The latest Dropbox app update for Android gives users the ability to save files onto an SD card. Previously, users had to download files to their phone or tablet’s onboard storage and then use a file manager to transfer it to the external storage. Android users with SD card-equipped devices will find the option under the export menu. If you’re having trouble, the “display advanced devices” option in the settings menu should help. As cheap Android phones are increasingly coming with minimal onboard storage and an SD card slot, it would be nice to see more apps fully support expandable storage on Android.

  1. That is convenient, except with KitKat Google removed the ability of applications to write to the SD card. DropBox is late to the party.

    I hope Google backtracks this absolutely stupid restriction soon.
