Dropbox releases Paper in open beta

Today, Dropbox Paper finally arrives on mobile devices after almost a year since it has been introduced as a private beta. This means that users will no longer need to have an invitation to try the service either on desktop or mobile.

The app’s main vision is to bring a collaborative workplace for work teams with the help of a single document editing tool. Teams and users can work together at the same time on the same document with improved features like embedding a video, images, tables and notifications on desktop, web or on its latest mobile app. These features come as the company’s response to the early users’ useful feedback during the beta process.

“We built Dropbox Paper to help fast-moving teams create collaborative docs and share important information. It’s a big part of how we’re reimagining the way people work together.” – Christina Cacioppo, Dropbox Paper

Dropbox Paper also features task list which has an extended support on nested list to make it easier to track tasks no matter how big or small. It also uses auto formatting to simplify the presentation of program codes or scripts using code blocks.

Here is how Dropbox describes some of the ways users can keep their teams in sync with Paper:

• Brainstorming ideas. Tackle big ideas, together in the same doc, at the same time—and use more than just words by embedding videos, images, and more.
• Capturing meeting notes. Connect your Google Calendar, and Paper can create a custom notes doc for your next meeting and automatically share it with attendees.
• Creating to-do’s. Start a checklist with just a few keystrokes, and assign tasks to others by simply adding “@” and a team member’s name.

Dropbox Paper now competes with other famous collaborative document editing tool like Google Docs and Evernote. While the app is still not out of its beta stage, we could expect to see more improvements in the future updates. Below is the promotional video for Dropbox Paper.
