Online file hosting cloud behemoth Dropbox has rolled out a redesign that adds a serious amount of extra sheen and usability to the site – just when it’s starting to be seriously threatened by the likes of iTunes and Google Docs. What’s new? Read on for the full details.
The Dropbox refresh adds a couple of features that’ve been sorely lacking. Chief among those is the ability to easily sort your files by name, type, and – thank the lord – date modified, all via an action bar at the top. You can also right click to download files, which is a nice touch.
If you use Dropbox mostly for pictures, good news: that end of things has just been made a bit more useful. Click on one of the image thumbnails in the list and it’ll load up in Dropbox’ handy new image viewer. From there you can download or cycle through them their in full-screen glory.
Interested in Dropbox? It’s free for 2GB of storage, with price plans thereafter ranging up to £12.75 per month for 100GB. Like the new look? Let us know your thoughts below.
