Mailbox launched on iOS last year, and users were impressed with its ability to efficiently manage a flood of email. The response was so good, Dropbox bought the company. Now an updated version of Mailbox is on Android for you to try with your Gmail or iCloud account.

Dropbox is probably the king of cloud storage. Well, if not the king, at least a high-ranking duke or something. So a great many people will be happy to hear the app is getting an update today to version 2.4, bringing with it a few design tweaks, as well as an interesting feature for linking new computers.

Most people rely on Amazon, Google, Barnes and Noble, or some other all-in-one ebook service for their digital literary fix, but there is a thriving community of users who prefer the flexibility and lack of DRM that comes with independent reading apps. This has led to more than a few excellent choices in the space, including Readmill, an ebook app dedicated to simplicity and readability. Apparently Readmill users aren't the only ones who were impressed: Dropbox has acquired the app (or at least hired the employees who made it) and the service is shutting down.

We've been trying to keep our heads up about the Lenovo-Motorola deal, but let's be honest: news like this is not encouraging. A Wall Street Journal report claims that Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside, whom many had credited with the company's impressive new product lines in 2013, is leaving for Dropbox. Woodside began working for Motorola after more than ten years at Google, succeeding Sanjay Jha after Google acquired the company.

The Wall Street Journal cites three anonymous sources in its detailed report, but Google confirmed the news shortly thereafter.

If you're a cloud storage junkie and you haven't checked out Copy, shame on you. It's your typical Dropbox/Google Drive/Skydrive/Box.net competitor with a twist: shared files and folders can be assigned to a single user so that they don't count against the data storage limit for other users. The previous version of the app wasn't exactly up on the latest visual design trends, but now Copy has a much cleaner look.

Dropbox gives every user 2GB of free space, but with all of us able to get up to 16GB through referrals and additional space just by activating certain devices, enticing users to go pro can be easier said than done. So the company has been adding in improvements to make the process largely painless. The last update made it possible to hand over your money by taking a snapshot of your credit card that could be used to auto-fill the requisite information.

Dropbox's Android client received an update today, adding a few new features to the file-sharing service's mobile software, as well as introducing a new, cleaner (inverted?) logo.

The newest version of Dropbox now supports direct sharing of files to all of your contacts via email from inside the app, via the newly-added contacts permission. Just choose the share action on a file, hit "send to contact," enter the appropriate info, and Dropbox will send the share link to them immediately.

It was only about six weeks ago that we were reporting on the shiny new Android app from Sold, the dead-simple aftermarket service that promised to make getting cash for your used gadgets and other semi-precious items as easy as dropping them in a box. This morning the company announced that they had been acquired by cloud storage giant Dropbox for an undisclosed sum.

As of now, Sold is not accepting new items for cash sales.

If you need to mass spam - I mean, notify - a bunch of people at once, Everypost might be the app you need. With Everypost, users can upload photos, videos, or text and blast it out to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, and other networks, including the anti-social Dropbox. As social networking continues to grow in importance, tools like this are real time-savers. But here's the thing, there are plenty of options out there, so is Everypost worth your time?

A week or two after Chromecast hit the streets, we started to see all kinds of unofficial applications for Google's HDMI streamer, many of which came from CyanogenMod Team member and ClockworkMod creator Koushik "Koush" Dutta. Now he's worked around the developer whitelist for Chromecast, allowing his app to be used on any Android device and with any Chromecast. He's calling it AirCast, and it's available for a test download now.
