Is Instagram An Instant Winner On Android?

Android Instagram App

The famous iPhone photo sharing app, Instagram, is now available on Android and is pissing off iPhone users everywhere. It saw over 1 million downloads on it’s first day in the Google Play Store. It has seen a lot of success on the iOS platform with over 30 million users thinking they are all the best photographers in the world. This is mostly attributable to its simple way of taking normal photos and adding some basic filters and effects to them in order to help everyone seem like a hipster.

Free File Syncing Across Your Devices

A pretty common question that I get asked is how to sync your files to the web and other devices. I have one solution that I pretty much give to everyone, DropBox.

This service is tech as hell so you don’t have to be. In short, it works like this: DropBox creates folders on your computer that all behave like the normal folders you are used to, when you put files or other folders into these folders all of that stuff gets synced to the web. Install it, move some files or folders into DropBox, win. It is so super simple even computer idiots like my friends or mother can do it. Beyond the app’s extreme simplicity in terms of use, it is also a great solution because it works across pretty much every device. So, whether you are on a Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, or whatever, it still works! You can also access all of your files online from anyone’s computer, anywhere. Seriously, I don’t even use flash drives any more.

Some other great features from DropBox:
-2GB free
-File Versions (they keep backup files of your files, so if you accidentally erase or save over something, you can restore it)
