Love this application and the potential it has to be! Since my initial review, I have now given it a 5 star review! My top two requests (offline support and folders) have been added. Would be amazing to add these: 1. Option to disable the "recently viewed" function, I'd prefer to not move old docs to the top
a nice companion to Dropbox
Zook024 on 7/10/2017
Paper is a nice companion to Dropbox which has replaced Evernote as my note storage app. However, the strong focus on team use in the workplace is rather tiring when I am just using it for personal use. An option for personal use only would be a great add-on in this respect.
Good App with Great Potential
RideFast on 7/7/2017
Loving paper on the web, and as the app develops to allow more of the features that the web has it will be incredible, but certainly functional as it stands now. Allows for easy collaboration for interior design projects.
Love paper...
beckyankerberg on 7/4/2017
...for basic planning and idea-sharing, and especially like that you can comment on specific parts if an image. Makes collaborating on designs super easy!
One of the best, with major flaws
autumn.j on 7/4/2017
Dropbox paper on the desktop rules over all other applications. It's simple and clean, and stores your documents securely. The app lacks a lot of essential features. There needs to be an ability to select multiple documents, and be able to delete, share, print, etc. them all at once. Documents should be able to be organized in order of "Date Created". This is extremely frustrating.
Setting up document still spinning
Chief BowWow on 6/21/2017
It's been 3 hours and 4 separate uninstalls and reinstalls - the "Preparing Your Docs" screen is still spinning. Can't be right! Waste of time
Better than GSuite
cdohertyk on 6/18/2017
Finally, a collaboration product that's not based on the metaphor of an 8.5" by 11" piece of paper.
Does not have enough options
Beardwhip on 6/14/2017
There is no way to delete or move any documents within the app (unless I'm losing my mind). The other Dropbox apps offer the ability to move & delete files as a basic feature- that makes me hope it's supposed to be a feature of this app as well
Not ready. Not good.
Mhennick on 6/12/2017
It is not really a PM app or a CRM or a good ToDo app. I'm Not sure what this thing is supposed to accomplish. Also needs markup and proofing. I guess us users will tell Dropbox how to fix it. Blah.
App freezes in latest update
erickeezer on 6/8/2017
With the latest version, the Paper app freezes after a few minutes. I'm on a iPhone 5s, latest app update, and on the latest iOS 10.3.2. I'm a Dropbox Pro member. Please fix!!! I use this for work and personal so it's great when it works! In the meantime I have to use txt files for notes synced to Dropbox, yuck! So 2010...
Pretty messy
Me333345 on 5/26/2017
I do love Dropbox and probably couldn't live without it (or a similar service) but their mobile apps are lacking in a big way. While the main iOS dropbox app is unfortunately light on options this app is even lighter - and that's not a good thing. Maybe it's time for dropbox to throw a little more money at their mobile apps. As far as issues go - word wrapping in tables is horrendous - almost as bad as Evernote was. Phone numbers will only turn into links for about a split second before turning into un-clickable black text. I've had a few crashes. No ability to set due dates on tasks as far as I can see. When trying to assign a task the entire pop up window moves up and down the screen as you scroll - pretty sure this isn't intended behavior. I've only used the mobile app a few times but in that time I've found all these silly issues. Doesn't anyone test their apps before releasing anymore?
Good but lacks organization and UX
Selv on 5/25/2017
Has a lot of wonderful features but lacks organization. Not a deal breaker. Would still recommend, but the app is very hard to use for organization. I can't seem to find a way to add docs to a folder within a the app. Also, it's difficult to find things since it presents you with most recent instead of just my folders.
Flak-age on 5/20/2017
An abstraction of Google docs perfect for getting things done.
Can't see my Dropbox Files
Scooter-IT Debit on 5/17/2017
I can't see or export a txt file from Dropbox or open the file from this app. Can't find an option to link my DropBox app or account either. Useless app for me.
Powerful and useful
Qiuwch on 5/13/2017
Nice editor and convenient to sync between all devices.
Good and getting better
termiwussie on 5/12/2017
Paper is used heavily at my place of employment, and has been since it was in beta. Having access to my Paper docs on my iPhone is essential. It allows me to create/edit documents, share with colleagues, comment, and get notifications when others comment. Markdown is supported and makes formatting easy. I have noticed a few bugs: when double-tapping to edit, the cursor is often placed at odd spots, and if you have predictive text enabled your sentences appear as one word above the keyboard. Despite these minor issues, I have opted to start using Paper over Evernote. I would love to see multiple accounts supported as in the Dropbox app so I can have my personal Paper account as well, and also the ability to link to files I keep in Dropbox and keep them inline while offering a preview of the file, just like I can on my laptop. It's easy to see Paper is a priority to Dropbox with the frequent updates to the product, as well as to this app. Looking forward to seeing more features and improvements added.
Just great
@jimray on 5/9/2017
I didn't realize how much I needed an app like Paper to exist. It's a perfect lightweight notebook. Can't wait to see how they make it even better (like adding support for multiple Dropbox accounts 😏)
It's made for businesses and teams
FashionGeek1 on 4/30/2017
It's not meant to be an office suite, it's a mark down editor for teams who can update and edit documents in real time, you can also provide the links on websites to share your documents with customers, and also share documents so they can be edited, with the desk top version you can add tables and even more to documents, remember this app is free I'm sure there's a lot of work and dedication put into this app! Five stars all the way and thanks to the developers, I've used this for clients, studying, and sharing informational docs on the web!!!!
It's a start
Shawn Y. on 4/29/2017
Desktop Paper is a winner. The more I use it, the more I value it. Unfortunately, as many have said, this iOS app is half-baked and bug-ridden.
Xkvkcmsnsnfjxjcjdjfjcjdjcnx on 4/24/2017
Hackpad worked perfectly in a mobile browser. Now I'm installing yet another app. Fantastic, thanks.
CyberMew on 4/23/2017
Look like a solo project made by an intern. Not usable at all. I'm not even kidding. Documents can't be opened. Everything is slowing down. Imported and shared files don't appear until after a day. Please delete this app.
Doesn't work at all
Strtiger on 4/22/2017
Only blank white screen. Nothing happens.
App does work now
Ggogz on 4/22/2017
App does work now
Meh :/
Ruanmer on 4/21/2017
I cant delete a file, I cant rename or delete a folder, I cant move a file.
Jbaler on 4/19/2017
Why can't I add folders within the app? Has anyone else had this problem?
Needs folders..
Talicblu on 4/19/2017
I like this app. It's great on desktop. But I like to make notes on the go and not being able to categorize the note in a folder is a bummer. 👎🏻
in short, yes.
Kenny Pistol on 4/19/2017
once again dropbox asserts its dominance over all others. GOAT. this is perfect for a creative team. bravo dropbox, bravo.
Lacking features and buggy
dapjang on 4/18/2017
The web version is nice, but the app has weird issues with touch constantly triggering edit mode and cursor moving around weirdly.
So unstable.
Ivan8691 on 4/17/2017
When I first opened this app and tried to write something, I found out when click the bottom space of a picture I can add a caption. After a while, somehow the caption tool just disappeared. No matter how I tried it never showed again. This is a mysterious app.
Dade Murphy (zerocool) on 4/17/2017
A lot of various bugs, from losing new documents to the edit mode not inserting to edit. I love the idea, but it makes it difficult to use for work when it's not consistently there for you to use at its fully working capacity.
Not Working
RMIam on 4/16/2017
I've downloaded and reinstalled 3 times. When I first open the app after downloading, there's a "Get Started" button. I click the button then choose an account. I'm then taken to another screen that is blank. It appears to be loading but completely blank. I'm not able to go back or go to settings. I can't do anything.
Great way to collaborate!
Bl1nk03 on 4/14/2017
This app makes it easy to create and share docs with your team. Love the clean UI!!!!
blank page no response
rosenbek on 4/14/2017
When I login in with my dropbox account it shows error "Something went wrong Unable to load current paper user". even with the newest version It doesn't work. there is no feedback button to click in the Paper app
100% not working, i see only loading the app 24hrs.
parkseungil on 4/14/2017
simple opinion.. NOT working AT ALL. It crashes even right after executed. I can't go to the "Report" tab.
Good, but...
Celestialn on 4/13/2017
First, let me say that I love the concept of this app, but there are some issues: - Feature parity is not a realty between web and iOS versions. I can't create tables in the app for example, and anything requiring the left menu seems not to be accessible. - Some interactions are weird: bolding text or creating a list using the drop down menu gives no positive feedback, which means you're not sure if it worked until you begin typing. - Something funky is going on with the scroll; when you type and your cursor moves off screen, the editor view doesn't move down to compensate, and you can scroll way past the existing canvas. Still, I suspect it will become a very polished app so long as Dropbox continues to push updates on a regular schedule. I prefer the UI and integrations to Google docs but the polish is not quite there yet.
My go-to for notes and project management
Tdreeves1 on 4/5/2017
I love the simplicity and practicality of this app. It's become my central place for note taking and collaborating with clients. One change I'd like to see in the section that the app (and website) opens to. It doesn't make sense to have the "incoming" section display first if there is nothing there. It should default to files or folders (or give the user the choice). Other than that, the app is a great extension of the website.
Loving it. Needs polish.
WhiteLionheart on 3/28/2017
If they continue to support this project, it will be my goto collaboration tool.
Ruined Dropbox
Jdogmt on 3/18/2017
I have been an avid Dropbox user for years (paid) and after setting this up with my Dropbox account it ruined many of my favorite features (automatic upload of my photos from iPhone). When I asked them about it they said I couldn't go back to the way it was.
Could be so much better with a few small improvements
L0zan0 on 3/16/2017
This has been my favorite project management tool so far, but I need more. 1) an easier/faster way to switch between my personal and business accounts 2) you can create hashtags within docs, but when I try to follow the link I'm taken to an empty page 3) can't manage folders in mobile (It would actually be awesome if the folders in Paper would just be the folders in your Dropbox account, and to further group together Paper docs use hashtags) 4) can't create tables in mobile Please add 😩
Best doc system on earth
RBICODEX on 3/5/2017
Better than google docs. Clean. Elegant. Zen like.
Not working for me
Yo770kl on 3/5/2017
Docs just don't load... On my computer, paper looks great, but this app ain't smooth
afrycl on 3/4/2017
Can't scroll left or right with tables. I can on my iPhone but not on the iPad.
Needs work
Trying3 on 2/28/2017
It is a great idea, but needs work for iPad. You cannot move files to a different folder. It seems that significant menu Items are missing in the iPad app. Support has been helpful, but unable to solve problems.
Need offline editing
Arhaef on 2/28/2017
Can't use on airplane !!
Close but needs reminders
Pixelriffic on 2/27/2017
Love it so far. Except for the lack of reminders. If this feature was added, it would be an easy five stars.
Lots of potential!! But missing a very important feature
Skillnizzle on 2/20/2017
This app seems to have a lot of potential and heading into the right direction for future apps but what about : 1. Option to delete docs ? 2. Apps need to be more feature rich than his desktop option. Pr already equal to it. 3. What about option to share only for viewing mode ? 4. Option for removing sharing and make it private ?
Can't use Dropbox documents
Jeebo on 2/20/2017
Why can't I insert documents from Dropbox? Pointless. Good look though. Simple to use.
Want to store files in Dropbox account & access files in Dropbox
jhmillerster on 2/18/2017
Security is not clear
So sleek
SamGrassi2501 on 2/17/2017
I like how simple it is, and if you work at a startup or do programming for a living and collaborate with other programmers, I have found the code block feature to be great
I love the pc version, but...
Anna R on 2/14/2017
How about being able to access our Dropbox files? The connection issues are a problem as well. I would love to get rid of Evernote and use this app. Keep up the good work! :)
