Now I am using dropbox version 1.3.4. I like this version very much. I use dropbox everyday, so I found this version suits me best. Now I see dropbox version 1.4.7 is released and I downloaded it. I didn't install it because I cant loose my favorite version, I need someone who used the new version, and say which one is better. Is there any good upgrades in the new version ?

Dropbox could be a free and intensely easy-to-use tool for sharing files and syncing them between computers, and you'll additionally use Dropbox to make a copy files and access them from different computers and devices (including from your iPad or iPhone, with dedicated apps for every of these devices).

Dropbox's interface is basically invisible, that is a component of what makes this app very easy to use. after you install Dropbox on your Mac, you produce a Dropbox folder. this can be a neighbourhood folder that lives on your Mac, however you'll access the folder from different computers (Macs or PCs), or anywhere you have got access to an internet browser. Even higher, you'll use this folder to share files with different people--either through a chosen "Public" folder, or by putting in place folders within your Dropbox with shared access by multiple users that you simply opt for (this resolution may be significantly helpful in work settings as a productivity tool, particularly as a result of Dropbox tracks older versions of files).

I think the higher version is 1.4.7. I even have been using DB 1.4.7 for a few time currently, and transfer each audio and video files round the world. it's never failed and don't lost a file, and as long as I clean out unwanted or finished comes, I realize the five Gig I even have to be satisfactory. will specifically what it's imagined to do. Running ok. on each Macbook professional and iMac 3.06 each beneath OS .X 10.7.4. Incredibly straightforward to use and incredibly helpful. The foremost vital factor of this version is to repair a missing translation.
