Posted on: July 10th, 2013 by ABC News No Comments

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Tech firm Dropbox says it now has more than 175 million customers, who use it to store videos, photos and other files.

Dropbox’s Sync API for iOS and Android makes it easier for smartphone and tablet owners to use Dropbox for file storage.  The goal — a major challenge to iCloud — is to put all users’ data on a single cloud platform.

“Sync is the new save,” says Dropbox CEO Drew Houston.  His aim is to sharply reduce the need for hard drives.
