I am a huge fan of keeping things in the cloud for both backup purposes as well as for sharing. Dropbox became my preferred cloud-storage utility a long time back, and the Android app is nothing short of a perfect mobile extension.
As I tend to use more than one Android handset or tablet at a time, it can become quite tedious to keep track of all the photos and videos I capture. To do so, I take advantage of the "share" feature built into Android and toss all my media into a Dropbox folder. Now I have one large, centrally stored folder where I can access or share with others, regardless of where I am.
I'll sometimes put large PDF files into a folder so that I can read them later on my tablet or share them with colleagues. The app lets me create new folders on the fly, immediately accessible from anywhere I happen to log in. What's more, I can also set up sharing options for files or folders so that others can check out my vacation photos. Because everyone loves that.
