Dropbox updates app for Android, iOS to follow


Popular cloud service provider Dropbox has announced that their latest update for their Android application will now have video streaming capabilities. Those who subscribe to the service and have an Android device, with an Ice Cream Sandwich OS installed, can now view videos without downloading the latter to their smartphones or tablets.

Dropbox’s mobile application enables subscribers and users to access their documents, files and content shared by peers remotely, using their mobile devices.

This update is currently exclusive to Android smartphones that have Ice Cream Sandwich installed on them. It was launched a few days after Samsung released their latest flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S3. iOS users will receive this update soon.

Those who bought the Samsung Galaxy S3, depending on their mobile service provider, can have as much as 50GB of free cloud storage. Though not all telecommunication companies give this free package to their customers, but most of new Galaxy S3 packages come with this free Dropbox service.

Cloud based file storage and sharing services are quite popular nowadays since access to them can be done remotely (“accessing the cloud”).

Dropbox for Android can be downloaded at the Google Play Store.

If you’re a Samsung Galaxy S3 user, do you have a free Dropbox storage?
