Mobile sharing in a snap

Posted by Isaac Goldberg on December 17, 2013

Whether you’re sharing recent vacation photos with friends or collaborating on presentations with colleagues, Dropbox shared folders are great for working with others as though you’re on a single computer. Today, we’re making things even easier by letting you share folders on the go—straight from our Android app!

To get started, simply create a new folder (or pick an existing one) and tap ‘Share’ from its quick actions. From there, it’s easy to invite people to your folder so you can all access and work on the same content. Of course, you can always change members or permissions from your shared folder’s settings, too.




Android users can get started today by grabbing the latest Dropbox app from the Play Store. iOS users, hang tight—mobile sharing will come your way early next year.

Happy sharing!

The context menu on your lists is starting to look really outdated. Great update though!

Sign up to and get 20GB of free space! That’s 10 times more than Dropbox, and has all the great features!

They have no file size upload limit or bandwidth limits either!

The iOS operating system gives the maximum number of apps to choose from, over 650,000 apps. The Android is preferred for its integration with Google.

Glad to have the ability to share with a bit more simplicity, though I am still finding it very difficult to manage my shares across multiple departments with such single level sharing. Will there ever be a way to easily manage the permissions of each individual user within a share?
