Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
We have a problem with our iOS app, which is using the built-in iOS 7 (and above) dropbox app extension to import dropbox files into the app. Randomly many users get the following (which is a error relayed from the dropbox API):
"The operation couldn't be completed. (dropbox.com error -11004.)"
Any ideas if the dropbox developers are aware of this ongoing problem? Also, is there something the app can do to mitigate it?
We haven't been able to reproduce it reliably on any specific networking conncetion (be it really bad EDGE/2G or fast wifi) however for some users it seems to occur almost always.
We can't see the pattern yet... do you guys know if the ios dev team has heard about this? Surely our app can't be the only one experiencing it, since it's a system-wide thing. However we rely on Dropbox for file imports, so it's quite bad user experience.
That's great to hear!! We've been looking at ways to workaround it but can't reliably reproduce it. It really seems kind of random from our end.
Please keep us posted on how it's going. Either here, or on twitter @OpinionPod.
Thanks a lot!
