A couple of weeks ago, Dropbox announced that it had partnered with Microsoft to include Office integration within its web and mobile apps. The move is a big deal for Office users, as they can access and edit Office documents from within Dropbox, a cloud storage solution that can be reached from just about anywhere and on any platform. In a blog post today, Dropbox announced that the new functionality is now available on Android.
To get started, they remind you to update to the newest version of Dropbox, then open any Office document, spreadsheet or presentation from within Dropbox. You should see an “edit” icon that will let you start editing. Once you are finished editing, your document will then save automatically back to Dropbox.
Give it a shot and let us know how it goes. (more…)

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…)
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.
Before the update, users were unable to bulk delete images in the app’s gallery, which must have been quite the tiring process if you had multiple items to delete. Now, much like all regular gallery applications, users can select numerous pictures/videos, and delete all with a single press. (more…)
A new update is available for Dropbox users, one which brings additional functionality for file-storing professionals who are taking advantage of cloud storage. In the update, users can now preview documents before downloading/sharing, which will save you from pointless downloads of files which you may not need to store on your device. (more…)
