Dropbox app gets new design, new photo tab

Dropbox for iOS has been updated to version 2.0, and with it comes a slick new design and an all new photos tab with timeline. Dropbox says:

Now all of your photos are right at your fingertips with the brand new Photos tab. With just a tap, you’ll be able to scroll through a timeline of all the photos you’ve automatically uploaded (including the pocket-dialed ones too). And since Dropbox is a one stop shop for all your memories, you can also check out the photos you’ve uploaded from everywhere else!

And as pointed out by our own Seth Clifford, Dropbox is yet another example of an app switching to a flatter, simpler, more digitally authentic interface design, similar to what's found on Windows Phone. Dropbox, talking about just that design, says:

We’ve packed a ton of love and tiny details into our new iOS design, and we think you’ll dig its simplicity. For example, we got rid of the text labels on our tabs in favor of clean and streamlined iconography. Splashed across the app is the glorious Dropbox blue you’ve come to know and love, and we’ve reduced complexity to make everything feel so fresh and so clean, clean.

If you're a Dropbox user and don't have the app installed on your iPhone or iPad, go get it now. Otherwise, hit the update button and enjoy.
