Dropbox has unveiled an updated Android application with enhanced photo sharing and file management services.
The app was unveiled on the Dropbox blog and offers a variety of improved features, according to the firm.
"Today, we're taking the wraps off our newly redesigned Dropbox for Android app. We've heard your feedback, and this new version has been built to make Dropbox on Android better, faster and more usable," read the post.
"Not only does it sport a fresh look that's right at home on the latest versions of Android, it also has new features to help you get to your stuff on the go."
The app adds a 'plus' button to let users take and automatically save photos while in open folders, and a new search icon at the top of the menu that aims to make it easier to track down specific files.
It also features updated quick action controls for easier sharing of files.
"We've put key sharing controls - and common file actions like favoriting, moving and renaming - in the same place across the app," read the blog post.
"Whether you're in your file list or previewing a document or photo, just go to the info pane to take action. You'll also see richer info like file and folder locations, modification dates and shared folder members in the file list."
Another minor update is the ability to navigate between folders by swiping left or right.
The update comes during a push by Dropbox to grow its enterprise market share. Dropbox for Business released a security-focused update earlier in June that featured improved admin controls and shared folder capabilities.
Prior to the update Dropbox launched a 'badge' cloud collaboration tool for business users, alongside a preview 'comments' feature to bolster its collaboration capabilities.
The work has generated some positive results. Dropbox for Business was awarded ISO 27018 cloud security certification in May by EY CertifyPoint.
