I’m just going to leave these here…

Posted by Jon Ying on May 04, 2010

Whew, glad I got that off my chest. We know it’s been a long time in the making, but we’re super stoked about releasing all this stuff to you. Sorry for being so secretive!

To expand a bit, we’re announcing the release of our iPad and Android apps (available in the Store and Market, respectively) and the confirmation of our Blackberry app (out quite soon!). We’ve also got a shiny new Dropbox mobile API and developer program, and the announcement of some awesome partner apps that work amazingly with Dropbox.

Huge props go out to Will and Brian (iPad devs), Tom (Android dev) and Zed (API) for their hard work the past few weeks to get these out. These guys all deserve a huge vacation. Enjoy!

Yay! I checked for the iPad add this morning at 3:00am, apparently just a few minutes after you released it. Great timing.

The iPad app is exactly what I wanted. Excellent job!

Oh, forgot to say: the addition of the 4-digit passcode is a huge improvement for security. Thanks for adding that. Makes me feel better with all my files sitting out in the cloud now!

Now let me choose the folder to sync and have several folders just like Syncplicity does, and I'll change to you in no-time! :)

So i remember seeing a favorite option in a post before that would allow dropbox to sync certain files to the sd card so they are always available… is that still available?

I got the iPad app as an update to the iPhone version I had installed. What a pleasant shock when I opened it up and it wasn't a 2X iPhone app!

I haven't even checked yet, but does it work with GoodReader?

It doesn't show on my Android Market. I'm running 1.6 on a HTC Tattoo. And I thought you said, on one of your previous posts, that I was going to be supported :(

Thanks for the app. Now i am able to upload to dropbox from the mobile phone.
Is there any app for Symbian OS??

Top of the list: https://www.dropbox.com/anywhe

Maybe you should of checked in retrospect.

Holger
May 5, 2010

Very great!! It's almost perfect but it doesn't bring what I desired the most: To automatically sync some files (or folders) to the android device either automatically (I know this would cost lots of battery), every n hours or at least on demand. This would be helpful for e.g. KeePassDroid which could have always the latest update of my passwords, etc…

I hope you guys add this feature.

Brykins
May 5, 2010

All it is is a browser. Yes, it downloads files you open to your SD card, but why doesn't it sync everything like the desktop client? Pretty pointless if you ask me.

Embridioum
May 5, 2010

I only have a 2GB SD-card, and my Dropbox is filled with 2,8GB so I'm pretty happy that it doesn't want to sync everything.

Dextro
May 5, 2010

Oh great, yet another developer who forgot to enable QVGA support when placing the app on the market… Kudos dropbox, now I can't use your application!

Mark
May 5, 2010

Err, guys, have you seen the results for the top selling phones worldwide?

http://crackberry.com/idc-q1-r

Where's Apple in that list?

This is for ALL phones, not just smartphones.

So, given that, why have you released an iPhone app before a Blackberry, particularly when you consider a Blackberry's most likely to be used by business people and thus Dropbox integration is probably going to be of more interest to them?

Greg
May 5, 2010

Great addition to my HTC Desire. I wish the photos would automatically upload to the photo directory though, annoying having to change to the folder you want to upload to.

I totally agree. People waited a long time for an official dropbox app. But one of the most important features is missing. So for now the app is completely useless for me

Finally released! This really brings cloud computing and data storage a new step further.

Oh, by the way, if anyone is joining Dropbox after reading this article, then use this link below.

It means that me and you both get an extra 250MB allowance on top for FREE. Something you'll really appreciate when you start getting pop-ups saying 'You dropbox is almost full' !

Any plans to develop Drop Box for the Palm Pre? WebOS should be easy to configure and now that the company has plans to be owned by HP and build more phones and tablets in the future – seems like a logical next step.

Please advise.

Thanks for the iPad support. It's one of the things I was most looking forward to.

Finally. :)

Awesome to see, and as mentioned before, it would be nice to have a barcode/QR Code on the Android screen so I can make sure that I get the official app. As you might imagine, I'm a little paranoid about entering my credentials into just any app that has access to my files.

G Chan

It's sad that my HTC Tattoo (Android 1.6) can't use it. I can't find the dropbox app in the Market !!

Hi chaps,

Good work, just a quick question though. When you were previewing the release in a previous blog post if you took a photo you had the option to share to Dropbox. I don't see that on my Desire. Did that make it to the release meaning my phone's to blame or was that feature dropped?

Greg
May 5, 2010

Would definitely be useful, having to take photos within Dropbox is not so convenient.

Max
May 5, 2010

Disappointing that the app hasn't been integrated into Android's great 'share' functionality. I was expecting to see Dropbox appear in the list of apps that I can use to share any file, photo etc. As others have commented, it's a pain to have to specifically open the Dropbox app, rather than just taking a photo/video and selecting share via Dropbox (or Facebook, Twidroid etc etc). It also means that I can't use Dropbox with other apps that support sharing, such as Mobisle Notes.

Tom_T
May 5, 2010

I will buy that app as soon as you make it available!

Marc
May 5, 2010

I'm confused about the iPad app, as I downloaded this a couple of weeks ago. Is this an update being announced? There is no update in the App Store.

Joost
May 5, 2010

Nice Android app! Though I would like to see the the 'favorite' function and the photo gallery as promised.

One thing I do not particulary like about current version is the lack of possibility to upload any other files than listed in the upload menu. I have a folder which is monitored by my BitTorrent client and when I'm away and want to have something downloaded I just put it there. But the new client won't let me upload :(

Let's start off by saying I love your product. I would like to figure out how to make use of your pay model to support my clients. Is your 100G for a single user account? I use the free version (which seems to be enough for my users) but would rather figure out a way to be part of your paid service to support a company doing things right. Any recommendations?

May 24, 2010

While I'm convinced DropBox is the best thing since sliced bread and that the people working on it are children touched by the hand of god and are, in fact, beings of pure light and love, I just have this one little nagging question of whether or not somewhere in the DropBox EULA there is a paragraph that says that anything anyone ever puts in a DropBox automatically becomes DropBox's property which they can then exploit until the end of eternity and use in any way they can up to and certainly including the development of nuclear weapons and stealing any recipes the DropBox management happens to have a sweet tooth for.

I want to trust DropBox to the end of the world, the problem is: is that a smart thing of me to do?

Now all you need is the WebOS app. Dropbox sounds great, but unfortunately is of no use to me until there's a WebOS app. I held out for the best phone OS, now we just need the great app makers to get on board this phenonenal OS – especially now that HP has bought it and is destined to appear on a broad variety of devices in the not too distant future…
