Dropbox users have a useful addition to the company's suite with the Carousel app for iOS and Android.

It's primarily for the disorganised who need an automated way to sort their images and video. Carousel handles this task efficiently, putting each file in its place by time, day and event for easy reference later.

The app literally puts together a slideshow of your lifetime memories and the backup to Dropbox is instant when you reel off a shot on your smartphone camera.

Sharing is the other most useful feature: when you sort through your images and video you swipe up to share or swipe down to hide.

Sharing is done via private conversation and it's not just one way, other Dropbox users can send you files to add to your catalogue by tapping on what they've sent you.

If your Dropbox files are in a cluttered desktop window, the move to a mobile app could be the push you need to organise.
