Dropbox for Android 1.1 Update: Lock Code Added, Works Better on Honeycomb Tablets

Dropbox is, in my opinion, the first personal cloud file sharing app that actually works the way most people want to work. If you haven’t tried it yet, you probably should at least evaluate it to see if it fits your workflow. The 2GB storage level is free and easier than carrying a thumb drive. If you use Dropbox and have an Android device, you’ll be pleased to learn that the 1.1 update for the Dropbox Android app is available.

Dropbox for Android 1.1

It provides three main enhancements:

1. Protect your Dropbox with a lock code
2. French, Spanish, German, Japanese langauge support
3. Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet compatibility fixes

You can get an idea of how the new lock code feature works by looking at the screenshot here. And, if you have a Motorola Xoom or plan to buy a T-Mobile (LG) G-Slate, enhancement #3 has your name on it.
