DropBox and Windows 8
By Dave Taylor
The Question:I’m running Windows 8.1 and need to hook up DropBox so I can access some files my boss wants to share. Can you help me out?
I’m a big fan of Dropbox, actually, and use it to share photos and documents throughout my online world, whether it’s an Android tablet, an iPhone running iOS 7, a Mac OS X system or a Windows computer. One folder, magically synchronized across all the different platforms. What’s not to love?
What? You’re not on Dropbox yet? I suggest you check it out: Join Dropbox, share data across every platform.
Dropbox works really well. But Dropbox on Windows 8? It’s either not a priority for the company to implement, or they just don’t have as talented a team of developers as with the splendid Mac version. I’ll explain as we go, but don’t be surprised if it feels rather half-baked.
