Tried it Tuesday: Using Dropbox from Your Ipad or Iphone

Today I'm linking up with Holly over at Fourth Grade Flipper to talk about something I learned this week.  Honestly, this one has nothing to do with actually teaching my smarties.  It's 100% about what I learned from my awesome BBB's Erin and Jessica.  

We were talking about seeing a ton of great freebies out there on TpT and I was whining...because I always see an awesome flash freebie while I'm out and not near my computer.  Erin was totally kind and pointed me to a post Jivey had written about using Dropbox.  You can go {HERE} and check out all of the details, I won't steal her great post by rewriting it.  But I will tell you to go out and download that app!  I have used Dropbox frequently since the summer to send things to school as I have needed them, but duh!  I never realized it would work via my phone.  It makes me so thankful for blogging buddies like Erin and Jess who point me in the right direction when my head is spinning. <hee-- hee> 
And, speaking of being thankful for great BBBS, stop by and visit Holly.  She and I bonded over being Buffalo Bills fans, and even with their loss on Sunday, we BILLIEVE!


  1. Ummm...I'm sitting here scratching my head asking myself why I have never used Dropbox on my phone either. I use it all the time on the computer. Thanks for the suggestion! I am forever emailing myself stuff, dropping things into Dropbox, Draggo, Evernote, Wunderlist...I need to pick one thing and stick to it.

  2. I love dropbox and added it to my ipad after reading Jivey's post...such a great idea!

  3. Thank you for this! It drove me crazy when I would read Facebook or blogs on my phone in bed and miss out on the flash freebies. This is the best tip of the day - no month!

  4. I LOVE using Dropbox on my phone! Such a time saver and great for flash freebies! :)


  5. Going to download that app now! I never see the flash freebies on my phone anyway! You'll need to text me when something exciting is happening Michele!

  6. I was just in this predicament a couple days ago! I always wondered if this takes up data or memory usage on the iphone though? I seem to never have enough and am constantly having to delete things. The iPhone thing is still new to me and I just need to figure it out. Thanks for the reminder and for linking up!

  7. Great tip! I'm often on my ipad sitting on the couch in the evenings and don't have the energy to go open up the laptop to download something. Didn't know dropbox had an app! I'm downloading as we speak on my phone and ipad!
