Dropbox has announced “significant product updates”, introducing Smart Sync (Dropbox Infinite), and Paper.
According to beta news, the company says the introduction of Smart Sync and Paper will boost team productivity and improve collaborative processes, end-to-end. First up is the Smart Sync. Dropbox calls it an “industry first”, cross-platform, on-demand cloud storage solution. It offers intuitive storage, allowing users to sync all the content from their computers to their Dropbox accounts.
Paper is a Google Docs competitor that Dropbox originally launched in open beta to give users the ability to collaborate on a given document through a web or mobile interface, and to utilize project management features. Paper is now available in 21 languages worldwide, according to a press release..
Smart Sync or Project Infinite allows users to more easily access their content folders from their desktop file system, while taking up almost no local disk space until the content is added, the release said.
The feature works on both Windows and Mac computers, backwards compatible as far back as Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.9. The announcements come a few days after a bug was discovered in the application that restored files back to user accounts that were deleted years ago.
