    Do you use Dropbox to store online data? Do you use Android OS for your smartphone or tablet? If you answered yes to both, you are in for a Christmas (or late Hannakah) surprise. Dropbox has finally become user friendly. Mass picture deletions, mass doc sharing, and so forth. Here is the official list of new features (and yes they work. Been playing with dropbox beta on my S3);

    Good stuff, although I use Google drive for me most everything now (5 bucks a month for 100 gigs), I still use my Dropbox account to auto upload and backup my pictures and videos.

    i wish this was the case, but it isn't. I have registered two Galaxy S3's, a Note2 and a Tab over the last few months with Samsung. Maybe because I'm in the US?

    That's weird, because one, I'm from new zealand, two, my tablet is wifi only (so no carrier) and three, dropbox didn't come preloaded on my tablet (I needed to install it from the google play store). I guess I must have gotten lucky?
