Dropbox update v3.0 introduces Material Design for the masses
Dropbox is one hell of a service, but they haven’t been the best at keeping up with the times and adopting Material Design, which makes today’s news amazing for Google fans. The Dropbox Android app received an update with Material Design only some weeks ago, but it was exclusive to beta users. Today the company decides to take things to the next level and introduce Google’s design language to the masses.
The new update to the Dropbox app is labeled as version 3.0, and the change in design seems to be the only main improvement. This is one huge change, though. The interface looks much cleaner, and the navigation menu makes it much easier to roam around the application. Not to mention, it’s so much easier to find that floating action button, as opposed to looking all over the app just to upload a photo.
Dropbox’s latest update is currently rolling out to Google Play Store users. I still haven’t seen my update, but it should be coming soon. It took Dropbox way long to get on board with Material Design. It won’t really hurt to wait a bit more. I just find it impressive that we are still worrying about developers adopting Material Design, smack in the middle of 2015.
