We use this app on our desktops and iPads. It integrated well with programs like Adobe PDF, so I can use it when I'm putting proposals together.

We use Dropbox to share files internally and with customers. The Mac integration makes it easy for us to set Dropbox as our default file storage location.

Works very well with other popular cloud applications. It can be difficult to access your account if you have been inactive for several months.

4/5

Dropbox continues to develop and improve with each upgrade. File sharing with this program is seamless, but tech support can be slow to respond to your questions.

Chase G.

2/5

Compared to the competition, Dropbox just seems too expensive for the very little that you get in return. Good for syncing files, but not very cost-effective for a business.

4/5

Thanks to Dropbox, I never lose files anymore because they are all in the same place. You may need to take some time to learn how to use the program, but it is very functional.
