DropBox Comes to iPad

by Marianne Schultz
 

The app for DropBox, a popular online file storage, sharing, and backup service, hit the App Store yesterday in universal format, adding compatibility with the iPad.

In addition to offering on-the-go access to files stored in a DropBox account, the updated app also takes advantage of the iPad’s file sharing feature, allowing users to export documents stored in a DropBox account to other apps that also use the file sharing feature. For example, we are able to send documents stored within DropBox to PrintCentral, an app we previously reviewed that also uses the file sharing feature in iPhone OS 3.2 for the iPad.

DropBox is a free app. The company offers varying levels of service, with a free account offering 2GB of storage all the way up to 100GB of storage for $19.99/month.
