Dropbox has recently released an optimized app for Windows 8 users. This app is a tablet friendly one and available at the Windows Store. The Dropbox app will run on any Windows 8 platform which includes the hybrid laptops with touch-screens along tablets like Surface RT which do not support all applications that run on Windows 8.
Unfortunately Dropbox has still not released an app for Windows 8 phone platform.
Is Dropbox App in Windows 8 worth your time?
- The app really is not all that useful if you already have the older version of Dropbox running on your Windows 8 PC. This is because this app is optimized only for the tablet interface and not the PC.
- It allows features like sharing photos with Facebook and Twitter friends using the Windows 8 Charm Share feature.
- It is very basic and if you have a Windows tablet then this is a must have app for you.
- On the downside the app does not seem to support selective sync for folders which is very useful especially if your device might not have continuous connectivity.
A Dropbox app is still not available for Windows phone, but it should be available sooner rather than later.
Try out the Dropbox app if you have a Windows tablet and let us know your views in your comments.
