Droplr is a cloud service that allows you to share images, files, links, notes and videos. It’s one of my favorite tools and I use them for email attachments, URL shortener, links on Twitter and screen captures. The iPhone app has been living in my home screen for quite sometime now. However, since there was no iPad app available, I was forced to use the iPhone version at 2X capacity. Yuk!
With their 3.0 update which was released yesterday, the app supports the iPad as a universal app. Gone are the days of running an iPhone version of the service, and now we get a powerful and beautiful experience.
When you open the app, you’ll see all of your “Drops” on a list on the left hand side. If you have shared any of those links, you’ll see some stats of how many times people have clicked on your links. When you select any of the drops, the content opens on the right hand side. You can see your links, images, videos and notes on the app. What’s great is that anytime you access your drops on the app, it doesn’t mess with your stats and count as hits. Awesome!
You can also have some functionality from the app. By selecting any drop, you have the following options:
- Copy: copy link so you can paste it wherever you want
- Share: email, iMessage, Twitter, Facebook, Assign to Contact, save to Camera Roll (if image), print or Open in Safari
- Public/Private: you can change the privacy of the link
- Edit Filename: You can change the name of the file
- Delete: Delete drop
Though Droplr is a free service for limited bandwith, you can buy their Pro service on the app itself via an in-app purchase. This gives you 100GB storage, larger drop uploads and the ability to use as a url shortener.
Overall, I’m glad that we finally get a native iPad Droplr app with full functionality. It was a long time coming!
Droplr is a fee app and it’s available on the App store.
