, the maker of Dropbox, has issued an update to its sync & backup app, improving column view, adding a more reliable overlays/context menu integration, and fixes to a couple of Finder crashes.
According to the development team behind Dropbox, column view should properly display overlays over quicklook previews. Overlays/context menu integration should appear more reliable as well. However, Evenflow urges users to report if they still don't have overlays after restarting the finder and Dropbox – the team is constantly striving to improve the software, whether it’s for free users, or paid account holders.
For those who are not very familiar with Dropbox, it is a complete, file-sharing, backup & sync solution available in both free and paid form. The cross-platform software runs on Mac OS X versions 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard), as well as on Windows and Linux. Snow Leopard is now fully supported too.
With 2GB of storage (free account) and the app installed on multiple systems, one can keep important files up-to-date, or instantly share those files with others through a simple drag-and-drop operation. 50GB plans are available for those who also use Dropbox as a secure backup solution. You can have Dropbox working for you on as many systems as you wish. Soon, the iPhone will join those platforms as well.
