Features: • Automatically back up the photos and videos in your camera roll—all in the background. • Access any file in your account—even offline—and preview over 175 file types, no special software required. • Easily share large files by copying and pasting a link you can send to anyone, even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. • Scan documents using your camera, and turn receipts, documents, whiteboards, and notes into PDFs. Sign up now for your free Dropbox Plus trial. You'll have room for all your files, and space to spare, with 2,000 GB of storage. Our latest sync technology can automatically move stale items off your computer and to the cloud. And Dropbox Rewind lets you roll back any file, folder, or your entire account, up to 30 days.

Before starting a trial or completing payment, you’ll see the plan price. This amount will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase and on renewal and will vary by plan and country. Dropbox subscriptions renew monthly or yearly, depending on your plan. 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. You can turn off auto-renewal anytime time from your iTunes account settings. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your account settings on the App Store after purchase.

Battery drain?
by JammyR on 2020/07/02 06:02
I’ve always valued Dropbox. However since the new update over the last 24 hours it has continually drained the battery on my iPhone. What is going on??
Will not update
by domfairlie on 2020/07/01 06:38
The latest release will not download and update from the App Store. Just hangs. Have turned phone off and on again and still will not update. Please resolve soonest.
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.
What have they broken...
by Bonzai1888 on 2020/06/26 19:19
...Last week I was able to create a zip file on my ipad, upload to Dropbox, this week I just keep getting a failed message all the time. I am paying for 2 tb of storage but if I can no longer do this then it is time to cancel my sub.

Infuriatingly unintuitive
Indispensable
by jimmybedford on 2020/06/24 21:56
I use Dropbox for work and it’s been so useful for sharing and storing files.
It never backs up my photo or videos
by DT40592 on 2020/06/21 19:53
i have selected all the option, wifi and roaming data but nothing gets backed ip from my iPhone. So i go in manually and it start to upload and stops when the screen lock come on. Takes forever and been an issue for years!! Why is there a fix for this?
Log in confusion
by Mfletch007 on 2020/06/19 08:09
Tried to log in to my account but my old password didn’t work so I reset it via the email link I was sent. Every time I tried to log back in with my new email it failed! Downloaded google drive instead. Worked first time 👍
Does not work with Apple Files app or with Spotlight search
by Capdoc on 2020/06/18 20:43
Searching for Dropbox files using Spotlight search function or Apple Files app on iPhone or iPad does not work - please stop ignoring this Dropbox!
Time to say goodbye
by DeejieTheGreat on 2020/06/17 08:50
I championed Dropbox to friends family my team... It was the world leader But the ease simplicity and transparency slowly eroded imho so that its unfortunately time for my relationship with the app to come to an end. Why? The last two times I've needed to use it it's let me down (for two different reasons) and I just can't afford wasting time at the moment... So long it's been fun. Hello OneDrive how you doing?
Great app
by somewhereincolchester on 2020/06/15 12:19
Really happy with the whole Dropbox system
Let us manage size and get better at background upload!
by daimosmj on 2020/06/13 10:20
- There is no way (at lest I don’t see it) to manage how much space Dropbox van take on my device. Dropbox is currently taking 42gb on my iPad Pro. - cannot upload large files if the app is not open? It takes forever to upload videos even on my fast WiFi connection. Plus I need to keep the app open while uploading so I cannot use my iPad during that time?
Great back up and memory keeper
by Timeuser43 on 2020/06/12 23:44
Back most of my important files and pics on drop box. Easy to connect and great for filing my documents.
Took £9.99
by dibsta! on 2020/06/08 18:18
Took £9.99 not even subscribed but took £9.99 can’t get refund. Would not 1 star but have to put something.
Used to be a great app!
by Flash__Gordon on 2020/06/07 12:46
Spent years recommending to build up a useful amount of storage and now they limit to 3 devices - I send in my iPad for repair as it needed a new battery and now I can’t use Dropbox on it - Ridiculous and so expensive for the paid version compared to other services - AVOID companies that change the rules like this to extract money - BAD NEWS! Angry user!
Fantastic App
by JulTimes2011 on 2020/06/06 20:32
Love Dropbox, it’s so straightforward and easy to use.

Problem

It’s telling you I’m allowed three devices and won’t let me in, but I’m only using two devices.
Lack of space
by Helicopter185 on 2020/06/03 13:13
I have nothing stored in Dropbox personally which amounts to anywhere near the free limit. I require Dropbox to access my employer’s account via a link. I continually get a message informing me that I have exceeded my limit. Pretty poor organisation.
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.
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.
Excellent tool!
by Plyy218 on 2020/05/27 14:44
Very useful tool can’t live without
Absolutely kills my iPad battery life on PDFs
by TheBigManlyGuy on 2020/05/26 17:37
This is a good app, and one of the things I use it for most is reading PDFs on my iPad. However, this seems to drain the iPad battery very quickly.

App been working fine until now clicked on sync in keepass to sync with Dropbox but database disappeared from both??
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.

Used to be good, now unreliable
by Marlon*3 on 2020/05/13 12:52
I’ve used Dropbox for years, mainly for storing and sharing audio files. However, recently I’ve noticed that a lot of files I copy/share to my Dropbox folder have noticeable glitches and audio dropouts, which is very frustrating, not to mention embarrassing when I’m trying to send files to clients with these faults.
Office compatibility
by Cherieston on 2020/05/11 20:24
Recommendation - Word, Spreadsheets documents do not open in the new ‘Office’ app via Dropbox.
Disappointed
by jamillysueth on 2020/05/11 01:21
Very disappointed as I downloaded the app to see the free trial of plus and I got charged.
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.
Love it!
by Silverfox22 on 2020/05/09 16:30
So useful for sharing photos and videos with friends
Can’t find dark mode
by Tony-iPad on 2020/05/07 14:51
I only updated for the dark mode option and I can’t find where to switch it on.... UPDATE: I have been contacted by the developer to say that dark mode is only available on IOS13. Pity that, cos I am running iOS 12 on my device and don’t want to update. How about making a dark theme for the app for all versions of IOS? Thanks
Good

A very clunky app that has not moved forward in any discernible way since its inception. Dropbox had a first mover advantage that is appears to be tragically squandering

Doesn’t display a waveform for audiofiles like in the website. This would be very useful. Doesn’t properly display full file names when browsing. Long filenames could scroll...

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.
Love it
by Redali24 on 2020/04/16 15:40
I love Dropbox. I can access all my documents whenever and wherever I need them. Lots more features too.
R off
by R off on 2020/04/12 12:30
Subscribed to Dropbox for a free 30 day trail and been charged straight away. Apple say this is due to a subscription fee. Very misleading!!
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.
Most useless app I’ve ever had the misfortune of using.
by kelloxjello on 2020/04/03 18:12
Slow, clunky and just as bad on PC as it is on phone app. Videos don’t even LOAD to play, let alone download. I can’t even bare the free trial, it’s hilarious to imagine PAYING for this garbage.
The mobile version is awful
by eppi on 2020/04/02 19:30
It takes ages to upload, regardless of Wi-fi or 4g.

How do I cancel this thing??
by Discoblackmagic on 2020/03/25 07:16
Once you go to a plus account it’s incredibly difficult to cancel, no clear cancellation link in your account. I’m still trying to cancel it now before I get charged and stuck in a loop of clicking on various links

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.
Review
by Dropdropbox on 2020/03/15 20:33
I need to use Dropbox only 3 times a year when I go to meetings for a particular society. I used to be able to read the documents on the website but now they are unreadable on the site and I have to use the app. I don’t need to keep any of these files once the meetings are over. I use Google for my photos and don’t want to link these or pay for a business account.
Filthy tactics.
by RobOfKent on 2020/03/15 13:23
I never signed up for Plus trial. Now trying to cancel but there is no option in the app nor through Apple subscriptions. Disappointing business practice.
Photos being rotated when syncing
by Faze101 on 2020/03/09 11:29
I’ve been using Dropbox for many years and I’m a big fan. I especially like the photos auto syncing functionality. But recently the app had been rotating my photos when syncing so they are appearing upside down compared to the photos app. The only way I seem to be able to fix it is to manually edit them and manually upload them individually. Really frustrating.
An excellent tool
by WalkingPreacher on 2020/03/07 14:56
A perfectly excellent tool for all graphic artists, authors, writers and editors!
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.
Amazing

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.
Yanai
by Yanai Sharabi on 2020/03/04 20:26
The app is good, have been using it since 2011. I’m just a bit disappointing that you only get 50gb free and have to pay monthly. Overall good app

by Sp0ng3h on 2020/02/25 11:38
App is ok but the 3 device limit is too crippling. I’ve been with Dropbox since the beginning but now just use google and one drive. Shame.
Drop box is expensive
by Tikah85 on 2020/02/25 07:16
Drop box should give us more price plan as apple iCloud does in terms of difference space capacity and prices to make it affordable for everyone. I will rate it 5***** only then
There’s a problem here
by mupet0000 on 2020/02/23 22:53
Dropbox used 23 hours background activity! I wondered why my battery was worse. The thing is, I haven’t opened the Dropbox app or used Dropbox for months! What on earth was it doing?
Supports only 3 devices
by WeizenKoenig on 2020/02/21 21:38
Dropbox now supports only 3 devices.... how poor. They are pushing for the paid subscription.
Twenty five minutes to upload size photos.
by Sammmmmmmmmmmmmp on 2020/02/20 11:12
See Dropbox website, apparently it’s always users speed. It’s not. 4g connection. Up to google drive in seconds. Try drop box 25 minutes. Don’t bother.
Large and useless
by Alex Brazier on 2020/02/19 22:43
What makes this app 208MB?!??!? I’m just trying to view a shared folder, then it forces me to download the app, then it tells me I can’t view it because I don’t have enough storage space. Why does that matter? I just want to view what has been shared with me, not pay for you to store it twice.
Many apps get better, this gets worse
by Nkersov on 2020/02/19 11:47
Dropbox must be coded by idiots. The current version makes it very tricky get a reliable download. 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
10 years on STILL no improvement
by Badw0lf on 2020/02/11 23:36
OMG I need to create an album and add to it several photos/videos from across the years in the upload folder and I STILL have to do each one one at a time! Why oh WHY have you still not made it possible to select all the photos to be moved and move them to a folder all in one go. I cant believe in all these years such a basic function is STILL not available. SORT IT OUT WE PAY YOU ENOUGH!!!
Confliected copies issue
by riccardo nucci on 2020/02/09 12:49
I have always used Dropbox and I absolutely love it. It has been my favourite solution for cloud storage. Unfortunately, it is completely unusable with the pages on iPad. When I work on pages document stored in Dropbox (and I assume this applies to Numbers and Keynote as well), a huge number of conflicted copies of the working document are created and store in the same directory. This makes the apps practically unusable with pages on the iPad. Apparently the issue is caused by the autosave in Pages. I have searched for solutions to this issues online but apparently there are none. Please Dropbox team fix this issue. Otherwise, I will sadly stop using Dropbox. Thanks Riccardo
Meh

It’s okay, don’t use it much
Frustrating
by Sugar Mice on 2020/01/28 23:24
Syncing with Dropbox works okay but a nightmare if you want to upload files. It’s incredibly slow. Also, if you are trying to import a file from another app, Dropbox doesn’t work in the background and if your phone goes to screen lock the action is cancelled and you have to start again! I’ve given up trying to import files because of this.
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.
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

They make it purposely difficult to cancel trial period
by givingup on 2019/12/26 18:13
Be warned. They make it confusing and difficult to cancel the free trial for the pro Dropbox. Sneaky. So for this reason I refuse to join them. Surely this kind of business practice should be illegal.
How can I use this with Facebook?

Can’t open files anymore
by raf225 on 2019/11/16 22:09
Used to be great. Now the loading wheel spins endlessly without ever loading my files, even text files as small at 5 kB.
Large irritating bug but apart from that it’s ok.
by Alluicious on 2019/11/15 09:56
For a start, I can’t contact support from the iPhone app. Even if I'm logged into the app, when you finally find how to contact support, it asks you to log in (even though you’re logged in and can see your files). THE FIRST BUG . Another app on the iPhone inserts colons into the file names before uploading them to Dropbox. Windows can’t see such a file due to the faulty filename. those faulty files jam up the Dropbox app when you want offline viewing, and so the downloading for offline viewing stalls there and goes no further and can’t refresh or update other files, so the whole thing grinds to a halt without any indication to the user as to why. A bug. I’m talking to Dropbox about this. Anyway main points of failure due to this bug: 1). Deleted files from root of Dropbox folder are still showing, and even openable, after they’ve been deleted months ago on all desktop and laptop sync’d Dropbox folders 2). Offline files: never does download more than a few of them to the device even after months of waiting. I’m always on Wifi, I regularly press refresh on them, and yet still I get the blue refresh button which does nothing except offer to update (but it simply doesn’t, despite being a minuscule file and plenty of Wifi) or the yellow exclamation mark which refuses to clear or do anything, ever. In the settings page on the app it claims only eight files have been downloaded for offline use even though I’ve got hundreds green-ticked as locally stored. And still there’s a yellow warning sign on one folder saying “2 files might not download” and yet none of them are downloading, because it’s stalled. And on other folders I’m offered a blue pair of circles “refresh to update” icon which does nothing - again because it’s stalled So basically even one single file that it can’t download stalls the whole system! you have to track down that file and remove it from offline viewing, which might be very hard, and then keep watching all the time for the next stall, and resolve that manually.... and be in danger of a non-updated file being seen on your device. in other words the offline viewing part is completely unreliable. Come on Dropbox, fix this bug, it’s been years now. Update: email on 14-11-2019 they say they are aware of the bug and will notify me when it’s fixed.
Awful
by dean G range ER on 2019/11/10 01:07
It's a scammed account
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!!
Account restriction work around
by Microsoft dont like apple on 2019/04/22 13:10
The app has been updated 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 by 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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 !
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Multiple file saving
by CoolGuyInn on 2019/04/17 08:27
I love Dropbox, but one thing that irks me is that I can’t select multiple photos in the Save to Dropbox feature on my iPhone. I have to save them one at a time. Not too onerous, but it would be handy to save all the photos at once.
10 years on STILL no improvement
by Badw0lf on 2020/02/11 23:36
OMG I need to create an album and add to it several photos/videos from across the years in the upload folder and I STILL have to do each one one at a time! Why oh WHY have you still not made it possible to select all the photos to be moved and move them to a folder all in one go. I cant believe in all these years such a basic function is STILL not available. SORT IT OUT WE PAY YOU ENOUGH!!!
Great but ......?
by Earny007 on 2019/06/25 20:33
Thanks for your response, unfortunately I’ve signed up to MS OneDrive which also works flawlessly and 1tb of space plus office 365 for better price (multiple devices - not 3) also and have Apple iCloud so don’t need all subscriptions. Great app that works (on the whole) flawlessly. But, is it me or is the price for upgrading to the paid version absolutely nowhere to be seen - until after you’ve clicked the upgrade button? ....
Very handy
by Noisy aeroplane overhead on 2018/10/16 17:14
However, could you introduce the option to see contents across the whole app screen rather than just as a list (ie. folders) Sometimes its not easy to find the folder I want as files are grouped by date!
How do I cancel this thing??
by Discoblackmagic on 2020/03/25 07:16
Once you go to a plus account it’s incredibly difficult to cancel, no clear cancellation link in your account. I’m still trying to cancel it now before I get charged and stuck in a loop of clicking on various links
Can’t find dark mode
by Tony-iPad on 2020/05/07 14:51
I only updated for the dark mode option and I can’t find where to switch it on.... UPDATE: I have been contacted by the developer to say that dark mode is only available on IOS13. Pity that, cos I am running iOS 12 on my device and don’t want to update. How about making a dark theme for the app for all versions of IOS? Thanks
Let us manage size and get better at background upload!
by daimosmj on 2020/06/13 10:20
- There is no way (at lest I don’t see it) to manage how much space Dropbox van take on my device. Dropbox is currently taking 42gb on my iPad Pro. - cannot upload large files if the app is not open? It takes forever to upload videos even on my fast WiFi connection. Plus I need to keep the app open while uploading so I cannot use my iPad during that time?
Photos being rotated when syncing
by Faze101 on 2020/03/09 11:29
I’ve been using Dropbox for many years and I’m a big fan. I especially like the photos auto syncing functionality. But recently the app had been rotating my photos when syncing so they are appearing upside down compared to the photos app. The only way I seem to be able to fix it is to manually edit them and manually upload them individually. Really frustrating.
The new version of the app is AWFUL
by FR15BY on 2018/10/20 16:33
I am so annoyed at Dropbox for changing the app. It’s absolutely horrendous. It used to be amazing. I could scroll through the latest photos people put on the Dropbox and they’ve completely taken away that option, when trying to find folders it just takes FOREVER to load and it used to be so quick and it freezes constantly. Really really poor user experience
In no sense user friendly
by Helen_J on 2018/07/23 19:29
I already have the app downloaded. I go to a link to some files shared by someone else. All it wants me to do is ‘download the app’ despite me already having it and being logged in. When you do get in, none of the new files from the link are there. Absolutely infuriating and completely defeats the purpose of why you’re using it.
Camera Upload
by MaxMWood on 2019/04/16 05:45
The camera upload feature needs a lot of work. Unreliable. Background uploading often stops working. Need ability to manually set start upload date. Need ability to do background uploading without location services. At the moment feels like a weak addon. Considering moving to google photos.
Generally great
by Coolnfunky on 2018/09/04 18:36
Simple and easy to use. Only complaint is the link sending. Sometimes I just want to send the file directly, and the app only wants to send links. Rather limiting, as big corporate organisations often block Dropbox links.
Flaky and buggy no support
by Kent England UK on 2019/11/05 08:54
I purchased a subscription to this and have never been able to upload iPhone photos to it on the Dropbox app. It just hangs CONSTANTLY. I’ve tried their online chat help all I get are inane suggestions like check your wifi connection etc. Then they pass it off via email ticket to some other team who NEVER get back to you! Awful awful buggy app and impotent pointless support.
Frustrating
by Sugar Mice on 2020/01/28 23:24
Syncing with Dropbox works okay but a nightmare if you want to upload files. It’s incredibly slow. Also, if you are trying to import a file from another app, Dropbox doesn’t work in the background and if your phone goes to screen lock the action is cancelled and you have to start again! I’ve given up trying to import files because of this.
Used to be good, now unreliable
by Marlon*3 on 2020/05/13 12:52
I’ve used Dropbox for years, mainly for storing and sharing audio files. However, recently I’ve noticed that a lot of files I copy/share to my Dropbox folder have noticeable glitches and audio dropouts, which is very frustrating, not to mention embarrassing when I’m trying to send files to clients with these faults.
Not what I remember.
by AsLowAsHugo on 2019/07/01 20:40
I used to use Dropbox years ago and found it to be really easy, intuitive and reliable. Now, after two days of trying to upload and share a 46mb PDF I’ve given up - it just will not upload. No connection issues, no other problem on the device. Just does not do what it is supposed to. IOS device - maybe just affecting me but has put me off I’m afraid.
Dropbox ripoff
by DeeSin on 2019/07/22 18:18
I was forced to download the Dropbox App as someone had put pictures on for me. I took the offer of the free version just to try it out but then decided that I didn’t really want it. I cancelled the subscription and advised Dropbox that I was cancelling. However, I received an email the other day saying my payment had failed. STOP TRYING TO TAKE A PAYMENT- IT’S BEEN CANCELLED and I certainly would not recommend to anyone else!
