Dropbox for iOS App Gains Push Notifications for Shared Folders, New PDF Viewer

Dropbox has launched a new version of its iOS app, providing push notifications of shared folders for the first time. Previously, when waiting for someone to share a folder with you, you had to repeatedly open and close the app to check for its availability.

The feature is likely to be most appreciated by business users, as Dropbox file-sharing has become a very popular way to work around the size limits of email attachments when distributing large presentations.

Dropbox 2.1 also adds better support for PDF viewing, displaying multiple pages on a screen, and file-sorting by date-modified, another feature of greatest value to business users who often deal with frequently-updated documents where it is vital to be working with the latest version.

Dropbox is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

They are now using http://pspdfkit.com as their new PDF viewer. (I helped them integrate it)

Yawn, Box is much much better. Stopped using DB because honestly it felt like amateur hour compared to others. Settled on box because they are enterprise level and were giving 50gb for signing up. This was like a year and half ago though.


That's the exact reason I don't use Box.

It just feels too corporate and they don't seem to want consumers paying them anything.

Not only that, but the best part of the update is that you can now see your files from newest to oldest too! This is one of the things that many like me appreciate it, especially if you are just accustomed to throwing anything inside and need to access the newest stuff first.

Why no annotations??? This would kill some of the PDF apps!


That's just a simple switch away, they'll probably turn this on soon.

Dropbox is wonderful. Also, how come Adobe PDF viewers are the only ones that require hourly updates?

Is there a way to add people to shared folders in the app? I find this to be a strange omission if not.
