Dropbox comes to Android in Beta

Today, Dropox announced the release of a beta version of their Dropbox application for Android. For the time being, the new software solution arrives on Android handsets as a limited distribution, user-id locked download, and hasn’t been included yet in the Android Market.
You can head over to http://www.dropbox.com/androidbeta for downloading the beta.

The working features of the application include:

  • Access your Dropbox on the go – All the contents of your Dropbox are available for viewing. You can even stream music and movies in your Dropbox straight to your Android device.
  • Make edits to your files and sync them back to Dropbox – Any changes you make to your files will sync back up to your Dropbox.
  • Download files for offline viewing – Add files to ‘Favorites’ and they’ll be accessible at any time.
  • Upload files and sync them to your Dropbox – Take a photo, shoot a video, or upload some audio from your Android phone and email its public link to a friend in less than a minute.
  • Share links to files in your Dropbox – Yes! Any file in your Dropbox!

    As a long time user of Jungle Disk for online back up and sync, I find dropbox much more user-friendly and intuitive and I have now replaced “My Documents” with “My Dropbox” in windows explorer, no need to have the two folders and drag files into the other. Missed out on the beta but can't wait to try the new android app!
