Dropbox vs Dropmark: What are the differences?

What is Dropbox? Build the power of Dropbox into your apps. Harness the power of Dropbox. Connect to an account, upload, download, search, and more.

What is Dropmark? Dead simple collaboration in the cloud. Dropmark offers super simple drag-and-drop file sharing, like a number of web apps before it, but if you want to use it for more you can create presentations, slideshows, and collaborate with others just as easily.

Dropbox and Dropmark can be categorized as "File Storage" tools.

Some of the features offered by Dropbox are:

  • Dropbox Chooser- Get files from Dropbox into your web app with just a few lines of JavaScript.
  • Sync API- Read and write to Dropbox from iOS & Android as if it were a local filesystem.
  • Core API- The basics. Upload, download, search, and more from your web or mobile app.

On the other hand, Dropmark provides the following key features:

  • Drag & Drop- Drag and drop files right from your desktop or web browser. Your files will be automatically uploaded to the cloud.
  • Collaborate with your team- Invite colleagues to view and collaborate privately. Share your work with clients and skip e-mail and social media clutter. No sign up required for invited guests.
  • Fullscreen presentations- Say goodbye to Powerpoint. Every Dropmark collection can be viewed as a fullscreen presentation. Mix images, videos, websites, and more.

"Easy to work with" is the primary reason why developers consider Dropbox over the competitors, whereas "Reliable" was stated as the key factor in picking Dropmark.

Due to we are using G Suite for emails, Google Drive comes out of the box.

In Google Drive we keep save just some basic marketing files. We used it as a single repository to share files between designers and developers. Nothing more than that. In some moment we had some backups there, but just for security reasons, we removed it

Key criteria for that choice. I needed a collaborative backup tool for a 15 people team. All people would have access to both their individual private space that should synchronize automatically to/from their desktop and various shared spaces, with various kinds of access rights. Only Box would allow high fine tuning of the access rights. Multi-platform was important too. The ease to transfer ownership of a folder from one departing colleague to their N+1 was a real plus.
