There are many services available that allow users to share files over the Internet, such as documents, photos, videos, and music. These services become much more efficient and popular if they create an app to be used on smartphones such as the iPhone, Palm webOS, BlackBerry, or Android phones. Well, Dropbox has recently announced in an email that a Dropbox app will become available for Android and BlackBerry soon.

The email wasn’t really specific as to a time the app would become available. But the fact that it is coming is sure to make paid and free users happy. Basically, you upload whatever media you want to your own account and give away a link that can be used to download it. The app on an Android or BlackBerry phone makes sharing media files that much simpler and effective. Currently, a SugarSync app is available on the Android market, which is similar to Dropbox. Both services allow free accounts to use 2GB of online space, and paid accounts receive higher storage.
