Dropbox for Android will automatically sync up to 3GB of your gallery now, feature coming soon to iOS devices

0. phoneArena posted on 24 Feb 2012, 06:57

The second you snap a photo or press the stop button when capturing a video, they start uploading to your Dropbox account, similar to what Windows Phone does with SkyDrive. You can, of course, permit this function only over Wi-Fi or forbid it altogether, but it does take the hassle out of keeping backups of your gallery, since it doesn't have file size limits, so that huge video is welcome too...

dropbox does photo/video as well as any file type. Google+ only does photos and video. Although the Dropbox is allowing 3GB solely for media and no filesize limit, if im correct Box offers 50GB with 25MB-100MB filesize limit :( which is total bull!!! But 50GB is 50GB lol.

I meant the added features. I use dropbox already for files mostly and like it. Hoping Google Drive comes into play though so all my stuff can be stored in the same place. I prefer Google+/Picasa for photos and videos though and already has the features dropbox added
