Very cool list Josia! Thanks for sharing it!

So far I have only used it to share files with clients and vice versa, but it seems to be worth way more than that!

Being virtual, I like to know what I can do when away from my desk so the printing thing and being able to access my PC is huge for me. Also being able to Host a site that can be used as a development site for client work before going live is practically invaluable.

Thanks again

Thanks for the link Josia
I briefly used drop box to share documents, but never knew about the other features.

Yes, thanks. I'll have to try that remote printing. We print a lot of legal docs and that would really help.

I use it to share files with clients so that we don't have to e-mail each other back and forth. The file sharing is also great for storing large files like logo formats and pictures! I also use it on the go since I have the mobile app. This has eliminated the need for me to carry a thumb drive around since I have access to it no matter where I'm at! I actually have a blog post on it here and on my regular blog and would love to get comments from everyone! http://savvesupportsolutions.com/blog/

Thanks for sharing. I got a new phone and this was a app that was pre-installed on it. I was wondering the advantages of using it!

I'm using filesanywhere.com for people to upload their documents. I see a lot of people are using dropbox. I assume both programs basically do the same thing, but I never checked into dropbox. Thanks for the info.

That is an awesome list Josia!
I use dropbox daily, I back up my time tracking software to it so it is synced when I open it via my laptop or desktop.
