Dropbox For Windows 8 Now Available

Posted on Jan 7 2013 - 7:50pm by Chad Buenaflor

The Dropbox app for Windows 8 is finally available for download over at the Windows Store. This app was submitted to Microsoft last month for review and is now fully certified to run on Windows 8 and Windows RT. If you’ve been holding off upgrading your current operating system due to lack of Dropbox support on Windows 8 then now is the time to do so.

The app now adopts the familiar tiled user interface and comes with Facebook sharing as well. Some of its key features include.

  • Browse and preview all of your files and photos on Dropbox
  • Open, edit and save files from other Windows 8 apps
  • Share any photo, file or folder with the Share Charm
  • Find your files with the Search Charm

The company has recently reached the 100 millionth user milestone and has announced that they will be opening their first office outside of the U.S. which will be located in Ireland.

Those familiar with cloud storage solutions will definitely be familiar with Dropbox. This service allows you to upload files to the company servers (cloud) and access them through any device as long as it is connected to the Internet.

There are various accounts to choose from starting with Free, Pro and Business. Regular users prefer to use the free account which gives 2 GB of free storage and can go all the way up to 18 GB which you can increase by getting referrals (500 MB space increase per referral).

Those looking for a much larger storage space might prefer to go for the paid Pro account where you have the option to choose from 100 GB, 200 GB and 500 GB of online storage space. Pricing for this starts at $9.99 per month.

Businesses on the other hand can choose the Business plan which not only provides an online storage solution but a way for you to share files easily with your team as well.
