Dropbox is a web-based app that lets you synchronize your files across computers. You can also access your files on the go using the web interface or the Dropbox mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, or Android. This week the company also launched a beta version of a BlackBerry app.

The Dropbox BlackBerry app is only available to a small group of beta testers at the moment. You can try to sign up at dropbox.com/blackberrybeta. But the first 500 testing slots went pretty quick, so the Dropbox team opened up more… which also disappeared in the blink of an eye. So don’t be surprised if you have a hard time signing up.

The Dropbox BlackBerry app only officially supports BlackBerry OS 5.0. Download Squad’s Matthew Rogers reports that it will run on earlier versions of the operating system, but it’s very buggy.
