Get Dropbox!


Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. Never email yourself a file again!
Dropbox has been praised by many publications—including The Economist, The New York Times, PC Magazine, and The Washington Post—for its simple design and ease of use. It has also received several awards, including the Crunchie Award in 2009 for Best Internet Application, and Macworld's 2009 Editor's Choice Award. It was nominated for a 2010 Webby Award, and for the 2010 Mac Design Awards by Ars Technica.
Dropbox has been named as the world's fifth most valuable web startup after Facebook, Twitter, Zynga and Groupon, has been touted as Y Combinator's most successful investment to date, and is among the top 10 iPhone most popular apps of all time, according to TechCrunch.
Other accolades include being voted among the top 10 Android apps of all time, according to ZDNet, being recognized as one of the top 50 emerging companies by TIEcon, and called one of the 20 best startups of Silicon Valley.
Drew Houston was called the best young tech entrepreneur by Business Week, and he and co-founder Arash Ferdowsi were named among the top 30 under 30 enterpreneurs by inc.com.
In January 2012, the company was honored as start up of the year by Tech Crunch.
