Dropbox for iOS got updated and it brings support for iPhone 5, and removes photo resolution cap. These new improvements means that there’s no black borders on your iPhone 5 screen, and photos you take will not be shrunken to iPhone 4S size, even if you took your photo with 12MP camera. iPad, iPhone and iPod now shows what ever they can handle. As there is something good for Dropbox users there must be something not so good. Photos are still compressed upon downloading and downloading takes more time now even with compressed photo. For some people new updated Dropbox is great news(iPhone 5 users), but yet if you’re hurry and need those photos not compressed, you might not be so pleased.
