Dropbox iOS app updated to 1.5, adds photo, video

Cloud storage site Dropbox expanded its capabilities on Thursday, updating its iOS app (free) to add video and photo uploading, along with a new Gallery view that for some users may offer an alternative to the soon-to-close Mobile Me photo gallery. Users willing to test the service can earn additional free storage space, up to a limit of 3GB, and can upload from either Wi-Fi or cellular. Users can tag pictures and share them through the use of a public link as they can with other files stored on Dropbox. The new feature was previously available on the Android version of the app.

Temple Run gets 'Brave' movie tie-in version

In celebration of the forthcoming Disney-Pixar movie Brave, Imangi Studios has released a tie-in edition of its hit game app, called Temple Run: Brave ($1). The game can be played on all current iOS devices and, in keeping with the film's story about a princess who is a champion archer, adds a shooting mode that fires arrows as well as new swiping controls. The game will also be available shortly for some Android owners as well, and provides a complete re-skinning of the regular Temple Run game, which itself was inspired by another movie -- Raiders of the Lost Ark. Disney-Pixar's Brave opens June 22.

Apple updates iTunes Connect mobile app for developers

Apple has rolled out version 2.0 of its iTunes Connect mobile app (free), a tool that allows developers to monitor sales stats, region breakdowns, view reviews and ratings from buyers and even release approved app version updates. The new version offers a number of features, including better product detail views, the ability to self-reject apps submitted for review, and a new advanced search feature. When used on an iPad, developers can see both titles and sales, or trends and customer reviews grouped together for analysis.

    Might want to avoid 1.5

    I, like a lot of Dropbox users, am unable to open Dropbox 1.5 on my iPhone 4s or iPad 3. It crashes every time I enter my security number. iTunes' App Store review has multiple postings on this as well.

    Til further notice or update, I'd stay away from Dropbox 1.5 for iOS.
