Dropbox is making a strong play for the mobile space and the online storage company has introduced multiple new applications and a mobile application programming interface.
The company already has a pretty cool iPhone app, and it now has a version for Android, iPad and BlackBerry. The iPhone and iPad version are available now and the long-awaited Android version can be had by using the QR code below. The company promises that the BlackBerry version will drop by the end of the month.
If you’ve yet to use the service, I’d suggest you give it a try. The free version offers a few GBs of online storage that is now accessible from multiple mobile devices. Not only will you be able to access important documents on the go but you can also stream multimedia files to your handset. I think Dropbox-like services will become more important in the future as devices with relatively limited internal storage – like the iPad – become more popular.
The company is not content with its own apps though, as it has also rolled out an API called Dropbox Anywhere. Other app makers will be able to integrate online storage capacity in their respective programs and you can see examples of this with the QuickOffice app or Sprint Mobile.
