Our most productive hours aren’t always from 9 to 5, or even when we’re at the office. That’s why our time in transit has become an important part of our workday. But what happens when you’re traveling through places without Wi-Fi or cell reception? Those interruptions can slow down your workflow, but they don’t have to bring it to a complete standstill. Here’s how Paper’s new offline mode feature can help you get work done anytime, anywhere.
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.
Do trains that go through tunnels with no cell signal give you separation anxiety? Ever been halfway through a document review when you had to leave the office to catch a bus with no Wi-Fi? When you count on your travel time to be a productive part of your workday, being offline at the wrong time can be a frustrating interruption. So today, we’re introducing Dropbox mobile offline folders, a new premium feature that lets you keep working on your phone no matter where you are.
Update (November 2, 2016): Today we’re releasing two new features to help iPad users get more done. The latest version of our app adds support for Split View multitasking and brings our popular doc scanning feature, previously only on iPhone, to iPad. You can try out both features in the updated Dropbox app, available today in the App Store.
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.
Having anytime access to your photos and videos is great, but reliving those memories with your friends and family is what brings them to life. And that’s something we want to be as simple as possible. So today, we’re launching a new feature that makes it easier to share photos, videos, and other files in Facebook Messenger.
