50 Tools to Get the Most Out of Dropbox

 In All Things Productivity, Blog

Dropbox is one of the world’s favorite cloud-based, file-sharing solutions. It’s the perfect tool for backing up your documents, quickly sharing files, and saving images, docs and other media for later, but it’s also a robust service capable of so much more: document e-signing, photo slideshows, document encryption, podcast hosting, and file management to name a few additional functions.

The following tools, tricks, apps and web-based services will supercharge Dropbox functionality so you can get the most out of your cloud-based file sharing.

1. Get Free Space in DropBox

Dropbox Referral Program

This is the only non-tool tool on the list, but it’s also one of the most useful Dropbox tips out there. Your free Dropbox account comes with 2GB of space; Pro accounts ($9.99/month) afford 100GB and Business ($15/user/month) have unlimited space. But if you find that your space requirements hover in the no-man’s-land between 2GB and 100GB, know that you can easily boost your free account from 2GB to 18GB capacity. With the Dropbox Referral program, for every friend you refer (and who sets up an account and installs Dropbox on his/her computer), you earn 500 MB of additional space – up to 16GB for a total Dropbox of 18GB.

Key Features:

  • Earn 500MB per referral
  • Refer via link, Facebook, Twitter, and other methods
  • Add up to 16GB to your free Dropbox account, for total storage of 18GB

Cost: Free
