Dropbox Paper is a new service that makes it easier than ever to engage in collaborative editing. For now, the app is only web-based but is set to be offered in mobile form when the product is offered in complete form.

The Dropbox Paper service's interface shows that it is a minimalist, lightweight and easy-to-use text-editing app. However what makes this service stands out is the focus on collaborative editing. For one, it allows multiple users to access and edit the document at the same time. Much like Google Docs, each Dropbox Paper user is assigned a colored cursor, and their contributions to the file are credited.

The nature of work in the Internet area has changed, so the tools we use to work must change with us. Dropbox Paper is a simple but thoughtful service, and one that will come of use to a wide range of professionals as well as students.
