Moving files around is an important part of getting things done. Whether you're working with somebody across the hall or across the country, you both need to be on the same page, and often that means looking at the same report or other document. There are lots of different ways to share files, some more complicated than others, running the gamut from terse and unfriendly FTP up through high-priced proprietary systems. Many folks have decided that Dropbox does the job for them. Here's a way to make that an even better tool.

AirDropper is a service that lets you get more mileage out of your Dropbox account. When you need to get a file from somebody, you just email them. The message they receive has a secure link that they can use to upload the requested file to your Dropbox account. They don't have to jump through a bunch of hoops—especially useful if they're not the most tech-savvy person in your group—and you get your file without having to give out your login credentials, so everybody wins. It boasts all kinds of useful features, like multiple file uploads and SSL security.

AirDropper is a free online service. You'll also need a Dropbox account.
