File renaming: Simple as it sounds – files and folders can now be renamed.

Ice Cream Sandwich support: Optimized for the newest and tastiest Android release yet: Ice Cream Sandwich.

Single-tap access to actions: All file and folder actions are available from a single tap.

    The new features are unfortunately drowned by the rash of annoying downgrades that are also implemented! The biggest problem is the change in local storage location… it’s now buried deep in the filesystem. There are many other problems also… the market reviews say it all!! Don’t recommend updating to version 2 unless the previous version .apk is available in case a roll-back is needed! Surprising for Dropbox, which is normally unbelievably excellent.

    Just to mention, ES File Explorer support Dropbox as well.
    However, i had both installed.
