If you use Dropbox on your Android device and either like to live on the edge or help the company test out the latest betas, you will want to check out this post on the Dropbox forums, announcing a new public beta v1.0.9.3 with some new translations, Honeycomb improvements, new Lock Code support for the security-conscious, and other fixes. Forum replies also indicated that some sort of a folder opening bug got fixed in the process, though I am not sure what exactly that bug was in the first place.

Check out the changelog, then proceed to the direct download link, and once you've tested everything out, head back to the Dropbox forums to post your feedback:

Release Notes

  • Internationalization (French, Spanish, German, Japanese)
  • Lock Code now protects your Dropbox from prying eyes.
  • Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet compatibility fixes
  • Improvements:
    • Better checking for file modifications before uploading
    • Improved character set support
    • Displays error message when SD card is full
    • Dropbox service no longer starts up on all network changes
    • Dropbox no longer lists itself as an app it can share data to
  • Removed permission to read phone state and identity, since it's no longer needed.

    I'm waffling between the official dropbox app and titanium media sync, but I'll keep both on for now.

    love dropbox! i checked dropbox on my motorola xoom and i didn't notice any significant changes on the surface. i wished the overhauled the UI for tablets. At least leave an active preview panel or active menu panel on the screen. anyway! love it
