Dropbox now acts as a sharing service for users running iOS 8, meaning any document that can be shared by the operating system’s built-in functionality can be uploaded directly to dropbox. This removes the need for users to open the Dropbox app itself or save files to Dropbox from third-party apps specifically designed to do so.
After updating, Dropbox can be added to iOS’s sharing options by sharing a file — such as a snapshot in the Photos app — then tapping the “More” button and toggling “Save to Dropbox” to the on position. Rearranging the options within the “More” menu will change the order in which they appear on the share sheet.
Dropbox also promises bug fixes and improvements for moving and deleting files, printing and exporting, RTF previews, and password-protected files.
At press time, the Dropbox app was experiencing availability issues on the App Store. When it returns, version 3.7 will be available as a free, 60.9-megabyte download.
