Despite the increasing number of competing cloud storage platforms available for Macs, PCs, and mobile devices, Dropbox remains one of the most popular by far – and today, they’ve released a completely redesigned version of their Mac app to make the service even better! Dropbox 2.0 features an all-new drop-down interface, improved file sharing, the ability to accept or decline shared files from your menu bar, and more.

From the Dropbox blog:

Life (in Dropbox) moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. And with all the stuff you’ve got goin’ on, we figured it’d be handy for you to keep track of all your exploits in one place: the Dropbox menu! We’ve made it easier than ever to accept invitations to shared folders, see links or albums that people have shared with you, and keep tabs on what’s changed in your Dropbox.

If someone shares a link with you, you can now get to it immediately — directly from the Dropbox menu! You’ll get notifications in real time as people share with you, and can see them later just by clicking the Dropbox icon. You can also accept or decline invitations to shared folders directly from your desktop.

We’ve also made it easier to see what’s recently changed in your Dropbox and added a quick way to share your stuff with a link, right from the Dropbox menu.

Dropbox 2.0 looks great – I’ve been checking it out on my own Mac, and I’m thrilled with the changes and improvements they released today! In my book, this gives them one more edge over Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, and their other competitors, at least for now. The updated iOS and Android apps should be available to download soon as well – we’ll let you know when we see the updates come through!

In the meantime, Dropbox 2.0 for Mac is available now as a direct download from the Dropbox website. Enjoy!

Dropbox for Mac 2.0.
