    "The topic at hand was needing handy apps for the iphone or ipad, but I'm looking at a google play link here. The app itself isn't exactly what I'd call handy, despite how handy it is to have. I believe that this solution is not related to the current problem."

    "If you are trying to sync filed between people and different devices then Dropbox is a very handy app for your iPhone and iPad. If you need to transfer files between your devices, instead of hooking it up to your computer, just move it to your Dropbox and it's almost instantly available on your Apple devices."
