DROPBOX- some clever tricks to know

leave a comment »


From undeleting old versions to getting more space, a guided tour of the many powerful features tucked away in Dropbox’s invaluable file-syncing software

Dropbox isn’t the only cloud storage and syncing service, but it is one of the most popular. The ease with which it shares files across OSes and hardware makes it valuable to businesses with workers spread across a large geographic area – and for individuals who don’t want to be tied to a single device, as Windows PCs, Macs, Android phones, iOS devices and even BlackBerrys are supported.

Its easy-to-use exterior masks a sophisticated back-end that’s capable of some very clever tricks. Not bad for a service that is, in its basic form, completely free.

If you’re not already using Dropbox, it’s simple to get started. Sign up for a free account at the Dropbox website and you’ll immediately receive a generous 2GB of storage. When you install the software, a folder will be created on your computer will henceforth sync with Dropbox’s servers – and with the Dropbox folders on any other computers on which you install the software.

How to delete an app directly from your iPhone

leave a comment »


Getting rid of apps on your device is like getting a high score on Angry Birds. Not so easy at first. Just takes practice and doing it a couple times- then you’re an expert 🙂

Here are 2 ways to delete an app directly from your iPhone without connecting to iTunes:


  1. Go to Settings, General, Usage– the list of apps will appear.
  2. Tap ‘show all apps’ to expand this list.
  3. Tap the right arrow next to your app and it will take you to the treasure.
  4. Tap DELETE APP. This also deletes all files associated with the app. It will remove the icon from your phones screen.

Note: ‘Usage’ also serves to show you how much space that app and files are taking up on your phone so you can see what’s chewing up all your memory.


  1. Press and hold on any icon until all the icons begin to “wiggle“.
  2. Tap the little “x” in the upper-left corner of the app you want to delete.
  3. A dialog box appears, informing you that deleting this app will also delete all its data.
  4. Tap the Delete button.

Note: Deleting it from your iPhone won’t get rid of it permanently. It uninstalls it only. The next time you sync, it will return to your iPhone. Connect to iTunes, check your app list ‘on your device’ and if it’s still there, to get rid of it for good, first remove it from your iTunes Library/Apps. Move it to the recycle bin and make sure to empty recycle/trash bin on your PC/Mac.
