Dropbox Android beta build offers auto camera uploads

Android, Android apps, Tech Digest news

If you’re anything like me, most of my cameraphone shots never end up anywhere other than on my smartphone’s screen as I can’t be bothered digging out the cables needed to transfer them. A new experimental build of Dropbox for Android may change all that however, as it does all the work automatically.

Dropbox Experimental Android Forum Build 2.0.9 adds a new feature to the cloud storage service that sees your mobile snaps beamed into your Dropbox folder straight after you’ve snapped a shot, avoiding the need for either cables or an upload manager.

The first picture you send via the new feature bags you 500MB of Dropbox space, which extends by a further 500MB for every 500MB of images you upload, up to a cap of 5GB.

The only limitation in this otherwise superb upgrade is file size; uploads are limited to no bigger than 180MB in size, meaning your HD videos will have to be quite short to get automatically sent.

As it’s currently just a beta release, the app hasn’t hit the Android Market yet. However, you can grab the experimental build direct from Dropbox by clicking here.
