Great news for all Dropbox users with Android devices – if you’re looking forward to increase the amount of storage space you have, you’re in luck. Dropbox has announced the release of its new Dropbox app for Android and a sweet promotion to go along with it. All you have to do is download the app for your phone/tablet, and use the app’s automatic camera upload feature. Upon the completion of your first automatic upload, you’ll be given an additional 500MB of storage. After that, for every subsequent 500MB worth of photos and videos you upload via the automatic upload feature, you’ll be given another 500MB automatically. You’ll be able to repeat this process until you’ve earned 5GB of additional storage – talk about generous!
In addition to the new automatic upload feature, the new Dropbox app now has no limits on the size of files you can upload, and includes support for upload resumes in the event of any interruptions. Performance improvements and bug fixes are also present in this new version. And in case you’re wondering, I tried the auto upload feature and successfully made my first free 500MB (you need to use the automatic upload for it to work). To download the Dropbox beta, just head over to the Dropbox forums for instructions and download links.
