Dropbox offline folders on mobile are now possible, for a price

Despite the ubiquity of mobile devices, Internet coverage isn’t so. In addition to not having a cellular data plan, or public transportation with no Wi-Fi access there are also places where radio waves just can’t reach, like tunnels. In these cases, cloud storage is rendered helpless and offline access becomes a matter of life or death (for your work).

But accessing those files in the cloud is still cumbersome and can pretty much break your flow.
