Improve mobile app interface

Improve mobile app interface

Helpful | Level 5


I would suggest a few optimizations for the mobile interface, in order to find the notes more easily.


  • Order notes by date of last update (and not by last view)
  • Remove icons before each note (really usefull?)
  • Display the name of the folder in which the note is stored under the title
  • Optionally display a quick overview of each note in the list (like in Evernote)


  • Add a "Folders" tab at the bottom, to display all the folders in which notes are stored (to help find notes more easily)
  • Offer dark mode 🙂

Thanks 🙂

NOTE: I have an iPhone 6s Plus running iOS 13.5.1 and have a Windows 10 Pro laptop

List of Dropbox Improvements:

GMAIL 2 step verification using [Dropbox mobile iPhone app] similar to how GMAIL iPhone MOBILE APP IS USED (similar to how GMAIL uses gmail iPhone mobile app to press 'yes button' so you can allow GMAIL LOGGING IN)

Better easier more user friendly more reliable Dropbox documents' scans (make it obvious how to scan documents)

More obvious exporting sharing (both iPhone and win 10 pro)

Who's talking
