Good news for Android users of Dropbox apps. Last month, Dropbox announced a new app update that will bring the very useful document scanning feature to Google’s operating system. This means you no longer have to use a bulky scanner to convert files into PDFs — just bring your Android device.
The next time you visit Dropbox.com, you may be asked to create a new password. Why? Back in 2012 the cloud storage firm was hacked, and while it thought only email addresses had been stolen, new evidence has come to light that user passwords were compromised, too.
Despite a relatively no-frills platform, Dropbox has remained one of the most recognizable names in cloud storage. Apparently after nearly ten years in the market, it’s ready to move on to bigger and better things. Titled ‘Paper,’ the company’s newest service will take direct aim at Google Docs and Office 365 by offering real-time document collaboration and editing.
