Dropbox provides LAN Sync for PCs to save time & money. Is there any way to enable it for Android devices? All Dropbox sync apps use only internet for syncing.
What you can do is use both Dropbox and a LAN syncing tool like Unison. I couldn't find any LAN syncing tool for Android but if you mount your device in Mass Storage Mode, running Unison purely on your PC should yield acceptable performance. It may also be possible to compile Unison on Android (it works on GNU/Linux), but that would be fairly difficult.
In the latest version of Dropbox (2.1.1) there is an option to have your photos automatically uploaded, "Camera Upload" in Dropbox settings. That has a option which lets you specify whether to upload over Cellular Data or wait for a WiFi connection.
Other than Camera Upload, Dropbox hasn't yet enabled syncing for other folders or items between Dropbox/PC and a phone.
