Short takes: eXo Cloud,, Mailbox, Dropbox

eXo, the social intranet company, announced its cloud service a few weeks ago, eXo Cloud.The free service provides a broad range of integrated social tools, including wiki, file management, a social stream, and calendars (including task management), derived from the company’s flagship on-premise offering. The solution includes mobile apps (iOS and Android) as well., the co-curation tool I reviewed recently (seeĀ Dispatch is a social layer for file-basedĀ collaboration), has repositioned the product as team email without changing functionality. It’s just different words on the landing page, but that might be effective. Note that this isn’t an email client, it’s simply a way to manage an on-going group email dispatch service.

Dropbox integration has come to the iOS Mailbox app, announced at the first Dropbox Developer Conference (DBX) on 9 July. Orchestra, the company behind Mailbox was acquired last March, a month after launching. This integration takes advantage of a new Dropbox Datastore API announced at the conference.
