In the latest update of Dropbox for iOS it invited people to share their ideas or thoughts about Dropbox. So here I am and a lot of unnecessary jumping through hoops was necessary to get here. I notice it is almost impossible to send ideas or comments directly to DropBox. They have have apparently blocked all direct access. They don’t even have a category for ideas, opinions, feedback, or suggestions.
I’ve been quite disappointed with Dropbox since it dropped support for the version of OS on my iMac. I’m stuck with the version I have so that’s it. Now Dropbox is useless to me. I used to use it to exchange larger files with people, now and then. I will probably look for an alternative.
It’s weird though that every time I go online with my computer I get a prompt to log-in to DropBox. What for? Why log into something that doesn’t work anymore? So I just cancel the prompt and carry on.
My confidence in cloud storage solutions has greatly diminished. I don’t need the file stored online somewhere. I just need it sent to a customer. A higher memory allotment for an email attachment would be better for me.
I notice there is no suitable label category for comments or suggestions.

If you're on an older operating system that is no longer supported, you can uninstall the Dropbox application and it will stop prompting you to sign in.

Most mail systems have a rather small attachment limit as it's just not an efficient method of transferring data. System admins also keep the size limit low so as to not fill up their servers with attachments that people never delete.

 

Dropbox helps you to get around those limits by sending someone a link to the file you wish to send, allowing them to easily download the file, and the entire process can be done on the Dropbox website. Just upload your file through the site and you can create and send a view-only shared link.
