iPad : How do I select all my files in Dropbox and export them in iCloud ?

iPad : How do I select all my files in Dropbox and export them in iCloud ?

New member | Level 2

Hello Dropbox users !,

 

my Question : 

 

I have an iPad. What is the exact step to enable exporting all the Dropbox files, pdf, etc, to iCloud or to any other cloud storage app ?

Is there a way to bulk export all or most of the files ? 

I cannot find any button or action allowing me to select one or all files and export them to

a service like iCloud or iCloud Drive, or to any other app such as a pdf app.

 

thank you for guiding me !

Hi there, currently there isn’t a way to export all files at once, at least via the mobile app on an iOS device.

There might be a method using the iOS Files app, though we wouldn’t have any info on how to do this on our end.

On a desktop, you might be able to copy files from the Dropbox folder into iCloud via the method you normally send files there. Again though you’d have to refer to the documentation on how to do that.

I am sorry if it seems sarcastic because it is not:

Are you legally ALLOWED to add useful interface features on iOS such as the one requested above? I think an option to place all folders at the top or at the bottom before/after respectively sorting would also be useful on iOS.

Similarly, are you legally ALLOWED to make the Android UI less cluttered and less redundant?

Like anything else with iOS vs. Android, it seems the patents Google and Apple have both “conquered” leave the customers feeling like they have bought a car which comes with 1,000 horsepower and only 500 of it is useable when because 90% of the time it is using the rest to send all driving information back to the dealership and manufacturer and parts manufacturers, OR the car only wants to drive on roads approved of by the manufacturer which limits the production of 3rd party replacement parts of the parts are not proprietary.

Again, I am sorry if it seems rude to ask, but I am thoroughly annoyed after years of nothing but disappointment with all mobile devices.
