Dropbox, the popular cloud storage provider, has released dedicated Windows 8 app and is now available in the Store. While Dropbox for Windows 8 app can be installed alongside the desktop version of Dropbox, it’s more useful for users who’re using a tablet or touch device powered by Windows RT operating system.
The initial release of Dropbox is missing most features and options present in the desktop version. For instance, you can’t upload or download your files using the current version of the app. It doesn’t let you share link, delete, rename, and move files as well. You can only browse your Dropbox account and preview files.
The app sports a simple and touch-friendly interface. Once installed, launch the app by clicking or tapping on the Dropbox tile on the Start screen, enter your Dropbox credentials and finally click log in button to start syncing with the cloud.
To sign out, open up the app, access the Charms bar by swiping-in from the right edge of the screen (or move mouse cursor to upper or lower right corner of the screen), click Settings, click Account, and then click Sign Out button.
Dropbox app is completely free for users running Windows 8 and Windows RT operating systems. If you’re running Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro version, we recommend you download the desktop version of Dropbox for Windows 8 to get easily manage your account.
