Dropbox for Android Gets Contact Sharing, Credit Card Scanning and More
Dropbox for Android has just evolved to a new level, thanks to an update to its Android app, that makes it easier to share stuff from the cloud. You can also upgrade to a Pro account now simply by using your device’s camera.
The new Dropbox Android app includes subtle changes, so don’t expect to be blown away from the start. Among others you get a new app icon, that simplifies the look of Dropbox in line with the new branding. We also get a new tab in the app interface, with an icon that reminds us of the Google+ Mr Jingle.
That special tab is used to collect and view Dropbox notifications. Finally, we get a new option to send a file to someone in the contacts list, with said file being sent via email. Dropbox will allow you to compose the email directly from the app, for a faster mail sending experience. You will be asked for permissions to access Contacts and Camera when using the app.
And now you can upgrade the account by clicking on the scan card label and taking a snap of your credit card and then your info will be filled in. The Dropbox app version 2.3.11 is up for download here.
