Cloud-based file-sharing service Dropbox has quickly grow to be a favorite of computer users due to its simpleness and power. But these days Dropbox has a new mission, according to TechCrunch writer Matthew Panzarino. According to him, the company now hopes to be the cloud’s default photo-sharing service. And, due to a new Mac app that automatically detects, uploads and produces shared links to the screenshots you produce on your computer, Dropbox is one step closer to fulfilling this objective.
A subset of users
Panzarino writes that this new Dropbox feature will only benefit a niche group of users, those like journalists, app developers and heavy Twitter users who take lots of screenshots. But that's not important. What's important is the fact that Dropbox has taken another step towards being the top photo-sharing service on the Web.
What it means to you
This can make life easier for you, by the way. Wouldn’t it be simple to have Dropbox detect that photo you just took on your smartphone and upload it automatically to your Dropbox account? That day might not be far-off.
A peek into the future
This might even make sharing and storing photos an easy, hassle-free process, which it certainly has not been up to this point. It’s too early to tell if Dropbox will succeed in its quest to become the top photo-sharing service in the cloud. Nevertheless the service is certainly off to a good start.
