Dropbox for Windows 8 now available in the Windows Store

Dropbox Windows 8

Microsoft unveiled the Dropbox Windows 8 app back at its build developer conference in October, and now it's finally available in the Windows Store. Available for Windows 8 and Windows RT users, the app lets you open and edit files from other Windows 8 apps and share files or folders with the Share Charm.

Search Charm support is also present, but overall the app is a fairly basic one that mimics web access to Dropbox with a tiled interface to fit Windows 8's aesthetics. It's another big name for Microsoft's new Windows 8 platform, with the company hoping to attract top developer talent and apps during 2013.
