Revolutionary file app Dropbox has proved an iOS sensation, bringing with it innovation in file sharing, backup and syncing. However the app has run into some problems of late when dealing with the iPhone 5’s larger screen.
The Dropbox app’s 1.5.6 update this week delivers support for the iPhone 5, something lacking so far. Users would find that images downloaded and viewed on iOS devices were cropped to fit the screen of the iPhone 4S. This update has removed the resolution cap, so now users can view downloaded photos in full resolution, according to the devices capability.
On investigation of the new app, its apparent that photos are still compressed upon downloading, which brings with it some color compression, and downloads now take considerably longer than before.
Have Dropbox sacrificed speed in favor of resolution? Which is more important to you?
