If you own an Android running device or the famous iPhone is it very unlikely that you haven’t heard the name Dropbox. While the standard application is free it does however have kind of a disadvantage for people who want to store all their information in the cloud, limited space. There are a couple of ways one can increase the available space in Dropbox, but they are all tedious and require time. This latest method however can change the lack of space to abundance.
While the standard app comes with a rather modest 2 GB of free space, the Dropbox application extracted from the HTC One X ups that to a whopping 23 GB. This means that by simply installing the application present in the HTC One X you could have more than 10 times the space a free user has, but there is a small catch. The offer is only valid for two years, and after that you will revert to the standard 2 GB. Thanks to the guys over at xda-developers for getting their hands on the APK file.
If you fancy having as much space as possible even for a limited amount of time, you can safely follow the guide below and start thinking with what you will be filling up all that empty extra storage space. The only thing missing for everybody to fill up that amount of space is an increase in the upload speed, but that is not such a big problem for those of you who fancy uploading content only from the PC.
All you have to do in order to gain all this extra space is follow the steps below:
- If you already have the Dropbox app installed on your Android device, you must Clear data, Force close and finally uninstall it from Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Dropbox.
- Download and install this Dropbox+23GB APK and be sure to enable installation of apps from unknown sources under Settings > Applications or Settings > Security (on ICS) before installing the APK file.
- Launch the app as usual and log in.
- Wait for the confirmation email. It can take up to 30 min for the email to arrive, but once it does you can start uploading all of your favorite music or tons of images and other files to the Dropbox cloud storage platform.
This is all you need to know in order to install the HTC One X Dropbox application and get that extra storage. Be sure to let us know your feelings in the comment section below.
