    Dropbox today updated its universal iOS app with the ability to use swipe gestures to perform tasks more quickly, as well as the ability to share multiple photos at a time.
    Previously, Dropbox iOS users had to enter an "edit" mode to manage their files, but they now have a way to perform those functions in fewer steps with a feature that resembles a mechanism used in the popular Mailbox app, which is owned by Dropbox.

    The update marks another effort by Dropbox to streamline sharing for users. Earlier this month, the company made sharing photos on its Mac client easier and in March updated the Mac app to simplify file sharing in general.

    Dropbox for iOS is a universal app and is available free in the App Store. [Direct Link]

    When are they going to fix the long file name problem for iPad and maybe iPhone?

    Should have never upgraded. This is a step backward.

    In an ethereal plane of existence.
    Magical performance improvements are the best! I see they're learning from Apple!

    I still don't know why they offer so little storage when all other competitors offer more. I stopped using them as my primary a while ago cause of that.

    Still need to be able to select a folder for offline viewing.

    To have to put files in your dropbox folders on your desktop, and then before running out the door to a client, open dropbox and find and manually check off every file individually for offline viewing makes the entire service more of a hassle than just copying the files over via friggin iTunes...

    iOS has been out for what, 6 years? And we still don't have a decent way of basic file management on these things? Ridiculous.

    this was a long-awaited features, dropbox is for sure the best cloud storage service.

    well, it's about time! we're still awaiting many basic features. dropbox should focus more on their mobile app.

    A complete mess

    The app is a complete wreck now. I've emailed DB support and they are working with me to resolve the issues. Probably wont be without another update but I hope that it soon!!! :(

    Agreed, can't believe this is still missing. It would also allow you to keep a folder in sync in the case of new files being added, instead of having to explicitly check off any new files. (Well, you'd have to launch the app to initiate a sync, but it would still be helpful.)

    That and the ability to download multiple images to your camera roll all at once. Doing it one by one is painful.
