Dropbox reveals iOS 7-inspired iPhone and iPad redesign

Dropbox has rolled out a redesign for the iPad and iPhone, something it says was inspired by the latest iteration of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 7. The design is simplified extensively, and is pretty streamlined in appearance, with a lot of contrast in the elements and a lot of white space. The update is available now from the Apple App Store.

Saying that the redesign is "like a new beginning," Dropbox has done a fair bit of tweaking to the app, and promises that this change "sets the stage for some exciting things to come." None of those changes were detailed, but the redesign is nice regardless. There's no word on when we'll be seeing the same redesign happen on Android, if it does.

This follows an announcement from last week from Dropbox, which updated a few things and brought Business users the ability to grab their personal documents from a single app, making things more simple. There's also the ability to now browse from multiple accounts in a single Files tab list, combing the contents in a way that makes the entire shebang easier.

Also in recent Dropbox news, the cloud storage company revealed in late September that it — like many other companies in recent times — had filed a request to publish the number of national security requests it has received. The information would be included on the company's transparency report, of which it has been a while since we've seen one.
