Dropbox and Microsoft Word apps can now share documents – iPhone J.D.

Last week, Dropbox and Microsoft updated their iOS apps to work together, and the result is really nice.  With the updated versions of the apps, it is easier than ever to take a file from Dropbox to Word and back again.

In the Dropbox app, you can now select any Word file in your Dropbox.  Then tap the edit icon, which is four over at the bottom of the screen.  In fact, when you open your first Word file after the app is updated, the Dropbox app will even give you a friendly reminder of the new feature, as shown in the picture below.  After you tap the edit icon, the Dropbox app lets you select a helper app, and for now Microsoft Word is your only option.
