We reported in late December on Dropbox’s latest Android beta in which the company tested multi-photo sharing and deletion as well as photo album support. It took a few weeks to iron out the bugs but the company has launched Dropbox 2.3, bringing all those features and a few performance and bug fixes to the table.

The update isn’t huge, but it brings the Android version to feature parity with its iOS counterpart, and integrates incredibly with Android’s native sharing APIs.

If you’ve yet to sign up for Dropbox, you get 2GB for free upon registration.

    If you buy a GS3 or Note 2, you get a 2-year, 50GB Dropbox subscription included. That’s a nice bonus.

      And two years from now they hold your data hostage for a ransom!

    I’m about ready to move from drobox to box.net now. They’re really surpassed dropbox in term of control over sharing, storage space, desktop sycn, control over what folder to sync. Not to mention that box doesn’t have all the spammers trying to bump up their own storage space. The picture sharing is a nice feature, but I like the enterprize features of box better.

    The Android version has always supported background photo upload. This is a key feature and saying that droid version has feature parity is selling it short. On iOS you have to open dropbox to get the photos to upload. (I want my Android back!)

    It’s nice to see progress; but unless their photo albums support meta-data (captions, tags, etc.) it’s just files in a directory.
