So when you have something you need to access the files you want, you can do it with so many ways.  And with the use of dropbox api, many applications are able to connect to your dropbox and update or retrive the data for you.

Once you’ve installed dropbox on your PC, Mac or your mobile device you’re ready to upload or share files on your dropbox. Just move the files and folders you want onto your dropbox folder or application and they will be updated on the dropbox web server for you to use it anytime you please.
