Dropbox for Android: Share photos in a snap!

Posted by Tony Grue on January 11, 2013

We’ve just launched a nifty little update for Dropbox on your Android devices that makes it super easy to share collections of photos with friends and family.

Organize and share photos and videos with albums.
 

Choose your favorite photos and videos from family gatherings, show off the amazing soufflé you created with friends, or highlight your mad snowboarding skills with gorgeous albums that everyone can enjoy from their computers, tablets or phones – no Dropbox account required!

Just tap the share button to select the photos you want to share

 

From the Photos tab, tap the button on the top right, and select the pictures you want to share. You can add them to a named album to save for later, or just grab the link to share via email, Facebook, or Twitter.

Get the update now on the Google Play Store, and have a blast sharing your photos and videos with friends and family!

Would be cool if you could make instant upload delete the local picture after upload. With this sharing integrated with dropbox there is no reason to have the pictures stored locally.

Did you raise the photo quality ? Because they look better when downloaded and view inside Android instead of Dropbox app.

Tell me why I need this service. When android and Google + will do. The same .

I was waiting for this function, and was using Google+ Instant Upload, yes you are right, but I do not use any social network, so it is very nice option for just photo backing up and etc. now sorting is so easy

There’s an app for iOS devices that does that already, since last year: https://itunes.apple.com/app/heliog/id585625620?mt=8

Oh for crying out loud, let us sort files by date, especially the shared folders and camera uploads!
I have over 2 photos and to find the latest I have to scroll all the way down, it hurt my hand swiping so much.
And have notification when a new file added / changed would be even better!

Dropbox is the best way to keep up with all your photos no matter if you lose your phone or tab, or computer, cause your photos and video are store in like a cloud so they are never lost even if your computer is stolen or crash. Your smart phone also if you lose it or change phones because you don’t have worry the saved sd card either because it will all be on dropbox.

Please make delay before uploading the photos (about 15 min). Because some times you need to delete bad photos from phone.

Dropbox android app is unbelievably bad. No managing of folders or files, no sorting by date, size etc.
It’s beyond me why you release so weak app, lacking all the basic stuff.

These are great improvements, it’s now so easy to share a specific set of pictures.

Could you tell me when this is planned for the iOS app, because this is not possible on the ipad yet.

Cheers, Herman

Share your photos and videos with your family & friends with this update for dropbox on your android devices.

Please, please let us have the same option in other folders (like the default “photo” folder) – just having this for camera uploads makes the other folders where I back up all my other photos look so weak.

Jeff Petersen
January 31, 2013

Well, what happens if you don’t use or don’t want to use Google+. It’s called having another option. It might not be the option for you, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an option others will use.

Would LOVE to see the ability to sort favorites on Android app. This is possible on the iOS app, just lacking on the Android app.

Is DropBox supposed to delete photos when I delete a photo from my phone? Does it completely stay in sync? I see DropBox uploads a photo automatically when I take a new pict but will it delete a pict as well if I delete a pict from my phone??

Pamela H

Dan, I’ve been having so many issues using Dropbox some automatic camera photo upload on my phone.

#1 There are so many duplicate photos in my Dropbox “Camera Uploads” folder.

I’ve tweeted, sent feedback, and contacted them and I’ve never gotten a response.

#2 Somehow there are less photos in my Dropbox “Camera Uploads” folder than my phone’s Camera folder. I’ve had automatic uploads on ever since I’ve had this phone.

Good luck getting any help because I haven’t. Syncing for Androids would be a miracle. It will not only not delete a pic if you delete a photo from your phone but it might create another/extra copy for you to deal with.

@Tony Grue – Do you have any suggestions?

I like Dropbox, and I’m a long-time PC user of your solution. But the Android app lacks some basic features. Most importantly, there is no “sort by date”, “sort by size” or similar available. Should not be hard to add, right?

Thanks for listening to your customer!
