It seems that Dropbox seriously decided to change the image it has in public. After all the security breaches that have been quite regular in the history of this service, Dropbox was largely seen as insecure. Now they dedicated to improving their service and the way people see it. As cloud storage apps grow more widely used Dropbox introduces more updates.
Recently, after some of the user accounts were compromised Dropbox added two-step verification as an additional security layer to the service. Now they announce updates for iOS that are intended to further improve user experience with this app.
New version 1.5.5 includes additional sharing options. Dropbox added integration with Twitter and Facebook which enables users to share content across the two biggest social networks. So far sharing was limited to ‘email’ and ‘copy to clipboard’ options only but with the update users will be able to share content on timeline.
In addition to this, the new version will have AirPrint support. As many iOS users already know, AirPrint is Apple’s system for wireless printing from iOS devices, so now it will be possible to print a document directly from a Dropbox account with any printer that supports wireless printing.
Previous Dropbox iOS update brought an option to automatically upload photos via Wi-Fi and cellular networks and earlier this month they announced the integration with recently launched Samsung Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Note II.
The update is available in the Apple App Store.
