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.
Removing features in "updates"?
security researcher on 7/20/2018
My use case is mostly managing music and pdfs on an iOS device, since as a Linux user apple makes that baseline literally impossible. Dropbox sort of helps with that miserable situation. But AFAICT Dropbox removed the "make available offline" feature in an update. Removing features in updates? That's terrible anti-user behavior. Other problems: doesn't seem to do incremental downloads, so is hopeless on slow or flaky networks. Interrupts downloads when you close the app. Dropbox and apple, surely you can do better.
Very poorly made
AllySunshinee on 7/20/2018
This app was very poorly made, very confusing to use and sends photos 10x smaller and ruins the quality of them.

Recent update 104.2 a bust
Nurse Teacher9801 on 7/19/2018
Update 104.2 has changed the dates on all files to “2 months 1 week ago” What a big whoops!
Useful but not worth $75/mo
tbryanm on 7/18/2018
This is a very useful app but for $75/mo I expect a much better experience that doesn't require a weekly uninstall and reinstall to clear several gigs of cache. Currently looking for an alternative unless they shape things up😡
bsadar on 7/17/2018
This app is horrible why you got to pay to use this app like that make no sense so just saying wow why you gotta pay to use this app!
Brushes x Dropbox does not work
.AM. on 7/16/2018
Dropbox in the popular drawing app Brushes does not work and has not worked for over 6 months. Is Dropbox planning a fix?
Simplemente genial

Dropbox es una excelente manera de almacenar y gestionar archivos, es ideal a nivel personal y profesional!! : D
Multiple file exports possible?
Aaron1989 on 7/15/2018
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-prof on 7/14/2018
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.
Can't disable comments

An update added comments, which take up screen real estate in my devices. I have not found a way to turn it off.
The one app I can’t live without
Kaiaim on 7/14/2018
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.
Unuser friendly garbage.
Natural Action Center on 7/13/2018
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.
ksbdinsklso on 7/13/2018
Me estan cobrando cosas de esta aplicación y yo ni siquiera la utilizo 👿
Dropbox is Awesome!
Zak Pugh on 7/12/2018
I use this app all of the time and it’s exceptionally useful. I have found no bugs so far. It’s just excellent.
It’s useful BUT...
Rhobson on 7/12/2018
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.
Current version super buggy
Roy Willyfish on 7/12/2018
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.
can not set password
nissan motor on 7/11/2018
i can not set password for my dropbox , it’s embarrassment
Too much money for notta lotta “service”
The Notorious t.i.g on 7/11/2018
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”.
Can’t even share/attach a file?
JasonTM1 on 7/10/2018
Maybe I’m missing something but the app only appears to let you share a link to a file and not the file itself. Sometimes you need to send(text, email, handoff) the actual file itself. 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.

Dickson Bearcomesout on 7/8/2018
My Dropbox started to not functioning.. either won’t open or not uploading my photo from camera roll anymore.
Dj Whizlam on 7/7/2018
The current version has bugs and keeps shutting down!
Love the app
Rastayouth83 on 7/6/2018
Dropbox is a great app to store all memories in a safe place. You will enjoy the detail in each memory is saved in addition to allowing maximum space on your phone
FubarSki58 on 7/5/2018
Went from awesome to slow as hell opening photos
CmasterY on 7/5/2018
Your limit on the amount of media being stored for free is not good at all
102.2 Version. Closed Automatically
Mfridzon on 7/5/2018
Update does not work! It will close automatically. Erase the App and reinstall.... does not work!
Very handy
Gorge45 on 7/5/2018
Does a good job of storing files. I do need to understand it better figure out how to sync across multiple devices
Dropbox app
DancenetTV on 7/4/2018
Invaluable communication tool! Very fast for how much it’s loading!
Latest update brakes photos (iPhone X 11.3.1)
Sgxftwx on 7/4/2018
Photos take up to 30 seconds to load when touching one while in grid view. This used to be basically immediate.
Acting up
131mon on 7/4/2018
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.
Last Update a Bust
Skierbarry on 7/4/2018
I used Dropbox all of the time. Sadly each update slows it down. The latest update freezes the program or slows it down enough to be ineffective. I stopped using it. Fortunately I backed up my files on other clouds.
Cannot fix email
KIHCRKB on 7/4/2018
I put my email in wrong. Tried to creat a new account with the correct email and it says it is already used. This is a huge problem.
latest update broke text viewer for files with certain extensions
kwxu on 7/4/2018
latex files with .tex extension can no longer be viewed in the text viewer. now have to view them in web browser. the older behavior is much better. all text files should be viewable in app directly.
iPad no longer allows me to easily attach DropBox files to an email.
Rarirod on 7/3/2018
I have done lots of research on this and have yet to find a solution that easily enables my iPad to attach Dropbox files to an email. So frustrating, what was once a great app is now almost useless. Since when does a tech solution company make it their business to frustrate customers and send them running????? WOW! UNBELIEVABLE!!
IsabellMomma on 7/3/2018
Like it because all my old pics are in it but haveing to verify 20 car\bus\sings images when u sing in is very frustrating
Fast. Efficient. Convenient.
deandreaxox on 7/3/2018
Much faster than syncing from my iMac. My iMac is older so Airdrop isn’t compatible with my iPhone X. Dropbox gets the job done in a pinch :)
Dropbox app not working since last update!!!
TD9988 on 7/2/2018
So frustrating. Since the newest update it is NOT working on my phone at all! Please please fix!! I’ll have to Star this a one but prior to the last update I would say a 5!
New Update Made App Unusable
R1A2E3 on 7/2/2018
Love Dropbox. The app doesn’t let me do anything now though. Just keeps trying to load.
One Drive for Images
@Sigil on 7/2/2018
Great for everything but photos/images.
Hate the nagging links every time you have to share!
Ritwick on 7/2/2018
I am so sick and tired of Dropbox making shareable links every time you need to share something. I have to share chess files in .pgn format. All I want it to share a 20-30 line text file so that it can be imported in another app for review. Instead the app forces and forces and annoys the heck out by offer a stupid link. Why can’t I just copy text. Either make a native way to run .pgn files or make the stuff easier. Very annoyed
Where are my files????
pdcali38 on 7/2/2018
I have old Dropbox files saved in Word & Excel on my iPad. When I go to the Dropbox app to delete the old files they're not there, therefore I can't delete the files; where are they? The old Dropbox files are clogging up my Word & Excel apps. I don't need or want those files anymore and the apps won't allow the files to be deleted from the app. Someone please help me delete the old Dropbox Word & Excel files?
Franek41 on 7/2/2018
