After years of waiting, Windows Phone owners will soon be able to get a native Dropbox app. The cloud storage company has entered into a new partnership with Microsoft that will include an agreement to create an official Dropbox app for Windows Phone. The app will be released "in the coming months."
While Dropbox released an app for Windows 8 nearly two years ago, the addition of an app for Windows Phone to their lineup will be a huge boost for owners of those smartphones who have had to work with some admittedly excellent but still third-party apps such as CloudSix.
In addition to Dropbox support for Windows Phones and tablets, Dropbox integration is also coming to the Microsoft Office suite. The first integration will be for iOS and Android users, alas, and is expected in the next few weeks, while Office Online will see Dropbox integration in the first half of 2015.
While it's always good to see more apps and services supporting Windows Phone, is this too little too late for Dropbox, or a welcome addition to the party?
