Better Music Dropbox app
The app is slick looking and easy to use. Do recommend as quick to get music on device and start listening without the hoops of syncing with ITunes. Great if sampling songs, listening to podcasts or audio books.
Missing a few items I would like to see.
One is it follows Apple conventions on pause/play. For example when take or receive a call app pauses but does't resume when call is ended. Another example is music plays through speakers when other external sources (Bluetooth, headphones, etc) are removed. It should pause instead to avoid music blaring out unexpectedly.
Two, the ability to "download all" of a folder instead of having to choose each file,
Three, delete all option. That way can easily clear out all songs instead of having to do it one at a time.
Great app for audiobooks
This app makes it simple to load parts of audiobooks through dropbox and then listen to them. The button to “quick rewind” 30 seconds is great when you miss something because of some noise or spacing or whatever. It is great.
Exactly what I was looking for
I had a need to be able to play MP3 files which I had stored in Dropbox and had tried a lot of the freebies. None did it as well as this app.
This is really good and very easy to use.
