The Pixelapse Blog • Pixelapse + Dropbox

The race to provide the best features has begun ... after Photo upload (now matched by other sync services) Dropbox is reaching again towards the creative users by buying the collaboration platform Pixelapse. I've tried it, and found it interesting but not ready for my workflow. Design review is hard - but if you can do it with a tool you already use it might get a better adoption than other tools.

Finally a way to backup your Bitly (bitmarks) links

I've setup a quick recipe that appends new links to a textfile in dropbox - so go ahead and tinker with it to your liking and get a copy of your shortened links.
