Last November, Dropbox and Microsoft partnered to offer users with an easy way to save their Office documents on the cloud storage service, with Dropbox integrated within Microsoft Office apps. The integration between the two services was said to make its way to mobile apps as well, and now Dropbox for iOS users are in luck.
The cloud storage service announced that Dropbox for iOS users will be able to create Office documents from within the app. The feature will roll out for users in the next few weeks, and believe it or not, it will definitely be useful for Dropbox users as it will create the document without leaving the app and save it in the cloud for easy access. The file will be saved in the folder you were in when you created the new document.
In the next few weeks we’ll be adding the ability to create Microsoft Office docs right from the Dropbox iPhone and iPad apps, so you won’t have to wait until you’re at your computer to start a project or write down notes. The Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file you create will be saved into whatever Dropbox folder you were in when you selected ‘Create New File,’ so you’ll be able to access it on any of your other devices or on the web.
We’ll update you as soon as the feature is available for all users.
