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.

Dropbox said it has also tailored the app for the Windows platform which means that you can pin any Dropbox folder to your Start screen for quick and easy access as well as it supports Microsoft's Live Tiles.

Sure you can now ask why you need Dropbox on your Windows Device, since all Windows devices come with free OneDrive storage which is even unlimited for Office 365 customers, but there are indeed some good reasons to still use Dropbox in addition. For instance the far better support of IFTT.

In any case, the app is available for download on Windows Phone (8.0 or higher) and Windows devices running on Windows RT or Windows 8.1; but Windows ratings don't look too good at the moment. If you are on Windows 81. and not RT, it's definitely recommended to install the full Dropbox client.

Cheers ~ Arne
