Dropbox for BlackBerry Updated to 1.0.34 With Multiple Fixes
Just a mere 24 hours ago Dropbox updated their application for BlackBerry to version 1.0.34, taking care of a gaggle of fixes in the process.
If your unfamiliar with Dropbox, it is an amazing piece of software: Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across your computers. Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they'll be instantly available on any of your other computers that also have Dropbox installed (Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile devices too!). Because copies of your files are stored on Dropbox's secure servers, you have access to them from anywhere you can log in to your Dropbox account.
* saving non-ascii texts results in garbled text
* handling of edge cases when running out of space on sd card and in device memory
* open-edit-upload usecase wasn’t working for devices with encryption enabled
* share link freezes for some users
* open-edit-upload usecase fails for files with non-ascii filenames
* “would you like to allow logging” dialog shouldn’t appear on first launch
* on rotatable devices, in image gallery, the displayed/cached image is smaller than screen size (shouldn’t happen)
* app should ask for permissions in advance on first launch
* app should support multiple third-party app associations for a given file type (e.g multiple pdf viewers)
* music/video stops when screen fades out
* user gets a “not enough room to write file” message when trying to open a file that’s already open in docs2go

For those of you in school, I found some additional news that is outstanding!
While you start out with 250MB of space to use when you sign up with Dropbox, I found this nice little tidbit to give you a bit more space -double to be exact!
If you are in school and have a .edu email address, then you will get 500MB of space as opposed to the 250! I hope you find this to be as helpful as I found it to be.
So, 3 easy steps...
- Go get your free account here.
- Visit the Dropbox/edu page .
- Verify your .edu address.

I have to say, while I don't have any practical use for a service such as Dropbox right now, this is a really great idea. Dropbox can make your life much more simple and keep you well organized. I also think it is great that they are giving an extra 250mbs to students. That also answers my question about how they make money.
Its actually free for the 250mb too. They make money if you upgrade to the large premium package. Its a bit more but not necessary because the free account starts with 2gigs and goes up to 10gigs. I have never paid a dime. If you refer somebody you and the referrer get extra space from dropbox.
Keep in mind though...new accounts get the extra space once they register and install it.

Here is a new invitation link that a friend of mine has...Free to sign up and use...If you are new to dropbox, you will get an additional 250 mb of space by using this link: Dropbox
Another cool thing about drop box is that you can transfer at the same time from multiple computers and your device. So no more usb transfer for just a few pics, docs, ect.
Sweet, that is cool. I didn't know that.
Yep, just install dropbox on both computers and walla. Dropbox is basically a mini server.
That is awesome. It will make transferring files to my new pc from my old a breeze.
