Dropbox just announced a new, redesigned version of its mobile app for the Android mobile operating system. This overhauled version now promises a more efficient and easy way for users to share their files and upload their folders. The redesigned Dropbox mobile app for Android is scheduled to deploy within the next couple of days.
The overall aim of the redesign of the Dropbox app for Android was to achieve a more seamless user experience, especially with regards to how users interact with the app's user interface. Also, the new version features an enhanced search function, which is now situated on the top area of the user interface. Taken as a whole, these adjustments and new features should provide for a more convenient way of sharing and managing files and folders.
The introduction of a redesigned version of its Android app also marks a significant stepping stone for Dropbox. Right now, the company is still in the midst of finding the right look and feel for its mobile apps, after having been a presence on desktop computers for several years now. Obviously, the mobile world requires different user interaction dynamics compared to desktop interfaces, and Dropbox will have to figure out which suits it best.
Of course, much will depend on user behavior, particularly with regards to how exactly they share files, especially photos. In the newest version of Dropbox, users can take photos directly from the folder they are browsing at the moment with a new button located on the bottom area of the screen. The redesigned Dropbox app now also relocated sharing controls, as well as processes (e.g. transferring files), and then favoriting all of them to a single area in the UI.
And Android fans may be delighted that Dropbox takes its redesign cues from the overall environment of the latest version of the Android mobile operating system. This means that Dropbox now acts and feels more like Google's own new Android apps in terms of functionality.
Dropbox has certainly been busy tweaking things here and there. Apart from the latest redesign of its Android app, the company also introduced a new tool that allows users to request files from other people who are not users of Dropbox. By any measure, it is a wise move, and will definitely introduce Dropbox to other people, especially those who are reluctant to use it, but may reconsider because their friends are into it.
