Dropbox’s Collaborative Note-Taking Service, Dropbox Notes, Heads Into Beta Testing | TechCrunch

A cloud collaboration contender

"Essentially, Dropbox’s Notes service is a lot like what was previously offered by the Y Combinator startup HackPad, which had grown to be a well-liked app for taking quick notes at conferences, events, and in the classroom. As it has now become the basis for Notes, it’s clear that Dropbox is not aiming to compete directly with Microsoft Office by offering its own robust, online document creation service in the cloud, like Google did with Google Drive (Docs), but is instead focused on making it easier to create simple notes as a part of Dropbox user’s daily workflow.

The new addition will also make Dropbox more usable on mobile devices, where people need a way to jot down quick ideas."
