Dropbox debuts Carousel app for iOS and Android
Cloud storage company Dropbox has released its latest product, Carousel, a photo and video gallery app. Available for both iOS and Android platforms, Carousel provides a single location for users' photo and video content in an organized manner. The app automatically backs up photos and videos to the user's Dropbox account as they are captured, ensuring they are safe from being lost in a device crash. Users can engage in private conversations with friends, as to share their media with others. The number of photos and videos one can put in their Carousel is based on how much space they have attached to their Dropbox account, with the free storage size starting at 2GB. Carousel is free to download through iTunes and Google Play, and requires a Dropbox account to utilize its features.
