Totally jacked up my account when Dropbox added back all my deleted folders- for the last 5 years!!! Never fixed it Said they would Told a lie UI is pretty basic and underwhelming. Links are 360 characters long- thank you. they look awesome in text bodies!
Fail!
by RobertDodd on 2017/07/25 20:23
Simply doesn't work anymore. Won't allow me to connect, with the correct login/password. Work allow me to change password when it claims it's incorrect. Basically Dropbox is now just holding my data hostage for $10 per month, in the hope that I maybe, eventually, get access to it again. Use at your own risk.
Great App!
by Apple Product 23 on 2017/07/25 20:20
Dropbox: It is great app to download work or entertainment files into one app it's easy to use and also convenient with the offline mode with my personal experience I have never encountered any problems using the app an easy five star app would totally recommend it to anyone!
I like it
by yeqmaster on 2017/07/24 15:02
I am a bit surprised at the long list of harsh reviews. There are some functionality issues that could use repair, however overall this is a great app and Dropbox is awesome at what it does.

Junk! Don't waist Money!!
by Wi-Fi app 54321 on 2017/07/23 16:19
No live person for support. They collect your money and then threaten to delete your files if you do not log into your account. I have been logged in ever since I paid and opened an account. I deleted the app, try to sign in with my password and they kept saying that it was not correct. The first thing I do is save my email and password when I create an account. I will be looking for another provider.

abysmal app (and i NEVER write reviews)
by lincorruptible on 2017/07/22 21:47
needs to be updated way too frequently and in the last six months i can't seem to use the "open file in dropbox" link without it taking me to the app store and asking me to reinstall the program, i.e. i can no longer open dropbox files *at all*. it's legitimately nuts that programmers get paid $100s of Ks for this—it's literally less functional than the pre-digital predecessor of just scanning books, photocopying them and sending them in the mail. terrible app. use drive or mediafire instead
A bit clunky
by Never given on 2017/07/22 16:42
If you want to log in to another account, you have to delete the app, and re download each time.it gets very tedious.
Melted my phone
by Jer12398 on 2017/07/22 14:54
I decided to download Dropbox to backup some important videos so I could delete them off my phone. Next thing I know Dropbox sponged up all the rest of my free space and burnt my phone to a crisp. My fingers are burning as I type this. My files are not backed up and my phone is full. This app is supposed to back thing up to the cloud, not to your phone. :(
Cannot upload multiple images from Photos.
by Lex Eulitt on 2017/07/22 13:23
No longer able to upload multiple images from Photos app. Only one image per time is being allowed now. Unbelievable....
"Recents" is a huge failure
by Airbossdave on 2017/07/22 04:13
Dropbox was great in the beginning, but not now! Having the app open on the "Recents" tab with no option to clear the list or to choose a different folder to open to is not only a huge inconvenience it's a serious privacy issue. To make matters worse, Dropbox developers do not care that everyone HATES this feature. They've had plenty of time to address it and they just refuse to. DO NOT USE DROPBOX; it's not worth the money.
Major BUG: auto upload of iPhone photos not working...

Esp. happening with video. Keep having to uninstall and reinstall app. I see a bunch of reviews below that ur app is buggy and not working for ppl so...PLS FIX ASAP!!!
I enjoy it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
by Yothatgirlnamedsushiii on 2017/07/20 23:07
It's not the best when I want to upload things it takes forever, however it allows me to save a ton of storage when I need to get rid of photos and videos it doesn't crash or anything I'm pleased
All good here

Saving files offline diesn't work
by Ranagast on 2017/07/17 04:03
App shows available space for downloading offline files to be about a quarter of what should actually be available, and when you take files off it doesn't free up the space. When I contacted their tech support they were patronizing and unhelpful.
Does not upload
by BostonKT on 2017/07/17 02:36
Just downloaded and attempted to upload 10 photos. The app hung in "uploading" state for about an hour with no progress. I canceled the upload and even that took several minutes. Redownloaded the app and tried with 1 photo - no luck. I'm very surprised Dropbox would publish an app with its primary function broken. Very disappointing.

Don't waste your time...
by Nick Namis Taken on 2017/07/16 15:21
This app needs a lot of work... most obvious is some way to LOG OUT after finishing uploads. Stick with the desktop / laptop version unless you really enjoy being stuck in an endless loop of frustration.

Files have no chronological order
by Ashley696977775536 on 2017/07/15 14:33
The app is great to look at files in order if you're continuously scrolling but if you look through then app then come back and try to scroll through the files in order, it don't let you. You end up scrolling through files at random. I have uploaded my workouts to the app so if I go look at one set then come back to look at what I have next, I have to scroll through the files to find the one that was next. It sooo annoying and I don't get the point of having to scroll and get random files. I should be able to come back and go directly to the next file. Please fix this issue !

Thank you for the steady flow of updates. Here's my thoughts
by jharrisonhco on 2017/07/15 03:40
Eropbox must be one of the most "supported by its developers" apps available. There's a really great constant flow of updates which is so so good - so thank you Dropbox Team. I have but one complaint. The syncing time is a bit slow. If there's a way to make that faster, that would be great.
Can't save more than one file at a time. Still.
by sixghz on 2017/07/14 16:18
It's been a while since I reviewed this, and the number one thing I want is to be able to save all my files and photos to my phone a little easier. Is it that hard?
It is no longer possible to use the "open in" iOS functionality
by Nonpotest on 2017/07/14 11:51
The most recent version removed the ability to upload files from other apps to your Dropbox account. You can now only send those files to other people. So if you were using DropBox as your main cloud storage solution and don't want every file to be public, you're out of luck. It is completely ridiculous to require a file to be shared (with an email notification!) in order for it to be uploaded.
Enough with the updates!
by TH1224 on 2017/07/14 06:42
Its nice you want to fix bugs and add new features. But every couple of days? How about every two to three weeks or monthly?

Thank you for adding text editing on iOS!!!
by checker2718 on 2017/07/13 19:17
After using the android Dropbox app for years with its text editing feature, I was dismayed the iOS version didn't have it, especially because iOS is much more restrictive on having other apps edit a given app's files. But it finally got added, thank you!
Great app but time to update/upgrade
by KSuave1911 on 2017/07/13 17:19
I like this app for a variety of reasons for it's ease of use, connecting to devices, and storage. I do wish there were and option to sign into multiple accounts rather than have to go thru the arduous process of logging in and out. There are other apps out there that let users switch between accounts yet Dropbox doesn't allow that as an option.
Won't Display Full File Name in Ipad App
by Bosscrab on 2017/07/13 14:22
The Ipad app will not display the full file name, which makes it impossible to find the file you are looking for. The app needs to have a view mode that lists the files without the huge preview window.
Annoying as hell UX
by Kegels on 2017/07/13 00:55
Dropbox made me download their app in order to view a file online. Terribly frustrating and clearly in service of their bottom line and not my easy usage of their product
Photo auto-upload does not work
by AnApparition on 2017/07/12 17:09
You can select to auto upload photos but then it only actually uploads them if the app is open front and center, not practical at all since it's basically no different than manually uploading photos. Still great for sharing and syncing other files but if you use it mostly for photos, you might want to look elsewhere.

Latest version is a battery killer in background mode
by TDLphoto.com on 2017/07/11 14:20
I've noticed that the latest version has been killing my battery in background mode, eating up close to 28% of my battery life. Also, the scan a doc feature takes forever and I wish you'd make this a stand alone app and function. Lastly, I like the file renaming on scan documents, but I wish there was an option to keep the original file name as well for items that weren't created on the day you happen to be converting a picture to a scan.
Simple & Easy
by LiCa2 on 2017/07/11 07:04
Dropbox is a good way for me to upload pictures from my camera to my computer and then download to my phone. The process is easy and simple.
No camera photos upload
by Smithsailing on 2017/07/11 06:35
Ppl have been complaining for over 2 years that the camera picture upload feature doesn't work. Dropbox refuses to fix this feature. I pay 100 bucks a year for a defective app that is worthless.
Hacked for Ransomware
by Smalltarget on 2017/07/10 15:37
While the convenience of Dropbox is unquestionable, think twice if you use Dropbox to secure the information. One of my folders was hacked by Osiris for ransom and the only response was sorry, was more than 30 days ago, but you could upgrade your service. Used with caution. They clearly have no protections in place to prevent your data from being hacked.

How is there not a select all button?
by Hareemz2012 on 2017/07/09 07:28
This is a very good app. How is it that you leave out something as simple as a select all button? I'm not about to click hundreds of times just to copy an album to my camera roll. That's really quite sad.
Very unintuitive and convoluted
by Zshanif on 2017/07/06 03:33
There is a certain style to how items are usually manipulated in iOS and Dropbox completely disregards that. Deleting a folder is not a swipe leftwards and a tap on "delete", it takes at the least 4 taps (one which involves going into "Folder Settings", which many people would not consider). The only thing that this app has going for it is that iOS supports Dropbox as an upload method; otherwise, there are plenty of more convenient services.
Music and Videos
by I like games yeah on 2017/07/05 05:32
The dropbox app itself is great, but I've found something that really bugs me. I cant directly move music and/or video files from dropbox directly to iTunes without using my computer. I shouldn't have to go through the trouble of using another device to do something that should be easily doable from just one device. A simple file transfer shouldn't require the use of a third party device. Other than that the app is good.
Sharing update much worse
by timster51 on 2017/07/05 03:31
The latest update for sharing is much worse. The interface is difficult to use and not visually appealing. Also it is very slow and constantly crashes. Not what I expect from Dropbox. How much am I paying for this a month?? Help!!!!
Can't live without it

Update: What happened to auto upload?
by mysterygirl75 on 2017/07/04 16:39
Update: There have been one or two updates since I wrote my original review, and these problems still have not been fixed. I have more than a hundred photos waiting to upload, and only three photos have uploaded even after keeping the app opened on the phone for an hour. Ridiculous! Why did you remove the auto upload? I hate having to manually select photos, and then it takes days for them to upload because they will only upload when Dropbox is open and the phone is unlocked. I used to love this service, but, if it stays like this, I will look for something else.

Offline folder
by 305Bound on 2017/07/03 17:48

User of many years and well...
by sleepsss on 2017/07/02 13:48
I know Dropbox isn't a media player, but it would be so great if there were better functionality with audio files. Seeking from the control center, and maybe even repeat functionality would be great. That's something that for many years has been missing from Dropbox. Being able to show and hide your personal Dropbox in the menu would lively things up as well. Just forward thinking ideas.
I mean really?!

by RaddMB on 2017/06/29 23:24
This is one of my favorite and most used apps, but it desperately needs a fix for the "recent" tab. Either a disable feature or at the very least a "clear" option. Please fix ASAP !!
Great app
by victor3862 on 2017/06/29 23:00
Great app. Super fast sync. Just works. The new camera scanner is great, but not as good as the Scannable app. That one still corrects the document better and scans faster. Keep up the good work and hopefully improve the scanner, because it's super useful.
Can't get into my dropbox
by Malificent1 on 2017/06/29 20:36
I have used dropbox for quite a long time then with one of your updates all of a sudden it asked for a pin code of 4 digits. I have no idea what you guys are talking about I never set up a four digit code and I cannot get into my dropbox to see my pictures. I have noticed other people are having the same problem. So what is going on we need some help so we can get into a drop boxes and see your pictures. Could someone from tech-support please respond to this and fix this problem I have sent many emails and messages to you guys to fix this problem for quite some time and it still has not been fixed. Please help thank you.
Excellent app

Don't use for backing up files
by jshanl on 2017/06/29 18:28
I downloaded this app and used it in school to backup files. As well as after to backup files and pictures. This was a HORRIBLE idea. They delete your account if you haven't logged into it in a certain amount of time. When I went to log back into my account it was just gone. I would recommend looking at alternative apps that do not delete accounts without permission.

Text file editing doesn't always work
by patricknh on 2017/06/28 10:44
At a first glance, it appears that version 54.2's text-file editing only works on tiny files. An 867KB .txt file -- that's about the size of a novel -- loads just fine, as ever, but the editing icon doesn't appear. This behavior is the same on my iPhone 7+ running iOS 10.3.2 and my iPad Pro running the public beta iOS 11.
Yet another fantastic update.
by @davidjoelhall on 2017/06/28 04:56
With a recent update, Dropbox included a Text Editor... what seems to be such a simple thing, is finally here. I am replacing nvNotes on my home screen with Dropbox. Dropbox has everything I'll need: - basic font - fast sync - offline support - edit text Thank you for this update Dropbox!
Bloated
by Jc-nickname on 2017/06/28 04:30
Sure seems like feature bloat is going on with this app. Internal text editor?
Bug fix
by ebassily on 2017/06/28 01:15
The app is becoming more and more useful with the features you're adding to it. However, tapping the plus icon and selecting Scan A Document takes forever to open the camera. I just downloaded the latest version you released today, but it didn't take care of that issue yet. Please fix this soon as it's keeping me from using this feature and using Scanbot instead. Thanks
No Export!!
by Steelydanu on 2017/06/28 00:52
You cannot export in bulk or via folders. You have to export each file individually and this is not acceptable when you have hundreds of files!
Rethink
by geescot on 2017/06/27 23:11
Step one: Download from App Store. Step two: You are faced with a login page waiting for a four digit pin.....No other place to click. ???????????? I do have an account with a complex password - but 4 digit pin? Where do I sign up for that? If you sign into your account from a browser there is no opportunity to manage your 4 digit iPhone code there. There is no mention of one there.

Canceling friends' and family members' Dropbox subscriptions
by Jazz Thompson on 2017/06/20 15:35
**Update 5/22/17 -- Dropbox ignores my Tweets and emails asking when iOS Live Photo backup will be available so I have started helping friends and family members cancel their paid Pro subscriptions with the $40 annual Packrat add-on and move to other services like Box and OneDrive for files and Google Photos for pictures.** I was surprised and disappointed this morning when I realized that Dropbox hasn't been backing them up. This is important. As a Pro user who pays for the Packrat add-on, I have high expectations for app development turnaround time and over a year is too long! I will increase my rating to 5 stars once Live Photos backup feature is rolled out because otherwise this app is great.

Dropbox for iPhone: A Good Start
by David Vasquez on 2009/09/29 22:57
After using this app for a brief time, I have found myself wanting to go back to the web interface - and for only one main reason. Photo thumbnails. There don't seem to be any! Unfortunately for me, someone who takes a large number of photos and stores them in his dropbox, this poses a problem which the web interface doesn't have. The ability to view image thumbnails seems like a no-brainer to me. I'm really disappointed that this functionality appears to be missing. The app itself works fine, it does what it says, and I LOVE the ability to send off my photos and videos from anywhere to my computers at home. Major bonus points for that one Dropbox! However, for browsing files, I think I'll be sticking with the web app - at least until photo thumbnails are integrated. It makes it difficult to browse for the photos I'm looking for without them. In addition, it seems a lot of basic functionality of managing files within your dropbox are missing. After reading over their "to do" list, it seems like these things are planned for future revisions - no mention of photo thumbnails, though! Overall, A good start to an app that holds a lot of promise. Unfortunately I can't rate it 5 stars until I can happily delete the shortcut to the web interface from my home screen. If I have to use both, it isn't fulfilling all the needs it should be. It has a lot of room to grow, but the initial release is well worth picking up.
Incredible app!
by madisono on 2016/12/07 21:23
With the world of cloud storage options being so large and growing every day, Dropbox is the standard by which to measure other apps, and I say just apps because it is a standout not only in cloud storage but as an app in general. That being said, my one negative thing to say is that I think the price for a solo user is too high. When I can get 50 GB of iCloud storage for 99 cents a month, and my Adobe Creative Cloud just flat out over triples my cloud storage for free when I called to see about paying for more storage all because I'm a good customer on a regular payment plan. It leaves me in the unfortunate world of a free account Dropbox customer, and I find that depressing because it limits my use of Dropbox and means I'm not financially contributing to what I consider one of the best and most useful apps on the market. If I could offer a suggestion, I feel stupid for assuming I could actually have advice to offer such a forward thinking brand, I would suggest Dropbox look into lower priced plans. Maybe these plans offer limited capabilities or space (For my use a 50GB storage option would be ideal) but another $10 a month auto payment is just too much. Maybe we could pick and choose which features or capabilities we want our Dropbox to have and pay accordingly. Just food for thought for a thoughtful company from a non paying user who wants to be a paying user.
Safest online storage for my writing - w/ Elements it works perfect for me
by ...S.B on 2013/04/19 01:03
It seems that Dropbox is the only online storage server whose user agreement states that Dropbox employees are forbidden from looking at your content, i.e. what's inside your documents, pix, &tc. By contrast, the Google user agreement states they can look through your stuff, use it however they want - that you agree it's cool with you so long as they don't claim ownership. Apple user agreements for online storage have always been vague legalese, so you don't know what they'll do. For my money, that means I'll store in Dropbox & nowhere else until I learn that Apple or Google respects the private sanctity of my stuff a lot more than they do now. As far as using the app, I've a big-screen iMac, an iPhone 5 & an iPad mini. I use a separate linked app, Elements, to write notes & documents into Dropbox on the fly. Some time ago, there were some glitches accessing everything equally on all 3 devices, but the Dropbox & Element developers seem to have cleared all that up. Lately anything I've ever written into Dropbox by way of Elements has been immediately accessible on all 3 devices, so for me it works perfectly. I guess this is kind of a review for Elements also, which I should go & write a review there too. Beyond that, I've shared photos & mp3s easily many times. No complaints.
Awesome embedded "Save to Dropbox" feature on iPhone & iPad!!!
by Angelo Review on 2017/04/26 21:20
I honestly had never used Dropbox until I found the "Save to Dropbox" feature on my iPhone and iPad. Now I love it! You can save the site you are looking at as a PDF file to your Dropbox account from the web browser. You have to have the Dropbox app on your phone and a Dropbox account of course. You will also need to turn the "Save to Dropbox" selection on through web browser settings. It's in the same area you go to print or bookmark a web page. If you don't see it make sure you have the Dropbox app on the device you are using and when going to the area where you would bookmark scroll all the way to the right and there should be a button to select more. It will save the web page to your Dropbox account when you select "Save to Dropbox". Then you can open the Dropbox app and your file with load in as a PDF and you can even continue to save it offline to your device if you wish. Great feature! Just a word of warning, it will save exactly what is displayed on the web page at the time you save it. Meaning, if images aren't loaded for instance, then it will save the page with those images not loaded. Hope this helps!
Dropped In Just In Time
by dj22091 on 2009/10/03 19:16
I ended up downloading this because of the hype. I read from a few places that this new Dropbox app was something to have, and sure enough it is. I've been using Air Sharing for the longest time, mainly because of my school work. When I had a Powerpoint or Word Document to read I'd end up putting it in a folder to view later on the go. The only problem was connecting it to my iMac. There were a lot of different ways to connect Air Sharing to my computer, and while some did work, the majority did not. Dropbox, however, is a different story. I was skeptical at first, but after a few minutes I found that it is really easy to sync Powerpoints and the like to my phone. Just had to install the Dropbox application on my iPhone and my iMac and I was good to go. Now viewing these files over a Wi-Fi or 3G connection had me worried, considering that I may have to wait quite a while to view a Powerpoint at last notice. My worries faded when I saw that you were able to actually downlaod a file to your phone just by adding it as a favorite. It seems everything I had a question for was answered! Truly an awesome app that I will be getting much use out of.
LOVED Carousel...
by marsanchez02 on 2016/04/05 22:05
Carousel was the best app to happen to my phone. When they took it off, I was SUPER disappointed. I never liked using Dropbox itself bc of the terrible layout. Carousel helped delete photos off my phone to open up storage and now I'm scared to delete pictures off my phone because I'm not really sure it's gonna stay on Dropbox. Carousel had a beautiful layout where I could easily find any picture I wanted and it had flashbacks which were always cute to look at what you did the year before. I'm so used to pressing and holding to select multiple pictures. It was super easy to use and I loved it to the moon and back. Dropbox, however, I don't like and I'm not used to. The layout is bad and makes me feel claustrophobic. I never used this app when I had Carousel. NEVER. Dropbox doesn't remove photos from my phone that are safely stored, so yes I'm scared to manually delete them myself. I just don't like using it at all... Carousel was my life when I had it and my favorite app to use. Why did y'all have to shut it down?? If you want to keep your customers, PLEASE put back the Carousel features!! Very sad member. :( Pros- useful to access photos from any computer or device. Cons- basically what I wrote as a mini rant novel :(
Business users get the shaft
by Jayrodathome on 2014/09/10 22:46
I'm beyond frustrated with dropbox per their current model. Prior to a recent change in their service I had 30+ business accounts on a dropbox team. Storage wasn't an issue. They to date have given us 32tb of space to use between my employees. One of the most anticipated features was the camera upload. My company has many field employees who take pictures of work in the field. This feature would automatically add the photos from camera roll to their dropbox account for easy sharing and would send the pictures directly to their laptop on the camera upload feature. Now Dropbox requires you to have a second account (personal account) attached to the app in order to use this feature. None of the employees in my company have use for Dropbox outside of work. Now we are forced to pay for more additional storage through iCloud In order to store and share photos. Along with retraining everyone on how to use another system. I'm currently researching an alternative to Dropbox that is more business friendly. My requests to Dropbox support left them unable to work with me on the matter. Going to give them one more chance.
Not a Fan of Newest Update
by Fairfax14 on 2016/05/27 17:55
I depend on Dropbox everyday to get my work done and in general it does a fantastic job. However, this newest update makes sharing and saving files a massive hassle. In all past versions, you used to be able to just tap "Share Link" and a link would be automatically generated. Now you have to jump through the hoops of a dialogue box just to create something so simple. Please Dropbox—get rid of this annoyance and make it easy, like it is on the Mac and like it used to be! Also - it's really hard to figure out how to just download a photo to your phone now. You click the download button with the phone icon, but it doesn't show up in your "photos." Instead, I have to click on the random [...] button, then click SHARE VIA..., then click SAVE IMAGE. Again, too many hoops! Why don't you just bring back the share button—like every other app on iOS? Why is it hidden behind that inane and meaningless [...] button? There's plenty of space. I think the Dropbox team is trying to add features and that's great—but don't get in the way of usability and discoverability. Please! Make things simple again.
Newer and simpler
by iPBJ89 on 2012/12/16 04:35
This update is only making Dropbox even better. The simple redesign is fluid, the app loads faster, you can now submit file directly into any folder instead of going to the upload section to do so, create folders directly now and menu GUI is cleaner. I don't get the argument about the style change. I for one don't care about style or graphics as long as it looks fine enough. I don't pay to use apps or play games just because to look pretty with the graphical bandwagon. Its about the functionality and convenience and the new Dropbox update ensures that. The only few things missing is the sharing via other Dropbox accounts, "open in" integration, multiple file saves into the iPad memory, background/multitasking, renaming folders/files, more file type support like GIF and file sorting feature with multiple sorting options such as dates, file types, and names altogether. 4/5 stars so far for the improvement but still has room to grow with some missing crucial and basic features needed.
update is exactly what I asked for
by Ben HT on 2010/03/01 23:17
I downloaded Dropbox the first day it came out, but I noticed that it lacked some crucial features so I sent them an email with feedback. The previous version did not have the user controls while viewing a document in landscape mode so I had to switch back to portrait just to quit out of the document. There was also no fast scrolling. This version has all of that and I am glad that they actually listened to our feedback. They also added recall last-viewed document at start up, which I never thought of, and it is great because I sometimes go to Notes to write something down and then go back to the document to continue reading. I was previously torn between using Dropbox and AirSharing, but since I sync fewer than 2GB of data and I do not use most of the advanced features of AirSharing, I'm now consistently using Dropbox. Dropbox syncs so much easier and I already have it on all my computers. And of course it is FREE.
Very useful for every type of user
by billc2455 on 2012/06/17 22:47
One of the first apps I have ever taken the time to write a review for...This app is incredible in its simplicity and usefulness. I have worked in IT for over 10 years and use it on all of my computers and mobile devices to share media, documents, and any other type of file almost immediately. I've recommended it to family and friends on several occasions and it has always been received positively, even from people that are not very IT savvy. I see several reviews about recent issues with the password protection feature, but since this is not a feature that I use (nor should most users ever require this functionality), I have continued to use this app for quite some time with zero problems. Setup is a breeze and from there it is simply drag and drop. The interface is extremely intuitive and easy to use for even the most novice user. Even more amazing is that it's completely free!
The app is UNUSABLE now!
by DPdesh92 on 2014/10/25 22:53
This app used to be 4-5 stars, but now it's a 1-star app until this issue gets fixed. The issue is that when I open the app, I get a pop-up window that says "Sign in to iTunes to enable push notifications." I have already signed in, so I click 'Ok,' which closes the pop-up, but it comes back with the same message after a second. It does this even when I hit 'Cancel.' The pop-up ends up blocking any other iPad functions other than the volume control or lock button. The only way to get back to home screen is to hit 'OK' or 'Cancel' and then hit the home button just in time before the pop-up returns. This makes the app completely unusable. I have been using the Dropbox in conjunction with a note-taking app for around 2 years now without a hitch for grad school. Now with this issue, I will need to move all my files to google drive and delete my Dropbox subscription. I'd have to do this in future anyways, I guess since dropbox gives me only ~6 GB right now, whereas I can get 30 GB on Google drive, which makes more sense for the long term. However, I liked the dropbox app UI better than that of Google Drive. Frustrating and unfortunate!
Totally Fails iPhone and Zero Support
by JungleNut on 2017/01/31 00:40
Update: it's been over a month and still no support. I've been a paying customer for years and every time I have an issue it takes longer and longer for support to respond to my help tickets. This time they have totally failed to respond as promised. I cannot upload simple videos from my iPhone anymore and after a week of waiting for what they said would be a "48 to 72 hour wait for paying customers" I have given up. My particular issue is NOT covered in the FAQ nor in the Forums. I will find a better cloud storage that actually cares about their paying customers enough to provide support. Btw, I have submitted two help tickets, one a week ago and one 72 hrs ago with no reply whatsoever. Each time I get a auto generated response saying for paying customers will receive a response within 48 to 72 hours. Don't waste your time with Dropbox. They have out grown their own capacity both in support and in ability to provide reliable service. Also why would a developer release an update without disclosing what "improvements" I'm downloading? So far the app just gets more unreliable with each update in my experience.
And still it doesn't work
by Bfrank4fr on 2012/04/26 15:21
Despite "Tech Support" giving me the same instructions over and over (why would it work the 5th time if not the first) I have to manually transfer files from laptop to iphone. Even if it's my fault or a problem with my phone or settings, surely the brilliant people at Dropbox could solve it in a different way...what's that saying the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results? I'm looking for a reco for a different app/program - even though I paid for the upgraded extra space - if I can't fill it up automatically - it's worth NOTHING to me! Shame on you Dropbox. Also there is no way to contact them - they just keep offering FAQs - you got too big too quickly and forgot customer service. Initially this was great - even with a glitch I got fast feedback and got that fixed. But now it will not sync so even when I try to manually set that up it doesn't. I don't know what the problem is - but David Pogue should re-evaluate this. Something is not right here. And tech support is not responding either. Oh well, perhaps their competitors will take this concept and improve upon it.
Terrible experience and awful customer service
by Jw8376384748 on 2016/12/09 12:27
What an absolutely terrible program an app! I purchase dropbox pro two months ago to upload my iPhone photos onto dropbox so that I could then transfer them to my computer. I have had only problems from the beginning. My photos would upload extremely slow and get stuck in stop uploading at all. I contacted customer service after a month and it has since been six weeks of back-and-forth emails with them and nothing is working still. They don't have phone customer service and will only email with you and the email every few days so it is an extremely drawn out frustrating process. None of their tips have helped and so I finally asked for a refund which they have refused. They actually refused a refund for a nonworking service where none of their tips are helping it to work properly. I asked repeatedly to speak with a manager and they said I couldn't do that. What business model runs this way?? A very unprofessional one!What an atrocity! I've never heard of anything like that before. I would never ever recommend anyone purchased dropbox pro or use the app. Terrible experience.
Best free app in the App Store
by Tiger0812 on 2010/06/02 21:24
This is one of the very few apps that actually worked from the time I installed it on my computer and iPad and iPhone and iPod. The iPad and iPhone versions integrates with each other from installatin. And when you change the files & folders in the Dropbox they sync with your other devices. It alos integrates with Air Sharing, PDF Reader Pro, Goodreader, Documentt Downloader, Notebooks, Print Bureau and DocsToGo among other business & productivy apps as well as a stand-along by itself. DocsToGo is the easiest and best file & folder transfer/sync app in the App Store. I have tried many other apps similar, but then discovered that the DocsToGo that I already owned was the best and easiest to use. You can also put files and folders from DocsToGo in a Dropbox folder. You can transfer files from Dropbox on the iPad/iPhone into the apps listed above. Everyone who transfers or syncs files between computers and Apple devices should have this app.
Fabulous App-just wish the audio player worked better
by roaming_abroad on 2015/10/07 09:05
This is a great App and a great company. Extremely easy to use and a most valuable way to a) collaborate, and b) keep critical files in a safe place. BUT how I wish DropBox would make the audio player work. We're collaborating on sharing audio files and we can't get the file to load onto the device to be available "offline." The App does not provide any feedback on whether the file is downloading. Say you're at 15 minutes into the audio and a) go back to say 7:00, everything ahead that was downloaded is instantly lost and it starts over again, and b) there's no precise way to move back to a specific part of the recording. The controls are too small, too imprecise. That's just. Wish list for an otherwise very very usual App. The website is actually much better developed when it comes to audio files--really wish the App could catch up.
Forget you Dropbox
by iPadReady on 2014/01/26 17:52
Yeah another one of these clown companies that forgot how many first edition iPads were sold, millions and yet now you see there is an updated but only for 7.0 iso iPads. First this behavior is one reason I will never but another iDevice, too short of life span, too, too, quick of hardware changes which the app writers are not willing to keep up. $850 for an iPad? Think again, not worth more than $150 no matter what the version based on the short life span of app updates.. This devices live off apps, no apps updates, you have a useless device. As for this app? Well if you like reinstalling, the older version of course, over and over, go for it. It seems to stop seeing the updates/changes to the network storage over time. I have given up trying to tell Dropbox to sort it, that triggers it to misbehave. It is like DropBox has a local index of what is stored, that is all it sees,the only way to get it to sync with the network storage is to delete the app and reinstall, over and over and over, until you get the idea and deleted it with no restore, telling DropBox to "Forget You" Gee, you start to depend on these apps then this crap.
Must for Dropbox Users
by Kevlar1 on 2014/03/18 02:05
There are several cloud options, and all have their own good and bad points, so it isn't worth recommending one cloud option over the others in this space. However, if you are a dropbox user, there is no reason why you shouldn't download this app. Other apps that use dropbox as cloud options relay to this app to allow their apps to be connected to dropbox, so you don't have to leave dropbox account name and password to each app. You feel more secure this way. Since iPad and iPhone don't have file systems, dropbox app more or less work as file manager for the system, making this app an essential for many users. However, there is one gripe that I always have over several years of using dropbox app. It doesn't allow me to rename files. You can delete, move files to another folder, etc., etc., but you can't rename files. When this app finally gets that functionality, it will definitely earn 5 stars from me.
Perfect for Group Projects
by Skinica on 2010/02/12 16:59
Dropbox has been useful for just coordinating my files when working either on my laptop, school, or fiancee's computer. But it has a godsend for a project I'm working on with a partner. We're serving as legal counsel to a nonprofit organizations, doing several discrete projects and creating pamphlets, educational devices, candidate fact sheets, candidate questionnaires, etc. Dropbox (a) lets me see old versions if there's ever a mistake, (b) let's me instantly see any updates that my partner makes, (c) allows me to see if anything has been changed via my iphone. Compared to MobileMe's iDisk, this thing takes the cake (assuming you don't need anything more than 2-3gb, which is plenty for sharing documents). I can have active syncing over multiple computers, intuitively share files, and email a link to the file directly on my iphone or computer. And I can do it all for free. 10 stars out of 10 stars.
Great app!
by Big Bease on 2012/12/15 09:09
I use it all the time! While reading other's reviews, I can't help but notice how petty some of the complains are that would cause one to give this app such a bad rating! This is a great app! Does everything you can really ask of it as far as functionality goes. Yes it could probably be cleaned up a little with an upgrade to the user interface, but really? Your going to complain about 2 free GB of storage that can share files with your computer because it has flaws in its presentation? It's a class interface that doesn't look like someone created the program during a drunken all night programming session, most people shouldn't be worried with what color they chose to make their background. Easy to use and very helpful when sending files. Doesn't bog down my phone when sending e-mails with drop box attachments. Sends like a regular e-mail. I highly recommend...and it's free, quit complaining...
It’s Alright
by Firey432 on 2015/02/28 02:27
Don’t get me wrong.. I like this app and 9/10 times, it works flawlessly. My only issue is the way that photos and files are organized makes it very difficult to browse anything. For example, if I added a file to a folder with 100 other images, viewing under “Files” is a long list. If I view under “Photos”, some newly uploading pictures that probably weren’t created “recently” drop to months ago which makes looking for them very difficult. Also, their free space has been quite generous to me. Although this doesn’t affect my rating, it annoys me how Dropbox offers 1TB for $10 a month or their pro services. Sorry, but as a consumer, I’m just more tempted to try Google Drive or OneDrive as they offer 100GB for $2. Since I currently use only 40GB, I see no reason to pay so much for space, especially when using a 128GB SSD MacBook, therefore I can’t even store that much on a normal basis. I was a huge fan of Dropbox, as everything with it works flawlessly, but the pricing option is just really poor.
Extremely positive--love this app
by zappabeefheartfan on 2010/09/27 16:01
I am just delighted with Dropbox and with this app. I use dropbox constantly for my work, almost exclusively to work on word files. Havn't yet used it for larger files, like photos or music, but that should work too. So far, its perfect. I've created several folders to share with colleagues and with family and its just great to have the access. I made one for my son, for example, so he could save his homework in a file where he could always access it (at school for example when he forgets to bring it!) and where I can look at it, even when I am traveling (using the iphone app)!!. I find the dropbox iphone app works very well with on-phone text editing programs, like quickoffice. Quickoffice costs $10 but dropbox is free as long as you only use 2 GB. Thats not a lot or a huge amount, depending on what you need to do. For me 2GB is just fine, and I am loving this app.
There's a huge Problem...Live Photos
by Nanananana53737 on 2016/01/30 21:28
I love Dropbox so much! It is truly my daily file storage driver for keeping all of my files, folders, and images in there! But....I am hesitating to store my photos in there, actually, simple because of the lack of Live Photos support. Guys, it doesn't make sense to me that the second iOS 9 came out, you jumped out of your way to implement new features such as Spotlight search, 3D Touch, etc. but failed to implement one of the most precious features which is the support for Live Photos. Because of the lack of its availability, I am keeping my Live Photos originals onto my phone just in case I want to jump ships (which I really don't want to do)! Without the implementation of Live Photos support, your app is deadly mediocre despite the fact of how much you publicize your photo and video upload! Please please please...Implement this in the NEAR, NEAR future & if I don't see it by then, I am afraid that I will have to find an alternative. Thanks for everything you do & am waiting for a response! :)
Life Saver
by Non ya business! on 2014/05/30 17:01
Dropbox is one of the most important apps I own. A week before my phone was stolen, I had gotten this app and uploaded my entire camera roll and was able to get all of my photos back. It's also useful to save storage on my phone because I can just upload my photos and then delete them from my camera roll, but still be able to view them in the app. But I only have 2 problems with it: 1.) I would like there to be an edit option so I can crop my photos, because it's really annoying when I crop a photo on my phone and then when I upload it, it uncrops it. 2.) I don't like the fact that the app has to be open in order to upload the photos on my camera roll. It takes a really long time and I don't want to have to wait for it to finish, and I don't want to leave it open in case my phone becomes over heated from being open to long. Overall this is a great thing to have and I highly recommend getting it.
The Best!
by noalarms on 2015/09/26 17:39
You know what's nice about this app? I never think about it. I've been using Dropbox since it was available to the public and I don't think I've ever had a single problem with it. It's there when I need it and working in the background when I don't. For all the people complaining about the cost and only having a few gigs of free storage, please calm down. This company should get paid for what they do. Do you work for free? I don't think so. The free level of Dropbox is to show you how it works so you can try it before you buy it. I tried it for a few years until I needed more space and then I started paying. You can go get better pricing or free options from other companies but from my experience they're not as good. Plus, you have to ask yourself how some of these other companies can give so much free space away. What are they getting in return from you?
A totally essential app
by adaptiveagile on 2017/03/19 16:27
Dropbox has saved me so much time with its built in scanning features. I take pictures of documents with either my iPad or iphone and get lightweight, perfect PDFs for filing. Zero complaints about the app. Moreover the new convert to scan features make this the killer filing system app. Only downside is that they cash your trashed items, which show up on your history. That is a privacy violation that is unacceptable. I expect they will address this issue in an update because I know a lot of people are upset with this policy. That aside, the best app around for remote storage and document management. The scan technology they use beats any of the scanner apps I've purchased or tried by a mile. Their black and white render, for example has the best quality of any scanner app, without jagged edges on straight lines. Masterpiece app -- just fix the bloody caching of privately disposed data please.
How to fix crashing in 1.5
by h_nodder on 2012/06/15 01:15
I wanted the new capability of moving/deleting multiple files at once with version 1.5, so I upgraded from the previous version on my 4th generation iPod Touch running iOS 5.1.1. Like other reviewers, I found that 1.5 crashed after I entered my passcode. I deleted the app and reinstalled it (this has apparently fixed other apps' upgrade problems), logged into it again and set the Passcode Lock, and it works fine now (Your Mileage May Vary). The only thing I lost is the "favorited" (starred) status of selected files; I needed to favorite them again so they would be stored locally on my device. This delete and reinstall actually helped me clean out some favorites which I really wasn't using, so it freed up a little more space on my iPod. I mostly use Dropbox to read PDF files -- it's actually more convenient than some other free, dedicated PDF reader apps.

Dropbox is the only good cloud file service, I'm convinced of this. I've used it for years, and despite the company's troubles it's remained the most solid. I've tried iCloud Drive, OneDrive, Google Drive (which ranks a close 2nd for me), and I also use Creative Cloud as a designer and design student. Dropbox is the only app that integrates deeply with Office documents, PDFs, and it handles Adobe files perfectly acceptably. It's the only cloud file service that lets you edit files directly on mobile devices, whereas other cloud services make copies for you to edit. Then you have to delete the old file, move the edited one to the proper place, etc. etc. It's probably the only service that I *happily* pay for to support the team who makes it. Yes, it has its difficulties but they are amount to far less than other cloud services. Hope my good review offsets the bad, Dropbox is the best.
The best, the very best
by Sonichedgehogback on 2010/07/21 00:59
This is one of my 2 most used apps on the iPhone and iPad. You say it's simple, an everyday idea right...? Wrong. The extent of integration, seamlessness and performance of drop box is stunning. My wife and I use this app to exchange files on a regular basic. Eg she just scanned a doc on her widows box and put it in drop box, then i picked it up on my iPad. I just needed a pic transferred from my iPhone to my desktop and I was going to use it again, but got taken over by a bout of gratitude and decided to write a quick review. Despite my extensive use of db i am not a paying customer. I don't need the extra space - still o would be happy to pay... Hint to the company - give me a reason, any simple reason and my credit card will come peeling out. Example - fine grained sharing - let me create users and selectively give them access to files... I think that would be a real killer app.
Ok product with lousy support
by P9thon 4rms on 2014/12/10 22:20
This was my main cloud service for a couple of years. Recently I added Google Drive for improved file sharing and increased memory--Google offers a lot more for less, so I can store my media there as well as documents. The other day I fired up my old laptop, and apparently DropBox took that as a signal to delete any files and folders that were added since the last time that laptop was used--about 2012. While I still technically have all of my files--DB caches them in Windows--all of the organization is gone, so I have about two thousand business files organized alphabetically. Their help articles didn't offer any solution that worked, and I spent a couple of hours Googling for a solution without success. Supposedly DB can fix this by rolling your folders back to a previous date, but as of today it's been ten days and while they did respond to my initial request with an email, they have not performed the rollback and have ignored my three followup requests. I'm in real estate and my entire business is in those files, so my life is a mess right now.
New to the 'cloud'
by Bomkweesha on 2011/05/28 04:45
As my title says, I'm still learning the ropes as far as navigating storing information in the cloud. I've heard nothing but the highest praise of Dropbox from several of the blogs out there and I decided to give it a try. I am now a total believer! I love the fact that I can save things to Dropbox and always have access to them, for quick reference! For me it also cuts down on the need to carry one more thing around! If I need to look at a document I can easily pull it up on my iPad and look it over. Probably the only thing stopping this from being a perfect app for me is the fact that (at least from iOS devices) you cannot edit text from the app. I have several pieces of writing stored and I would love to be able to change a sentence or add another paragraph from the app versus having to open Pages or another word processing app that you can't save back into. Otherwise, this app is amazing!!
Horrible naming scheme for photos
by Jason Jones 3 on 2015/02/18 08:50
I use Dropbox a lot from my desktop and would use more from my phone but the app offers no options for Tate naming of photos you upload. I want to keep the same name as used by the phone. No messing with any of the meta/exif data either. If there are name conflicts then let me decide how to resolve and offer choices like windows. Currently the app names photos with the month and day and time. Two years of data will sort together alphabetically. Very lame. The carousel app is better for naming but still does not offer a choice. If you don't upload all you photos with dropboxes apps, you'll have duplicates around with the iOS name and the Dropbox name. Very very annoying. Google drive doesn't do this. The other file manager apps for iOS keep the iOS filename and don't tweak the meta data either. If they didn't exist, I'd cancel my Dropbox subscription altogether. The new integration into iOS 8 is very cool. If they just fixed the naming scheme, it would be a perfect solution. Now I avoid it for mobile use.
Better than Google Docs
by bfcoats2 on 2010/08/23 21:27
I rarely write a 5/5 star review, but this app has earned it. Dropbox is easier to use (iPhone and computer versions), supports more file formats, and comes with twice the free storage than Google Docs. This app is great to use as part of my flight training business, especially with the favorites being available when you are not connected to the Internet (i.e. airplane mode). It also works on operating systems as old as Windows '98se (I haven't tried any older OSs) or as new as Windows 7. Highly recommended, this app is a "must have" for any businessman, teacher, or anyone else with an iPhone trying to avoid carrying their laptop around with them everywhere they go. I keep my flight and ground lesson plans in my dropbox so that I can access them from my iPhone, even in the cockpit or on the tarmac -- anywhere on (or above) planet Earth!
Dropbox good. Pro needs heads up re: losing Carousel
by ShaneStreet on 2015/11/05 04:40
The Dropbox software has been great, but please cancel my Dropbox Business trial ASAP and re-enable my Carousel capability. Losing Carousel is a deal breaker, as it has been the most essential value to my small business. If not for this, I would give Dropbox 4-5 stars. I started the trial to expand into accessing more of my non-picture/video files, but was surprised to lose the ability to share with & present picture files with clients as planned just before I needed to do so after starting the trial business upgrade. I am not interested in paying for two accounts. Please let me know when it is possible to automatically back up my camera roll via a business account and manage albums conveniently from there in a manner similar or better than Carousel. Side note only - for what it is worth: I like having Carousel as a backup and means to share picture and video files. The only reason that I do not use Carousel more (more than when I just cannot burn up the memory for certain project albums on the mobile device) is because I cannot modify the pictures in Carousel. Also, pictures edited on my mobile device's camera roll software do not get uploaded automatically to DropBox. That includes, at a minimum, the ability to rotate pictures. The ability to crop and improve photo quality details would be the icing on the cake.
Great Addition to an already Terrific Service
by ericschwartz on 2009/09/29 21:42
I am a fairly new Dropbox user and am using their free version that offers me 2GB of space. Dropbox has been great syncing my some of my files on my work PC and my home MAC. Having the ability to now access my files anywhere in the world is awesome! I going to re-evaluate how I use Dropbx because I will now have access to my files anywhere. Just as described, the App is easy to use. As soon as I logged into the App using the same user name and password as my Dropbox account, a new iPhone introduction pdf snyced to my computer. That was fast! I like the ability of emailing out a link to any of my files in case I need that option. For a future version, I would like to see a search function that can look through all of my folders to speed of the process even more.
Worse every update
by most original nick on 2014/02/02 18:21
Have been using DB for several years and have no complaints with desktop version. HATE ipad version more and more with each update. It seems all that each update does nothing but add gloss while removing substance and makes the app increasingly slow, clunky, and annoying. Way too stripped down (can't rename files, for example.) HATE the intrusiveness of the left menu--figured out you have to tap a photo to view full screen, but still wondering why you can't just collapse that effing menu with an "x" or arrow instead of a gesture. Not fond of the initially baffling "..." thing to do two very common tasks (select and upload) while icons I never use (favorites, photos, settings) reside in valuable screen space along the bottom. As for the settings, NOTHING about the interface can be customized..why is this placed so prominently? Cannot express how much I HATE that I must give DB location data to upload photos. Everyone knows this is pure corporate BS and not a technical requirement--together with all else, it is the last straw for me. Bye bye DB ipad!
!!! DELETE DROPBOX APP AND REINSTALL - JUST UPGRADING CAUSES IT TO START CRASHING !!!
by DB4IP on 2012/06/15 05:25
In order to use the latest update, you will need to uninstall the app and then reinstall it. Just upgrading it will cause the app to start crashing. This crashing cannot be corrected by rebooting. This used to be a 4 star app but now I give it 3 stars due to this problem. Dropbox should have tested their upgrade process much better. The Dropbox app is a very nice app. It allows me to store my documents in the cloud so any of my devices can access them. It works cery well and is very useful since many apps support Dropbox integration. However, the Deopbox iOS app is rather limited in that it lacks many file management features such as move, copy, rename, create and delete folders, zip and unzip, etc. I should not have to use the desktop version for such features. Please add them ASAP and the Dropbox app would be great, merit 5 stars and eliminate my need to have to resort to other apps such as iFiles.
Great
by skartreuse on 2013/12/09 00:10
Great design and all-around service. I've been using Dropbox for years for school work and it's saved me plenty of times when I forgot to pick up my papers from my printer. I really wish you could improve the music player though. I was running out of space on my iPad so I had to delete all my music. I was hoping to use Dropbox or an app that plays music off of Dropbox but none of those work. The music player right now isn't best. It doesn't have loop, loop one, shuffle, etc. It also takes a lot of time to load each song before they actually play. If you do consider improving the player, also think about how some people organize their music in a folder called Music and sub folders by artists and albums. Perhaps make an option to only play certain folders and/or play all sub folders.
why not add delete from camera roll?
by tacoburn70 on 2016/06/12 14:53
I use OneDrive more then Dropbox because I have an Office 365 subscription paid up until dec 2017, which includes 1TB of space for me & my whole family as well (up to 5 accounts). What I don't understand though, is why these cloud drive services, none of them, have an option to delete photos & videos from camera roll after upload?? getting em off the phone is whole point in using that feature in first place. Also an option to restore select photos back to your camera roll. sharing to facebook could share the photo instead of link to the photo too. Another wanted feature might be adding auto syncing of music & documents too. with most iphone users being limited to 16gb of space with each additional 16 costing $100 each, most iphone users are looking for that option.
Handy and solves a big iPhone/iPod Touch deficiency
by EJonC on 2010/02/20 18:42
IMHO, one of the biggest deficiencies of the iPhone/iTouch is the difficulty in storing files locally. I travel internationally, where data rates are obscene, so I like to store important documents (flight schedules, hotel info, key documents, etc) locally before I go. There are several applications that let you do this (Files, FileDev, etc), but they're all awkward to use when you're dealing with dynamic IP addresses. This is the *perfect* solution within the limits imposed by Apple themselves (I'd much prefer actual access to the file system, but Apple doesn't allow that). You can access your documents easily, and by simply marking them "favorite" a local copy is kept that you can look at when you don't have web access. I haven't used it long, but so far it's worked flawlessly.
Dropbox still the best
by Lazy Robot on 2011/04/20 06:48
Now that everyone wants a piece of cloud services business, there are so many apps that claim to offer similar services as dropbox. I've tried zumodrive, and despite the high ratings, it is no where as good. The computer program and iPad app for zumodrive are very buggy, I still have the crap sample music in my iPad zumodrive library even after deleting it everywhere else. Dropbox is way more reliable and it's even better now with the recent updates. Dropbox can be used to open word/pdf documents that you download from the web, which you are effectively uploading to dropbox (theres no folder to actually save documents onto your iPad homepage, so you can only send documents to dropbox via other apps such as pages or safari). But it works nonetheless. Zumodrive cannot do any of this.
Turn off default settings
by Johnger1234 on 2013/10/14 18:48
I am just tying out drop box to transfer photos and videos to and from my iPhone 5s to my IPad3. One option I do not like is that "Camera Upload" is turned on by default. I would prefer that Camera Upload is turned off by default at first use. Then users can turn it on if they choose. Video files take up a lot of room and I don't want every video file on my iPad or iphone uploaded to Dropbox only those that I want to transfer between iDevices. Also I don't want things to automatically sync to all my devices by default. People can turn these options on if they want these options but these settings should not be turned on by default. It sounds a little like what Facebook does by turning on options by default when certain options should be turned off by default. Maybe if a message could pop up at first use informing users of these setting so they can turn them on if the individual user wants the option.
3 glaring issues
by Now-playing on 2016/05/04 06:09
I have never bothered to take the time to review an app, but these are things you want to know and may affect how you feel about downloading this app. 1. Upload rate is horrendous. It takes minimum two minutes to upload a standard iPhone picture. (I have 600) 2. Which brings me to the second part of this issue...Even if I authorize the app to run in the background, it stops loading when you leave the app (I am also on wifi and plugged in) 3. Which brings us to the third issue, and my concern resounds on a deeper note... WHY CANT I AUTHORIZE THE APPLICATION TO CONTINUE TO UPDATE IN THE BACKGROUND, WITHOUT GIVING YOU PERMISSION TO ACCESS AND TRACK MY CURRENT LOCATION, AT ANY TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE APP IS EVEN RUNNING? I pay you to safeguard my documents, not collect additional information about where I am every minute of every day. This is an invasion of my privacy and it does not help the app to function. The only thing your app (you) need to be concerned with is whether or not I have wifi at a given moment or whether I authorize you to use cellular data to operate in the background. Considering I pay you to preserve my documents and pictures, there is no reason that I should be required to allow you to invade my privacy and give you more information than is necessary for you to safeguard my documents and take my money. Please explain why you need to know where I am 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Keep page open?
by Student7098 on 2013/12/15 22:56
I use this app a lot for viewing things for study. I used to be able to open the app, go to the document I wanted, and then flip through other apps. Then, when I would return to Dropbox, the document would remain open for viewing. Since the new update, after a few minutes of the app not being in use, it goes back to the main menu instead of the document I was viewing. It's so frustrating to have to keep going thru my folders to open up the document again! I hope this will change over the next update... Still hoping it will change.... Please!!!!!! Thank you. Also it'd be good to see the time and iPad information at the top like you used to. Now the document takes up the whole screen! Please please please these are easy changes...it used to be this way so make it go back!!!
iOS 8 integration, particularly doc picker, is bad
by Bud Gibson on 2014/11/04 14:30
Dropbox is integral to my workflow. I have all of my most important documents on there, and I use the packrat service to maintain copies of my files over time in case I delete any by accident. I have also integrated it in with a number of my other services. Effectively, it is my digital hub. HOWEVER, I have one giant complaint, enough to knock the iOS app from 5 stars to 3 stars and make me start to consider alternative services. Dropbox has done a frustratingly incomplete integration with iOS 8's new doc picker. For instance, go to any iWork app and hit the plus sign. You'll see a list of services from which you can open files. Go to the more item, and it will appear that you can select dropbox to appear in this list, but no, you can't. Sure, you can toggle the dropbox switch, but it never appears as one of your choices when it comes time to selecting files. Box, a dropbox competitor, does implement this functionality quite well, so it IS NOT AN IWORK PROBLEM. I get the impression that dropbox is fighting on too many fronts at once. They want you to route your mail through mailbox and always back up your photos to them. What I want is a way to conveniently access my documents across multiple devices. Period. I am now actively considering alternatives to dropbox. They need to fix this functionality.
Impressive Customer Care
by Pokirgzhi on 2015/01/27 04:14
I must say that I was never able to use Dropbox the way I thought it worked BUT when someone hijacked an email account of mine THE ONLY COMPANY that realized just how serious this was and replied to me IMMEDIATELY was Dropbox. They not only told me what to do to protect myself in their App...they sent me a long list of all other Apps I should make changes in regardless of status of competitive apps! Their #1 concern was ME! The email company that I pay for annually still has not fixed my situation, they don't seem to even understand the circumstances. Dropbox is now an app I will go out if my wY to learn how to use properly because they want to help you and help you with other apps that don't benefit them! I hope many people read this review because I am not easily impressed!
Not bad but organized horribly
by FutureMrsBrady on 2015/11/18 20:37
Overall, no complaints with the app. It functions very well and I especially love the new fingerprint security access feature. I've never had any issues at all with it crashing or losing files or an inability to retrieve files. My only complaint is more aesthetic and centers on how it sorts your files and folders. It's very heavily focused on providing access to individual files outside of their respective sub folders (organized by date last opened/saved). I organize my files specifically by folders and not having those right in front of me in the same fashion I would see it in the Finder window on my Mac is a little annoying. You can search by file name but sometimes I don't recall what I saved something as but could pull it up quickly via its folder. But besides that, it does as advertised.
Wonderful App So Far
by jbaranski on 2009/09/30 00:49
This app is very useful to me and functions well as far as I've used it. The idea to favorite items works well. Playing audio files is great too. However I'm already having issues with it. For one, there is no zoom function for images, which is very useful at times and something I use quite often. Also, I find myself unable to edit even simple text files. I happen to use a .txt file to communicate back and forth with someone, which is great and was looking forward to doing this in the mobile app. I do realize this is a 1.0 release and will likely be improved upon, so these are simply my suggestions for improvements that could be made. Oh and some sort of sorting option would be nice. Good job on the app. I hope to see even more from you all.

Customer service on par with Comcast
by ml baxley on 2017/07/25 22:04
Totally jacked up my account when Dropbox added back all my deleted folders- for the last 5 years!!! Never fixed it Said they would Told a lie UI is pretty basic and underwhelming. Links are 360 characters long- thank you. they look awesome in text bodies!
Fail!
by RobertDodd on 2017/07/25 20:23
Simply doesn't work anymore. Won't allow me to connect, with the correct login/password. Work allow me to change password when it claims it's incorrect. Basically Dropbox is now just holding my data hostage for $10 per month, in the hope that I maybe, eventually, get access to it again. Use at your own risk.
Great App!
by Apple Product 23 on 2017/07/25 20:20
Dropbox: It is great app to download work or entertainment files into one app it's easy to use and also convenient with the offline mode with my personal experience I have never encountered any problems using the app an easy five star app would totally recommend it to anyone!
I like it
by yeqmaster on 2017/07/24 15:02
I am a bit surprised at the long list of harsh reviews. There are some functionality issues that could use repair, however overall this is a great app and Dropbox is awesome at what it does.

by Wi-Fi app 54321 on 2017/07/23 16:19
No live person for support. They collect your money and then threaten to delete your files if you do not log into your account. I have been logged in ever since I paid and opened an account. I deleted the app, try to sign in with my password and they kept saying that it was not correct. The first thing I do is save my email and password when I create an account. I will be looking for another provider.

abysmal app (and i NEVER write reviews)
by lincorruptible on 2017/07/22 21:47
needs to be updated way too frequently and in the last six months i can't seem to use the "open file in dropbox" link without it taking me to the app store and asking me to reinstall the program, i.e. i can no longer open dropbox files *at all*. it's legitimately nuts that programmers get paid $100s of Ks for this—it's literally less functional than the pre-digital predecessor of just scanning books, photocopying them and sending them in the mail. terrible app. use drive or mediafire instead
A bit clunky
by Never given on 2017/07/22 16:42
If you want to log in to another account, you have to delete the app, and re download each time.it gets very tedious.
Melted my phone
by Jer12398 on 2017/07/22 14:54
I decided to download Dropbox to backup some important videos so I could delete them off my phone. Next thing I know Dropbox sponged up all the rest of my free space and burnt my phone to a crisp. My fingers are burning as I type this. My files are not backed up and my phone is full. This app is supposed to back thing up to the cloud, not to your phone. :(

"Recents" is a huge failure
by Airbossdave on 2017/07/22 04:13
Dropbox was great in the beginning, but not now! Having the app open on the "Recents" tab with no option to clear the list or to choose a different folder to open to is not only a huge inconvenience it's a serious privacy issue. To make matters worse, Dropbox developers do not care that everyone HATES this feature. They've had plenty of time to address it and they just refuse to. DO NOT USE DROPBOX; it's not worth the money.

Saving files offline diesn't work
by Ranagast on 2017/07/17 04:03
App shows available space for downloading offline files to be about a quarter of what should actually be available, and when you take files off it doesn't free up the space. When I contacted their tech support they were patronizing and unhelpful.
Does not upload
by BostonKT on 2017/07/17 02:36
Just downloaded and attempted to upload 10 photos. The app hung in "uploading" state for about an hour with no progress. I canceled the upload and even that took several minutes. Redownloaded the app and tried with 1 photo - no luck. I'm very surprised Dropbox would publish an app with its primary function broken. Very disappointing.

Files have no chronological order
by Ashley696977775536 on 2017/07/15 14:33
The app is great to look at files in order if you're continuously scrolling but if you look through then app then come back and try to scroll through the files in order, it don't let you. You end up scrolling through files at random. I have uploaded my workouts to the app so if I go look at one set then come back to look at what I have next, I have to scroll through the files to find the one that was next. It sooo annoying and I don't get the point of having to scroll and get random files. I should be able to come back and go directly to the next file. Please fix this issue !

Thank you for the steady flow of updates. Here's my thoughts

Eropbox must be one of the most "supported by its developers" apps available. There's a really great constant flow of updates which is so so good - so thank you Dropbox Team. I have but one complaint. The syncing time is a bit slow. If there's a way to make that faster, that would be great.
Can't save more than one file at a time. Still.
by sixghz on 2017/07/14 16:18
It's been a while since I reviewed this, and the number one thing I want is to be able to save all my files and photos to my phone a little easier. Is it that hard?
It is no longer possible to use the "open in" iOS functionality
by Nonpotest on 2017/07/14 11:51
The most recent version removed the ability to upload files from other apps to your Dropbox account. You can now only send those files to other people. So if you were using DropBox as your main cloud storage solution and don't want every file to be public, you're out of luck. It is completely ridiculous to require a file to be shared (with an email notification!) in order for it to be uploaded.
Enough with the updates!
by TH1224 on 2017/07/14 06:42
Its nice you want to fix bugs and add new features. But every couple of days? How about every two to three weeks or monthly?

Thank you for adding text editing on iOS!!!
by checker2718 on 2017/07/13 19:17
After using the android Dropbox app for years with its text editing feature, I was dismayed the iOS version didn't have it, especially because iOS is much more restrictive on having other apps edit a given app's files. But it finally got added, thank you!
Great app but time to update/upgrade
by KSuave1911 on 2017/07/13 17:19
I like this app for a variety of reasons for it's ease of use, connecting to devices, and storage. I do wish there were and option to sign into multiple accounts rather than have to go thru the arduous process of logging in and out. There are other apps out there that let users switch between accounts yet Dropbox doesn't allow that as an option.
Won't Display Full File Name in Ipad App
by Bosscrab on 2017/07/13 14:22
The Ipad app will not display the full file name, which makes it impossible to find the file you are looking for. The app needs to have a view mode that lists the files without the huge preview window.
Annoying as hell UX
by Kegels on 2017/07/13 00:55
Dropbox made me download their app in order to view a file online. Terribly frustrating and clearly in service of their bottom line and not my easy usage of their product
Photo auto-upload does not work
by AnApparition on 2017/07/12 17:09
You can select to auto upload photos but then it only actually uploads them if the app is open front and center, not practical at all since it's basically no different than manually uploading photos. Still great for sharing and syncing other files but if you use it mostly for photos, you might want to look elsewhere.

Latest version is a battery killer in background mode
by TDLphoto.com on 2017/07/11 14:20
I've noticed that the latest version has been killing my battery in background mode, eating up close to 28% of my battery life. Also, the scan a doc feature takes forever and I wish you'd make this a stand alone app and function. Lastly, I like the file renaming on scan documents, but I wish there was an option to keep the original file name as well for items that weren't created on the day you happen to be converting a picture to a scan.
Simple & Easy
by LiCa2 on 2017/07/11 07:04
Dropbox is a good way for me to upload pictures from my camera to my computer and then download to my phone. The process is easy and simple.
No camera photos upload
by Smithsailing on 2017/07/11 06:35
Ppl have been complaining for over 2 years that the camera picture upload feature doesn't work. Dropbox refuses to fix this feature. I pay 100 bucks a year for a defective app that is worthless.
Hacked for Ransomware
by Smalltarget on 2017/07/10 15:37
While the convenience of Dropbox is unquestionable, think twice if you use Dropbox to secure the information. One of my folders was hacked by Osiris for ransom and the only response was sorry, was more than 30 days ago, but you could upgrade your service. Used with caution. They clearly have no protections in place to prevent your data from being hacked.

How is there not a select all button?
by Hareemz2012 on 2017/07/09 07:28
This is a very good app. How is it that you leave out something as simple as a select all button? I'm not about to click hundreds of times just to copy an album to my camera roll. That's really quite sad.
Very unintuitive and convoluted
by Zshanif on 2017/07/06 03:33
There is a certain style to how items are usually manipulated in iOS and Dropbox completely disregards that. Deleting a folder is not a swipe leftwards and a tap on "delete", it takes at the least 4 taps (one which involves going into "Folder Settings", which many people would not consider). The only thing that this app has going for it is that iOS supports Dropbox as an upload method; otherwise, there are plenty of more convenient services.
Music and Videos
by I like games yeah on 2017/07/05 05:32
The dropbox app itself is great, but I've found something that really bugs me. I cant directly move music and/or video files from dropbox directly to iTunes without using my computer. I shouldn't have to go through the trouble of using another device to do something that should be easily doable from just one device. A simple file transfer shouldn't require the use of a third party device. Other than that the app is good.
Sharing update much worse
by timster51 on 2017/07/05 03:31
The latest update for sharing is much worse. The interface is difficult to use and not visually appealing. Also it is very slow and constantly crashes. Not what I expect from Dropbox. How much am I paying for this a month?? Help!!!!

Update: What happened to auto upload?
by mysterygirl75 on 2017/07/04 16:39
Update: There have been one or two updates since I wrote my original review, and these problems still have not been fixed. I have more than a hundred photos waiting to upload, and only three photos have uploaded even after keeping the app opened on the phone for an hour. Ridiculous! Why did you remove the auto upload? I hate having to manually select photos, and then it takes days for them to upload because they will only upload when Dropbox is open and the phone is unlocked. I used to love this service, but, if it stays like this, I will look for something else.

Offline folder

User of many years and well...
by sleepsss on 2017/07/02 13:48
I know Dropbox isn't a media player, but it would be so great if there were better functionality with audio files. Seeking from the control center, and maybe even repeat functionality would be great. That's something that for many years has been missing from Dropbox. Being able to show and hide your personal Dropbox in the menu would lively things up as well. Just forward thinking ideas.
I mean really?!

This is one of my favorite and most used apps, but it desperately needs a fix for the "recent" tab. Either a disable feature or at the very least a "clear" option. Please fix ASAP !!
Great app
by victor3862 on 2017/06/29 23:00
Great app. Super fast sync. Just works. The new camera scanner is great, but not as good as the Scannable app. That one still corrects the document better and scans faster. Keep up the good work and hopefully improve the scanner, because it's super useful.
Can't get into my dropbox
by Malificent1 on 2017/06/29 20:36
I have used dropbox for quite a long time then with one of your updates all of a sudden it asked for a pin code of 4 digits. I have no idea what you guys are talking about I never set up a four digit code and I cannot get into my dropbox to see my pictures. I have noticed other people are having the same problem. So what is going on we need some help so we can get into a drop boxes and see your pictures. Could someone from tech-support please respond to this and fix this problem I have sent many emails and messages to you guys to fix this problem for quite some time and it still has not been fixed. Please help thank you.

Don't use for backing up files
by jshanl on 2017/06/29 18:28
I downloaded this app and used it in school to backup files. As well as after to backup files and pictures. This was a HORRIBLE idea. They delete your account if you haven't logged into it in a certain amount of time. When I went to log back into my account it was just gone. I would recommend looking at alternative apps that do not delete accounts without permission.

Text file editing doesn't always work
by patricknh on 2017/06/28 10:44
At a first glance, it appears that version 54.2's text-file editing only works on tiny files. An 867KB .txt file -- that's about the size of a novel -- loads just fine, as ever, but the editing icon doesn't appear. This behavior is the same on my iPhone 7+ running iOS 10.3.2 and my iPad Pro running the public beta iOS 11.
Yet another fantastic update.
by @davidjoelhall on 2017/06/28 04:56
With a recent update, Dropbox included a Text Editor... what seems to be such a simple thing, is finally here. I am replacing nvNotes on my home screen with Dropbox. Dropbox has everything I'll need: - basic font - fast sync - offline support - edit text Thank you for this update Dropbox!

by ebassily on 2017/06/28 01:15
The app is becoming more and more useful with the features you're adding to it. However, tapping the plus icon and selecting Scan A Document takes forever to open the camera. I just downloaded the latest version you released today, but it didn't take care of that issue yet. Please fix this soon as it's keeping me from using this feature and using Scanbot instead. Thanks
No Export!!
by Steelydanu on 2017/06/28 00:52
You cannot export in bulk or via folders. You have to export each file individually and this is not acceptable when you have hundreds of files!

If you sign into your account from a browser there is no opportunity to manage your 4 digit iPhone code there. There is no mention of one there.

Canceling friends' and family members' Dropbox subscriptions
by Jazz Thompson on 2017/06/20 15:35
**Update 5/22/17 -- Dropbox ignores my Tweets and emails asking when iOS Live Photo backup will be available so I have started helping friends and family members cancel their paid Pro subscriptions with the $40 annual Packrat add-on and move to other services like Box and OneDrive for files and Google Photos for pictures.** I was surprised and disappointed this morning when I realized that Dropbox hasn't been backing them up. This is important. As a Pro user who pays for the Packrat add-on, I have high expectations for app development turnaround time and over a year is too long! I will increase my rating to 5 stars once Live Photos backup feature is rolled out because otherwise this app is great.

Dropbox for iPhone: A Good Start
by David Vasquez on 2009/09/29 22:57
After using this app for a brief time, I have found myself wanting to go back to the web interface - and for only one main reason. Photo thumbnails. There don't seem to be any! Unfortunately for me, someone who takes a large number of photos and stores them in his dropbox, this poses a problem which the web interface doesn't have. The ability to view image thumbnails seems like a no-brainer to me. I'm really disappointed that this functionality appears to be missing. The app itself works fine, it does what it says, and I LOVE the ability to send off my photos and videos from anywhere to my computers at home. Major bonus points for that one Dropbox! However, for browsing files, I think I'll be sticking with the web app - at least until photo thumbnails are integrated. It makes it difficult to browse for the photos I'm looking for without them. In addition, it seems a lot of basic functionality of managing files within your dropbox are missing. After reading over their "to do" list, it seems like these things are planned for future revisions - no mention of photo thumbnails, though! Overall, A good start to an app that holds a lot of promise. Unfortunately I can't rate it 5 stars until I can happily delete the shortcut to the web interface from my home screen. If I have to use both, it isn't fulfilling all the needs it should be. It has a lot of room to grow, but the initial release is well worth picking up.
Incredible app!
by madisono on 2016/12/07 21:23
With the world of cloud storage options being so large and growing every day, Dropbox is the standard by which to measure other apps, and I say just apps because it is a standout not only in cloud storage but as an app in general. That being said, my one negative thing to say is that I think the price for a solo user is too high. When I can get 50 GB of iCloud storage for 99 cents a month, and my Adobe Creative Cloud just flat out over triples my cloud storage for free when I called to see about paying for more storage all because I'm a good customer on a regular payment plan. It leaves me in the unfortunate world of a free account Dropbox customer, and I find that depressing because it limits my use of Dropbox and means I'm not financially contributing to what I consider one of the best and most useful apps on the market. If I could offer a suggestion, I feel stupid for assuming I could actually have advice to offer such a forward thinking brand, I would suggest Dropbox look into lower priced plans. Maybe these plans offer limited capabilities or space (For my use a 50GB storage option would be ideal) but another $10 a month auto payment is just too much. Maybe we could pick and choose which features or capabilities we want our Dropbox to have and pay accordingly. Just food for thought for a thoughtful company from a non paying user who wants to be a paying user.
Safest online storage for my writing - w/ Elements it works perfect for me
by ...S.B on 2013/04/19 01:03
It seems that Dropbox is the only online storage server whose user agreement states that Dropbox employees are forbidden from looking at your content, i.e. what's inside your documents, pix, &tc. By contrast, the Google user agreement states they can look through your stuff, use it however they want - that you agree it's cool with you so long as they don't claim ownership. Apple user agreements for online storage have always been vague legalese, so you don't know what they'll do. For my money, that means I'll store in Dropbox & nowhere else until I learn that Apple or Google respects the private sanctity of my stuff a lot more than they do now. As far as using the app, I've a big-screen iMac, an iPhone 5 & an iPad mini. I use a separate linked app, Elements, to write notes & documents into Dropbox on the fly. Some time ago, there were some glitches accessing everything equally on all 3 devices, but the Dropbox & Element developers seem to have cleared all that up. Lately anything I've ever written into Dropbox by way of Elements has been immediately accessible on all 3 devices, so for me it works perfectly. I guess this is kind of a review for Elements also, which I should go & write a review there too. Beyond that, I've shared photos & mp3s easily many times. No complaints.
Awesome embedded "Save to Dropbox" feature on iPhone & iPad!!!
by Angelo Review on 2017/04/26 21:20
I honestly had never used Dropbox until I found the "Save to Dropbox" feature on my iPhone and iPad. Now I love it! You can save the site you are looking at as a PDF file to your Dropbox account from the web browser. You have to have the Dropbox app on your phone and a Dropbox account of course. You will also need to turn the "Save to Dropbox" selection on through web browser settings. It's in the same area you go to print or bookmark a web page. If you don't see it make sure you have the Dropbox app on the device you are using and when going to the area where you would bookmark scroll all the way to the right and there should be a button to select more. It will save the web page to your Dropbox account when you select "Save to Dropbox". Then you can open the Dropbox app and your file with load in as a PDF and you can even continue to save it offline to your device if you wish. Great feature! Just a word of warning, it will save exactly what is displayed on the web page at the time you save it. Meaning, if images aren't loaded for instance, then it will save the page with those images not loaded. Hope this helps!
Dropped In Just In Time
by dj22091 on 2009/10/03 19:16
I ended up downloading this because of the hype. I read from a few places that this new Dropbox app was something to have, and sure enough it is. I've been using Air Sharing for the longest time, mainly because of my school work. When I had a Powerpoint or Word Document to read I'd end up putting it in a folder to view later on the go. The only problem was connecting it to my iMac. There were a lot of different ways to connect Air Sharing to my computer, and while some did work, the majority did not. Dropbox, however, is a different story. I was skeptical at first, but after a few minutes I found that it is really easy to sync Powerpoints and the like to my phone. Just had to install the Dropbox application on my iPhone and my iMac and I was good to go. Now viewing these files over a Wi-Fi or 3G connection had me worried, considering that I may have to wait quite a while to view a Powerpoint at last notice. My worries faded when I saw that you were able to actually downlaod a file to your phone just by adding it as a favorite. It seems everything I had a question for was answered! Truly an awesome app that I will be getting much use out of.
LOVED Carousel...
by marsanchez02 on 2016/04/05 22:05
Carousel was the best app to happen to my phone. When they took it off, I was SUPER disappointed. I never liked using Dropbox itself bc of the terrible layout. Carousel helped delete photos off my phone to open up storage and now I'm scared to delete pictures off my phone because I'm not really sure it's gonna stay on Dropbox. Carousel had a beautiful layout where I could easily find any picture I wanted and it had flashbacks which were always cute to look at what you did the year before. I'm so used to pressing and holding to select multiple pictures. It was super easy to use and I loved it to the moon and back. Dropbox, however, I don't like and I'm not used to. The layout is bad and makes me feel claustrophobic. I never used this app when I had Carousel. NEVER. Dropbox doesn't remove photos from my phone that are safely stored, so yes I'm scared to manually delete them myself. I just don't like using it at all... Carousel was my life when I had it and my favorite app to use. Why did y'all have to shut it down?? If you want to keep your customers, PLEASE put back the Carousel features!! Very sad member. :( Pros- useful to access photos from any computer or device. Cons- basically what I wrote as a mini rant novel :(
Business users get the shaft
by Jayrodathome on 2014/09/10 22:46
I'm beyond frustrated with dropbox per their current model. Prior to a recent change in their service I had 30+ business accounts on a dropbox team. Storage wasn't an issue. They to date have given us 32tb of space to use between my employees. One of the most anticipated features was the camera upload. My company has many field employees who take pictures of work in the field. This feature would automatically add the photos from camera roll to their dropbox account for easy sharing and would send the pictures directly to their laptop on the camera upload feature. Now Dropbox requires you to have a second account (personal account) attached to the app in order to use this feature. None of the employees in my company have use for Dropbox outside of work. Now we are forced to pay for more additional storage through iCloud In order to store and share photos. Along with retraining everyone on how to use another system. I'm currently researching an alternative to Dropbox that is more business friendly. My requests to Dropbox support left them unable to work with me on the matter. Going to give them one more chance.
Not a Fan of Newest Update
by Fairfax14 on 2016/05/27 17:55
I depend on Dropbox everyday to get my work done and in general it does a fantastic job. However, this newest update makes sharing and saving files a massive hassle. In all past versions, you used to be able to just tap "Share Link" and a link would be automatically generated. Now you have to jump through the hoops of a dialogue box just to create something so simple. Please Dropbox—get rid of this annoyance and make it easy, like it is on the Mac and like it used to be! Also - it's really hard to figure out how to just download a photo to your phone now. You click the download button with the phone icon, but it doesn't show up in your "photos." Instead, I have to click on the random [...] button, then click SHARE VIA..., then click SAVE IMAGE. Again, too many hoops! Why don't you just bring back the share button—like every other app on iOS? Why is it hidden behind that inane and meaningless [...] button? There's plenty of space. I think the Dropbox team is trying to add features and that's great—but don't get in the way of usability and discoverability. Please! Make things simple again.
Newer and simpler
by iPBJ89 on 2012/12/16 04:35
This update is only making Dropbox even better. The simple redesign is fluid, the app loads faster, you can now submit file directly into any folder instead of going to the upload section to do so, create folders directly now and menu GUI is cleaner. I don't get the argument about the style change. I for one don't care about style or graphics as long as it looks fine enough. I don't pay to use apps or play games just because to look pretty with the graphical bandwagon. Its about the functionality and convenience and the new Dropbox update ensures that. The only few things missing is the sharing via other Dropbox accounts, "open in" integration, multiple file saves into the iPad memory, background/multitasking, renaming folders/files, more file type support like GIF and file sorting feature with multiple sorting options such as dates, file types, and names altogether. 4/5 stars so far for the improvement but still has room to grow with some missing crucial and basic features needed.
update is exactly what I asked for
by Ben HT on 2010/03/01 23:17
I downloaded Dropbox the first day it came out, but I noticed that it lacked some crucial features so I sent them an email with feedback. The previous version did not have the user controls while viewing a document in landscape mode so I had to switch back to portrait just to quit out of the document. There was also no fast scrolling. This version has all of that and I am glad that they actually listened to our feedback. They also added recall last-viewed document at start up, which I never thought of, and it is great because I sometimes go to Notes to write something down and then go back to the document to continue reading. I was previously torn between using Dropbox and AirSharing, but since I sync fewer than 2GB of data and I do not use most of the advanced features of AirSharing, I'm now consistently using Dropbox. Dropbox syncs so much easier and I already have it on all my computers. And of course it is FREE.
Very useful for every type of user
by billc2455 on 2012/06/17 22:47
One of the first apps I have ever taken the time to write a review for...This app is incredible in its simplicity and usefulness. I have worked in IT for over 10 years and use it on all of my computers and mobile devices to share media, documents, and any other type of file almost immediately. I've recommended it to family and friends on several occasions and it has always been received positively, even from people that are not very IT savvy. I see several reviews about recent issues with the password protection feature, but since this is not a feature that I use (nor should most users ever require this functionality), I have continued to use this app for quite some time with zero problems. Setup is a breeze and from there it is simply drag and drop. The interface is extremely intuitive and easy to use for even the most novice user. Even more amazing is that it's completely free!
The app is UNUSABLE now!
by DPdesh92 on 2014/10/25 22:53
This app used to be 4-5 stars, but now it's a 1-star app until this issue gets fixed. The issue is that when I open the app, I get a pop-up window that says "Sign in to iTunes to enable push notifications." I have already signed in, so I click 'Ok,' which closes the pop-up, but it comes back with the same message after a second. It does this even when I hit 'Cancel.' The pop-up ends up blocking any other iPad functions other than the volume control or lock button. The only way to get back to home screen is to hit 'OK' or 'Cancel' and then hit the home button just in time before the pop-up returns. This makes the app completely unusable. I have been using the Dropbox in conjunction with a note-taking app for around 2 years now without a hitch for grad school. Now with this issue, I will need to move all my files to google drive and delete my Dropbox subscription. I'd have to do this in future anyways, I guess since dropbox gives me only ~6 GB right now, whereas I can get 30 GB on Google drive, which makes more sense for the long term. However, I liked the dropbox app UI better than that of Google Drive. Frustrating and unfortunate!
Totally Fails iPhone and Zero Support
by JungleNut on 2017/01/31 00:40
Update: it's been over a month and still no support. I've been a paying customer for years and every time I have an issue it takes longer and longer for support to respond to my help tickets. This time they have totally failed to respond as promised. I cannot upload simple videos from my iPhone anymore and after a week of waiting for what they said would be a "48 to 72 hour wait for paying customers" I have given up. My particular issue is NOT covered in the FAQ nor in the Forums. I will find a better cloud storage that actually cares about their paying customers enough to provide support. Btw, I have submitted two help tickets, one a week ago and one 72 hrs ago with no reply whatsoever. Each time I get a auto generated response saying for paying customers will receive a response within 48 to 72 hours. Don't waste your time with Dropbox. They have out grown their own capacity both in support and in ability to provide reliable service. Also why would a developer release an update without disclosing what "improvements" I'm downloading? So far the app just gets more unreliable with each update in my experience.
And still it doesn't work
by Bfrank4fr on 2012/04/26 15:21
Despite "Tech Support" giving me the same instructions over and over (why would it work the 5th time if not the first) I have to manually transfer files from laptop to iphone. Even if it's my fault or a problem with my phone or settings, surely the brilliant people at Dropbox could solve it in a different way...what's that saying the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results? I'm looking for a reco for a different app/program - even though I paid for the upgraded extra space - if I can't fill it up automatically - it's worth NOTHING to me! Shame on you Dropbox. Also there is no way to contact them - they just keep offering FAQs - you got too big too quickly and forgot customer service. Initially this was great - even with a glitch I got fast feedback and got that fixed. But now it will not sync so even when I try to manually set that up it doesn't. I don't know what the problem is - but David Pogue should re-evaluate this. Something is not right here. And tech support is not responding either. Oh well, perhaps their competitors will take this concept and improve upon it.
Terrible experience and awful customer service
by Jw8376384748 on 2016/12/09 12:27
What an absolutely terrible program an app! I purchase dropbox pro two months ago to upload my iPhone photos onto dropbox so that I could then transfer them to my computer. I have had only problems from the beginning. My photos would upload extremely slow and get stuck in stop uploading at all. I contacted customer service after a month and it has since been six weeks of back-and-forth emails with them and nothing is working still. They don't have phone customer service and will only email with you and the email every few days so it is an extremely drawn out frustrating process. None of their tips have helped and so I finally asked for a refund which they have refused. They actually refused a refund for a nonworking service where none of their tips are helping it to work properly. I asked repeatedly to speak with a manager and they said I couldn't do that. What business model runs this way?? A very unprofessional one!What an atrocity! I've never heard of anything like that before. I would never ever recommend anyone purchased dropbox pro or use the app. Terrible experience.
Best free app in the App Store
by Tiger0812 on 2010/06/02 21:24
This is one of the very few apps that actually worked from the time I installed it on my computer and iPad and iPhone and iPod. The iPad and iPhone versions integrates with each other from installatin. And when you change the files & folders in the Dropbox they sync with your other devices. It alos integrates with Air Sharing, PDF Reader Pro, Goodreader, Documentt Downloader, Notebooks, Print Bureau and DocsToGo among other business & productivy apps as well as a stand-along by itself. DocsToGo is the easiest and best file & folder transfer/sync app in the App Store. I have tried many other apps similar, but then discovered that the DocsToGo that I already owned was the best and easiest to use. You can also put files and folders from DocsToGo in a Dropbox folder. You can transfer files from Dropbox on the iPad/iPhone into the apps listed above. Everyone who transfers or syncs files between computers and Apple devices should have this app.
Fabulous App-just wish the audio player worked better
by roaming_abroad on 2015/10/07 09:05
This is a great App and a great company. Extremely easy to use and a most valuable way to a) collaborate, and b) keep critical files in a safe place. BUT how I wish DropBox would make the audio player work. We're collaborating on sharing audio files and we can't get the file to load onto the device to be available "offline." The App does not provide any feedback on whether the file is downloading. Say you're at 15 minutes into the audio and a) go back to say 7:00, everything ahead that was downloaded is instantly lost and it starts over again, and b) there's no precise way to move back to a specific part of the recording. The controls are too small, too imprecise. That's just. Wish list for an otherwise very very usual App. The website is actually much better developed when it comes to audio files--really wish the App could catch up.
Forget you Dropbox
by iPadReady on 2014/01/26 17:52
Yeah another one of these clown companies that forgot how many first edition iPads were sold, millions and yet now you see there is an updated but only for 7.0 iso iPads. First this behavior is one reason I will never but another iDevice, too short of life span, too, too, quick of hardware changes which the app writers are not willing to keep up. $850 for an iPad? Think again, not worth more than $150 no matter what the version based on the short life span of app updates.. This devices live off apps, no apps updates, you have a useless device. As for this app? Well if you like reinstalling, the older version of course, over and over, go for it. It seems to stop seeing the updates/changes to the network storage over time. I have given up trying to tell Dropbox to sort it, that triggers it to misbehave. It is like DropBox has a local index of what is stored, that is all it sees,the only way to get it to sync with the network storage is to delete the app and reinstall, over and over and over, until you get the idea and deleted it with no restore, telling DropBox to "Forget You" Gee, you start to depend on these apps then this crap.
Must for Dropbox Users
by Kevlar1 on 2014/03/18 02:05
There are several cloud options, and all have their own good and bad points, so it isn't worth recommending one cloud option over the others in this space. However, if you are a dropbox user, there is no reason why you shouldn't download this app. Other apps that use dropbox as cloud options relay to this app to allow their apps to be connected to dropbox, so you don't have to leave dropbox account name and password to each app. You feel more secure this way. Since iPad and iPhone don't have file systems, dropbox app more or less work as file manager for the system, making this app an essential for many users. However, there is one gripe that I always have over several years of using dropbox app. It doesn't allow me to rename files. You can delete, move files to another folder, etc., etc., but you can't rename files. When this app finally gets that functionality, it will definitely earn 5 stars from me.
Perfect for Group Projects
by Skinica on 2010/02/12 16:59
Dropbox has been useful for just coordinating my files when working either on my laptop, school, or fiancee's computer. But it has a godsend for a project I'm working on with a partner. We're serving as legal counsel to a nonprofit organizations, doing several discrete projects and creating pamphlets, educational devices, candidate fact sheets, candidate questionnaires, etc. Dropbox (a) lets me see old versions if there's ever a mistake, (b) let's me instantly see any updates that my partner makes, (c) allows me to see if anything has been changed via my iphone. Compared to MobileMe's iDisk, this thing takes the cake (assuming you don't need anything more than 2-3gb, which is plenty for sharing documents). I can have active syncing over multiple computers, intuitively share files, and email a link to the file directly on my iphone or computer. And I can do it all for free. 10 stars out of 10 stars.
Great app!
by Big Bease on 2012/12/15 09:09
I use it all the time! While reading other's reviews, I can't help but notice how petty some of the complains are that would cause one to give this app such a bad rating! This is a great app! Does everything you can really ask of it as far as functionality goes. Yes it could probably be cleaned up a little with an upgrade to the user interface, but really? Your going to complain about 2 free GB of storage that can share files with your computer because it has flaws in its presentation? It's a class interface that doesn't look like someone created the program during a drunken all night programming session, most people shouldn't be worried with what color they chose to make their background. Easy to use and very helpful when sending files. Doesn't bog down my phone when sending e-mails with drop box attachments. Sends like a regular e-mail. I highly recommend...and it's free, quit complaining...
It’s Alright
by Firey432 on 2015/02/28 02:27
Don’t get me wrong.. I like this app and 9/10 times, it works flawlessly. My only issue is the way that photos and files are organized makes it very difficult to browse anything. For example, if I added a file to a folder with 100 other images, viewing under “Files” is a long list. If I view under “Photos”, some newly uploading pictures that probably weren’t created “recently” drop to months ago which makes looking for them very difficult. Also, their free space has been quite generous to me. Although this doesn’t affect my rating, it annoys me how Dropbox offers 1TB for $10 a month or their pro services. Sorry, but as a consumer, I’m just more tempted to try Google Drive or OneDrive as they offer 100GB for $2. Since I currently use only 40GB, I see no reason to pay so much for space, especially when using a 128GB SSD MacBook, therefore I can’t even store that much on a normal basis. I was a huge fan of Dropbox, as everything with it works flawlessly, but the pricing option is just really poor.
Extremely positive--love this app
by zappabeefheartfan on 2010/09/27 16:01
I am just delighted with Dropbox and with this app. I use dropbox constantly for my work, almost exclusively to work on word files. Havn't yet used it for larger files, like photos or music, but that should work too. So far, its perfect. I've created several folders to share with colleagues and with family and its just great to have the access. I made one for my son, for example, so he could save his homework in a file where he could always access it (at school for example when he forgets to bring it!) and where I can look at it, even when I am traveling (using the iphone app)!!. I find the dropbox iphone app works very well with on-phone text editing programs, like quickoffice. Quickoffice costs $10 but dropbox is free as long as you only use 2 GB. Thats not a lot or a huge amount, depending on what you need to do. For me 2GB is just fine, and I am loving this app.
There's a huge Problem...Live Photos
by Nanananana53737 on 2016/01/30 21:28
I love Dropbox so much! It is truly my daily file storage driver for keeping all of my files, folders, and images in there! But....I am hesitating to store my photos in there, actually, simple because of the lack of Live Photos support. Guys, it doesn't make sense to me that the second iOS 9 came out, you jumped out of your way to implement new features such as Spotlight search, 3D Touch, etc. but failed to implement one of the most precious features which is the support for Live Photos. Because of the lack of its availability, I am keeping my Live Photos originals onto my phone just in case I want to jump ships (which I really don't want to do)! Without the implementation of Live Photos support, your app is deadly mediocre despite the fact of how much you publicize your photo and video upload! Please please please...Implement this in the NEAR, NEAR future & if I don't see it by then, I am afraid that I will have to find an alternative. Thanks for everything you do & am waiting for a response! :)
Life Saver
by Non ya business! on 2014/05/30 17:01
Dropbox is one of the most important apps I own. A week before my phone was stolen, I had gotten this app and uploaded my entire camera roll and was able to get all of my photos back. It's also useful to save storage on my phone because I can just upload my photos and then delete them from my camera roll, but still be able to view them in the app. But I only have 2 problems with it: 1.) I would like there to be an edit option so I can crop my photos, because it's really annoying when I crop a photo on my phone and then when I upload it, it uncrops it. 2.) I don't like the fact that the app has to be open in order to upload the photos on my camera roll. It takes a really long time and I don't want to have to wait for it to finish, and I don't want to leave it open in case my phone becomes over heated from being open to long. Overall this is a great thing to have and I highly recommend getting it.
The Best!
by noalarms on 2015/09/26 17:39
You know what's nice about this app? I never think about it. I've been using Dropbox since it was available to the public and I don't think I've ever had a single problem with it. It's there when I need it and working in the background when I don't. For all the people complaining about the cost and only having a few gigs of free storage, please calm down. This company should get paid for what they do. Do you work for free? I don't think so. The free level of Dropbox is to show you how it works so you can try it before you buy it. I tried it for a few years until I needed more space and then I started paying. You can go get better pricing or free options from other companies but from my experience they're not as good. Plus, you have to ask yourself how some of these other companies can give so much free space away. What are they getting in return from you?
A totally essential app
by adaptiveagile on 2017/03/19 16:27
Dropbox has saved me so much time with its built in scanning features. I take pictures of documents with either my iPad or iphone and get lightweight, perfect PDFs for filing. Zero complaints about the app. Moreover the new convert to scan features make this the killer filing system app. Only downside is that they cash your trashed items, which show up on your history. That is a privacy violation that is unacceptable. I expect they will address this issue in an update because I know a lot of people are upset with this policy. That aside, the best app around for remote storage and document management. The scan technology they use beats any of the scanner apps I've purchased or tried by a mile. Their black and white render, for example has the best quality of any scanner app, without jagged edges on straight lines. Masterpiece app -- just fix the bloody caching of privately disposed data please.
How to fix crashing in 1.5
by h_nodder on 2012/06/15 01:15
I wanted the new capability of moving/deleting multiple files at once with version 1.5, so I upgraded from the previous version on my 4th generation iPod Touch running iOS 5.1.1. Like other reviewers, I found that 1.5 crashed after I entered my passcode. I deleted the app and reinstalled it (this has apparently fixed other apps' upgrade problems), logged into it again and set the Passcode Lock, and it works fine now (Your Mileage May Vary). The only thing I lost is the "favorited" (starred) status of selected files; I needed to favorite them again so they would be stored locally on my device. This delete and reinstall actually helped me clean out some favorites which I really wasn't using, so it freed up a little more space on my iPod. I mostly use Dropbox to read PDF files -- it's actually more convenient than some other free, dedicated PDF reader apps.
Read this
by everette23 on 2016/07/18 20:37
Dropbox is the only good cloud file service, I'm convinced of this. I've used it for years, and despite the company's troubles it's remained the most solid. I've tried iCloud Drive, OneDrive, Google Drive (which ranks a close 2nd for me), and I also use Creative Cloud as a designer and design student. Dropbox is the only app that integrates deeply with Office documents, PDFs, and it handles Adobe files perfectly acceptably. It's the only cloud file service that lets you edit files directly on mobile devices, whereas other cloud services make copies for you to edit. Then you have to delete the old file, move the edited one to the proper place, etc. etc. It's probably the only service that I *happily* pay for to support the team who makes it. Yes, it has its difficulties but they are amount to far less than other cloud services. Hope my good review offsets the bad, Dropbox is the best.
The best, the very best
by Sonichedgehogback on 2010/07/21 00:59
This is one of my 2 most used apps on the iPhone and iPad. You say it's simple, an everyday idea right...? Wrong. The extent of integration, seamlessness and performance of drop box is stunning. My wife and I use this app to exchange files on a regular basic. Eg she just scanned a doc on her widows box and put it in drop box, then i picked it up on my iPad. I just needed a pic transferred from my iPhone to my desktop and I was going to use it again, but got taken over by a bout of gratitude and decided to write a quick review. Despite my extensive use of db i am not a paying customer. I don't need the extra space - still o would be happy to pay... Hint to the company - give me a reason, any simple reason and my credit card will come peeling out. Example - fine grained sharing - let me create users and selectively give them access to files... I think that would be a real killer app.
Ok product with lousy support
by P9thon 4rms on 2014/12/10 22:20
This was my main cloud service for a couple of years. Recently I added Google Drive for improved file sharing and increased memory--Google offers a lot more for less, so I can store my media there as well as documents. The other day I fired up my old laptop, and apparently DropBox took that as a signal to delete any files and folders that were added since the last time that laptop was used--about 2012. While I still technically have all of my files--DB caches them in Windows--all of the organization is gone, so I have about two thousand business files organized alphabetically. Their help articles didn't offer any solution that worked, and I spent a couple of hours Googling for a solution without success. Supposedly DB can fix this by rolling your folders back to a previous date, but as of today it's been ten days and while they did respond to my initial request with an email, they have not performed the rollback and have ignored my three followup requests. I'm in real estate and my entire business is in those files, so my life is a mess right now.
New to the 'cloud'
by Bomkweesha on 2011/05/28 04:45
As my title says, I'm still learning the ropes as far as navigating storing information in the cloud. I've heard nothing but the highest praise of Dropbox from several of the blogs out there and I decided to give it a try. I am now a total believer! I love the fact that I can save things to Dropbox and always have access to them, for quick reference! For me it also cuts down on the need to carry one more thing around! If I need to look at a document I can easily pull it up on my iPad and look it over. Probably the only thing stopping this from being a perfect app for me is the fact that (at least from iOS devices) you cannot edit text from the app. I have several pieces of writing stored and I would love to be able to change a sentence or add another paragraph from the app versus having to open Pages or another word processing app that you can't save back into. Otherwise, this app is amazing!!
Horrible naming scheme for photos
by Jason Jones 3 on 2015/02/18 08:50
I use Dropbox a lot from my desktop and would use more from my phone but the app offers no options for Tate naming of photos you upload. I want to keep the same name as used by the phone. No messing with any of the meta/exif data either. If there are name conflicts then let me decide how to resolve and offer choices like windows. Currently the app names photos with the month and day and time. Two years of data will sort together alphabetically. Very lame. The carousel app is better for naming but still does not offer a choice. If you don't upload all you photos with dropboxes apps, you'll have duplicates around with the iOS name and the Dropbox name. Very very annoying. Google drive doesn't do this. The other file manager apps for iOS keep the iOS filename and don't tweak the meta data either. If they didn't exist, I'd cancel my Dropbox subscription altogether. The new integration into iOS 8 is very cool. If they just fixed the naming scheme, it would be a perfect solution. Now I avoid it for mobile use.
Better than Google Docs
by bfcoats2 on 2010/08/23 21:27
I rarely write a 5/5 star review, but this app has earned it. Dropbox is easier to use (iPhone and computer versions), supports more file formats, and comes with twice the free storage than Google Docs. This app is great to use as part of my flight training business, especially with the favorites being available when you are not connected to the Internet (i.e. airplane mode). It also works on operating systems as old as Windows '98se (I haven't tried any older OSs) or as new as Windows 7. Highly recommended, this app is a "must have" for any businessman, teacher, or anyone else with an iPhone trying to avoid carrying their laptop around with them everywhere they go. I keep my flight and ground lesson plans in my dropbox so that I can access them from my iPhone, even in the cockpit or on the tarmac -- anywhere on (or above) planet Earth!
Dropbox good. Pro needs heads up re: losing Carousel
by ShaneStreet on 2015/11/05 04:40
The Dropbox software has been great, but please cancel my Dropbox Business trial ASAP and re-enable my Carousel capability. Losing Carousel is a deal breaker, as it has been the most essential value to my small business. If not for this, I would give Dropbox 4-5 stars. I started the trial to expand into accessing more of my non-picture/video files, but was surprised to lose the ability to share with & present picture files with clients as planned just before I needed to do so after starting the trial business upgrade. I am not interested in paying for two accounts. Please let me know when it is possible to automatically back up my camera roll via a business account and manage albums conveniently from there in a manner similar or better than Carousel. Side note only - for what it is worth: I like having Carousel as a backup and means to share picture and video files. The only reason that I do not use Carousel more (more than when I just cannot burn up the memory for certain project albums on the mobile device) is because I cannot modify the pictures in Carousel. Also, pictures edited on my mobile device's camera roll software do not get uploaded automatically to DropBox. That includes, at a minimum, the ability to rotate pictures. The ability to crop and improve photo quality details would be the icing on the cake.
Great Addition to an already Terrific Service
by ericschwartz on 2009/09/29 21:42
I am a fairly new Dropbox user and am using their free version that offers me 2GB of space. Dropbox has been great syncing my some of my files on my work PC and my home MAC. Having the ability to now access my files anywhere in the world is awesome! I going to re-evaluate how I use Dropbx because I will now have access to my files anywhere. Just as described, the App is easy to use. As soon as I logged into the App using the same user name and password as my Dropbox account, a new iPhone introduction pdf snyced to my computer. That was fast! I like the ability of emailing out a link to any of my files in case I need that option. For a future version, I would like to see a search function that can look through all of my folders to speed of the process even more.
Worse every update
by most original nick on 2014/02/02 18:21
Have been using DB for several years and have no complaints with desktop version. HATE ipad version more and more with each update. It seems all that each update does nothing but add gloss while removing substance and makes the app increasingly slow, clunky, and annoying. Way too stripped down (can't rename files, for example.) HATE the intrusiveness of the left menu--figured out you have to tap a photo to view full screen, but still wondering why you can't just collapse that effing menu with an "x" or arrow instead of a gesture. Not fond of the initially baffling "..." thing to do two very common tasks (select and upload) while icons I never use (favorites, photos, settings) reside in valuable screen space along the bottom. As for the settings, NOTHING about the interface can be customized..why is this placed so prominently? Cannot express how much I HATE that I must give DB location data to upload photos. Everyone knows this is pure corporate BS and not a technical requirement--together with all else, it is the last straw for me. Bye bye DB ipad!
!!! DELETE DROPBOX APP AND REINSTALL - JUST UPGRADING CAUSES IT TO START CRASHING !!!
by DB4IP on 2012/06/15 05:25
In order to use the latest update, you will need to uninstall the app and then reinstall it. Just upgrading it will cause the app to start crashing. This crashing cannot be corrected by rebooting. This used to be a 4 star app but now I give it 3 stars due to this problem. Dropbox should have tested their upgrade process much better. The Dropbox app is a very nice app. It allows me to store my documents in the cloud so any of my devices can access them. It works cery well and is very useful since many apps support Dropbox integration. However, the Deopbox iOS app is rather limited in that it lacks many file management features such as move, copy, rename, create and delete folders, zip and unzip, etc. I should not have to use the desktop version for such features. Please add them ASAP and the Dropbox app would be great, merit 5 stars and eliminate my need to have to resort to other apps such as iFiles.
Great
by skartreuse on 2013/12/09 00:10
Great design and all-around service. I've been using Dropbox for years for school work and it's saved me plenty of times when I forgot to pick up my papers from my printer. I really wish you could improve the music player though. I was running out of space on my iPad so I had to delete all my music. I was hoping to use Dropbox or an app that plays music off of Dropbox but none of those work. The music player right now isn't best. It doesn't have loop, loop one, shuffle, etc. It also takes a lot of time to load each song before they actually play. If you do consider improving the player, also think about how some people organize their music in a folder called Music and sub folders by artists and albums. Perhaps make an option to only play certain folders and/or play all sub folders.
why not add delete from camera roll?
by tacoburn70 on 2016/06/12 14:53
I use OneDrive more then Dropbox because I have an Office 365 subscription paid up until dec 2017, which includes 1TB of space for me & my whole family as well (up to 5 accounts). What I don't understand though, is why these cloud drive services, none of them, have an option to delete photos & videos from camera roll after upload?? getting em off the phone is whole point in using that feature in first place. Also an option to restore select photos back to your camera roll. sharing to facebook could share the photo instead of link to the photo too. Another wanted feature might be adding auto syncing of music & documents too. with most iphone users being limited to 16gb of space with each additional 16 costing $100 each, most iphone users are looking for that option.
Handy and solves a big iPhone/iPod Touch deficiency
by EJonC on 2010/02/20 18:42
IMHO, one of the biggest deficiencies of the iPhone/iTouch is the difficulty in storing files locally. I travel internationally, where data rates are obscene, so I like to store important documents (flight schedules, hotel info, key documents, etc) locally before I go. There are several applications that let you do this (Files, FileDev, etc), but they're all awkward to use when you're dealing with dynamic IP addresses. This is the *perfect* solution within the limits imposed by Apple themselves (I'd much prefer actual access to the file system, but Apple doesn't allow that). You can access your documents easily, and by simply marking them "favorite" a local copy is kept that you can look at when you don't have web access. I haven't used it long, but so far it's worked flawlessly.
Dropbox still the best
by Lazy Robot on 2011/04/20 06:48
Now that everyone wants a piece of cloud services business, there are so many apps that claim to offer similar services as dropbox. I've tried zumodrive, and despite the high ratings, it is no where as good. The computer program and iPad app for zumodrive are very buggy, I still have the crap sample music in my iPad zumodrive library even after deleting it everywhere else. Dropbox is way more reliable and it's even better now with the recent updates. Dropbox can be used to open word/pdf documents that you download from the web, which you are effectively uploading to dropbox (theres no folder to actually save documents onto your iPad homepage, so you can only send documents to dropbox via other apps such as pages or safari). But it works nonetheless. Zumodrive cannot do any of this.
Turn off default settings
by Johnger1234 on 2013/10/14 18:48
I am just tying out drop box to transfer photos and videos to and from my iPhone 5s to my IPad3. One option I do not like is that "Camera Upload" is turned on by default. I would prefer that Camera Upload is turned off by default at first use. Then users can turn it on if they choose. Video files take up a lot of room and I don't want every video file on my iPad or iphone uploaded to Dropbox only those that I want to transfer between iDevices. Also I don't want things to automatically sync to all my devices by default. People can turn these options on if they want these options but these settings should not be turned on by default. It sounds a little like what Facebook does by turning on options by default when certain options should be turned off by default. Maybe if a message could pop up at first use informing users of these setting so they can turn them on if the individual user wants the option.
3 glaring issues

I have never bothered to take the time to review an app, but these are things you want to know and may affect how you feel about downloading this app. 1. Upload rate is horrendous. It takes minimum two minutes to upload a standard iPhone picture. (I have 600) 2. Which brings me to the second part of this issue...Even if I authorize the app to run in the background, it stops loading when you leave the app (I am also on wifi and plugged in) 3. Which brings us to the third issue, and my concern resounds on a deeper note... WHY CANT I AUTHORIZE THE APPLICATION TO CONTINUE TO UPDATE IN THE BACKGROUND, WITHOUT GIVING YOU PERMISSION TO ACCESS AND TRACK MY CURRENT LOCATION, AT ANY TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE APP IS EVEN RUNNING? I pay you to safeguard my documents, not collect additional information about where I am every minute of every day. This is an invasion of my privacy and it does not help the app to function. The only thing your app (you) need to be concerned with is whether or not I have wifi at a given moment or whether I authorize you to use cellular data to operate in the background. Considering I pay you to preserve my documents and pictures, there is no reason that I should be required to allow you to invade my privacy and give you more information than is necessary for you to safeguard my documents and take my money. Please explain why you need to know where I am 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Keep page open?

I use this app a lot for viewing things for study. I used to be able to open the app, go to the document I wanted, and then flip through other apps. Then, when I would return to Dropbox, the document would remain open for viewing. Since the new update, after a few minutes of the app not being in use, it goes back to the main menu instead of the document I was viewing. It's so frustrating to have to keep going thru my folders to open up the document again! I hope this will change over the next update... Still hoping it will change.... Please!!!!!! Thank you. Also it'd be good to see the time and iPad information at the top like you used to. Now the document takes up the whole screen! Please please please these are easy changes...it used to be this way so make it go back!!!
iOS 8 integration, particularly doc picker, is bad
by Bud Gibson on 2014/11/04 14:30
Dropbox is integral to my workflow. I have all of my most important documents on there, and I use the packrat service to maintain copies of my files over time in case I delete any by accident. I have also integrated it in with a number of my other services. Effectively, it is my digital hub. HOWEVER, I have one giant complaint, enough to knock the iOS app from 5 stars to 3 stars and make me start to consider alternative services. Dropbox has done a frustratingly incomplete integration with iOS 8's new doc picker. For instance, go to any iWork app and hit the plus sign. You'll see a list of services from which you can open files. Go to the more item, and it will appear that you can select dropbox to appear in this list, but no, you can't. Sure, you can toggle the dropbox switch, but it never appears as one of your choices when it comes time to selecting files. Box, a dropbox competitor, does implement this functionality quite well, so it IS NOT AN IWORK PROBLEM. I get the impression that dropbox is fighting on too many fronts at once. They want you to route your mail through mailbox and always back up your photos to them. What I want is a way to conveniently access my documents across multiple devices. Period. I am now actively considering alternatives to dropbox. They need to fix this functionality.
Impressive Customer Care

I must say that I was never able to use Dropbox the way I thought it worked BUT when someone hijacked an email account of mine THE ONLY COMPANY that realized just how serious this was and replied to me IMMEDIATELY was Dropbox. They not only told me what to do to protect myself in their App...they sent me a long list of all other Apps I should make changes in regardless of status of competitive apps! Their #1 concern was ME! The email company that I pay for annually still has not fixed my situation, they don't seem to even understand the circumstances. Dropbox is now an app I will go out if my wY to learn how to use properly because they want to help you and help you with other apps that don't benefit them! I hope many people read this review because I am not easily impressed!
Not bad but organized horribly

Overall, no complaints with the app. It functions very well and I especially love the new fingerprint security access feature. I've never had any issues at all with it crashing or losing files or an inability to retrieve files. My only complaint is more aesthetic and centers on how it sorts your files and folders. It's very heavily focused on providing access to individual files outside of their respective sub folders (organized by date last opened/saved). I organize my files specifically by folders and not having those right in front of me in the same fashion I would see it in the Finder window on my Mac is a little annoying. You can search by file name but sometimes I don't recall what I saved something as but could pull it up quickly via its folder. But besides that, it does as advertised.
Wonderful App So Far
by jbaranski on 2009/09/30 00:49
This app is very useful to me and functions well as far as I've used it. The idea to favorite items works well. Playing audio files is great too. However I'm already having issues with it. For one, there is no zoom function for images, which is very useful at times and something I use quite often. Also, I find myself unable to edit even simple text files. I happen to use a .txt file to communicate back and forth with someone, which is great and was looking forward to doing this in the mobile app. I do realize this is a 1.0 release and will likely be improved upon, so these are simply my suggestions for improvements that could be made. Oh and some sort of sorting option would be nice. Good job on the app. I hope to see even more from you all.
