I have Dropbox on 2 iPhones and 2 iPads. It has worked flawlessly, until now. The icon on one ipad is faded. If I click on it it says "waiting" forever. If I try to delete it I get the normal message "If you delete " " you will lose all the data". It does not say Dropbox between the quotes. I click "Delete", but nothing happens. I guess it is deleting " ". Then I try to reinstall it from the App Store. That doesn't help either.
So, I sort of have Dropbox, but can't use it. I sort of DON'T have it.
Open iTunes and select your device. In the navigation on the left, select Apps. You'll see a list of all your apps on the right along with a display of your home screens. Scroll down the list of apps until you find Dropbox and click the Remove button next to it.
I'm learning as we go. I opened iTunes on my laptop with the USB connected. I found the spot, but my only option is to update Dropbox. I click that and it changes to "will update". Then I click Apply. Then it says waiting for sync to begin. Then I wait some more. You have guided me well, but I'm still stuck.
I've got it working on my iPhone. But on the iPad, it's just stuck. I tried reinstalling, and now it's back where it was, faded icon, won't delete, won't load, won't work!
