Last month, we unveiled a new partnership with Adobe to make working with PDFs in Dropbox simpler and faster. Today, we’re excited to share that our iOS integration with Adobe is live and ready for you to use — so you can easily edit PDFs stored in Dropbox, anytime and anywhere.
With more than 18 billion PDF files stored in Dropbox, they’re critical to how many of our users get work done. In fact, they’re one of the most common business file types in Dropbox. So we asked ourselves, how can we make working with PDFs even easier in Dropbox? That’s the idea behind our new partnership with Adobe. We’re releasing the first phase of the partnership today, with even deeper mobile integrations to follow in the coming months.
iOS 9 is here, and iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are on the way, so we’re giving the Dropbox app for iOS an update. Starting today, you’ll see a handful of improvements that make getting to your files simpler, quicker, and even a little more fun.
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.
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.
Starting today, when you click on a Dropbox shared link from your mobile device, you can open the file or folder right in the Dropbox app — which means you get rich previews for documents and photos and an easy way to save the file or folder to your Dropbox account.
