Dropbox app updated with optimizations for iPhone 6 and support for Touch ID on iOS 8
Dropbox has just updated its official iOS app with optimizations for the new iPhones and additional improvements for Apple’s new mobile operating system.
Through its latest update, Dropbox for iOS has finally been enhanced with interface tweaks for the larger screens of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
Moreover, the update adds a couple of improvements for iOS 8. One is support for Dropbox data protection via Touch ID in addition to passcode lock. The other is a fix for previewing RTF files on iOS 8.
Dropbox was updated shortly after the release of iOS 8 with the ability to see recent activity in the app’s Today widget in the Notification Center and the ability to save files to and open files in Dropbox directly from other apps. It was also updated to restore its automatic backup functionality, which encountered certain syncing issues in iOS 8.
The new version of Dropbox also includes general stability and performance improvements.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Dropbox is available on the App Store for free.
Last week, Dropbox updated its popular email app, Mailbox, with iPhone 6 support, swipe customization options, and fixes for email rendering and push notifications in iOS 8.
Also last week, Dropbox denied that its cloud storage service was breached after reports claimed that hundreds of username and password combinations were allegedly hacked from Dropbox accounts.
