Apps Roundup – Aug 12, 2016

Check out the new and notable apps we think you should be downloading this week.

Dropbox Paper

Price: Free • Version: 1.0.0 • Size: 55.1 MB

Download Folioscope on the App Store

Dropbox has released a collaborative note-taking tool called Notes. The launch of the app this week signifies a wider beta release – previously, it was invite only. So, what’s it for? Many people use Dropbox to store files and documents in the cloud, but Paper is a focused app for documents and notes and allowing multiple people to edit a single doc. At the moment, its collaboration features are being touted as perfect for agile businesses, but for the every day person, there’s no reason why it can’t sit alongside Google Drive, Microsoft OneNote and even Evernote (which hiked its prices recently). Need somewhere to store your notes and documents that can be accessed online? Check out Dropbox Paper.
