Dropbox gets facelift for ICS

The Dropbox team gave word yesterday that they’re releasing a new version of the Dropbox Android app, and they’ve got a few new tricks in store.

The app now features 3 tabs across the top: “Dropbox,” “Uploads,” and “Favorites”. Open the first tab, and you’ll find something similair to the previous version of Dropbox.

The second allows you to select multiple files and perform bulk uploads, and as you can see, there’s a new gallery view for photos that’s much more aesthetically pleasing that the old file explorer list.

The favorites tab allows you to view files you have a local copy of, because you’ve “starred” or “favorited” them.

Not only are they showing love for ICS, but Honeycomb gets a taste of the new Dropbox goodness as well, with search and settings buttons built into the top right corner. The tabs on the tablet version of the app function the same way as on the phone version, but they’re just icons instead of labeled tabs.

There were some bug fixes and other wrinkles ironed out in this version, and you can now also rename files saved in your Dropbox, although there’s still no option to move them directly from one folder to another.

You can check out all the new features of the update by downloading it from here, or by scanning the QR code below. Be sure to let us know what you think about the UI changes by leaving a comment!

When you spend as much time as we do looking at the horizon, it’s easy to lose sight of things right in front of you. As great as it is to talk about the next hot phone or tablet, we know a vast majority of you already have a device and plan to stick with it for quite a while. So, instead of making you angry with rumors of the next killer handset, we’d rather help you get the most of the one that is on your desk right now. With that, we’re starting off a new series called Developers We Love. These are the guys you should be looking first for great apps and games to take advantage of your Android devices.

This time we focus on LevelUp Studio.

    Would be nice if there were a way to automatically/instantly upload every photo I take to a subfolder in Dropbox, similar to the Picasaweb upload.
