If you haven’t heard of Dropbox before then I would assume you are new to the whole ‘cloud’ thing. Essentially Dropbox is a service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. As once connected to a Wi-Fi network you will have access to all your files that you have uploaded to Dropbox. This concept of keeping your content stored on servers is, in layman terms, the cloud.
Dropbox is currently cross-compatible will almost all operating systems from iOS, Android to Windows. Speaking of Windows, Dropbox has just released the first Windows 8 and Windows RT app that integrates beautifully with the whole metro design approach.
