Nearly all of us have smartphones these days, plus some form of cloud storage as a backup solution. However, we’ve really only just reached the point were lots of apps are being written with integration to cloud storage in mind. Because of this, you may not have realised that quite a few very useful apps have popped up with integrated Dropbox syncing. We’ll be covering some of the best of these today.
Recently we covered the 10+ best apps for your Dropbox, but we deliberately didn’t mention any of the great mobile apps for Dropbox. That’s because there are just so many fantastic mobile apps out there for use with Dropbox that it was worth making a list just for mobile.
1. The Dropbox App [Android / iOS]
It goes without saying that if you love Dropbox you should grab the official app for your smartphone device. Get the Android app or the iOS application for free.
2. CamScanner [Android / iOS]
CamScanner lets you take photos of receipts, white boards and more, then auto-enhance and crop so that you have a scanned-quality image. It’s got auto-sync capabilities for Dropbox and other cloud storage so you can keep your scanned documents backed up easily. We’ve covered CamScanner in detail before here. Get CamScanner for Android or iPhone for a free trial or $4.99 for the full version.
3. Documents To Go [iOS]
Documents To Go has been around since the glory days of the Palm Pilot and has continued to improve and adapt their applications since then. Their iOS application has Dropbox integration included as well as Google Docs and other cloud services. The Android version doesn’t yet claim to have Dropbox integration, but it’s surely on the cards.
4. QuickOffice Pro [Android / iOS]
QuickOffice Pro is yet another office documents editor, so you’ll probably want to choose just one. QuickOffice Pro lets you edit all of your regular office suite documents, plus annotate PDF files. Syncs to many forms of cloud backup, including Dropbox. Get your copy of QuickOffice Pro for Android or iPhone for a little over $10.
5. 1Password [Android / iOS]
1Password is a popular password manager which syncs your password information across devices securely. Dropbox can also be used as an option for backing up your password details. 1Password is available free for Android or iPhone.
6. BoxCryptor [Android / iOS]
If you’re keen to keep your documents extra secure, then encryption is the way to go. BoxCryptor is one of many web-based encryption services for Dropbox, but it also has fantastic apps for use on Android and iOS devices in order to keep documents encrypted and usable on all of your devices. We’ve covered BoxCryptor in detail before.
7. Todo.txt Touch [Android / iOS]
Todo.txt Touch is the simplest, most elegant To-Do list solution for your mobile device and desktop. All your data is stored in a simple .txt file and synced across devices via Dropbox. Despite the file’s simplicity, the app still manages to offer task prioritisation and other primary to-do list functions. Grab the application for iOS or Android now.
8. DropSpace [Android]
If you want to automatically sync photos from your phone to your Dropbox or get music from your computer to your phone just by putting it in your Dropbox, DropSpace is the perfect app to make it a little bit easier. What DropSpace does is automatically sync any given Android folders with your Android Dropbox folder when and how you wish.
