Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Sync your Files with DroppedBoxx – WM Dropbox Client
As you may know, DropBox is a is a Web 2.0 based file hosting service which uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization.
XDA member d1k_is created a similar app to run on our Windows Mobile devices. Using the same principle as the desktop application, DroppedBoxx will allow users to upload and download files among other things.
Despite it´s beta state, this app has been reported to be working on VGA, WVGA and QVGA resolutions.

So I’ve been working on a Dropbox client for Windows Mobile called “DroppedBoxx”.
I’m after some feedback on it so far and possibly some testers…
- Login (of course)
- Browse Dropbox files and folders
- Download Files
- Download then email
- Upload files
- Take photo and upload
- Delete Dropbox Files
- Save Login/Session details
- Copy/move files around dropbox
- Sync Folders
- Record audio and upload
- Create new Folder
- Display account usage
- Track application (self) usage
File Menu and modal boxes dont always position correctly when switching landscape portrait
Modal Boxes backgrounds arent greyed out as I hoped (but at least you cant click stuff under it)
You can find more information in the application thread.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
