With the release of Windows new version, Windows 8, Dropbox has also launched a Windows 8 dedicated app that you can now find in the Windows Store. If you already have a desktop Dropbox version, you can still install the Windows 8 app along with it. The app version is especially useful for touch device owners. There are a few major differences in the two versions though. With Dropbox app version you can’t share your links nor can you rename, delete or move files from one folder to another. Also, there is no option to download or upload anything to your account. The only option you have is to preview your files form your Dropbox account.
App interface is a lot simpler for touch device users. After installation all you have to do is, tap/click the Dropbox tile added to your Start screen and enter your Dropbox information. Finally, hit login.
Signing out is a bit of a hassle. Launch the app again to sign out, then bring in the Charms bar by either swiping in from the right side of the screen or hovering the cursor over the top or bottom right corner. Go to Settings, tap Account and click on the Sign Out option.
Dropbox app version doesn’t cost a single penny for users having Windows 8 or Windows RT as their Operating Systems. Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro users should get desktop Dropbox version instead for ease of managing your files. Windows RT powered device users can, on the other hand, use apps like Cloud Save and All my Storage to operate cloud storage services like Dropbox.
