Carousel is Dropbox's take on photo sharing and organization.
Dropbox has announced a new application that will go in par with its storage service. Dubbed Carousel, the app makes it easy for Dropbox users to view and manage their pictures and videos. Dropbox is basically calling it a "home for all your life's memories."
Dropbox already has a nifty timeline feature through a section called "Events." The company is now expanding the feature with Carousel, which will display a beautiful gallery of photos and videos in a timeline. This is, simply put, Dropbox's take on photo sharing and organization.
According to Dropbox, Carousel isn't limited by the available storage space on a particularly mobile device. Instead, it uses the available storage space on your Dropbox plan.
"Unlike other mobile galleries, the size of your Carousel isn’t constrained by the space on your phone, which means you can finally have your entire life’s memories in one place," the company said in a statement.
Carousel takes it further by adding sharing capabilities. The app will allows users to share photos with other people. Other users can even comment on your photos. Carousel is now available for free on the App Store and Google Play.
