its mobile website a significant facelift. The new site, which was designed by one of the company's interns, now looks and feels more like a native mobile application.Dropbox, darling of the cloud-powered file-sharing space, has given
The new mobile-optimized layout is very similar to that of Dropbox's native apps for iOS and Android, except that it of course works across platforms, including Windows Phone 7, Android and iPhone. It displays nicely on the iPad as well, but doesn't quite compare to Dropbox's native iPad app, which is specifically optimized for the tablet.
This is the first time in three years that the Dropbox mobile site has had a visual refresh, and they've taken the opportunity to add a few new features. For one, you can now search your files from the mobile interface, as well as do things like share and delete files.
The team plans on working in support for more devices, the ability to manage referrals and various enhancements to file sharing and management.
Dropbox is known to get the most out of their interns, who operate much like full-time team members and are allowed to work on any project they choose. This has recently included things like redesigning their Android app (coming soon), coding signficiant upgrades to the product's iOS apps and, in one case, creating a code obfuscator "to help make sure Dropbox's secret sauce stays secret."
