Direct Shot for Dropbox

By Jeremy Conn

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Extend your device storage by skipping the Camera Roll and sending photos and video directly to the Dropbox cloud locations you choose. Stay organized and choose your desired locations directly from the camera.

Direct Shot for Dropbox requires an internet (WiFi or Cellular) connection to use.

1) Connect your Dropbox account (Free, Pro, or Enterprise)
2) Choose or create as many folder locations as you want
3) From the Direct Shot camera, choose your desired location and take your photo or video
4) Your media is automatically uploaded to the chosen Dropbox location, and never gets added to your Camera Roll

Direct Shot is perfect for anyone who wants to use the camera on their iOS device as an archiving or organizational utility, including:
• Designers & Developers — Sketches, post-it notes, whiteboards, magazines
• Teachers & Students — Assignments, notes, whiteboards, project elements
• Business Travelers — Receipts, expenses, rental-car info, directions
• Photographers & Videographers — Layouts, locations, lighting tests
• Contractors & Plumbers — Receipts, wiring, replacement parts, specs


Dropbox accounts are available in Free, Pro, and Enterprise versions, and Direct Shot works with all three of these account types. Direct Shot needs access to your Camera (for images and video), Microphone (for video), and Cellular Data (for upload when away from WiFi) to be awesome... make sure to give access when prompted. You do not need to have the Dropbox app installed on your device to use Direct Shot.

Customer Reviews

Amazing!! Except...

First of all, this app is super slick, very visually appealing, and very simple to understand. The concept is powerful, and I cannot find anything like it on the App Store (believe me, I tried). The thing that I was expecting to be a disappointment but wasn’t was that it wasn’t *necessarily* tied to the same Dropbox account as the app on my phone. After syncing with the Dropbox app, you can switch accounts in the Dropbox app and this camera app will stay in whatever account you left it, which is great. It would be great to have the option of manually selecting a Dropbox account, independent of the app, but what can you do, right? I got it to work, and that’s important for separating business and personal use.

You see, I manage the IT side of a damage restoration company, and the workers need to take LOTS of documentation photos to a shared business drive... but that’s where the problem happens with this app... you can only upload one photo at a time. It’s honestly a dealbreaker for what could have been an essential app, but the process of only taking one photo, then pressing “Use Photo”, then waiting eight seconds until it finishes, then pressing “Done” (for some reason), then pressing “Maybe Later” when it offers you Direct Shot iCloud for the millionth time (it happens every time you do this), and THEN pressing “Take a Shot” to start the process all over again!! It’s WAY more work than is necessary.

The app (I think) could have been designed to have a camera window which is always on and fills half the screen, with a little filmstrip below it to show photos that you’ve already taken (with X’s to delete them if you want), and then a little button at the bottom that says “Upload”... ALL on the same screen. Snap-snap-snap-upload-DONE! It would transform the app entirely.

Sure you can take videos, but our office doesn’t have time to watch an entire movie for every project.

And then (and this would just be a nice touch) it would be great to have slo-mo video. But we can’t have it all, can we?

Overall, it really is a great app, with just one tragic, crippling flaw for me. Direct Shot, just allow multiple uploads, and you’ve got my loyalty (and maybe even my money if you turn it into a paid feature).
