Re: What's new in Dropbox - issue #2

At what point is Dropbox going to fix the issue with file caching on iOS? Are you guys aware of how ridiculous it is that I frequently need to remove and reinstall the app because it's gotten too large and you can't add a simple button to clear the local data?

Google Photos has a way to optimize the amount of local data you are using for caching purposes.

how does that affect the dropbox caching?

I have problém on ios 10! The screen on my iphone 6 plus is only half-used, thus navigation is much difficult. Erroneous update, don't install!

I use to use Carousel religiously too. I loved using it pull up pictures & to also find pictures by date & more plus free up my phone space. But guess what? I have a great solution for you. I found a new app that I love even more. It is called EVER. http://www.ever.com/ It does the same as Carousel did but way more. It frees up your space and pulls your pictures from everywhere such as facebook, instragram, dropbox & more. It reminds me of Timehop, Carousel, the updated iPhone photos albums but all together in one app. It even reminds me what happened last year or two years ago & further (depending on how far back your pictures go back) #throwback which is neat like FB or Timehop does. I got rid of my other apps cause this one does it all. It also backs-up all of your photos too for you. This is great just in case anything happens. I cant wait to see what else they come up with. 

 

HOPEFULLY DB reads this & later sees if they can partner up with Ever some way! slightly smiling face

It seems like the "sort by name" and "sort by date" have disappeared from the iOS folder view and it is extremely difficult to find items now. Please put it back.

If you uninstall Dropbox, all the cached thumbnails and files go with it. Since Dropbox doesn't give a clean cache or optimize storage feature, we have to resort to uninstalling and installing to recover disk space on the smartphone.

Still disappointed that you have not resolved the one email / one account issue.  As a freelancer who works with several companies I cannot belong to more than one team.  This is crazy!  How 1980s is it to use an email address as an account identifier??  This makes working with companies almost impossible for those of us who are contractors.  Please fix this...

I'd like to also put in a vote for supporting the edit-in-place feature on iOS. As others have noted, not supporting this results in multiple file copies being made across different apps. 

 

I love using Dropbox, and I think it's a natural component for any iOS device. But I would really like to remove the need to periodically go through, double-check to see that each file is safely saved in Dropbox, and then delete it from the other locations in which it appears. It is tedious and time consuming. And, as others have noted, I realize there are apps that support saving back to Dropbox, but I have entire workflows that involve multiple people that are set in apps that do not. Moving to a different app in order to gain this feature isn't a practicable workaround.
