We’ve updated our iOS app with a few new features to help you get more done on-the-go! Here’s what’s new:
- We’ve added 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.
- To rename files straight from Dropbox, 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.
At Dropbox, we’re always looking to make your life easier — even if it’s just to save you a few seconds. Here are three new time-savers from our latest iOS release:
Reorder your Favorites
By swiping to the right you can favorite a file so you can view it anytime, even when you’re offline. And starting today, you can organize files in your Favorites tab any way you’d like just by holding and dragging. This means your favorite favorites — like the World Cup schedule — will always be right where you need them.
There’s a new Dropbox for iPhone and iPad out today, featuring a refreshed design inspired by Apple’s iOS 7! We considered every aspect of the app, took the time to make sure we did a thorough job, and simplified a whole bunch of stuff.
The new Dropbox app is a bit like a new beginning for Dropbox on iOS. While many things will feel familiar, we hope you’ll notice the small tweaks that make a pretty big difference. And maybe best of all, it sets the stage for some exciting things to come.

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,
I’m not the kind of guy that likes prefacing an announcement with a wall of text, so let’s cut to the chase:
Big announcement: the iPhone app is now available for 3.0! Go get it
Other stuff: We initially opted for 3.1 because API methods related to saving videos were not available on 3.0. This meant that videos taken within the app would be permanently lost in the event of a flaky/slow internet connection. This happened to us enough in testing that we felt it wasn’t a risk we wanted to expose to our users.
