Dropbox Kicks Off Chapter 2 with Carousel Gallery App


Dropbox has launched Carousel, a photo and video gallery app for iOS and Android which combines the photos on the users mobile together with those in their Dropbox account.

These photos and videos can be navigated by event – the idea being that, thanks to cloud storage, mobile users will be able to access all the digital photos theyve ever taken through the app – and sent directly to other users via a private conversations feature.

Carousel is part of what Dropbox is terming Chapter 2 of the companys strategy, which has also seen it enable users to connect their Dropbox for Business and personal accounts across devices, and bring its Mailbox app to Android, with a new auto-swipe feature thats intended to learn what the user is archiving without reading and applying it to future emails.
