File-sharing service Dropbox has updated its official iOS app with a number of new features, including full optimization for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as well as integration with Touch ID for more convenient unlocking. The app also includes a fix for previewing rich text format files and general stability and performance improvements.
Dropbox saw its last major update last month after the release of iOS 8 which brought a new Notification Center widget, a new Share extension that allows files from other apps to be opened and saved, and the ability to manage shared folders in the app. A number of other apps have also included support for Touch ID since the release of iOS 8 last month.
Dropbox is a free app for the iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Such a shame.
I am a long-time Dropbox paying customer and I still rate them as #1 at what they do.
I also wouldn't trust Apple to look after any of my personal data, particularly my important files & documents! Absolutely no chance in hell.
THE BEST iPhone.
Except that iCloud was the one hacked. #
Apple was really the innovator in the cloud concept even before it was called "the cloud." The problem is, in 14 years, it has been unable to get it right. How much MORE time do you think Apple deserves? (FWIW I've had an account since the iTools days, even had a paid account before DropBox came along. iDisk was soon slow it was a no brainer for me to switch.)
Simple. Powerful. Easy. Intuitive. Versatile. Scalable.
Dropbox even lets you publish your iWeb websites. Remember that, Apple? When you empowered people to create and share content, rather than just consume it?
Love Apple but Dropbox is more Apple-like than iCloud.
