How to start and stop Dropbox photos syncing to your Samsung Galaxy S5

One of the nice features in the Samsung Galaxy S5 gallery app is Dropbox photo syncing. If Dropbox is your chosen destination for photo storage in the cloud there’s every chance you’ll love this. It’s also a feature bound in frustration for some, since it seems to be able to enable itself automatically once you’re signed into Dropbox on your phone – or at least that’s how it went down for us.

Thankfully turning it on and off is a simple process so long as you know where to look. As is turning it back on again if you decide you do want it. Head on past the break to see how.

Apple takes on Dropbox with iCloud Drive

Apple’s slowly improved iCloud since it transitioned from MobileMe, but this year, it’s getting a serious upgrade. On stage at WWDC 2104, Apple’s SVP of Software Craig Federighi introduced us to a better way to manage files with the new iCloud Drive. With Drive, all of your iCloud files are available right inside Finder, letting you access documents and media wherever you are on your Mac. Because they’re on iCloud, they’re automatically auto-synced across devices and are fully searchable and taggable. You will, of course, need OS X Yosemite to take advantage of Finder support, but Apple hopes you’ll ditch Dropbox’s and Google’s services in favor of Drive’s deep OS support. As expected, iOS 8 will also include iCloud Drive functionality, letting you to work with a single version of a document on all of your devices (which surprisingly includes Windows machines).

Pocket Premium Subscription Introduced, Strives to be Dropbox of Web Content

With as many screens as we have connected to the Internet at any given time, we need a convenient way to move content across them quickly and easily. Pocket, formerly Read It Later, wants to be the first name you think of when that comes to mind. Today, the company announced a premium service of its already great offering, giving users more options when deciding where they want to consume their content.

Available on Google Play today, Pocket Premium gives users the ability to search the web, then auto-tag stories and content that they save with Pocket. Premium even provides a permanent archive for those links as well. A few years down the road, when you are looking for the cooking recipe that you saved, it will still be there even if the link has long gone from the web.

In a survey of Pocket users, this archive feature was requested “off the charts” by its users, so they gladly delivered.

Access to these premium features comes at a cost, though. Pocket Premium will run you $5 a month, but if you want to do a yearly subscription to save some money, it will be $42. If you are ready to start building your library of links and content that will be around for the rest of your years, check out Pocket in Google Play below.

Todoist gets Google Drive and Dropbox integration as well as native file support

Todoist

If you’re a Todoist user, you’re about to get a few nice upgrades that should help you stay on top of sharing and managing files. The company announced that they are bringing both Google Drive and Dropbox integration, plus support for managing and adding native files.

If you’re a free user that’s previously shared a project with other users, you’ll be able to attach images, spreadsheets, documents, etc. directly from Google Drive and Dropbox from within Todoist. Unfortunately, they’re restricting that feature from users that haven’t shared any projects.

If you’re not the type to deal with files stored in the cloud, Todoist is also getting support for adding files directly from your Android device, including pictures and other files.

To celebrate these new features, Todoist is even knocking 30% off of the price of their app and subscription fees, so now’s a great time to look into how Todoist can help you be more productive.

Todoist introduces Google Drive, Dropbox, and local file attachments

Premium users of Todoist will be greeted by a very welcome update today. The cross-platform todo service has added a new feature that brings it a bit closer to something like Evernote: file attachments.

It might be both strange and yet natural to think of attaching documents, images, and whatnot to a todo item. At most, some, like Any.do, would just let you append text notes. But Todoist isn’t just your regular todo list. It wants to be the be all and end all of collaborative task and now document management services that tries to include anything and everything you’ll ever need to accomplish your mission.

Now with the new notes features, users will be able to add not just text, but photos, recorded audio files, and, on Android and iOS, any file you can grab from your smartphone or tablet. And you don’t even have to be limited to local files. Todoist has integrated with Google Drive and Dropbox so that you can affix your documents and other digital items that are stored in the cloud.

Now for the big catch. This new notes feature is available only to Premium subscribers. It is also available to free users but only within the context of shared projects. To tempt new users to jump in, Todoist is offering a 30 percent discount so that you’ll end up paying only $20 for your first year, after which you’ll need to cough up the regular $29 annually to stay with the elite crowd. Better make up your mind fast, though, as the offer is only good for another 36 hours.

Todoist 4.0 Introduces Native File Uploading Support, Audio Note Recording, Dropbox/Google Drive Integration, And More

Todoist-Thumb

Today Todoist has rolled out an update for its Android app that introduces the ability to attach files to notes natively. This includes data stored locally, along with audio recordings created on the fly. More appropriately for a cloud-based to-do list service, the app can also pull files directly from Dropbox or Google Drive. To give it a go, just hit the paper clip icon when creating a new note.

The Dropbox and Google Drive integration is included in the free version of the app, but a premium account is required to access the remaining new features.

Dropbox issues patch to avoid any abuse of shared links security flaw

dropbox_app_icon_new

Before you could even be affected (to their knowledge), Dropbox has already fixed a security flaw. In a company blog post, Dropbox informed users that they found a security flaw coming from shared links through third-party websites. The issue comes from a third-party website’s access to referer headers when links are posted. But because of this, the links “can be inadvertently disclosed to unintended recipients.”

So for now, Dropbox has shutdown shared links that provide access to a user’s documents. And over the next few days, access will be restored after being verified.

Here is the method of attack according to Dropbox:

  • A Dropbox user shares a link to a document that contains a hyperlink to a third-party website.
  • The user, or an authorized recipient of the link, clicks on a hyperlink in the document.
  • At that point, the referer header discloses the original shared link to the third-party website.
  • Someone with access to that header, such as the webmaster of the third-party website, could then access the link to the shared document.

Microsoft OneDrive App Updated To v2.5 With Sorting, Sharing, And Other Things It Probably Should Have Already Had

cMicrosoft’s recently renamed OneDrive cloud storage platform doesn’t get as much love as Dropbox, but it’s a solid system that’s built right into Windows. The Android app has been getting some attention as of late, and the most recent update seems to have finally made it a capable cloud file manager.

1 2 3

Here’s the changelog for version 2.5, and yes, apparently these features were missing until now.

  • Share files by inviting people, sending a link, or sending files to another app
  • Select multiple files to download
  • Move files and folders
  • Sort files and folders
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

It’s not only easier to find files now with sorting, but you can move and share them.

Top 5 Android Apps: April 2014

Top 5 Android Apps: April 2014

A number of quality apps have come our way this past month, including new offerings from giants Google and Dropbox. We also saw a bunch of hot new icon packs, a couple of which that hit our personal Halls of Fame. Overall, though, this month has been a great one in the regard of apps, with some even being called must-installs.

With that said, we always narrow them down to our top 5. Here are the best apps of April 2014. 

1. Mailbox: (Play Link – free)

Though, for the longest time, Gmail was our email client of choice on Android, we had an eye on the Mailbox iOS app. The app has finally made its way over to our platform of choice, much to our pleasure, and we have liked it for the most part. The UI is intuitive when compared to Gmail’s rather uninspired offering, and it has let us crunch through the thousands of emails we receive on a weekly basis. However, privacy aficionados, this one may not be for you. The app uses Dropbox’s servers to check your email, so if you are uncomfortable with that, you will have to look elsewhere. If you are a fan of the “Inbox Zero” movement, or simply need a little change in your life, go check Mailbox out.

2. IFTTT: (Play Link – free)

Have you ever had the urge to set up interesting connections between services, but without the hassle of either coding it yourself or finding a developer to do it for you? IFTTT was made for you. Want new Droid Life articles to go straight to Pocket? Check. How about notifications for said articles? Or texting your mom every time you Tweet something out? Check, and check.

IFTTT is a powerful tool that will let it all happen, including without much hassle thanks to a newly released Android app. The app brings some Android-specific channels with it too, including notifications (in case you do not want to use Pushbullet for that), and makes sharing recipes simpler. If you have not tried IFTTT out yet, there has been no better time to do so.

3. UpTo: (Play Link – free)

We have seen no drought on Android in terms of great calendar solutions. Despite Google’s not-terrible offering, there are apps like Cal and Today which have stepped up to the plate. UpTo looks to take the traditional calendar app and add to it with a layer letting you see others’ calendars. Let me explain — you will have your regular calendars – regardless of which service you prefer for hosting these – then you will have the ability to subscribe to other calendars and view them in-line with yours. Trying to stay on top of the NBA Playoffs, cell phone releases, or the lunar calendar? You are in luck.

And, if you would like to just keep Portland Trail Blazers games on your personal calendar so you can get notifications for them, you can simply swipe to the right to move them to your personal planner. This all comes for free, as an added bonus.

 

4. Google Camera: (Play Link – free)

The AOSP camera app has always sucked; that’s a fact. Though a lot of us have ventured to third-party apps, Google has finally hit us with their own revamped option. Google Camera, available for all Android devices that are on Kit Kat (Nexus or not), will make your picture taking experience better, with a clean interface and fairly good results. Google has also jumped on the 2014 bokeh trend, adding in a Lens Blur option to the Camera for when you want to bring the background of an image out of focus.

The app, just like every other app made by Google on Android, is free. Check out our video demonstration of it down below.

 


5. Carousel: (Play Link – free)

Dropbox’s other app announcement of the month was for Carousel, a gallery app connected to the cloud storage service. Carousel looks to store all of your life’s memories into one place, and touts the fact that you don’t have to live with your phone’s storage limitations anymore. It will back everything up to your Dropbox account and provide you with a nice view of all of your pictures from both the cloud and your phone. It will even make it simple to share events with friends and family.

If you were looking for a new way to organize your photos through the ages in the cloud, and our own Ron Offringa’s Drive Autosync option for Google Drive isn’t cutting it, at least give Carousel a try.

Best Android apps from April 2014

best apps

Another month is just about in the books, which means it’s time to look back at all the apps that were launched. April was a very good month for app releases. Some were long-awaited, others were complete surprises, but many of them were awesome. With all of these new apps coming out it’s easy to miss some of the best ones. We have compiled a list of the best and most popular apps to launch in April. Make sure you didn’t miss any of them.

Click app title for download link

Automatic

automatic

The sad truth is that most cars don’t integrate with our phones very well, if at all. Automatic aims to change that. This app works with a dongle that can be plugged into your car. It keeps track of tons of data and makes it all available in the app for you to see. Things like explanations for the “check engine” light, your car’s location, miles per gallon, and more is available. The app is free, but the dongle is $99.

Carousel by Dropbox

carousel

The first of two apps from Dropbox on this list is Carousel. This app is a fancy way to show off photos and videos from your Dropbox account. It’s a social expirience, too. Photos and videos can be grouped into events, and people can leave private comments. Dropbox intends it to be a way to relive memorable moments after they happen. The app is free to use, but it does require a Dropbox account (free or paid).

CCleaner

ccleaner-android

One of the best apps available for keeping Windows PCs clean and fast is CCleaner. Recently they released their Android app for beta testing. This app will optimize browser history, application cache and clipboard. Clean call logs and SMS messages individually, in bulk, by age or by contact. Reclaim storage space by quickly removing unwanted applications, and much more. Join the community to download the app for free.

CloudCaster

cloudcaster

Most of the standard streaming services have started to support the Chromecast. This is great, but if you’re looking to use other services you are out of luck. CloudCaster supports 23 different services, plus local content, and DLNA files. Right now the only way to stream from SugarSync or Copy is CloudCaster. The app is speedy, easy to use, and great for streaming a bunch of stuff to your Chromecast.

Chrome Remote Desktop

chrome remote desktop thumb

Remote desktop software can be tricky to set up and use. Google is doing their part to combat that with Chrome Remote Desktop. This app allows you to control any PC that has the Chrome Remote Desktop extension installed. Set-up takes about two minutes and you will be on your way to remotely controlling your PC. If you use Chrome on your PC this is an easy download.

Fenix

fenix

The latest Twitter app with all the buzz is Fenix. After being in beta for a few months the app was finally made officially available in April. Fenix offers a beautiful design with tons of features for hardcore users. Lists, TweetMarker support, photo previews, muting, themes, and multiple accounts are all there. What won’t be there is ads, since this app costs $2.50. The price may seem steep, but it will likely keep Fenix up and running longer.

FireChat

FireChat thumb

 

FireChat is a very interesting new app. This messaging service allows you to chat with nearby people, but it doesn’t require an internet connection. Instead it uses “mesh network technology” to connect with nearby users of WiFi Direct and Bluetooth. This means you can only talk to people within a 30-foot radius. Now that is a much more social network. FireChat is completely free and tons of fun when you’re in a public place.

Frontback

frontback

If you like taking selfies and Instagram photos this app is the perfect combination. Frontback allows you to quickly take a photo with the front and back camera on your device. The result is two photos stitched together, one from your point of view and the other of your face. These photos can be used to show an emotion, something you are doing, or any number of things. It’s a fun app and you can get it for free.

Google Camera

google camera

Google has once again stripped a core component from Android and made it available in the Play Store. This month they released Google Camera for KitKat devices. This is a redesigned version of the camera app that comes on Nexus devices. Google made the UI simpler, added a cool Lens Blur feature, and made it just plain better overall. If you have a KitKat device it’s definitely worth a download.

Hover Browser

Hover Browser screen shots

In our list of best apps for March we mentioned Link Bubble. This great app allows you to load web pages in the background and then view it without leaving the current app. The only downside to the app is that it costs $5. Hover Browser does many of the same things as Link Bubble, but for only $1. It’s not as polished or smooth as Link Bubble, but if you’re cheap it’s a nice option.

 

IFTTT

ifttt

Earlier this month IFTTT (if this then that) beta for Android was briefly available. A couple of weeks later it officially arrived in the Google Play Store. This app can help you automate many different things. With the Android app the service can do location-aware tasks and change things on your phone such as ringtone volume. You can also do may other tasks that don’t need a device. If you’ve never checked out IFTTT now is the time.

Mailbox by Dropbox

Mailbox for Android

Dropbox finally brought their popular iOS email app to Android this month. Mailbox is a 3rd-party app that can work with your Gmail and iCloud accounts. Some of the notable features include swipeable gesture, the ability to snooze emails, and the app supposedly learns about your email behavior the more you use the app. If you’re unhappy with the stock email apps, and want to try something new, Mailbox deserves a look.

Retrica

retrica

Another popular iOS photo app arrived in the Play Store this month. Retrica, a popular selfie app with tons of filters, is now available on Android. Retrica has a very nice minimal UI and easy to use features. There are tons of apps that do what Retrica does, but it has some advantages. While other photo editing apps go overboard with options Retrica keeps things simple, and it’s completely free.

Watchup

watchup

Who has time to sit down and watch the news for an hour? Not many people do anymore. Watchup is a new app that aims to curate a newscast just for you that can be viewed on your own time. Simply choose your areas of interest, pick a time for your newscast to be published, and then wait. Every day at the desired time you will get a list of stories and videos that you can navigate through. Watchup is free from Google Play.

Xbox One SmartGlass beta

XboxOne SmartGlass Android

If you’re looking to try out new features before everyone else, and you own an Xbox One, this is the app for you. Microsoft released a beta version of Xbox One SmartGlass this month. With this app you will get early access to features. One cool feature that has been included is the ability to change TV channels like a real remote. You can get in on the beta for free if you’re interested.

That’s a wrap! Tell us which apps were your favorites from this month! Also, let us know if we missed any. There are may great apps being released each day. It’s impossible to include them all.

Mailbox gets action buttons on notifications

Dropbox has recently pushed out an update to its Mailbox app on Android that adds a little new feature. These three buttons on email notifications may seem quite insubstantial, but they can potentially ease a user’s workflow by reducing the amount of taps required to take action on a new message.

Action buttons on notifications are definitely nothing new on Android. But since Mailbox is still a newcomer to the platform, it understandable that it would experience some growing pains. With the update, Mailbox notifications will now let users quickly deal with mail as they come. You can either archive a mail, snooze it, or reply to it immediately, even without opening the main app before hand. This actually follows the GTD (Getting Things Done) productivity mantra, which Mailbox is an adherent of, when dealing with incoming stuff. Either you act on it, in which case you reply, if it takes less than two minutes to do so, file it away if you have no use for it, or defer it for later when you have more time to spend on it.

It’s a subtle change that can mean a lot for Mailbox users, though it will probably not work so well when email arrives in bulk. Then you will simply see a list in the notifications panel, requiring you to open up the app anyway. Of course, it still doesn’t address our biggest gripes with the whole system, particularly the lack of support for Gmail labels, but that’s unlikely to change given that it might interfere with Mailbox’s entire paradigm.

Mailbox by Dropbox adds action buttons to email notifications

Action buttons are great for email and now, Mailbox has them too

Although there certainly hasn’t been a lot of updates as of yet for Dropbox’s email client otherwise known as Mailbox there is a notable one filtering through the Google Play store right now. It’s a simple one but also one that will be welcomed by many as it’s a pretty core feature to have included. What is it? Well, it’s action buttons for email notifications that allow you to archive, snooze and reply from the notifications.

Mailbox (From Dropbox) Updated To Add Action Buttons To Email Notifications

unnamed (9)The first notable update for the new Android version of Mailbox adds a spiffy, time-saving feature: action buttons in the app’s email notifications. Users should now see a “Reply” button on the expanded Mailbox notification, as well as “Archive” and “Snooze” buttons, which are activated via swipes while in the app itself. These should help achieve the app’s stated goal of making email organization faster and easier for time-strapped mobile users.

Dropbox Acquires Cloud Photo Service Loom And Collaboration Tool Hackbox

unnamedThe ladies and gents at Dropbox have big dreams – look no further than their recent expansion into email and photo gallery apps for evidence of that fact. And like any company with high aspirations, they’re snapping up technology and the associated talent at a fast pace. In the last 18 months the company has bought e-readers, photo tools, and even a Craigslist-style marketplace. Today they’ve announced the acquisition of two more apps and the companies that make them.

AVG Vault keeps files on your device secret and safe

AVG has just announced the latest member of its family of security software and services. With AVG Vault, users can entrust their private files, personal information, photos, and more to a doubly-encrypted storage that can also be securely synced to other devices through the cloud.

As the number of mobile users grow, the amount of personal information stored in these devices, and by extension on the Internet, also grow exponentially. So too the temptation for less conscientious individuals to try to gain access to other people’s sensitive data. Most users, however, are not that vigilant or are put off by complex steps in order to secure their information. AVG Vault tries to address all those concerns by providing users a single storage location for things they want to keep private but, at the same time, offers the convenience of backing them up via popular online storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive.

The key to AVG Vault’s offering is a double layer of security. The first comes via the AES-256 Advanced Encryption Standard, the same encryption standard used by banks and the US government. The second is AVG’s own MyAccount service. The encryption makes use of a custom 4-6 digit PIN that users set up to secure and access their files. This pin isn’t stored anywhere, making it harder to hack but also harder to retrieve, even by AVG itself, in case the user forgot what it is. The types of data that can be stored inside the Vault range from user-supplied information like credit card numbers, login credentials, and notes to more standard types of files like photos and documents. The AVG Vault app itself offers several security features, like an Idle Time Lock that automatically locks the app after a period of inactivity, and an Attempted Access Notification that will take a photo using the front-facing camera and secretly send it to an e-mail address in case the wrong password was entered three times in a row.

avg-vault-2

One final feature that AVG Vault offers is syncing through the cloud, which some might think defeats the purpose of security and privacy. The difference, however, is that the files stored by AVG Vault in Dropbox or Google Drive are also encrypted, making it impossible to access them outside of the Vault app. This gives users the ability to backup those private files and, in the case of loss, restore them on a new device, without having to worry too much about the security of the cloud service itself.

avg-vault-3

AVG Vault is available for free on Google Play Store. An AVG MyAccount is required in order to use the service, and of course, separate accounts for Dropbox and Google are needed to use the cloud syncing feature.

Dropbox releases Mailbox onto Google Play

mailbox

Not too long ago, Dropbox acquired Mailbox, an app designed for iOS devices. Of course, Dropbox is pretty friendly on all platforms, so it was pretty obvious that they were eventually going to look at bringing the app to Android at some point in the future. Today, that finally happened.

The app currently only works with Gmail (and iCloud, if you happen to have any iOS devices) but it arguably manages Gmail better than Google’s own client. The interface is extremely clean and flat, and uses swiping gestures to manage emails. Swipe to the right and you’ll either mark a message as read or delete it, and swiping it left either saves the email for later or archives it. This intuitive swiping makes the app extremely fast and fluid to use, and helps speed up inbox management .

The app is free, but it’s currently only available for phones. I wasn’t able to install the app on a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, or Galaxy Note 10.1, but that may change going forward. Hit the link below for the download.

Dropbox Carousel: a cloud-based mobile image gallery

Along with the introduction of Mailbox for Android, the folks at Dropbox also announced Carousel. This is another Android app that will be available beginning today. But instead of email, the Carousel app is for images and videos.

Carousel will handle a few tasks. To begin with, it will automatically backup any new images and videos taken with your device. All uploaded files will then be sorted by event, so you can scroll back and enjoy those memories. And because the app makes use of the cloud as well as the device storage — you shouldn’t be nearly as limited in terms of the amount of time you can look back.

Blog-Screenshot-Mock1

Along with backing up and browsing Carousel will also allow you to share images. Dropbox mentioned how “those memories are meant to be shared.” But unlike other apps where everything is shared public on social networks, Carousel offers a private conversation option. Users will be able to share a single image, or an entire event in the “same amount of time it’d take to send just one by text.”

Carousel also takes sharing a step further. There was mention about how you can “capture an event from every angle by saving the photos others share with you.” Dropbox is also releasing Carousel for iOS which means you can share with your iPhone carrying friends. As mentioned, Carousel will be available for Android users beginning today.

Dropbox’s Carousel organizes your lifelong memories in one app

It’s not every day that a company shows off literal vacation slides as part of a press event, but Dropbox did it today as a way to introduce Carousel. It’s an app for both iOS and Android that takes your photos from your Dropbox account and organizes them by time, date and event, and any new photos that you take on your phone will automatically backup to the cloud. You’ll also be able to not only share all of your precious memories with family and friends, those same people can return the favor and share some of their pics and vids so you can add it to your personal deck of digital slides. The new app will be available on both platforms today for free. When we asked company reps about desktop and other mobile platforms, we were told that Dropbox is a multi-platform service, hinting that we can expect expansion further down the road without actually giving a specific time frame.

Dropbox announces Carousel: new gallery app for sharing, organizing, and backing up photos to the cloud

Dropbox Carousel

Dropbox is on a roll. After announcing that they’ll be officially bringing Mailbox to Android devices later today, they’re also announcing their all new gallery app for Android and iOS called Carousel. Because simply dragging and dropping folders into your Dropbox account probably isn’t the best way to keep everything organized, Carousel looks to make this process easier by automatically grouping photos according to when and where they were taken.

Carousel screenshots iOS

Photos are also backed up to the cloud, stored in their full resolution, and are extremely easy to share with loved ones. There’s even a social aspect where friends and family can comment on photos that have been shared with them, or add a few photos of their own.

We have a feeling Carousel is the fruit of Dropbox’s acquisition of Snapjoy back in 2012. Dropbox says Carousel will be available later today, and we’ll be updating this post later with a Google Play link as soon as it is. Check out the launch trailer below.

Update: Link is now live.

Mailbox for Android

The folks at Dropbox have announced that they’ll be bringing Mailbox, the popular iOS email app, to Android devices starting today. Mailbox — which joined Dropbox in March of last year — features swipeable gestures for archiving and deleting, much like the standard Gmail app, only adds a few tricks as well.

Users can actually snooze emails, removing them from their inbox entirely, only to return at a later date. Eventually, Mailbox will become smarter, knowing exactly the type of emails you’re more likely to snooze/archive, doing everything automagically.

Mailbox for Android

When viewing emails, Mailbox puts them together in a sort of handy conversation view, making it easier than ever to quickly to scan and get the gist of the convo. Mailbox is only available in limited beta at the moment (Google Play link isn’t quite live just yet), but if you want to sign up, hit up the source link below. Update: we’ve got the download link!

Dropbox Announces Carousel, a Redone Gallery for All Your Life’s Memories

Dropbox Announces Carousel, a Redone Gallery for All Your Life’s Memories

Hot on the heels of Dropbox’s Mailbox announcement for Android, we’re now learning of the announcement of Carousel. Dropbox is trying to provide users with a gallery “for all the photos and videos from your life,” combining pictures on your phone with pictures in the cloud to provide you with a seamless, organized experience.

Dropbox is touting the fact that Carousel does not have to worry about storage limitations on your device (because it’s connected to Dropbox), so you can keep as many pictures as you’d like without worrying about anything but the size of your Dropbox account.

Also built-in to Carousel is private conversations — that is, a way to “relive entire events with friends and family.” Dropbox also touts the speed of sharing via Carousel as opposed to text messaging, as there really is an astronomical difference given your Internet connection is fast enough.

Carousel will be made available on iOS and Android later today, though I was able to install it on Android already. Give it a shot.

You’ll also be able to not only share all of your precious memories with family and friends, those same people can return the favor and share some of their pics and vids so you can add it to your personal deck of digital slides.

Dropbox makes it easier to handle personal and business storage by linking accounts

If you’re the sort of person that likes to use Dropbox for Business and pleasure, your road has been a bit rough. Up until now, you had to keep them as two separate accounts and switching between the two involved signing out of one and signing into the other. If your dream is to eliminate this painful process and merge the two aspects together, then today is the happiest day of your life: Dropbox is now making it possible to have one option for business and another for personal use, and be able to link them together. This feature has been available to beta testers for quite some time now, but it’s finally available to everyone else.
