We’re always looking for new ways to make Dropbox work better with the tools you use every day. For many of you, Gmail is one of those tools, helping you share information and stay connected. That’s why we recently built an extension for your Chrome browser that lets you attach Dropbox files right from your Gmail account. Today, we have a new version with improvements based on feedback from early users.
We know the world doesn’t stop just because you’re away from your computer. You still need to be able to quickly find and work on your most important files — whether it’s pulling up a travel itinerary, jotting down notes or ideas, or responding to a coworker who asks a question about one of your projects. In many situations, waiting until you’re back at your desk just isn’t an option. That’s why we’re excited about our latest iOS app update, rolling out today. We’ve added some new functionality that lets you quickly open up the files you were most recently working on, ask others for feedback, and create new files — all on your iPad or iPhone.
If you work with a lot of digital video, you’ve probably realized that it can be a bit of a pain to share those files with others. Maybe you’re a professional videographer who’s been using portable hard drives to get footage to your editor or clients. Or perhaps you use your smartphone to take short videos for your blog, and you’ve been emailing yourself the files. Either way, Dropbox Pro can help you streamline your processes.
Whether you’re collaborating on a business proposal or putting together a vacation itinerary, working with multiple people can be difficult. It can involve lots of back and forth conversations, scattered across email threads and chat windows. And in the process, feedback can get lost and it can take ages to get everyone on the same page. Today we’re simplifying that process. With comments, you can now have conversations around Dropbox files, both on the files you own and the files people share with you.
La Ville Lumière, here we come. We’re happy to announce the opening of our Paris office, which joins Dublin and London as our third European location. Our new Paris team, led by Philippe Plichon, is putting down roots in the city’s thriving tech neighborhood, “Silicon Sentier.”
In 2013, Jimmy Goldblum and Adam Weber were nearly finished editing a documentary they’d spent the last two years filming in India. A few months before the documentary was due to premiere at film festivals across the country, the story behind the film took such a pivotal turn that the directors had no choice — they had to go back to India and keep shooting. The finished product was a documentary that had been reworked so quickly, that it ended up having a huge impact on the very story it was telling.
