I was never a huge fan of these types of services. Not because I'm paranoid about who owns my data (whoever can get to it) or privacy concerns (what's privacy? Oh yeah, something smart hackers are nice enough to give us much of the time) but because with google docs and other tools I'd just not needed to use something like this all that often. Until...
I started helping out a great org (BEARTREK- Find them on Facebook by that name) who has amazing videos that I always wanted to share with people. 90 seconds of amazing footage can tell a better story than I can, and you can usually get just about anyone to watch something awesome for 90 seconds. But of course much of the time, no matter how awesome my wireless connection or 3G speed I just couldn't get a quality stream. A jerky 90 second video that takes more than 2 minutes to watch doesn't really tell a story.
And then came my savior, Dropbox. I've put the video into Dropbox, starred it on the app and now it lives on my phone. I'm able to play it anywhere, wireless or not, quality connection or none, without having to sacrifice quality.
If you have multimedia that you're always wanting to share but can't figure out a way to do it this app is the answer. Thank you Dropbox for helping a nonprofit tell it's story!
