I was only introduced to Dropbox fairly recently, and right away I was fascinated by it. The idea of having your data accessible from anywhere is typical cloud that seems to be all the rage these days. Not only that though, but the seamless syncing of files impressed me most. All my most used files being accessible from multiple PCs is great, but can I have Dropbox on my Nokia N900?
Well, apparently my N900 can play along, and it really does make sense, being a mobile PC. All those other phones wouldn’t know what to do with this kind of power!
To use DropN900, all you need is a N900, and a Dropbox account (I would never have guessed). DropN900 works perfectly from the get go, once pointed to an account you can access all of your lovely files wherever you are. You are even able to upload files, and do a full sync. I had a minor issue with the syncing as it kept telling me I needed a WLAN, even while I was connected to one. That was swiftly fixed by simply unchecking that option. It also appears that there is no seamless syncing of files like what occurs on the PC, which I don’t mind too much as it would simply eat away at my precious resources. If I need to access my Dropbox, I can easily just run the app.
With Dropbox being free for 2GB of storage, it’s a fun thing to play around with, and may just come in handy. Don’t we all have a few files that we would rather off our hard disks and accessible anytime?
