Dropbox announced a suite of new Productivity Tools earlier this year. It has boosted this with a raft of new features for iOS, including the ability to sign PDFs from Dropbox, a new lock screen widget that allows you to start workflows quickly and easily, sharing Dropbox files in iMessage, split screen capabilities and more.
The new features are available from the recently updated Dropbox for iOS app, which is a free download from the App Store.
Sign PDFs right from Dropbox
Get back the time it used to take to print, sign, scan, email or fax urgent documents. Now, as soon as a PDF gets sent your way, you can sign it directly in your Dropbox app.
Share Dropbox files in iMessage
Now you can collaborate with teammates right from where you’re chatting. The new iMessage integration for iOS 10 lets you select Dropbox files from within iMessage and share them in-line with the conversation, instead of switching back and forth between apps.
Create and view files without unlocking your phone
Want a shortcut to some of your most common Dropbox workflows? After updating to iOS 10, just add the new Dropbox widget to your lock screen. From there, you can quickly create, view and upload files, and even scan docs or receipts into Dropbox.
Stay up-to-date when you view files on mobile
Keep on the same page as your team, even when you’re away from your desk. Our updated app notifies you as soon as someone saves a new version of a file you’re viewing – and, with just a tap, you can reload to see what’s changed.
Share screen time on your iPad with other apps
With support for picture-in-picture, you can now watch a video from your Dropbox while working in another app on your iPad. And in the coming weeks, we’ll be launching split-screen support that lets you work seamlessly within Dropbox and other apps at the same time – without having to toggle back and forth.
