Building new products is about learning as much as it’s about making. It’s also about tough choices. Over the past few months, we’ve increased our team’s focus on collaboration and simplifying the way people work together. In light of that, we’ve made the difficult decision to shut down Carousel and Mailbox.
Almost everyone daydreams about building the perfect home someday, but what does it take to actually do it? For Marco and Irene, a married couple living in Italy, it took patience, persistence, and a lot of paperwork to make their dream home a reality. But with a little help from Dropbox, they were able to stay organized along the way.
It’s hard to believe how much we accomplished together this year. Thanks for being with us along the way.
We’ve got friends and users all around the world — in fact, over 70% of you are outside the US. That’s just one of the reasons we think it’s so important to support Dropbox in as many languages as possible — to make it even easier for Dropbox users to share all the important files in their lives with all the important people in their lives. Today, we’re excited to share that both Dropbox and Carousel are available in 4 more languages: Danish, Dutch, Swedish, and Thai.
Once upon a time, photos were something you held. You kept them safe in an album or shoebox, and it was easy to relive those moments with friends and family. Today, new apps and devices have made it easier than ever to take photos, but there’s no longer a single home for all your life’s memories. We’d like you to meet Carousel: a gallery for all the photos and videos from your life.
I think 2013’s been a pretty great year. We refreshed just about everything we could, and started crafting a home for your photos. For people using Dropbox at work, we designed a brand new Dropbox for Business that gives both users and companies what they’ve been asking for. Meanwhile, we introduced the Dropbox Platform to developers worldwide, and brought Dropbox to seven new languages.
This stuff makes me happy,
