Dropbox for iOS Gets Updated, Makes Browsing Photos Easier

Dropbox for iOS was updated on Friday, with a more refined experience aimed at making viewing and sharing photos easier. Along with some subtler changes, a new Photos tab has been added to the app, allowing users to initiate a scrollable timeline of images uploaded to the service. This will sound familiar to Android users.

In addition to the Photos tab, the app has been shuffled visually to make browsing easier. Automatic camera uploads are highlighted, with a link to that particular section that’s always shows new images that are uploaded.

If you perform Dropbox backups on the go, or you want to immediately share a photo uploaded to the services (or via social networks/email), everything is laid out more elegantly to encourage more mobile use. Dropbox merely says it has implemented a “shiny new design,” so you’ll have to dig through to see what’s beneath the cloud service’s skin.
