1Password (free for iOS and Android, and $50 for Mac and Windows)
Create powerful passwords for all of your accounts and save the passwords on an encrypted Dropbox file. This way you don’t have to memorize the passwords you’ve created and you can access the passwords on all of your devices whenever you want. What I love the most about this application is that it can also periodically check through your logins and inform you when sites are compromised, this way you can immediately change your current password.
DBinbox allows you to send and receive files that are too big for an email. I’ve found this to be quite useful as I am quite the chatter box when I talk to my friends via email. You can even send up to 20MB per file on the free version.
Scanbot (free, iOS and Android)
This app that can scan any document using your phone’s camera and you can quickly store it in the cloud. The scans can be converted into JPEG or PDF. The app also allows you to highlight information in PDFs, add comments, or add your signature. I definitely love Scanbot. I wish I would have known about it sooner than later as it could have saved me from so much trouble in the past but I’m so glad that I eventually found out about it.

Record an audio note as a voicemail and upload the MP3 to Dropbox
Once activated, IFTTT will give you with a number to call. When you leave a voicemail for that number, the audio will be converted into an MP3 and sent to your Dropbox account. This has been useful for me as I’m not able to send them via e-mail.
