Want Dropbox for Windows Mobile? You have to vote for it

Dropbox is a free (2GB) cloud based backup and storage service for all those important files that you can't afford to lose. With Dropbox, you can drag and drop files into a designated folder on your desktop and watch it sync across all computers where your account resides. Not only that, but your files are always accessible via the Dropbox website, and you can recover deleted or modified files for up to thirty days. You can also earn more free space by referring other users to the service.

As reported back in February, Dropbox is hard at work creating an app for both Android and BlackBerry (iPhone is already supported). However, the company has no formal plans too bring their service to the Windows Mobile platform.

WMPoweruser has pointed us to Dropbox's Votebox--a place where the company asks users to vote on new features. In the Votebox, there's a category called "Windows mobile support." The current tally is already over 9500, though it surely needs more support than that to grab their attention.

To vote for a Windows Mobile version of Dropbox, follow these steps:

  1. If you don't already have a Dropbox account, register here (you have to be a member to vote).
  2. Once you have an account, visit https://www.dropbox.com/votebox/8/windows-mobile-support to cast your vote.
  3. You get 6 votes to use. Make them count.

I hope no WM users take this in a negative way, as the android port was raised and completed in the same way, it was voted by members.

Rather use mediafire, way better service.

So Mediafire has a client that integrates with Windows explorer and will synchronize your files between computers?

I would think anything over 9000 would grab their attentions well. That's quite alot of customers. Nonetheless, Windows Mobile holds a fair percentage of the phone OS market out there. Chances are there's quite a few more Windows Mobile users out there that don't even know about the poll.

True, but keep in mind, 9000 is the number of votes. Each person could potentially vote 6 times, I believe. Still, you're right. It's a nice size group of people.

Interesting. I bought a windows mobile phone in hopes that I'd at least get some good services from MS, not only freeware and third party paid apps. It appears even they don't see any potential on their own OS and are abandoning those that bought Windows powered phones and leaving us to vote and hope for features that MS should have added as apps on their own devices. Think my next phone would be anything but windows phone/mobile. -WM user since 2003-not for longi think. -English isn't my first language sorry-
