Don’t get me wrong.. I like this app and 9/10 times, it works flawlessly. My only issue is the way that photos and files are organized makes it very difficult to browse anything. For example, if I added a file to a folder with 100 other images, viewing under “Files” is a long list. If I view under “Photos”, some newly uploading pictures that probably weren’t created “recently” drop to months ago which makes looking for them very difficult. Also, their free space has been quite generous to me. Although this doesn’t affect my rating, it annoys me how Dropbox offers 1TB for $10 a month or their pro services. Sorry, but as a consumer, I’m just more tempted to try Google Drive or OneDrive as they offer 100GB for $2. Since I currently use only 40GB, I see no reason to pay so much for space, especially when using a 128GB SSD MacBook, therefore I can’t even store that much on a normal basis. I was a huge fan of Dropbox, as everything with it works flawlessly, but the pricing option is just really poor.
Horrible naming scheme for photos
I use Dropbox a lot from my desktop and would use more from my phone but the app offers no options for Tate naming of photos you upload. I want to keep the same name as used by the phone. No messing with any of the meta/exif data either. If there are name conflicts then let me decide how to resolve and offer choices like windows. Currently the app names photos with the month and day and time. Two years of data will sort together alphabetically. Very lame. The carousel app is better for naming but still does not offer a choice. If you don't upload all you photos with dropboxes apps, you'll have duplicates around with the iOS name and the Dropbox name. Very very annoying. Google drive doesn't do this. The other file manager apps for iOS keep the iOS filename and don't tweak the meta data either. If they didn't exist, I'd cancel my Dropbox subscription altogether. The new integration into iOS 8 is very cool. If they just fixed the naming scheme, it would be a perfect solution. Now I avoid it for mobile use.
The foundation of my workflow
I have used Dropbox off and on for the past few years. It has always been available as a sharing platform. I use it personally, but also at work.
In the past few months, I moved all of my files into the app. Part of this decision was to consolidate my cloud storage footprint, so that I can better manage my files and be productive. It was at the same time that Microsoft and Dropbox teamed up. Given that I work in education, this is an indispensable collaboration. I could not be happier with the ability to store, edit, and share right from Dropbox.
In addition to everything above, the share extension for Dropbox is the icing on the cake. This is the best cloud storage application out there and the ability to acquire free space is a huge plus.
