WHAT IS DROPBOX?

Dropbox (www.dropbox.com) is a fantastic file syncing utility. Create a file on one computer and it will “magically” appear on all your other computers and mobile devices with the Dropbox client installed. Even if you don't buy Notesy you should get yourself a free Dropbox account anyway.
