Dropbox announces new datastore APIs, 175 million users, 1 billion files synced daily

Insanely popular file-sharing service provider, Dropbox, kicked off its first ever developer conference called DBX today at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. And the main highlight of the event is the launching of a new suite of tools that aims to simplify how developers can build across devices and platforms.

Dropbox's so-called Dropbox Platform, which ambitions to replace hard drives, features a Datastore API. What it does is allow app data to be store and synched "effortlessly." By using the Datastore API, app data will be up-to-date across all devices whether a user is online or offline.

"Imagine a task-tracking app that works on both your iPhone and the web. If it’s built with the Datastore API, you can check off items from your phone during a cross-country flight and add new tasks from your computer and Dropbox will make sure the changes don’t clobber each other," says Dropbox CEO, Drew Houston.

The company also detailed the goodies they've been working on for the past months. One of them is "Drop-ins" which lets developers connect millions of Dropboxes with just a few lines of code. Another is a feature called "Chooser" that lets users access files from the web and from their mobile devices.

There's also "Saver" that works by saving files to Dropbox in just a click. Additionally, the company also announced the milestone of 175 million users and 1 billion files synced daily. Kudos to Dropbox!
