Octobox is a Dropbox interface add-on that people can use to collect all different types of files, including images, gifs, text notes, links, and webpage clippings. Because Octobox never actually touches information directly, its users’ files are kept securely and privately without any extra eyes looking in. The solution makes it incredibly easy for people to filter, sort, and browse the documents they’re planning on storing in Dropbox.
When the time comes to research a new work project or gather visual inspiration for an upcoming home redesign, join Octobox and link the application to your Dropbox account. Almost immediately, you’ll be able to pull information from anywhere on the web and organize it into what Octobox calls “collections” and “stacks.” You can also add tags for easier sorting. Edit the documents you collect in Markdown format with live renderings and to-do list support, and use Octobox’s browser extension to seamlessly grab links and clippings from your favorite websites.
All the files you collect with Octobox are stored in your Dropbox account, and you have the option of whether to share individual documents or entire stacks of content with your friends at any time. You can also access files from your hard drive and access older versions of your documents through the Dropbox website.
