These days, work doesn’t just happen at your desk. From brainstorming over video chat to reviewing reports on the train, teamwork can take many forms. That’s why your tools need to be as flexible as the way you work. Today, we’re announcing new updates to our iOS and Android mobile apps that help you stay productive on the go—no matter where you are or how you work.
We built Dropbox Paper to help fast-moving teams create collaborative docs and share important information. It’s a big part of how we’re reimagining the way people work together. We originally launched Paper to a limited number of teams in private beta. And now we’re excited to open up the beta so anyone can sign up—without the waitlist. Plus, we have new Paper mobile apps for iOS and Android that you can use for on-the-go access.
Great news for Android users working on the go: you can now work on PDFs stored in Dropbox in the Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile app.
If you’re anything like us, you have hundreds or thousands of files stored in Dropbox. But not all of that content is relevant to you at any given moment; your 2013 tax return, for example, isn’t as top of mind as the presentation you’re working on for tomorrow’s meeting. That’s why we created Recents, a shortcut to those top-of-mind, need-it-now files. Your Recents page shows you all the files you’ve worked with recently, like docs you’ve added, edited, or moved. Launched first to iOS devices, Recents is rolling out today to dropbox.com, and will be coming soon to our Android app.
Now, you can drag and drop URLs into your Dropbox — on the web and on your desktop — and open them on any of your devices. This means you can take your bookmarks anywhere, instead of having them confined to a certain browser on a certain computer. But it also means you can organize all your information, no matter the format, into Dropbox folders — so your information is in one central place.
Today, we’re taking the wraps off our newly redesigned Dropbox for Android app. We’ve heard your feedback, and this new version has been built to make Dropbox on Android better, faster, and more usable.
