Dropbox’s iOS 7 redesign landed today in the App Store, and it brings not only a new look to the app, but AirDrop support and a “streamlined” iPad interface. The colored top and bottom bars have been distilled to better fit the iOS aesthetic, and the white and blue colors in the app’s icon have been inverted.

Sharing files has been made easier with support for Apple’s share sheets in iOS 7. While you’ve also been able to send files to various apps and services, support for AirDrop means it is now easier to share directly between iOS 7 devices that are in close proximity. The app is generally faster and the folks at Dropbox have fixed the most common bugs that have been causing crashes and similar glitches. The PDF viewer in particular has been greatly improved.

On the iPad, navigating and viewing media like photos is easier. There are new icons for different file types, folders, etc. Overall, version 3.0 is a very solid update with numerous updates and a nice redesign. You can get the new Dropbox for free in the App Store.
