Dropbox gives every user 2GB of free space, but with all of us able to get up to 16GB through referrals and additional space just by activating certain devices, enticing users to go pro can be easier said than done. So the company has been adding in improvements to make the process largely painless. The last update made it possible to hand over your money by taking a snapshot of your credit card that could be used to auto-fill the requisite information. Now users can update more easily via an in-app purchase.

But what's more interesting about this update is the arrival of the app's long-awaited shared folder management features. Now we can create shared folders and invite people to use them from within the app itself, rather than having to merely settle for sending links.

This is a much-needed update, especially considering that one of Dropbox's strengths is how easy it makes it for teams to collaborate from different machines and time zones. Now the mobile app is one-step closer to matching the functionality available on PCs and the web.

What's new:

  • Create new shared folders and invite contacts to existing shared folders
  • Manage sharing settings
  • Upgrade to Pro through Google Play
