Dropbox Releases Public Beta, Features UI Improvements and More

Dropbox Beta

Last night, the Dropbox team released a public beta of their new 2.2.2.8 build for users to provide feedback on. Inside the beta are some UI improvements, a multiple photo delete feature, and a “favorites” feature. If you’re big into Dropbox, it’s pretty smooth. Check out the full changelog and download the beta below.

Christmas is coming early in Android land! The Dropbox elves have been in the workshop all week preparing this exciting preview release for you.

What’s new:

  • Effortlessly share several of your beautiful photos at once,
  • Organize your favorite photos into albums. You can share them too!
  • Delete multiple photos at once
  • UI improvements and updates throughout
  • Lots of other little tweaks and bug fixes

Additionally, we’re trying something new with this forum build. We’ve added a feature to opt in for future early releases directly through the app. For forum build downloads this feature is on by default so you can easily get updates to the forum build and the final release a bit early. You can also toggle this option on and off in the app’s settings.

Help make this the best Android release yet by sharing your feedback with us. So create some albums and share some photos, and let us know what you think!

Cheers Brad and Jeremy!

    Jason, with Dropbox’s recent aqui-hire of the Audiogalaxy team, it probably won’t be long before their current focus shifts to music files, so getting all this photo-centric stuff out there now makes a little sense.

    it looks the same to me…and how do I batch delete??

    at $20 for their expansion for more storage for 100gb, it’s way over priced, I get 200 gb at $10 from Drive

    Still gotta use DropSync to make it useful though :( I wonder if they’ll ever truly port the desktop version’s two-way sync with multiple folders, etc.
