Dropbox for iOS Brings Desktop Setup with iPhone Camera and More


Dropbox has updated their iOS app with new features today:

  • Swipe to the right to ‘favourite’ any file (looks like Mailbox gestures are making their way into the app)
  • Set up Dropbox with your iPhone camera
  • Choose where to save files to from recently used locations
  • New language support (Danish, Dutch, Swedish, and Thai) and accessibility improvements
