Dropbox for iOS today obtained a significant upgrade that included a feature we have all been crying out for since the application initially located its means into the App Store: the ability to save any file straight to Dropbox without needing to open up the application.
The attribute, component of the brand-new Dropbox 3.7 update that has just shown up on the App Store, includes a new activity extension for iOS 8 users which gives them the power to save any type of file to Dropbox outward any type of application that supports expansions. This function alone makes Dropbox infinitely better on iPhones and iPads and lastly gives the app a feature that has actually been part of the Android version for a long, very long time.
The use instances are countless. You can now upload graphics directly from the Photos app, or content documents from your favorite text editor and they’ll go directly right into Dropbox without ever needing to open up the app itself. If that doesn’t sound incredible to you, well, you’re most likely not utilizing Dropbox enough!
When you have actually set up the update you may need to do a little setup job to get this thing functioning though. Just what we would certainly suggest doing is opening the Photos app, selecting a photo then touching the Share button. If you scroll the bottom row of symbols completely along to the right you’ll see a ‘‘ even more’ switch. It looks like three periods in a row. Tap that and you’ll next off see a list of all the offered extensions, among which will certainly be Dropbox. Enable it, and you’re done.
Now, whenever you utilize the Share option you’ll see the option to share to Dropbox. From here you could decide where to save it to also. That’s really a comfort, since till we attempted it ourselves we were a little worried that the extension might simply dump everything in your root Dropbox folder.
The Dropbox 3.7 upgrade is one that everyone must download right away. It’s free, so there’s no factor not to!
