Nothing like getting free Dropbox space to make your day a bit brighter. No matter how much Dropbox space you’ve earned, you can always use a bit more free space. By taking a few minutes of your time, you can get a whole 1 GB of free Dropbox space.
What You’ll Need
1. A Dropbox account. (See Dropbox: The Cloud + Local in Harmony to learn more about Dropbox)
2. A Gmail account.
3. An iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
4. The Mailbox app.
5. The Dropbox app.
6. A hammer.
Just kidding about the hammer…
How to Get the Free Space
2. Log into your Gmail account on the Mailbox app (Mailbox only supports Gmail for now) and into your Dropbox account on the Dropbox app.
3. Open the Mailbox app and press the three stacked bars icon in the upper left corner, revealing the dashboard in the left column. Press Settings => Dropbox => Add Dropbox Account.
You’re done, other than reveling in the extra 1 GB you have of free storage in your Dropbox account.
You can now delete the Mailbox app, but you may want to give it a whirl. You could end up liking Mailbox and keeping it on your iPhone.
Here’s a video demonstrating how Mailbox works:
You can attach Dropbox files to your emails from within the Mailbox app so you may find it very handy, especially now that you have that extra 1 GB of space.
If you were already using Mailbox and had previously linked your Dropbox account, unlink your Dropbox account (press Edit in Settings and delete the account) and then link it again to get the 1 GB of extra space.
