Dropbox is free iOS app published by Dropbox, Inc.
My use case is mostly managing music and pdfs on an iOS device, since as a Linux user apple makes that baseline literally impossible. Dropbox sort of helps with that miserable situation. But AFAICT Dropbox removed the "make available offline" feature in an update. Removing features in updates? That's terrible anti-user behavior. Other problems: doesn't seem to do incremental downloads, so is hopeless on slow or flaky networks. Interrupts downloads when you close the app. Dropbox and apple, surely you can do better.
I have had this app for a couple of years and for someone of my little knowledge of Computers and applications that you use with them this seemed to do what I needed. But now something has changed because I am getting this warning that dropbox application will no longer be of any use but I have downloaded every update and now my files will not open up and I donot know how to contact Dropbox developer to see what to do. I use all Apple products, cellphone,Ipad mini 4 and Apple Macontosh laptop computer.
There is seriously no way to manually add individual photos or videos to my Dropbox? I have to set up auto add? Seriously? What if I only need to upload 1 video and don't want to waste all day uploading the hundreds of other things I have on my device? What an absolute joke.
Dropbox is a great app to store all memories in a safe place. You will enjoy the detail in each memory is saved in addition to allowing maximum space on your phone
The current version has bugs and keeps shutting down!
My Dropbox started to not functioning.. either won’t open or not uploading my photo from camera roll anymore.
Yet you charged me for it!!
.xml files show raw code - no longer preview correctly recent update broke viewing .xml files website and app show raw code will change my rating when this is fixed
Maybe I’m missing something but the app only appears to let you share a link to a file and not the file itself. Sometimes you need to send(text, email, handoff) the actual file itself. I get that you want to share the Dropbox.com link for brand and lock-in reasons but sometimes this isn’t the best option.
The Notorious t.i.g
After the recent update, DropBox stopped working properly for camera-roll upload on my iPad. Their solution? Remove the app, forget the network, fully restart the iPad, re-connect to the network, and re-install the app. Seriously? Good thing I have nothing else to do ... oh, wait. Basement flooded. So yeah, I have something else to do that's rather urgent. Good news is that yes, this did in fact resolve the issue, but really, I have other things to do in my life than reset apps with updates that fail. Especially when paying $75/month for the business version. For $75 a month I expect a MUCH better UI, amazing support, in-file search (not just the file titles), and so much more. Instead, we get the un/re-install merry-go-round, an ok UI, low-availability support (US normal business hours only), and an amazingly klugey sync setup. Heaven help you if your Mac has an external drive. What happens when you get a new Mac? It downloads everything from Dropbox again, even though all I did was remove the USB plug from the old machine to the new. Good job, Dropbox. Well done. Now I gotta wait for 4T of data to re-synch. Their super awesome support response? Well, we told you external drives might not work as expected. I’m totally looking for another service. Seriously, $900 a year for this? I feel like an idiot for locking myself into this “service”.
