Dropbox UWP hits v5.0, gains facelift, new layout

Published by at

Last covered here back in May, Dropbox UWP continues to shine on Windows 10 Mobile, with this week seeing the release of the big v5.0. In fairness, the app was already pretty slick and the overhaul here is minor, but there's an extra layout/view, plus everything looks... 'fresher'!

Here's the official changelog for Dropbox version 5.0 for Windows 10:

  • Display your files with 3 different layouts: gallery view, list view and content view
  • New design
  • New features for Dropbox Business users

And here's v5.0 in action on my Lumia 950 XL:


Dropbox was always very white and clean - it's just a bit cleaner still now, though there's no sign of translucency or Fluent Design - on Mobile anyway; (right) there's now a choice of three views/layouts: list, content, and gallery. Something for everyone!

Dropbox UWP app for Windows 10 is something of a star in the ecosystem. Perhaps even the best Dropbox implementation in the mobile world? It's free anyway, as is a Dropbox account. You can grab or update the Dropbox UWP here in the Store.
