Default LIST of DropBox Compatible Apps (FileScout, Docs-To-Go, etc)

Please Login to Remove!

Ever since I prodded Matthias (of emacberry) to successfully add Dropbox support to FileScout, there seems to be a growth of interest with using Dropbox with a BlackBerry. So, here's a list of applications with Dropbox feature:

Dropbox native BlackBerry app
https://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php...198&replies=11
...NOTE: Browsing and manipulation of Dropbox account filesystem, as well as limited upload/download features. Does not download arbitrary upload/download of files not already associated to a BlackBerry app.

FileScout 2.5 or newer
Homepage of FileScout
...type goo.gl/4beh2 into your BlackBerry browser for easier download.
...NOTE: With paid version you can download/upload ANY file to/from your BlackBerry memory/SD card!

Documents-To-Go
https://www.dropbox.com/apps/64/documents-to-go
...NOTE: Premium paid version appears to be needed to gain Dropbox integration. It allows you to edit Office files on your Dropbox account!

SafeWallet
Homepage of SafeWallet
...NOTE: Password wallet, that also backs up an encrypted backup to dropbox! So your passwords are safe even if you lose your BlackBerry.

NOTE -- Don't know what Dropbox is? -- for those who don't know what Dropbox is -- it's online space that has gotten rave reviews by lots of people (google the reviews). It provides 2 gigabytes of free online space that can connect from PC and Mac's, as well as BlackBerries and iDevices too! Get a free Dropbox account -- this referral link gives you 250MB extra free space too for 2.25GB instead of 2GB). Good for online backup and/or optionally sharing files, as well as synchronization between your home computers -- it also even has LAN sync when the machines are connected locally so you can keep a copy of the same folder tree on all your PC/Mac/laptops, and take your desktop's work with you on your laptop, very super-conveniently without needing to manually copy files back and fourth... And before you come home, your edits on laptop is already back on your desktop...

Here's another useful utility that works great on BlackBerries:

Dropbox Email
https://www.dropbox.com/apps/6093/dropbox-email
Allows you to email attachments directly to Dropbox. You forward your email (with its attachments) to a special email address and then attachments gets automatically saved into a folder on your Dropbox!
