Dropbox Hits the iPhone

The online file synching and storage service Dropbox became more useful with the release of an iPhone and iPod touch client app  on Tuesday. The mobile application lets Dropbox users manage their files and folder, and edit documents on the go.

The app also lets users synchronize photos from their iPhone to Dropbox so they're immediately available to any computers that are sharing the same Dropbox account, share links to Dropbox files, and more.

Dropbox for the iPhone and iPod touch is free and available for download at Apple's iTunes-based App Store. Dropbox accounts are free for storing up to 2GB of data, US$9.99 a month for 50GB and $19.99 for 100GB.
