Dropbox iOS App Updated to Finally Allow Files and Folders Renaming

Dropbox has finally updated its iOS app to allow renaming of files and folders, while introducing a couple of other new features. The updated app also features an easy-access more actions button next to the sharing icon in the upper right-hand corner, that leads to a set of file options so you can quickly do things like rename or move a file.

As shown in the above illustration, renaming files and folders in the new Dropbox iOS app is pretty straight forward. To rename files, simply choose Rename from the more actions button as you’re previewing. Rename folders by swiping to the right from the file list view and tapping the rename icon.

“Our new toolbar disappears (and reappears) as you need it, leaving valuable screen space for a full view into your photos or important files. Simply tap once anywhere within your photo or file to toggle between the toolbar and full screen. When viewing Microsoft Office files, you’ll see an edit icon in the toolbar to open and edit your docs right from the Office apps.”
