Dropbox 1.2, which was released on Monday, finally brings iPad compatibility to the popular file-sharing and online storage application for the iPhone. The latest version of the app is Universal, so current iPhone users can gain iPad compatibility simply by updating their existing copy of the app.

The release notes state that there is feature parity between the iPhone and iPad versions of the client and that iPad users should be able to do everything they could do with it on the iPhone. A new feature exclusive to the iPad is the ability to export PDFs and other documents from the Dropbox app into other applications. This update also adds better support for landscape orientation on the iPhone.

Dropbox is an online cloud storage and file-sharing service that provides 2GB of free space to new users and has tiered pricing for those who require more storage space. The free iPhone OS client allows users to on-the-go access to all their files stored on Dropbox's servers and share them with anyone, including people who don't use the service.

Available now on the App Store, Dropbox 1.2 is free and requires an iPad running iPhone OS 3.2 or later and an iPhone running iPhone OS 3.1 or later.
