There are a number of smartphone users who would like make use of file cloud storage. If this is the case, then Dropbox is for you. The app is available on the Apple App Store for devices like the iPhone 4, the Android Market for devices like the Samsung Galaxy S2, and on the Blackberry App World for devices like the Torch. It allows users to download, upload, and share anything stored on your cloud locker from your handset. Now, the app comes preloaded with the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc and Play. The bad news is it’s available in only 10 countries. The good news is the UK is one of them. Japan gets the best deal of all. Japan’s network operator Softbank will be giving its customers 1GB of storage on top of the 2 GB already allotted.
For those who are not familiar with the application, it allows users to sync with their desktop and smartphones via a sharing folder on each device. Uploading and downloading will require users to logon to their private account on Dropbox. The app allows users to share files with friends. All the user has to do is grant their friends access to the cloud service.
It’s nice to have a service exclusive to a limited number of countries other than the US for a change. All the other unique services such as Google Music Beta, Google Wallet, and online discounts that work like coupons Google Offers can only be used by US customers for now. Although, it’s available on the Apple App Store, the Android Market, and the Blackberry App World if you do not own one of the XPERIA handsets or for anyone living anywhere else. If you’re looking for more than 2 GB of cloud locker space, there is an option to get 50 GB more for $9.99 (a little bit over £5.00) a month or $99.00 (a little bit over £56.00) a year.
