Dropbox Updates its Android App with Document Previews and Smarter Search

Dropbox has updated its Android app with Document Preview and Smarter Search function. With the help of Doc Preview users can view, scroll and zoom in or out any Word document, PowerPoint presentation, or PDF straight from their Android device.


Smarter Search helps in many ways as:

  • One can now search in specific folders, or in the entire Dropbox

  • Dropbox will keep a track of your recent searches

  • The app now makes “typeahead” suggestions as one types in searches

The updated Android app comes with an ability to set view-only permissions on shared folders and available for Dropbox for Business customers in early access program.

One can download the updated version 2.4.3 directly from Google Play.

    Android is the largest player in the market of mobile platforms. For development of android app – One app, single objective must be your agenda. While you go to develop mobile apps, you should not try to make it a solution for many needs. Focus on offering with a single objective and develop mobile application around it.
