Dropbox has added support for the Apple iPad in an update released this week.
Users can now sync files between PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad. The iPad app has options for viewing content within the app, like word docs and PDFs, but you can also open the documents in their native applications.
Dropbox gives users 2GB of free cloud storage space, with extra space available for a fee. Users can also gain up to 8GB of additional free space by referring other people to the service. When you load Dropbox onto a computer or mobile device, the data you put in it will be synced across all locations, in addition to the Dropbox servers. This makes it an ideal situation for backing up important data, and keeping yourself organized across multiple locations. Should a user accidentally delete or overwrite a file, it can still be retrieved within 30 days via the Dropbox website.
