Dropbox for Android is updated, and a lot faster Dropbox has announced its updated Android app, version 3.0, which promises to be "better, faster and more usable."
The company has listed all the new updates and new features for the app via a new blog post:

"Put photos where you need them. We've added a "plus" button that lets you take a photo right from the folder you want to save it to. Want to share whiteboard notes from a meeting with everyone? Just go to a shared folder, snap a photo, and upload it directly. Best of all, photos you take using the "plus" button will go straight to Dropbox, bypassing your gallery and saving space on your device."



Find stuff faster. Our new search icon -- located in the top menu -- helps you find just what you're looking for (and you can search within documents too). We've also made browsing easier. Now you can swipe left and right to easily navigate through folders on the go.





Take action on files. We've put key sharing controls -- and common file actions like favoriting, moving, and renaming -- in the same place across the app. Whether you're in your file list or previewing a document or photo, just go to the info pane to take action. You'll also see richer info like file and folder locations, modification dates, and shared folder members in the file list.
