QuickShot with Dropbox for iPhone Review

QuickShot with Dropbox for iPhone Review

The app you're about to see a very brief review of requires little introduction and only a small explanation as it's only got a couple of functions, and it does them well.

HTC Sense 4.0 previewed: Streamlined UI, 50GB DropBox integration, more

HTC has already said it plans to focus on quality not quantity with its 2012 range, but it seems the company has some significant software changes in the pipeline too with HTC Sense 4.0. The Android reskin initially offered a far more usable interface than the native OS, but Google's successive iterations narrowed the gap and HTC failed to keep pace with its own services.
