[Now open to all] Dropbox password manager here, but invite-only; uses zero-knowledge encryption

Dropbox beta for macOS adds desktop, documents, and downloads syncing to match iCloud Drive

Dropbox beta

One of the key differences between iCloud and Dropbox is that iCloud will sync the native macOS documents folder along with your desktop.

Why I left Dropbox for iCloud Drive and never looked back

icloud drive vs dropbox

When it comes to file storage for Mac and iOS users, there are multiple options. Today, I want to look at iCloud Drive vs Dropbox.

When I think back to the early days of iPhone and iPad (and even my Mac life around that time), Dropbox was so ingrained into my workflows that I couldn’t ever see it leaving. On the flip-side, I’ve have been using Dot Mac/MobileMe/iCloud since before the iPhone was released. Years ago, Apple’s storage solution for Dot Mac/MobileMe was iDisk, and it was not good. Dropbox came along and made everything else look ancient.
