Dropbox has unveiled Carousel, a product to store and manage your photos and videos.
Mailbox founder Gentry Underwood showed off the service, at a launch in San Francisco.
The app which organizes photos and videos from your camera roll into an app for Android and iOS. A scroll wheel at the bottom of the app lets you move backward and forward in time with a swipe of the thumb. Dropbox says the app is “one place for all your memories.” All photos stored in the app are backed up to Dropbox.
The app enables easy sharing to your phone and email contacts. “I can send hundreds of these in like, a second,” said Gentry Underwood, co-founder of the Dropbox email service Mailbox, as he demonstrated the app onstage. While you swipe through your photos, you can drag them up into a top bar, and then send them to your contacts with a couple of taps.
Building services around the storage and sharing are one of the most reliable methods for a software company to lure and retain customers, and Dropbox which has historically positioned itself as a backup service, is taking new steps to expand the range of its photo products.
