Good App – Android DropBox App 2.3

With a rating of 4.6 out of 5 on Google Play it is no wonder the Dropbox app is a huge hit with consumers. With the new 2.3 version you can now share and delete several photos at once, organize your photos into albums, along with UI improvements and updates throughout. It still holds true to having up to 3 GB of free space for uploading photos automatically like its older 2.1 version. The big draw for Dropbox users is the fact that it makes photo sharing a breeze. If you have the “Camera Upload” feature enabled you can add photos to your gallery and select images to share via (Gmail, SMS, Facebook, Google+, ect.). From there the the recipient gets the link and can add it to their own Dropbox account or feel free to just download the images if they do not have one. And to think it was not long ago when we took our camera rolls to get developed at the store, oh how times change! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dropbox.android&hl=en

Google Has Axed Postini

bva found out today that the rumors are true which we have know for some time.  Google will retire Postini, migrate features to Google Apps for all their 26 million users.  Google has built the e-mail security and archiving features into two Google Apps products, which it will transition to customers next year.  This will be an interesting transition and move over to a new platform.

The Web announced the transition today, saying that it has spent the last year building Postini’s features into Google Apps for Business, a professional suite, and Google Apps Vault, an e-mail archiving and discovery service.
“With this transition to Google Apps, you can receive similar email security, protection, and archiving, but through the more robust Google Apps service,” Google said in a company blog post. “Google Apps also works with mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes, so you don’t need to switch to Gmail.”

How customer services will transition:

Customers receiving information about the transition process at least 60 days before their migration is scheduled to begin. Customers who do not wish to transition to Google Apps will see their Postini service terminated at the end of their contract.

The service currently has about 26 million users. Google acquired Postini for $625 million in 2007.
