At a press event held in San Francisco this morning, Dropbox announced Carousel, a new dedicated gallery app that combines all of a user’s photos and videos from all connected devices in a single interface. Carousel will be available both as an iOS and Android app, separate from the main Dropbox client but based on the same storage space.
I’ve tried out Carousel myself and it is indeed a great app. I like that it takes over the photo backups for Dropbox, and both apps are smart enough to know which one is handling that. This is great news for people whose devices are low on storage base, but are willing to pay for Dropbox storage space in the cloud. They can remove photos from the Camera Roll while still retaining easy access to them using Carousel.
