Dropbox 2.0 Hits the App Store

Posted in Apple News, Apps on 15/12/2012 by J. Glenn Künzler


Popular cloud storage provider Dropbox released the second major version of their iOS app today, bringing a completely redesigned interface, a new Photos tab, and a number of additional features and improvements. It also sports a lovely new icon!

 From the Dropbox blog:

New photos experience
Now all of your photos are right at your fingertips with the brand new Photos tab. With just a tap, you’ll be able to scroll through a timeline of all the photos you’ve automatically uploaded (including the pocket-dialed ones too). And since Dropbox is a one stop shop for all your memories, you can also check out the photos you’ve uploaded from everywhere else!  […]

Upload directly to folder
We’ve streamlined the way you upload to your Dropbox, too! Just navigate to the folder of your choice, then tap the “+” icon to upload something or create a new folder. You’ll love how easy it is.

Shiny new design
We’ve packed a ton of love and tiny details into our new iOS design, and we think you’ll dig its simplicity. For example, we got rid of the text labels on our tabs in favor of clean and streamlined iconography. Splashed across the app is the glorious Dropbox blue you’ve come to know and love, and we’ve reduced complexity to make everything feel so fresh and so clean, clean. […]

If you use Dropbox and don’t have the iOS app, I highly recommend downloading it and giving it a try – it’s free! Dropbox for iOS 2.0 is available immediately from the App Store:
