Dropbox’s iOS App Update Fixes A Critical Photo Sync Bug

If Google Drive’s recent price drop wasn’t enough to entice you over to the dark side, Dropbox dropped an update to its iOS client today, adding a number of improvements, including a major bug fix that addresses an issue in which Dropbox’s photo syncing ability would fall over.

Available now on the iOS App Store, the new update includes:

• Updated illustrations
• Improved SSO for Dropbox for Business users
• Fixed an issue where some photos would fail to load
• Fixed an issue where sorting by date wouldn’t group items properly
• More bug fixes and improvements

With Google Drive now costing just $1.99 a month for a 100GB plan, it’s probably tempting to switch from Dropbox to the search giant’s cloud service, but for my money, nothing beats Dropbox’s apps, service and ease of use.
