Dropbox is a popular clouding service, and, therefore, it is being used by a lot of owners of smartphones, too. As most of you know there are several Dropbox clients for different mobile platforms.
Today we have targeted the Dropbox client for Android. That’s because there were a lot of rumors on specialized forums regarding the update of the Android Dropbox apk v188.8.131.52. And now it has just arrived.Let’s see what novelties it brings.
The look of the new Android Dropbox application has the theme of Ice Cream Sandwich. It also comes with a lot of improvements and new features for Android devices: smartphones and tablets. From the improvements list we have to mention the fact that, using this new version will quickly connect you to your Dropbox account, will let you make batch uploads to your cloud and will enable also a fast access to your favorite content when you are offline. While using this improved Android Dropbox client you will notice that the interface is simplified and the work with your files in the cloud is much more easy: the commands for move, copy, delete and rename files are now optimized.
As I mentioned in the above mentioned paragraph the user interface for this new Android Dropbox Client has the look boroughed from the latest version of the mobile platform: 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Therefore you will find the tab navigation in this application, too.
I found being very useful the feature that allows us to run batch uploads in our Dropbox cloud account. It is obvious what are the advantages and how much does this feature speeds up the upload process to our clouds, therefore I will not get into details here. Another optimized function of the Android Dropbox apk v 184.108.40.206 is the renaming files/ folders feature, as well as the sharing one. I am saying this because I have noticed during the browsing that I took through my stuff in Dropbox cloud that my files icons contain also a shortcut in their upper left corner. By tapping on this shortcut you will be provided with a menu in which you can select whatever you want to do with that file, as described previously. Of course there some other options provided in this menu, not necessarily usable in the daily basis work, but very useful sometimes: you can add a file to favorites, save it in the internal memory of your smartphone or in the SD card etc.
The Android Dropbox application will provide you with a gallery which contains all the videos and photos saved in the memory of your device. While combining this feature with the batch (bulk) upload capability of this application you will find the managing files from cloud as a very simple process.
The new application does not just provide new and useful functions. It also comes with a lot of bugs and errors fixed.
For the moment you will not find the new Android Dropbox client (updated apk v220.127.116.11) in Android Market. However, we will provide you with a link to a forum in which you can read all the details regarding the new improvements and fixed bugs (change log) and, also, you will be able to download the preview build for the latest Dropbox client.
