Dropbox Infinite puts your entire cloud on your desktop

Dropbox Infinite puts your entire cloud on your desktop

Although there are terabytes of storage space available in large boxes, severs, and contraptions, most consumer computers still come with at most 1 TB of space, especially in laptops and 2-in-1 tablets. Cloud storage services like Dropbox expands that almost infinitely and also solves the problem of collaboration as well. But accessing those files in the cloud is still cumbersome and can pretty much break your flow. With Dropbox Infinite, the most popular cloud provider aims to answer that problem as well, allowing any user full access to their 10 TB online storage as if they were installed on their 1 TB desktop.

Adobe Acrobat and Dropbox integration finally lands on Android

It is perhaps already a matter of fact for Android users that very rarely do they get new treats first before their iOS counterparts. It is great news when apps for games launch at the same time for both platforms but, more often than not, iOS gets to call dibs. When Adobe and Dropbox inked a partnership last October, the integration between Adobe Acrobat and Dropbox was initially limited to iOS and then later on to Windows. Now the fated day has arrived for Android users as the two roll out the same features to the more than 300 million Acrobat Reader users on Android.

Dropbox trashes Mailbox and Carousel

Dropbox trashes Mailbox and Carousel

It would appear that both Mailbox and Carousel have not been nearly popular enough for Dropbox to continue running the lot. The one is used for email, the other for photos. The both of these apps and ecosystems have not found enough users to remain feasible to continue running. Dropbox has decided that the features that people love best will be rolled into products that remain viable - like Dropbox and the lesser-known Paper.

Dropbox now lets you annotate PDFs on iPhones and iPads

For the past months, it has been slowly transforming itself into a collaboration suite as well, with the launch of the Paper collaboration tools as well as an earlier partnership with Adobe.

Dropbox Paper launched as set of collaborative tools for teams

Dropbox Paper launched as set of collaborative tools for teams

This week the folks at Dropbox have turned the switch on for Paper, the final name for the until-now-beta release of "Notes." What was Notes now becomes officially "Paper", and the invites are beginning to be sent. Paper is a set of collaborative tools for teams that work on the internet and off - and though there'll be software for smart devices in the future, Paper will launch first as a web app only. Paper looks sort of like a blog - a very simple layout with the ability to display files that you upload, shared with people you allow to see it.

Dropbox, Adobe team up to make short work of PDFs

Although not directly trying to do so, Dropbox is slowly turning into quite a decent cloud-based productivity suite. Last year, it partnered with Microsoft to supercharge opening and editing office documents even from mobile devices. Now it's doing the same thing for PDFs through a friendship with Adobe. Now Adobe users on desktops and iOS devices can not only quickly get access to documents stored on Dropbox but, in the case of mobile, can edit them on the go, without having to download and then reupload the file.
