Minimal Text Editor Monospace From Underwood Apps Is Now Available In Public Beta On The Play Store

Underwood Apps, developer of the widely-praised Today Calendar, has a new entry on the Play Store. You probably won't be interested if you're looking for another replacement to a core Google app, but writers, developers, and editors would do well to check it out. Say hello to Monospace, a super-simple text editor that's making its Play Store debut in beta form. It's a free download for Android 4.0.3 or later.

Monospace is another entry in the minimal group of text editors - it doesn't support any of the more complex formatting you might be familiar with from a word processor, like templates or spell checking.

Dropbox Adds Collaborative Comments In Version 3.0.1, But Nobody Cares Because Now It Does Native GIF Viewing

In the latest version, Dropbox adds a much-needed favor for collaborative teams and users who rely on effective communication across updated files. But who gives a crap about that, because the app has also added GIF support.

Version 3.0.1 lets you view animated GIFs right in Dropbox without popping out to an external app. That should be useful for... OK, it's not particularly useful for anything, except that one time that you need to instantly distinguish between the original and reverse of that one dog image when you attend a GIF party via your tablet.

[APK Download] Dropbox Gets A Material Design Makeover And Gesture Folder Navigation In Version 2.6

Apps with tens of millions of users tend to either spend a lot of time and effort conforming to Android's visual standards... or spend none at all, considering their own cross-platform UI more important. Dropbox has tended to fall into the former category, but it's taken them a while to get on board with the Material Design standards introduced with Android 5.0. That changes today: version 2.6.0.2 adds a new UI that follows the Material Design playbook.

Microsoft Office Online Now Lets You Open, Edit, And Save Documents In Dropbox

Despite the existence of OneDrive, Microsoft and Dropbox are friends now. The Redmond-based company knows where you're saving your stuff, and it wants you using its office suite regardless. It's business.

So Microsoft and Dropbox have announced the next level of integration for their mutual products. Office Online will now let you open a file straight from Dropbox, edit it, and save it back. This is the kind of seamless experience that came to Android towards the end of last year.

Mailbox Goes Material Design In Version 2.0

Dropbox's Mailbox email client has always been relatively simple and stylish, but the latest version of the app pushes it further in both directions. For the big 2.0, Mailbox is going material.

The side navigation menu slides out over the action bar, and a floating action button hovers in the bottom right corner. Excess lines have been stripped from various areas of the app, leaving more whitespace and, well, lots of white in general.

Dropbox App Adds A Built-In PDF Viewer And In-Document Searching For PDF, Word, And PowerPoint Files

Dropbox is one of those essential apps that goes on any new Android device I buy or test almost immediately. Today it's getting an update adding a couple of features that will make it considerably more useful for reading and searching documents. First of all, the Dropbox app for Android can now view Adobe PDF files natively. Since it seems like we're doomed to use this proprietary format until the heat death of the universe (or at least until Adobe starts charging by the page), it's a handy extra.

Now this functionality is coming over to the Android app. When you open a shared link on your mobile device while running the latest version of Dropbox, you will be able to open the file or folder directly inside the app, giving you a full view of documents and photos.

Dropbox's Mailbox App Updated With Tablet Support (Sort Of) In Version 1.6

The Mailbox email app belongs to Dropbox, but it began life as an independent app on iOS. That being the case, it's not really surprising that when Dropbox bought the developers and made the app multi-platform, it wasn't initially optimized for Android tablets. It was a little odd when that status quo continued for the better part of a year. With version 1.6.2, that considerable oversight has been addressed.
