DropboxAutomater - Added features for your Dropbox Account

Automate your Dropbox

Everytime someone puts a file in our shared Dropbox folder,
I get a text message to my mobile - automatically!

Dropbox provides 2GB network space for free. Users can store any type of files and folders on Dropbox which can be synced with all devices. However, Software Engineer Manuel Berger, has taken Dropbox to the next level with DropboxAutomater.

DropboxAutomater is a free tool which allows you to specify custom actions on the files uploaded to your DropBox account. For example you can set DropboxAutomater to convert all files uploaded to folder 'Test1' to PDF format.
