Most of us know that Drop­box is a cloud stor­age ser­vice that syncs files in a folder on your Mac with your ac­count in the cloud.

There is, how­ever, a great deal more to Drop­box than just stor­ing, sync­ing, and shar­ing files. Firstly, there’s the abil­ity to use the Drop­box iOS app to au­to­mat­i­cally up­load pho­tos taken with your iPhone or iPad to Drop­box. You choose which pho­tos or other files to up­load and where in your Drop­box ac­count to store them.

Then there’s copy­ing a Drop­box link to your clip­board with a click, and thanks to iOS share sheets, you can push files to your Drop­box ac­count from other apps, like Pho­tos.

These lesser-known Drop­box fea­tures will help you get as much from it as pos­si­ble. Kenny Hem­phill

The Drop­box app on iPad al­lows you to re­name files and move them to dif­fer­ent fold­ers eas­ily.
