At some point we all have used the services of Dropbox. That’s because Dropbox is one of the most popular cloud storage services out there and this week it has released a new update for their iOS app.
From now on, users of Dropbox will have the possibility of automatically uploading photos and videos they have shot using their iOS cameras. The files go directly to the “Camera Uploads” folder users will find in their Dropbox account. Also the interface for viewing pictures and videos has been greatly improved and is now more intuitive and easier to access. Dropbox calls it “Gallery view”.
By giving the green light to Dropbox to automatically upload media users will earn an extra 3GB free extra storage in 500MB increments. This is similar to what we have seen with the Android version of Dropbox several months ago. Other new features include the ability to delete multiple files at the same time and to upload files of any size!
Giving users the ability to upload media of any kind and size represents a big benefit especially since the new iPhone 4S produces large high-definition video files which are not easily transferable. Dropbox users can head on the Apple Store and download themselves the update version 1.5.
The update comes free of cost as the app itself. Dropbox offers a free 2GB account, but if users crave more space, then they can upgrade their account from 18GB to 50GB for a price that starts off with $9.99.
