Cloud computing is becoming all the rage. This week, we’re taking a closer look at one of the most popular cloud apps, Dropbox.

Dropbox is a free app that works with Mac, PC, iPhones and iPads, Blackberry and Android. You’ll get 2 gigabytes of storage space where you can upload pictures, music, documents, videos and more. When you install Dropbox on any of your devices, anything you store in the cloud is automatically and instantly available on those other devices. Change a few words in a document and Dropbox updates it everywhere . The app also lets you share files that are in your virtual space. If you’d want to show Mom pictures of her grandkids birthday party, simply send her a link and she can browse through the photos.

You can download Dropbox free at Dropbox.com. If 2 gigabytes isn’t enough storage space for you, there is a paid version that provides you with 50 gigabytes. The subscription is $9.99 a month, or pay for the year in advance at $99. There is also a professional version for small businesses that gives you up to 1 terabyte of storage.
