Dropbox for iOS will create Microsoft Office files from scratch

If you've ever wanted to start a report on your iPhone and save it straight to Dropbox, you're in luck. The cloud storage outfit is rolling out an iOS update in the next few weeks that allows you to create Microsoft Office documents and save them online, not just edit them. The upgrade will also let you comment on files from the iOS app. And if you just can't wait to try something new, the latest version packs a redesigned home view that focuses on your recently opened files. There's no mention yet of corresponding Android releases, but those are undoubtedly in the pipeline.
