Some three months after Microsoft first demoed Dropbox for Windows 8 at the Build conference, and the app is at last available for download from the Windows Store.

The app (free, Windows Store) launched today and allows users to browse and preview their files on Dropbox as well as open, edit and save any files coming in from other Windows 8 apps.

Users can share files, folders or photos with friends and family via email or social networks using Share Charm, or look for Dropbox files using the Search Charm.

That though is far as the useful functionality goes, with the Dropbox app currently unable to sync files locally or to upload files from a Windows 8 desktop or tablet.

Dropbox recently passed 100 million users and already has apps for iOS, Android and BlackBerry.
