Please re-add the [blue] progress bar that appears on the message prompt when a file is being uploaded.
This bar does at least two important things: lets the user know a file is not stuck (e.g. due to poor internet connectivity, which isn’t always reflected in the internet status icon); lets the user know how much of a file is left to upload (so they can determine if they have enough time to finish waiting for the upload to complete before attending to their next task which may require them to be out of DropBox or without an internet connection, or to instead cancel the upload early to try again later; something is obviously not intuitive if the user decides to cancel an upload to do something else when they may have only had to wait a half second more for the upload to complete, and a progress bar would’ve alerted them to that).
These issues are exacerbated by the fact that an upload completely stops without warning as soon as the upload screen is exited, even if the app is just minimized instead of closed. This exacerbating issue may be another area where improvements can be made, related but separate to the progress bar issue above.
I inquired about the progress bar issue before, wondering why the bar was no longer there when it used to be, and I was informed that it was intentionally removed. This is an example of a counterintuitive move - a feature that seemingly provides no discernible benefit to remove and significant benefits if present - so please re-add the progress bar as soon as convenient. Much appreciated.
