[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Spotdox is the missing link for your Dropbox - but is Dropbox going to like it?
Spotdox, a new creation of a Toronto based company, allows you to use your phone or any web client to not only browse your entire Dropbox but see all the files on your computer (Mac OS X currently) back at the office, home or even hotel room.
"The free Dropbox account limits you to just a few GB of space, and while a paid account increases that limit, there is no way for Dropbox to offer multi - terabyte access," says Tom Andersen, one of the founders. "With Spotdox, you can access your entire Mac, and all the drives on it. You can pick any of the millions of files on your MacBook to share with others, or simply add to your Dropbox. In many ways this is like having a huge multi terabyte Dropbox account."
Your computer can be accessed from your Android device, iPhone or web browser. With no extra passwords to remember (other than your Dropbox one), usage and installation is simple. It supports multiple computers on the same Dropbox account as well.
The software also allows you to Move files from your Dropbox onto your Mac, freeing up Dropbox space without having to delete files. This enables you to for example upload holiday photos to Dropbox from your phone, then later move them to to your Mac. This is another way you get more mileage from your Dropbox, without having to pay for an upgraded account.
The startup is offering the first 10,000 customers a free lifetime subscription to the service, which will eventually retail for about $30 per year. "We realize that the best advertising is often done by the early adopters of a technology. So we are giving away 10,000 lifetime licences," said James Palmer, the other half of this Toronto area company.
