dropbox.com

Wow, I have found an awesome bit of software. It seems very similar to idisk but it works great.

Essentially you download and install the software from www.dropbox.com - create an account - and setup your dropbox folder. You dump any files you want to share on your other computers into this folder and they get synced up to the Internet. You get 2GB for free or pay $9.99 a month for 50GB.

Step two is to download the software on your next computer and put in your account details and you instantly have access to all the files and folders on your other computer via the dropbox folder.

Now here is the winner!! Yes, there is an app for that! A quick download and put in account details and i have access to all my files from my iphone. So I go to a meeting and need to access a contract or config document and it is right there. Wow, this is serious...

It is solutions that enable us to work better that i really love and this is one of them. True mobility...

Thanks to MacWorld for giving me this info. They have a great podcast that is worth listening to. I will post on a few other apps they mentioned are cool to use as well including launch bar which i haven't tried yet...
