Great! Except for... 5/5
Dropbox is a powerful and reliable service. I never need to worry whether my files will correctly sync. Quietly and persistently, everything works in the background. I happily pay for a pro account.
Latest Version - Fail 1/5
For whatever reason, the latest update has caused an issue where videos cannot be played from the Dropbox without being saved on my device. Tried basic troubleshooting. It's the app.
Great app, feature suggestions 4/5
Hey guys can you please add the option to turn off the audio file autoplay from the last time you were listening to the file? It interferes with the presentation of an audio piece when trying to play for someone, sometimes I click on the file and the song will start playing half way through the timeline, ruining the first impression experience. Also, adding the ability to loop playback of a single audio file would be beyond amazing. Thanks, hope you can implement this soon!!! J
It's ok 4/5
No big complaints.
Great app 5/5
It's a good app love it for the space
Love this app 5/5
Easy and quick to use
By Yellow Birdy
I used to love it. Now it's not the same, all of the new updates ruin everything.
All I want to do is download the whole folder... 3/5
Overall, the app works great, but your interface for making files available offline is terrible. I have a folder of 140 audio files that I want to be able to access offline from my phone without adding them to iTunes, and apparently the only way I can do that is to click each one individually and select "make available online" from the dropdown menu. Why can't I just do that once for the whole folder? Your help page claims I can, but "make available offline" doesn't appear in the dropdown menu I get from the folder. Please fix this!
Voice over issues 1/5
By Lover boy93
Using voice over this app really needs to be fixed on the iPhone. The app crashes as soon as you open it to look at files. Come up with a fix as soon as possible please!
Camera upload is bad 1/5
I have used Dropbox for many years it was perfect, but recently camera upload been really bad it uploads few pictures then stop! Please fix it
Dropbox needs a fix...fast! 2/5
By Steve Raker
Updates over recent weeks have resulted in a klunky, slow Dropbox app that freezes/crashes between every screen every time. It's become a labor to navigate between folders and files...please fix!
Warning: Do NOT update if you use VoiceOver 1/5
This version makes the app unusable if you use VoiceOver. The app will crash immediately if you navigate between files. Very disappointed to see that accessibility testing does not seem to be part of these updates.
So good 5/5
By Sparkles 6454
If you want a app to hold photos that you don't want to delete but are taking up space on your device or if your device ever breaks or something happens to it you still have all your photos, I recommend this app to you. It has been very useful to me. Rating: 5/5 stars
One day my hard drive fried itself. That's when I put everything on Dropbox & never looked back.
Upload Photos UI broken 1/5
"Camera Roll" in this app is "My Photo Stream" or some variation, not my phone or iPad's Camera Roll. I can clearly see photos that were taken with another device and not stored in the current device's Camera Roll. There is no way to see just what is in a single device's Camera Roll. Very frustrating. To make matters worse, Dropbox's "Camera Roll" cannot be viewed in a grid format. So, it takes forever to scroll through the Moments-style format that Dropbox uses.
This problem has existed for so long that I'm now looking for an alternative to Dropbox.
Do not update to this latest version! 1/5
New version is severely broken! Crashes on startup & will no longer connects to other apps. If you pay for this service as I do & would like to preserve functionality, avoid the latest version. It is reprehensible.
Multi-Select Feature 4/5
Love the app. Would like to see a multi-select for deletion, movement, and offline mode for files. Thanks!
Pretty good, although some features would be nice. 4/5
I hope in a future update webm files will be viewable on the app.
Horrible! Just horrible!!! 1/5
I updated it and now I can't see anything I have saved in my Dropbox app on iPhone5s yet my storage space still reflects I have limited memory because I have things saved in Dropbox
Ordenar archivos 4/5
Por favor agregar la opción de ordenar archivos por fecha de modificación a la app.
Voice over accessibility 1/5
By Golden rose405
When i am using the voice over The app crashes after i try to touch any folders, files. from the files tab.
I hope you will take care of this problem and fix it as soon as possible .
Update killed video access... 3/5
Clicking a video now kills the app. Also...please add the ability to access, create, and edit photo albums
It Stops My MacBook & Creates Duplicates & Triplicates 2/5
Why are all of my pictures uploading 2 and 3 times? This has been happening for a while. You guys need to fix this immediately.
And, set up the app so that it has a feature to automatically upload pics & files on my iPhone.
And I had to shut it off on my MacBook. It uses so much processing power to work that it stops all my other programs.
Latest update 1/5
You didn't fix a damned thing! Still no photos. Still hate you.
Wonderful App 4/5
By Cøol Gírl
But There Is One Thing Have 2 Do About Save Picture Option !
"Make It Easy & Clear Steps 2 Save Pic" Hope In Next Update !
Backup, Sync, Share! 3/5
Dropbox didn't implement it but iOS9 and now iOS10 allows us to send Dropbox files as email attachments instead of sharing their links through the default Mail app.
It's also very important to have an option to edit files using Pages, Numbers, and Keynote too. There's no way to copy/paste files from/to iCloud Drive as well.
Although Dropbox itself is one of the best cloud services, this app doesn't get more than 3 stars for now.
The best 5/5
Dropbox has synced my stuff reliably for years. It's great.
Continuous Play 3/5
Why haven't you come up with continuous play with music files. Or at least continuous play for files on device
Cant even believe how slow a cloud server can possibly be!!
My most important app 4/5
I love the reliability and convenience of this app. I'm able to share all of the music I'm working on with the bands, producers and artists from my phone. I love that I can listen to the songs from the app but I really think Dropbox should add a feature that allows you to put together playlists within the app. Other than that 5 stars
They listen! 5/5
By The Rhythmist
I just want to thank the Dropbox team for listening to the users and finally bringing back release notes!
(Instead of either not writing any details or making you go to the website to see what's changed (which was just a stupid and counterproductive idea)). Again, thanks Dropbox team!
Lost my account 1/5
I have had the same account for two years now and when I went to login after updating it says no account with this email I had so many pictures and school work on there and I need it back.
App crashes when moving multiple files 3/5
Every time that I try to move multiple files between folders at one time the app crashes.
Good for temporary storage 4/5
Live Photos backup ASAP, please! 1/5
By Jazz Thompson
People have been asking for it for over a year. I was surprised and disappointed this morning when I realized that Dropbox hasn't been backing them up. This is important. As a Pro user who pays for the Packrat add-on, I have high expectations for app development turnaround time and over a year is too long! I will increase my rating to 5 stars once Live Photos backup feature is rolled out because otherwise this app is great.
Cannot Login 1/5
By New User one two three
Not able to login from app. Multiple attempts. I hit done or login and nothing.
Bring albums to iOS!! 2/5
I freaking love Dropbox with all of my heart and am even a pro member because they are so awesome at what they do.
HOWEVER, with carousel closing down, you guys better get on with adding support for albums to your iOS apps. It's extremely annoying to have to scroll through the bajillion photos I have stored on the Dropbox cloud in order to get to my dog's freaking adorable puppy photos.
So...get on with it, Dropbox! I will be finding it hard to love your service and continue paying for it when you're taking away useful features. While you're at it, add tags to better file organization. That would also be extremely helpful.
Dropbox Great, app not so much 1/5
The iOS app just sits on the login screen and sends me notifications that I've logged in with an iPad. When I access via safari on my device, the shared file isn't visible. [sigh]
Cloud Storage 5/5
By The Paul Ortiz
I just this app, I just saw that you can highlight some words and it can speak to you. Awesome!!!
Simple and easy 5/5
Dropbox is simple and easy to use. Love it.
Simple, fast and very useful! Helps me a lot with my studies!
Can't Understand How They Messed Up So! 2/5
I have been using Dropbox FOR YEARS.
Update to this review:
Reinstalled Dropbox fresh version onto my iPhone after deleting the one I had that wasn't uploading photos. Now, that does work and it automatically uploads photos BUT CONVERTS THEM TO .PNG!!! Uchh. I turned off the automatic photo upload, and tried to see what would happen if I uploaded individual photos...A jpg did get uploaded as a jpg that way. BUT I NOW HAVE 1000s of photos to upload, since the app stopped uploading about 4 mos ago from my iPhone. I am surely not going to upload those one at a time! (If I don't hear from them soon , I am dropping Dropbox.)
HERE'S MY REVIEW FROM EARLIER TODAY. A few years ago, one of their updates are a whole lot of my files. (Never mentioned it before.)
BUT, in the last few months I wonder what I am paying for??
The photo upload didn't work from iPhone, suddenly. Not the background upload either. 1000s of photos wouldn't upload so I had to go to Google and Amazon as backup until could figure it out. Dropbox also did something very weird for awhile prior, in that all graphics uploaded in png. No matter what they were (jpg Adobe ps or ai) That may have been fixed, or rather, it works ok from my iPad.
I just deleted my Dropbox from my phone and am re installing, to see if maybe a fresh install might fix the prob.
(Yes, I emailed them. Their response was to give them SO much information, it made me dizzy. Just what I want, to have some 3rd Party Buddha Desk person in some far away nation ) ...And I certainly don't need MORE TIME-WASTING TO TRY TO FIGURE TECH TICS OUT.
Hoping this re-install works. Will come back to report if it does.
(Dropbox REALLY needs to supply some great and swift, easy help people. Easily accessible. By phone even. For $120 per year per person--just for storage space!!!) (I feel that way about a few other places too--You all can AFFORD TO KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS.)
I use Dropbox to make my life easier, not more complicated.
(Oh yeah, forget about "carousel". That was stupid and an unnecessary item they added, tried it last year. SO much phone space bloat, and no point to it. Doesn't make anything more easy or organized.)
Zero Customer Service Effort 1/5
Annoying. Frustrating. Zero Customer Service. Leaves the door open for someone to swoop in and do better. 🙏🏻🙏🏻
Not an effective productivity tool. 1/5
Very unhappy with the iphone app. No way to selectively remove files from view. No way to sort, which makes finding files laborious. It's a time-burner. Documentation and assistance is poor.
The Almost Perfect App 4/5
By I love FNAF
Dropbox is a really great app to hold your videos and photos and documents. My only problem with it is, it makes the pictures and videos blurry that when I print it out, it looks terrible, almost unrecognizable. Please make the photo and video quality as good as when I upload it to my files.
Useless Product 1/5
By Anthony Monforte
Does nothing that other apps can't already do. When someone sends me their Dropbox links to view something it will not work.
Very slow doesn't load all pics....VERY disappointed! 1/5
I upgraded for more storage, not only am I constantly getting errors but it's extremely slow. I called apple and asked for my money back. It keeps saying no pictures found. Seems like it's not what it use to be. I never should have upgraded. Waiting for. My refund. DO NOT pay for more storage!
Problems uploading photos 1/5
Does not allow me to sync photos to my phone. Was working. Didn't last long.
Great app since its beginning! 5/5
I have been using Dropbox since it was established, and I love the easy way to access my files in all devices. Please, continue doing a great job!
