Dropbox has launched an update to its iOS application and now supports automatic video and photo uploads.

Just like the company did when they first introduced the feature on Android, to motivate users to use the new service, Dropbox will match every uploaded megabyte with a megabyte of free cloud storage up to a total 3GB (was 500MB in previous version).

Certainly, that might pique the interest of enough people considering that it's a hefty tally that we don't traditionally offered with devices. Once the first year is over, however, you won't be left out on the curb because Dropbox will still continue to give Galaxy Tab 2 owners a decent 2GB+ of storage for any free account. And if you happen to continue using the tablet for a second year, an additional 3GB of storage will be available to you.

Dropbox Android Developing forum always like to share the latest BETA build of the App. Today, they have a New BETA version of Dropbox for Android devices with improved video playback, as well as the ability to open Dropbox files directly from other applications, adding some bug fixes and thumbnail for video files.

The New BETA also include some NEW features such as UI improvements for the Nexus 7 tablet. We found Dropbox to be immensely useful and streamlined on the Nexus 7 even before the beta came out, so it's good to see the company strive to make the experience even better.

Dropbox is an online file storage service that automatically syncs files between all your computers and devices. You are given 2GB of free storage, and can pay monthly for more. On the desktop versions you interact with Dropbox through a folder, within which every single file is backed up and synced. This syncing happens in the background and is nearly instantaneous.


The Newer Features

The latest 2.0 update has drastically improved and overhauled the Dropbox app, so lets look a little closer at these newer features. Also Dropbox Now Optimized for Android Ice cream sandwhich 4.0 and the Galaxy Nexus.


Multi Upload

The new multi uploading ability has proven to be a real time saver for me. This ability to upload numerous files at once really pushes the power of Dropbox on your phone, allowing for easier backing up of important files.


However, when using this to sync all 400 photos taken on my phone I realised that a "select all" feature was desperately needed! Each file must be selected individually; this is fine when dealing with a few files, but as the number of files increases this gets a lot more tiresome. But perhaps this was intentionally left out, in case some people tried to upload 400 photos at once.


Uploading files takes seconds


Before, navigating to a file through the app involved a lot of browsing through directories to get to the right location. Now, if you know you will need a file again soon, or use it frequently, you are able to "favorite" it. This places a shortcut to the file in a easily accessible section of the app, as shown in the screenshots below:


Favorites allows for quick access to those important files

The File Previewer

It is a real pity that this aspect is so underdeveloped, as it would really add to the uses of Dropbox: it could function as a streaming media player, on top of everything else. Even just allowing these files to open with the phone’s default app would be an amazing improvement, in my opinion.

The UI of the app got a total makeover. It now looks a lot cleaner, with file access made much easier, and the number of steps required to upload files greatly reduced.

Dropbox has confirmed that it will be ending public folder support from the beginning of August, though the change will only impact new accounts and new public shares. "After July 31, 2012, we will no longer create Public folders in any new Dropbox accounts" the company said today, having emailed developers with the news last night. "Public folders in existing accounts, however, will continue to function as before."

"In April, we launched the ability to share any file or folder in your Dropbox with a simple link" Dropbox wrote on its company offiical blog. "This new sharing mechanism is a more generalized, scalable way to support many of the same use cases as the Public foldeR, If your app depends on Public folders, we recommend switching to the /shares API call."




Google Drive might be the New star in the cloud storage, but this will not stop Dropbox from Updating and improving its own service. The company has been testing an automatic photo and video upload feature since February, now its rolling-out this feature to all Dropbox users on Mac and Windows. So Update your App to get an Extra 3GB to your Dropbox account storage.
