The popular companion app for Dropbox has just received a number of new features with an update to version 18.2.
Quickly access your Dropbox from the lock screen.
Easily the biggest feature is an iMessage app for iOS 10 users. You can quickly and easily share files from your Dropbox account while chatting.
From the new widget, you can create, view, and upload files without unlocking an iPhone. It also allows users to scan documents or receipts to your account.
To add the widget, head down to the bottom of the Notification Center and select “Edit.” Then choose Dropbox.
Sign PDFs and more
Sign in a snap.
Another welcome addition is PDF signing. Right after receiving a document, you can sign it directly in the app.
If you’re working collaboratively, the app will now also send a notification if someone saves a new version of the file.
Finally, the app now supports picture-in-picture support on the iPad. That means you’ll be able to watch a video from your Dropbox while doing other work on the tablet. Spilt-screen support should also arrive, according to the company, in the coming weeks.
Dropbox is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models and can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
Users automatically receive 2GB of storage for no charge. A pro subscription unlocks up to 1TB of storage and can be purchased with an in-app purchase of $25.99 for three months or $99.99 per year. The monthly charge is $9.99.
