+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

An update has arrived for Dropbox‘s iOS app, with accessibility improvements being the main focus of this new version.

The update brings a new welcome tutorial, with clearer identification of its contents and VoiceOver support added. Photo titles are now properly announced, with thumbnails that are also more descriptive. Passcode lock can be enabled and disabled more easily, with the passcode field and digits now easier to select. Finally, a new button to close out the ‘More Actions’ menu has been added for VoiceOver, making it easier to get back to other areas of the app. Dropbox claims that this is just the beginning for accessibility improvements, with more set to arrive via more updates in the future.

Dropbox is available to download from the App Store now for free.
