Ready to try carousel?

Dropbox is one of the most powerful and useful cloud data storage services available. It’s a great way to use files across computers, backup important files, and share media with friends. As Dropbox has become a convenient home for files, the company has recently expanded the number of features it offers as well.

Now Dropbox has launched Carousel, a mobile app which is focused on backing up and sharing your photos. Available for both iPhone and Android devices, the app syncs to your Dropbox Camera Uploads folder.

According to this extensive hands-on review of Carousel:

“…if you’re already a Dropbox user, redundantly backing up images is never a bad idea, and you have nothing to lose with the Dropbox utility. Carousel, in this case, just makes everything easier to see, find, and share.”

It’s a handy app to share if you’re looking for ways to safely store and share family photos as well as scrapbooks of “dream home” ideas or interior decorating inspiration. Because it’s connected to your mobile device, it’s super easy to synchronize your photos-on-the-go to Dropbox’ cloud-based servers.
