It allows you to create online forms where people come, create documents or leave impressions, fill out form for you and then Dropbox Forms automatically synchronizes the content with your Dropbox account.
If you’re a big fan of the audio note-to-self but you’d like more flexibility than the iPhone’s default Voice Memos app, DropVox may be for you. It’s a simple audio-recording app that links with and uploads M4A recordings directly to your Dropbox account.
This is an advanced backup tool designed to help you save your important emails and conversations from your email account. When using MailDrop you can even choose which folder of your email you want to backup.
An easy and very secure way for Dropbox users around the world to request files from each other. All you have to do is to register, send a request and then the file will be uploaded to Dropbox and you have full access to the file.
This application will collect all attachments you receive on your email account and automatically synchronize them with your Dropbox. An easy way never to lose that assignment a students sent you.
If someone sends you a file which you are uncomfortable downloading to your own computer then URL Droplet will download the file to your Dropbox just by entering the URL in the box. This is a nice way to create another level of security.
ePubBooks is a marketplace where you can download eBooks and have them synchronised automatically to your Dropbox account.
