Dropbox, arguably one of the best file storage/sharing services around, recently released the new beta version of their app for Android, making it even easier to access files on the go that may otherwise be spread across several devices.

Besides bug fixes, the new beta includes the ability to store "favorite" files for quick offline viewing, bulk upload for multiple photos and videos, renaming of files and folders, upload from and export to local storage, and last but not least, a hugely improved UI which includes a more appealing gallery view and quick, one-tap access to file options. With these improvements in tow, Dropbox's app for Android is looking great, and, if you're a Dropbox user, there's no reason not to grab the new beta from the Dropbox forum and give it a try.

    This and the beta of Poweramp are using a honeycomb like UI. Interesting....

    Hi Liam you write cool articles. Btw check out Binfer. Binfer is a great option to send large files directly from person to person, without uploading to a server. You can send hundreds of files of any size with a simple drag and drop. Binfer will manage the transfers with auto resumes, encryption, notifications etc. http://www.binfer.com

    Thanks for sharing. I've been using DropBox forever now and it's been one of my favorite apps for sharing files between my phone and my computer. Looking forward to the new improvements

    And you didn't mention the most important change, it will try to keep specified (favourite) files in sync, up until now this has been its biggest failing.

    Useless... Estrong file manager now has Dropbox support so why should I have an app specifically just to use Dropbox? They should spent their time in a more useful manner imho.
