Dropbox - Backup, Sync, Share
Description
Dropbox lets anyone upload and transfer files to the cloud, and share them with anyone. Back up and sync docs, photos, videos, and other files to cloud storage and access them from any device, no matter where you are. And with advanced sharing features, it’s easy to share docs and send files—large or small—to family, friends, and co-workers. Features: • Automatically upload videos and photos from your camera roll to cloud photo storage—all in the background—for easy video sharing and photo sharing. • Access any file in your account—even offline—and preview over 175 different file types with no special software required. • Easily send large files by copying and pasting a link you can give to anyone, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. • Scan documents, receipts, IDs, photos, and more using your mobile device and transform them into high-quality PDFs, so you can view and send anywhere. • Sync folders on your PC or Mac to Dropbox with computer backup, and recover older versions or restore deleted files with version history and file recovery. Sign up now for your free Dropbox Plus trial. You’ll get 2 TB (2,000 GB) of storage space—that’s enough room to save files from all your linked devices. We’ve also introduced some new features as part of your Plus plan: Dropbox Passwords to store and sync passwords across all your devices and Dropbox Vault to secure and organize your most sensitive documents. And with Dropbox Rewind, you can roll back any file, folder, or your entire account, up to 30 days. Existing Plus customers can upgrade to Dropbox Professional. With 3 TB (3,000GB), you can store all your stuff—from work projects to personal photos—and have space to spare. You and your clients can comment on most file types without leaving Dropbox. And you can protect your work with a watermark, add shared link controls, or rewind your account up to 180 days. Before starting a trial or completing payment, you’ll see the plan price.

Your account will charged for renewal 24 hours before the end of your current billing period. To avoid auto-renewal, turn it off in at least 24 hours before your subscription renews.

I can’t log into my account. I’ve changed my password but I don’t have my old phone or number anymore, because of that I can’t get the pin/code that was sent. I change my number a couple of years ago can I have some help please I tried asking online chat now I’m trying on the app. Help please
Same problem as last update. Corrupted Photos 05/05/21
by Blitz7287 on 2021/05/05 12:02
The previous update broke the app for it. It's constantly corrupting images as they are being uploaded from an iPhone 11 on the latest public update. I'm on a business plan using it for my business and it's hampering my ability. Currently testing out other options.
Won’t let me go!!!
by thickobviously on 2021/05/04 10:27
A great app until you want to leave. I still pay £9.99 monthly for the upgrade because I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET IT OFF MY PHONE. NO HELP AVAILABLE. BEWARE!!!

Great storage and retrieval
Simple to use file storage
by Strongmoon on 2021/04/29 20:13
Dropbox has always worked seamlessly for me however since latest iOS update 14.5 the scanner function causes the app to crash (impossible to use this function now). I’m using iPhone 7.
Can’t save files from emails
by Hatticus on 2021/04/18 20:25
Trying to save PDFs from emails to Dropbox, and it just doesn’t work. It just wants me to send them to someone.
Great but has limits
by Rasheef on 2021/04/17 15:36
It’s a fantastic app, truly, I use it a lot. But it seems to lack some polish when integrating with iOS, and just support for modern video standards. My main gripe is you can’t export Live photos from iPhone, something Apple have supported for years there’s not really a good reason for not being able to export the mov file associated with Live photos. It means you still have to sync to a Mac and then export to Dropbox if you want to retain them, a major additional faff. Also the lack of support for HDR video previews is a little baffling, HDR has not really snuck up on us, it’s been coming for a long time. I’d like to be able to watch HDR without then looking like a washed out mess please.
HSBC Business API doesn’t work
by ADLC999 on 2021/04/16 11:20
I can access my HSBC personal accounts but not my business account despite being given the option.
Frustrating!
by Happy Being a teacher on 2021/04/15 11:26
I find Dropbox impossible to use, all I want to do is add new photos to my existing photos on my phone and iPad.
Great, expensive tho, customer support not top notch l!
by GreekNiko on 2021/04/13 19:57
When it works this is very good & deserves its place as one of the market leaders, but it’s not the most generous with free space & if you pay for more space (as I do) it’s not the cheapest out there by a long shot! However, if you happen to encounter a problem I’m afraid you’re on your own, the community support is flakey with not many hits & little advice useful advice IMHO, emailing customer support is not particularly speedy & takes time to get to heart of the problem! Also, most importantly, don’t develop a problem out of ‘office hours’ or at the weekend! All cloud based services like Dropbox will encounter a problem at one time or another, so customer support for a big potential standard setter (like Dropbox would probably like to think it is) should have 24/7 help available, especially for the high subs it asks for! Otherwise I guess it’s as good as anything else around!
Dropbox Review

A very useful ‘app’.
Export
by Indomitable26 on 2021/04/08 20:02
This was great but the latest update has removed Export! I can no long export photos to my iPad and iPhone. Why has this been removed?
The last software update just deleted +5,000 files I had on the cloud
by CallMeUnique on 2021/04/04 08:32
I know Dropbox will say that they can’t delete files for you but in no way did I delete over 5,000 files in 5seconds on my own. Even worst that everytime I restored them it would re-delete. No I've not been hacked. No I’ve not had anyone else on my account No these weren’t shared folders. ALL OF MY STUFF JUST WENT! I’m switching to google drive. I can’t trust any app that has this crazy amount of issues and when you go to the community page and read the comments TONNES of the people have had the same exact issue!

Saving my files
by Chrissday on 2021/03/26 11:52
Well its been real handy for me to move files from the ipad to my main computer for further processing. Nice and smooth.
The best invention ever.

Always accessible anywhere in the world with enough storage space for most things.
Frustrating
by Every nickname's been taken on 2021/03/22 09:27
I can’t delete videos from Dropbox. I’ve tried everything. Unusable. All I can do is delete the app unless I can get some help.
Only one overpriced storage scheme
by mcka98 on 2021/03/16 22:29
Just scoped out all the main photo backup apps as my 0365 subscription expired and my OneDrive storage shrank. My main archive is about 350 GIG so 500 GIG would be perfect. Dropbox only offers 2 terabytes for £9.99 a month which is way over what I need price and capacity wise. If only there was a 500 GIG storage option for £2.50... Are you reading this Dropbox people!!?. It’s actually far cheaper for me to go back to 0365 for £5.99 a month which gives me all the office apps/bells and whistles AND 5 terabytes of storage for my files and pictures. Can’t believe I’m bigging up Microsoft but you get a lot more for your money with them 😂
Poor and not well coded
by dave_bass5 on 2021/03/13 14:56
Too many issues to mention, mostly small issues, but the ability to play an audio file for a a bit and then go back later gives me either nothing, as in it’s all working other than actually playing, or issue accessing the file Restarting the app works so there are no issues with connection etc.

Love drop box
by lewhouston on 2021/03/01 21:14
I use drop box to learn voice tracks for my choir. It’s just fab - so easy to share music and learn individual voice parts. We can add our own tracks or use commercial recordings.
Wasted time

Accessing files
by UX Designer123 on 2021/02/18 22:42
Giving this a 1 star review because I think it’s ridiculous that I have to download the Dropbox app and create an account to simply access a file from a link someone has sent me. Awful UX. This never used to be the case.
Why would you use this!?
by P. Roka on 2021/02/18 11:46
Just don’t even begin using it, both apple icloud and Google drive are just far better and chipper. Also fed up of Dropbox asking for upgrades and money every time I just want to open my bloody document!
Impossible to cancel

5 star app

5 star app - clean UI, privacy focussed. Big fan of Dropbox Paper, would love to see more products like this 🙌
Still no multiple instances on iPadOS
by Hope1000 on 2021/02/09 21:26
Come on Still no multiple instances on iPad OS. This key productivity app still doesn’t have multiple instances on iPad OS. This would allow 2 dropbox windows side by side and be a huge productivity benefit. Come on Dropbox!
Terrible

Had to turn off integration with Files app as drains the battery
Dropbox app(latest)
by snnib on 2021/02/09 12:04
Get the new app-says Dropbox. And, goes on to extoll the virtues of their latest product. 'Fine' says I, and proceeds to download it. Only to be informed that my device,an I-pad Is not compatible. So the new app is useless to me. As is Dropbox, as the app I have no longer works. How wonderful is Dropbox?
Good but....
by PlatnumK on 2021/02/09 00:06
I use this all the time but the iPad widget doesn’t work
Sells your data

One of the best cloud storage around and most importantly, It is user friendly, safe and secure. I would not be without it!

Order ,clarity and flexibility. Great.
Awful experience
by Needs updates. on 2021/02/01 01:01
Have been paying for Dropbox for a couple years now, it’s been quite good. Suddenly I’m locked out of my account and after 40+ times I’ve contacted them I’ve had 0 support (email Twitter Facebook insta etc). Wouldn’t touch them again, better use google drive!
Useless
by 5653264 on 2021/01/30 04:26
New to dropbox. Very difficult to use. Icons make no sense. Very disappointed. “Help” section very poor.
Love DropBox
by Jason1013pantone on 2021/01/28 17:02
Great application, I think this is my first App Store review! Dropbox deserve a mention. I use this app every day. The features are well thought out and implemented well. Keep up the great work.
A-MA-ZING DAHLING
by Bookworm123769 on 2021/01/27 21:36
this app is super I needed an app that could control the speed of the music and I downloaded basically all the Apps on App Store until I find this one and I’m so glad I found this one because it is the best app ever just yesterday I was in my flute lesson and I use the app and it helped me so much you really get this up and if you don’t have iTunes music it is okay because you can get this app called dropbox and if you have the music on a link on WhatsApp maybe you can screen record you playing the music on the link or video and then you can see if that screen record go onto dropbox create your own folder and add a photo and then you select the video of the music and then that’s on you for doing the go back onto this app and go onto open and then go on to add music go onto dropbox and then you can choose the folder they created and then the songs that you put into that folder will be there I TOTALLY recommend this app :)
Great way to keep files
by AnthonycjRead on 2021/01/26 13:27
Been using this for a long time great
Awful experience
by Jaaaal on 2021/01/24 15:01
I recorded a video 14.5 minutes long of course it won’t send through normal channels so I thought great drop box option. Downloaded the app because it said it was better. I’ve signed up for a 30day free trial to even use, I’ve spent 1 hour 40 minutes uploading this video to it to send for the recipient to not even be able to view it without signing up themselves for the same trial. I am fuming. Absolute waste of time and will be cancelling and never using again. Next step going to try Google drive and hopefully that won’t let me down.
Used to love this app
by landm1980 on 2021/01/21 23:29
This used to be my go to app for cloud storage. That was until several years of photos were lost because I hadn’t been using it apparently -despite uploading on a regular basis. I now use google drive for general storage and OneDrive as my go to for anything important, I get a decent terabyte of storage on OneDrive and pay about £2 a month. In terms of customer service, Dropbox tried to explain it was my fault not theirs.

Don’t have an account
by harleenquinzel98 on 2021/01/04 14:28
I got rid of my Dropbox account however have been charged twice now for a subscription I am not part of. The first time I let it slide because I still had a login even though I wasn’t a plus member. I then deleted my account and I’m still getting charged. I’ve now paid £18.98 toward this and don’t even have an account.
Preview this folder doesn’t work
by artfuljames on 2021/01/03 15:25
When you tap “preview this folder” it doesn’t work, meaning you cannot see previews of shared folders without buying more space.
It’s gotten worse
by Wesley Riot on 2020/12/30 14:50
Can’t seem to move files in or out of Dropbox using iOS files app any more. When trying to upload files to Dropbox using the app, it either won’t show all files or won’t let me select them. Doesn’t help that the UI is confusing and poorly laid out
Account restriction work around
by Microsoft dont like apple on 2020/12/15 06:48
The app was updated a while back to restrict the number of devices that can be connected to an account. Probably because quite a few people have a large chunk of free storage which they share across a number of devices which brings little or no revenue into Dropbox. The work around is to create a shared folder and create a second account. Log some of your devices into this second account. You are then back to sharing the data across 6 devices. Create a 3rd account and this gives you 9 devices and so on. If you have buckets of data this won’t work but 2GB is quite a sizeable chunk to share. For archive info use One Drive or some other slower package and keep Dropbox for the current on the fly info you need. It can be a bit of a faf to set up but it keeps it free to users. If you need access to lots of large data over the web consider using something like Western Digital Cloud. There is an initial outlay but the data is stored in a known location - your home. It can be configured to auto backup you PC and give remote access to all of your files. You could also share the space with your friends and everyone wins.
Perfect, but
by omxs on 2020/12/14 06:39
Just wondering why - when you load an app for the very first time, you see a couple of huge buttons suggesting you to sign up, and there a tiny little one at the bottom that goes to sign in?
Poor scrolling
by CHECKPRIME on 2020/12/09 18:50
Please, please, please redesign the scrollbar. It’s impossible to use on an iPhone 11. That tiny little round excuse of a bar is so hard to press and drag. Also, why the hell do I need to log-in via a built-in browser when trying to submit feedback on your app. Please do put some more effort in the ux to make a full app instead of having vital sections like feedback loading in a browser. Thank you
No longer able to upload photos
by Dirt bike boy on 2020/11/26 20:28
Have used this app for years and love it, it’s the only place I have found that I am able to keep all my past pictures in one place through various phone changes. Disappointingly, when trying to upload pictures recently I am met with an ‘unknown error’ app has been updated but still no joy - fix please??
Great product but.....
by Tomcatuk on 2020/11/26 17:33

Rubbish
by Allnicknamesaretakenagaim on 2020/11/24 20:12
Spend a whole day trying to upload one video. Why would I pay £10 a month for something that is so slow to load files? Nonsense!
Used to be 5 star before update
by Marcovanbaston on 2020/11/16 15:39
The new update is terrible. Trying to upload photos has become confusing.
Love this app
by ILlolsurupurise on 2020/11/13 18:56
I love this app because since lockdown because of Covid-19 I’ve been using as my piano app for uploading things from zoom/Skype to here and since I’ve got my grade 1 I use it to upload videos and my piano teacher comments back thanks whoever made it and bye!
Has stopped working with Shortcuts - again
by AlanWestwood on 2020/11/12 00:38
Most of the time I find Dropbox very useful, but everytime there’s a major iOS/iPadOS upgrade it fails to work with the Apple Shortcuts app. I’m not sure whether the solution lies with Apple or Dropbox, but either way I have to stop using Dropbox until its fixed - the tasks I use it for are simple single clicks with Shortcuts, but tedious done manually. This time, even with release 14.2, this problem has still not been fixed.
Great app!
by Fomoore on 2020/11/04 09:54

I’ve been using Dropbox for several years now and am more than happy with the convenience it provides. In terms of security, versatility and ease of use, I also can manage my media, work and personal artefacts with confidence... I wish I’d thought of the Dropbox idea!.. Robert AWERE - Author/Publisher
Appalling support
by IK1047 on 2020/10/24 15:44
Good when it works but file transfer stopped working for me and support was rude and unhelpful. Anything that needs so much time to tweak and reset your computer settings (still without success) is best avoided. Support won’t lift a finger without a ‘screencast’....

Select All on iPad

Not great
by obliss1 on 2020/10/14 17:31
pros: - looks good - updates frequently reliably cons: - awful functioning on the files app. - no multitasking/ split screen - frequently struggles to rename or move folders despite strong internet connection - native apps such as numbers, pages documents simply can’t be used without duplicate copies made. Therefore limited to use microsoft excel and word :( This has been a problem for years, with no apparent changes being made by the developers. - v expensive compared to alternatives
Battery Drain on IPad

by Nickiham on 2020/10/04 08:44
But I can’t so every Mb used on my Dropbox is a Mb used on every members of that folder’s Dropbox. If I delete on my Dropbox I delete on everyone’s Dropbox. I don’t like this restriction so I don’t really use Dropbox. Not worth it
It’s good

App OK but not compatible
by Catfish_Spoonbender on 2020/09/17 14:06
The app itself has always worked fine, but I can’t rate it any higher than two stars because the browser version- on my tablet at least- is so slow as to be unusable. It’s not my browser/tablet as this is the only website I have a speed problem with. Two test runs to access two different files took more than half an hour (and I still can only open them on the screen, not download!). If you only want to use the app it’s ok, but if you ever want to be able to access your files from any device that doesn’t have it, I strongly suggest another cloud storage provider.
Great App... but...
by alun101_uk on 2020/09/16 22:01
Been using Dropbox since the beginning and can’t fault the app, however, now I’m restricted to 3 devices only (I used 5 with my band) I need to upgrade. The price plans are still too much though. I’m not fussed about getting 2Tb of storage, more than happy with 8Gb as I use iCloud for most other things. If DB offered a monthly price of <£5 just for adding more users, that would be great, but £7.99 is just too much... hence not 5* review.

Amazing app but the fee
by Kamzeh on 2020/09/14 12:05
I love love this app, one of the easiest storage apps but my goodness the fee. You only get 2GB for free which is too little for most people but then if you want to subscribe the only option is to get 1TB. Realistically no ones going to use up that much space straight away. I’ve had my paid account for about 2y? now and I’m not even half way (just checked and I’ve used up 7.5% of my paid storage, 7.5!!) it would have been logical to have different paid options so everyone can choose what suits them best. If you need more storage down the line you just get a more expensive option. I’ve contacted the CS numerous times regarding this but they just say we don’t have another option for now so it’s no help. Once I clean up my phone and back up all my photos onto my laptop I will be unsubscribing unfortunately and only use the free option if I need it.
Not really a cloud solutions is it?
by daimosmj on 2020/09/07 07:41
What is the point of this app if you cannot manage how much space it should take from your device? I cannot currently upload any files do Dropbox via app as I am getting error message that there is no space on my iPad. That is because Dropbox app is taking 45GB on iPad. So what is the purpose of this app then?!
Dreadful
by Daayve on 2020/08/31 08:09
What has happened to this software. It’s lost the intuitive design and functionality. Use to love it and now the most frustrating app out there
Useless
by BradleyPeck on 2020/08/30 14:56
Keeps saying my internet connection dropped yet all my apps work fine except dropbox. Useless app. Avoid!!
large uploads very inefficient
by Chaoticjohn on 2020/08/30 04:31
i generally have a good experience with dropbox which supplants a lot of the inadequacies of the ipad operating system. but i’ve found that large uploads take an extremely long time. i suspect there’s a problem in breaking files down. currently uploading a single 2.5gb file and it has taken +12 hours to get to not even get to 90%. i understand download and upload connections are optimised differently by infrastructure but this looks more like a problem in the app. the app runs extremely sluggishly in this time and like it’s consumed the device’s entire memory. i’m on ipad pro and i expect better. as i say generally very good. the upload handling though seems like it needs attention.
Handy

Beware
by CrudBox on 2020/08/25 20:10
This app has completely failed to deliver the file sharing capability I was looking for. I recommend shopping around.
STOP APP FROM SLEEPING

Take care, you may be paying twice!
by Markw57 on 2020/08/21 19:29
I am a long time Dropbox user with a Dropbox professional account. I used this app to connect to my existing Dropbox account. No problem with that, that is how you would expect to use it. However several years later, I have just found out I am paying twice for it. Apple has placed a subscription in my iTunes account. No idea how it got there. I have been paying around £10 per month for the privilege of connecting to my Dropbox Professional account which I am paying £199 a year for. I have never taken out another account, why would I? My account is directly with Dropbox. I don’t recall any messages in the app saying a subscription would be applied either. So take care with this app and check your subscriptions from time to time. The app works fine, just not at all happy about this scam.
Destroys battery life
by Just another SteveO on 2020/08/19 20:12
I was seriously about to return my iPad Pro for very poor battery life - it was dropping 40% or more overnight and normal usage during the day saw a terrible drop in battery life. Checked the battery in settings and found the culprit was the Dropbox app. Running in the background for up to 40 minutes every hour. Checked on Dropbox forum, not alone, others are seeing the same thing. Others also reported that turning off the background refresh didn’t solve the problem; deleting it however..... So, deleted app and so far, battery life normal. Needs sorting out - or just forget Dropbox, plenty of other providers available.
Lost it’s focus, now too expensive
by theNightCoder on 2020/08/16 08:43
I used Dropbox for many years on a pro subscription and while it is still arguably the best cross platform cloud storage, they have been using newly added features that nobody really wants as justification to increase the price. I don’t want or need a Dropbox password manager or Dropbox office suite. Dropbox used to do simple cloud storage so well at a fair price but now no longer does.
slow
by crogglyjo on 2020/08/14 09:01
so slow it takes hours to upload
Why won’t it save any videos
by Wonga dog on 2020/08/05 19:12
It says sorry this type of video can’t be exported. Don’t waste your time by signing up and downloading
issues
by SiLΞNT_ on 2020/07/30 10:07
I am usually happy with DropBox but it urgently requires an update. Since IOS13 it’s a pain to scroll trough excel files as I am always getting stuck when trying to scroll from one side one tho the other. Sideways, up or down any direction same.....please update!!!
Stuck/won’t update
by Chico Cheb on 2020/07/30 09:02
Last 2 weeks this app has tried to update but just gets stuck. Spinning loading icon, but never updates. Have been using this for years with no problems but just recently seems too keep sticking on update. Other than that the app still works fine.
A dependable resource

Good but really drains the battery

Reading a PDF on my iPhone 11 using this app really drains the battery fast.
Poor
by Big Broph on 2020/07/12 18:31
I have paid for a manual, and it is not coming up on my phone although I’m instructed to download this app to view it. Not very user friendly
Improved by half-wits
by Nkersov on 2020/07/11 08:04
The latest update makes it impossible to name new folders at the time of creation, and tells me that moving files between folders has failed... when I can see the files in place. The app used to be essential, but keeps getting worse, adding stuff that nobody asked for, and taking away features that were of benefit. Such as serving HTML pages. Nic

Continually fails to connect to server
by Deephorse on 2020/07/09 05:34
I've had the Dropbox app on my ipad for several years now, but hardly ever use it. I was recently sent a Dropbox link to download some files that I had purchased. It took me a while to work out hw to do this because information on how to use the app is non-existant. Once I knew what I was supposed to do the next issue was that the app continually failed to link to the server. I finally found a workaround and had to use it after each file download. It will be a while before I ever use Dropbox again.
Amazing tool day in day out....
by Guttibh on 2018/05/29 08:37
I joined Dropbox 9 years ago and since then I use it on daily basis. I am a big fan... the app is very easy to use, convenient to keep those receipts I can’t throw away. Sharing files with my friends is easy and they can also have a copy of “that” special picture I took. Mum has access to my pictures and from abroad (15k miles away) she can check them out at anytime and see her grandchildren growing up at fast pace. Its reliable and secure! I trust my files are safe and at my fingertip at anytime! Thank you the developers for coming out with this great tool!!
A-MA-ZING DAHLING
by Bookworm123769 on 2021/01/27 21:36
this app is super I needed an app that could control the speed of the music and I downloaded basically all the Apps on App Store until I find this one and I’m so glad I found this one because it is the best app ever just yesterday I was in my flute lesson and I use the app and it helped me so much you really get this up and if you don’t have iTunes music it is okay because you can get this app called dropbox and if you have the music on a link on WhatsApp maybe you can screen record you playing the music on the link or video and then you can see if that screen record go onto dropbox create your own folder and add a photo and then you select the video of the music and then that’s on you for doing the go back onto this app and go onto open and then go on to add music go onto dropbox and then you can choose the folder they created and then the songs that you put into that folder will be there I TOTALLY recommend this app :)
Great, expensive tho, customer support not top notch l!
by GreekNiko on 2021/04/13 19:57
When it works this is very good & deserves its place as one of the market leaders, but it’s not the most generous with free space & if you pay for more space (as I do) it’s not the cheapest out there by a long shot! However, if you happen to encounter a problem I’m afraid you’re on your own, the community support is flakey with not many hits & little advice useful advice IMHO, emailing customer support is not particularly speedy & takes time to get to heart of the problem! Also, most importantly, don’t develop a problem out of ‘office hours’ or at the weekend! All cloud based services like Dropbox will encounter a problem at one time or another, so customer support for a big potential standard setter (like Dropbox would probably like to think it is) should have 24/7 help available, especially for the high subs it asks for! Otherwise I guess it’s as good as anything else around!

Account restriction work around
by Microsoft dont like apple on 2020/12/15 06:48
The app was updated a while back to restrict the number of devices that can be connected to an account. Probably because quite a few people have a large chunk of free storage which they share across a number of devices which brings little or no revenue into Dropbox. The work around is to create a shared folder and create a second account. Log some of your devices into this second account. You are then back to sharing the data across 6 devices. Create a 3rd account and this gives you 9 devices and so on. If you have buckets of data this won’t work but 2GB is quite a sizeable chunk to share. For archive info use One Drive or some other slower package and keep Dropbox for the current on the fly info you need. It can be a bit of a faf to set up but it keeps it free to users. If you need access to lots of large data over the web consider using something like Western Digital Cloud. There is an initial outlay but the data is stored in a known location - your home. It can be configured to auto backup you PC and give remote access to all of your files. You could also share the space with your friends and everyone wins.
Life saver
by JoeLeese on 2020/03/06 19:55
I very rarely write reviews, but Dropbox has earned 5 stars from me more than once. Absolute life saver, I pay for business storage and have never regretted it once. It’s saved me after tipping water on my laptop on client deadline day, and from my own stupidity deleting files without thinking. If you’re thinking about whether it’s worth paying for the space to keep all your files in the cloud...it is. Do it now and thank yourself later.
Great for storage but that’s about it
by Darreng0506 on 2020/06/27 10:32
Been yang DB for a couple years now as a paid subscription instead of using a hard drive. It’s great for storage but as I use it for all my media, photos, video and music have found that it lacks a lot in terms on media functionality. Would be great to have integrated media player with editing software, photo editing even being able to carry out simple tasks such as rotating images instead of having to export edit then save again and delete original unedited files. Also truth to batch move multilevel files in the app occasionally crashes and files are not moved and deselection of files and attempt to move again is required.
Great but has limits
by Rasheef on 2021/04/17 15:36
It’s a fantastic app, truly, I use it a lot. But it seems to lack some polish when integrating with iOS, and just support for modern video standards. My main gripe is you can’t export Live photos from iPhone, something Apple have supported for years there’s not really a good reason for not being able to export the mov file associated with Live photos. It means you still have to sync to a Mac and then export to Dropbox if you want to retain them, a major additional faff. Also the lack of support for HDR video previews is a little baffling, HDR has not really snuck up on us, it’s been coming for a long time. I’d like to be able to watch HDR without then looking like a washed out mess please.
Wonderful!
by AAA.KS on 2018/06/07 13:26
All I want to do is move my files out of dropbox into my ordinary device storage. It only gives me the option to download and view my files inside the app. I need it outside the app to use it to edit videos, transfer it to other mediums, like my usb flash drive. I feel like my own property is being controlled and quarantined away from me. I feel angry. EDIT!: I am happy! I have found out how to properly download my files. I click ”...”, then I click “export”, then I click “open in...”, then I can save to my iphone, copy to my Google drive and do what I want. Thank you!
App Broken Since iOS13
by MrWillRA on 2020/07/07 15:44
I've either been unable to upload any files from my iPhone since September 2019 - or uploads were painfully slow and required the app to be open and the screen on. Background uploads DO NOT WORK. After a very unhelpful exchange with Dane from Dropbox Support he confirmed that it was no longer fully compatable since the intro of iOS13! I was told that my paid subscription is for the backup servers only and not the App. His advice was to resort to the desktop software and that my paid subscription does not involve any support. This was the end of our correspondence and no assistance was even given to obtain the files. Very disappointing as I've been paying for something I can't use as intended for 10 months. No offer of a refund was provided.
Thought this would help!
by Ennoaj on 2020/05/30 11:00
I downloaded this app and initially thought it was great to hold my school support documents on, making it easier to send information straight from my phone to parents, during the Covid lockdown I am supporting families and children especially with their transition anxiety to their next school. I have some very supportive documents which I had hoped I could send to parents and you have not allowed me to attach them unless I upgrade! I am really disappointed that during this very difficult time that your company are not supporting us key workers to help support families by lifting this fee. Truly disappointed. This could have been a really good tool to help us but instead the greedy fee has been your only interest.
App OK but not compatible
by Catfish_Spoonbender on 2020/09/17 14:06
The app itself has always worked fine, but I can’t rate it any higher than two stars because the browser version- on my tablet at least- is so slow as to be unusable. It’s not my browser/tablet as this is the only website I have a speed problem with. Two test runs to access two different files took more than half an hour (and I still can only open them on the screen, not download!). If you only want to use the app it’s ok, but if you ever want to be able to access your files from any device that doesn’t have it, I strongly suggest another cloud storage provider.
Easy and Essential
by Kemilyb on 2019/03/22 06:29
I Love Dropbox. Started almost a year ago when I joined a guitar group. My bulging folder of paper music, was heavy and a pain to keep printing off. Any alterations were wasteful. This digital space, where several of us can alter, share and view our music is a massive part of our time. Not sure life would be so easy without it.
Bug in most recent update
by mrchimp on 2018/06/08 18:41
This used to be brilliant. I’ve reported several times that since the last update the app is using ENORMOUS amounts of mobile data, even with cellular data off for photos and videos. The app has used 12gb of my mobile data in a couple of days since I switched it back on, despite mostly being connected to WiFi, and video/photo upload off. I barely use the app most of the time so this is inexplicable. What the hell is it doing?! That’s the size of 3 full length DVDs or a large PlayStation game! It did the same in May and cost me a fortune in extra data charges until I realised the App was using it all. It got through 5gb in a hour that time, although admittedly I had photo uploading on, it seemed to get stuck loading 1 photo constantly. No compensation from Dropbox for all the wasted money on EE data top ups. I’m a paying user and I’m losing my patience with Dropbox for not sorting this out, if it is not sorted I’ll take my money elsewhere. SORT IT OUT DROPBOX

Horrific with Text Files
by webplus on 2018/09/17 20:33
Creating and saving text files is extremely bad with this app. It doesn’t allow you to simply open the text editor and add text with autosave as most iOS apps do. You have to tap something before you can edit a text file and then remember to save any changes or edits, otherwise it’s all lost. The app constantly fails to load the latest version of text files. Instead you get the version last opened on the device, which could be days or weeks out of date. The app may or may not realise this after several minutes and ask you to ‘refresh’ the text file to get the newest version. This frequently causes conflicted copies of text files. The only way to bypass these problems is to remember to force quit the app whenever it’s used to hopefully get updated text files. Very unreliable and a terrible experience if you use it with text files.
Only one overpriced storage scheme
by mcka98 on 2021/03/16 22:29
Just scoped out all the main photo backup apps as my 0365 subscription expired and my OneDrive storage shrank. My main archive is about 350 GIG so 500 GIG would be perfect. Dropbox only offers 2 terabytes for £9.99 a month which is way over what I need price and capacity wise. If only there was a 500 GIG storage option for £2.50... Are you reading this Dropbox people!!?. It’s actually far cheaper for me to go back to 0365 for £5.99 a month which gives me all the office apps/bells and whistles AND 5 terabytes of storage for my files and pictures. Can’t believe I’m bigging up Microsoft but you get a lot more for your money with them 😂
Making an iPad genuinely useful
by George AdvHtg on 2018/06/04 15:51
It would be great if DropBox would included an rtf editor within the preview pane on iOS. As of today - June 2018 - the only files you can directly type into are .txt files. Such a shame - surely an rtf-editor isn't too much to ask for? On the positive side, without dropbox it would be a real struggle to switch over to using iPad as an everyday business tool. The offline files facility is SO much better than Google Drive.
Easy to use, but false sense of security.
by viewer-x on 2018/05/28 17:36
I signed up for dropbox paid version in the hope of being able to sync and share my files across all my devices and be fully up to-date. Imagine my shock when having saved my spreadsheets to drop box that I’d spent hours working on my mobile pc, looking at the dropbox tray utility to confirm everything was synced, and opening up the same files on my internet enabled home pc to find that not only had my dropbox files in the cloud not been updated but the old files on my home pc overwrote the mobile laptop files destroying hours of work!! I would have been better off with a usb keyfob! (That is where I am now). No conflict resolution or management and no previous versions offered. Nada. Hugely disappointed. * No detailed file list with date & time * No effective conflict resolution for concurrent changes on more than 1 device.
Always there for me....
by FizzyWhizzyPapa on 2018/05/26 06:06
It really is. I can save from my phone and find it from my laptop. In this day and age we shouldn’t be storing on our devices that is so last century ;-) Why have your smartphone or laptop die or get stolen or lost to find you’ve list all your important pictures and documents. Often our devices groan under the weight of all the storage they need to manage ! Dropbox it. Automatic camera upload, scanning and saving documents and decent storage at reasonable prices. You can make some documents available offline too which is helpful for guides, maps & timetables. It’s almost perfect, a little more whizz and more intuitive controls and settings would make this a standout market leader !
Great to stay organised
by Cudgeecoo on 2020/05/30 17:44
I use this app mostly for work purposes but have a personal account too. The ease to be able to share dance choreography and work related things with colleagues is brilliant. If the monthly payments were lower for more storage to let’s say £6.99 I’d be tempted to upgrade my personal account. That’s the only thing I would like to suggest.
Dropbox app
by Thearyan96 on 2018/09/27 20:02
I tapped the drop box app to open it but it was taking a very long time to open the app and put my email and password in they accepted my email and password but it is taking a long time to log in I deleted the app and downloaded it again I know I have my email and password is correct because I have written them down before I made my account as well as I log in on my laptop but I only have the problem when I use the app on my IPhone I don’t know if it my have problems with internet or the app any one have the same experience I have?
Great for work
by imp85281 on 2020/01/22 22:44
Consider using Dropbox for sharing files with VA’s or photos with them. My Va accesses whatever I put up and it’s super easy. I get emails when she changes things in the folders too so that’s great. 2 GB for free is loads too. I understand why you may start using more space and I think I’ll probably most likely end up there. I’m not sure how much I’ll use so I’ll probably take it one step at a time. I think I can back up my iPhone data this way but I’m not sure. I’ll have to look into that. All in all, I’m very pleased and have sent out referrals links too as I think lots of people can benefit for using this. It’s great. Thanks. Bye
Awful experience
by Jaaaal on 2021/01/24 15:01
I recorded a video 14.5 minutes long of course it won’t send through normal channels so I thought great drop box option. Downloaded the app because it said it was better. I’ve signed up for a 30day free trial to even use, I’ve spent 1 hour 40 minutes uploading this video to it to send for the recipient to not even be able to view it without signing up themselves for the same trial. I am fuming. Absolute waste of time and will be cancelling and never using again. Next step going to try Google drive and hopefully that won’t let me down.

Worst file storage app
by Genova witness on 2019/07/30 12:34
Just tried to use Dropbox after deleting it years ago, I should have left it deleted. After opening it up it says I have apparently used 98% of my 2Gb space but when I go to my files I can’t delete anything, the only files there are images other people have shared with me, are these taking up space in my storage? Who knows. It’s impossible to tell at a glance with the app’s terrible UI and usability. Overall a poor file storage app, many other apps developed by kids work far better, or just use google.
You have made a new update without notifying and it BAD!
by this cant work .. on 2019/03/11 18:41
I came on it thinking oh let move these file to my pc . Oh nooo I forgot it take forever to upload and I can’t even add the files some time get the old menu back ASAP it was a 5 star but no longer until you change it back and don’t say you haven’t it wasn’t like that yesterday or this morning in fact
Notifications temperamental
by Laurie-Jane on 2020/05/10 12:03
The notification system for comments or mentions in comments is extremely temperamental. Some days this will be working just fine but the majority of the time I have to wait for an email to say there has been a reply to a comment/mention. Aside from that Dropbox is fab and always has been. Just a shame about this feature.
Reliability is everything
by Ummsalam on 2020/03/16 09:23
Have been using Dropbox for several years now in its free version but recently upgraded to a paid contract. I researched other options and tested a few but found Dropbox to be the most reliable with a lot of flexibility. Not the cheapest but for me consistency and reliability of service was paramount.
Major problems in latest version...
by Ken Kei Whitewind on 2018/10/13 09:24
I’ve been a long term user but there are major problems after the latest update. App keeps crashing when opening files. Freezes when trying to navigate files. Unusable basically. Is there no QA?

Over charged
by Emilyyy j on 2019/09/06 07:27
I have been using drop box for years and recently went over my limit on storage for free so I upgraded. I went on to my account and I still had no extra storage space and my account was still saying basic so I assumed the upgrade didn’t go through. I have checked my bank accounts and they have been taking £9.99 for months. I have tried to contact them, to cancel and refund but cannot get through and it’s impossible to stop it as my account still says basic. It’s so frustrating!
Can’t connect to IOS files
by Swebo on 2019/08/18 21:44
*******Issue below was resolved and fixed promptly ********** I am not sure when this happened but it must have been in the last couple days. When I open excel or word, I no longer can access my Dropbox files. I am being told that its not supported and sometimes even being told that the server is not reachable. I wish I could send you the screen shots. I have deleted the Dropbox app and reinstalled it - same issue. I have deleted my account from excel and word and now can’t re-connect it to Dropbox. It used to work well these last couple years for me.
Great App... but...
by alun101_uk on 2020/09/16 22:01
Been using Dropbox since the beginning and can’t fault the app, however, now I’m restricted to 3 devices only (I used 5 with my band) I need to upgrade. The price plans are still too much though. I’m not fussed about getting 2Tb of storage, more than happy with 8Gb as I use iCloud for most other things. If DB offered a monthly price of <£5 just for adding more users, that would be great, but £7.99 is just too much... hence not 5* review.
Just what I needed
by 1chiquitita on 2020/05/19 08:09
It is easy to use, in particular to save all those documents and information that you cannot carry with you all the time, it is also secure and you can access your files anytime. I have tell friends about and they have also joined.
Poor scrolling
by CHECKPRIME on 2020/12/09 18:50
Please, please, please redesign the scrollbar. It’s impossible to use on an iPhone 11. That tiny little round excuse of a bar is so hard to press and drag. Also, why the hell do I need to log-in via a built-in browser when trying to submit feedback on your app. Please do put some more effort in the ux to make a full app instead of having vital sections like feedback loading in a browser. Thank you
large uploads very inefficient
by Chaoticjohn on 2020/08/30 04:31
i generally have a good experience with dropbox which supplants a lot of the inadequacies of the ipad operating system. but i’ve found that large uploads take an extremely long time. i suspect there’s a problem in breaking files down. currently uploading a single 2.5gb file and it has taken +12 hours to get to not even get to 90%. i understand download and upload connections are optimised differently by infrastructure but this looks more like a problem in the app. the app runs extremely sluggishly in this time and like it’s consumed the device’s entire memory. i’m on ipad pro and i expect better. as i say generally very good. the upload handling though seems like it needs attention.
Can’t close file preview
by Mikebaughurst on 2019/09/28 18:10
Been using Dropbox for years & not had any real issues until last app upgrade. I now can’t close the file preview window, the x that used to be at the top on the left has disappeared, tried uninstalling, restarting iPad but to no avail. Most of my files have long file names which I now can’t see due to only having less than a quarter of the screen to use, probably going to delete app as it’s now unusable

Drop great, but update is disappointing
by Slyppery Styx on 2020/03/05 11:20
Dropbox in an excellent way to store files and move them effortlessly between computers. It is worth paying for increased capacity. However, since the recent update, it has become less easy to use. For example, uploading files is more difficult and indexing is not as good. This is disappointing, but does not detract too badly for its overall usefulness.
It’s good
by Tate1234321 on 2020/09/29 18:25
You can do a bit of changes a bit more bits and pieces it’s great a very good game the age though is including I thought it would be be like 12 years old but my friends love this app I quite boring but typically awesome pls do a update this is very indispensable and it’s royal and loyal I’m 45 years old this game is awesome
Stuck/won’t update
by Chico Cheb on 2020/07/30 09:02
Last 2 weeks this app has tried to update but just gets stuck. Spinning loading icon, but never updates. Have been using this for years with no problems but just recently seems too keep sticking on update. Other than that the app still works fine.
Default upload folder change missing
by Ssotyi on 2019/05/07 23:03
I've been using Dropbox for around 7 years. And I can't believe I still have to manually struggle with all my 10k+ photos every time I get a new phone. Simply because I can't change the default upload folder. Like that I could just make a new folder every time I change my phone. And I change it very often.
Essential
by Naz89 on 2019/07/01 10:55
I’ve always use Dropbox for file storage. Would be great if they retained files without losing a bit of resolution. Also please integrate file conversion within the app, I can’t view jp2 file types unless I convert them into jpg. Update: Thank you for your response.
Last Release
by David de Niese on 2020/04/11 15:16
The ability to see how many photos and videos are waiting to upload from my iPhone to Dropbox and how fast the upload is progressing has been removed from the latest release. Please can I have that functionality back. Apart from this it’s a 5 star product.
Too slow.
by deckr8 on 2020/01/27 13:02
The whole Dropbox is too slow particularly when you want to download from it. Most times it places you in a download queue so you can wait up to 10 minutes before it trickles the file to you eventually. After uploading a file it can take another 10 minutes for the system to register the upload on other devices no matter how much you refresh the screen. Not something I would consider paying for in an upgrade.
DROPBox
by hidehi1966-3 on 2020/10/28 18:48
I’ve been using Dropbox for several years now and am more than happy with the convenience it provides. In terms of security, versatility and ease of use, I also can manage my media, work and personal artefacts with confidence... I wish I’d thought of the Dropbox idea!.. Robert AWERE - Author/Publisher
It would be nice if I could read the file names
by Kirky29 on 2018/12/19 12:16
It would be nice if you could resize the side bar so you can read the file names. I know it scrolls, but it takes time and doesn’t feel productive at all. Or maybe an option to hide the preview screen and just have it as a file browser until you tap on a file... Other than that it’s a good app.
The primary place for important documents
by DrTHe777 on 2020/04/17 09:36
I have been using Dropbox around ten years? I use this to store my important scanned documents and thesis and very rare information. Hope it can give more space for free users before they are committed to pay.

Same problem as last update. Corrupted Photos 05/05/21
by Blitz7287 on 2021/05/05 12:02
The previous update broke the app for it. It's constantly corrupting images as they are being uploaded from an iPhone 11 on the latest public update. I'm on a business plan using it for my business and it's hampering my ability. Currently testing out other options.
Won’t let me go!!!
by thickobviously on 2021/05/04 10:27
A great app until you want to leave. I still pay £9.99 monthly for the upgrade because I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET IT OFF MY PHONE. NO HELP AVAILABLE. BEWARE!!!

Great storage and retrieval
Simple to use file storage
by Strongmoon on 2021/04/29 20:13
Dropbox has always worked seamlessly for me however since latest iOS update 14.5 the scanner function causes the app to crash (impossible to use this function now). I’m using iPhone 7.
Can’t save files from emails
by Hatticus on 2021/04/18 20:25
Trying to save PDFs from emails to Dropbox, and it just doesn’t work. It just wants me to send them to someone.
Great but has limits
by Rasheef on 2021/04/17 15:36
It’s a fantastic app, truly, I use it a lot. But it seems to lack some polish when integrating with iOS, and just support for modern video standards. My main gripe is you can’t export Live photos from iPhone, something Apple have supported for years there’s not really a good reason for not being able to export the mov file associated with Live photos. It means you still have to sync to a Mac and then export to Dropbox if you want to retain them, a major additional faff. Also the lack of support for HDR video previews is a little baffling, HDR has not really snuck up on us, it’s been coming for a long time. I’d like to be able to watch HDR without then looking like a washed out mess please.
HSBC Business API doesn’t work

I can access my HSBC personal accounts but not my business account despite being given the option.
Frustrating!
by Happy Being a teacher on 2021/04/15 11:26
I find Dropbox impossible to use, all I want to do is add new photos to my existing photos on my phone and iPad.
Great, expensive tho, customer support not top notch l!
by GreekNiko on 2021/04/13 19:57
When it works this is very good & deserves its place as one of the market leaders, but it’s not the most generous with free space & if you pay for more space (as I do) it’s not the cheapest out there by a long shot! However, if you happen to encounter a problem I’m afraid you’re on your own, the community support is flakey with not many hits & little advice useful advice IMHO, emailing customer support is not particularly speedy & takes time to get to heart of the problem! Also, most importantly, don’t develop a problem out of ‘office hours’ or at the weekend! All cloud based services like Dropbox will encounter a problem at one time or another, so customer support for a big potential standard setter (like Dropbox would probably like to think it is) should have 24/7 help available, especially for the high subs it asks for! Otherwise I guess it’s as good as anything else around!

Export
by Indomitable26 on 2021/04/08 20:02
This was great but the latest update has removed Export! I can no long export photos to my iPad and iPhone. Why has this been removed?
The last software update just deleted +5,000 files I had on the cloud
by CallMeUnique on 2021/04/04 08:32
I know Dropbox will say that they can’t delete files for you but in no way did I delete over 5,000 files in 5seconds on my own. Even worst that everytime I restored them it would re-delete. No I've not been hacked. No I’ve not had anyone else on my account No these weren’t shared folders. ALL OF MY STUFF JUST WENT! I’m switching to google drive. I can’t trust any app that has this crazy amount of issues and when you go to the community page and read the comments TONNES of the people have had the same exact issue!

Only one overpriced storage scheme
by mcka98 on 2021/03/16 22:29
Just scoped out all the main photo backup apps as my 0365 subscription expired and my OneDrive storage shrank. My main archive is about 350 GIG so 500 GIG would be perfect. Dropbox only offers 2 terabytes for £9.99 a month which is way over what I need price and capacity wise. If only there was a 500 GIG storage option for £2.50... Are you reading this Dropbox people!!?. It’s actually far cheaper for me to go back to 0365 for £5.99 a month which gives me all the office apps/bells and whistles AND 5 terabytes of storage for my files and pictures. Can’t believe I’m bigging up Microsoft but you get a lot more for your money with them 😂
Poor and not well coded
by dave_bass5 on 2021/03/13 14:56
Too many issues to mention, mostly small issues, but the ability to play an audio file for a a bit and then go back later gives me either nothing, as in it’s all working other than actually playing, or issue accessing the file Restarting the app works so there are no issues with connection etc.

Accessing files
by UX Designer123 on 2021/02/18 22:42
Giving this a 1 star review because I think it’s ridiculous that I have to download the Dropbox app and create an account to simply access a file from a link someone has sent me. Awful UX. This never used to be the case.
Why would you use this!?
by P. Roka on 2021/02/18 11:46
Just don’t even begin using it, both apple icloud and Google drive are just far better and chipper. Also fed up of Dropbox asking for upgrades and money every time I just want to open my bloody document!

by Hope1000 on 2021/02/09 21:26
Come on Still no multiple instances on iPad OS. This key productivity app still doesn’t have multiple instances on iPad OS. This would allow 2 dropbox windows side by side and be a huge productivity benefit. Come on Dropbox!

Dropbox app(latest)
by snnib on 2021/02/09 12:04
Get the new app-says Dropbox. And, goes on to extoll the virtues of their latest product. 'Fine' says I, and proceeds to download it. Only to be informed that my device,an I-pad Is not compatible. So the new app is useless to me. As is Dropbox, as the app I have no longer works. How wonderful is Dropbox?

Have been paying for Dropbox for a couple years now, it’s been quite good. Suddenly I’m locked out of my account and after 40+ times I’ve contacted them I’ve had 0 support (email Twitter Facebook insta etc). Wouldn’t touch them again, better use google drive!

A-MA-ZING DAHLING
by Bookworm123769 on 2021/01/27 21:36
this app is super I needed an app that could control the speed of the music and I downloaded basically all the Apps on App Store until I find this one and I’m so glad I found this one because it is the best app ever just yesterday I was in my flute lesson and I use the app and it helped me so much you really get this up and if you don’t have iTunes music it is okay because you can get this app called dropbox and if you have the music on a link on WhatsApp maybe you can screen record you playing the music on the link or video and then you can see if that screen record go onto dropbox create your own folder and add a photo and then you select the video of the music and then that’s on you for doing the go back onto this app and go onto open and then go on to add music go onto dropbox and then you can choose the folder they created and then the songs that you put into that folder will be there I TOTALLY recommend this app :)
Great way to keep files

Awful experience
by Jaaaal on 2021/01/24 15:01
I recorded a video 14.5 minutes long of course it won’t send through normal channels so I thought great drop box option. Downloaded the app because it said it was better. I’ve signed up for a 30day free trial to even use, I’ve spent 1 hour 40 minutes uploading this video to it to send for the recipient to not even be able to view it without signing up themselves for the same trial. I am fuming. Absolute waste of time and will be cancelling and never using again. Next step going to try Google drive and hopefully that won’t let me down.
Used to love this app
by landm1980 on 2021/01/21 23:29
This used to be my go to app for cloud storage. That was until several years of photos were lost because I hadn’t been using it apparently -despite uploading on a regular basis. I now use google drive for general storage and OneDrive as my go to for anything important, I get a decent terabyte of storage on OneDrive and pay about £2 a month. In terms of customer service, Dropbox tried to explain it was my fault not theirs.

I got rid of my Dropbox account however have been charged twice now for a subscription I am not part of. The first time I let it slide because I still had a login even though I wasn’t a plus member. I then deleted my account and I’m still getting charged. I’ve now paid £18.98 toward this and don’t even have an account.
Preview this folder doesn’t work
by artfuljames on 2021/01/03 15:25
When you tap “preview this folder” it doesn’t work, meaning you cannot see previews of shared folders without buying more space.
It’s gotten worse
by Wesley Riot on 2020/12/30 14:50
Can’t seem to move files in or out of Dropbox using iOS files app any more. When trying to upload files to Dropbox using the app, it either won’t show all files or won’t let me select them. Doesn’t help that the UI is confusing and poorly laid out
Account restriction work around
by Microsoft dont like apple on 2020/12/15 06:48
The app was updated a while back to restrict the number of devices that can be connected to an account. Probably because quite a few people have a large chunk of free storage which they share across a number of devices which brings little or no revenue into Dropbox. The work around is to create a shared folder and create a second account. Log some of your devices into this second account. You are then back to sharing the data across 6 devices. Create a 3rd account and this gives you 9 devices and so on. If you have buckets of data this won’t work but 2GB is quite a sizeable chunk to share. For archive info use One Drive or some other slower package and keep Dropbox for the current on the fly info you need. It can be a bit of a faf to set up but it keeps it free to users. If you need access to lots of large data over the web consider using something like Western Digital Cloud. There is an initial outlay but the data is stored in a known location - your home. It can be configured to auto backup you PC and give remote access to all of your files. You could also share the space with your friends and everyone wins.
Perfect, but
by omxs on 2020/12/14 06:39
Just wondering why - when you load an app for the very first time, you see a couple of huge buttons suggesting you to sign up, and there a tiny little one at the bottom that goes to sign in?
Poor scrolling
by CHECKPRIME on 2020/12/09 18:50
Please, please, please redesign the scrollbar. It’s impossible to use on an iPhone 11. That tiny little round excuse of a bar is so hard to press and drag.

Disappointingly, when trying to upload pictures recently I am met with an ‘unknown error’ app has been updated but still no joy - fix please??

Has stopped working with Shortcuts - again
by AlanWestwood on 2020/11/12 00:38
Most of the time I find Dropbox very useful, but everytime there’s a major iOS/iPadOS upgrade it fails to work with the Apple Shortcuts app. I’m not sure whether the solution lies with Apple or Dropbox, but either way I have to stop using Dropbox until its fixed - the tasks I use it for are simple single clicks with Shortcuts, but tedious done manually. This time, even with release 14.2, this problem has still not been fixed.
Great app!

I’ve been using Dropbox for several years now and am more than happy with the convenience it provides. In terms of security, versatility and ease of use, I also can manage my media, work and personal artefacts with confidence... I wish I’d thought of the Dropbox idea!.. Robert AWERE - Author/Publisher
Appalling support
by IK1047 on 2020/10/24 15:44
Good when it works but file transfer stopped working for me and support was rude and unhelpful. Anything that needs so much time to tweak and reset your computer settings (still without success) is best avoided. Support won’t lift a finger without a ‘screencast’....

Select All on iPad

I love Dropbox, but the fact that there is no select-all option on iPad makes my life 1000x more complicated when wanting to download bulk .raw image files.
Not great
by obliss1 on 2020/10/14 17:31
pros: - looks good - updates frequently reliably cons: - awful functioning on the files app. - no multitasking/ split screen - frequently struggles to rename or move folders despite strong internet connection - native apps such as numbers, pages documents simply can’t be used without duplicate copies made. Therefore limited to use microsoft excel and word :( This has been a problem for years, with no apparent changes being made by the developers. - v expensive compared to alternatives
Battery Drain on IPad
by troublesome96 on 2020/10/14 14:01
You know about this battery drain even with background turned off and yes MONTHS later us paid users can’t use it with it eating battery life How about fixing this bug which makes this cloud software currently unusable ?
Good app

I want to manage what’s on my storage in shared folders
by Nickiham on 2020/10/04 08:44
But I can’t so every Mb used on my Dropbox is a Mb used on every members of that folder’s Dropbox. If I delete on my Dropbox I delete on everyone’s Dropbox. I don’t like this restriction so I don’t really use Dropbox. Not worth it
It’s good
by Tate1234321 on 2020/09/29 18:25
You can do a bit of changes a bit more bits and pieces it’s great a very good game the age though is including I thought it would be be like 12 years old but my friends love this app I quite boring but typically awesome pls do a update this is very indispensable and it’s royal and loyal I’m 45 years old this game is awesome

App OK but not compatible
by Catfish_Spoonbender on 2020/09/17 14:06
The app itself has always worked fine, but I can’t rate it any higher than two stars because the browser version- on my tablet at least- is so slow as to be unusable. It’s not my browser/tablet as this is the only website I have a speed problem with. Two test runs to access two different files took more than half an hour (and I still can only open them on the screen, not download!). If you only want to use the app it’s ok, but if you ever want to be able to access your files from any device that doesn’t have it, I strongly suggest another cloud storage provider.
Great App... but...
by alun101_uk on 2020/09/16 22:01
Been using Dropbox since the beginning and can’t fault the app, however, now I’m restricted to 3 devices only (I used 5 with my band) I need to upgrade. The price plans are still too much though. I’m not fussed about getting 2Tb of storage, more than happy with 8Gb as I use iCloud for most other things. If DB offered a monthly price of <£5 just for adding more users, that would be great, but £7.99 is just too much... hence not 5* review.

Amazing app but the fee
by Kamzeh on 2020/09/14 12:05
I love love this app, one of the easiest storage apps but my goodness the fee. You only get 2GB for free which is too little for most people but then if you want to subscribe the only option is to get 1TB. Realistically no ones going to use up that much space straight away. I’ve had my paid account for about 2y? now and I’m not even half way (just checked and I’ve used up 7.5% of my paid storage, 7.5!!) it would have been logical to have different paid options so everyone can choose what suits them best. If you need more storage down the line you just get a more expensive option. I’ve contacted the CS numerous times regarding this but they just say we don’t have another option for now so it’s no help. Once I clean up my phone and back up all my photos onto my laptop I will be unsubscribing unfortunately and only use the free option if I need it.
Not really a cloud solutions is it?
by daimosmj on 2020/09/07 07:41
What is the point of this app if you cannot manage how much space it should take from your device? I cannot currently upload any files do Dropbox via app as I am getting error message that there is no space on my iPad. That is because Dropbox app is taking 45GB on iPad. So what is the purpose of this app then?!
Dreadful

large uploads very inefficient
by Chaoticjohn on 2020/08/30 04:31
i generally have a good experience with dropbox which supplants a lot of the inadequacies of the ipad operating system. but i’ve found that large uploads take an extremely long time. i suspect there’s a problem in breaking files down. currently uploading a single 2.5gb file and it has taken +12 hours to get to not even get to 90%. i understand download and upload connections are optimised differently by infrastructure but this looks more like a problem in the app. the app runs extremely sluggishly in this time and like it’s consumed the device’s entire memory. i’m on ipad pro and i expect better. as i say generally very good. the upload handling though seems like it needs attention.

Take care, you may be paying twice!
by Markw57 on 2020/08/21 19:29
I am a long time Dropbox user with a Dropbox professional account. I used this app to connect to my existing Dropbox account. No problem with that, that is how you would expect to use it. However several years later, I have just found out I am paying twice for it. Apple has placed a subscription in my iTunes account. No idea how it got there. I have been paying around £10 per month for the privilege of connecting to my Dropbox Professional account which I am paying £199 a year for. I have never taken out another account, why would I? My account is directly with Dropbox. I don’t recall any messages in the app saying a subscription would be applied either. So take care with this app and check your subscriptions from time to time. The app works fine, just not at all happy about this scam.
Destroys battery life
by Just another SteveO on 2020/08/19 20:12
I was seriously about to return my iPad Pro for very poor battery life - it was dropping 40% or more overnight and normal usage during the day saw a terrible drop in battery life. Checked the battery in settings and found the culprit was the Dropbox app. Running in the background for up to 40 minutes every hour. Checked on Dropbox forum, not alone, others are seeing the same thing. Others also reported that turning off the background refresh didn’t solve the problem; deleting it however..... So, deleted app and so far, battery life normal. Needs sorting out - or just forget Dropbox, plenty of other providers available.
Lost it’s focus, now too expensive
by theNightCoder on 2020/08/16 08:43
I used Dropbox for many years on a pro subscription and while it is still arguably the best cross platform cloud storage, they have been using newly added features that nobody really wants as justification to increase the price. I don’t want or need a Dropbox password manager or Dropbox office suite. Dropbox used to do simple cloud storage so well at a fair price but now no longer does.

I am usually happy with DropBox but it urgently requires an update. Since IOS13 it’s a pain to scroll trough excel files as I am always getting stuck when trying to scroll from one side one tho the other. Sideways, up or down any direction same.....please update!!!
Stuck/won’t update
by Chico Cheb on 2020/07/30 09:02
Last 2 weeks this app has tried to update but just gets stuck. Spinning loading icon, but never updates. Have been using this for years with no problems but just recently seems too keep sticking on update. Other than that the app still works fine.

by Nkersov on 2020/07/11 08:04
The latest update makes it impossible to name new folders at the time of creation, and tells me that moving files between folders has failed... when I can see the files in place. The app used to be essential, but keeps getting worse, adding stuff that nobody asked for, and taking away features that were of benefit. Such as serving HTML pages. Nic

Continually fails to connect to server
by Deephorse on 2020/07/09 05:34
I've had the Dropbox app on my ipad for several years now, but hardly ever use it. I was recently sent a Dropbox link to download some files that I had purchased. It took me a while to work out hw to do this because information on how to use the app is non-existant. Once I knew what I was supposed to do the next issue was that the app continually failed to link to the server. I finally found a workaround and had to use it after each file download. It will be a while before I ever use Dropbox again.
Amazing tool day in day out....
by Guttibh on 2018/05/29 08:37
I joined Dropbox 9 years ago and since then I use it on daily basis. I am a big fan... the app is very easy to use, convenient to keep those receipts I can’t throw away. Sharing files with my friends is easy and they can also have a copy of “that” special picture I took. Mum has access to my pictures and from abroad (15k miles away) she can check them out at anytime and see her grandchildren growing up at fast pace. Its reliable and secure! I trust my files are safe and at my fingertip at anytime! Thank you the developers for coming out with this great tool!!
A-MA-ZING DAHLING
by Bookworm123769 on 2021/01/27 21:36
this app is super I needed an app that could control the speed of the music and I downloaded basically all the Apps on App Store until I find this one and I’m so glad I found this one because it is the best app ever just yesterday I was in my flute lesson and I use the app and it helped me so much you really get this up and if you don’t have iTunes music it is okay because you can get this app called dropbox and if you have the music on a link on WhatsApp maybe you can screen record you playing the music on the link or video and then you can see if that screen record go onto dropbox create your own folder and add a photo and then you select the video of the music and then that’s on you for doing the go back onto this app and go onto open and then go on to add music go onto dropbox and then you can choose the folder they created and then the songs that you put into that folder will be there I TOTALLY recommend this app :)
Great, expensive tho, customer support not top notch l!
by GreekNiko on 2021/04/13 19:57
When it works this is very good & deserves its place as one of the market leaders, but it’s not the most generous with free space & if you pay for more space (as I do) it’s not the cheapest out there by a long shot! However, if you happen to encounter a problem I’m afraid you’re on your own, the community support is flakey with not many hits & little advice useful advice IMHO, emailing customer support is not particularly speedy & takes time to get to heart of the problem! Also, most importantly, don’t develop a problem out of ‘office hours’ or at the weekend! All cloud based services like Dropbox will encounter a problem at one time or another, so customer support for a big potential standard setter (like Dropbox would probably like to think it is) should have 24/7 help available, especially for the high subs it asks for! Otherwise I guess it’s as good as anything else around!

Account restriction work around
by Microsoft dont like apple on 2020/12/15 06:48
The app was updated a while back to restrict the number of devices that can be connected to an account. Probably because quite a few people have a large chunk of free storage which they share across a number of devices which brings little or no revenue into Dropbox. The work around is to create a shared folder and create a second account. Log some of your devices into this second account. You are then back to sharing the data across 6 devices. Create a 3rd account and this gives you 9 devices and so on. If you have buckets of data this won’t work but 2GB is quite a sizeable chunk to share. For archive info use One Drive or some other slower package and keep Dropbox for the current on the fly info you need. It can be a bit of a faf to set up but it keeps it free to users. If you need access to lots of large data over the web consider using something like Western Digital Cloud. There is an initial outlay but the data is stored in a known location - your home. It can be configured to auto backup you PC and give remote access to all of your files. You could also share the space with your friends and everyone wins.
Life saver
by JoeLeese on 2020/03/06 19:55
I very rarely write reviews, but Dropbox has earned 5 stars from me more than once. Absolute life saver, I pay for business storage and have never regretted it once. It’s saved me after tipping water on my laptop on client deadline day, and from my own stupidity deleting files without thinking. If you’re thinking about whether it’s worth paying for the space to keep all your files in the cloud...it is. Do it now and thank yourself later.
Great for storage but that’s about it
by Darreng0506 on 2020/06/27 10:32
Been yang DB for a couple years now as a paid subscription instead of using a hard drive. It’s great for storage but as I use it for all my media, photos, video and music have found that it lacks a lot in terms on media functionality. Would be great to have integrated media player with editing software, photo editing even being able to carry out simple tasks such as rotating images instead of having to export edit then save again and delete original unedited files. Also truth to batch move multilevel files in the app occasionally crashes and files are not moved and deselection of files and attempt to move again is required.
Great but has limits
by Rasheef on 2021/04/17 15:36
It’s a fantastic app, truly, I use it a lot. But it seems to lack some polish when integrating with iOS, and just support for modern video standards. My main gripe is you can’t export Live photos from iPhone, something Apple have supported for years there’s not really a good reason for not being able to export the mov file associated with Live photos. It means you still have to sync to a Mac and then export to Dropbox if you want to retain them, a major additional faff. Also the lack of support for HDR video previews is a little baffling, HDR has not really snuck up on us, it’s been coming for a long time. I’d like to be able to watch HDR without then looking like a washed out mess please.
Wonderful!
by AAA.KS on 2018/06/07 13:26
All I want to do is move my files out of dropbox into my ordinary device storage. It only gives me the option to download and view my files inside the app. I need it outside the app to use it to edit videos, transfer it to other mediums, like my usb flash drive. I feel like my own property is being controlled and quarantined away from me. I feel angry. EDIT!: I am happy! I have found out how to properly download my files. I click ”...”, then I click “export”, then I click “open in...”, then I can save to my iphone, copy to my Google drive and do what I want. Thank you!
App Broken Since iOS13
by MrWillRA on 2020/07/07 15:44
I've either been unable to upload any files from my iPhone since September 2019 - or uploads were painfully slow and required the app to be open and the screen on. Background uploads DO NOT WORK. After a very unhelpful exchange with Dane from Dropbox Support he confirmed that it was no longer fully compatable since the intro of iOS13! I was told that my paid subscription is for the backup servers only and not the App. His advice was to resort to the desktop software and that my paid subscription does not involve any support. This was the end of our correspondence and no assistance was even given to obtain the files. Very disappointing as I've been paying for something I can't use as intended for 10 months. No offer of a refund was provided.
Thought this would help!
by Ennoaj on 2020/05/30 11:00
I downloaded this app and initially thought it was great to hold my school support documents on, making it easier to send information straight from my phone to parents, during the Covid lockdown I am supporting families and children especially with their transition anxiety to their next school. I have some very supportive documents which I had hoped I could send to parents and you have not allowed me to attach them unless I upgrade! I am really disappointed that during this very difficult time that your company are not supporting us key workers to help support families by lifting this fee. Truly disappointed. This could have been a really good tool to help us but instead the greedy fee has been your only interest.

Easy and Essential
by Kemilyb on 2019/03/22 06:29
I Love Dropbox. Started almost a year ago when I joined a guitar group. My bulging folder of paper music, was heavy and a pain to keep printing off. Any alterations were wasteful. This digital space, where several of us can alter, share and view our music is a massive part of our time. Not sure life would be so easy without it.
Bug in most recent update
by mrchimp on 2018/06/08 18:41
This used to be brilliant. I’ve reported several times that since the last update the app is using ENORMOUS amounts of mobile data, even with cellular data off for photos and videos. The app has used 12gb of my mobile data in a couple of days since I switched it back on, despite mostly being connected to WiFi, and video/photo upload off. I barely use the app most of the time so this is inexplicable. What the hell is it doing?! That’s the size of 3 full length DVDs or a large PlayStation game! It did the same in May and cost me a fortune in extra data charges until I realised the App was using it all. It got through 5gb in a hour that time, although admittedly I had photo uploading on, it seemed to get stuck loading 1 photo constantly. No compensation from Dropbox for all the wasted money on EE data top ups. I’m a paying user and I’m losing my patience with Dropbox for not sorting this out, if it is not sorted I’ll take my money elsewhere. SORT IT OUT DROPBOX

Horrific with Text Files
by webplus on 2018/09/17 20:33
Creating and saving text files is extremely bad with this app. It doesn’t allow you to simply open the text editor and add text with autosave as most iOS apps do. You have to tap something before you can edit a text file and then remember to save any changes or edits, otherwise it’s all lost. The app constantly fails to load the latest version of text files. Instead you get the version last opened on the device, which could be days or weeks out of date. The app may or may not realise this after several minutes and ask you to ‘refresh’ the text file to get the newest version. This frequently causes conflicted copies of text files. The only way to bypass these problems is to remember to force quit the app whenever it’s used to hopefully get updated text files. Very unreliable and a terrible experience if you use it with text files.
Only one overpriced storage scheme
by mcka98 on 2021/03/16 22:29
Just scoped out all the main photo backup apps as my 0365 subscription expired and my OneDrive storage shrank. My main archive is about 350 GIG so 500 GIG would be perfect. Dropbox only offers 2 terabytes for £9.99 a month which is way over what I need price and capacity wise. If only there was a 500 GIG storage option for £2.50... Are you reading this Dropbox people!!?. It’s actually far cheaper for me to go back to 0365 for £5.99 a month which gives me all the office apps/bells and whistles AND 5 terabytes of storage for my files and pictures. Can’t believe I’m bigging up Microsoft but you get a lot more for your money with them 😂
Making an iPad genuinely useful
by George AdvHtg on 2018/06/04 15:51
It would be great if DropBox would included an rtf editor within the preview pane on iOS. As of today - June 2018 - the only files you can directly type into are .txt files. Such a shame - surely an rtf-editor isn't too much to ask for? On the positive side, without dropbox it would be a real struggle to switch over to using iPad as an everyday business tool. The offline files facility is SO much better than Google Drive.
Easy to use, but false sense of security.

I signed up for dropbox paid version in the hope of being able to sync and share my files across all my devices and be fully up to-date. Imagine my shock when having saved my spreadsheets to drop box that I’d spent hours working on my mobile pc, looking at the dropbox tray utility to confirm everything was synced, and opening up the same files on my internet enabled home pc to find that not only had my dropbox files in the cloud not been updated but the old files on my home pc overwrote the mobile laptop files destroying hours of work!! I would have been better off with a usb keyfob! (That is where I am now). No conflict resolution or management and no previous versions offered. Nada. Hugely disappointed. * No detailed file list with date & time * No effective conflict resolution for concurrent changes on more than 1 device.
Always there for me....

It really is. I can save from my phone and find it from my laptop. In this day and age we shouldn’t be storing on our devices that is so last century ;-) Why have your smartphone or laptop die or get stolen or lost to find you’ve list all your important pictures and documents. Often our devices groan under the weight of all the storage they need to manage ! Dropbox it. Automatic camera upload, scanning and saving documents and decent storage at reasonable prices. You can make some documents available offline too which is helpful for guides, maps & timetables. It’s almost perfect, a little more whizz and more intuitive controls and settings would make this a standout market leader !
Great to stay organised
by Cudgeecoo on 2020/05/30 17:44
I use this app mostly for work purposes but have a personal account too. The ease to be able to share dance choreography and work related things with colleagues is brilliant. If the monthly payments were lower for more storage to let’s say £6.99 I’d be tempted to upgrade my personal account. That’s the only thing I would like to suggest.
Dropbox app
by Thearyan96 on 2018/09/27 20:02
I tapped the drop box app to open it but it was taking a very long time to open the app and put my email and password in they accepted my email and password but it is taking a long time to log in I deleted the app and downloaded it again I know I have my email and password is correct because I have written them down before I made my account as well as I log in on my laptop but I only have the problem when I use the app on my IPhone I don’t know if it my have problems with internet or the app any one have the same experience I have?
Great for work
by imp85281 on 2020/01/22 22:44
Consider using Dropbox for sharing files with VA’s or photos with them. My Va accesses whatever I put up and it’s super easy. I get emails when she changes things in the folders too so that’s great. 2 GB for free is loads too. I understand why you may start using more space and I think I’ll probably most likely end up there. I’m not sure how much I’ll use so I’ll probably take it one step at a time. I think I can back up my iPhone data this way but I’m not sure. I’ll have to look into that. All in all, I’m very pleased and have sent out referrals links too as I think lots of people can benefit for using this. It’s great. Thanks. Bye
Awful experience
by Jaaaal on 2021/01/24 15:01
I recorded a video 14.5 minutes long of course it won’t send through normal channels so I thought great drop box option. Downloaded the app because it said it was better. I’ve signed up for a 30day free trial to even use, I’ve spent 1 hour 40 minutes uploading this video to it to send for the recipient to not even be able to view it without signing up themselves for the same trial. I am fuming. Absolute waste of time and will be cancelling and never using again. Next step going to try Google drive and hopefully that won’t let me down.
Continually fails to connect to server
by Deephorse on 2020/07/09 05:34
I've had the Dropbox app on my ipad for several years now, but hardly ever use it. I was recently sent a Dropbox link to download some files that I had purchased. It took me a while to work out hw to do this because information on how to use the app is non-existant. Once I knew what I was supposed to do the next issue was that the app continually failed to link to the server. I finally found a workaround and had to use it after each file download. It will be a while before I ever use Dropbox again.
Worst file storage app
by Genova witness on 2019/07/30 12:34
Just tried to use Dropbox after deleting it years ago, I should have left it deleted. After opening it up it says I have apparently used 98% of my 2Gb space but when I go to my files I can’t delete anything, the only files there are images other people have shared with me, are these taking up space in my storage? Who knows. It’s impossible to tell at a glance with the app’s terrible UI and usability. Overall a poor file storage app, many other apps developed by kids work far better, or just use google.
You have made a new update without notifying and it BAD!
by this cant work .. on 2019/03/11 18:41
I came on it thinking oh let move these file to my pc . Oh nooo I forgot it take forever to upload and I can’t even add the files some time get the old menu back ASAP it was a 5 star but no longer until you change it back and don’t say you haven’t it wasn’t like that yesterday or this morning in fact
Notifications temperamental
by Laurie-Jane on 2020/05/10 12:03
The notification system for comments or mentions in comments is extremely temperamental. Some days this will be working just fine but the majority of the time I have to wait for an email to say there has been a reply to a comment/mention. Aside from that Dropbox is fab and always has been. Just a shame about this feature.
Reliability is everything
by Ummsalam on 2020/03/16 09:23
Have been using Dropbox for several years now in its free version but recently upgraded to a paid contract. I researched other options and tested a few but found Dropbox to be the most reliable with a lot of flexibility. Not the cheapest but for me consistency and reliability of service was paramount.
Major problems in latest version...
by Ken Kei Whitewind on 2018/10/13 09:24
I’ve been a long term user but there are major problems after the latest update. App keeps crashing when opening files. Freezes when trying to navigate files. Unusable basically. Is there no QA?
Take care, you may be paying twice!
by Markw57 on 2020/08/21 19:29
I am a long time Dropbox user with a Dropbox professional account. I used this app to connect to my existing Dropbox account. No problem with that, that is how you would expect to use it. However several years later, I have just found out I am paying twice for it. Apple has placed a subscription in my iTunes account. No idea how it got there. I have been paying around £10 per month for the privilege of connecting to my Dropbox Professional account which I am paying £199 a year for. I have never taken out another account, why would I? My account is directly with Dropbox. I don’t recall any messages in the app saying a subscription would be applied either. So take care with this app and check your subscriptions from time to time. The app works fine, just not at all happy about this scam.
Over charged
by Emilyyy j on 2019/09/06 07:27
I have been using drop box for years and recently went over my limit on storage for free so I upgraded. I went on to my account and I still had no extra storage space and my account was still saying basic so I assumed the upgrade didn’t go through. I have checked my bank accounts and they have been taking £9.99 for months. I have tried to contact them, to cancel and refund but cannot get through and it’s impossible to stop it as my account still says basic. It’s so frustrating!
Can’t connect to IOS files
by Swebo on 2019/08/18 21:44
*******Issue below was resolved and fixed promptly ********** I am not sure when this happened but it must have been in the last couple days. When I open excel or word, I no longer can access my Dropbox files. I am being told that its not supported and sometimes even being told that the server is not reachable. I wish I could send you the screen shots. I have deleted the Dropbox app and reinstalled it - same issue. I have deleted my account from excel and word and now can’t re-connect it to Dropbox. It used to work well these last couple years for me.
Great App... but...
by alun101_uk on 2020/09/16 22:01
Been using Dropbox since the beginning and can’t fault the app, however, now I’m restricted to 3 devices only (I used 5 with my band) I need to upgrade. The price plans are still too much though. I’m not fussed about getting 2Tb of storage, more than happy with 8Gb as I use iCloud for most other things. If DB offered a monthly price of <£5 just for adding more users, that would be great, but £7.99 is just too much... hence not 5* review.
Just what I needed
by 1chiquitita on 2020/05/19 08:09
It is easy to use, in particular to save all those documents and information that you cannot carry with you all the time, it is also secure and you can access your files anytime. I have tell friends about and they have also joined.
Poor scrolling
by CHECKPRIME on 2020/12/09 18:50
Please, please, please redesign the scrollbar. It’s impossible to use on an iPhone 11. That tiny little round excuse of a bar is so hard to press and drag. Also, why the hell do I need to log-in via a built-in browser when trying to submit feedback on your app. Please do put some more effort in the ux to make a full app instead of having vital sections like feedback loading in a browser. Thank you
large uploads very inefficient
by Chaoticjohn on 2020/08/30 04:31
i generally have a good experience with dropbox which supplants a lot of the inadequacies of the ipad operating system. but i’ve found that large uploads take an extremely long time. i suspect there’s a problem in breaking files down. currently uploading a single 2.5gb file and it has taken +12 hours to get to not even get to 90%. i understand download and upload connections are optimised differently by infrastructure but this looks more like a problem in the app. the app runs extremely sluggishly in this time and like it’s consumed the device’s entire memory. i’m on ipad pro and i expect better. as i say generally very good. the upload handling though seems like it needs attention.
Can’t close file preview
by Mikebaughurst on 2019/09/28 18:10
Been using Dropbox for years & not had any real issues until last app upgrade. I now can’t close the file preview window, the x that used to be at the top on the left has disappeared, tried uninstalling, restarting iPad but to no avail. Most of my files have long file names which I now can’t see due to only having less than a quarter of the screen to use, probably going to delete app as it’s now unusable
Dropbox is the best
by Karen Com on 2018/05/17 12:10
We have a small business and we all work out of the office. We are able to share information and file large worksheets with each other without endless emails and no duplications . It has revolutionized our working
Drop great, but update is disappointing
by Slyppery Styx on 2020/03/05 11:20
Dropbox in an excellent way to store files and move them effortlessly between computers. It is worth paying for increased capacity. However, since the recent update, it has become less easy to use. For example, uploading files is more difficult and indexing is not as good. This is disappointing, but does not detract too badly for its overall usefulness.
It’s good
by Tate1234321 on 2020/09/29 18:25
You can do a bit of changes a bit more bits and pieces it’s great a very good game the age though is including I thought it would be be like 12 years old but my friends love this app I quite boring but typically awesome pls do a update this is very indispensable and it’s royal and loyal I’m 45 years old this game is awesome
Stuck/won’t update
by Chico Cheb on 2020/07/30 09:02
Last 2 weeks this app has tried to update but just gets stuck. Spinning loading icon, but never updates. Have been using this for years with no problems but just recently seems too keep sticking on update. Other than that the app still works fine.
Default upload folder change missing
by Ssotyi on 2019/05/07 23:03
I've been using Dropbox for around 7 years. And I can't believe I still have to manually struggle with all my 10k+ photos every time I get a new phone. Simply because I can't change the default upload folder. Like that I could just make a new folder every time I change my phone. And I change it very often.
Essential
by Naz89 on 2019/07/01 10:55
I’ve always use Dropbox for file storage. Would be great if they retained files without losing a bit of resolution. Also please integrate file conversion within the app, I can’t view jp2 file types unless I convert them into jpg. Update: Thank you for your response.
Last Release
by David de Niese on 2020/04/11 15:16
The ability to see how many photos and videos are waiting to upload from my iPhone to Dropbox and how fast the upload is progressing has been removed from the latest release. Please can I have that functionality back. Apart from this it’s a 5 star product.
Too slow.
by deckr8 on 2020/01/27 13:02
The whole Dropbox is too slow particularly when you want to download from it. Most times it places you in a download queue so you can wait up to 10 minutes before it trickles the file to you eventually. After uploading a file it can take another 10 minutes for the system to register the upload on other devices no matter how much you refresh the screen. Not something I would consider paying for in an upgrade.
DROPBox
by hidehi1966-3 on 2020/10/28 18:48
I’ve been using Dropbox for several years now and am more than happy with the convenience it provides. In terms of security, versatility and ease of use, I also can manage my media, work and personal artefacts with confidence... I wish I’d thought of the Dropbox idea!.. Robert AWERE - Author/Publisher
It would be nice if I could read the file names
by Kirky29 on 2018/12/19 12:16
It would be nice if you could resize the side bar so you can read the file names. I know it scrolls, but it takes time and doesn’t feel productive at all. Or maybe an option to hide the preview screen and just have it as a file browser until you tap on a file... Other than that it’s a good app.
The primary place for important documents
by DrTHe777 on 2020/04/17 09:36
I have been using Dropbox around ten years? I use this to store my important scanned documents and thesis and very rare information. Hope it can give more space for free users before they are committed to pay.
