dropbox-ios-7

Good news today for all of you Dropbox users. The long-awaited iOS 7 redesign for the storage service’s iPhone and iPad client appears to be nearing completion. The company snuck the above screenshots into a new blog post today.

Apparently, there are some big things brewing at Dropbox, including some big upcoming changes for its ‘Dropbox for Business’ enterprise offering. The service has been completely rebuilt for business. But anyway, about this redesign…

As you can see, the new design takes a number of cues from iOS 7—I think it looks a lot like the stock Phone app—and all of the usual elements are there. It features large white spaces, flat text and flat icons in the tabs across the bottom.

9to5Mac has picked up a few additional screenshots:

Dropbox says that the new business features will start rolling out to users later this month, so while there’s no word on when we’ll see the redesigned iOS app, it shouldn’t be too far off.

      BitTorrent Sync

      • That’s a different service, Boxie is a different client for the same service.

    Dropbox for iOS = photo upload

    I can’t wait for flat design to go stale.

      There is nothing wrong with the flat design (see the app Quiz Up for example). Developers just aren’t getting the difference between minimalism and minimal effort.

    What’s with all the white? I’m gonna get blind.

  • Prasoon Singh

    This app is too white. It hardly has any colors to it. Just black, blue, red, and white.

    • Quang

      so it has 4 colors, isn’t it? 🙂

      So just like iOS7 then..!

    im tired of this flat crap, there was nothing wrong with skeuomorphism

  • Still lacks so many file managing features; got rid of it and have been using iFile. Making it neon-blinding just makes it more repelling.

    If there aren’t any new features, I’ll probably pass on this version. I hate redesigns for no good reason.

    And that is why I will use iCarbons to make my Black and Slate iPhone 5 white and aluminum.

    • So you bought a black iPhone 5, and would rather white?
      I’m asking because I’m torn between space grey vs. silver for my upcoming 5s.

      • Decio Arruda

        White is the way to go.

      • But what about black being better for video?? Is that true?

      • Decio Arruda

        It makes a huge difference on the iPad. Bit on the iphone, although it is slightly better, it’s not a reason to persuade you to buy the black just because of it.

    I would like to turn off video upload while my photos continue to upload. There use to be a switch in the earlier version of Dropbox giving users the option to upload photo and video separately. This option was better for me, I hope they revert to this option again.

    I like the flat and minimalism, but apps are starting to look exactly the same, completely flat white with hollow blue icons. There are no redesigns going on. Just mimicry.

  • love the Dropbox
