The application can also store encrypted files offline, is compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, and is available for free on both platforms. Read More

Dbinbox Lets You & Others Securely Upload Files To Your Dropbox Account Without Signing In

Dropbox is one the best file hosting and sharing services around. Used by over 175M people around the globe, it has revolutionized the way we view and use cloud computing. But even though it’s fairly powerful in the way it’s designed, a few additional features could have made it even better. For instance, Dropbox doesn’t allow anonymous file uploading to the cloud, which is a great feature already found in services like Jumpshare. If you want to upload files to your Dropbox, you must first sign in to your account or use a desktop or mobile client, and having to enter your account credentials can be fairly unsafe when using s public computer or someone else' mobile device.

Kloudle is a similar service that can connect with Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive, and lets you attach files to your emails in a way similar to Cloudy. Kloudle supports far fewer services than Cloudly but coupled with its Chrome extension, the service does something else as well that can be really useful - it allows you to save files from your Gmail account to any one of your cloud drives. Files are saved automatically based on ‘rules’ that you create, and you can create up to ten rules. Think of it as the famous service IFTTT, working entirely in your email. Read More

Get ‘Add To Home Screen’, Dropbox & Sorting Options In iOS Notes App

One might think that most Cydia developers deem the stock Notes app in iOS perfect as it is, because there are very few tweaks in the jailbreak store that deal with Notes. There are a few exceptions like AddNote and MultiNoteDelete, but even these tweaks don’t make any drastic changes to the app. This is why NotesTweak might be among the best tweaks ever released for the Notes app. Although your notes are synced across all your iDevices thanks to iCloud, but not everyone is a fan of Apple’s cloud service, specially since there are a lot of alternatives available for the same purpose that work on multiple platforms, not just Apple's closed ecosystem. If you are a Dropbox user, NotesTweak is likely to become a permanent resident of your iPhone, since its adds Dropbox integration to Notes. You can also save individual notes to your device’s Home screen, which is quite similar to adding webpages to SpringBoard. The ability to let users sort notes in the app just the way they want completes the tweak’s impressive feature list. Read More

Invite Others To Upload To Your Dropbox Or Google Drive Storage With EntourageBox

When you choose to move your files to the cloud or keep the important ones synced with it, it is likely that you will find one good service that does it, and stick to it. You might also use more than one service depending on its features; for example, I use Google Drive, Dropbox, and Jumpshare. One of my key concerns about using a cloud service is that while I may be able to share files easily (and privately), I cannot receive them from friends through the service without forcing them to sign up for it as well. Under these circumstances, I turn to Google Drive because most of them - if not all - have a Google account. EntourageBox is a web app that fixes this problem; it acts as a bridge between your friends and your cloud drive, and allows them to upload files to a folder of your choice. Currently, it works with Google Drive, Dropbox, and Amazon cloud storage. Read More
