This thing is a piece of crap I hate it
I love Dropbox!! >w<
Okay, I do admit, I only use Dropbox for music, but it’s still useful!
Alright, so the problem that I was having was downloading music. I have an IPhone 7 and I couldn’t download music instantly like on an Android, so I used Dropbox as a folder for music, and it works! Now I can edit music into videos without problems! So, thanks for making this app, Dropbox creators! ^^
Another Great Service destroyed by APP
By Ti leaf
The app is worse than useless. I used it last year quite successfully. This year I started using the camera upload feature. Now it won’t let me access the MANY MANY document files that are stored them. From vital legal documents (for hurricane/disaster protection), to articles, and other documents.
I am a writer and journalist, and I travel. I have been using Apple products since 1989, and have migrated to the newer IPad Pro, for travel.
Dropbox has become a monster dead pool of data. I will likely delete everything. Dump the app. Deal with it on desktop.
Move to another cloud service, like Amazon.
Sickened to have just paid $450 for a business account only to have it wreck my administrative systems, just as I begin another trip and will be away from home.
Another gets deleted
By Version 2.2.8
Just got the notification that I can only have three devices or I have to pay. Nice advance notice. It will take me a day to move everything, but I will. See ya
Like it, BUT....
I remember when bought my galaxy S3, wow...in doing so; received 100GB of free Dropbox space for 2 yrs. Was some kind of promotion for buying a Samsung Galaxy phone. Than I referred like 5 ppl, so received like an extra few GB. In all, I had around 105GB of space(or there abouts). Was awesome, had 5 devices connected & uploading all camera rolls/vids to a backup folder. Super handy, & used my Dropbox ALL the time. Then I get an email 1-2 mos before “honeymoon” was over saying my Dropbox storage is over the 15GB of space allotted to me. Than I find out that instead if 15GB of free space, they changed it to 5GB of free space, unless wanted to buy additional storage (& a tiered subscription every mo/yr). Kinda sucked having to copy 80GB of storage to external drive & took forever. I’m okay with Dropbox now & storage, as I have things managed & under control. Can only connect 2 devices now....kinda crappy, but dem da rules, w/ the continued 5GB of free space. Don’t mind all this, truly...I’m living w/ it. WHAT I HATE, is the UPDATES! Why? Thanks for asking. Here’s why(take good note Dropbox & other Devs/ppl): IT’S B/C YOU DONT LIST EXACTLY WHAT YOU’RE UPDATING OR DOING WITH THE APP, INFO, DATA, ETC... INSTEAD, YOU GIVE A CUTESY STATEMENT LIKE NETFLIX ET AL...OF TAKING OUT TRASH, KOW8NG THE LAWN, TWEAKING THIS/THAT....IMPROVING THINGS FOR US, & REGULARLY RELEASING NEW UPDATES WEEKLY TO JUST “TWEAK” AGAIN THE PREVIOUS WEEKS UPDATES!
IF YOU & OTHERS WOULD TELL US WHAT YOUR DOING, IT WOULD SOLVE SO MANY ISSUES. IT WOULD ALLOW PPL A CHOICE WEATHER TO UPDATE OR NOT, MAYBE UPDATING WILL PREVENT APP FROM WORKING ON THEIR VERSION OF PHONE/OS(WHICH HAS HAPPENED MORE TIMES THAN CAN COUNT FOR ME/FAM/FRIENDS OF OTHER APPS ETC....), OR THEY DONT HAVE STORAGE SPACE & “CANT” UPDATE” BUT ARE WORRIED OF SECURITY PATCHES(& IF NO SEC PATCHES INCLUDED IN THIS PARTICULAR VERSION UPDATE, THEY DONT NEED TO WORRY...OR WORSE, DELETE APP CUZ DONT WANNA LOSE, COSTING YOU A CUSTOMER), THAT MIGHT NOT BE NEEDED IF NO PATCH INCLUDED ETC....
So please, real the mold....be bold, brave, & tell us what your changing/updating in the new versions of every update. Transparency goes a long way ya know, especially when we are trusting you with our data......just sayin’ ya know. Most Apps do list what’s new in the updates, heck....Apple does it, on their OS updates! Think about those apples......
Besides this, I like Dropbox & use it daily, but not “knowing” what I’m updating or allowing...is uncool & why a rarely update my App. The only reason I do update it, I MUST so it will continue working on my devices, otherwise, I don’t update any app that doesn’t list the new changes etc....ANY APP!
Strange thing is, thought Apple required Devs to divulge to ppl what was being updated & why in the descriptions of every update &/or new install of an app/product; so then, why isn’t COs’ doing this then....Hmm...
My score 3/5 b/c of lack of transparency in updates etc...FIX that & I’ll redo rating. Cheers y’all
Attach a file
I used to be able to attach pdf docs from Dropbox to an email and ever since I updated the app, that feature stopped working. What happened?
Not Paying? Expect Limitations!
Not paying? Expect issues at one point.
Cannot use this garbage anymore. It asked me to unlink 38 devices but I only have 4 devices linked. Try other free cloud services ..... Dropbox is dying.
Best investment in myself ever.
I'm into Dev and Tech of all sorts. I'm self taught and have been obsessed since elementary school. I got banned from using school computers in middle school I believe. Took the final exams for computer science and built a computer from the ground up my freshmen year. So needless to say I'm doing something right. Here's the catch. I'm very odd and ADD. Trying to pick up where I left off on code lines saving tidbits, thoughts, emailing myself and using every free image and file hoster I could get hands-on. I ever have two 1Tb hard drives in my mx14 Alien. It was a cluster of coding, open sources, project's, notes, reminders, you name it. No space to run programs at their full potential. I turned away after my free trial in HS. BUT after giving it another go and storing literally my life in your Application not knowing if I'd regret it forever if it didn't save everything. It syncs, it edits,it's organized and I have another 1tb of anything I need on the go. DropBox is perfect in every way for me and I'm obsessed.
Thanks for making my passion less of a struggle to maintain and build upon.

Why so expensive monthly. I don’t want join it. I already clean up all my pictures gone from Dropbox. I’m not interested it.
