Dropbox has been updated to version 2.1 on the Windows Phone Store. New in this release are improved user interfaces, bug fixes, added accessibility options and more. It's quite the update to follow the substantial release we covered last month.
Dropbox today has announced that its Windows Phone app is now a universal app, joining its Windows 8.1 counterpart on the Store. Even more, today's update to Windows Phone brings many new, highly requested features including multiple file select and the ability to upload more than just photos.
Dropbox has made collaborating on shared documents easier with the introduction of comments. While Dropbox for Business early access users have been able to comment on documents since late March, the company has now made this ability available to all users. Comments are available for any file stored in Dropbox.
Microsoft's web-based Office Online suite has added integration with Dropbox, letting you open and save documents by way of the cloud storage service. This is an expansion of existing integrations with third-party services such as Box and Citrix that began earlier this year.
Dropbox is currently rolling out a new update for its web browser users that promises a better preview experience for stored documents. Dropbox says that the improvements will allow documents to load faster and look better while previewed on a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Dropbox has released an update for the official Windows Phone app, bumping the offering to version 1.2. This latest release improves the way folders are viewed in list view and adds Norwegian language support.
Dropbox for Windows Phone scored an update today, bringing the app up to version 1.1. This update brings the ability to create and manage shared folders from within the app, as well as a number of bug fixes.
Microsoft is currently running a promotion that sees the company giving out yet another 100GB of free OneDrive storage for 1 year — this time to anyone with a Dropbox account. Unfortunately, this one is limited to current Dropbox users in the U.S. for right now.
Dropbox has updated its Windows Phone app again with a big, and much requested, feature. The new 184.108.40.206 version now includes a "system camera auto-upload option" which means that any photos you take on your device can be automatically uploaded to your Dropbox cloud account.
After making its debut on the platform this month, Dropbox has received a new update that allows you to upload photos from the Pictures Hub directly to the cloud sharing service. The Windows 8.1 version of the app also picked up an update, and now has an improved file picker along with a better PDF reader.
The long awaited Dropbox app for Windows Phone launched late on Wednesday, but the app has already received its first update that adds Spanish to its languages. Also, famed Windows Phone app creator Rudy Huyn has revealed he is the developer of the newly universal Dropbox app for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1.
There's some good news for cloud storage users. After a long, long wait, Dropbox has launched an official app for Windows Phone today. Dropbox originally announced that they were working on the app back in November as part of a new partnership with Microsoft.
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."
Earlier today, a thread surfaced on Reddit offering up 400 Dropbox usernames and passwords in plain text, with a note that over seven million accounts have been compromised in total. Dropbox has since announced on its blog that it wasn't hacked, and that the leaked passwords were stolen from a third party service.
Those who rely on Dropbox to store their personal files may have lost some of their data. The service has experienced some issues regarding a bug in older versions of its available desktop apps. This bug deleted files uploaded by affected users who activated the Selective Sync feature, leading some to find they'd lost a large amount of files.
Dropbox is cutting the price for 1 TB of their cloud storage the service all the way down to $9.99 a month. The change shows that the company is going after Microsoft's OneDrive and Google Drive's paid cloud storage services.

Earlier today, Google slashed their cloud storage pricing for Google Drive to some insanely low numbers. How low? For just $1.99 a month you get 100GB of storage. If you want to get 100GB on OneDrive you’ll need to pony up $7.49 per month to do that. The pricing wars are now officially on for cloud storage and hopefully the only winners here will be us, the consumers. Let’s check out how some of the major cloud storage services stack up against one another for pricing.
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.
