Dropbox announces Carousel: new gallery app for sharing, organizing, and backing up photos to the cloud

Dropbox Carousel

Dropbox is on a roll. After announcing that they’ll be officially bringing Mailbox to Android devices later today, they’re also announcing their all new gallery app for Android and iOS called Carousel. Because simply dragging and dropping folders into your Dropbox account probably isn’t the best way to keep everything organized, Carousel looks to make this process easier by automatically grouping photos according to when and where they were taken.

Photos are also backed up to the cloud, stored in their full resolution, and are extremely easy to share with loved ones. There’s even a social aspect where friends and family can comment on photos that have been shared with them, or add a few photos of their own.

We have a feeling Carousel is the fruit of Dropbox’s acquisition of Snapjoy back in 2012. Dropbox says Carousel will be available later today, and we’ll be updating this post later with a Google Play link as soon as it is. Check out the launch trailer below.

Update: Link is now live.

    Tried the app, I really don’t see the point. I prefer the ‘folder’ album found in Dropbox.
