Dropbox - The data storage with team connections

In the digital age, there are always reasons why you don't want to store your data on a single device, but instead use it from different devices. On the one hand, it can be important presentations that you want to present to your audience. It can also be documents that you need for work or files that need to be managed in a group work. But you may also want to have music, movies and your favorite pictures with you at all times, without having to store them separately on each of your devices.

For these occasions, an online cloud like Dropbox is useful. With Dropbox, you store all your important files in an online storage and can then easily open, edit and manage them via a browser or the corresponding app.

Dropbox sorts your files chronologically. This way, you can always see directly which files were last uploaded or edited. In addition, the online cloud has many automatic tools, such as a video player or an editing platform for documents, so you need fewer apps to use your stored data.

To make sure you're always up to date, Dropbox always updates itself, as well as the files it stores, automatically for you. For example, if you write a file on your computer and upload it, you can continue to edit that file on your phone. The next time you start your computer, the revised file from your Dropbox is automatically saved to the smartphone so that your editing progress is not lost. The update is relatively fast, so you can continue working almost seamlessly.

A look at the different functions of Dropbox

In its main function, Dropbox offers you the possibility to store your data online. In addition, you can also sort and store your data according to different categories. For example, if you are making a presentation for school or work, you can put all your data into one folder. This way you don't have to search for your documents, but have them all in one place and can make your presentation more fluent.

Dropbox also keeps track of which files you use most often, or which files you spend a lot of time on. Under the menu item "Highlights" you can then display all files according to their most frequent use.

In Dropbox, you also have the option of creating team documents. The so-called "papers" serve as a kind of blackboard to which you can invite all the people who are to work in the team. The members of the team can leave ideas, improvements and comments on the respective paper, similar to a group chat. But you can also conveniently add the different documents for the team using a drag-and-drop system and assign specific tasks and timings to each team member. This way, each team member has a structured overview of what they need to get done and by when so that the team project can be completed.

Another big plus of Dropbox is that your cloud can be extended with various extensions. For example, you can integrate apps like Zoom, Autodesk and Adobe's Acrobat Reader into your Dropbox to control their respective functions directly from your data store.

Is Dropbox a recommended application?

Dropbox is a very simple but comprehensive cloud storage for your files. You can not only store documents or presentations, but also use private files such as photos, music or movies via the service conveniently from your smartphone or tablet. Especially when you use different devices and are often on the go, Dropbox is a very useful program for you. However, the free data storage is quickly used up, so you should consider exactly how many files you want to store in the cloud beforehand. Occasionally, the connection is interrupted, which is particularly annoying when watching movies or during a zoom chat. Overall, however, Dropbox is good and helps you to make your data available on the go.

Tutorial installation / de-installation on iOS

This is how easy it is to install and uninstall / delete iOS apps (applies to iPhone and other iOS devices):

The installation of apps is basically possible on iOS via the App Store. The App Store contains both free and paid apps that can be installed on the iPad, iPod or iPhone. The prerequisite for use is an Apple ID, which can also be created free of charge (this ID is also required for free apps).

1. In the AppStore, the user selects the appropriate app using the search or categories. To the right of the app icon there is a "load" button that is pressed.

2. In the next step, the user must log in with the Apple ID. If the ID has already been used for an app, all you have to do is enter the password - alternatively, Touch ID or Face ID can be used for new devices.

3. After entering the password or after authentication, the app is finally loaded and automatically installed. Entering the password is also necessary for free apps.

4. The app is loaded at the next free space on the home screen and can be opened there - alternatively, the "Load" button becomes the "Open app" button so that the app can be opened directly from the AppStore.

Uninstall apps in iOS

Deleting apps and programs on iOS is very easy and can be done directly from the home screen.
1. In the first step, the user looks for the app that needs to be deleted and presses the app icon with one finger for a long time.

2. The mode opens in which the home screen can be edited. An "X" appears at the top left of every app. Clicking on the "X" opens another dialog that asks you to confirm the deletion.

3. "Delete app" is selected here. Some apps save user data (e.g. scores) - therefore iOS can ask the user for some apps whether the app data should also be removed. If the app is reinstalled in the future, stored information can easily be reused.
