Official Dropbox app arrives on modern Windows devices
Universal app available for smartphones, tablets and PCs
Along all exciting things around Windows 10 from yesterday’s event, we heard some good news on the current platforms with a brand new app available in both stores. The popular cloud service Dropbox has finally delivered an original client for modern Windows devices, offering 2 Gigs of free storage for documents, photos and other files.
Dropbox for Windows is a universal app, which means you can have the same code, design and features, running on tablets & PCs (via Windows 8.1 Store) and on smartphones (via Windows Phone Store).
This is the first major announcement for Windows users after the official partnership between Microsoft and Dropbox started in late 2014. The first version of Dropbox doesn’t include all functionalities promised in 2014, but we do have auto upload and offline files, plus a neat UI. Another nice feature seen in the first release is support for both personal and business accounts.
Microsoft will probably integrate Dropbox service with the new touch-friendly Office coming with Windows 10, so users can access, edit, and save files to the Cloud directly from Office apps, OneDrive or Dropbox.
