Dropbox for iOS updated to version 2.0
This entry was posted on Saturday, December 15, 2012.
The most popular cloud based storage service Dropbox has recently rolled out an update to their iOS app, which is the first major update to the app’s UI. The update also improves the photo sharing and photo viewing experience within the app. A new Photos tab lets you view all the photos saved in your Dropbox account, in a timeline view. Photo browsing has been made smother and more intuitive, removing the list view from the photo gallery and adding thumbnail view, similar to iPhone’s photo gallery.
The user interface has been completely revamped and has been made a lot cleaner and simpler. Contextual menus are another good addition. Now photos can be added to a folder by simply navigating to it, and opening the upload menu. Text labels have been replaced with icons, which makes the app look slicker than before. Consistent color scheme are seen throughout the app, which is a big improvement over the previous versions in terms of visuals. While viewing a photo in full-screen, the user has options to share the photo over Facebook, via email or Twitter. Now direct links can also be opened from the full screen view.
The Dropbox app is available free of cost on the Apple app store. The service is free for all users, albeit with limited storage space. More space can be purchased by buying an annual subscription.
