02.02.17 Dropbox launched collaboration app Paper globally in 21 languages


Dropbox is rolling out its note-collaboration app Paper globally localized into 21 languages. It also gets some new tools that allow users to automatically generate presentations and run them through Paper in their browsers.  Paper came out in a closed beta in the second quarter last year, and then opened as a public beta in the third quarter. As it’s inched closer to launch, both Google and Salesforce in some ways have thrown their weight behind collaborative tools in a similar vein to Paper. Salesforce bought Quip for $750 million late last year. While Paper was already competing with Quip in some ways, Salesforce’s major acquisition of the company signaled that it was quickly looking to broaden its enterprise toolkit. That means that Dropbox will likely come more into direct competition in this space with Salesforce, which may be able to throw more resources at the problem than Dropbox can. For Dropbox, the hope is that its strategy of religiously tracking user behavior will be part of the edge that keeps them ahead of those larger companies.



2016 Dropbox adds PDF signing, iMessage integrations


Dropbox is updating its iOS app with few new features that should help it continue to have a toehold within larger companies. The first update is PDF signing, which allows users to open PDF files right from their mobile devices and insert signatures and text into them. Another update Dropbox is getting today is an integration with iMessage - rich file-sharing within iMessage that includes previews and the like for its users. Besides, the new lock-screen widget will give users the ability to do the most common actions you might find in a Dropbox app from the lock screen. Tapping on one of the functions will go straight to an operation within Dropbox.



2016 Dropbox adds a new dashboard for IT admins


Cloud storage service Dropbox unveiled AdminX, a new dashboard aimed at IT admins to better tailor and control their companies’ files and users on Dropbox Business accounts. Dropbox says that AdminX has been an internal initiative for a year already: and the premise is simple. While there have been admin tools on Dropbox Business ever since the product was launched, these have not seen much use. So taking a page from its own consumerization book, Dropbox has reimagined them with more intuition and simpler interfaces. At the same time, the company is preparing to launch yet more services that take it beyond basic storage: soon it plans to launch mobile device management as part of the AdminX console so that admins can use Dropbox to control not just Dropbox-based files but actual devices.



2016 Dropbox launched a new way to scan documents with your phone


Dropbox released a slew of new enterprise features. The most interesting new feature is a tool in its mobile application that allows business users to scan documents and upload them directly into Dropbox. The idea is that there is still a lot of activity and business development that happens in the real world, and Dropbox hopes to seamlessly extend that into its services. Here’s one of the more unique aspects: the company uses optical character recognition (or OCR, for short) to recognize text on the document that it’s scanning. That makes content within those documents — if it works — actually searchable inside the app. Given that Dropbox’s strength has generally been its core technology, and its quick synchronization tools, the company is clearly leaning on that in order to build a differentiated product.



2016 Dropbox will allow users to access cloud-only folders from Windows and Mac


Dropbox announced Project Infinite that is going to make managing your local computer storage and cloud storage quite a bit easier. The idea is to allow you to access your files on Dropbox right in Finder or Explorer instead of needing to navigate Dropbox's online interface. In other words, the files look like they're in your computer but actually aren't, allowing you to easily find and manage Dropbox-only files. There is no information about when this update will be coming to Dropbox or whether it will only be available to paid pro users or business users.
