What is it and how is it of use to journalists? DropSync is a newly released app that allows you to sync and update files in your Dropbox folder using your Android phone or tablet.
Dropbox is a cloud file storage system which can be installed on multiple computers or accessed via a web browser. It means you can work on files at home and at work without needing to transfer to a memory stick, Google Docs or email. A 2GB account is free. Group accounts are also available.
