Previous Dropbox .ipa file ? (Downgrade app)

Explorer | Level 4
Hi,

I'd like to downgrade to the previous Dropbox app on iOS. Because I do not like the changes.

Can I download the older version somewhere ?

Thanks

You can try and see if an earlier version is available via iTunes maybe? They often keep backups on your machine, however, no there is no way of getting one via Dropbox themselves.

Hi Sigatonoatini,

Which specific changes do you not like? Is there a feature that was removed with the update?

Can I jump in on this please and say I'd also like to agree and say the removal of the option to hide Recents makes the app, for me, redundant. Its not something I can use in a professional situation now.

Hi Mark,

The option to hide Recents was not removed permanently. It's been temporarily disabled for some users as we investigate a crash, and should be re-enabled soon.

Hello guys! Does anyone have the Dropbox.ipa file for iOS 9.3.5? I can't follow this Solution because my Apple ID doesn't have this old version. The only way to install Dropbox on my iPad is to use the .ipa file. So please, if you guys have it, please share it to me! I'll be very greatful!

That likely won't do you any good as Dropbox is preventing older versions from connecting. Even if you install it, you probably won't be able to sign in using that version.

If you already have the app installed and are signed-in, it may still work, but it's only a matter of time before Dropbox disconnect older clients.
