We’ve all been there before: You’re at the airport, writing up a report on your laptop when you realize that your battery is running low and you left your charger at home. If you
save all your files to your Dropbox
, though, all’s not lost. With the Dropbox mobile app, you can pick up right where you left off — and keep chipping away at your assignment. Here are three ways to
stay productive with Dropbox
on your phone or tablet:
Edit Office files
Whether you’ve got an iOS or Android device, it’s easy to edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on the go thanks to the integration between
Microsoft Office and Dropbox
. Just launch Dropbox on your phone or tablet, find the file you’re working on — now
front and center on iOS
— and tap the edit icon. The file will automatically open in Office, where you can start making changes. The best part? Any edits you make will automatically sync to your Dropbox. So when you’re able to power up your laptop again, it’ll immediately download the latest version.
Share files with colleagues
Say you’ve made solid progress on your report, and you’re ready for an extra set of eyes to bring it one step closer to completion. Instead of sending the file to your reviewers as an email attachment, you can
share a link
to it directly from the Dropbox mobile app. Pro tip: People who view the shared link on the Dropbox website and or iOS app will be able to provide feedback via
. With all your feedback in one place, you won’t need to dig through ten different emails to find everyone’s suggestions.
Mark files as Favorites
If you regularly travel for work, you know that you can’t always rely on having Wi-Fi access or data coverage. That’s why the Dropbox mobile app lets you
mark files as Favorites
for offline access. Once you do, Dropbox will download a copy to your device so you can view it without an Internet connection. Productivity doesn’t have to stop just because your laptop does. With the Dropbox
by your side, you can keep working — wherever you are.
