Heads up, Dropbox users on iOS! Youâ€™ve got an update!
The Dropbox iOS app is now on version 1.5, and apart from the customary bug fixes, this one comes with a special treat â€“ auto photo/video upload.
Auto photo uploading isnâ€™t exactly new on Dropbox, but it is a first for iOS users. This feature has been available on Android for quite sometime now, and also trickled down to their desktop client just recently too.
I know what youâ€™re thinking – why the heck use auto photo uploading if itâ€™ll just eat up all your available Dropbox storage?
For one, itâ€™s to serve as a back-up for all your photos, and second, it’ll also allow you to easily access all your iPhone/iPad-taken snapshots from your PC/Mac (with Dropbox installed, of course) without having to hook up your iOS device to your desktop/laptop. And donâ€™t worry aboutÂ that bit about the photos eating away at your free storage. Dropbox will be rewarding you generously with up to 3GB of free additional storage for using auto photo upload. And in case the free 3GB of additional Dropbox storage still isnâ€™t enough for both your photos and files, just delete the photos. That way, you earn 3GB of storage without breaking a sweat (or annoying your friends with Dropbox invites).
So update your Dropbox iOS app to 1.5 now!
For those who still havenâ€™t gotten Dropbox, you can download it from the App Store. Itâ€™s free and is a universal app (read: optimized for both iPhone and iPad use) too.
