A new version of Dropbox' mobile client for mobile phone running under Google's Android operating system is now available for download via the Android Market.

“We just released version 1.2.4 of Dropbox for Android to the Android Market! We've added thumbnails in the file browser by popular demand, along with other new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements,” the development team notes.

The application was designed to offer users fast access to their Dropbox accounts, and to enable them access files stored in the cloud while on the go.
At the same time, the mobile application offers users the possibility to easily save files available on the mobile phone to their Dropbox accounts, and to perform a variety of other actions as well.
“Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. After you install Dropbox on your computer, any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, your Android device, and even the Dropbox website,” the company explains.
With the mobile client for Android devices, users would benefit from management of their files in the cloud straight from the phone at all times, as long as Internet connectivity is available.
As stated above, those who would like to try out the latest version of Dropbox for Android should head over to the official storefront for that. The application is available in the web Market here.
