Dropbox for Android Updated to Version 188.8.131.52, Gets New UI and Easier PC Link
Dropbox released this week a fresh update of its Android app to version 184.108.40.206, bringing some new design traits and features to the famous cloud app. For example we get a new app icon and an easier setup in relation to the PC.
This version offers a fix for the issues that prevented third party apps to authenticate successfully. There’s also a feature for using the device’s camera to setup and link Dropbox to a computer. This option is dubbed Link a Computer and can be found in the Settings menu of the Dropbox app. All you need to do is open this link on your computer, point your handset’s camera at the QR code on the PC screen and then read the code.
The computer gets authenticated following that, then you are prompted to download and install the Dropbox client, so it’s all set. Then, after the installation the Dropbox account will already be set up on your computer. A new set of icons has been implemented here and the file extension text overlays have been removed, plus the file type logos on the icons.
You can download the app here.
