Windows Phone users now have an easier, faster way to access Dropbox from their devices.

Not long after its partnership with Microsoft, Dropbox released this week the much awaited Dropbox app for Windows Phone. Although the cloud-storage and file-sharing service has always been available to Windows Phone users via third-party apps, the official Dropbox app delivers better integration with devices and offers the same features and experience familiar to Dropbox users.

Here's what the Dropbox app for Windows Phone has to offer and how it can help your business. [24 Cloud Storage Solutions for Small Business]

Features

Dropbox for Windows Phone has all of the features Dropbox users would expect, including access to photos, documents and videos from any device; easy sharing using a simple link; and automatic backups to keep your files safe.

Additionally, Dropbox for Windows Phone offers offline access by adding files to your "Favorites" list, as well as multiaccount support, which allows users to sign in to multiple Dropbox accounts on a single device.

Windows Phone users can also access Dropbox straight from their Start screen — just pin selected folders to the Start screen for easy, convenient access, without having to open the app.

Storage

Dropbox for Windows Phone currently offers 2GB of free storage for new accounts. Users can also upgrade to Dropbox Pro, which provides 1TB of storage for $9.99 per month, or $99 per year.

A more flexible option is Dropbox for Business, which provides business users with unlimited storage and a wide range of administrative features, such as sharing control, activity monitoring, file recovery, version histories, remote wipe and the ability to transfer accounts. Dropbox for Business also includes 256-bit security and SSL encryption to keep your files safe, as well as priority email and live support.

Get Dropbox for Windows Phone

Dropbox for Windows Phone can now be downloaded for free from the Windows Phone Store, and is available to all Windows Phone 8.0, Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows tablet users.
