Earn additional 5GB of Dropbox storage by using the new Dropbox beta (2.0.9)

Web-based file storage titan Dropbox has released a new beta upgrade of it’s Dropbox Android app, offering the ability to earn a whopping 5 extra GB of storage for your uploading pleasure. Among the awesome new features being implemented, automatic uploading of your photos and videos (in the background, yum!) as well as the demise of the 180MB limit, are the most enticing.

Interested in swallowing up the offered 5GB? You’ll have to get your photo journalism swag on, as subsequent to the first 500MB earned by your first automatic upload, you’ll recieve 500MB of storage for every 500MB of your photos and videos you automatically upload. Keep in mind however, that both the desktop and mobile earnings contribute to the same pot. Release notes after the break.

• 500MB of free space on first photo uploaded automatically
• Upload files of any size (no more 180 MB limit!)
