Dropbox for Android can now view PDFs in-app and find text in documents

Dropbox for Android is getting a bit more convenient today. The app has been updated with an in-app PDF viewer and the ability to search for text in documents.

The PDF viewer works even if you’re offline (as long as the file has been downloaded to your device, of course). You can also share files directly from the preview, and they’ll automatically be added to your ‘Sent files’ folder.

In-document search works for PDF, Word, and PowerPoint files to help you find exactly the information you’re looking for. The preview highlights all the places the word appears in the document.

The update is rolling out to the Play Store over the next few days.
