A month ago, we asked for your stories of how you’ve been using Dropbox. And you guys never disappoint — we received thousands of stories from all over the world, and discovered all sorts of awesome uses we never could’ve imagined.
We want to share a few of our favorites:
Looking for something to warm you up this holiday season? Go make some hot chocolate!
In other news, we’ve updated the Dropbox experience for your iOS devices, so you can have even more holiday cheer with your new phones and tablets.
New photos experience
Now all of your photos are right at your fingertips with the brand new Photos tab. With just a tap, you’ll be able to scroll through a timeline of all the photos you’ve automatically uploaded (including the pocket-dialed ones too). And since Dropbox is a one stop shop for all your memories,
Hey Space Racers!
Over the last eight weeks, millions of students from over 6,000 schools (and 100 countries!) strapped on their space boots and hustled in the greatest race for space the world has ever seen (since the actual space race).

First off, we’re thankful for our first year at our shiny new SF office, and for all the new Dropboxers who’ve joined to help us build the dream (come join us!)
We’re also grateful for our happy developers finding clever new ways to make Dropbox sing.
As you make your way around the web, you’re bound to come across ‘attach’, ‘upload’ and ‘add file’ buttons pretty often. Right now, most of these only let you choose stuff from your computer, and you need to upload again if you make any changes. Lame.
Enter the Dropbox Chooser: a new way for developers to let you access the photos, docs and videos in your Dropbox from any web application, and keep them updated. We recently announced that you could share from Dropbox inside Facebook Groups, and with the Dropbox Chooser,
