Dropbox app debuts on Windows 8 Store

After more than three months since when Microsoft announced the Dropbox Windows 8 app in its Build Developer conference in October, the app has finally been released in the Windows 8 Store. The app is available in both the Windows 8 and the RT versions and allows users to open & edit files using other Windows 8 apps and then share them using the Share Charm. Microsoft has also provided Search Charm support for the app.

Overall design and functionality of the app has is too minimalist and is basically a way to access Dropbox via a web interface fitted into the ergonomically limited world of the tiled Windows 8 screen. For Microsoft however, Dropbox is yet another major name for the Windows 8 store especially at a time when Microsoft needs all the attention it can get from both consumers and developers for their new platform.
