Dropbox Revisited

I just won a book that came as a pdf. I looked around to see if I could upload it to one of my apps I have on my iPod Touch that I already had for books. Nope, those apps do not allow you to download your own pdfs on their list. Yes, you can get pdfs to read on the actual Kindle product, but for the iPod/iPhone apps, no dice. However, instead of loading up another app that will read a pdf, I went to my old standby. Dropbox! I uploaded them from my computer and now I can read them on my iPod with the Dropbox app. Of course, I can still read them on my computer if I wish, but it is nice knowing that I didn't have to get another app and try to find out where the heck those pdfs were stored.

So, if you haven't checked out Dropbox yet, do so soon. No, I have no interest in the company, it's just a great application!


  1. Okay, I just got the app. Now all I need to do is learn how to use it...

  2. If you need specific help, let me know. If I don't know, I do know who to ask! :)

  3. I use Dropbox to backup all my writing, but I haven't figured out how to open Openoffice open document format files through Dropbox on the Ipod Touch yet.

  4. Your iPod is not set up for the format, so you might want to convert files on your comp to a more friendly format and then upload to a file on dropbox. Much easier IMO.
