Awesome app
Can’t connect to IOS files
by Swebo on 2019/02/14 16:58
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 sued to work well these last couple year fro me.
It works perfectly
by Rcont on 2019/02/14 07:29
I’ve been using the app for quite some time and I never had a problem.
Terrible
by Mattl33661 on 2019/02/09 23:29
After recent update still useless! Can’t download images to my iPhone from Dropbox, can’t even open up support request as there is a problem with that! Won’t accept the drop down box to choose device with issues! Just absolute crap! Time for refund...!!!!
Difficulty in using
by allergictoadverts on 2019/02/05 16:08
Have downloaded this on iMac,iPhone and iPad. Have incoming shared files from 2 sources. Can open and read one but not the other. Very confusing and frustrating. Keep getting use mobile app notice but I already have it. Typical Microsoft.
Pay to use offline
by dthcgeuruehebdueei on 2019/02/02 10:46
Must pay to use your files offline. Something the desktop version does for free.
Okay
by Rx867 on 2019/02/01 16:38
Yeah good and all, very useful, however... why do I have to save photos to my camera roll individually??! Please fix!!
Lost scanned document

Great but ......?
by Earny007 on 2019/01/27 19:06
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? ....
rubbish app
by kate hussei on 2019/01/22 22:55
not keep files and pictures once logging out then logging in then you can’t see all your pictures and file .

Disappointed
by Toma Romero on 2019/01/09 21:31
Awful App, files uploaded onto computer from SD file, File is visible on computer however links to videos are unplayable when shared and files do not show in synced devices. Very disappointed I expected so much more.
App just shuts down.
by Wade McLennan on 2019/01/04 06:29
After the last iPad update the app just shuts down after about 20 seconds. Not good when you use it all the time! Needs a fix ASAP!
Needs improvement!
by JacquesC79 on 2019/01/03 09:43
Can’t upload or download multiple images with Dropbox. Which is really a pain in the *ss. Please make it better useable!! More functional. Not as convenient as it should be. Google Drive has better abilities.
Needs multiple exporting
by kmiah1987 on 2018/12/22 07:26
How can this app have no multiple exporting? Have to export one picture/video at a time from Dropbox to phone. Takes forever when needing to export 100s of pictures.....
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.
Generally awesome, but minor quibbles
by Murkee on 2018/12/19 10:50
I have used dropbox for years, and find it to be great. HOWEVER, I was recently in a position when I needed to get a document to someone whose firewall blocked dropbox (not their choice). No problem (I thought), I’ll send the file attached to an email. A link is sent. A decent default, but no good to me. I had to export to OneDrive, and then “send a copy” from there. A total pain. Dropbox, please let me “send a copy” from iOS.
Doesn’t work
by ssajss on 2018/12/17 19:41
Can’t view PDF docs in the app like I used to. Nothing changed at my end, must be an update.

Lost a lot of pictures
by Colesy478 on 2018/12/08 10:28
Pretty gutted about this app! Thought it was a safe place to store some pictures but they have gone. I did get a couple of emails stating about no usage but I actually thought they were spam and dismissed them. I emailed the help email but no response on a few occasions. I could cry actually as these were pictures of my daughter growing up 😔
Brilliant
by Gsjajxbdhejshdh on 2018/12/03 13:50
Simple, easy and quick to use. Didn’t notice any problems or bugs. Overall, a very nice app.
Doesn’t download
by Davchri1 on 2018/11/29 00:13
Apart from my photos, none of my movie files download from outside of the app, if you ask to download via the app! Don’t accept to do this, as you’ll never be able to download again, it seems! My download bar stands stagnant, with a small image of the file beneath it! And that’s how it stays, Infinitum!
Most wanted features.

Update needed
by CARLITO MAROC BRIGANTE on 2018/11/20 21:06
THERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT ISSUES WITH DROPBOX VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS APP SEEING THAT IM PAYING A MONTHLY FEE.. 1. WHY IS THERE NOT AN OPTION TO SAVE CONTENTS ONTO CAMERA ROLL ON THE IPHONE, I DO NOT WANT TO SAVE EVERY IMAGE INDIVIDUALLY ONTO MY CAMERA ROLL.. 2. THERE SHOULD BE AWAY THAT YOU CAN SELECT THE ENTIRE GALLERY IMAGES WHATEVER TO UPOAD TO THE CAMERA ROLL THIS IS RIDICULOUS THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS FEATURE YOU HAVE REGULAR UPDATES AND I DINT SEE ANY IMPROVEMENTS IN WHAT IM PAYING FOR. 3. SHOULD BE SELECT ALL & SAVE IMAGES TO CAMERA ROLL ON WHATEVER DEVICE ONE HAS.. 4. This is ridiculous I cannot save my images or videos from my Dropbox plus account onto my iPhone gallery I can only do it individually that’s pathetic why is this?
Contrast crashing on iPad Pro
by No-me on 2018/11/18 17:41
I don’t know why but this app now constantly crashes on the iPad Pro and I’ve installed the latest operating system, deleted and reinstalled the Dropbox app but nothing works. Such a pain
Dead slow uploads
by gregg od on 2018/11/16 07:25
I have Dropbox paid. My uploads are uploads are sooooo slow. I have a 50mb line, so it’s not that. It has to be the app or your servers. Since I upgraded to paid its slower than when it was free!!
Camera uploads via mobile data broken m
by lastnicknameimtryinghere on 2018/11/16 00:54
You click an option you expect it to work or why is it there? Camera Uploads via Mobile Data, tick... rick confirm but... nope. ‘Connect to WiFi for camera uploads’... (ō¯¯ō;) It’s been broken for a few versions. I mean I’ve got unlimited data for my phone, it would be nice not to have to manually upload things through mobile data and at least have the basic options function as advertised. If I lose my phone that’s entirely the point in having Dropbox back up my camera roll out the window. The whole purpose of the app: they become the single point of failure you didn’t need and use them to avoid in the first place. They also still (years now this has been an issue) have not activated recover files/view deleted files for the app. It can finally be done on the website but it’s sort of annoying since they don’t seem to have any reason for this honestly. Other than this it’s out of synch too often too long, not for the files (thank god) as each folder loads independently but for example if you run out of space then delete files the website will be updated, no worries, but the app will flat out refuse to reactivate for what is effectively ages considering that you’re in a workflow. Small but massive issues. Other than those 3 (now long standing issues) this app will serve you well until you need to Request Desktop Site and navigate around the app ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I give them 1 star because they know better and can’t seem to be bothered dealing with these issues and never gave or give a good reason as to why these functions are missing or why they haven’t dealt with a simple enough issue. It isn’t very professional and I’ve been premium since 2011. 1 star because it’s beneath them and I took a star off per year we’ve waited for simple things that other apps offered... I consider it very fair of me and a failure of the app development team. Otherwise Dropbox is epic in every other regard. |(ᏉᏉ. )
Latest update have ruined it
by Twin Torque on 2018/11/12 23:20
Latest update with the permanent menu bar down the side reduce the functionality to the point it is unusable with documents in landscape format. Now using another cloud store instead.
Full screen doesn't work for images
by Nickname taken by some One on 2018/10/31 08:00
Dropbox team is not apparently reading user reviews. I reported this several times but it has never been fixed for more than a year. On iPhone 5c, Dropbox doesn't show JPEG images in full screen. Top area is clipped. Very disappointed. Please fix as soon as possible.
Used to be great
by CAClark on 2018/10/26 04:43
For the last few updates now, when navigating files, every folder it sits with the spinning busy indicator and gets stuck, and I have to quit and relaunch the app. It then lists files but next folder, same again. It’s unusually.
Great

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

by tobias944 on 2018/10/18 19:19
Used to be able to read my Arduino files and now cannot. This could be a deal-breaker!
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!
Buggy
by ZeeGee70 on 2018/10/16 11:09
Used this app faithfully for over 10 years. Latest update is very buggy. App locks out. Can not view assets. Not restricted to any one device either, issue is prevalent across multiple devices. Lock outs are so severe they can actually freeze the whole OS!!!
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?
Broken

Works but wastes memory
by Nick_Dec2 on 2018/10/01 18:42
This is a good service but the app is now 232MB download. 😳 Ridiculous. It takes up far too much memory. 5/5 for Dropbox but you need to shrink the app 2/5. 50mb should be plenty.
Not working
by V_Car on 2018/10/01 12:58
After the latest update it stopped working. It crashes and it doesn’t upload pictures at all.

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?
Music playback
by Ellis Slater on 2018/09/25 22:59
It would be really helpful that you work on the music playback. If for example I’m in a folder listening to mixes, would be really great if I could skip back and forth between tracks. Just a simple ‘player’ would be really helpful.
Hmmm
by plasticplanet on 2018/09/24 08:15

Think it’s a bug
by Microsoft dont like apple on 2018/09/22 21:44
I like Dropbox and use it between my laptop and iPad. Since the latest updates on my iPad including ios12 I can’t go backwards when I click into sub folders. I can still use the app by going to the root folder and starting again but it’s a bit of a pain. Hope it gets sorted soon.

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.
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.
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.
Instructions please
by Arthur Baldwin on 2018/08/17 07:31
I would love to be able to upload photos from my ipad but all it wants to doo is connect my computer. I cannot share with my family as I only use my ipad and there is no help menu or instructions on app. we are not all tec gurus .

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.
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!!! 😏😬🤬
Can't export on mobile
by Twentyfour12 on 2018/07/07 15:47
Can't export any files other than photos and if I want to share a file, I can't do it directly - it forces me to create a link to Dropbox. I want to be able to share/export the file itself from Dropbox but that's not an option on mobile

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.

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
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!
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.
Excellent way to keep photos

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!!
Dropbox is great!

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.

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 !

Recently changed my phone from Samsung to iPhone now my Dropbox is suddenly full. I’ve deleted many pictures and It’s still not uploading my new pictures. £79 a year to upgrade is ridiculous when there are other sites out there offering free storage. Thanks Dropbox
Dropbox, not the app is the problem
by NickWB on 2018/04/03 19:03
The app works OK, but sadly Dropbox themselves started abusing customers. Subscribed to a Premium plan for £60ish pa this worked well until DB decided to start pushing existing customers to sign up for the next tier, at increased cost - to do this, they introduced ads and forceful ‘Try this’ persuaders every time I signed into the website. Working alone, the business plan had no value. To further increase pressure, the next step was to throttle upload bandwidth, making everyday working painfully slow. Everything was denied, but with detailed proof to hand it was clear to see. Free only still works.....
ITS STEALING MY MONEY
by Liamcm1 on 2018/03/30 19:52
I deleted it and it is still taking my money :(
Downloading
by Badger435 on 2018/03/30 18:08
Takes an age even to download to my iPad. Can’t seem to do direct download of sound files to iPad. Not great.
Expensive for personal use
by Les-51 on 2018/03/29 16:10
Once you’ve reached free limit there is no alternative cheap rate for personal use. For a business it’s probably fine. Would be good if there was a rate for just photos if other larger files not being shared.
Excellent app ppl love it 😎
by TwistedZeus on 2018/03/21 01:31
I have a great time using this app and majority of the already great functions however.......I have an idea🤔 would it be possible for taking pictures upside down (I didn’t realise when I took my notes 📝 🙈 until I came to take the pic for transfer I had to save it to my iPhone X for me to be able to rotate the picture and save it. Basically I think it would be a good idea 💡to enable rotation within the app 🙏🏻😊. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, James (twistedzeus)
Great
by snaillover55 on 2018/03/09 23:07
Very fast syncing between devices, would be extra awesome if you added chrome cast support for sound, video and picture files
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!
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.
Can’t connect to IOS files
by Swebo on 2019/02/14 16:58
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 sued to work well these last couple year fro me.
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Music playback
by Ellis Slater on 2018/09/25 22:59
It would be really helpful that you work on the music playback. If for example I’m in a folder listening to mixes, would be really great if I could skip back and forth between tracks. Just a simple ‘player’ would be really helpful.
It works perfectly
by Rcont on 2019/02/14 07:29
I’ve been using the app for quite some time and I never had a problem.
Excellent way to keep photos
by dinosaur h on 2018/05/31 19:35
I really enjoy using this. Pity couldn’t take few more photos without additional cost
Lost a lot of pictures
by Colesy478 on 2018/12/08 10:28
Pretty gutted about this app! Thought it was a safe place to store some pictures but they have gone. I did get a couple of emails stating about no usage but I actually thought they were spam and dismissed them. I emailed the help email but no response on a few occasions. I could cry actually as these were pictures of my daughter growing up 😔
Brilliant
by Gsjajxbdhejshdh on 2018/12/03 13:50

Generally awesome, but minor quibbles
by Murkee on 2018/12/19 10:50
I have used dropbox for years, and find it to be great. HOWEVER, I was recently in a position when I needed to get a document to someone whose firewall blocked dropbox (not their choice). No problem (I thought), I’ll send the file attached to an email. A link is sent. A decent default, but no good to me. I had to export to OneDrive, and then “send a copy” from there. A total pain. Dropbox, please let me “send a copy” from iOS.
Full screen doesn't work for images
by Nickname taken by some One on 2018/10/31 08:00
Dropbox team is not apparently reading user reviews. I reported this several times but it has never been fixed for more than a year. On iPhone 5c, Dropbox doesn't show JPEG images in full screen. Top area is clipped. Very disappointed. Please fix as soon as possible.
DRP BOX
by kris; on 2018/06/19 09:48
Dropbox is a life savouries in case you can not find a document on your computer. Always save to Dropbox and keep updated Kris
Needs improvement!
by JacquesC79 on 2019/01/03 09:43
Can’t upload or download multiple images with Dropbox. Which is really a pain in the *ss. Please make it better useable!! More functional. Not as convenient as it should be. Google Drive has better abilities.
Doesn’t download
by Davchri1 on 2018/11/29 00:13
Apart from my photos, none of my movie files download from outside of the app, if you ask to download via the app! Don’t accept to do this, as you’ll never be able to download again, it seems! My download bar stands stagnant, with a small image of the file beneath it! And that’s how it stays, Infinitum!
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?
Terrible
by Mattl33661 on 2019/02/09 23:29
After recent update still useless! Can’t download images to my iPhone from Dropbox, can’t even open up support request as there is a problem with that! Won’t accept the drop down box to choose device with issues! Just absolute crap! Time for refund...!!!!
Can't export on mobile
by Twentyfour12 on 2018/07/07 15:47
Can't export any files other than photos and if I want to share a file, I can't do it directly - it forces me to create a link to Dropbox. I want to be able to share/export the file itself from Dropbox but that's not an option on mobile
Great but ......?
by Earny007 on 2019/01/27 19:06
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? ....
Order

Impossible to create an account
by Hhjnhjnbhhnfdss on 2018/05/22 21:16
Literally impossible to create an account using an iPhone. I filled in the relevant details then clicked ‘create account’, a box then appears informing me I need to do something else. However I cannot see what this is as it’s stuck behind the keyboard!!
Great system

Difficulty in using
by allergictoadverts on 2019/02/05 16:08
Have downloaded this on iMac,iPhone and iPad. Have incoming shared files from 2 sources. Can open and read one but not the other. Very confusing and frustrating. Keep getting use mobile app notice but I already have it. Typical Microsoft.

I tried to upload a video. Failed. Says "uploading" but that line never goes up and starts again. Tried for hours. "Great" app. Please recommend other similar app cos I have a wedding video to share and it's about 20 mins long so the file is too big thanks
Fantastic
by djjizzyjocks on 2018/05/26 08:16
So useful for studying and sharing files with fellow students
Used to be great
by CAClark on 2018/10/26 04:43
For the last few updates now, when navigating files, every folder it sits with the spinning busy indicator and gets stuck, and I have to quit and relaunch the app. It then lists files but next folder, same again. It’s unusually.
Buggy
by ZeeGee70 on 2018/10/16 11:09
Used this app faithfully for over 10 years. Latest update is very buggy. App locks out. Can not view assets. Not restricted to any one device either, issue is prevalent across multiple devices. Lock outs are so severe they can actually freeze the whole OS!!!
Instructions please
by Arthur Baldwin on 2018/08/17 07:31
I would love to be able to upload photos from my ipad but all it wants to doo is connect my computer. I cannot share with my family as I only use my ipad and there is no help menu or instructions on app. we are not all tec gurus .
Disappointed

Awful App, files uploaded onto computer from SD file, File is visible on computer however links to videos are unplayable when shared and files do not show in synced devices. Very disappointed I expected so much more.
Okay
by Rx867 on 2019/02/01 16:38
Yeah good and all, very useful, however... why do I have to save photos to my camera roll individually??! Please fix!!
Latest update have ruined it
by Twin Torque on 2018/11/12 23:20
Latest update with the permanent menu bar down the side reduce the functionality to the point it is unusable with documents in landscape format. Now using another cloud store instead.
Useless
by Grey Fox 1234 on 2018/07/29 15:17
Never able to load / view any shared files. Always comes up with an error saying unable to load files. Deleted app as waste of space. Would be useful if it worked.
Dead slow uploads
by gregg od on 2018/11/16 07:25
I have Dropbox paid. My uploads are uploads are sooooo slow. I have a 50mb line, so it’s not that. It has to be the app or your servers. Since I upgraded to paid its slower than when it was free!!
Works but wastes memory
by Nick_Dec2 on 2018/10/01 18:42
This is a good service but the app is now 232MB download. 😳 Ridiculous. It takes up far too much memory. 5/5 for Dropbox but you need to shrink the app 2/5. 50mb should be plenty.
Terrible
by Hafsah.Omar on 2018/06/17 12:25
Took so many days to back up my photos, app kept crashing, not enough storage space. Photos stopped backing up half way because of this and I lost track of what was backed up and what wasn’t.

THERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT ISSUES WITH DROPBOX VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS APP SEEING THAT IM PAYING A MONTHLY FEE.. 1. WHY IS THERE NOT AN OPTION TO SAVE CONTENTS ONTO CAMERA ROLL ON THE IPHONE, I DO NOT WANT TO SAVE EVERY IMAGE INDIVIDUALLY ONTO MY CAMERA ROLL.. 2. THERE SHOULD BE AWAY THAT YOU CAN SELECT THE ENTIRE GALLERY IMAGES WHATEVER TO UPOAD TO THE CAMERA ROLL THIS IS RIDICULOUS THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS FEATURE YOU HAVE REGULAR UPDATES AND I DINT SEE ANY IMPROVEMENTS IN WHAT IM PAYING FOR. 3. SHOULD BE SELECT ALL & SAVE IMAGES TO CAMERA ROLL ON WHATEVER DEVICE ONE HAS.. 4. This is ridiculous I cannot save my images or videos from my Dropbox plus account onto my iPhone gallery I can only do it individually that’s pathetic why is this?
Contrast crashing on iPad Pro
by No-me on 2018/11/18 17:41
I don’t know why but this app now constantly crashes on the iPad Pro and I’ve installed the latest operating system, deleted and reinstalled the Dropbox app but nothing works. Such a pain
Dead slow uploads
by gregg od on 2018/11/16 07:25
I have Dropbox paid. My uploads are uploads are sooooo slow. I have a 50mb line, so it’s not that. It has to be the app or your servers. Since I upgraded to paid its slower than when it was free!!
Camera uploads via mobile data broken m
by lastnicknameimtryinghere on 2018/11/16 00:54
You click an option you expect it to work or why is it there? Camera Uploads via Mobile Data, tick... rick confirm but... nope. ‘Connect to WiFi for camera uploads’... (ō¯¯ō;) It’s been broken for a few versions. I mean I’ve got unlimited data for my phone, it would be nice not to have to manually upload things through mobile data and at least have the basic options function as advertised. If I lose my phone that’s entirely the point in having Dropbox back up my camera roll out the window. The whole purpose of the app: they become the single point of failure you didn’t need and use them to avoid in the first place. They also still (years now this has been an issue) have not activated recover files/view deleted files for the app. It can finally be done on the website but it’s sort of annoying since they don’t seem to have any reason for this honestly. Other than this it’s out of synch too often too long, not for the files (thank god) as each folder loads independently but for example if you run out of space then delete files the website will be updated, no worries, but the app will flat out refuse to reactivate for what is effectively ages considering that you’re in a workflow. Small but massive issues. Other than those 3 (now long standing issues) this app will serve you well until you need to Request Desktop Site and navigate around the app ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I give them 1 star because they know better and can’t seem to be bothered dealing with these issues and never gave or give a good reason as to why these functions are missing or why they haven’t dealt with a simple enough issue. It isn’t very professional and I’ve been premium since 2011. 1 star because it’s beneath them and I took a star off per year we’ve waited for simple things that other apps offered... I consider it very fair of me and a failure of the app development team. Otherwise Dropbox is epic in every other regard. |(ᏉᏉ. )
Latest update have ruined it
by Twin Torque on 2018/11/12 23:20
Latest update with the permanent menu bar down the side reduce the functionality to the point it is unusable with documents in landscape format. Now using another cloud store instead.
Full screen doesn't work for images
by Nickname taken by some One on 2018/10/31 08:00
Dropbox team is not apparently reading user reviews. I reported this several times but it has never been fixed for more than a year. On iPhone 5c, Dropbox doesn't show JPEG images in full screen. Top area is clipped. Very disappointed. Please fix as soon as possible.
Used to be great
by CAClark on 2018/10/26 04:43
For the last few updates now, when navigating files, every folder it sits with the spinning busy indicator and gets stuck, and I have to quit and relaunch the app. It then lists files but next folder, same again. It’s unusually.
Great

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

by tobias944 on 2018/10/18 19:19
Used to be able to read my Arduino files and now cannot. This could be a deal-breaker!
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!
Buggy
by ZeeGee70 on 2018/10/16 11:09
Used this app faithfully for over 10 years. Latest update is very buggy. App locks out. Can not view assets. Not restricted to any one device either, issue is prevalent across multiple devices. Lock outs are so severe they can actually freeze the whole OS!!!
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?
Broken

Dropbox was brilliant but it is now broken. Please fix.
Works but wastes memory
by Nick_Dec2 on 2018/10/01 18:42
This is a good service but the app is now 232MB download. 😳 Ridiculous. It takes up far too much memory. 5/5 for Dropbox but you need to shrink the app 2/5. 50mb should be plenty.
Not working

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?
Music playback
by Ellis Slater on 2018/09/25 22:59
It would be really helpful that you work on the music playback. If for example I’m in a folder listening to mixes, would be really great if I could skip back and forth between tracks. Just a simple ‘player’ would be really helpful.
Hmmm

by Microsoft dont like apple on 2018/09/22 21:44
I like Dropbox and use it between my laptop and iPad. Since the latest updates on my iPad including ios12 I can’t go backwards when I click into sub folders. I can still use the app by going to the root folder and starting again but it’s a bit of a pain. Hope it gets sorted soon.

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.
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.
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.

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.

by big bird84 on 2018/07/12 05:07

Can't export on mobile
by Twentyfour12 on 2018/07/07 15:47
Can't export any files other than photos and if I want to share a file, I can't do it directly - it forces me to create a link to Dropbox. I want to be able to share/export the file itself from Dropbox but that's not an option on mobile

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.

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
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!
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.

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!!

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.

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, not the app is the problem
by NickWB on 2018/04/03 19:03
The app works OK, but sadly Dropbox themselves started abusing customers. Subscribed to a Premium plan for £60ish pa this worked well until DB decided to start pushing existing customers to sign up for the next tier, at increased cost - to do this, they introduced ads and forceful ‘Try this’ persuaders every time I signed into the website. Working alone, the business plan had no value. To further increase pressure, the next step was to throttle upload bandwidth, making everyday working painfully slow. Everything was denied, but with detailed proof to hand it was clear to see. Free only still works.....

Expensive for personal use
by Les-51 on 2018/03/29 16:10
Once you’ve reached free limit there is no alternative cheap rate for personal use. For a business it’s probably fine. Would be good if there was a rate for just photos if other larger files not being shared.

Basically I think it would be a good idea 💡to enable rotation within the app 🙏🏻😊. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, James (twistedzeus)

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Music playback
by Ellis Slater on 2018/09/25 22:59
It would be really helpful that you work on the music playback. If for example I’m in a folder listening to mixes, would be really great if I could skip back and forth between tracks. Just a simple ‘player’ would be really helpful.
It works perfectly
by Rcont on 2019/02/14 07:29
I’ve been using the app for quite some time and I never had a problem.
Excellent way to keep photos
by dinosaur h on 2018/05/31 19:35
I really enjoy using this. Pity couldn’t take few more photos without additional cost
Lost a lot of pictures
by Colesy478 on 2018/12/08 10:28
Pretty gutted about this app! Thought it was a safe place to store some pictures but they have gone. I did get a couple of emails stating about no usage but I actually thought they were spam and dismissed them. I emailed the help email but no response on a few occasions. I could cry actually as these were pictures of my daughter growing up 😔
Brilliant
by Gsjajxbdhejshdh on 2018/12/03 13:50
Simple, easy and quick to use. Didn’t notice any problems or bugs. Overall, a very nice app.
Generally awesome, but minor quibbles
by Murkee on 2018/12/19 10:50
I have used dropbox for years, and find it to be great. HOWEVER, I was recently in a position when I needed to get a document to someone whose firewall blocked dropbox (not their choice). No problem (I thought), I’ll send the file attached to an email. A link is sent. A decent default, but no good to me. I had to export to OneDrive, and then “send a copy” from there. A total pain. Dropbox, please let me “send a copy” from iOS.
Full screen doesn't work for images
by Nickname taken by some One on 2018/10/31 08:00
Dropbox team is not apparently reading user reviews. I reported this several times but it has never been fixed for more than a year. On iPhone 5c, Dropbox doesn't show JPEG images in full screen. Top area is clipped. Very disappointed. Please fix as soon as possible.
DRP BOX
by kris; on 2018/06/19 09:48
Dropbox is a life savouries in case you can not find a document on your computer. Always save to Dropbox and keep updated Kris
Needs improvement!
by JacquesC79 on 2019/01/03 09:43
Can’t upload or download multiple images with Dropbox. Which is really a pain in the *ss. Please make it better useable!! More functional. Not as convenient as it should be. Google Drive has better abilities.
Doesn’t download
by Davchri1 on 2018/11/29 00:13
Apart from my photos, none of my movie files download from outside of the app, if you ask to download via the app! Don’t accept to do this, as you’ll never be able to download again, it seems! My download bar stands stagnant, with a small image of the file beneath it! And that’s how it stays, Infinitum!
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?
Terrible
by Mattl33661 on 2019/02/09 23:29
After recent update still useless! Can’t download images to my iPhone from Dropbox, can’t even open up support request as there is a problem with that! Won’t accept the drop down box to choose device with issues! Just absolute crap! Time for refund...!!!!
Can't export on mobile
by Twentyfour12 on 2018/07/07 15:47
Can't export any files other than photos and if I want to share a file, I can't do it directly - it forces me to create a link to Dropbox. I want to be able to share/export the file itself from Dropbox but that's not an option on mobile
Great but ......?
by Earny007 on 2019/01/27 19:06
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? ....
Order
by Five hoots on 2018/10/23 09:44
A great and simple way to keep my work and home receipts in order.
Impossible to create an account
by Hhjnhjnbhhnfdss on 2018/05/22 21:16
Literally impossible to create an account using an iPhone. I filled in the relevant details then clicked ‘create account’, a box then appears informing me I need to do something else. However I cannot see what this is as it’s stuck behind the keyboard!!
Great system
by Landrovers on 2018/06/17 16:56
It’s a great system just one thing could do with more space for Free..
Difficulty in using
by allergictoadverts on 2019/02/05 16:08
Have downloaded this on iMac,iPhone and iPad. Have incoming shared files from 2 sources. Can open and read one but not the other. Very confusing and frustrating. Keep getting use mobile app notice but I already have it. Typical Microsoft.

by DonJoeezy PF. on 2018/11/26 10:28
I tried to upload a video. Failed. Says "uploading" but that line never goes up and starts again. Tried for hours. "Great" app. Please recommend other similar app cos I have a wedding video to share and it's about 20 mins long so the file is too big thanks
Fantastic
by djjizzyjocks on 2018/05/26 08:16
So useful for studying and sharing files with fellow students
Used to be great
by CAClark on 2018/10/26 04:43
For the last few updates now, when navigating files, every folder it sits with the spinning busy indicator and gets stuck, and I have to quit and relaunch the app. It then lists files but next folder, same again. It’s unusually.
Buggy
by ZeeGee70 on 2018/10/16 11:09
Used this app faithfully for over 10 years. Latest update is very buggy. App locks out. Can not view assets. Not restricted to any one device either, issue is prevalent across multiple devices. Lock outs are so severe they can actually freeze the whole OS!!!
Instructions please
by Arthur Baldwin on 2018/08/17 07:31
I would love to be able to upload photos from my ipad but all it wants to doo is connect my computer. I cannot share with my family as I only use my ipad and there is no help menu or instructions on app. we are not all tec gurus .
Disappointed
by Toma Romero on 2019/01/09 21:31
Awful App, files uploaded onto computer from SD file, File is visible on computer however links to videos are unplayable when shared and files do not show in synced devices. Very disappointed I expected so much more.
Okay
by Rx867 on 2019/02/01 16:38
Yeah good and all, very useful, however... why do I have to save photos to my camera roll individually??! Please fix!!
Latest update have ruined it
by Twin Torque on 2018/11/12 23:20
Latest update with the permanent menu bar down the side reduce the functionality to the point it is unusable with documents in landscape format. Now using another cloud store instead.
Useless
by Grey Fox 1234 on 2018/07/29 15:17
Never able to load / view any shared files. Always comes up with an error saying unable to load files. Deleted app as waste of space. Would be useful if it worked.
Dead slow uploads
by gregg od on 2018/11/16 07:25
I have Dropbox paid. My uploads are uploads are sooooo slow. I have a 50mb line, so it’s not that. It has to be the app or your servers. Since I upgraded to paid its slower than when it was free!!
Works but wastes memory
by Nick_Dec2 on 2018/10/01 18:42
This is a good service but the app is now 232MB download. 😳 Ridiculous. It takes up far too much memory. 5/5 for Dropbox but you need to shrink the app 2/5. 50mb should be plenty.
Terrible
by Hafsah.Omar on 2018/06/17 12:25
Took so many days to back up my photos, app kept crashing, not enough storage space. Photos stopped backing up half way because of this and I lost track of what was backed up and what wasn’t.
