1. Background App Refresh enabled. iPhone charged for 100%. Locked. Morning - 55% battery left! Checking stats from Settings->Battery and I see that from 02:00 till 10:00 ONLY Dropbox been doing something in background. What is more crazy: for EACH night hour it’s been active for 59 minutes in each hour!!! Like from 02:00-03:00 - active for 59 min; then from 03:00-04:00 again 59 min active! All hours from 02:00 till 10:00 it was active for 413 min overall if I count right, but anyway this is a huge bug! 2. I’m opening video 15mb size and it’s loads so slow... It’s 1080p quality original file. So dropbox encoding it to lower bitrate and showing me really poor video like 240p. This is really AWKWARD. Most stupid thing that it’s doing this even for videos like 1-3Mb size(same 1080p, but short). Answer: I don’t want each time tap download it, I just it downloaded automatically when I selecting videos. Make a cache for that also.
Nothing works, several files got corrupted and lost them permanently.
I have been a long time paid dropbox user. More out of necessity than anything else. My daughter is a model and many of the photographers use Dropbox to deliver photographs. She is also a dancerSo large video files often need to be shared via dropbox because they’re too large to text directly.However I find this app and Dropbox itself very very confusing. Things are not organized well even if you put things in folders they’re not easy to find. Everything just seems a jumble all the time. When I go to share photos I’ll select all, click share it will say it created a link and when I send a link it’s blank and empty. I am also a teacher in my school gives us unlimited Google Drive storage… And while I occasionally use Google because it’s so much better organized I try to keep my personal things and I work things separate. So I try not to use it for personal things unless I have to. Please Dropbox fix the mess. Especially on mobile.
Once Dropbox figure out how to swipe left to fast forward files, the app will be unstoppable. When I play music, I shouldn’t have to press “back” to hear the next song.
HTML files cannot be rendered correctly in Dropbox upon selection. It was good a year ago but went wrong in a later version. Not fixed yet. Hopefully this issue is addressed soon.
There’s a ton of background usage going on. Over 14 hours just in one day.
I have been using Dropbox for years without any issues, I installed the latest version on my iPad and it will not grab the files that I need. I just started training away from home and all the material I had on my desktop isn’t available. It’s also frustrating that while I’m trying to figure out how to get the files I keep getting asked if I want to upload my photos, no means no!
