Like everything but 3/5
By Great low prices!
I have the app for Dropbox and everything is fine except that it doesn’t load the pictures as fast as I would like them too. And I do pay a monthly subscription, I would expect it to work optimally but it doesn’t. This is my only complaint on the app version of Dropbox.
Current version crashing on iPadOS please help. Update 2/21/2020 @12:13pm. Had to delete and reinstall. Working again! Life without Dropbox is very difficult, thank you for everything you do!
Horrible, do not use 1/5
Terrible editing in offline mode. All my edits and comments were deleted when I connected to Internet. DO NOT USE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
I want this to replace OneNote 3/5
I primarily use Dropbox for cloud storage. I really don’t want to use OneDrive or OneNote if Paper can compete. I like the pen integration, but I’d rather see it implemented like OneNote or Notability. If that is possible, this would be my daily driver for lecture notes.
Problems with new update 2/5
Since I updated Dropbox I have been unable to save my songs to Dropbox. These are not copyright songs they are my own compositions. I used to be able to transfer them until the latest update.
Complete trash! 1/5
Thought this would be a nice app to transfer photos from my phone to my computer...I was wrong. The computer interface is absolute trash and not user friendly. Also when I download my photos it puts it into a zip file like it’s 2006 and high speed Internet doesn’t exist! Just get a cloud subscription it’s much better.
Avoid Dropbox!! 1/5
This is seriously one terrible and confusing service and product. Very bad design. Super confusing to use. WeTransfer is SOOO much better. Download this app is you want frustration in your life. Seriously. I do photography and Dropbox is simply a bad product for sharing files.
Issues Syncing to Windows Desktop 1/5
I don’t know how many times I’ve had to reinstall this app to get syncing to work fir camera uploads. The app is not intuitive when this happens. I’m really frustrated with it. Looking for alternatives to make sure I don’t lose my photos from my phone
Crash on iOS 12.4!!!
Don’t OPEN this app
Wooo dark mode (sarcasm) 3/5
By Waffles was taken
Dark mode is ridiculous. Can’t wait until ppl realize how hard light text on dark background is on the eyes...just like how ppl realized it in the 70s with mainframes, in the 80s with dos, in the 90s with dark background websites, in the mid 2000s with dark websites, in the mid 2010s with dark websites/apps, and hopefully in the 2020s with freaking vomit dark mode. Dark mode is horrible UI design.
Feature bloat 2/5
I have a 16gb 6s, and I cringe at the size that this app has grown to. Does it really need to be 208 mb??? How about trimming off some fluff? Dark Mode! Who cares! I suppose we’ll see ‘Mainframe Retro Green Screen’ next!!
All files lost and not given a refund 1/5
Edit: The company’s response is unacceptable to me, neither taking accountability for their lack of communication or defrauding me out of my money. I will never be using or recommending their services to anyone and with these business practices I am sure they will go out of business sooner rather than later!
I found charges on a credit card statement that I thought had been cancelled going back two years with a monthly subscription to Dropbox. Because the account was linked to an old email address that I could not recover, I lost about a thousand photos of my family and travels. When I contacted Dropbox the agent I communicated with refused to speak with me on the phone, could not recover my photos, would not refund me the monthly subscription that I had been paying for this “service” unless I gave them my credit card number over email, AND would not let me speak to anyone else. If I could give zero stars I absolutely would, this is a horrible company. Google Drive is superior in every single way and I have never had a single issue with them!!
Dropbox and excel documents 4/5
By TF phone
Although I love Dropbox it is very annoying that it will not read excel documents correctly. It scrambles the lines etc. After creating a table and putting it in dropbox, when you open to view it, it is scrambled up.
Tony Lopez 5/5
Good overall 4/5
Should have option to put longer than 4 digit app password. At least 6 - or even alphanumeric.
It has never once worked 1/5
By Lord Jub-Jub
At no point in my having the app have I ever actually been able to use it. Files only ever take me to the App Store to download the app, which I’ve already done. I don’t even think I should give this one star since it’s about as useful as an orange peel
Paid user 1/5
I pay for Dropbox, been doing so for a few years, so I expect their app to work well. The company is always so late to include features and overall I am starting to get tired and considering moving to a different cloud service. I do most of my work in an iPad and the app still reloads every time you open it, making it very tedious to go back to the folder you were at. Additionally, there are many small annoyances like poor favourite (starred) implementation, lack of easy offline downloads of folders (where is smart sync for iPad?), etc. This makes the app very cumbersome to use.
By Jama Mamondy
i lovee uuu i love u i loveee uuuu
App constantly crashes, 1600 photos and its taking 5+ hours to upload..
One last thing 4/5
I’m really happy u added a Dark version to it, now I’m not straining my eyes with all the white, I never liked bright things, but to get to the point, there’s one last thing I would love for u to add to the app. I download audio files on Dropbox and I use it to listen to it when ever my WiFi decided to cut out for a few hours (ya it does that I’ve been trying to get it fixed) now it plays the files just fine, but whenever the song ends, it doesn’t go to the next one, so I have to stop whatever I’m doing, go the the app, and either replay the same song or just find a new one to listen too. And I don’t like being stopped in the middle of drawing or doing work. Is there a way u could add a media player or something? Like when u play a music or video file it just goes or opens up the media player? Plz if u can do it I’ll be very great full, I'd definitely have less distractions when I do my work.
Terrible app 1/5
By Annoyed person 345
I am fairly tech savvy but can never seem to use this program properly. Every time I use it I grow more confused with how it’s suppose to operate. Shame on every person that keeps sending me Dropbox links forcing me to use it. DROPBOX SHOULD BE BANNED!
Need Office 365 subscription? 5/5
I have been using free office apps on mobile devices and a 2011 personal/home license on an iMac. Now a message pops up saying I need an Office 365 subscription to edit Excel spreadsheets and Word docs on my iPhone. Is this an error? Or have Microsoft’s or your policies changed?
Thank you 🙏 for your response. I do not have a device with a screen 📺 over 10 in. Just an IPhone and iPad mini. The prompt says sign in with an office 365 account in order to be able to edit, but it turns out you can just sign in w/your regular old Microsoft/Outlook account. This is very sneaky of Microsoft. I was almost about to purchase a subscription!
No long reliable 1/5
I am extremely upset with this app. I painstakingly scanned a whole stack of lectures and uploaded it to Dropbox. Guess what happened? Pages were missing and not in order! What a waste of my time! I will never use this service ever again. I am done. Adios!
I keep trying to get someone to help cancel my trial. No luck. Easy to sign up...very difficult to cancel. Hopefully I can resolve this soon.
By fredC S
At end of my free month ( which I did not access) I could not cancel my subscription!. I accessed help from a local Apple support store and we both assumed that my subscription was cancelled. IT WAS NOT! DOES THE WORD “ SCAM” COMETO MIND?
I couldn’t do what I do on my iPad without this app 5/5
DropBox is part of my working routine as a children’s book illustrator. I send all my finished work off to DropBox so it is secure. I also use DropBox to transfer files from my desk top and scanner to my iPad. Everything is exactly where I need it when I need it. Thanks
Fix process leak in latest update !! 1/5
Extreme battery drain after updating the Dropbox app to the latest dark-mode version, noticed that the Dropbox app is still working in the background even after quitting the app permanently and restarting the phone. The Dropbox process is stuck, I deleted the app and now everything is fine...I won’t reinstall until you fix this issue !!
Dropped box 5/5
By Beverly Ortiz
I love the app. Hands down. But I wish it didn’t take up the same space if not more in my devices as I’m using Dropbox to delete items from my phone etc...as it turns out, I have to download Dropbox save my photos, delete them from my phone and then offload Dropbox because it’s still taking up space. If developers could find a way to fix this, you guys would be the superstar I always thought you were.
Dropbox for an individual but avid user ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5
For a very long time (several years), I absolutely swore by iCloud as my only (paid, at least) storage system for anything I needed it for, including documents, photographs, graphic design work, etc. However, iCloud has always had some downfalls, but I used to think they were outweighed by the fact that it's built for and meant for use on Apple devices, which is my current situation (I own an iPhone & a MacBook Air). After trying out the Dropbox free trial (I think it was 30 days, which is pretty standard and a good amount of time to see if you like it enough to purchase), I really started to enjoy its additional features that iCloud lacks, primarily all the facets that come along with the ability to share files in Dropbox, and it also is perhaps even more user-friendly than iCloud is, although I have a hard time speaking to that since it's ALL I've ever used for quite a long time. I now have active subscriptions to both Dropbox and iCloud, but I was able to drop my iCloud subscription to the lowest paid tier after I started using Dropbox primarily, and I only use iCloud, now, when it's simply more convenient, which it still is in some cases. I really enjoy how easy it is to access Dropbox right from Finder or from whatever file manager I want to use since almost everything integrates with it because of its popularity! If you're unsure, you might as well at least give the free trial a try and see what you think! But I don't think anyone will regret using this as their primary cloud storage app!
NO Dark theme 1/5
There isn’t Dark theme in this app for my iPhone 5s/6. So just ⭐️
Way too buggy, across all platforms 2/5
I’ve had more issues with Dropbox than I can count. One of the most frustrating has been shared folder names not updating on other devices. However, this new one takes the cake. The app has decided to store half a gigabyte of cached data on my iPad, and the app crashes every time I try to clear the cache.
Piece of sh$t
I really wanted to like Dropbox 2/5
This is a review on Dropbox in general. I wanted to use Dropbox to back up files I accumulate on both my phone and my computer over time onto a cloud. This includes work files (minimal though) and (mostly) personal photos/videos. But I have so many issues syncing files whether it be from my phone or my computer, I just can’t do it anymore; it takes way too much time. And I’ve had the paid version for a couple months now! I thought maybe Dropbox just had a learning curve but the issues are perennial. I constantly have to troubleshoot the syncing and google solutions for things like clearing the cache on my Mac. It’s like I have to treat Dropbox like a baby, only back up 50 photos at a time or it glitches and never uploads at all. Even troubleshooting pages from the Dropbox website don’t solve my problems, even if it’s only 4 simple steps.
I don’t understand—I thought DropBox was a large and reputable company used by professionals. I’m using Dropbox for mostly light, personal reasons and it doesn’t work properly. Looks like I’m going to have to back up the old fashioned way: external hard drives.
Pain to upload vids to dropbox. 1/5
Tried many times to upload a 30 second video from my iphone 8 to dropbox and the upload never initializes. Just stays on the “waiting” part.
Total sh*+show 1/5
Beware exporting photos to your device! I exported several photos, as I wanted to upload them to a different Dropbox account. Dropbox automatically created a folder in my photos album for every single photo! Now I have to go through and delete thousands of photo folders from my iPad photo album, which you can only do one at a time! This is completely stupid!
Where did the bulk download function go? 1/5
By TB Lover
6 months ago I was able to select multiple images and download to my iPhone all at once. Did Dropbox do away with this functionality?
Exporting is slow and requires to keep the app open and active on the export screen. I must export a video because dropbox’s server are so slow the quality is too low to watch. File size caps are a pain. Exporting multiple files at once is a pain. If some shares a file for me to edit, I must have the available space in my Dropbox to edit a file in their Dropbox. All of this is ridiculous.
pls fix 4/5
please please PLEASE reinstate the feature to swipe the left side of the screen to go back into your file list. just updated and this feature is gone, pleeasssee reinstate this
Wish I could give it less
Great app!! Video pause issue 4/5
By uriah bear
Love this app...had it for years very reliable!! Recently having issues where videos are pausing but the time keep moving and audio keep going out. Other than that everything perfect!!
Scan document keeps crashing 2/5
By Foodie Shutterbug
App is generally useful, and the scan document feature came really handy using camera instead of full sized scanner, but it’s been crashing consistently for months whenever I try it
music won’t play all the way through, even when fully loaded, if its not downloaded for offline listening.
By Jamil Ali Bakhdoud
I disagree w the very first review 3/5
By dp disaster
Google drive uploads st almost lighting speed it uploaded....,, 9000 pics and vids and screen shots and just JUNK in.... maybe 15 minutes. Drop box..... try again next week. I was using ALL my data drop box. Drop box. Drop box. It’s a decent app I like the set up and idea. But. Almost anything is taster. Easier to use. And put it’s in multiple places.
Sorry bout it
Now it’s terrible 1/5
I just updated my iPhone and now all the mp3 apps or music apps that you can put the downloads from Dropbox and the music wont show up it doesn’t even recognize my upgrade some still show 2GB I can’t believe this ? This needs fix ASAP
Needs folder download for files 3/5
Love the app and it’s good for transporting files into my music app...however there doesn’t seem to be a way to download a full folder of files or multiple files at one. It makes it very time consuming to download each file one by one then folder them without losing some or downloading some twice.
No Showcase functionality 2/5
I love Dropbox Showcase, but can’t access the ones I’ve created through the app- very frustrating.
Stopped working 1/5
I use Dropbox everyday all day (desktop, tablet, mobile). This review is specifically for the mobile app. I can’t log into the mobile app anymore! I’ve spent about half an hour trying to resolve. I can still access Dropbox on desktop and tablet
