Look out, iCloud: Dropbox adds photo syncing for Android

TechCrunch is reporting popular cloud-based file storage and retrieval service Dropbox has added automatic photo syncing to its service. According to writer Jason Kincaid: ” [Dropbox is] launching a new version of their Desktop and Android clients that’ll automatically upload your photos to your Dropbox account. Snap a few photos on your phone, and, without having to hook up any wires, they’ll be on your computer within a minute or two.”

Dropbox competes with Google+ and Apple’s iCloud, but the cross-platform Dropbox has a bigger installed base than both, the article notes.
