Used to be much better 2/5
A while back, the option to create new folders as items are saved from the share sheet was removed. Since then, I’ve had to add the extra step of going into Dropbox after saving, creating folders & then filing what I’ve saved. This annoyance has been a noticeable interruption to my workflow.
I’m also very put off by the lack of notification before my annual auto renewal. At around $100 a year for added storage, one would think a heads up, or even a “thanks for continuing with us” so could add the date to my calendar for the following year would be in order.
The lack of security issues is appreciated, but more communication and leaving existing features in place is also a must for me, so I’ll be looking for something else.
Why is it uploading all kinds of slow?! I’m on day 2 of trying to upload a video 🤦🏻♀️
App malfunction occurrences 1/5
By fed hdhdhd
the app stoppped uploading my files several times and I had to reinstall it
Sam’s File 5/5
Everything is wonderful and the pictures are sharp and clear
Desktop app is crap 1/5
By David 2234
Desktop app is crap
This app works 0% of the time 1/5
I’ve tried uploading videos again and again. I’ve left my iPad open with this app on the screen even. This app is the most useless app in the existence of time.
More subscription alternative 3/5
I wish you would offer more subscription options, $10 a month for your entry customer is too much.
I am sure you would have at least 5X more subscribers if you offered a plan for less than $5/month.
Let’s face it, you could charge $2/month for 2TB and it wouldn’t make any difference on your end.
Lost everything in my dropbox 1/5
I realized i lost so many important files because dropbox deletes your dropbox after one year of inactivity. Are you kidding me? What type of storage is that? I’m leaving and never coming back to this app or site.
Handy way to share and save files 5/5
By Mike from Evanston
Our rock band uses DB for filing sharing including recordings. Easy to use.
Don’t like the change 1/5
By Flaming L
So I’ve been on and off this app for years. I have photos that I kept in there FOR YEARS and now I can’t seen them because you guys suddenly want money. Greed ruins everything and now I’m done with Dropbox for good
Missing files 2/5
By Becoming no fun
Please advise as I put pics of my children and some important docs on Dropbox. I didn’t access it for a little while and Dropbox emailed me that they deleted my account.
I need several of those pics ASAP!
Having trouble transferring files 1/5
Trying to follow directions but they don’t match the screens available. Very frustrated at this point. No tech support.
Update: was finally able to transfer SOME of the files. It would transfer some but not others. Not reliable enough for me.
Best Pokémon In The Series 5/5
By Goku DIES
Most of the Pokémon games nowadays are trash. It’s sad but Pokémon is no longer good. But back in the old days of black and white and platinum where much better.
Was good but... 1/5
I had an account with some important pictures and videos in there. I didn’t use Dropbox for a while because I got a new phone and forgot to re-download it. Dropbox closed my account and deleted all my data. Super disappointed that I’ll never get back what I’ve lost.
FIX YOUR APP 4/5
Fix your app. It’s been crashing for weeks
Lost my items 1/5
Stupid complicated and does stuff without your knowing specially on computer if you delete anything from dropbox page it will reach out to your computer and delete everything. And will make your computer slow. Very slow
Worst app ever 1/5
By Swan duck
I have tried & tried to cancel drop box. The directions never include what I need.
I tried calling only to have them want to give me something & charge me later.
I have tried for over a week now. I don’t remember what method I used to get the app & now they want me to use the same method to cancel. I only opened this because a friend said it was the only way to leave a video message for a 50th anniversary.
If you don’t have to use this app find another way.
Free version is really good 5/5
The free version works great for storing files. It has 2gb of space which is more than enough for what I do (mostly storing PDFs for work and school). It also lets you scan on your phone and then you can easily access the scans on your computer within minutes.
When you go paperless, Dropbox = your office.
Regarding music play 4/5
As a musician who uses dB to bounce ideas around and listen to arrangements I produce
I think music should play from one track to the next when played in a folder.
I like to use Dropbox to share with because
They do not need the app (which I of course enjoy) to listen to Music and I am able to get feedback in the mixing process
Very Nice System 5/5
Serves my needs in a very pleasing manner.
Don’t expect to be able to reliably listen to audio 1/5
This app is garbage. I use Dropbox to store wav files of the music I work on and it is a struggle to get the app to play the audio when I need it. It shouldn’t be this big of a process to playback a 35 mb file.
Needs backward compatibility! 5/5
Needs backward compatibility for older iOS such as iOS 7 or way older iOS! Please
Great App! 5/5
I’m slow but getting better. Instead of choir practice for now, our director is sending new songs (by parts) in email and we move them to Dropbox.
This is a great help as we are transitioning back to in church services. Still live streaming as usual for all who cannot attend. We have a large church but there have been no known COVID-19 illnesses.
Glen Haven Baptist Church
This is the worst experience ever! Just paid $119 + for added space for a year& still coming back as full !
Big files no problems 5/5
By Knit SewFabulous
I love Dropbox it took a very large file and opened it in no time
Issues when listening to a song or documentary 1/5
It’s cuts out and completely stops and closes the app after your almost half way though the thing your listening too I really hope u make adjustments to this app it was a full five stars not anymore
Easily Accessed 5/5
By Robert Mseteka
I would encourage users to save their docs in the their Dropbox. Why, it is easily accessed and edited. Files easily converted to words for editing.
Buggy app 1/5
I only have 2 Apple devices (a computer and an iPad). My Mac has Dropbox but I cannot add it to my iPad to transfer files to, as the app says my plan has reached its maximum number of devices, which is evidently one.
Won’t update on iPad. 1/5
By ridiclous waste of time
This is so frustrating. Refuses to update non my iPad.
Just get Google Drive 1/5
Forces you to upgrade to a bigger Dropbox when your collaborators share more than 2 GB of files with you. So basically all of us end up paying to host the same files. Just get Google a Drive. Cheaper per month and only the person who owns the files has to pay.
BTW, if you make the mistake of doing the business trial, Dropbox will try to hold your files hostage at the end of the trial in order to get you to pay for the subscription, even if all of the files are less than 2 gb and will fit in a free personal dropbox. Difficult to downgrade back to personal Dropbox.
Too much 3/5
Occasional user and finding Dropbox difficult to navigate. Looking interesting but not for $12/ mo
It just works 5/5
By Michael G. Hackett
It works on all platforms and is easy to adjust to my way of working .
Useless And Inconvenient 1/5
By Deveeno Bobeeno
Tried to upload videos, but it didn't do so, no matter what I did.
Tell me, why do I need something for uploading photos, if my iPhone already has a photo storage by default?
I thought that maybe at least this would be able to handle a simple video upload, but it has instead proven to be worthless and pathetic.
Files all Gone! 1/5
All of my stored videos are gone! They were there and then GONE! Don’t trust your files to DropBox!
Best update ever 5/5
Aloha! From The Hawaiian islands, by far the best update EVER!!
Really unhappy with the mobile app’s inability to rewind folders 2/5
I am an artist and oftentimes need the ability to rewind folders to look at older versions of files. The mobile app does not let you do this! Even when you try to do it from your chrome or safari browser on iOS, it’s impossible to because the buttons are out of clickable range on my screen. I don’t want to have to whip out my laptop every time I need to do this. It should work on my phone. Why am I paying $10 a month for this low level of functionality? Very frustrating...
Finding saved file 2/5
Save them but can’t find them
A tool for productivity 5/5
The title says it all.
Always there when I need it.
Cannot cancel subscription easily 1/5
This is absolutely ridiculous. The articles just keep taking you to pages that still don’t explain how to cancel. I cancelled once. Checked my subscriptions in my Apple account. Still showing active. I do not want or need this app.
Battery drain 1/5
Draining my iphone x batterry like anything. The app is not even in background list of apps
Can’t access without paid membership 1/5
By Audio Book Guy
Who thought this was a good idea? What good is a file sharing system when you can’t share files to non-paid members. Whoever thought of this feature should have to stub their toes everyday for the rest of their life.
New to Dropbox! 5/5
(Yeah, I know.)
Just got the app and opened up a trove of archival family photos. Easy to get right in to the app. Awesome.
Pics not allowing zoom anymore 3/5
A few updates back something happened to where when you click on a pic and try to zoom on it it likes to snap back to normal. It does that unprompted and it loves to do that if you try and shift the picture around.
Please repair this glitch. It’s pretty aggravating.
Dropbox customer service is no good! 1/5
Dropbox is not a good product. If I could give it a ‘no star’ I would. Dropbox scams you! I can’t get it canceled.
Still one of my Favorite apps. 5/5
By Kyle Trevor
This is still one of my favorite apps. It enables all of my large size digital files to be organized in one centralized location.Most of the negative reviews I’m seeing appear to be operational error(not understanding how to use Dropbox).
Not my favorite 3/5
Had to download this app to read an advanced copy book. The app would not allow me access to the book, had to read on web site.
