Dropbox is perhaps the most popular cloud storage platform for consumers, but hopes to grow a bit more. Following a pending overhaul of its user tools, Dropbox will add more complex editing tools in addition to the tool already provided with the Secondary Paper Document Services.
The new editing and collaboration tools will be dropped on November 1
Other new tools available through Dropbox Extensions include editing PDFs with Nitro, AirSlate, and SmallPDF, as well as editing DWG files via Autodesk and AutoCAD, sending electronic signature files through Adobe Sign and other services, sending faxes with HelloFax, and commenting on Vimeo video projects. All of these features can be executed through Dropbox's web and app interfaces; no additional programs are required.
What specific tools are available in which versions of the Dropbox app have not been addressed – it is expected that not every single service will provide you with access to the Dropbox API (such as Office 365) to perform any new actions without starting a browser. For those who spend a lot of time on Dropbox's web or mobile apps, these new tools should greatly increase speed and efficiency. Dropbox says that more extensions will be announced in the future.
