Hello,
I want use drop box basic account for sharing .apk file direct link to my website.
I heard that drop box basic account have 20GB bandwidth limit and 100,000 download limit per day. So i want know if .apk file is 20MB, then how many people will be able download it? 20MB × 1,000 = 20GB right? So is possible to get 1,000 download a 20 MB .apk file by 1,000 audience .

Hey @4rt45566, thanks for using Dropbox and posting on our Community!

 

Your calculations are about right, but keep in mind that if a single person downloads the file from your shared links more than once, it would also count towards your bandwidth limit. 

 

I hope this helps!

Hey @4rt45566, are you downloading the files using the browser on your phone?

 

If these files are stored in your Dropbox account, can you use the Dropbox mobile app, to save them to your device, to see if you get the same behavior?

Yes I tested, but sorry to say it's same.

The opening of the files is done by the device itself, so, if its not opening then there is an issue with the software on the computer - does the machine have something to open it? 

 

Also in terms of your bandwidth remember that each 20mb file will have some basic overheads so you wouldnt be able to do 1000 but possibly a tad lower.
