About Drop Box

Dropbox is a cloud-based service that allows you to upload and transfer files to the cloud, and share them with anyone. It is just like Google Drive where you can back up and sync docs, photos, videos, and other files to cloud storage and access them from any device. One of the best features of DropBox is there is no limitation of size while sending documents over it.

Once you set up your Dropbox account, it automatically uploads videos and photos from your camera roll to cloud photo storage. You can also access more than 175 file types with Dropbox with no special software required and that too, offline. You can also scan documents, receipts, IDs, photos, and more using your mobile device and transform them into high-quality PDFs, so you can view and send them anywhere. Dropbox is available for Android and iOS and it also supports Chromecast so you can watch its content on your TV screen.
