Children Doing The Quality Control
by Joliver332 on 2018/10/22 18:07
Most of my files are missing... no indication of them being updated or syncing or a data wheel turning... just says folder is empty.... been waiting four hours now no files... is quality control just an out dated concept? Where are my files? Update: now photo uploads stall after 2 photos. Rebooting the phone gives the ability to load 2 more before stalling again
Awesome app! At least it used to be.
by ATX media guy on 2018/10/22 17:16
APP DEVELOPERS! WHEN YOU GET YOUR APP WORKING WELL, STOP MESSING WITH IT! I use Dropbox daily on my PC, iPhone and iPad. It is incredibly useful. I put manuals, school homework (which gets shared with my grandson’s mom), pictures and so much more! I’ve gotten in the habit of downloading every owner’s manual for every tool, device, camera I have. I often refer to it on my iPad. There’s the recent problem. Dropbox has become unreliable on my Apple devices. I get the “loading” circle for 10 or 15 minutes before anything shows up! Sometimes contents never appear. Dropbox used to be instantaneous. Oh, and I have a 220 mbps download speed, so that’s not the issue. If they fix this I’ll enthusiastically give it 5 stars. But right now it’s almost useless.
Automatic camera uploads taken away
by upper case JD on 2018/10/22 16:21
Taking away a feature from legacy users is really disappointing, especially something as useful as auto uploads.
New update makes us pay
by Mexican 23 20 on 2018/10/22 00:53
The new update makes people with the basic to pay if they want to save offline files , that’s absurd
Garbage
by User20181 on 2018/10/21 20:47
Garbage app full of error. Videos not loading properly, confusing to navigate, slow, constant notifications asking you to upgrade your plan. Been trying to skip through my files on this websites. It jumps from files #202 to #2 even though I’m trying to see #203, #204 and so on. I can’t even download stuff because it says “error downloading your file”
change the logo/icon it’s really ugly
by meantomatoes on 2018/10/20 10:03
maybe to a white background and then a blue box
I hate the app and website
by @Sigil on 2018/10/20 08:30
They are really pushing this app for business users. The UI and "features" are for business and collaboration users. Why can't I sort the files by kind with folders at the top? If I am moving a file, will I be moving it into an other file or a folder? I can't export anything out of the app. I think it is time for me to move on.
Sadly - since iOS 12 can’t view files
by Neotk9711 on 2018/10/20 06:15
I deleted and reinstalled app but to no avail. Viewing files just spins and file never renders. Same file I can open on mobile safari but not in the App. Contacted their support and got a lame response to delete and reinstall app - did that but didn’t help. I have been a paid subscriber for years and it is surprising to see such a basic bug.
New update now I can’t attach files from Dropbox to email
by dbepstein on 2018/10/17 23:07
I tested this with google drive iCloud Drive everything works as before. Dropbox when I select the file it doesn’t attach it gives me the option to change it name
Saving Offline
by Byhiu on 2018/10/17 20:34
I’m wanting to make a certain folder in my Dropbox available offline. But I need to make sure before I do so. That the contents of this folder that I’m wanting to make offline to view whenever with data or not.. that it won’t be automatically updated into my iPhone camera roll. Or put into a folder in my iOS camera roll. That would be BAD... very very BAD. so that’s my concern. I need to make sure that these sensitive confidential files won’t be seen ANYWHERE else except offline in the Dropbox app. And not in my personal camera roll. Please advise. Respectfully, Dropbox 1TB user. :)
Freezes
by KillerKane0861 on 2018/10/17 19:24
I have loved this app since the beginning. But since the last few updates, it is constantly freezing on iPhone. I have 40 files that refute upload. They need to fix this.
Wow!
by odog1 on 2018/10/17 02:51
Awesome app, love it!
What did you do?
by SnookyP on 2018/10/16 11:00
I used to be able to attach documents to emails when replying to customers requests for info. Now when I select a document to attach it takes me to a window to change the file name! HUH?The app also hangs up when opening a PDF.
Ugh
by Lulukattt on 2018/10/16 02:48
This stupid prove your not a robot verification is extremely annoying being asked constantly.
Hyperlinks
by Blastrx on 2018/10/15 19:10
I have spreadsheets saved in drop box that have hyperlinks. However, while the hyperlinks are blue and underlined as they should be, nothing happens when I tap on them. Can you update the app to open hyperlinks like it should?
Update is a huge #fail
by hnp1995 on 2018/10/14 14:59
The current update for iPad freezes whenever I try to open a pdf in acrobat. Please expedite a fix. Thank you I appreciate the developers’ suggestion to leave a more detailed note in the support area. I did so. The app in iPad continues to freeze and quit. This is a major life lesson: do not rely on cloud services. My workflow and life have utterly been disrupted by this failed update. External hard drives are inexpensive with massive storage capacities and are safe from predation. I plan on transferring all my cloud data to an external hard drive and have a safer, cheaper storage solution.
DropBox is becoming more and more useless as time passes
by Hardcore Trek Tek on 2018/10/14 06:37
DropBox seriously needs to update its free offsite personal storage size and they need to offer more affordable storage size tier-ing. 2.2 GBs of free personal data storage is a joke in this day and age. At least offer a free tier that is the same as Apple's and maybe consider offering double that, 10 GBs, for free! Google Drive offers a free 15 GBs of free personal storage. DropBox needs to offer personal offsite data storage at pricing for 50, 100, 200 and 500 GBs storage tiers. Dropbox devs are greedy. I don't want or need to pay for 1 TB of data storage at $10 per month. I can get by with say 50 to 200 GBs of offsite storage just fine. I had hoped to use this along side iCloud to upload both video and photos for download to my iPad at a later time. I haven't tried any movies or videos, yet, but my experiences with photos is less than desirable. I upload high quality Jpeg images to DropBox only to have DropBox drop the quality and resolution of my original upload to an image resolution that's less than desirable. And, also, many times DropBox refused to load the photo/image at any resolution. The high res file never got downloaded to my iPad. Only a low resolution one. Plus, there is no progress bar to know how long an image is taking to download fromDropBox to my iPad. Everyone is giving this app grat reviews, but so far, I am not seeing this or the benefits. My Photos are between 8 and 15 MBs in data size and have been reduced to fit the iPad's viewable screen size or close. Totally worthless for photos if I can't get what I, originally, uploaded to down load to my iPad. Plus, there customer service and support, so far, has been totally useless. I 've been waiting for days for an answer or resolution to this problem and no responses from theDropBox support team. This app maybe good for documents, but so far for photos and images, it leaves a lot to be be desired.

Troubles
by MafiaAlex on 2018/10/14 00:03
So I’ve used Dropbox for a year or two. Been a great app. Unfortunately the last two weeks maybe less I’ve had issues with media. If I have an MP3 file, I can’t listen to it. Or I’ll have to reset the app multiple times to even play it. The app crashes a lot. As of now it’s barely usable. I hope the Devs see this and look into it. It’s not my device or connection as all of my files are offline compatible. Hopefully they fix it so I can bump it back up to a 5 star. Love Dropbox
Freezes constantly
by Skyscan305 on 2018/10/13 07:03
Clearly no technical support nor integration for older iOS devices. App freezes, can’t upload photos, can’t select photos, can’t do anything. Dropbox used to be the best, now they’re one of the worst.
Not working )))))))): so baaad
by dr.hanan.a on 2018/10/12 23:41
After the new update i cannot upload easily i cannot open the files easily i have to close the app and open it each time cause it freeeeeeze all the time with any action i need , my offline files are hard to access hard to upload them through email , the previous update was so flexible !!! Iam so disappointed its my fav storage app
Crashes
by FlyBobbyJones on 2018/10/12 19:52
For some reason, after the update, my Dropbox app keeps crashing every time I play one of my songs and freeze the screen....
Passcode compatability with Files app
by Stee-rider on 2018/10/12 11:26
I’ve used Dropbox for a long time, and the only real issue I have with it is that if you set up a passcode you can’t use it with Apple’s Files app. Other similar apps work fine with a passcode (eg Resilio Sync), so I know it can be done. This is actually enough that I’m less likely to use Dropbox for everyday file management. Overall it’s a great set-and-forget program, but it does need the passcode issue fixed. [Response to Developer response: It’s not impossible and it’s not out of your hands. The makers of Resilio Sync must know something you don’t know, because they actually do what you say can’t be done. Maybe you should drop them a line, because I really would like Dropbox to work properly with Files.]
Current version bugged??
by Wark88 on 2018/10/12 04:06
App works fine.. icon broken....
It won’t let me cancel
by Tom4Jesus on 2018/10/12 00:59
I’m hoping it won’t charge me. I’ve signed up for a free trial and it won’t let me cancel. Really hope it didn’t trick us into paying money because that would be very evil.
WHAT HAPPENED ?!
by SROSSM on 2018/10/11 18:28
My experience with the Dropbox app has been great up until just recently. It takes forever to open up folders to access them. Almost seems as if it freezes. Only after force closing and reopening a number of times am I able to access/view my files. Please fix !
Ugh.
by Lavjames on 2018/10/11 10:57
Was working great until some new app updates came along. Now the app freezes ALL the time. I have to go my desktop to get anything done. I’ve restarted my phone, deleted, reinstall app, nothing so far....
This worked great until the 10-10-18 update
by Warriorvamp on 2018/10/11 09:35
I am a paid subscriber. All my files are stored in Dropbox. Many are stored on device for work. I have to use my iPad for work. The latest update made my iPhone X and iPad 2018 Dropbox apps inoperable. All my files were removed from the device, and i cant open my files. Please fix! I have tried everything, including restarting the devices multiple times. The app locks up if i try to open anything.
WORST APP I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!!
by chfhghufhfucucbc on 2018/10/10 19:18
DO NOT EVER GET THIS APP!!! I WAS JUST TRING TO WATCH A VIDEO SOMEONE SENT ME AND ALL IT DID WAS MAKE ME PAY!!!!!!!!
Having problems with latest iOS Dropbox stuff
by Dsperk on 2018/10/10 14:29
When tries to search for a file it says “searching” and then abends. When try to load from folder says “loading” and eventually abends. Talked with Dropbox support but they couldn’t help me. Just upgraded to professional and this is what I get. I’m at a loss as to what to do.
Good app
by jackson2192 on 2018/10/09 20:50
Where it says home that should be more up more so I can see more without having to scroll up. There's so much white space for no reason.
Sharing
by frankster222 on 2018/10/09 15:43
The last update stated when sharing a document it DB will send the file and a link. IT DOES NOT SEND THE FILE. Just a link as usual.
Confusing
by sofia777 on 2018/10/09 13:30
Someone sent me a file that I can’t view. Tried downloading the app and it doesn’t appear in my phone. Super frustrating....
Never works for me
by alycewandering on 2018/10/09 04:32
Every time I try to use this app, it tells me to download it and sends me to the App Store, even though I already have it downloaded on my phone. I’ve only been able to successfully use it a couple times.
such a disappointment (app)
by ml baxley on 2018/10/08 12:28
cannot believe i pay for an app with this poor of design- my “recent” folders include a 2016 file and a 2017 folder- that never disappear. been like that for months. deleted and reloaded.
Not syncing, even on wifi
by Stayingintouch on 2018/10/08 12:12
Not showing file changes from past week, which I can see on other devices. Refreshing doesn't fix the issue. iPhone 10, on WiFi with cellular data enabled for the app Would be 4 stars otherwise, 5 if one could also browse through one’s Dropbox subfolders, like in a normal file manager.
Be Careful with the Free trial
by KCstone03 on 2018/10/08 02:43
Be careful with the free trial, once you put your credit card information they will charge you even if you cancel it early. I did cancel it like 5 days earlier from the trial expiration day and they still charged me.
Trying to cancel subscription but can’t
by So-so is all on 2018/10/06 23:34
It suggests that I should be able to cancel my subscription by using App Store...App Store shows I’m subscribed but doesn’t offer a way to unsubscribe. It was very easy to subscribe...why so difficult to unsubscribe???? Please help!
Thumbnail
by Mpfully1001 on 2018/10/06 16:07
My video files don’t have thumbnail images on them, and I can’t figure out how to fix that
Great app, need to clear cache
by CaptMikey73 on 2018/10/06 02:02
I use Dropbox almost daily, but without a way to clear the cache, it constantly chews up my storage on my iphone. There needs to be a way to clear the cache without uninstalling and reinstalling and signing back in. This needs to be the primary focus of app developers.
Rip off
by Buddhaneck on 2018/10/05 14:53
Upgraded to a new phone, backed up everything in iCloud twice, opened ap on new phone and all of my pics are totally gone! So upset
Dropbox
by bk5098 on 2018/10/05 11:37
This is not a user friendly app. I want my money back. Not happy with the product. It automatically signs you up for a monthly fee thru apple and I do not like. Please do not bill me

Glitchy AF
by Robvalhed on 2018/10/04 14:09
For the past week, files won’t open when I’m connected to Wi-Fi and files freeze all the time. No sorting feature in app. App getting worse and worse as time goes on.
Horrible
by nuyghjhv on 2018/10/04 05:21
The app just closes out every time I start it up so it’s unusable.
Heic formatted pictures update
by Vikramtiwari on 2018/10/04 04:48
I have been waiting for Dropbox to fix this issue for quite some time now but this is too stupid for Dropbox to ignore Heic formatted pictures in IPhone. Apple apparently introduced a new format to avoid pictures/videos taking too much space. But Dropbox have been coming up with bunch of useless updates almost every week but for some reason they have been avoiding the compatibility of HEIC formatted pictures... Please do something or you will lose one subscribed customer from next month onwards!!! Sincerely, Frustrated customer!
Something is wrong
by Wilkerson1214 on 2018/10/03 19:43
Every time I try to pull a picture from one of my folders it says file empty but two seconds later it shows pictures. Someone please help because if you don’t get this fixed I have lost all my pictures of my late husband.
I love Dropbox

Money
by pdawg907 on 2018/10/03 02:04
Was wondering why when I originally downloaded the app I was told I would get a monthly charge of .99 cents a month. Now you are charging me $9.99. I would appreciate a refund and a cancellation of my membership so I don’t get charged again. I was only using it to download a video and was going to void it after I was done. Thank you.
Becoming less useful
by ChurchOrganist on 2018/10/02 11:10
The app increasingly fails to preview some ascii text files, .jpg and PDF documents. As I use the app to show projects to team members, this is becoming a major headache.
Problem signing into drop box
by J39MD on 2018/10/02 06:07
I have been trying to sign in to Dropbox, but you keep telling me that my e-mail is invalid. My addresses are nuimage40@gmail & nuimage40@yahoo. I ave been using both these addresses for over 10 years & are both still active. So why can’t I get into Dropbox. You can reach me at either of those two e-mails or call 1 715-324-6166. Or 920-604-1500 Respectfully: Janet

Long Time User Now Very Upset
by kolgreat on 2018/10/01 06:35
I have the most updated version of the app. I just spent hours (yes HOURS) scanning documents for work and the app just crashed while saving. Everything I scanned is gone. I’ll be starting over with Google Drive. This is unacceptable.
Too expensive !
by goldengirl@3 on 2018/09/30 16:16
I am a senior citizen on a fixed income and although this was easy to navigate-in the long run on a annual basis too expensive! Thanks
Not wasting my money!!!
by bigglo300 on 2018/09/30 15:01
I signed up for the premium subscription by accident and I’ve tried so hard to get rid of it!! I can’t figure it out . It keeps redirecting me to a different page. This should be simple!!!
So awesome, so simple
by MpowerSkills on 2018/09/30 02:37
It’s everything you would hope for. One request: please allow edited pics to be uploaded instead of original pics
Terrible
by RedAMK on 2018/09/30 02:36
Worst app I’ve ever used to back up photos, etc. Firstly, it took over a week to back up 4,000 photos. There’s no excuse for it to have taken that long. Then, there was no way to save all of them to another device unless I went through all 4,000 and selected each one individually and selected to export and save image to phone. Garbage app, will never use again and will always tell everyone to avoid it.
Update causes crash
by Matthew Takes on 2018/09/29 17:35
What’s going on with the new update!? It’s crashing every time I use it. It’s the most frustrating thing because this is such an important tool for me. You’ve been so good Dropbox! Why now? Why ya gotta burn me like this?
Export multiple photos!
by Mahdjsjsndhdnd on 2018/09/28 14:59
Love Dropbox and the app just want to be able to export a whole photo or multiple photos to my iPhone camera roll at once!! Please add this feature.
Agreement to SHARE YOUR STUFF!!!?
by Morning Anime on 2018/09/27 23:48
Don’t download or agree. Read Drop Box agreement if you don’t mind sharing personal stuff to others
Former reviews
by Stymie0608 on 2018/09/27 18:09
Just like to say I’ve never been charged a dime and it is connected to all of my electronics! I thought I was computer illiterate but apparently not as bad as some. Thanks for great service!
Cancellation
by Mary tabler. on 2018/09/27 13:14
I downloaded this app not understanding exactly what it was for I would like to cancel my Dropbox thank you very much
Don't know what I'd do without it
by jvtunes on 2018/09/26 12:59
9/26/18 update - addition OF the ability to export the actual file along with link - MAJOR. Thank you! Haven’t tried it yet but will do the minute the update is finished. 5 minutes later: yep, it works beautifully. I sent a PDF via iMessage & rcvd. the file and the link. I use Dropbox throughout the day (mostly on an iPhone and an iPad). It is such a well designed piece of software - I really only intended to provide feedback to say thanks for giving me a longer list of directory choices when I want to file something. But that gets to the heart of things - they continue improving all the time (& are prompt about checking into problems).
Still forces you to create links when sharing.
by JasonTM1 on 2018/09/25 19:19
Latest update sends the actual file when exporting(thank you!) but still insists on creating a link to the file and putting that URL in the export too. Seems very sloppy to have all of these links created when you simply want to attach a file to an email, for example. Feels like a security weakness for Dropbox. I get that you want to share the Dropbox.com link for brand and lock-in reasons but sometimes this isn’t the best option.
Good luck trying to cancel your free trial
by Davidvibernum on 2018/09/23 23:31
I’m already spending close to three hours trying to cancel my free trial and going around and around and around, they will not get a penny out of me, if I couldn’t find a way to cancel I will cancel my credit card before the end of the day, they count on people giving up trying to cancel and being charged, not from me scums.
1/6
by whycantijustusemyname on 2018/09/22 23:55
I uploaded 6 photos. I couldn't see 5 of them because it says "the file can't be previewed, to view this file open it on your computer." The problem is I want to view these pictures on my phone, not my computer. That is my only goal in using this app. When I tried to delete them it told me there was an error and the files couldn't be deleted. I'm shook by how awful this app is.
No support/Tried to charge for a cancelled subscription
by Xvd68 on 2018/09/22 16:47
BEWARE! I cancelled my trial, the App Store tried to charge me a week before trial was up, then continued trying to charge me,fortunately I had removed my credit card before that because App Store said my valid card wasn’t valid, obvious App Store problem. Way to go Apple! Dropbox sends emails you can’t reply to, and there is no way to contact them thru app or website, I’d rate ZERO stars if I could, how are users supposed to get support? Reading other reviews, apparently there is none, that’s a major FAIL!!! I suppose the app works ok if you have access to high speed internet or work with tiny files, but if you don’t or are limited to a cell connection it’s pointless if working with large video files.
Plus Acct
by ItsDip on 2018/09/20 19:17
I would make sure if you are paying for a plus account you verify it on Dropbox website as well. I’ve been paying for it for months & just happened to take a look into it today to find I have a basic account. I went to my iTunes account & it shows a current subscription with Dropbox. I reached out to Dropbox who weren’t much help & reached out to Apple who referred me back to Dropbox. Ultimately I canceled the subscription & I will look for other means to get my data backed up.
Good but not great!
by ibrake4tanks on 2018/09/20 14:53
Everything about this app is great except for 1 feature which is exporting files. I have to export 1 at a time. There is no way for me to select all the photos I want to save to camera roll at once. If this change in the future I’ll change my review to 5 stars!
Little tweaks
by Her1217 on 2018/09/20 03:22
I wish there was a pause option for downloads. If I’m out of WiFi I have to relay on my data or cancel all the downloads until I’m able to continue doing so. Also, it would be great if the downloads from my camera roll would be in chronological order instead of alphabetical.
Nudey Nathan strikes again
by Flipendo101 on 2018/09/20 02:02
Just broke my phone but that doesn't matter, I backed all the nudes I've collected up to the drop box. New phone, old nudes, good day. 😎
Anti app
by khingz on 2018/09/19 20:18
I don’t use Dropbox regularly and have limited space on my phone. It would be nice to not be forced to download this app to use when I use it once every couple months and then delete it after I get my pix.
Zero support or instructions on how to get started
by RockNRowBoat on 2018/09/19 19:05
I took the 30 day free trial with DropBox plus i think it’s called where id get 1 tb if storage but I cant find how to get started. The app isn’t even showing up on my screen but when i go to the app store it says i have it. I’m canceling be because i cant even find it. Too bad, i wanted to move away from Google Photos where everything stays locked up so bad that none of my photos or vids can be viewed or downloaded. Is there a company like this that actually works somewhere?
A suggestion
by fa_daniel on 2018/09/19 16:21
Hey guys I have seen a bug in chrome, when I want to save a pdf file from chrome to Dropbox, i can't save it in my Dropbox folder unless I email it someone, please make it optional to save or send by email, sending an email is a must to save the file in Dropbox folder.
Stop changing stuff!
by Dudebraj9000 on 2018/09/18 09:03
Why do you guys constantly insist on changing the whole interface of the app? Seriously. Every update things are different, and not in a good way. Also, I can’t scroll down on my synced folders anymore. It makes my files disappear when I try. This started after the recent update. I’m not one of those “let me speak to your manager” kind of people but I just had to let you know how bad my experience has been so far. Please fix it, and leave it that way unless there’s a really important bug to fix. Also gave you 5 stars because I know you’re hard working people over there and I pay for pro. Don’t hate the app, just hate the constant changes to the overall look of the app that honestly seem more like a step backward than forward.

It’s a great app and lets me save allot of things but it would even be more helpful if you guys could add a feature where we can customize the photos of each file. Just to give it a extra touch. Just saying small details matter!!
scam

What the HEIC!
by rnathkdev1 on 2018/09/17 02:03
I was not aware that saving as HEIC stripped the photo of portrait mode and any other filter/effect that has been applied to it. This led to me losing a ton of great photos! Could have at least warned.
Concerning
by Jd'snana on 2018/09/16 20:27
I downloaded the basic plan thinking it’s free. I do not want this and do not use it! If you charge for the basic plan it should say upfront. I do not see where you charge for the basic plan but see other reviewers say you charge $99.00 after I downloaded it! I have deleted this from my iPhone and iPad and will not use it.
The worst app
by Iamawesome29 on 2018/09/16 19:19
Bad customer support
What did you do ?
by AudioGui on 2018/09/15 11:34
I went to bed with 4gb of free space. Tried to upload a 17 min vid I took to my Dropbox app and I wake up to my phone saying storage full and the video hasn’t even uploaded. So what happened because it’s obviously this app!? Please fix asap

Using Dropbox has helped me in keeping everything in a safe and easy to use platform space. My favorite feature is the ability to scan an upload documents just by taking a picture of it.

Somebody needs more schooling. The last update is just a bust.

Annoying
by Warfstache2020 on 2018/09/14 23:58
It’s kinda cool to have personal files and everything but every time someone sends me a link for Dropbox it’s always telling me to sign in or get the app, even though I have it and haven’t signed out since I got it
It's sooo slooooow...
by thebasher on 2018/09/14 01:05
About a year ago I tried to use Dropbox for photo and video backup from my iPhone so I could clear up some space....It was so slow it was useless. I literally had to upload 1 file at a time or it flat out would not work. Fast forward to today. It's the exact same thing. I've been trying to backup 64 files (videos less than 60 seconds long shot on my iPhone 5) and it's exactly the same thing. To make sure it wasn't my connection I sent a 1.5 gig file to a client via WeTranfer to test and it only took about 20 minutes. On the laptop I have no problems but the iPhone app just doesn't cut it.
Useless
by Actorguytim on 2018/09/13 14:00
This is without a doubt the most useless app I have ever encountered. It has single handedly destroyed and made every picture inaccessible. I’ve deleted it from every device I own.
Scam
by JCZumba on 2018/09/13 13:01
This app used to be free. I didn’t know there’s a monthly charge which I really don’t need. I uploaded this app because it’s the only way I can view the pics my friend forwarded to me. I’m not interested in using this app. How can I cancel the membership I’m being charge when I only used it once just to view the photos forwarded to me. There should be a way for us non-members to be able to view the photos shared to us by a member of this apps... :(
Cancel please
by Blessedviravira on 2018/09/12 20:20
I need to cancel this. I keep getting charged and have no idea what this is for.

Can’t save to photos
by Jamesdrewafhihxdyjbdr on 2018/09/12 01:20
Can’t save a photo from Dropbox to Photos. It doesn’t ask for permission, and there’s no option in preferences to allow Dropbox access to photos.
Don’t upgrade!
by Gracefulpawg on 2018/09/11 22:56
They will take your money with NO WAY to contact them. I had the basic for a while and once I ran out of space I upgraded to the premium. My purchase will not sync to my account and now I’m out my money and still have no access to my account. Then when you try to contact them you find out that there is no way to directly contact them and no categories to match you issue which in turn mean you are screwed. So incredibly ridiculous.
The best app!
by dansdclens on 2018/09/11 22:36
Thanks, Im using Dropbox long time ago, but the scanner is the best feature! Thank you so much! 🖤
Oops!!!

I down loaded this app and realized after that is was the wrong appt. How do I delete and make shur I don’t get charged for this?
Did something change in the past 2 weeks?!
by 35madscientist on 2018/07/27 03:09
I looked up Dropbox and the only reason I installed it (on my iPad) was so I could have a very little bit of space for the brushes I was going to upload to Procreate. Not much space at all. That was an option I could choose and not pay anything for it. I would NEVER have downloaded the app if I was going to be charged at any time. I *don’t* do subscriptions. I knew the amount of space was really small, but so was the amount my brushes needed. I then see $99 on my credit card statement! I knew the amount seemed odd. I see people reviewing it saying $75 is too much...NONE of this was on there before I downloaded it. I looked at everything. I chose to use the free version that had very limited options. It did not say this was a trial and would change. I don’t want this and I would really appreciate it if you would refund that $99. I don’t buy apps or subscriptions like that for a reason! What’s written now is different than when I downloaded the app. Again, I never would have downloaded it. Please, please refund my money!
Too much money for notta lotta “service”
by The Notorious t.i.g on 2018/07/12 00:39
After the recent update, DropBox stopped working properly for camera-roll upload on my iPad. Their solution? Remove the app, forget the network, fully restart the iPad, re-connect to the network, and re-install the app. Seriously? Good thing I have nothing else to do ... oh, wait. Basement flooded. So yeah, I have something else to do that's rather urgent. Good news is that yes, this did in fact resolve the issue, but really, I have other things to do in my life than reset apps with updates that fail. Especially when paying $75/month for the business version. For $75 a month I expect a MUCH better UI, amazing support, in-file search (not just the file titles), and so much more. Instead, we get the un/re-install merry-go-round, an ok UI, low-availability support (US normal business hours only), and an amazingly klugey sync setup. Heaven help you if your Mac has an external drive. What happens when you get a new Mac? It downloads everything from Dropbox again, even though all I did was remove the USB plug from the old machine to the new. Good job, Dropbox. Well done. Now I gotta wait for 4T of data to re-synch. Their super awesome support response? Well, we told you external drives might not work as expected. I’m totally looking for another service. Seriously, $900 a year for this? I feel like an idiot for locking myself into this “service”.
It’s useful BUT...
by Rhobson on 2018/07/12 12:43
My main complaint is the “recents” tab. I *REALLY* hate that there’s no way to disable or at least clear it. I use my Dropbox for a variety of files, from scanned docs to my pets photos, and sometimes opening the app to see a bunch of scanned bills when I just want to show my cat to an acquaintance can be frustrating, to say the least. BTW, the iCloud disaster should’ve reached everyone to not store nud3s in the “cloud”... 😂😂 With that said, Dropbox is useful. There’s little to discuss in this matter. BUT - and there’s always a BUT - use it with an extra layer of conscience. The “cloud” is just another person’s computer, after all. Don’t store your most private information there, especially in clear text or without any kind of cryptography. Think in-depth security, even though DropBox “promises” not to peek at your stored information, nothing really guarantees that someone will be able to access your info there.
Okay...
by SwordInTheLight on 2018/06/05 19:39
Hello, I just wanted to say that Dropbox is actually a really great place to store Office files, sorry if I was harsh earlier. I wouldn’t trust it with all of your files, because I’ve had a lot of issues with the iWork things and all that. The app itself works fine this way. Just wanted to say that. Suggestions: -Maybe we can do a one-time payment for a little extra storage? Like pay $1 for 2 extra gigs. I would definitely pay a few dollars for that. -Support for Apple files. As I’m writing this, there’s no way to edit Pages/Numbers/Keynote files from Dropbox. I use Pages a lot and so do a lot of other people, so you need to add support for those. -Once, I opened the Dropbox app and found that it wouldn’t let me create any Office files. (Like when I clicked “new file,” the option for creating Office files wasn’t there.) I signed out of Dropbox and tried to sign back in, but it said “there was an error” when I tried to sign in even though I got the sign-in info correct! This wasn’t a huge deal since I was able to log back in a half hour later with the create files feature back, but you might want to make sure it doesn’t happen again. -PowerPoint files take FOREVER to load up! (At least for me they do.) Please make it quicker. Thank you for reading!!!
Stop changing stuff!
by Dudebraj9000 on 2018/09/18 09:03
Why do you guys constantly insist on changing the whole interface of the app? Seriously. Every update things are different, and not in a good way. Also, I can’t scroll down on my synced folders anymore. It makes my files disappear when I try. This started after the recent update. I’m not one of those “let me speak to your manager” kind of people but I just had to let you know how bad my experience has been so far. Please fix it, and leave it that way unless there’s a really important bug to fix. Also gave you 5 stars because I know you’re hard working people over there and I pay for pro.

Five stars for completely disappointing me!!
by keilaa.17 on 2018/07/24 10:01
I’ve had this app for a while now. They promise to keep all your pictures safe “NO MATTER WHAT” which is all a lie! Let’s say u lose access to the account for a bit so you are inactive with it. Well without them even asking for your permission, they decide to erase your account and all the pictures you saved with it!! I completely believed them like an idiot and deleted my pictures and gave it to them so they can “KEEP IT SAFE” and without even consulting me or thinking about the fact that I have important pictures and things I actually wanted them to keep safe, they just erase and pretend like nothing ever happened. I completely do not recommend this app!! PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT!!! GET EVERALBUM OR EVEN GOOGLE PICTURES BUT DO NOT USE THIS!!!
Passcode compatability with Files app
by Stee-rider on 2018/10/12 11:26
I’ve used Dropbox for a long time, and the only real issue I have with it is that if you set up a passcode you can’t use it with Apple’s Files app. Other similar apps work fine with a passcode (eg Resilio Sync), so I know it can be done. This is actually enough that I’m less likely to use Dropbox for everyday file management. Overall it’s a great set-and-forget program, but it does need the passcode issue fixed. [Response to Developer response: It’s not impossible and it’s not out of your hands. The makers of Resilio Sync must know something you don’t know, because they actually do what you say can’t be done. Maybe you should drop them a line, because I really would like Dropbox to work properly with Files.]
Connect A computer
by Hotshtuf on 2018/08/06 20:35
Oh my gosh! I was having a difficult time logging in on my desktop - trying to remember my password and it wouldn’t let me in. I figured I’ll just continue to use the app on my phone, until I saw the “Connect A Computer” button. I pressed it and in a matter of seconds (I’d say less than 45secs) I was able to get into my account on my desktop computer. It was just three easy steps! I’ve been using Dropbox for almost 8 years and thought it was good but nothing outstanding enough to write a review until now. I just hate the little badge icon that appears on a document when saved in Dropbox. I hide it but it comes back... All good tho!
Review
by big-prof on 2018/07/15 01:53
The AI has deteriorated to the point that the uses has to guess the German gender of a word If you guess wrong no recourse the a few frames later same clue and same answers but previous answers wrong because they wanted the other gender. To me the crowns XP and gems do nothing and are useless. I will not use gems to buy health as this bypasses the learning in practice. The old habit of using practice to introduce new words or concepts continues. I tried using groups only to discover spent time getting right answer to get more XP‘s again bypassing learning. So dropped that. The apps AI used to allow for spelling errors but that feature has been lost. The practice section is useful but this section has a huge amount of repetition, which is a time waste to get a health. I have compared answers given in app with other translators and don’t get the apps results. I have used other translators results in app sometimes getting a correct sometimes getting a false. Therefore, not sure how much to trust the app and/or the other translator. Still sorting this issue out to determine trustworthiness of app or should it be dropped. For reference I only use the app with aids, not sure spending money for aid free buys me anything.
The one app I can’t live without
by Kaiaim on 2018/07/14 20:29
What can I say about an app that gives me access to everything I have from my cell phone- simple intuitive fail-free. The biggest tech mistake of my life was switching briefly to another service which lost my data and treated my like dirt when I asked for help. There are few things I’d like Dropbox to change but they aren’t specific to the app. The only app bug I’d like to see changed is the folder size limit which does not apply to desktop versions. it has been an inconvenience to break up one of my large folders, but still worth it to have my whole life with me anytime anywhere.
Saving Offline
by Byhiu on 2018/10/17 20:34
I’m wanting to make a certain folder in my Dropbox available offline. But I need to make sure before I do so. That the contents of this folder that I’m wanting to make offline to view whenever with data or not.. that it won’t be automatically updated into my iPhone camera roll. Or put into a folder in my iOS camera roll. That would be BAD... very very BAD. so that’s my concern. I need to make sure that these sensitive confidential files won’t be seen ANYWHERE else except offline in the Dropbox app. And not in my personal camera roll. Please advise. Respectfully, Dropbox 1TB user. :)
“Camera Roll” is not the same as iOS’s Camera Roll
by SeriouslyDave on 2018/08/31 07:31
Reply to the Developer Response: The Developer’s reply discussed automatic photo upload. However, I was not talking about automatic upload and did not use the term. I have modified my review to clarify. —- Review —- When manually selecting photos for upload from an iOS device, Dropbox is shows an iOS Moments view of iOS photos. Dropbox calls this “Camera Roll” even though it does not match the iOS Camera Roll. Worse, Dropbox does not offer a way to select photos for upload using a view that’s in iOS Camera Roll order. You have to remember the date you took a photo or do a whole lot of scrolling if you have more than just a handful of photos (scrolling because of the screen space wasted by an iOS Moments view). This is a not user-friendly approach. This is not the only usability issue I have with Dropbox and I use Dropbox less than I would like because of these. However, it still remains somewhat useful to me so I gave it three stars for the somewhat usefulness.
Great way to access cloud files
by Jedidude on 2018/08/07 02:07
Having this Dropbox App is a great way to have accessto your (Dropbox) cloud documents; specially since it integrates with the built in Files app. It's also a great way to upload things to your Dropbox account. Starting out with 2GB of free data is pretty silly in this day and age, but that describes the service, not the app. What I do find ridiculous about the app is that a simple feature like "Make available offline" is hidden behind a paywall. Really? I need to pay to maintain files on my device so I don't have to constantly use up your service's bandwidth whenever trying to open such files? Just ridiculous..

No support/Tried to charge for a cancelled subscription
by Xvd68 on 2018/09/22 16:47
BEWARE! I cancelled my trial, the App Store tried to charge me a week before trial was up, then continued trying to charge me,fortunately I had removed my credit card before that because App Store said my valid card wasn’t valid, obvious App Store problem. Way to go Apple! Dropbox sends emails you can’t reply to, and there is no way to contact them thru app or website, I’d rate ZERO stars if I could, how are users supposed to get support? Reading other reviews, apparently there is none, that’s a major FAIL!!! I suppose the app works ok if you have access to high speed internet or work with tiny files, but if you don’t or are limited to a cell connection it’s pointless if working with large video files.
Documents On The Go
by Fan L33 on 2018/05/27 02:07
Always there, online, offline, moving documents from one platform to another, Dropbox is your quick, easy, no fuss solution. It’s one of the cleanest layouts ever created (in my opinion). I would defiantly suggest giving Dropbox a try for anyone going to school or working in business. Other platforms exist such as google docs, or Microsoft office, which I also use, but Dropbox has them beat in speed of upload and download, and loading of page, AND ease of navigation.
Please fix the problem
by D.James.E on 2018/06/04 01:09
I use Dropbox for numerous things online, both business related and personal. In all circumstances I need to be able to interact with people on shared documents and the most recent update has made that impossible for some reason on my iPad. I’m sure I’m not the only one with this problem so it should probably be fixed right away. If not people like me will have to find other programs to use. That aside, before the problem occurred Dropbox was my go to on all of my devices. I sincerely hope this problem gets fixed.
Just signed me up for a subscription
by caylaatx on 2018/09/05 14:02
I downloaded drop box on an old phone almost 2 years ago(when it was free), got a file sent to me, never used it again, got a whole new phone and forgot about it, I just noticed on my credit card bill about 5 months ago I got upgraded without my knowledge and have been paying 10 dollars a month and now Dropbox is like “oh I’m sorry We have nothing to do with that it’s the Apple store” and I’ve been trying to get my money back for a month and there is no way to get a hold of anyone because it’s such a big company they can just take your money and you’re forced to deal with it. Not cool at all. I even cancelled and it still took my money this month, AGAIN.
Frustrated with the most recent update
by DanieF1020 on 2018/08/24 04:56
I’ve really enjoyed Dropbox. It makes accessing my files across multiple devices so easy. After the most recent update I’m no longer able to attach files to emails through the “attachment” option in the mail app on my phone. Not everyone has a Dropbox account and I hate sending links to the files as it seems unprofessional to me. I’ve looked into it and it seems many people have experienced this issue. I hope it is resolved soon.
Could be better
by Marley-blu on 2018/08/26 13:45
Of the few paid cloud services that I suscribe to, Dropbox would be the first one that I would close. Fewer returns for the buck. The cloud service is clunky and counterintuitive, inc. it’s search engine. Uploading and managing files, as compared to other services is a chore. They haven’t upgraded the available storage space in years (1 Tb). It continues to be great, for what most of us signed-up for, to begin with— sharing docs with others, and for syncing frequently used files/folders in our hard-drives. But this is now also possible w other cloud providers.
What is the point if you cannot download the files? Updated
by user 272475728 on 2018/09/05 19:08
I have been trying to download a file from a paid account to my unpaid account. I am unable to download any files from my Dropbox account to the local storage on my device. This gets one star until Dropbox realizes its existential purpose if transferring files from one computer to another computer and not one account to another account. Review of paid trial version. Now I am not able to select more then one file. I have the option of downloading a file but that’s not that helpful to me if I need to download gigs of content for work. Additionally it limits the file size you are able to download to something between 50 and 100 megabytes. That what.. a minute of 1080 video? Why do I not have the option of downloading an entire folder of content. I am willing to pay for the Dropbox experience I had in 2012. I am frustrated when the basic law of modern economics that things get better and cheaper over time is rolled backwards by greedy present hedonistic executives.
Dropbox is just awesome!
by mayerou on 2018/05/27 19:29
Dropbox keeps me well organized with all types of data by allowing me to sort them out into files & folders. It also allows me to share with others selected data, files, folders or all of it and even to allow others to make changes to selected or all data. Furthermore it allows one to share large files & folders. Dropbox is just AWESOME! I can’t wait for the next improvements to come by!
Multiple file exports possible?
by Aaron1989 on 2018/07/15 14:59
I have been using Dropbox for years and love that it is accessible through an app for IOS. I am having a major problem, however, which may be a deal breaker. I am unable to find a way to export multiple files to a device at once. Currently, I have to save each file separately, and when dealing with hundreds, or thousands of files, this is just not practical by any means. I will gladly change my review if this fault is truly user error, but I have found many others with the same complaint.

Big problem with sharing files
by Farahzadi on 2018/08/18 23:55
Everything with Dropbox is cool but whenever I want to share a photo from gallery or a pdf there’s a big problem that I can’t just use “share via” cuz when I select Dropbox I have to assign an email address to share the link with. It can’t just upload something directly to Dropbox without sharing. And another problem is that I can’t share a file directly from Dropbox; I just have to send the link
Acting up
by 131mon on 2018/07/04 19:21
Usually this app works seamlessly but lately has been giving me issues with saving files. When I try to save (or export) an image to my phone, it starts the process but then the “exporting” pop up doesn’t go away and I can’t continue to browse photos because the pop up blocks it. I can only continue using the app after I close out completely then I have to go scroll back to where I was. It’s a bit of an inconvenience to have to close down the app after every photo I view/save.
Absolutely amazing, I’m just nitpicking
by Dissiponted on 2018/08/09 17:11
Now this app itself is amazing. I have been able to use it to listen to music offline, and not have to pay for any subscription service. This honestly earns it 4.5 stars in my opinion, but sadly I can’t rate it as that. The only thing I can think of that I have a problem with is that when you are listening to audio clips, there is no button available to loop the sound. Otherwise, absolutely amazing!
Avid user
by Saywhy on 2018/06/10 15:52
I have been using for years now without worry of being someplace in some meeting without necessary information. Does not matter which of the 3 computers am or am not using information is available by signing in, whether using Windows or IOS. Love having documents available offline; planning for meeting in places without internet access.
New Features
by wvvyX on 2018/06/14 20:56
You guys need to add better features for audio files. I want to be able to have a section for my downloaded audio files and be able to play the song on repeat for that one song and be able to skip to the next song as well. It’s very limited and annoying that I have to swipe up every time and press play once the track has finished so it can replay again.
Caution! Don’t trust the memory Drop Box offers you - Get close and locked up!
by Buck Phillips on 2018/07/28 03:14
I don’t appreciate this on bit - with memory still left you can NOT add unless you buy more storage space. This is deceitful in my opinion. Suggest going to Google drive or somewhere else before spending your money with these characters. If you think I’m kidding, here’s part of the actual response they send before asking you to Annie up more $$$: This is a friendly reminder that your Dropbox is almost full! Sadly, it won't save any new changes until it's back in shape.
Unuser friendly garbage.
by Natural Action Center on 2018/07/13 23:11
The features are hidden so you have to click all over to try and find what you’re looking for. Once you upload files and create a folder to put the files in, it doesn’t let you add files to folders. You have to start the whole process all over. It restricts you to only sharing once a day, but they have the system rigged to tell you that you exceded the once a day limit when you haven’t shared anything at all today. If, I’m able to share this file today, I’ll never deal with this junk again. I’ll keep using the wetransfer website.
Current version super buggy
by Roy Willyfish on 2018/07/12 10:01
NEED A MEDIA PLAYER!!! Keeps playing whatever song I was playing last at random times, even after killing the app. Has also been doing a lot of freezing and restarting. Maybe if you had a media player.... Otherwise app is an absolute life saver. Being able to coordinate large files with others and send links in a snap is fundamental to my professional existence.
Horrible
by LindaF520 on 2018/05/18 17:15
I've used Dropbox for years and loved it but for some reason they've changed something majorly and it's horrible. I've texted and emailed and gotten no answer....i used to be able to see my files when i was on the road from any of my devices, they used to sync nicely Now nothing syncs, plus a feature i loved veggie was being able to edit or add something to a file, no more :( If anyone has a clue on getting these two features to work again, I'd love to hear it. I'm a realtor and need to see and work on my files enroute without having to drag my pc everywhere
Single best sync tool available
by IpsissimusMarr on 2018/05/29 23:28
After testing every major sync provider, even rolling my own, Dropbox wins hands down. Other providers have issues consolidating multiple users’ edits, and multiple offline edits. Never had a single issue with Dropbox! Have been using it for years and cannot live without it.
Issue with paid account saying it’s full when it’s not.
by Artist Couple on 2018/08/14 17:03
I am the admin of a Dropbox plus account. We pay for 1,030GB of storage. We are having an issue with the Dropbox for iPad (pro) app saying that Dropbox is full and to contact the administrator, except I am the admin and the app is logged-in with the admin credentials. I have tried signing out and signing back in as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Very frustrated as we use Dropbox on a daily basis for our small business... currently are using 6.7% of our allocated amount which is nowhere near the 1TB we pay for...

by Simdude on 2018/05/16 09:50
I haven’t seen the issues of others but Dropbox is simply a poor value compared to a service like onedrive. Dropbox give 1 TB for 100 a year. For that cost, you can get a family plan of onedrive with five 1 TB accounts plus full MS office and an hour of Skype calls for each of the 5 accounts. Dropbox will have to drop its price in half to remain competitive with these other services or it will not be around in 10 years.

Love Dropbox, But Less and Less w/ Time
by Hernando Conwi on 2018/05/26 12:57
The old Dropbox was magnificent in its simplicity but like all programs, gets bloated and messy as its management overthinks it and adds features and complexity. Particularly irksome is this relatively new feature of cluttering up the screen with all your recently added files before you can get to your main folder. Why, Dropbox, why? Just let me get to my folders, please, without having to scroll down. :-(
My go too solution!
by Phelo47 on 2018/06/10 16:28
Love the access to my data. I dj so having access to my music and sharing my mixes is essential in growing my brand. Dropbox provides the ability for me too do so. Only option I would like is the ability to play more than one file at a time....essentially build playlist.
ZERO IF I COULD
by L_Ci on 2018/09/04 05:16
I’ve been with Dropbox for over five years, using the same account (email and password), and out of the blue I am no longer able to log in. I use this service for work, so it is an active account. My correspondence with their “support team” is unfruitful, as she keeps giving me the same instructions over and over again on how to reset my password when she knows full well that my account is no longer accessible. I am not able to work at all without my files, and I am beyond upset with this “company.” The bigger question that disturbs me to consider, is where in the hell all of my personal and business information is, since I can’t access it?!? DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE, NOBODY ELSE SHOULD HAVE THIS HAPPEN TO THEM. You’re better off backing your files up the good ole fashioned way, but please use 2-3 solid (non cloud) sources when you do. 0/5 Stars
Good but needs some things
by pdRydia on 2018/08/10 16:41
I use dropbox entirely on my phone and would like to see a few features added: - The ability to download an entire folder’s contents, without doing it file by file - When renaming a file, show the old filename above the textbox where I’m entering the new name - Let me rename a file even if the only thing I changed is the capitalization
What the heck?
by Liz S 88 on 2018/08/30 19:03
So I’ve been trying to look at my files on my phone and iPad and none of them are updating. It says I updated this file today but when I click on it, it shows me a month old version of it. I keep clicking on ‘files’ and it won’t stop automatically taking me to a random folder. This is an unusable nightmare. Do I need to be pro or something to see the most recent version of my files and for the app to work??? Oh geez the website isn’t even syncing my files..I’m just going to use google drive. Geez.
Disappointed after all these years
by AM92660 on 2018/08/08 22:43
I recently tried to cancel my Dropbox account and download my photos. I am an elderly grandma and can’t afford the $9.99 a month. The problem is nobody responds to me and I keep getting the message to “upgrade” for more than $120. Since I am not a business person, why can’t I have my photos and leave? I have paid for several months extra hoping I could send the photos to myself but it doesn’t work. It is either pay the money or they keep your photos. Is that extortion?
Dropbox
by TRIII NY on 2018/05/27 22:11
There are a lot of cloud-based storage systems on the market. Every application want to force there’s a Ponyo. But the one that works best across the platforms are use his dropbox. It’s the most easily organized, accessible, and shareable. And it works for all of my multiple lives in helping them work seamlessly but separately.
Zero support or instructions on how to get started
by RockNRowBoat on 2018/09/19 19:05
I took the 30 day free trial with DropBox plus i think it’s called where id get 1 tb if storage but I cant find how to get started. The app isn’t even showing up on my screen but when i go to the app store it says i have it. I’m canceling be because i cant even find it. Too bad, i wanted to move away from Google Photos where everything stays locked up so bad that none of my photos or vids can be viewed or downloaded. Is there a company like this that actually works somewhere?
Why does background back up need my location and why doesn’t it save live photos as live
by MMdMarkham on 2018/08/02 11:08
This app would be perfect if the background sync didn’t inexplicably need to track my location to work (which I refuse to allow on principle) and if it could automatically save live photos with their corresponding video files.
Disappointed
by Jan Ellen on 2018/07/20 23:51
I have had this app for a couple of years and for someone of my little knowledge of Computers and applications that you use with them this seemed to do what I needed. But now something has changed because I am getting this warning that dropbox application will no longer be of any use but I have downloaded every update and now my files will not open up and I donot know how to contact Dropbox developer to see what to do. I use all Apple products, cellphone,Ipad mini 4 and Apple Macontosh laptop computer.
Camera Upload Bug in iPhone 6
by Edot1588 on 2018/08/21 04:10
This is a great app except for one bug I’ve noticed when using automatic camera uploads on my iPhone 6: photos taken with a filter setting get uploaded as an unfiltered standard image, so pics with a filter get lost if you’re not paying attention and you delete pics on your phone to save space after uploading. Very annoying but to an otherwise excellent service. Once fixed I will rate back to 5 stars
Can’t integrate to the files app
by Ryneezy481 on 2018/07/30 17:57
The app doesn’t have the option to save to files app on ios. So I cannot upload files from dropbox to the internet when safari uses the files app to upload. Other than that it has really good functionality for viewing and editing files.

Children Doing The Quality Control
by Joliver332 on 2018/10/22 18:07
Most of my files are missing... no indication of them being updated or syncing or a data wheel turning... just says folder is empty.... been waiting four hours now no files... is quality control just an out dated concept? Where are my files? Update: now photo uploads stall after 2 photos. Rebooting the phone gives the ability to load 2 more before stalling again
Awesome app! At least it used to be.
by ATX media guy on 2018/10/22 17:16
APP DEVELOPERS! WHEN YOU GET YOUR APP WORKING WELL, STOP MESSING WITH IT! I use Dropbox daily on my PC, iPhone and iPad. It is incredibly useful. I put manuals, school homework (which gets shared with my grandson’s mom), pictures and so much more! I’ve gotten in the habit of downloading every owner’s manual for every tool, device, camera I have. I often refer to it on my iPad. There’s the recent problem. Dropbox has become unreliable on my Apple devices. I get the “loading” circle for 10 or 15 minutes before anything shows up! Sometimes contents never appear. Dropbox used to be instantaneous. Oh, and I have a 220 mbps download speed, so that’s not the issue. If they fix this I’ll enthusiastically give it 5 stars. But right now it’s almost useless.
Automatic camera uploads taken away
by upper case JD on 2018/10/22 16:21
Taking away a feature from legacy users is really disappointing, especially something as useful as auto uploads.
New update makes us pay
by Mexican 23 20 on 2018/10/22 00:53
The new update makes people with the basic to pay if they want to save offline files , that’s absurd
Garbage
by User20181 on 2018/10/21 20:47
Garbage app full of error. Videos not loading properly, confusing to navigate, slow, constant notifications asking you to upgrade your plan. Been trying to skip through my files on this websites. It jumps from files #202 to #2 even though I’m trying to see #203, #204 and so on. I can’t even download stuff because it says “error downloading your file”
change the logo/icon it’s really ugly
by meantomatoes on 2018/10/20 10:03
maybe to a white background and then a blue box
I hate the app and website
by @Sigil on 2018/10/20 08:30
They are really pushing this app for business users. The UI and "features" are for business and collaboration users. Why can't I sort the files by kind with folders at the top? If I am moving a file, will I be moving it into an other file or a folder? I can't export anything out of the app. I think it is time for me to move on.
Sadly - since iOS 12 can’t view files
by Neotk9711 on 2018/10/20 06:15
I deleted and reinstalled app but to no avail. Viewing files just spins and file never renders. Same file I can open on mobile safari but not in the App. Contacted their support and got a lame response to delete and reinstall app - did that but didn’t help. I have been a paid subscriber for years and it is surprising to see such a basic bug.
New update now I can’t attach files from Dropbox to email
by dbepstein on 2018/10/17 23:07
I tested this with google drive iCloud Drive everything works as before. Dropbox when I select the file it doesn’t attach it gives me the option to change it name
Saving Offline
by Byhiu on 2018/10/17 20:34
I’m wanting to make a certain folder in my Dropbox available offline. But I need to make sure before I do so. That the contents of this folder that I’m wanting to make offline to view whenever with data or not.. that it won’t be automatically updated into my iPhone camera roll. Or put into a folder in my iOS camera roll. That would be BAD... very very BAD. so that’s my concern. I need to make sure that these sensitive confidential files won’t be seen ANYWHERE else except offline in the Dropbox app. And not in my personal camera roll. Please advise. Respectfully, Dropbox 1TB user. :)
Freezes
by KillerKane0861 on 2018/10/17 19:24
I have loved this app since the beginning. But since the last few updates, it is constantly freezing on iPhone. I have 40 files that refute upload. They need to fix this.
Wow!
by odog1 on 2018/10/17 02:51
Awesome app, love it!
What did you do?
by SnookyP on 2018/10/16 11:00
I used to be able to attach documents to emails when replying to customers requests for info. Now when I select a document to attach it takes me to a window to change the file name! HUH?The app also hangs up when opening a PDF.
Ugh
by Lulukattt on 2018/10/16 02:48
This stupid prove your not a robot verification is extremely annoying being asked constantly.
Hyperlinks
by Blastrx on 2018/10/15 19:10
I have spreadsheets saved in drop box that have hyperlinks. However, while the hyperlinks are blue and underlined as they should be, nothing happens when I tap on them. Can you update the app to open hyperlinks like it should?
Update is a huge #fail
by hnp1995 on 2018/10/14 14:59
The current update for iPad freezes whenever I try to open a pdf in acrobat. Please expedite a fix. Thank you I appreciate the developers’ suggestion to leave a more detailed note in the support area. I did so. The app in iPad continues to freeze and quit. This is a major life lesson: do not rely on cloud services. My workflow and life have utterly been disrupted by this failed update. External hard drives are inexpensive with massive storage capacities and are safe from predation. I plan on transferring all my cloud data to an external hard drive and have a safer, cheaper storage solution.
DropBox is becoming more and more useless as time passes
by Hardcore Trek Tek on 2018/10/14 06:37
DropBox seriously needs to update its free offsite personal storage size and they need to offer more affordable storage size tier-ing. 2.2 GBs of free personal data storage is a joke in this day and age. At least offer a free tier that is the same as Apple's and maybe consider offering double that, 10 GBs, for free! Google Drive offers a free 15 GBs of free personal storage. DropBox needs to offer personal offsite data storage at pricing for 50, 100, 200 and 500 GBs storage tiers. Dropbox devs are greedy. I don't want or need to pay for 1 TB of data storage at $10 per month. I can get by with say 50 to 200 GBs of offsite storage just fine. I had hoped to use this along side iCloud to upload both video and photos for download to my iPad at a later time. I haven't tried any movies or videos, yet, but my experiences with photos is less than desirable. I upload high quality Jpeg images to DropBox only to have DropBox drop the quality and resolution of my original upload to an image resolution that's less than desirable. And, also, many times DropBox refused to load the photo/image at any resolution. The high res file never got downloaded to my iPad. Only a low resolution one. Plus, there is no progress bar to know how long an image is taking to download fromDropBox to my iPad. Everyone is giving this app grat reviews, but so far, I am not seeing this or the benefits. My Photos are between 8 and 15 MBs in data size and have been reduced to fit the iPad's viewable screen size or close. Totally worthless for photos if I can't get what I, originally, uploaded to down load to my iPad. Plus, there customer service and support, so far, has been totally useless. I 've been waiting for days for an answer or resolution to this problem and no responses from theDropBox support team. This app maybe good for documents, but so far for photos and images, it leaves a lot to be be desired.

Troubles
by MafiaAlex on 2018/10/14 00:03
So I’ve used Dropbox for a year or two. Been a great app. Unfortunately the last two weeks maybe less I’ve had issues with media. If I have an MP3 file, I can’t listen to it. Or I’ll have to reset the app multiple times to even play it. The app crashes a lot. As of now it’s barely usable. I hope the Devs see this and look into it. It’s not my device or connection as all of my files are offline compatible. Hopefully they fix it so I can bump it back up to a 5 star. Love Dropbox
Freezes constantly
by Skyscan305 on 2018/10/13 07:03
Clearly no technical support nor integration for older iOS devices. App freezes, can’t upload photos, can’t select photos, can’t do anything. Dropbox used to be the best, now they’re one of the worst.
Not working )))))))): so baaad
by dr.hanan.a on 2018/10/12 23:41
After the new update i cannot upload easily i cannot open the files easily i have to close the app and open it each time cause it freeeeeeze all the time with any action i need , my offline files are hard to access hard to upload them through email , the previous update was so flexible !!! Iam so disappointed its my fav storage app
Crashes
by FlyBobbyJones on 2018/10/12 19:52
For some reason, after the update, my Dropbox app keeps crashing every time I play one of my songs and freeze the screen....
Passcode compatability with Files app
by Stee-rider on 2018/10/12 11:26
I’ve used Dropbox for a long time, and the only real issue I have with it is that if you set up a passcode you can’t use it with Apple’s Files app. Other similar apps work fine with a passcode (eg Resilio Sync), so I know it can be done. This is actually enough that I’m less likely to use Dropbox for everyday file management. Overall it’s a great set-and-forget program, but it does need the passcode issue fixed. [Response to Developer response: It’s not impossible and it’s not out of your hands. The makers of Resilio Sync must know something you don’t know, because they actually do what you say can’t be done. Maybe you should drop them a line, because I really would like Dropbox to work properly with Files.]
Current version bugged??
by Wark88 on 2018/10/12 04:06
App works fine.. icon broken....
It won’t let me cancel
by Tom4Jesus on 2018/10/12 00:59
I’m hoping it won’t charge me. I’ve signed up for a free trial and it won’t let me cancel. Really hope it didn’t trick us into paying money because that would be very evil.
WHAT HAPPENED ?!
by SROSSM on 2018/10/11 18:28
My experience with the Dropbox app has been great up until just recently. It takes forever to open up folders to access them. Almost seems as if it freezes. Only after force closing and reopening a number of times am I able to access/view my files. Please fix !
Ugh.
by Lavjames on 2018/10/11 10:57
Was working great until some new app updates came along. Now the app freezes ALL the time. I have to go my desktop to get anything done. I’ve restarted my phone, deleted, reinstall app, nothing so far....
This worked great until the 10-10-18 update
by Warriorvamp on 2018/10/11 09:35
I am a paid subscriber. All my files are stored in Dropbox. Many are stored on device for work. I have to use my iPad for work. The latest update made my iPhone X and iPad 2018 Dropbox apps inoperable. All my files were removed from the device, and i cant open my files. Please fix! I have tried everything, including restarting the devices multiple times. The app locks up if i try to open anything.
WORST APP I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!!

Having problems with latest iOS Dropbox stuff
by Dsperk on 2018/10/10 14:29
When tries to search for a file it says “searching” and then abends. When try to load from folder says “loading” and eventually abends. Talked with Dropbox support but they couldn’t help me. Just upgraded to professional and this is what I get. I’m at a loss as to what to do.
Good app
by jackson2192 on 2018/10/09 20:50
Where it says home that should be more up more so I can see more without having to scroll up. There's so much white space for no reason.
Sharing
by frankster222 on 2018/10/09 15:43
The last update stated when sharing a document it DB will send the file and a link. IT DOES NOT SEND THE FILE. Just a link as usual.
Confusing
by sofia777 on 2018/10/09 13:30

Never works for me
by alycewandering on 2018/10/09 04:32
Every time I try to use this app, it tells me to download it and sends me to the App Store, even though I already have it downloaded on my phone. I’ve only been able to successfully use it a couple times.
such a disappointment (app)
by ml baxley on 2018/10/08 12:28
cannot believe i pay for an app with this poor of design- my “recent” folders include a 2016 file and a 2017 folder- that never disappear. been like that for months. deleted and reloaded.
Not syncing, even on wifi
by Stayingintouch on 2018/10/08 12:12
Not showing file changes from past week, which I can see on other devices. Refreshing doesn't fix the issue. iPhone 10, on WiFi with cellular data enabled for the app Would be 4 stars otherwise, 5 if one could also browse through one’s Dropbox subfolders, like in a normal file manager.
Be Careful with the Free trial
by KCstone03 on 2018/10/08 02:43
Be careful with the free trial, once you put your credit card information they will charge you even if you cancel it early. I did cancel it like 5 days earlier from the trial expiration day and they still charged me.
Trying to cancel subscription but can’t
by So-so is all on 2018/10/06 23:34

by Mpfully1001 on 2018/10/06 16:07

Great app, need to clear cache
by CaptMikey73 on 2018/10/06 02:02
I use Dropbox almost daily, but without a way to clear the cache, it constantly chews up my storage on my iphone. There needs to be a way to clear the cache without uninstalling and reinstalling and signing back in. This needs to be the primary focus of app developers.
Rip off

Glitchy AF
by Robvalhed on 2018/10/04 14:09
For the past week, files won’t open when I’m connected to Wi-Fi and files freeze all the time. No sorting feature in app. App getting worse and worse as time goes on.
Horrible
by nuyghjhv on 2018/10/04 05:21
The app just closes out every time I start it up so it’s unusable.
Heic formatted pictures update
by Vikramtiwari on 2018/10/04 04:48
I have been waiting for Dropbox to fix this issue for quite some time now but this is too stupid for Dropbox to ignore Heic formatted pictures in IPhone. Apple apparently introduced a new format to avoid pictures/videos taking too much space. But Dropbox have been coming up with bunch of useless updates almost every week but for some reason they have been avoiding the compatibility of HEIC formatted pictures... Please do something or you will lose one subscribed customer from next month onwards!!! Sincerely, Frustrated customer!
Something is wrong
by Wilkerson1214 on 2018/10/03 19:43
Every time I try to pull a picture from one of my folders it says file empty but two seconds later it shows pictures. Someone please help because if you don’t get this fixed I have lost all my pictures of my late husband.

Money
by pdawg907 on 2018/10/03 02:04
Was wondering why when I originally downloaded the app I was told I would get a monthly charge of .99 cents a month. Now you are charging me $9.99. I would appreciate a refund and a cancellation of my membership so I don’t get charged again. I was only using it to download a video and was going to void it after I was done. Thank you.
Becoming less useful
by ChurchOrganist on 2018/10/02 11:10
The app increasingly fails to preview some ascii text files, .jpg and PDF documents. As I use the app to show projects to team members, this is becoming a major headache.
Problem signing into drop box
by J39MD on 2018/10/02 06:07
I have been trying to sign in to Dropbox, but you keep telling me that my e-mail is invalid. My addresses are nuimage40@gmail & nuimage40@yahoo. I ave been using both these addresses for over 10 years & are both still active. So why can’t I get into Dropbox. You can reach me at either of those two e-mails or call 1 715-324-6166. Or 920-604-1500 Respectfully: Janet

by kolgreat on 2018/10/01 06:35
I have the most updated version of the app. I just spent hours (yes HOURS) scanning documents for work and the app just crashed while saving. Everything I scanned is gone. I’ll be starting over with Google Drive. This is unacceptable.

I am a senior citizen on a fixed income and although this was easy to navigate-in the long run on a annual basis too expensive! Thanks
Not wasting my money!!!
by bigglo300 on 2018/09/30 15:01
I signed up for the premium subscription by accident and I’ve tried so hard to get rid of it!! I can’t figure it out . It keeps redirecting me to a different page. This should be simple!!!
So awesome, so simple
by MpowerSkills on 2018/09/30 02:37
It’s everything you would hope for. One request: please allow edited pics to be uploaded instead of original pics
Terrible
by RedAMK on 2018/09/30 02:36
Worst app I’ve ever used to back up photos, etc. Firstly, it took over a week to back up 4,000 photos. There’s no excuse for it to have taken that long. Then, there was no way to save all of them to another device unless I went through all 4,000 and selected each one individually and selected to export and save image to phone. Garbage app, will never use again and will always tell everyone to avoid it.
Update causes crash
by Matthew Takes on 2018/09/29 17:35
What’s going on with the new update!? It’s crashing every time I use it. It’s the most frustrating thing because this is such an important tool for me. You’ve been so good Dropbox! Why now? Why ya gotta burn me like this?
Export multiple photos!
by Mahdjsjsndhdnd on 2018/09/28 14:59
Love Dropbox and the app just want to be able to export a whole photo or multiple photos to my iPhone camera roll at once!! Please add this feature.
Agreement to SHARE YOUR STUFF!!!?
by Morning Anime on 2018/09/27 23:48
Don’t download or agree. Read Drop Box agreement if you don’t mind sharing personal stuff to others
Former reviews
by Stymie0608 on 2018/09/27 18:09
Just like to say I’ve never been charged a dime and it is connected to all of my electronics! I thought I was computer illiterate but apparently not as bad as some. Thanks for great service!
Cancellation
by Mary tabler. on 2018/09/27 13:14
I downloaded this app not understanding exactly what it was for I would like to cancel my Dropbox thank you very much
Don't know what I'd do without it
by jvtunes on 2018/09/26 12:59
9/26/18 update - addition OF the ability to export the actual file along with link - MAJOR. Thank you! Haven’t tried it yet but will do the minute the update is finished. 5 minutes later: yep, it works beautifully. I sent a PDF via iMessage & rcvd. the file and the link. I use Dropbox throughout the day (mostly on an iPhone and an iPad). It is such a well designed piece of software - I really only intended to provide feedback to say thanks for giving me a longer list of directory choices when I want to file something. But that gets to the heart of things - they continue improving all the time (& are prompt about checking into problems).
Still forces you to create links when sharing.
by JasonTM1 on 2018/09/25 19:19
Latest update sends the actual file when exporting(thank you!) but still insists on creating a link to the file and putting that URL in the export too. Seems very sloppy to have all of these links created when you simply want to attach a file to an email, for example. Feels like a security weakness for Dropbox. I get that you want to share the Dropbox.com link for brand and lock-in reasons but sometimes this isn’t the best option.
Good luck trying to cancel your free trial
by Davidvibernum on 2018/09/23 23:31
I’m already spending close to three hours trying to cancel my free trial and going around and around and around, they will not get a penny out of me, if I couldn’t find a way to cancel I will cancel my credit card before the end of the day, they count on people giving up trying to cancel and being charged, not from me scums.
1/6
by whycantijustusemyname on 2018/09/22 23:55
I uploaded 6 photos. I couldn't see 5 of them because it says "the file can't be previewed, to view this file open it on your computer." The problem is I want to view these pictures on my phone, not my computer. That is my only goal in using this app. When I tried to delete them it told me there was an error and the files couldn't be deleted. I'm shook by how awful this app is.
No support/Tried to charge for a cancelled subscription
by Xvd68 on 2018/09/22 16:47
BEWARE! I cancelled my trial, the App Store tried to charge me a week before trial was up, then continued trying to charge me,fortunately I had removed my credit card before that because App Store said my valid card wasn’t valid, obvious App Store problem. Way to go Apple! Dropbox sends emails you can’t reply to, and there is no way to contact them thru app or website, I’d rate ZERO stars if I could, how are users supposed to get support? Reading other reviews, apparently there is none, that’s a major FAIL!!! I suppose the app works ok if you have access to high speed internet or work with tiny files, but if you don’t or are limited to a cell connection it’s pointless if working with large video files.
Plus Acct
by ItsDip on 2018/09/20 19:17
I would make sure if you are paying for a plus account you verify it on Dropbox website as well. I’ve been paying for it for months & just happened to take a look into it today to find I have a basic account. I went to my iTunes account & it shows a current subscription with Dropbox. I reached out to Dropbox who weren’t much help & reached out to Apple who referred me back to Dropbox. Ultimately I canceled the subscription & I will look for other means to get my data backed up.
Good but not great!
by ibrake4tanks on 2018/09/20 14:53
Everything about this app is great except for 1 feature which is exporting files. I have to export 1 at a time. There is no way for me to select all the photos I want to save to camera roll at once. If this change in the future I’ll change my review to 5 stars!
Little tweaks
by Her1217 on 2018/09/20 03:22
I wish there was a pause option for downloads. If I’m out of WiFi I have to relay on my data or cancel all the downloads until I’m able to continue doing so. Also, it would be great if the downloads from my camera roll would be in chronological order instead of alphabetical.
Nudey Nathan strikes again
by Flipendo101 on 2018/09/20 02:02
Just broke my phone but that doesn't matter, I backed all the nudes I've collected up to the drop box. New phone, old nudes, good day. 😎
Anti app
by khingz on 2018/09/19 20:18
I don’t use Dropbox regularly and have limited space on my phone. It would be nice to not be forced to download this app to use when I use it once every couple months and then delete it after I get my pix.
Zero support or instructions on how to get started
by RockNRowBoat on 2018/09/19 19:05
I took the 30 day free trial with DropBox plus i think it’s called where id get 1 tb if storage but I cant find how to get started. The app isn’t even showing up on my screen but when i go to the app store it says i have it. I’m canceling be because i cant even find it. Too bad, i wanted to move away from Google Photos where everything stays locked up so bad that none of my photos or vids can be viewed or downloaded. Is there a company like this that actually works somewhere?
A suggestion
by fa_daniel on 2018/09/19 16:21
Hey guys I have seen a bug in chrome, when I want to save a pdf file from chrome to Dropbox, i can't save it in my Dropbox folder unless I email it someone, please make it optional to save or send by email, sending an email is a must to save the file in Dropbox folder.
Stop changing stuff!
by Dudebraj9000 on 2018/09/18 09:03
Why do you guys constantly insist on changing the whole interface of the app? Seriously. Every update things are different, and not in a good way. Also, I can’t scroll down on my synced folders anymore. It makes my files disappear when I try. This started after the recent update. I’m not one of those “let me speak to your manager” kind of people but I just had to let you know how bad my experience has been so far. Please fix it, and leave it that way unless there’s a really important bug to fix. Also gave you 5 stars because I know you’re hard working people over there and I pay for pro. Don’t hate the app, just hate the constant changes to the overall look of the app that honestly seem more like a step backward than forward.
READ!!!!!!
by Just a guy with a thought :) on 2018/09/17 17:40
It’s a great app and lets me save allot of things but it would even be more helpful if you guys could add a feature where we can customize the photos of each file. Just to give it a extra touch. Just saying small details matter!!
scam

What the HEIC!
by rnathkdev1 on 2018/09/17 02:03
I was not aware that saving as HEIC stripped the photo of portrait mode and any other filter/effect that has been applied to it. This led to me losing a ton of great photos! Could have at least warned.
Concerning
by Jd'snana on 2018/09/16 20:27
I downloaded the basic plan thinking it’s free. I do not want this and do not use it! If you charge for the basic plan it should say upfront. I do not see where you charge for the basic plan but see other reviewers say you charge $99.00 after I downloaded it! I have deleted this from my iPhone and iPad and will not use it.
The worst app
by Iamawesome29 on 2018/09/16 19:19

What did you do ?
by AudioGui on 2018/09/15 11:34
I went to bed with 4gb of free space. Tried to upload a 17 min vid I took to my Dropbox app and I wake up to my phone saying storage full and the video hasn’t even uploaded. So what happened because it’s obviously this app!? Please fix asap
Helps Maintain an Organized Life with Safe Reliability
by C.O.G. Forever on 2018/09/15 06:38
Using Dropbox has helped me in keeping everything in a safe and easy to use platform space. My favorite feature is the ability to scan an upload documents just by taking a picture of it. So far, so good! I would recommend others to give it a try so they can appreciate the advanced technological features and a stress free tool that’s easy to learn how to use.
Somebody needs more schooling. The last update is just a bust.

Used to work. Now just glitches out. Bad
Annoying
by Warfstache2020 on 2018/09/14 23:58
It’s kinda cool to have personal files and everything but every time someone sends me a link for Dropbox it’s always telling me to sign in or get the app, even though I have it and haven’t signed out since I got it
It's sooo slooooow...
by thebasher on 2018/09/14 01:05
About a year ago I tried to use Dropbox for photo and video backup from my iPhone so I could clear up some space....It was so slow it was useless. I literally had to upload 1 file at a time or it flat out would not work. Fast forward to today. It's the exact same thing. I've been trying to backup 64 files (videos less than 60 seconds long shot on my iPhone 5) and it's exactly the same thing. To make sure it wasn't my connection I sent a 1.5 gig file to a client via WeTranfer to test and it only took about 20 minutes. On the laptop I have no problems but the iPhone app just doesn't cut it.
Useless
by Actorguytim on 2018/09/13 14:00
This is without a doubt the most useless app I have ever encountered. It has single handedly destroyed and made every picture inaccessible. I’ve deleted it from every device I own.
Scam
by JCZumba on 2018/09/13 13:01
This app used to be free. I didn’t know there’s a monthly charge which I really don’t need. I uploaded this app because it’s the only way I can view the pics my friend forwarded to me. I’m not interested in using this app. How can I cancel the membership I’m being charge when I only used it once just to view the photos forwarded to me. There should be a way for us non-members to be able to view the photos shared to us by a member of this apps... :(
Cancel please
by Blessedviravira on 2018/09/12 20:20
I need to cancel this. I keep getting charged and have no idea what this is for.

Can’t save to photos
by Jamesdrewafhihxdyjbdr on 2018/09/12 01:20
Can’t save a photo from Dropbox to Photos. It doesn’t ask for permission, and there’s no option in preferences to allow Dropbox access to photos.
Don’t upgrade!
by Gracefulpawg on 2018/09/11 22:56
They will take your money with NO WAY to contact them. I had the basic for a while and once I ran out of space I upgraded to the premium. My purchase will not sync to my account and now I’m out my money and still have no access to my account. Then when you try to contact them you find out that there is no way to directly contact them and no categories to match you issue which in turn mean you are screwed. So incredibly ridiculous.
The best app!
by dansdclens on 2018/09/11 22:36
Thanks, Im using Dropbox long time ago, but the scanner is the best feature! Thank you so much! 🖤
Oops!!!

I down loaded this app and realized after that is was the wrong appt. How do I delete and make shur I don’t get charged for this?
Did something change in the past 2 weeks?!
by 35madscientist on 2018/07/27 03:09
I looked up Dropbox and the only reason I installed it (on my iPad) was so I could have a very little bit of space for the brushes I was going to upload to Procreate. Not much space at all. That was an option I could choose and not pay anything for it. I would NEVER have downloaded the app if I was going to be charged at any time. I *don’t* do subscriptions. I knew the amount of space was really small, but so was the amount my brushes needed. I then see $99 on my credit card statement! I knew the amount seemed odd. I see people reviewing it saying $75 is too much...NONE of this was on there before I downloaded it. I looked at everything. I chose to use the free version that had very limited options. It did not say this was a trial and would change. I don’t want this and I would really appreciate it if you would refund that $99. I don’t buy apps or subscriptions like that for a reason! What’s written now is different than when I downloaded the app. Again, I never would have downloaded it. Please, please refund my money!
Too much money for notta lotta “service”
by The Notorious t.i.g on 2018/07/12 00:39
After the recent update, DropBox stopped working properly for camera-roll upload on my iPad. Their solution? Remove the app, forget the network, fully restart the iPad, re-connect to the network, and re-install the app. Seriously? Good thing I have nothing else to do ... oh, wait. Basement flooded. So yeah, I have something else to do that's rather urgent. Good news is that yes, this did in fact resolve the issue, but really, I have other things to do in my life than reset apps with updates that fail. Especially when paying $75/month for the business version. For $75 a month I expect a MUCH better UI, amazing support, in-file search (not just the file titles), and so much more. Instead, we get the un/re-install merry-go-round, an ok UI, low-availability support (US normal business hours only), and an amazingly klugey sync setup. Heaven help you if your Mac has an external drive. What happens when you get a new Mac? It downloads everything from Dropbox again, even though all I did was remove the USB plug from the old machine to the new. Good job, Dropbox. Well done. Now I gotta wait for 4T of data to re-synch. Their super awesome support response? Well, we told you external drives might not work as expected. I’m totally looking for another service. Seriously, $900 a year for this? I feel like an idiot for locking myself into this “service”.
It’s useful BUT...
by Rhobson on 2018/07/12 12:43
My main complaint is the “recents” tab. I *REALLY* hate that there’s no way to disable or at least clear it. I use my Dropbox for a variety of files, from scanned docs to my pets photos, and sometimes opening the app to see a bunch of scanned bills when I just want to show my cat to an acquaintance can be frustrating, to say the least. BTW, the iCloud disaster should’ve reached everyone to not store nud3s in the “cloud”... 😂😂 With that said, Dropbox is useful. There’s little to discuss in this matter. BUT - and there’s always a BUT - use it with an extra layer of conscience. The “cloud” is just another person’s computer, after all. Don’t store your most private information there, especially in clear text or without any kind of cryptography. Think in-depth security, even though DropBox “promises” not to peek at your stored information, nothing really guarantees that someone will be able to access your info there.
Okay...
by SwordInTheLight on 2018/06/05 19:39
Hello, I just wanted to say that Dropbox is actually a really great place to store Office files, sorry if I was harsh earlier. I wouldn’t trust it with all of your files, because I’ve had a lot of issues with the iWork things and all that. The app itself works fine this way. Just wanted to say that. Suggestions: -Maybe we can do a one-time payment for a little extra storage? Like pay $1 for 2 extra gigs. I would definitely pay a few dollars for that. -Support for Apple files. As I’m writing this, there’s no way to edit Pages/Numbers/Keynote files from Dropbox. I use Pages a lot and so do a lot of other people, so you need to add support for those. -Once, I opened the Dropbox app and found that it wouldn’t let me create any Office files. (Like when I clicked “new file,” the option for creating Office files wasn’t there.) I signed out of Dropbox and tried to sign back in, but it said “there was an error” when I tried to sign in even though I got the sign-in info correct! This wasn’t a huge deal since I was able to log back in a half hour later with the create files feature back, but you might want to make sure it doesn’t happen again. -PowerPoint files take FOREVER to load up! (At least for me they do.) Please make it quicker. Thank you for reading!!!

Five stars for completely disappointing me!!
by keilaa.17 on 2018/07/24 10:01
I’ve had this app for a while now. They promise to keep all your pictures safe “NO MATTER WHAT” which is all a lie! Let’s say u lose access to the account for a bit so you are inactive with it. Well without them even asking for your permission, they decide to erase your account and all the pictures you saved with it!! I completely believed them like an idiot and deleted my pictures and gave it to them so they can “KEEP IT SAFE” and without even consulting me or thinking about the fact that I have important pictures and things I actually wanted them to keep safe, they just erase and pretend like nothing ever happened. I completely do not recommend this app!! PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT!!! GET EVERALBUM OR EVEN GOOGLE PICTURES BUT DO NOT USE THIS!!!
Passcode compatability with Files app
by Stee-rider on 2018/10/12 11:26
I’ve used Dropbox for a long time, and the only real issue I have with it is that if you set up a passcode you can’t use it with Apple’s Files app. Other similar apps work fine with a passcode (eg Resilio Sync), so I know it can be done. This is actually enough that I’m less likely to use Dropbox for everyday file management. Overall it’s a great set-and-forget program, but it does need the passcode issue fixed. [Response to Developer response: It’s not impossible and it’s not out of your hands. The makers of Resilio Sync must know something you don’t know, because they actually do what you say can’t be done. Maybe you should drop them a line, because I really would like Dropbox to work properly with Files.]
Connect A computer
by Hotshtuf on 2018/08/06 20:35
Oh my gosh! I was having a difficult time logging in on my desktop - trying to remember my password and it wouldn’t let me in. I figured I’ll just continue to use the app on my phone, until I saw the “Connect A Computer” button. I pressed it and in a matter of seconds (I’d say less than 45secs) I was able to get into my account on my desktop computer. It was just three easy steps! I’ve been using Dropbox for almost 8 years and thought it was good but nothing outstanding enough to write a review until now. I just hate the little badge icon that appears on a document when saved in Dropbox. I hide it but it comes back... All good tho!
Review
by big-prof on 2018/07/15 01:53
The AI has deteriorated to the point that the uses has to guess the German gender of a word If you guess wrong no recourse the a few frames later same clue and same answers but previous answers wrong because they wanted the other gender. To me the crowns XP and gems do nothing and are useless. I will not use gems to buy health as this bypasses the learning in practice. The old habit of using practice to introduce new words or concepts continues. I tried using groups only to discover spent time getting right answer to get more XP‘s again bypassing learning. So dropped that. The apps AI used to allow for spelling errors but that feature has been lost. The practice section is useful but this section has a huge amount of repetition, which is a time waste to get a health. I have compared answers given in app with other translators and don’t get the apps results. I have used other translators results in app sometimes getting a correct sometimes getting a false. Therefore, not sure how much to trust the app and/or the other translator. Still sorting this issue out to determine trustworthiness of app or should it be dropped. For reference I only use the app with aids, not sure spending money for aid free buys me anything.
The one app I can’t live without
by Kaiaim on 2018/07/14 20:29
What can I say about an app that gives me access to everything I have from my cell phone- simple intuitive fail-free. The biggest tech mistake of my life was switching briefly to another service which lost my data and treated my like dirt when I asked for help. There are few things I’d like Dropbox to change but they aren’t specific to the app. The only app bug I’d like to see changed is the folder size limit which does not apply to desktop versions. it has been an inconvenience to break up one of my large folders, but still worth it to have my whole life with me anytime anywhere.
Saving Offline
by Byhiu on 2018/10/17 20:34
I’m wanting to make a certain folder in my Dropbox available offline. But I need to make sure before I do so. That the contents of this folder that I’m wanting to make offline to view whenever with data or not.. that it won’t be automatically updated into my iPhone camera roll. Or put into a folder in my iOS camera roll. That would be BAD... very very BAD. so that’s my concern. I need to make sure that these sensitive confidential files won’t be seen ANYWHERE else except offline in the Dropbox app. And not in my personal camera roll. Please advise. Respectfully, Dropbox 1TB user. :)
“Camera Roll” is not the same as iOS’s Camera Roll
by SeriouslyDave on 2018/08/31 07:31
Reply to the Developer Response: The Developer’s reply discussed automatic photo upload. However, I was not talking about automatic upload and did not use the term. I have modified my review to clarify. —- Review —- When manually selecting photos for upload from an iOS device, Dropbox is shows an iOS Moments view of iOS photos. Dropbox calls this “Camera Roll” even though it does not match the iOS Camera Roll. Worse, Dropbox does not offer a way to select photos for upload using a view that’s in iOS Camera Roll order. You have to remember the date you took a photo or do a whole lot of scrolling if you have more than just a handful of photos (scrolling because of the screen space wasted by an iOS Moments view). This is a not user-friendly approach. This is not the only usability issue I have with Dropbox and I use Dropbox less than I would like because of these. However, it still remains somewhat useful to me so I gave it three stars for the somewhat usefulness.
Great way to access cloud files
by Jedidude on 2018/08/07 02:07
Having this Dropbox App is a great way to have accessto your (Dropbox) cloud documents; specially since it integrates with the built in Files app. It's also a great way to upload things to your Dropbox account. Starting out with 2GB of free data is pretty silly in this day and age, but that describes the service, not the app. What I do find ridiculous about the app is that a simple feature like "Make available offline" is hidden behind a paywall. Really? I need to pay to maintain files on my device so I don't have to constantly use up your service's bandwidth whenever trying to open such files? Just ridiculous..

Documents On The Go
by Fan L33 on 2018/05/27 02:07
Always there, online, offline, moving documents from one platform to another, Dropbox is your quick, easy, no fuss solution. It’s one of the cleanest layouts ever created (in my opinion). I would defiantly suggest giving Dropbox a try for anyone going to school or working in business. Other platforms exist such as google docs, or Microsoft office, which I also use, but Dropbox has them beat in speed of upload and download, and loading of page, AND ease of navigation.
Please fix the problem
by D.James.E on 2018/06/04 01:09
I use Dropbox for numerous things online, both business related and personal. In all circumstances I need to be able to interact with people on shared documents and the most recent update has made that impossible for some reason on my iPad. I’m sure I’m not the only one with this problem so it should probably be fixed right away. If not people like me will have to find other programs to use. That aside, before the problem occurred Dropbox was my go to on all of my devices. I sincerely hope this problem gets fixed.
Just signed me up for a subscription
by caylaatx on 2018/09/05 14:02
I downloaded drop box on an old phone almost 2 years ago(when it was free), got a file sent to me, never used it again, got a whole new phone and forgot about it, I just noticed on my credit card bill about 5 months ago I got upgraded without my knowledge and have been paying 10 dollars a month and now Dropbox is like “oh I’m sorry We have nothing to do with that it’s the Apple store” and I’ve been trying to get my money back for a month and there is no way to get a hold of anyone because it’s such a big company they can just take your money and you’re forced to deal with it. Not cool at all. I even cancelled and it still took my money this month, AGAIN.
Frustrated with the most recent update
by DanieF1020 on 2018/08/24 04:56
I’ve really enjoyed Dropbox. It makes accessing my files across multiple devices so easy. After the most recent update I’m no longer able to attach files to emails through the “attachment” option in the mail app on my phone. Not everyone has a Dropbox account and I hate sending links to the files as it seems unprofessional to me. I’ve looked into it and it seems many people have experienced this issue. I hope it is resolved soon.

Of the few paid cloud services that I suscribe to, Dropbox would be the first one that I would close. Fewer returns for the buck. The cloud service is clunky and counterintuitive, inc. it’s search engine. Uploading and managing files, as compared to other services is a chore. They haven’t upgraded the available storage space in years (1 Tb). It continues to be great, for what most of us signed-up for, to begin with— sharing docs with others, and for syncing frequently used files/folders in our hard-drives. But this is now also possible w other cloud providers.
What is the point if you cannot download the files? Updated
by user 272475728 on 2018/09/05 19:08
I have been trying to download a file from a paid account to my unpaid account. I am unable to download any files from my Dropbox account to the local storage on my device. This gets one star until Dropbox realizes its existential purpose if transferring files from one computer to another computer and not one account to another account. Review of paid trial version. Now I am not able to select more then one file. I have the option of downloading a file but that’s not that helpful to me if I need to download gigs of content for work. Additionally it limits the file size you are able to download to something between 50 and 100 megabytes. That what.. a minute of 1080 video? Why do I not have the option of downloading an entire folder of content. I am willing to pay for the Dropbox experience I had in 2012. I am frustrated when the basic law of modern economics that things get better and cheaper over time is rolled backwards by greedy present hedonistic executives.
Dropbox is just awesome!
by mayerou on 2018/05/27 19:29
Dropbox keeps me well organized with all types of data by allowing me to sort them out into files & folders. It also allows me to share with others selected data, files, folders or all of it and even to allow others to make changes to selected or all data. Furthermore it allows one to share large files & folders. Dropbox is just AWESOME! I can’t wait for the next improvements to come by!
Multiple file exports possible?
by Aaron1989 on 2018/07/15 14:59
I have been using Dropbox for years and love that it is accessible through an app for IOS. I am having a major problem, however, which may be a deal breaker. I am unable to find a way to export multiple files to a device at once. Currently, I have to save each file separately, and when dealing with hundreds, or thousands of files, this is just not practical by any means. I will gladly change my review if this fault is truly user error, but I have found many others with the same complaint.
Helps Maintain an Organized Life with Safe Reliability
by C.O.G. Forever on 2018/09/15 06:38
Using Dropbox has helped me in keeping everything in a safe and easy to use platform space. My favorite feature is the ability to scan an upload documents just by taking a picture of it. So far, so good! I would recommend others to give it a try so they can appreciate the advanced technological features and a stress free tool that’s easy to learn how to use.
Big problem with sharing files
by Farahzadi on 2018/08/18 23:55
Everything with Dropbox is cool but whenever I want to share a photo from gallery or a pdf there’s a big problem that I can’t just use “share via” cuz when I select Dropbox I have to assign an email address to share the link with. It can’t just upload something directly to Dropbox without sharing. And another problem is that I can’t share a file directly from Dropbox; I just have to send the link
Acting up
by 131mon on 2018/07/04 19:21
Usually this app works seamlessly but lately has been giving me issues with saving files. When I try to save (or export) an image to my phone, it starts the process but then the “exporting” pop up doesn’t go away and I can’t continue to browse photos because the pop up blocks it. I can only continue using the app after I close out completely then I have to go scroll back to where I was. It’s a bit of an inconvenience to have to close down the app after every photo I view/save.
Absolutely amazing, I’m just nitpicking
by Dissiponted on 2018/08/09 17:11
Now this app itself is amazing. I have been able to use it to listen to music offline, and not have to pay for any subscription service. This honestly earns it 4.5 stars in my opinion, but sadly I can’t rate it as that. The only thing I can think of that I have a problem with is that when you are listening to audio clips, there is no button available to loop the sound. Otherwise, absolutely amazing!

by Saywhy on 2018/06/10 15:52
I have been using for years now without worry of being someplace in some meeting without necessary information. Does not matter which of the 3 computers am or am not using information is available by signing in, whether using Windows or IOS. Love having documents available offline; planning for meeting in places without internet access.
New Features
by wvvyX on 2018/06/14 20:56
You guys need to add better features for audio files. I want to be able to have a section for my downloaded audio files and be able to play the song on repeat for that one song and be able to skip to the next song as well. It’s very limited and annoying that I have to swipe up every time and press play once the track has finished so it can replay again.
Caution! Don’t trust the memory Drop Box offers you - Get close and locked up!
by Buck Phillips on 2018/07/28 03:14
I don’t appreciate this on bit - with memory still left you can NOT add unless you buy more storage space. This is deceitful in my opinion. Suggest going to Google drive or somewhere else before spending your money with these characters. If you think I’m kidding, here’s part of the actual response they send before asking you to Annie up more $$$: This is a friendly reminder that your Dropbox is almost full! Sadly, it won't save any new changes until it's back in shape.
Unuser friendly garbage.
by Natural Action Center on 2018/07/13 23:11
The features are hidden so you have to click all over to try and find what you’re looking for. Once you upload files and create a folder to put the files in, it doesn’t let you add files to folders. You have to start the whole process all over. It restricts you to only sharing once a day, but they have the system rigged to tell you that you exceded the once a day limit when you haven’t shared anything at all today. If, I’m able to share this file today, I’ll never deal with this junk again. I’ll keep using the wetransfer website.
Current version super buggy
by Roy Willyfish on 2018/07/12 10:01
NEED A MEDIA PLAYER!!! Keeps playing whatever song I was playing last at random times, even after killing the app. Has also been doing a lot of freezing and restarting. Maybe if you had a media player.... Otherwise app is an absolute life saver. Being able to coordinate large files with others and send links in a snap is fundamental to my professional existence.
Horrible
by LindaF520 on 2018/05/18 17:15
I've used Dropbox for years and loved it but for some reason they've changed something majorly and it's horrible. I've texted and emailed and gotten no answer....i used to be able to see my files when i was on the road from any of my devices, they used to sync nicely Now nothing syncs, plus a feature i loved veggie was being able to edit or add something to a file, no more :( If anyone has a clue on getting these two features to work again, I'd love to hear it. I'm a realtor and need to see and work on my files enroute without having to drag my pc everywhere
Single best sync tool available
by IpsissimusMarr on 2018/05/29 23:28
After testing every major sync provider, even rolling my own, Dropbox wins hands down. Other providers have issues consolidating multiple users’ edits, and multiple offline edits. Never had a single issue with Dropbox! Have been using it for years and cannot live without it.
Issue with paid account saying it’s full when it’s not.
by Artist Couple on 2018/08/14 17:03
I am the admin of a Dropbox plus account. We pay for 1,030GB of storage. We are having an issue with the Dropbox for iPad (pro) app saying that Dropbox is full and to contact the administrator, except I am the admin and the app is logged-in with the admin credentials. I have tried signing out and signing back in as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Very frustrated as we use Dropbox on a daily basis for our small business... currently are using 6.7% of our allocated amount which is nowhere near the 1TB we pay for...
A fraction of OneDrive functionality
by Simdude on 2018/05/16 09:50
I haven’t seen the issues of others but Dropbox is simply a poor value compared to a service like onedrive. Dropbox give 1 TB for 100 a year. For that cost, you can get a family plan of onedrive with five 1 TB accounts plus full MS office and an hour of Skype calls for each of the 5 accounts. Dropbox will have to drop its price in half to remain competitive with these other services or it will not be around in 10 years.

Love Dropbox, But Less and Less w/ Time
by Hernando Conwi on 2018/05/26 12:57
The old Dropbox was magnificent in its simplicity but like all programs, gets bloated and messy as its management overthinks it and adds features and complexity. Particularly irksome is this relatively new feature of cluttering up the screen with all your recently added files before you can get to your main folder. Why, Dropbox, why? Just let me get to my folders, please, without having to scroll down. :-(
My go too solution!
by Phelo47 on 2018/06/10 16:28
Love the access to my data. I dj so having access to my music and sharing my mixes is essential in growing my brand. Dropbox provides the ability for me too do so. Only option I would like is the ability to play more than one file at a time....essentially build playlist.
ZERO IF I COULD
by L_Ci on 2018/09/04 05:16
I’ve been with Dropbox for over five years, using the same account (email and password), and out of the blue I am no longer able to log in. I use this service for work, so it is an active account. My correspondence with their “support team” is unfruitful, as she keeps giving me the same instructions over and over again on how to reset my password when she knows full well that my account is no longer accessible. I am not able to work at all without my files, and I am beyond upset with this “company.” The bigger question that disturbs me to consider, is where in the hell all of my personal and business information is, since I can’t access it?!? DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE, NOBODY ELSE SHOULD HAVE THIS HAPPEN TO THEM. You’re better off backing your files up the good ole fashioned way, but please use 2-3 solid (non cloud) sources when you do. 0/5 Stars
Good but needs some things
by pdRydia on 2018/08/10 16:41
I use dropbox entirely on my phone and would like to see a few features added: - The ability to download an entire folder’s contents, without doing it file by file - When renaming a file, show the old filename above the textbox where I’m entering the new name - Let me rename a file even if the only thing I changed is the capitalization
What the heck?
by Liz S 88 on 2018/08/30 19:03
So I’ve been trying to look at my files on my phone and iPad and none of them are updating. It says I updated this file today but when I click on it, it shows me a month old version of it. I keep clicking on ‘files’ and it won’t stop automatically taking me to a random folder. This is an unusable nightmare. Do I need to be pro or something to see the most recent version of my files and for the app to work??? Oh geez the website isn’t even syncing my files..I’m just going to use google drive. Geez.
Disappointed after all these years
by AM92660 on 2018/08/08 22:43
I recently tried to cancel my Dropbox account and download my photos. I am an elderly grandma and can’t afford the $9.99 a month. The problem is nobody responds to me and I keep getting the message to “upgrade” for more than $120. Since I am not a business person, why can’t I have my photos and leave? I have paid for several months extra hoping I could send the photos to myself but it doesn’t work. It is either pay the money or they keep your photos. Is that extortion?
Dropbox
by TRIII NY on 2018/05/27 22:11
There are a lot of cloud-based storage systems on the market. Every application want to force there’s a Ponyo. But the one that works best across the platforms are use his dropbox. It’s the most easily organized, accessible, and shareable. And it works for all of my multiple lives in helping them work seamlessly but separately.
Zero support or instructions on how to get started
by RockNRowBoat on 2018/09/19 19:05
I took the 30 day free trial with DropBox plus i think it’s called where id get 1 tb if storage but I cant find how to get started. The app isn’t even showing up on my screen but when i go to the app store it says i have it. I’m canceling be because i cant even find it. Too bad, i wanted to move away from Google Photos where everything stays locked up so bad that none of my photos or vids can be viewed or downloaded. Is there a company like this that actually works somewhere?
Why does background back up need my location and why doesn’t it save live photos as live
by MMdMarkham on 2018/08/02 11:08
This app would be perfect if the background sync didn’t inexplicably need to track my location to work (which I refuse to allow on principle) and if it could automatically save live photos with their corresponding video files.
Disappointed
by Jan Ellen on 2018/07/20 23:51
I have had this app for a couple of years and for someone of my little knowledge of Computers and applications that you use with them this seemed to do what I needed. But now something has changed because I am getting this warning that dropbox application will no longer be of any use but I have downloaded every update and now my files will not open up and I donot know how to contact Dropbox developer to see what to do. I use all Apple products, cellphone,Ipad mini 4 and Apple Macontosh laptop computer.
Camera Upload Bug in iPhone 6
by Edot1588 on 2018/08/21 04:10
This is a great app except for one bug I’ve noticed when using automatic camera uploads on my iPhone 6: photos taken with a filter setting get uploaded as an unfiltered standard image, so pics with a filter get lost if you’re not paying attention and you delete pics on your phone to save space after uploading. Very annoying but to an otherwise excellent service. Once fixed I will rate back to 5 stars
Can’t integrate to the files app
by Ryneezy481 on 2018/07/30 17:57
The app doesn’t have the option to save to files app on ios. So I cannot upload files from dropbox to the internet when safari uses the files app to upload. Other than that it has really good functionality for viewing and editing files.
