My Experience with Dropbox
This changed the way I worked with clients. I owe a lot to Dropbox. Now I could send development links instead of uploading to a temp site, emailing big .pdfs, etc… Earning 2GB per referral was nice too, almost became a game. To this day, I have 20 or so people crestfallen over my movie folder no longer being updated.
I was completely gaga over having my office computer sync to my home computer, me saving an Illustrator document only to have my colleague have a fresh version in his folder. Heaven.
- Integration with everything like OSX, Squarespace, most team productivity tools, etc… This comes with being a global standard.
- Live links, even .html instead of using a test server to send clients.
- Slows computer down
- Prone to sync loops where I've seen it sync for 2 days
- Got to pay to play which is fair. 2GB for free, $9.95/1 TB
All-in-all, Dropbox is a necessary tool for cloud services, experience, longevity and ease make this a hallmark in a competitive industry.
