Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:07 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

After countless partnership announcements between Microsoft and Dropbox, it took Dropbox a little bit longer to finally hit Windows Phone devices and Windows (RT) tablets but it finally happened. The Dropbox app is now available for Windows Phones and tablets and it was developed by Rudy Huyn, who is well known for his first class Windows Phone apps. The Windows Phone and tablet version comes with most features we already know from the Android and iOS clients. It allows to automatically back up photos to Dropbox, allows to mark files as favorites (aka offline mode) so you can get to them even when you don't have an Internet connection and last but not least it allows to access both your personal and work accounts at once.
