Posted on Jan 31 2013 - 11:13am by Huzoor Bux

Dropbox wish to stop thinking of data stored on the service as files and instead think of it as types of data. In that spirit the Dropbox lunched 2 new features for its site Wed: a new preview for document files, and a new design for albums of pictures you have shared.


A new pictures view will let you see all of the pictures save on your Dropbox, organized chronologically.

Pictures can be selected from that view, and shared as a virtual collection with a frends on Fbook, Twitter and email. On Fbook images can be shared in a personal msg or on a wall, and on Twitter images will shown up as a Twitter card.


Document previews will let Dropbox users click on any file within Dropbox and get a instant preview without having to download the file. So you can know quickly you were giving the correct file to a collegue without having to download it 1st.
