Dropbox Finally Adds Support for SD Card File Transfers

Despite Google’s obstinacy on the matter, a whopping 63% of our readers made it clear in our July poll that they considered SD card support an important factor in deciding on smartphones. That’s a pretty large number of people, one which Dropbox is apparently happy to accommodate. The company announced today an update that will bring an option to export files straight to SD cards.

Dropbox Simplifies Offerings, Reduces Pricing, Introduces New Features

As anyone who has paid for Dropbox storage can tell you, the cloud company has not exactly been competitive when it comes to pricing, at least comparatively. With the abnegation of an incumbent, Dropbox has left its expensive tiers unchanged in recent months, while competitors like Google and Amazon have drastically undercut them.

Historically, the service has defended its pricing, arguing the included features more than justify the added cost. If this morning’s announcement is any indication, though, the 300 million+ user service is starting to feel the heat. (more…)

Dropbox Pushes Update to Carousel, Brings Bulk Delete and Android L Compatibility

A much-needed update has been pushed out to Dropbox’s Carousel application, one which brings a toggle for the auto backup feature, a bulk delete settings, and Android L compatibility.

Mailbox Coming to Android for Free Today (Updated: It’s Live!)

Dropbox announced this morning that it is finally bringing Mailbox, an incredibly popular iOS mail application, to Android and the desktop (Mac only). The apps should both arrive today, though the links on Mailbox’s website are not yet live.

Mailbox lets you quickly swipe items away that you’d like to trash, archive, or get back to at a later date. For items that you have snoozed, you’ll see them automatically appear back in your inbox when the time is right, so that you can focus “on what’s important now.” The goal is to hit “Inbox Zero,” an inbox that hasn’t nothing left in it.  (more…)

Dennis Woodside Departs Motorola to Take Over as COO of Dropbox

According to the Wall Street Journal, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside is departing the company to become the COO of Dropbox. I wouldn’t exactly say that you should be surprised that Woodside is departing the smartphone manufacturer after Google sent it packing to Lenovo, but the move to Dropbox is sort of. Then again, going from a mega-company like Google to somewhat of a start-up might be the hot new trend for executives.  (more…)
