Droplr is great cloud service for sharing files. On the other had, if you are looking for a cloud storage then this is horrible choice since you can't use any directory / folder structure. Its just bunch of files in a long list. However, the desktop app has very nice sorting and search features so its relatively easy to find your files even if you have long list of them. Although, since Dropler has real infinite storage you will most likely end up with huge list of files sometime in the future so some directory structure would still be appreciated.

Overall Droplr is great service. Its very affordable when you compare it other cloud sharing services and whats even more important is the fact that its rock solid. All the files are stored in Amazon S3 servers so you can truly trust and rely on Dropler when it comes down to file sharing. So, if you are looking for cloud storage for all your files check out DropBox but if you want rock solid and very fast and easy file sharing Droplr is definitely worth a look. Before I went with Droplr I gave CloudApp, Mibox, Copy and Hightail a try. At least for me Droplr was the best option but you'll never know, all of them have their ups and downs.

2GB files can be shared
Infinite storage
Low price
Custom visual identity - you can use your own domain and logo.
Reliable and fast (uses Amazon S3)
Good support (but slow, see cons)

It took the support over 48 hours to reply my email
No directory / folder structure

Looks like v3.5.0 is still free at the App Store?

I've been very happy with Droplr for the past few years and I'm thrilled to see it moving forward and adding new features.

While I too use Dropbox, Droplr serves a different function for me. It's almost like a dumping ground where I put files I'm not interested in organizing, but want to keep and/or share.

I use Droplr for:
- Screenshots for support emails.
- Quick files to friends.
- URL shortening.
- Adding links to files in my todo manager, which doesn't support attachments.

Forgot to mention my favorite use-case. I love how Droplr shows you many times an item has been viewed. This can be handy when collaborating with someone so you can get a feel for when and what they're working on. It's funny getting a "Looks great!" reply from someone when Droplr tells me they haven't even looked at it yet.

Cloud. It has some limitations, but it is free and although I've enjoyed droplr, I won't pay $5/month for it.

While I use Dropbox for my file sharing and synching, However, I also use Droplr as a part of my workflow.

One thing Dropbox doesn't do is screenshots. When I am working on a client design, I will often screenshot the progress, just to give the client a quick visual update.

Using my custom hotkey, it's a snap to screenshot, and upload, and be immediately given a URL to paste into my client emails. I don't really focus on "versions" of my work (for that, I'd use Adobe Creative Cloud) ... so I don't usually ever go back to a Droplr upload. I screencap it, send it and forget it. And it just works.

I also love that premium users can use a custom domain. Everything I send to clients appears as if it's coming from my main website, displayed and showcased nicely.

That said, I do wish they'd give an option for annotations. I don't use them myself, and it's an extra click for me to "upload". This is a newer feature, and I honestly preferred the faster/auto upload.

This is almost sneer worthy compared to DropBox.

--Half the storage
--no file structure preset or allowed and built on yet another paradigm of "you don't need to know and we won't tell you"
--no direct links to files
--link pages with ads instead
--the app sucks up to Apple pushing its latest OSX with only an obscure page where one can find a pre-Lion version to run on Snow Leopard.

Ummm... why would I put up with any of this, even for free, when just about any other service is better?

What would be the point, when there is DropBox?

So there is a Snow_Leopard version available at:


but going to the developer's front-end website, i.e. the one to which MU provides the link, you wouldn't know this because it is one of those minimalist webpages with only links for downloads, i.e. not much information. One has to google to find the support page for this link I provided.

There is a login/register button at the front-end site, and once one joins, one might get more, obvious options, but such information ought to be readily available without joining the collective.

But now reading about the uninstall issues (below), I will have to think long and hard before installing.

Additionally, the download is the app bundle, not a zip or dmg file, which seems to be a hinky deal too, i.e. one click too many and the thing is installed.

Cattus--unfortunately it is true when I posted my concern on the Droplr website this is the solution that was offered:


We don't "attach" ourselves to any programs. We are sandboxed and follow all of the Apple standards for interacting with your system.

You can remove us from the keychain by deleting any entries you find there
You can do a Spotlight search and remove anything you find with the name "Droplr".
You can do a clean reinstall of your OS. :-)
Best wishes!


I cannot believe that they suggested a re-install of the OS. I had indicated that I attempted repeatedly to delete it from keychain on all three operating systems and on reboot it always reappears in keychain and asked if they attach to any program or modify any other plist file but they indicated that does not occur and yet it keeps reappearing in my OS X3.
I posted it to warn people and the suggestion, by another person, that I should not download is somewhat obtuse given the circumstances. My comment is intended to preempt this issue for other users.

If that is their answer, I would also react negatively. I find the last solution, reinstall the OS, entirely boorish and unacceptable in a decent dialog. I may find the positive part in that it does not hang to parts of the system, and that may be deleted by finding all files with app name.


Cattus, though, it does attach itself to other programs. Otherwise after I delete all remnants of Droplr, to include searching any and all hidden Droplr files, it should be eliminated but again it appears after deletion in the keychain. I scoured all three libraries in each operating system to include but not limited to...... the launch agents/daemons, preference files, container (in lion and ML) all to no avail. Supremely annoying!


Surfspirit; that solved the problem. Thanks for the information/help.


I find your inability to delete Droplr using the keychain very strange. I had no such issue. It is good that you mentioned though, because obviously is there is an issue, even just a quirky file that isn't behaving, they should know about it.

I recommend CleanApp over AppDelete because it has a preference pane logger that records all files that were installed and then tracks them. That way, when you want to delete. It knows exactly what files need to go.
