Wait i did with bated breath for Dropbox for Blackberry, and now it’s finally out in limited beta. Understandably it’s in its infancy so it’s obviously lacking many features.
Currently, there is the option of choosing a picture from your gallery or by taking a new shot via the camera application to upload. Unlike its iPhone counterpart where both pictures and videos are allowed the blackberry application only allows the former to be uploaded.
The search is pretty solid and the ability to share any folder by creating a share link and inputting said link into the body of the messages application is pretty cool. The application is also pretty fast.
As mentioned above, the app only allows photos to be uploaded, but there are many other shortcomings in the app. Dropbox does not allow you to choose your connection type (i.e BIS, BES, TCP or WIFI); I’m guessing it’s BIS by default. There is also no option to create, delete or manage files and folders. If you have large files ( Greater than 2 MB) synced don’t bother attempting to download over slow connections as it would take quite a while…unless you really need the file of course.
Dropbox for Blackberry is still in its infancy, but has the potential to be a great app for the blackberry. As it is though, it’s still a pretty solid & use-able application.
You may have to wait a bit before you can get your hands on this app if you missed the Beta, but in the meantime, give Dropbox a try if you haven’t already.
If you’re not sure what Dropbox is, but you’ve always heard of it, maybe this video will help:
