Editors’ Notes

We’d be lost without Dropbox—it’s an indispensable part of our digital toolbox. But for all its usefulness, the thing we appreciate most about this cloud-storage app is how little we have to think about it. Whether we’re sharing documents between devices, uploading photos directly from our camera, or emailing large files to friends, it all just works—seamlessly and effortlessly.

Okay...

Hello,

I just wanted to say that Dropbox is actually a really great place to store Office files, sorry if I was harsh earlier. I wouldn’t trust it with all of your files, because I’ve had a lot of issues with the iWork things and all that. The app itself works fine this way. Just wanted to say that.

Suggestions:
-Maybe we can do a one-time payment for a little extra storage? Like pay $1 for 2 extra gigs. I would definitely pay a few dollars for that.
-Support for Apple files. As I’m writing this, there’s no way to edit Pages/Numbers/Keynote files from Dropbox. I use Pages a lot and so do a lot of other people, so you need to add support for those.
-Once, I opened the Dropbox app and found that it wouldn’t let me create any Office files. (Like when I clicked “new file,” the option for creating Office files wasn’t there.) I signed out of Dropbox and tried to sign back in, but it said “there was an error” when I tried to sign in even though I got the sign-in info correct! This wasn’t a huge deal since I was able to log back in a half hour later with the create files feature back, but you might want to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
-PowerPoint files take FOREVER to load up! (At least for me they do.) Please make it quicker.

Thank you for reading!!!

Great App but very unstable after update

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.
