Likelihood to Recommend

Dropbox

Dropbox is wonderful for anyone looking to share files, pictures, or even video on a cloud-based server. Dropbox is great for anyone looking for an inexpensive (or free) storage solution that has the capability to easily transfer or share files between other users or devices. Dropbox would not be suitable for anyone needing a storage solution for private, secure, or sensitive material.

Pros

Dropbox

  • Dropbox has the ability to automatically sync from other sources. When our Appraisers use their tablets to take pictures, it is set up so that the pictures automatically upload to a folder in Dropbox so that the staff back at the office will then have access to the pictures as well.
  • Dropbox is very easy to use. There is a list of folders on the left-hand side. You simply click and go to each folder to pull up files. You can rename the folders, sort by date, etc.
  • Dropbox has several different options for storage size options. An individual can choose a smaller package or a large corporation could choose bigger packages. There is also a free version that is great for saving pictures from an individual phone or another device.
  • Dropbox has a search feature that saves a lot of time. If you aren't sure where the file you need is, use the search function to quickly find it.
  • Dropbox is cloud based so there are no bulky servers taking up space!

Cons

Dropbox

  • When using Excel within the app on the iPhone it can be cumbersome trying to navigate different tabs. There could be possible room for improvement with office integration.
  • Sometimes I have issues with sharing files from within the folders when using the integrated computer application. Usually I can work this by logging in on the web and initializing the share from there.
  • I wish there was a way to get it to auto-sync whenever you are connected to wi-fi without having to open the app on the iPhone.

Dropbox is one of the best tools in its industry, even if it is lacking in certain ways and isn’t the most user friendly. It’s one of the best of what’s abailable.

Usability

It’s extremely easy to use on any device. I can set access to whole folders or only certain files. I can print, share, and save with very few clicks. I’m able to save high-resolution photos without taking up a ton of space on my phone and can send a link to those files that are too large to email or text.

I don't remember contacting support because I just never had any major problems with them. I rate it high because when I needed information I could easily find it online on their website.

I needed to stay current in improving my daily operations. Dropbox
was suggested to me by a former colleague two-years ago and I've been using it just fine ever since.

Alternatives Considered

Dropbox

Dropbox is the most user-friendly when compared to similar software applications. It also seems to have the most functionality built into one program with the exception of maybe ShareFile, however, ShareFile comes at a much higher cost. I am skeptical of the security provided by the likes of Wetransfer. OpenDXM is probably the worst out of the bunch. It typically only works on Internet Explorer and requires a specific version of Java.

Return on Investment

Dropbox

  • Before Dropbox, we were constantly emailing files back and forth to each other, and didn't have the ability to collaborate on a document without multiple versions floating around. Dropbox makes it easy to send a document, gather corrections, and finalize, which saves us time.
  • Dropbox is simple enough to use, but still with sufficient access control, that I can share specific folders with volunteers, board members, or other partners quickly and easily.
