In all, there are more than 300 million people out there who use the Dropbox cloud service to store, sync, and share files.

A staggering 100 million users were added in the last six months alone. That is an impressive growth rate indeed.

Dropbox recently announced that it added a new notch on the wall. The image below indicates that there are now more than 300 million Dropbox users out there.



As you can see, there’s not much room between the 200 and the 300 million notch. That is because Dropbox grew from 200 million to 300 million in just six months. In half a year, the user base went up by 50%. That is quite impressive!

Samsung is partly responsible for Dropbox’s success. I remind you that if you get a new Galaxy S5, Samsung will shower you with gifts worth a grand total of $600. One of those gifts is 50GB of Dropbox cloud storage space for two years, valued at $60. It’s worth noting that Samsung sold 11 million units of the Galaxy S5 during its first month of availability (the Galaxy S5 went on sale in 150 countries this April).

Dropbox is a very useful tool that can be used to upload files to the cloud.
Once the files are in the cloud, they will be synced across all your platforms. If you have a PC, an iPhone, and an Android tablet for example, your files will be synced across all these platforms.
Once the files are in the cloud, they can be accessed from the web browser, they can be easily managed, and they can be shared with others. You can for example get the link for a file and then paste the link in an IM, email, and so on.

Dropbox for Windows is available for download right here on FindMySoft.
