Dropbox BlackBerry Now Available, Android, iOS Apps Get Updates

BlackBerry/Android/iOS: BlackBerry addicts, your days of emailing yourself files are nearly numbered. File syncing service Dropbox has released its previously closed beta BlackBerry app into the open while also giving Android and iOS users some nice new features.

DropBox for BlackBerry offers the same kind of file access, sharing and even media streaming that the service offers to desktop and other smartphone users. The easiest way to grab the app is to point your BlackBerry to dropbox.com/blackberry.

Android users who update their app (which recently hit the Market) will notice that Dropbox has added itself to the “Share” menu, so you can send Dropbox a file from nearly any app that lets you send anywhere. There’s also a new Shortcut option for the home screen to create direct links to Dropbox folders. iOS users are getting background uploading through iOS 4 multi-tasking, along with high-resolution and HD video support and automatic offline cacheing.

Finally, Dropbox also created a web list of Apps that work great with the service — in other words, apps that have some kind of connection to Dropbox, whether for file grabbing or storing. It’s a good place to check and see if your favourite mobile apps could become a bit more convenient.

All the Dropbox apps are free for their individual platforms. If you’ve got a favourite app that hooks well into Dropbox, tell us all about it in the comments.
