File-syncing service Dropbox is heading for Android, and will be ready to go in the next couple of months, the company has confirmed.

Already available for your desktop and on the iPhone, the new app will open up Dropbox to a much wider mobile group for people using it on the go.

The app will work similarly to other versions of the program, in that you'll be able to view files saved or deposited in your Dropbox on your phone, including multimedia content such as music and movies.

You'll also be able to store anything from your Dropbox on your phone, as well as make edits that will be automatically synced with the version stored on Dropbox.

Android users have been able to use the Dropbox mobile web app for a while but the native app will offer much more flexibility and functionality. This includes adding Dropbox to the Android "Share Via" menu, allowing you to add content from your phone to your Dropbox much easier.

There is reportedly a BlackBerry app on the way as well, but no exact dates as to when we can expect either.

Do you use Dropbox? Will you be downloading the Android app when it lands? Let us know below.
