Since Dropbox was released, it has become a very useful tool for many businesses. Despite this fact, Dropbox today released Dropbox for Business, which has been in beta for a while.

Dropbox for business allows users to connect their account to a new business account, and you can access both from a device. It provides more control over corporate data, allowing for remote data wipes and the ability to track data access.

Dropbox also revealed the new “Project Harmony” today, which is a set of collaboration tools for users while using Microsoft Office. Project Harmony is built to work with any application, so more partnerships will come soon.

Dropbox releases Mailbox onto Google Play

mailbox

Not too long ago, Dropbox acquired Mailbox, an app designed for iOS devices. Of course, Dropbox is pretty friendly on all platforms, so it was pretty obvious that they were eventually going to look at bringing the app to Android at some point in the future. Today, that finally happened.

The app currently only works with Gmail (and iCloud, if you happen to have any iOS devices) but it arguably manages Gmail better than Google’s own client. The interface is extremely clean and flat, and uses swiping gestures to manage emails. Swipe to the right and you’ll either mark a message as read or delete it, and swiping it left either saves the email for later or archives it. This intuitive swiping makes the app extremely fast and fluid to use, and helps speed up inbox management . » Read the rest

Dropbox announces photo gallery, Carousel, for Android

carousel-dropboxDropbox is keeping us busy today – not only did they release Mailbox for Android, but they’ve also unveiled a new photo gallery for devices called Carousel. With Carousel, Dropbox wants to provide users with a gallery “for all the photos and videos from your life,” combining your photos in the cloud and the photos taken on your device. Dropbox’s big selling point is not having to worry about the storage space on your device, since photos will be stored in Dropbox’s cloud.

In addition, Carousel will have a messaging system, allowing you to have private conversations to “relive entire events with friends and family” much faster than text messaging. The app is already available in the Play Store, via the link past the break.

Dropbox has been updated with a brand new application icon and some user interface tweaks. Aside from aesthetic changes, Dropbox has added the option to set-up a Dropbox account directly from your smartphone with its camera. To be more exact, you can use a QR code to install Dropbox on a computer without having to sign in. The QR code will link your account from the device and transfer that information over to the computer when installing the desktop program.

Dropbox will add multiple account support to its app in April

According to some information given to Dropbox for Business customers, Dropbox has a press event planned on April 9th to unveil a new feature that will let users switch back and forth between multiple accounts in the Dropbox application. This will be extremely helpful for customers that like to manage both business and personal accounts from one device.

This sounds like it’s going to be a nice feature to add to an already solid platform offered by Dropbox, but there’s still some mystery about whether or not Dropbox will drop their cloud storage rates to compete with Google’s outrageous price drops. Dropbox charges $49.99 per month for 500 GB of storage, while Google Drive offers twice as much space for a fifth of the price currently.Moving forward, that extreme price disparity is going to overshadow any new features Dropbox introduces.

Dropbox has issued an update to their app for Android users that fixes a couple small issues creating big problems for some users. First, when Android 4.4.2 was released, it created a problem for Dropbox users trying to upload images taken with their camera. The other issue that the Dropbox development team addressed involved uploads from the gallery. Dropbox was uploading all files located in a user’s gallery folder, even if they were not photos. The new feature included in this latest Dropbox update lets users specify only photo images are to be uploaded.

Dropbox has updated its Android application today to add in a much-wanted feature; folder sharing on mobile devices.

They’ve also added the ability to upgrade to Dropbox Pro through Google Play instead of just the web.

It’s not a major update, but improvements are always welcome. You can find the download link below.

The company quickly learned, however, that people want to access their personal files while at work, but IT admins still want to keep personal and professional files separate. In response, Dropbox announced today that you can now connect your personal Dropbox account to your Business account for easier access.

The new feature will allow you to view all of your files, separated into two business and personal folders, without having to switch accounts.This feature is rolling out to Dropbox for Business customers this month, so be on the lookout for it.
