App Recommendation – Dropbox

I have been using Dropbox in the past week and have finally found a decent online backup tool that simply works for free. The way it works is that you have a folder in your OS designated as the Dropbox folder, anything you copy there is synced automatically online. You can then install Dropbox on other computers and the files with sync there as well. The best way to use it is to go into the settings and change the maximum upload speed to a rate that doesn’t slow down you internet connection (10kps for me). The limit for a free user is 2gb of storage. There is a OSX, Windows and iPhone version of the application.
