The team over at Dropbox are today releasing a new app that aims to be the default way to store all your photos and videos across all device. The goal is to be the home for all your life’s memories.
The app, Carousel: is a gallery for all the photos and videos from your life. It combines the photos in your Dropbox with the photos on your phone, and automatically backs up new ones as you take them. Carousel sorts all these memories by event so you can easily travel back in time to any photo from any date. And 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.
Carousel also features private conversations — as a way to relive entire events with friends and family. With Carousel, you can share hundreds of photos in the same amount of time it’d take to send just one by text. Even more, you can capture an event from every angle by saving the photos others share with you.
The release of Carousel places Dropbox in the middle of the competition between Apple and Google to be the one stop shop for all storage – See iCloud and Google Drive. We look forward to seeing more and seeing how well the app works.
