Upcoming Dropbox feature won’t take up storage space on a Mac until files are actually needed

Popular cloud-storage startup Dropbox said today at the Dropbox Open London conference that it’s working to let you access your files through the Finder as you normally would, but without taking up storage space on a Mac until they’re actually needed—no matter how small your hard disk, no matter how much stuff’s in your Dropbox.

Code-named Project Infinite, the initiative will let you decide which files in your Dropbox will be instantly downloaded and which ones will be referenced.

How to save email attachments to iPhone and iPad

Want to save email attachments to your iPhone or iPad? Downloading email attachments to your iOS device is not complicated per say, but it’s not very straightforward either. In this post, we’ll show you how to save attachments from emails received via the Mail app on iPhone or iPad.

You can now attach Google Drive/Dropbox files and GIFs from Tumblr to emails in Yahoo Mail

The failing Internet pioneer Yahoo today announced a major update for its mobile email application.

Bumped to version 4.3, Yahoo Mail for iOS introduces new third-party integrations allowing you to add cloud files directly from your Google Drive or Dropbox to your messages as attachments, or add animated GIFs to your emails from Tumblr, which is another Yahoo-owned property.

The compose interface makes it easy to choose among Tumblr’s most popular GIFs of the moment, search for that perfect GIF or browse GIF categories including Love, LOL, Cute, Cheers, Fail, Happy and more. GIFs are added to your emails as attachments.

Facebook Messenger gains Dropbox integration

As Facebook continues advancing its mobile Messenger app, the company just announced in a blog post that users can now take advantage of a brand new integration to share their Dropbox files from within the mobile Messenger app.

The new feature is accessible through the More button in Messenger chats, where Dropbox is now listed as an available source. Simply tap the new icon to open the Dropbox app on your device and select cloud files that you’d like to share in a chat.

WhatsApp now lets you share media from other apps like Dropbox and Google Drive

The popular mobile messaging service WhatsApp today received a pretty cool update in the App Store which adds the ability to share photos or videos from other apps installed on your iPhone via a new option exposed after tapping the Photo/Video Library button.

In addition, WhatsApp has gained a pair of new shortcuts in the 3D Touch menu on the Home screen and now supports solid colors as chat backgrounds.

Oh, and you can now zoom in on videos while they’re playing.

Dropbox to nix Mailbox and Carousel apps early next year

Cloud storage startup Dropbox made a surprising announcement Monday, saying it will be shutting down Mailbox, the once popular app it acquired in March 2013, as well as Carousel, a photo-management app released in April 2014. Mailbox will be winding down on February 28, 2016 and Carousel is next on the chopping block on March 31, 2016.

This development doesn’t surprise me: Mailbox for iOS has been receiving only compatibility updates post-acquisition while Mailbox for Mac hasn’t dropped its beta flag since August 2014 debut of the first public beta (its current version number: 0.76).

Dropbox adds Recents view to web interface, bringing frequently accessed files in one place

Managing multiple projects in your Dropbox can be a pain when you need to quickly find that presentation you’ve been working on recently. While Dropbox’s iPhone and iPad app has had a dedicated Recents tab since May of this year, it wasn’t available through the web UI at dropbox.com.

Starting today, a Recents webpage is now available on dropbox.com so you can find what you need faster. Sadly, the Recents feature isn’t cross-platform as of yet because Dropbox for Android lacks it, but the company assures us it’s coming to that platform, too, “over the next few months”.

Dropbox update lets you save Safari pages to PDF via new App Extension

Dropbox, the cloud storage provider, has updated their iOS app with new features for App Extensions and an assortment of bug fixes. Now users who have the App Extension enabled in Safari can save webpages to PDFs and also can protect the App Extension itself with their Touch ID fingerprint.

Dropbox previously updated their app with support for iOS 9 and 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, among other new features. While you can already save a webpage to a PDF with iBooks, this is a good update for those that need access to websites later and use Dropbox on another device, such as a desktop computer.
