The Possibilities

You would assume this app is for convenience to browse your files from yet another platform, but it could mean so much more... Great that Dropbox made its way to Xbox though 👍

No Functionality in Windows 10

Not much about this app that is worthwhile. You cannot drag and drop between programs, edit photos, link to them or anything but look at them in the window that opens it up. When you try to use the settings it just goes gray and stops working. Completely worthless as an app. I've been using Dropbox since it first came out and it works great on my Android but whatever Microsoft did for it to be so bad I can't even guess. Terrible functionality.

Very poor app for Windows 10

The app keeps freezing and failing to run. Although, when it works, it is great for transferring photos from either an iPhone or an IPad to a PC. However, the app is unstable and leaves you wondering if it will work the next time you open it. I really think Dropbox dropped the box when they upgraded to the Windows 10 version.




Platform: Mobile

Much better than OneDrive

This is a fantastic example of the Windows 10 platform (UWP). The app has strong performance during all times, easy sharing and quick access to all my cloud files. I haven't ever had a single crash with it, either on desktop or mobile. Its speed and stability (on all platforms, to be honest) made it a better contender than OneDrive in many situations, for me (mainly retrieving contracts or other important documents when I'm outside the office or home). Kudos to the developers!

Platform: PC

The only lacking is real-time notifications

I would like to get notifications for changes made to a shared folder. Right now the app gives me no indication of any changes to shared folders, I have to figure it out myself from the list of files in the folder structure.




Platform: PC

Doesn't work with Windows 10

Constantly freezes and you have to close the program and reopen. Also, it won't upload photos from any device I have hooked up. Don't recommend!

Platform: PC

inaccessible with Narrator

This app has many unlabeled buttons, is nearly impossible to opperate with a screen reader like Narator. Blind users should keep using the Dropbox for desktop app and the Dropbox website for now. Dropbox team, please improve the accessibility of this universal app.

Older version better

I like the older version better. I like being able to see dropbox in File Explorer.

Does not work

I have a link sent to me to access dropbox files. You crap app is downloaded already on my phone. When I select the "see folder" link in the email your website pops up says I need your app. Deleted and downloaded twice. Yet still your website says i need to download. Common, You should test your software before putting out.
