Dropbox updates Android app with Material Design
Material Design has slowly been making its way through Google’s Play Store. Since its introduction as part of the Android L developer preview at the Google I/O developers’ conference last summer, the rollout has slowly but surely been happening. Almost a year after the formal inception of Material Design standards and guidelines, the Dropbox Android Material Design update is ready to hit devices across the globe.
The new design comes as part of the v3.0.0 update, which cites the design changes as the one major focus in the update. Switching to the new design increases usability as well as the aesthetics, so it’s a win-win – if you’re on Lollipop, you’ll also be able to access the tinted status bar, thanks to the API changes in versions higher than KitKat.
If you’re interested in trying out the new app yourself, you’re not quite in luck just yet. At this time, it doesn’t look like the app is rolling out through Google Play, though that should happen very soon.
