Transferring files between an iPad and a desktop/laptop PC - or another mobile device - is not always effortless, not least because the iPad's official email app doesn't have a 'click to attach file' button. So say hello to: Dropbox, a cloud-based storage service that automatically syncs files placed across different devices and offers users 2GB of free storage (and more for a fee).?
?The Dropbox iPad app (shown above) enables easy file-sharing between a desktop computer and the tablet. Touch the '+' sign in the bottom left-hand corner of the app and files stored locally on the iPad can be uploaded to the dropbox - and from there moved over to a Mac or PC.
