Dropbox for iOS
Use this tool to backup, share and synchronise your files

Modern technology enables a team to operate in different locations across your company and the world. If you’re a software developer, there’s no reason why you couldn’t pick the best programmers based in Germany, document writers from the UK, whilst your graphic artists could be based in the States.

The problem is bringing these people together. You need a system where your team or teams can share files and information, make sure that no-one overwrites someone else’s work and keep a collection of previously updated files, so you can quickly reverse back to a previous revision, if necessary. Doing this on your website requires you have the relevant versioning technology and that it will work across various operating systems. A versioning tool that works fine on Windows may not be suitable for OS X.

Dropbox is an online sharing tool that enables you to select the files you want to share and synchronise with other users, then simply upload them to the remote site. That bit is done automatically, so you don’t need to worry about having to upload the files manually. You can share folders and collaborate with other users on the files within these folders. Versioning will stop work being overwritten.

You can just use Dropbox on a personal level, too. If you own a desktop computer at home, use another at work and a laptop when you’re away from the office, simply use Dropbox to synchronise your important files across each machine. You can also access your DropBox files from the web, if you need access from a temporary host PC.

It’s not quite as effective as, say, SugarSync, which will attempt to synchronise documents from your Windows ‘My Documents’ folder to the relevant Documents folder on your Mac, and vice-versa.

Dropbox will limit you to 2GB of free online storage (and you can purchase more, if required) and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

The download here is for the iOS version.

What's New in Version 62.3

What’s new:
• Home: When you start the app, you can now see more than just recent files. The new home screen also shows pending uploads, notifications, starred items, and Dropbox Paper docs, too.
• Stars: Star any file or folder, and it’ll show up on your home screen. It’s perfect when you need to get back to something in a snap.
• Hide recent items: Don’t want recent items showing up on your home screen? You can now hide this section by going to your settings.
• Sketch previews: For our design-loving friends, you can now preview Sketch files in Dropbox—no fancy plugins or gizmos required.

What’s fixed:
• Stuck in time: In some languages, a few timestamps weren’t getting updated. We traveled back in time and got that fixed.
• Crafty cursor: When editing text files, the cursor would sometimes play hide-and-seek. We found the cursor and told it to stop hiding.
• Odd characters: Some text files were showing up with garbled characters. We unscrambled the characters, and they should be back to normal now.

We release updates regularly, and we’re always looking for ways to make things better. If you have any feedback or run into issues, come find us in our forums. We’re happy to help!

Verdict:

Promising tool for enabling you to backup your files online, synchronise across your various computers and even share with other users

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
