URL Droplet Downloads Online Files To Your Dropbox

Dropbox has changed how we sync our files, instead of being plagued by USBs or emailing ourselves important document, we send them to the cloud right from our desktops and can then access them from anywhere. URL Droplet is a web service that enhances how we add files to Dropbox. It acts as a download manager and lets you queue files to download directly to your Dropbox account.

URL Droplet

To add a file for downloading, copy the URL and paste it in the bar. When uploading a file, you can click Save and the file will be downloaded and saved with the URL as its name. If you choose to save the file by clicking on Save as, it will ask you to enter a file name for saving the file. So long as your downloads don’t exceed your Dropbox storage capacity, you can queue files for download. The service syncs with your Dropbox account and each time a download completes you receive a message in the notification area.

There are two flaws with the service; if you save two files with the same name, it does not prompt you that a previous file with the same name exists, the new file overwrites the old one. Once you’ve used the service you will need to clean browser cookies or remember to close the browser, or anyone can access the files you downloaded.
