When the official Dropbox app was released for Android I was fairly relieved that it didn't sync. There is way more crap in my Dropbox than I would ever need on my phone. DropSpace, however, takes a nice approach to "syncing" your files to and from Dropbox. DropSpace allows you to map files and folder on your SD card to any file or folder stored in your Dropbox account. In other words, it doesn't just mirror your file system both places. I like this very much and I really doubt that if the official Dropbox app ever adds syncing that it will work this way. So I can sync the contents of /mnt/sdcard/DCIM/Camera on my phone to /Photos/Mobile on Dropbox. This I like. :) Any of you Dropbox users out there think that DropSpace is something you would use?</p>
