Official Windows 8 DropBox app being released soon

6

imageDropbox has announced at LeWeb 2012 in Paris that the company has released a Modern UI Dropbox app for certification in the Windows 8 Store.

The app will become available as soon as it passes certification, and will support access to files, photos and media files stored in the cloud from the desktop but also on Windows RT devices like the Surface.

At the event, Aditya Agarwal, Vice President of Engineering at Dropbox, reconfirmed the company’s desire to develop apps for the major desktop and mobile operating systems and allow users to store and access their files from most modern devices.

Dropbox has more than 100 million registered users, making it one of the major services to adopt the new OS environment.

    Been using AllMyStorage for Win8. Two SkyDrive and one Dropbox account in one place. Easy to download and move files around. So not sure if I need this.

    The code port should be super easy to move over to WP8, but what is pretty gross is how these developers are showing all the love for W8 and completely ignoring the phone. Microsoft better be following up with these major W8 apps and pressing the devs to release WP8 versions.

    I have a dropbox account because previously access to SkyDrivewas blocked by the nannyware on our corporate PCs. Now that I have access to SkyDrive, who can give me a compelling reason to use dropbox over SkyDrive? Thanks
