When you think of cloud storage, Dropbox is probably decently high up on the list in your mind. Just today, the company announced a universal Widows app that should be coming to the Windows 10 app store later this week, and is free for all users. Being a universal app, Dropbox takes advantage of a whole slew of new features introduced in Windows 10, including but not limited to Windows Hello, Live Tiles, and Interactive notifications. The list of new features in the app are listed by the Windows Blog as:
- Updated for Windows 10: Performance improvements and faster launching for our Universal Windows Platform app.
- Enable Windows Hello: Add an extra layer of protection with Windows Hello, which uses either your face, fingerprint, or iris instead of your password to unlock your Dropbox*.
- Quick Access to Recent Files: Using Jump List, all you have to do is right-click on the Dropbox app icon in your taskbar.
- Interactive Device Notifications: Accept a shared folder invitation without opening the app with Notifications.
- Quick Search: You don’t need to click on the search icon; just type what you want to search.
- Drag and Drop: To move or copy a file into Dropbox, just drag and drop it from Windows File Explorer. Within the app, you can also move or copy files into other folders by dragging and dropping them between folders (hold Ctrl to copy)
- Commenting: Add comments directly on your files, and bring others into the discussion with @mentions.
- And more, coming soon!
The app really looks quite nice, and should integrate well into Windows 10 for those who are not a fan of Microsoft’s Onedrive service.
