Ember Gets Updated, Finally Adds Long-Requested Dropbox Sync

Ember Gets Updated, Finally Adds Long-Requested Dropbox Sync

May 21, 2014

Ember, the useful application for iOS and Mac that allows users to capture, annotate, and share screenshots on an iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer, has received an update adding its “most-requested” feature yet: Dropbox sync.

Now, users of both the iOS and Mac apps can sync content between their devices using Dropbox, rather than iCloud. New users of the iOS application can configure Dropbox sync from the get-go over at Ember's usual welcome screen (pictured above), while existing users of both apps can switch to syncing via Dropbox by following the instructions offered at Ember's website.

Over in the app's release notes, developer Realmac Software explains:

Ember for iOS does not currently offer a way to migrate from iCloud to Dropbox sync. If you’re using Ember for Mac as well as Ember for iOS, follow the steps at to get your library into Dropbox.

Besides the long-anticipated Dropbox sync, both applications have also received bug fixes and performance improvements – Realmac promises that each app is now faster than ever.

On the iOS side, Ember received a substantial update in January bringing annotations to the mobile application, and at the same time new blur and pixelate tools reached the Mac version of Ember. Plus, more than 50 smaller tweaks and enhancements were also made to the app.

Ember for iOS first launched on the App Store in December, and it promptly received our AppAdvice App of the Week award. For more information on the iOS application, be sure to take a look at our original review.

The recently updated Ember for iOS can be downloaded on the App Store for $4.99, while the Mac application is available on the Mac App Store for $49.99.
