Getting free Dropbox storage is always nice, and the company just keeps adding new and interesting ways of racking up extra MBs. The latest, Camera Upload, is a new feature that allows compatible Android and iPhone smartphones running the latest version of the Dropbox app to automatically upload new photos and video to the service as you shoot them. And for every 500MB of photos/video you upload, you’ll get 500MB of free storage – up to 3GB.
Of course, once you’ve earned that free space, you can always delete the photos or video files to keep your Cloud drive from becoming cluttered, but since the free space grows as you upload new content, you don’t have to worry much about it.
Extra free space can also be earned by uploading media when connected to your computer as long as you have the latest version of Dropbox running on your PC or Mac.

If you’re a fan of Google Voice and a Sprint wireless customer, today you have good reason to celebrate; Google and Sprint have joined together to give users unprecedented Google Voice customization on their mobile phones.
Here’s how it works: if you have a Sprint mobile phone, you can now choose to use your existing mobile number as your Google Voice number, or to have your Google Voice number take the place of your Sprint phone number. Whichever option you select, the number – when dialed – can be configured to ring multiple phones (your Sprint phone, home, office, vacation home, etc.) so you never miss a call. Google Voice voicemail service will replace the existing service, and the same basic Google Voice features remain such as transcribed voicemail, email and/or text message alerts, etc. International calls will also be made using your Google voice number for reduced per minute fees.
This service is compatible with all Sprint-branded handsets, including Sprint Android phones.
While the service is free, minutes used continue to be deducted from your monthly voice allotment. You must have a Google Voice account as well.
Learn more by visiting the Google Voice + Sprint web page or by taking a look at the video after the jump.

We’re huge fans of Dropbox, but until now there’s been no easy way to access the files stored there from a Windows Phone – or to upload new files to the service - without using a mobile browser. CloudFiles, a new app from Ruttensoft, changes all that, providing mobile Dropbox connectivity and functionality for Windows Mobile.
Compatible with Windows Mobile 6.x touchscreen smartphones, CloudFiles allows you to browse your Dropbox files, upload new files, create and edit folders, view account information, and even create a Dropbox account if you don’t already have one.
CloudFiles is currently in beta, so it’s free for now. Check out the video below to see the software in action.
