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.
