CloudSix for Dropbox updated with PNG and GIF viewer, design changes

CloudSix for Dropbox

A few days ago Rudy Huyn released his new Dropbox client for Windows Phone – CloudSix for Dropbox. It’s the first of many cloud storage apps that Rudy will be working on in the near future. Not only does it bring all the functionality of Dropbox to Windows Phone, but it also offers up new opportunities for developers to add cloud storage to their apps with minimal effort. CloudSix for Dropbox has also just picked up its first update. Let’s see what’s new.

Head to the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see CloudSix for Dropbox at version 1.1. Here’s what’s new in this update:

  • PNG and GIF viewer
  • Customize design of the app: change side-panels color, change live tiles design

Not a big update, but viewing PNGs and GIFs in CloudSix will make a lot of you happy. Don’t like the design of the app? You can now change the color of the side-panels and use transparent Live tiles. If you select to make your Live tile for CloudSix transparant it will instead use the system theme color you've selected. 

CloudSix for Dropbox is a free app and available in the Windows Phone Store. You can remove ads through an in-app purchase.

Even though I'm using one drive these days, its good to have access to dropbox files from 2010 haha. Can't wait to a similar client for one drive is released

It's sufficient, but could be better. If Rudy does a better job than MS, then that'll be telling.

I like onedrive but I need it to handle music better, or just media files altogether. It would be nice if it had a built in music player. 

Sadly I just uninstalled it. My HTC 8X had always been rock solid. Perhaps it's a coincidence, but my phone has randomly rebooted 2 or 3 times per day since I installed it.

My 8X works perfectly fine, and I have 300 MB of space left lol, so my phone tends to lag a bit more at times. Maybe just reinstall?

All the functionality of Dropbox ??
Not really. That would be, among others, ability to sync any/all remote folders to WP for local use. Also, uploading videos is not available. :-/

This app has problems. On my 920, this app crashes like it should be on android.  Not only that, its limited to view and save You can't delete anything either. The preview images are waaay too small to see and it crashes every 5th image. Rudy, when you get a minute...this app isn't ready.

I have had great luck with Cloud 6 and am grateful for it.  The one thing I can't figure out how to do is to pin Cloud 6 files to the Windows Phone desktop.  I can pin folders.  Any suggestions?
