Found Footage: MacOSXTutorials explores Mac Dropbox tips



As a Dropbox fan, I am always looking for new uses for the ubiquitous cloud storage service. Matt Fisher, whose videos have been featured on TUAW before, has produced a new video chock-full of great Mac OS X Dropbox tips.

In this 10-minute clip, Matt shows:
  • How to copy the Mac clipboard to a Dropbox text file by creating an Automator service
  • A demo of AirDropper, an excellent way of securely requesting files from others and having them delivered via Dropbox
  • How to email files to Dropbox using Habilis
  • A quick way to access your Dropbox using a Chrome Extension (also available for Firefox)
  • Start torrents from any computer or device connected to Dropbox
  • Add PDFs to iBooks
  • Edit files from anywhere using Droptext
Some of these tips are rather straightforward, while others are incredible "why didn't I think of that" ideas that can really help make you more productive. What are your favorite things to do with Dropbox and your Mac? Leave us a comment.
