ONLINE STORAGE SERVICE Dropbox has updated its IOS application, which brings automatic photo and video uploads to Apple devices.

The update to version 1.5 offers Iphone and Ipad users the ability to automatically upload snapshots and videos to Dropbox, a feature which up until now has only been available to Android device owners.

Dropbox users can decide whether uploads are carried out over a 3G or WiFi connection, and can opt to upload their entire IOS photo library to the cloud. Doing so could earn you some additional Dropbox storage too, as the company will give users 3GB of free online storage for every 500MB of content uploaded.

Other new features include a "Gallery" section, which displays images uploaded to Dropbox in a handy photo album view. There are also options to tag favourite photos, send out a public link to an image and move and delete sets of files.

The updated Dropbox app is available to download for free from the Itunes App Store. µ
