Dropbox had released their latest update 2.0 for the iOS with a fresh new look and new User Interface (UI). Their boast? They refined photo experience in the iOS.
For those who are not familiar what Dropbox is, here is a brief summary. Dropbox is a file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. that offers cloud storage, file synchronization and client software (ref: Wikipedia). This service was highly appreciated among mobile users especially that you can store not only your documents but also your photos and just anything else. This works by downloading the app on your iPhone, installing the app in your Mac or PC or access to Dropbox website so you can upload the file from any of the apps. It will then be synchronized to all your devices that use the same account.
The latest update of Dropbox gave the both the iPhone and iPad a massive change in the way thet they upload, organize and display photos that are better. Focusing in photos is their priority in the new interface giving a smooth and powerful gallery browsing so you will not have problem flipping to hundreds of photographs. In the past 2 updates, they have introduced also the automatic uploading to your Dropbox app after you took a photograph so you can have a back up anywhere you go. Of course, internet connection is required to use this service.
Here’s the official statement from Dropbox released in their blog:
“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!
Also, when you select a photo, you’ll be able to view it in full-screen glory with nary a button in sight. This means you can get maximum real estate when you’re flipping through puppy photos, or those pics of your bare feet. And to make things even better, our new speedy scroller will help you navigate all the way back to time immemorial (or your earliest photos) in seconds. Even if you have “Billions and Billions” of them.”
Have you tried using Dropbox? You really have to check it out if you haven’t. I can’t have my iPhone without.
