Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Dropbox has filed for a $500 million IPO. Discuss here if you think Dropbox still has room to grow, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

as a student we use it when working in groups, that way we can share documents etc while not using email, or meeting up.

besides that me and my brother use it to share larger files, like game mods, music, movies, pictures in large quantities.

my brother likes using the sync option, i do not tho, since the syncchronasation of the dropbox folders(downloading) can increase latancy/ping/ms, whatever you want to call it. + i do not have that much room on a 256GB SSD haha.

I've used it once actually. And it worked fine, but I don't see how it will grow further.

I have been using Dropbox since the beginning. Was looking for a way to share some documents with an associate without having to email back and forth all the time. With both having access to the same Dropbox it is easy to see and update the shared docs without a number of outdated versions flouting around in email boxes.
One-Drive (MS) goes even further with keeping previous versions for backtracking.
Devices can sync files with Dropbox for offline access. After becoming online, Dropbox will update.

Both can easily share docs/pics/media (publicly) by sending a web access shortcut until you deactivated the sharing.

Only uncertainty is how long it takes for hackers to find holes in this "secure" cloud storage.
