Dropbox has released a big update for its Apple iOS apps that greatly improve using the cloud storage service on the iPhone and iPad. Dropbox has altered its design to include a simpler interface by streamlining the design to have fewer buttons and a cleaner appearance. The results of those efforts include a more visually-appealing design that also provides faster access to its core features, including quicker uploads. Users can now navigate to the folder they wish to add files and then tap a button to create a new folder or upload the files into the current directory.
The new Dropbox design includes a Photos tab that displays a timeline of all images that users have uploaded to Dropbox. The app supports automatic saving of photos and videos captured on an iPhone or iPad, and those images can be viewed within the app. Images can then be favorites, downloaded to an iOS device, or shared. The Photos tab includes images uploaded from other sources as well, and sharing options include email, text, Facebook, Twitter, and copying to the clipboard.
Dropbox is available for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices running iOS 5.0 or later.Dropbox
