Dropbox Lite Edition

Dropbox Lite Edition

Motivation: Current Dropbox updates currently clock in around 250MB. With frequent automatic forced updates that you cannot opt-out of, this often eats up bandwidth at inopportune times. For someone constantly on the go without robust internet connections, this can be very frustrating. (Also, on my Mac computers, the updates often fail right at the end and have to start all over again essentially turning Dropbox into malware.) My gut feeling, as a developer myself, is that there is feature creep at play here which is bloating the app.

 

Proposal: A Dropbox lite (or minimal) edition that strips out non-critical features to slim down the size of the app and updates. I feel like a basic file-syncing app, with deliberate effort, can realistically be made an order of magnitude smaller.
