2015 - Dropbox for Windows Phone is now available - a new advantage over SugarSync


Right after Microsoft previewed Windows 10 for computers, tablets and phones, Dropbox launches an app for Windows Phone. The free app offers 2GB of Dropbox storage for new users and can automatically back up all of files on your device, just as it can for Apple iOS and Google Android. You can mark files or folders as favorites while offline and later view them when back online. You can share files or folders with a link, backup photos automatically right after snapping them, and favorite files for offline access. And if you have Dropbox accounts for both personal and business use, you can manage them separately within the app.
