It’s been a long wait for the Windows 8, Windows 10 Dropbox app, but it’s been worth it! The app is up on the Store, free to download and use by any user around the world. Although its competitors have already published apps, it seems that the developers of Dropbox have taken their time for developing the app.

The time was well spent, and the Dropbox app for Windows 10, Windows 8 is up and working perfectly! Although it needs some updates and a few features to be added, it looks and works flawlessly. The base for the future features is rock solid, which is the first sign of a good app.

General Impressions of the Dropbox App

The Dropbox app for Windows 10, Windows 8 is fairly simple. Its interface is very simple and the developers have adopted the Windows 10. Windows 8 Tile look, but also kept to the traditional Dropbox look and created a balance between the two. The service is still as easy to use as ever, and thanks to its intuitive and simple UI, it can be used by anyone.

The app integrates perfectly with any Windows 10, Windows 8 machine, allowing users to share files from other apps to their Dropbox folder, and also share Dropbox files with their contacts or via email. Also, the app allows users to open and edit files directly from within the app, although when opening videos the app will forward users to the Windows 8, Windows 10 Media Player.

Sharing is done via the Windows 8, Windows 10 Charms bar and also from the Charms Bar, users can search their Dropbox folder with great speed. This shows us that the app is properly developed, and when it will have some other features, it will become one of the best apps for cloud storage.

Unfortunately, there is not much else to talk about in regard to the app. At this moment, it is still limited in features, for instance, there is no upload feature in the app. Delete function is also missing and when right clicking on a file, it does not show any options.

For now, the app could be considered a really good file browser, but with no options of managing your files, such as move, copy or delete. Also, for the moment there is no “Refresh” option, but we hope that it will be available in future updates, along with the other missing features.
