Dropbox Updates With Notifications & Sharing on Android, Redesign & AirDrop on iOS
Dropbox is one of the must-have apps on iPhone and it’s just gotten a whole lot better with Dropbox 3.0, which is redesigned for iOS 7 and brings a bunch of new features like AirDrop support. And it’s not ignoring Android either, bringing a new notifications feed and enhanced sharing options.
The app looks cleaner and simpler with its new iOS 7-inspired redesign. “We considered every aspect of the app, took the time to make sure we did a thorough job, and simplified a whole bunch of stuff,” Dropbox said in a blog post.
Dropbox 3.0 for iOS also includes AirDrop support to easily share files between different devices and apps . It also brings full-screen view, saves videos to your library, and is faster than ever before, apart from squashing a few bugs.
On Android, Dropbox now has a new notifications feed to show you an activity log of what people have shared with you. But more importantly, it’s gained a new ability to share files with non-Dropbox users via email. Tap the ‘Share’ button on any file and choose ‘Send to Contact’ to share a link to that file with anyone in your contacts list. Pretty neat!
Of course, just because you can share more doesn’t mean you should. Don’t be a Dropbox jerk and make sure you adhere to some cloud file-sharing etiquette .
