Drop Box

Great easy to handle unlike Apple
Photo convenience
by Suebec on 2020/03/29 09:35
Easy way to access my photos on laptop and phone, very pleased.
Great

This app is amazing, my whole choir uses it all the time. Great work!
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

Easy storing of photos
by Sue Banks on 2020/03/20 21:01
I find it easy to use.
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
Latest update a disaster
by Jugles234 on 2020/03/04 13:00
Very unstable now with latest upgrade having worked smoothly for years. Urgently need to sort out app stability with an update

Dropbox is very good. Quite happy with it.
Average
by MsRS77 on 2020/02/28 02:52
You are not getting any money from me. Three devices only for basic Dropbox? No problem, as l have 150 gbs storage space on OneDrive, plus tons of other storage space on other Cloud apps. Keep your Dropbox 🤣
Brilliant App

Excellent app Thank you Kim
Version 178.2
by Elfbairn on 2020/02/26 15:02
Won’t download.
Device limit crippling
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
by It's ya boi not really on 2020/01/29 09:24
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
RIP off
by jrc69£9 on 2020/01/21 02:33
I was offered I trial period with an option to cancel , I’ve tried cancelling this nightmare mare app , in the end I had to cancel my card to stop it taking money and I’m still getting messages of failed payment , it’s put me right off paying for apps through apple
Great app works well across all platforms
by Darreng0506 on 2020/01/11 16:49
Great app no issues with it. Would be nice though if the photos part of the app had a little more functionality, crop, rotate images etc and if it would be easier to move items into subsequent folders from within photos section as opposed to having to go via camera uploads section. Also would be nice to be able to select items just by dragging your finger as opposed to having to click each individual item.

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?
by Rosedenebridal on 2019/12/22 16:52
I’ve tried free Dropbox, Dropbox Plus and now Dropbox Business yet whenever I post on my business page in Facebook I can’t access my photos on Dropbox! Why not?
Dropbox Issue
by Lengmui yanny on 2019/12/13 13:01
Hello Dropbox, I cannot sign out, report my issue with my account or delete same files on my Dropbox when I’ve just applied for a free two week trial of more storage this week. What is wrong with your Dropbox via phone?
Please support lower versions of iOS!
by Dr Lingus on 2019/12/08 21:43

Great app until recently, no upload
by Umarm07 on 2019/12/06 09:41
Have always loved the Dropbox app and found it so helpful for university life. But recently I have noticed a problem where I can not upload any file or photos to my Dropbox from my iPhone or iPad. Fix this please!!
Good but could be better.
by Belinda 80! on 2019/11/25 16:06
Now this is the problem,I have to download Microsoft Word,PowerPoint and Excel to make them.I downloaded PowerPoint.Good app to store files I say.I would give it 4/5 for the theming,storage,files and logo.Could be better.Would be better with Google Drive.I’m a little bit unsure if it is good or not.😐.
Change it back
by Deb61uk on 2019/11/19 21:18
What on earth have you done with the latest upgrade, please change it back. I want to be able to find my files and I don’t want Dropbox moving my photos around to different places and using up my space
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.

by ncoops on 2019/11/07 00:00
So, Dropbox stops working on my iPad. Re-install - as suggested - and now it says I have too many linked devices and will have to pay to re-add my iPad. Crooks! The beauty of Dropbox was that it worked seamlessly and was free, with some reasonable limitations. Not any more. Now I’ll have to struggle to make Microsoft’s truly appalling OneDrive work for me instead. Pity that Dropbox is going to gradually lose all of its fans...
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.
Disappointed of late
by alvytek on 2019/10/31 08:57
I am so disappointed with dropbox, with each upgrade it just gets worse. The problem is with file syncing - Ive been waiting about 3 weeks for some files to sync on my devices. I have 2TB dropbox account on 3 devices :- a Mac on Fibre Broadband, iphone XR and ipad pro ALL signed in to Dropbox. Ive also enabled syncing using mobile data as i have a ton of it. It seems that the more files i load on to dropbox the worse it gets. I can see the blue circles with stationary white arrows, according to the sparse support Documentation the arrows are supposed to be circling but on my devices they are stationary. My dropbox seemed to work fine when a small number of Files were loaded but the more files I load up it just gets S L O W E R to a STOP. I can understand maybe a hour or so for a large number but files, but this is getting ridiculous for a system that should be so easy to use. My only option now is to delete all my files on Dropbox
Cancelling free trial
by qpdj nfhroednbg on 2019/10/29 11:17
I cancelled my free trial to Dropbox plus within the 30 day trial and received an email from Dropbox confirming cancellation, but because I had purchased through App Store still got charged until I cancelled my subscription in App Store. Not explained at time very disappointed.
Worst ever cloud Storage ‘box’
by poocin on 2019/10/27 12:46
Dropbox used to be wonderful. Then the bean counters stepped in and ruined it, like so many productivity apps. Reducing the amount of free capacity, reducing the offline capability, and essentially restricting its usability with its counter intuitive flow. It now doesn’t work frankly. There are thankfully much better ones. Try PCloud for start.
Can no longer attach files to Outlook since iOS 13

Terrible upgrade
by Jasmine Carne on 2019/10/14 14:54

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

by Dr scribbles on 2019/09/23 11:58
I’ve used Dropbox for over ten years and it never lets me down. I just wish it had a cheaper option for the 250-500 GB range - It’s a big leap from 5gb to 2TB! But that aside it’s far and away the best cloud file saving and sharing service out there.

Audio issue?
by Eo.29 on 2019/09/08 11:11
Dropbox is my go to file sharing service, however I’ve recently noticed that the audio quality on sound files have been reduced drastically. As a music producer this leaves me no other choice but to switch platforms, a shame as i have been using dropbox for years. Eddie
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!
With device limit am now leaving
by ScatmanWalks on 2019/09/01 19:46

Fallen hero
by allibloo on 2019/08/27 11:00
The app is fine, my review is more a note on Dropbox in general. Been using Dropbox since it first launched and for all but perhaps the last couple of years I’ve been happy with it. It’s pricepoint for storage just isn’t competitive with the very good alternatives that has risen up around it which offer similar (& sometimes better) functionality. I have now moved my storage off the platform & will be winding my account down.
Only 3 devices - why?
by FormerDropboxUser427 on 2019/08/24 12:03
The free version has been changed and now only allows you to install Dropbox on 3 devices. The paid version is more expensive than Microsoft One Drive and the latter offer includes Office Apps. I will be moving to One Drive. I understand that they need to charge but the cost is way too much for what Dropbox offers.
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.

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.

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!
Cancelling is a nightmare.

Suddenly restricted to 3 devices
by TiredPhDstudent on 2019/07/05 05:43
I’m a student, I have a number of computers connected to Dropbox for my work, as I have different laptops / desktops for different things at work and then my own computer. Had Dropbox for years, referred a load of people during the space race etc. Thought I’d install the app just to read some stuff on my iPad, but suddenly it wants me to only have 3 devices connected to Dropbox?? No, I’ll just use the website. Useless and pointless.
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.
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.
Limited access
by Mac>PC=True on 2019/06/28 08:40
Had Dropbox for years and got extra data by encouraging friends and colleagues to join to now have my access limited to three devices. Great way to reward loyalty.
Simple and effective
by DubDubDan on 2019/06/28 00:40
Sync files from almost every OS. What more do you need.
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? ....
Great with one single flaw
by Sami Kilich on 2019/06/24 22:53
Hi Team, Dropbox is essential, is has been for years but always been limited with the storage. 1tb is the minimum but I just don’t need that much. Why not offer a lower tier, 500gb or even 200gb. My life takes up about 10gb in files and about another 100gb or so in picture and videos. I would must appreciate it if Dropbox could look into a cheaper and more beneficial storage option. Thanks,
Great for Photo Sharing
by Blathers77 on 2019/06/24 15:25
I use Dropbox to share images with clients and find it great for this purpose. Full resolution images shared seamlessly and easy to use.
I want to cancel my subscription
by Samantha17. on 2019/06/17 13:45
I’m trying to cancel my subscription. I purchased the app from App Store and I’m fallowing all the steps for the cancellation but when I have to select an option I don’t have the option of CANCEL!!!! Any advice ??
Update broken in files
by Positive Pete on 2019/06/17 07:16
I don’t know what happened but it appears in the last June 2019 update it broke access in the files! Something to rectify dropbox!
RIP off
by straightwhiteguy on 2019/06/16 21:37
They charge £10 per month to use this app, what a rip-off.
Used to be great
by Peter Piper's Pickles on 2019/05/25 05:22
I’ve used this app for years and was very happy, but the removal of sync to all devices feels a bit scammy. Now researching other services.

Devices update
by Yello Yezzo on 2019/05/23 22:44
This new “only three devices” malarkey has ruined the app experience for me. Having 5 devices that regularly need logging into makes for a lot of hassle but for the amount I actually have stored, it is not worth me paying the small fortune it costs to go premium. Oh well
Latest version removes a lot of useful and long-standing functionality
by benspicer on 2019/05/21 17:10
For example, it’s now not possible to save files locally on your phone any more so that you don’t need internet to access them.. a long standing feature. Unless you now pay £8.99 a month! Thanks Dropbox.
Disappointed of late
by alvytek on 2019/10/31 08:57
I am so disappointed with dropbox, with each upgrade it just gets worse. The problem is with file syncing - Ive been waiting about 3 weeks for some files to sync on my devices. I have 2TB dropbox account on 3 devices :- a Mac on Fibre Broadband, iphone XR and ipad pro ALL signed in to Dropbox. Ive also enabled syncing using mobile data as i have a ton of it. It seems that the more files i load on to dropbox the worse it gets. I can see the blue circles with stationary white arrows, according to the sparse support Documentation the arrows are supposed to be circling but on my devices they are stationary. My dropbox seemed to work fine when a small number of Files were loaded but the more files I load up it just gets S L O W E R to a STOP. I can understand maybe a hour or so for a large number but files, but this is getting ridiculous for a system that should be so easy to use. My only option now is to delete all my files on Dropbox
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.
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!!
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!
Great app works well across all platforms
by Darreng0506 on 2020/01/11 16:49
Great app no issues with it. Would be nice though if the photos part of the app had a little more functionality, crop, rotate images etc and if it would be easier to move items into subsequent folders from within photos section as opposed to having to go via camera uploads section. Also would be nice to be able to select items just by dragging your finger as opposed to having to click each individual item.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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
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
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.
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 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
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.
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.
Dropbox is the best
by Karen Com on 2018/05/17 12:10

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.
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.
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.
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.
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? ....
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

They share your files with 3rd parties without consent
by Ordovician on 2019/03/15 15:15
I’ve been using Dropbox for 10 years. Someone I know shared a folder with me, and I accepted. This action changed my entire account into a business account under this third parties admin control. This third party can now see all of my private files. I contacted Dropbox and they informed me that only this third party can change my account back. In the meantime they can see all of my files (none of which did I agree or click to share). This is crazy. A pretty big loophole on how to gain access to someone else’s files. I’m deleting all of my files and moving to Google Drive. I recommend you don’t waste your time with Dropbox.
On going issue
by big bird84 on 2018/07/12 05:07
Can’t seem to upload any pictures to my drop box account straight from my iPhone 7 album via WiFi without an re occurring error message popping up! I can only upload pictures as above but only with 4g/3G data... please fix dropbox!!! 😏😬🤬
Most wanted features.
by OrlandoDude on 2018/11/28 23:46
This last update finally includes the two missing features. Thank you.
Many types of file not available to view
by Byronas on 2018/06/22 05:44
Dropbox is in many ways an excellent tool; it provides an easy way to access files when your desktop or laptop are not being carried. However, it cannot display certain files, especially emails, and so its usefulness is notably restricted.
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
Upgrade time please
by paulhyde on 2019/10/14 21:09
Since new version of iPhone software it’s ridiculously slow when opening files. And when you open excel now the screen sticks all the time. Can we get an update please???
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.
Trying to monetise loyal customers
by ncoops on 2019/11/07 00:00
So, Dropbox stops working on my iPad. Re-install - as suggested - and now it says I have too many linked devices and will have to pay to re-add my iPad. Crooks! The beauty of Dropbox was that it worked seamlessly and was free, with some reasonable limitations. Not any more. Now I’ll have to struggle to make Microsoft’s truly appalling OneDrive work for me instead. Pity that Dropbox is going to gradually lose all of its fans...
Been using Dropbox for 8 years+
by CloudSurfin on 2018/09/02 12:17
Background uploading doesn’t work regardless if I’m connected to WiFi it 4G, either way photos & videos only seem to upload when I open the Dropbox App which is inconvenient. Sort it out please.
Audio issue?
by Eo.29 on 2019/09/08 11:11
Dropbox is my go to file sharing service, however I’ve recently noticed that the audio quality on sound files have been reduced drastically. As a music producer this leaves me no other choice but to switch platforms, a shame as i have been using dropbox for years. Eddie
