Hi, Would love this app to help get notified when other volunteers at our local junior football club have amended files and to allow quicker and easier sharing.
Cheers!

I would use DropIn to manage my Dropbox, sure. I have really many folders in Dropbox, a lot of them are shared folders, and public folder is also very busy. I’m using Dropbox mostly for private and sometimes for business use also. So I think that DropIn would come very useful…

As I’m a heavy user of Dropbox, DropIn would help me keep up to date with all my files, personal and professional – and also will help me share the correct documentation across clientes.
This is an amazing app, and I really want to have this free copy on my iMac ;)

Dropin would allow me to stay organized with my Dropbox account. Right now, im getting all the updates on files updated, even if those are not related to me. It would be awesome, if i could manage the notifications and manage file updation smartly and quickly.

DropIn would help me manage a little more easier one of the best tool that came to my life these last years. (I mean Dropbox, duh.)
Even better : my friends (that I invited to dropbox) wouldn’t understand HOW I can handle the beast so easily, and that would make me their master.

At the moment I use a combination of both Dropbox and CloudApp, with dropin to handle the automated screenshot uploading I could have all my files in the same place. Sweet.

I own an online training site and my teachers are physically located all over the country. We use dropbox all the time to share content and notes. This would allow me to manage the constant flow of information and files.

Dropbox does a pretty good job of making the usage of it pretty straight forward. But I’m definitely a Dropbox power user, and I’d be curious to see in what ways you’ve been able to make it’s use easier. I’m also quite interested in experimenting with it on local networks, that could almost be more useful for me than the Dropbox integration.

Alex

I was blown away at the whole showcase of the new features. The most used program I would have is Dropin since I use dropbox every single day. It’s one of those things where you can’t live without it once you find out about it.

How would it be useful?! I’m the kind of designer that gets hives if there’s more than 3 icons on my desktop – an unorganised DropBox is just not an option for me. You’d be saving me from basically gnawing my wrists off.
