Dropbox Paper Goes Into Open Beta, iOS And Android Apps Now Out: How To Sign Up

Close

Dropbox is getting Paper off the ground, rolling it out in open beta and releasing mobile versions of it on iOS and Android.

Just to be clear of what's up, everyone can now get their hands on the collaboration tool, and there's no need to wait for it any longer.

"We originally launched Paper to a limited number of teams in private beta. And now we're excited to open up the beta so anyone can sign up — without the waitlist. Plus, we have new Paper mobile apps for iOS and Android that you can use for on-the-go access," Dropbox says.

At first glance, Paper appears to be the company's answer to Google Docs, allowing users to work together seamlessly in the cloud too.

To be exact, participants in a document can easily add more people in the group and tag them with the @ symbol; edit texts at a tap of a button; format the content without breaking a sweat; insert images, tables and Dropbox files; embed videos from YouTube; directly create comments on it; start to-do lists and many other convenient features in a neat and almost minimalistic environment.

According to the developers, they have taken into account the feedback and experiences of early Paper users to iron out the wrinkles before launching the app in beta. With more than 1 million documents created then, they are confident that the tool is packed with features that everyone wants and, of course, virtually free of deal-breaking issues.

This goes without saying, but Paper appears to be the company's way of keeping up pace with the heated competition, as rivals such as Box, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive, to name a few, are taking significant portions of the pie in the industry.

It's also worth pointing out that Paper was announced last year, and it has been chalked up as one of the niftiest tools around.

Now, to get in on the action, interested users can go ahead and sign up at the official Dropbox Paper website. For the mobile apps, it's already up for grabs at the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
