Best Storage device ever!!!! 5/5
Keep doing what you're doing apple.I Overly Love this app!!!
Three devices limit... 1/5
Free version of Dropbox recently notified me that at this time it will allow me only three linked devices. I briefly considered upgrading (my wife already has separate subscription) but then noticed that on top of everything PC version shows me blank screen when I try to signup - there is some long standing bug that I see people complaining about online for a while and I am affected with to.
Reason I used this service was because it was set it and forget it. It was a little bit more robust then OneDrive/iCloud and more users and apps used it. But few days ago I learned that to get back what used to work (free sync of few GB between all my machines) I need to pay substantial price (and very expensive price per GB I plan to use). And then spend non-trivial time to solve some long standing problem and get software working.
Instead of trying to solve that problem and then pay money for subscription, I plan to check different options and migrate away altogether from Dropbox. Especially after I have seen how subscription price for two people compare to the price of good NAS.
Dropbox Plus 4/5
Update: Thanks, Dropbox Team, for the added storage capabilities. I notice your other recent improvements are mainly geared toward teams and other social-sharing groups, so they are unnecessary for me. However, I absolutely LOVE the added storage space (for $20 extra) and will never abandon you now! Only features lacking are: ability to store 1) animated gifs; 2) Live Photo’s; and 3) modified/edited photos. For those I have Apple iCloud (setting me back another $99/yearly). Fix those items and it’s 5 stars!
Great App but very unstable after update 5/5
I’m having the same issue as Dudebraj9000. I have an iPhone 8 and have been using Dropbox for years. I agree that the updates have had no added value other than adding additional steps.
When I’m uploading photos, I can no longer scroll down to see which photos are uploading. It jumps back to the top. Also, when I go to a photo album from Dropbox to upload photos, it will jump to photos from 2017 or 2018 unless I scroll real slow.
Also, if I “move” photos from one folder to another, it now leaves me at the folder the photos got moved to instead of the folder I was working on... really annoying. I believe that if I “copy” photos from one folder to another, it will put me back to the folder I was working on, which is the way it has always been.
Lastly, I had disconnected any auto uploads or syncing to Dropbox from the start, yet there is an album again called Dropbox with photos sitting in it... some very old photos. So I don’t know if those photos were uploaded or not. I have never auto synced my photos with Dropbox because I like having control of it.
I gave you 5 stars because I use Dropbox every day and I trust that you will fix these issues. Overall, it has been fantastic, but more so in the older versions.
Bugged unlinking 2/5
By Brandon Schmeidler
I can only link three devices with a free account. That’s fair. What isn’t fair is not being able to unlink devices because it, for some unknown reason, requires you to unlink at least TWENTY FOUR devices. Yes you read that correctly.
No way this is intended. Please fix this immediately.
Keeps crashing 1/5
I have this on my iPad Pro 11 and every time I open a file it crashes ! I’ve removed it and reloaded it, but it continues
It won’t let me export my files. 4/5
Basically, I intended to use Dropbox to download music and export them into different apps, but it won’t allow me to export it to other apps or create a shareable link. Is this supposed to happen or...? Would appreciate some help.
hap pee 5/5
By Dogs Rule🐶🐶
i found tyler joseph and i’m really happpy 10/10
Used to be good 1/5
Sad to say, Dropbox now belongs in the trash heap. The new “features” are useless and the prices are usurious compared to OneDrive, Google, and Sync.com. I’m moving to OneDrive when my subscription expires.
Dropbox: a great idea, ruined by mediocre people.
Why no reasonable file structure? No easy way back up the file tree? 1/5
For three decades workers have used a filing system that made sense. You can see all of you folders and when you press back it means you will actually go back up the folder tree. For DropBox to ditch that is extremely bad design. In addition, if you receive links to files you’ll need to actively save the files to your own folders or risk losing track of it forever.
It seems that for many years user interface has been refined but for some strange reasons dominant companies are throwing the established rules and logic away. For what, I’m not sure. My use case is not unique and I think if Dropbox designers actually used the app they would drastically change the workflow.
Awful, buggy integration with Apple Files app 1/5
Dropbox integration with Apple Files is buggy and broken. As a result, Dropbox works poorly (and even causes conflicting copies and data loss) with apps that have the best and most modern support for Apple Files. It’s becoming a real problem and is driving me further and further towards iCloud Drive instead of Dropbox.
Best app 5/5
Dropbox is really crucial. It is an app that has completely changed the way I work. I am no longer tied to a single workstation. All files are available wherever I am. I never need to worry about whether I saved something somewhere or not.
How do I cancel this service?
It’s Great! Please Don’t Destroy It! 5/5
Dropbox is one of those solid apps that can relied on across all platforms. The latest changes are terrible and I’m sure that one review won’t make any difference to anyone at Dropbox but I hope that you go back to the folder that just works. This new embedded web browser thing is not user friendly, and adds unnecessary complexity and tediousness to existing workflows. That’s the nicest way I can say “this latest update is garbage.”
I have to clear the cache after every single upload or my files will just sit there saying “waiting to uploads” indefinitely. I’ve tried on two different high speed wifi connections and it’s the same.
Also, if I’m grabbing files from a specific folder on my iPhone why do I have to hunt down the folder every time? It should remember the folder so we don’t have to navigate to it every time. This is especially annoying since, as I mentioned, the uploading requires you to go one by one and clear the cache repeatedly.
Not worth it 1/5
Can’t upload anything more than a picture- don’t waste your time installing
I’ve used Dropbox for a few years now.
I used Shoebox until recently they shut down their app so I transferred all my photos to this app. All 7600+.
It would be really nice if this app could accommodate Live Photo’s. A lot of my photos are ending up in the trash after going through them all because they’re stuck on a frame that’s blurry or out of focus.
It would also be nice if it was less hard to find when the picture was taken. Like make the date of when the picture was taken more obvious, or have a detail section like Shoebox did.
Don’t listen to the cultists giving this crime more than one star. You can’t fiddle with Selective Sync from the web, so enjoy spending $20 each month to have every synced device bricked by downloading everything you upload. Am I the one doing something wrong? Probably! But there’s NO CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER(?!), so there’s NO WAY TO TEACH ME HOW TO DO IT RIGHT. Easier to just boycott it and spend the money I saved in the first five months on a normal external hard drive!
Utterly useless! It just doesn’t work!
Needed to urgently open a share link sent to me by a colleague. Took close to 10 minutes to get through the required new version download, endless prompts, required signup, annoying tutorial, etc. I don’t need the barrage of useless crap when I just want to open something someone has sent me.
Greed and No Appreciation 1/5
I have used Dropbox since it was first introduced. My 2GB grew immensely as I referred everyone I knew to this awesome service, gaining 250 MB each referral. Now the Money-Grab. They decide to limit basic accounts to 3 devices...forget how many people I brought on board. I know there is more money to be had from paying folks, but common Dropbox, stop kicking your old supporters when they are down and forcing them to leave because they can’t afford your Plus plan price. Just feels like a low blow. I feel used...I’m out! Off to NextCloud.
Teresa North 5/5
I have worked in Customer Services my whole life! I have been a cosmetologist since 1993 and owned my own salon in Kentucky from 1993-1999. I moved to Tennessee thinking I could afford a salon myself but finding out that it is very expensive here I haven’t been able to afford my own salon! I have worked as a cosmetologist for years but at this time I’m working at Parsley’s Market as a cashier plus so much more! My job consists of keeping the dinning area stocked and clean as well as making sure customers are number one always! And that’s they are satisfied to the fullest extent. I am very professional and get along with anyone and I do the best I can to get the job done and done right at a very fast pace. If given the opportunity to prove myself I can show you I am a team player as well as a very hard worker! I just want to better myself and have benefits as well! I hope you will give me the opportunity to meet with me and see the person I am and I feel that I would be a great asset to your company or team!
It Deletes Game Files as You Try to Backup Data 3/5
It ruined one of my Minecraft Pocket Edition game files. This is a great app, but I *do not* suggest this for trying to save game data. The coding is disconnected, and you cannot open it.
Severely Disappointed Recently 1/5
I have been using dropbox for about six years now and it has been an excellent service. However, the recent limit of three devices is crippling to me because I am constantly switching between four devices for note taking, photos / documentation, and keeping my important files between desktop and laptop. I now have to link and unlink devices several times a day, and that is raw.
I was considering upgrading, but I don't need all of that space. I hardly use a hundred Mb at a time. I'm slighted. I will have to look for a different service.
Was Useful .. Not Anymore 1/5
Operative word is WAS ....
3 device limit or you need to pay exorbitant monthly fee — is absurd
Willing to pay reasonable fee for service but developers now decided to rip you off - time to find a user friendly alternative
Time to leave 1/5
I’ve been using this service for many years now and currently subscribe to the plus plan. Got the email saying they were upgrading my space to 2TB and raising the cost whether I like it or not. I would had just gone back to the basic account but they purposely ruined that with the 3 device limit. I am now moving all my files out and saying goodbye. It’s been great but this is definitely not for me anymore.
Over it. 2/5
I think it stinks that you can o my have what? Three devices linked to your account? That makes no sense.
$$$$$$$ expensive 1/5
By ml baxley
takes 4 taps to send a 1 file.
such uninspiring software to use!
Painful and WAY OVERRATED. 1/5
This app is painful. I like the service itself, other than it's more expensive than it should be for what it provides. As soon as there's a viable alternative… I'm gone.
The iOS app is painful. It has the absolute most basic functionality a file saving app can have… and that's it. Really don't care about the superfluous 'Recent' files and want to hide that functionality? NOPE. Want to sort folders individually like you do on your desktop? NOPE. Want to change the size of the panels so you can see the full file names? NOPE. Want to cancel a bulk upload? NOPE.
And oh, you better make sure you have time available because you’re going to have to cancel your bulk upload ONE AT A TIME. Tried to upload 1,000 files but gave up because the app is so bad at, you know, IT’S ONE JOB? Be prepared to MANUALLY CANCEL EACH OF THE 1000 FILES.
Poorly conceived, poorly designed, and not useful beyond incredibly basic file operations. It's always trying to be everything other than (Paper? Hello? Give it up) the one thing it should be amazing at being: A FILE DROPBOX.
I'm convinced the coders/designers of this app barely, if ever, actually use it for day-to-day activity.
Crippling Device Limit 1/5
A phone should not towards the device limit. Also, if I had 5 devices and reset one of them I can’t sign back into it without removing two others that are still working.
Dropbox is impossible 1/5
When signing up, it said this was free minimum acct. once signed up it is only a free trial. Now I want to cancel subscription and the places that the instructions say to go to don’t exist. There is no way to contact the bums. Right now I am so furious that I cannot see straight!
What am I doing wrong? 1/5
By Dsg graphics
Why can’t I upload more than one file to my Dropbox folder? When I select more than one file I don’t give the option to upload it to Dropbox. It would be nice to select the files you like to upload and send them all at once thanks
Terrible upload 1/5
By Disgruntled Reader 71
This is a terrible, Terrible implementation of the app. Upload speed is glacial, and It won’t let you control upload speed. It also won’t let you cancel more than one file being uploaded at a time. Horribly sloppy. Don’t try to upload large numbers of files or photos at once, you’ll only experience frustration.
Ridiculous that you can’t use it on more than 3Devices!!! 1/5
What’s the point of using it if I can use it on all my devices!! I have more than 3 devices!!
3 device limit is untenable 1/5
I had lots of space from referrals from years ago. Happy user for years.
I get it, you need to make money.
But it’s 2019, and I have plenty of space on other cloud storage platforms that don’t restrict how I can access my files...
I’ll never use Dropbox 1/5
The fact that I have to download the app to view a document my friend sent me is so annoying I’ll never use your services..
But then it got worse I also have to create an account just to see a photo I asked him to share with me!
No reason to have Dropbox when Google Drive and OneDrive exist 2/5
By A twenty year old male
Like I said in the title, there’s no reason to own the basic plan, and the subscription is WAY overpriced. I mean, you get the entire office suite for $69/year, and that has 1TB included. Dropbox wants $120/year. The basic version has 2 GB free, which is essentially useless, and Google Drive and OneDrive have free versions with 15GB and 5GB, respectively. It just doesn’t make sense.
Great app 5/5
By Khan Mumin
I really like this app
Why iOS10 or later??? 1/5
I've been using Dropbox for years, recently accidentally logged out ad was not be able to log back in, the only reason is because I have iOS 7; why on earth I should have new phone every now and them to be able to use Dropbox? Why can't you guys leave ole backward compatible app just for pellet using the old phones??? I hope you see this, make see improvement .
5 stars for a good cloud backup provider. But I will be leaving at the end of my subscription. Price is way too high for what I need.
Photo upload constantly breaking 3/5
The last couple of weeks I only seem to be able to upload photos to Dropbox from my phone about 25% of the time. The rest of the time I select my images from my camera roll & they just sit there... doing nothing. I can force restart them app, restart my phone, connect to WiFi, connect to data, connect to a charge cord... nothing. When it’s in the mood not to upload the nothing works. This is the main method I use to move images from my phone to my work computer, so this is EXTREMELY frustrating. Emailing photos 2-3 at a time is not a long term solution, especially as we have a paid account at our office.
Does NOT manually upload videos from iPad! 1/5
I may need to unsubscribe this and find an alternative storage app. I can no longer upload videos from my iPad. It says "Waiting to upload" for an hour and nothing happens ... not even the progress bar where it tells how much it has uploaded. It just stays at zero. I'm about to uninstall this app.
Soo helpfull 4/5
I really appreciate it !!
thank you dropbox for this wonderfull file-sharing app💛
Extra features excuse to charge more 1/5
Adding new features (hardly any worth noting) and racking on $20 more a year as an excuse for features I neither need or want is shady. Cancelled since there is no other option. Several more options out there these days that don’t cost $120 a year. Loved Dropbox until that price increase this morning. I’d rather they just said we are increasing our prices instead of trying to hide it behind worthless new features that no one asked for and aren’t given a choice to refuse.
Cannot get emailed pics on my ipad 3/5
My real estate agent emailed me a lot of pictures using Dropbox, and I cannot pull them up on my iPad. I actually get a lot more out of dropbox using my computer, but I don’t always have my computer with me!
Not working for me 1/5
By Some random guy..
I tried to use this to move music to my iPhone like everyone says online.. but there’s no option to direct download like everyone claims.. it just has copy/export and a few other pointless options that don’t work.. I also can’t even play mp3 audio files in the app itself
ropbox is s sh!t. Longlive googledrive 1/5
When it has bandwidth limits to access a file it s*cks. Using gdrive for 1-2 years and It does not give error to access files like this “uh! You cannot access these dile due to monthly use limit ”. Dropbox is s sh!t. Longlive googledrive.
You have to find more angels to fund this app. Maybe ppl will use it without any access limits
I ❤️ Dropbox 5/5
I LOVE DROPBOX!🥳 Literally the greatest app ever!
Do not want this 1/5
I don’t want this!!! Please delete me!!
