Dropbox for iOS is being updated today with iOS 10 support and new features to improve the file storage and sharing experience.

With Messages integration, Dropbox users can select Dropbox files from within the Messages app and share them with friends and colleagues, alleviating the need to open the Dropbox app and copy a link. A new Dropbox widget can be added to the lock screen, providing easier access to tools for creating, viewing, and uploading files.

There's a new tool in the Dropbox for signing PDFs, and there are options for getting notified when a file has been updated by a colleague so it can be refreshed with a tap.

Dropbox now includes support for picture-in-picture, a feature designed to let iPad users watch videos while performing other tasks. Split-screen support for compatible iPads is also coming in the near future, but won't be included in today's update.

Dropbox can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Sorry guys, I moved on to iCloud. It was hard to give up the free space but I had enough of the macOS app

I suppose my needs are meager, but the Dropbox Mac and iOS apps have both been fine for me.

I use Dropbox for some things, iCloud for others, and neither has given me enough trouble to switch totally in either direction.

Too little too late. OneDrive and iCloud full fill our needs. Since we (as a company) need Office day-to-day bases and therefore have Office 365 subscription not using OneDrive would make very little sense. For other uses we have iCloud. IMHO, Dropbox is bit like Evernote. Unfortunately, they both have lost their momentum they had when competitors were still trying to figure out how the cloud should be working. Now that competitors have their services up and running the old ones have either set their prices too high or lack the required integration.

Is this proper digital signing of PDFs, or the usual rubbish where a simple graphic gets added to a PDF, adding no legal weight whatsoever?

If someone sends me a PDF with a signature on it, it means nothing unless a) the document is immutable and b) it can be shown that the signature was added by an identifiable individual and certification authority.

It's always been a bit of a mystery to me why Apple don't offer a true digital signing service for documents (PDF, Pages, Numbers etc.) using a user's Apple ID. They are in a prime position to be able to do this.

As I understand it, Adobe and others offer such a service, but you have to pay to get documents signed. Wouldn't it be great if you could just take a PDF on your Mac, sign it with you signature, and have it locked and certified automatically by an Apple server (for free). A recipient of such a document could be confident of the document's legitimacy.

Pretty nice update. I'm baffled as to how such a widely used productivity app hasn't had split screen support this whole time, but I'm relieved to hear it's finally coming.

The MacoOS app is crud TBH. But due to work issues we have just started using a group share Dropbox account and it is working well. Hopefully these updates will help.

Only problem I have is if I want basic group tools I am being forced to look at. Dropbox Business account. If iCloud gets its act together and broadens our Dropbox will get dropped again.
