Bloated beyond belief. Over 260mb with loads of extra features nobody asked for. I use Maestral now, which just sticks to Dropbox syncing, in an unobtrusive way - just like Dropbox used to do when it was good.

DropBox is ok and works well but DropBox Paper is a complete fail and let down. It's confusing, limited, makes it hard to collaborate. So I'd give 4 stars to DropBox and 1 to Paper.

Shockiing app that uses 1GB RAM after just 10 minutes - even though all files are synced. Unsure what the app is doing but it is a memory hog on M1 Mac Mini (16GB unified memory). I kill all dropbox processes/tasks with Activity Manager and restart. Bam, within a minuite back up to 500 - 600MB RAM and less than 10 minutes later back up to 1GB. I was a long-time user but can't possibly recommend this app.

Some half brained product manager brain farted and the engineers complied to make this stupid 100th bad file-brower app. There is absolutely no use for it. It hinders everyday flow of searching & opening documents. Why would I have a useless app; when the OS gives me a sexy file browser and your job is f'ing just SYNC - IN THE BACKGROUND. Do not cross the holy line & get space on my screen - if you had just done what you do best - i.e simply sync; I would have been happier & productive.

I didn't have a negative experience like others, but I am a new user and so far I like everything about the app, all important files in one place!

Dropbox remains one of the best and most reliable cloud services. Ignore the 1 star reviews, which are more deserving (from my direct experience) of Backblaze and their sad ilk.

I have used it for some years and it hasn't let me down, so I stay with it. Sorry to see that some have had rather more negative experiences.

1 star review is being generous. Treatment of long time users and limiting to 3 devices imposed without warning is rubbish. Yes, it's functional but hostility to users from company deserves 0 stars - not possible to score that low but I am sure many users would if they could. As for all these "5 star" reviews - fake reviews, one-time posters, probably some dropbox employee paid to post them! Message to dropbox - treat your users with respect!

Note that this version installer, 103.4.383, freezes finder in Mojave. This happened to me on two different computers with the latest Mojave. After a while of the scary freeze, the computer was released to work again.

Excellent Cloud based storage solution. Been using since it hit the web. Not interested in having to upgrade to 1TB of space for $, for just one device. Understandably Dropbox is a business and needs to show a profit. Thanks for what you've given, and will continue to use Dropbox as a secondary Cloud solution via the web interface.

A very good cloud data storage service that's good for sharing and other purposes. Used their free service for years and the app has worked fine and integrated with macOS well. Never had an app crash through the years, including the current version. Now, how the heck did it receive a 1 out of 5 stars rating on Macupdate? Makes no sense.

There are people on Fiverr that will add a good amount of free space to your Dropbox by using your referral link.

I have used Dropbox for many years. It does what it says on the tin, and is perfectly capable of updating itself. I have given it four stars rather than five because of recent years it has tended to become rather over-featured, with unnecessary interfaces and facilities. I am only writing this review because MacUpdate is pestering me, after downloading a fresh library copy. Be warned! If the emails do not stop I will try unfollowing the app.

I have been using dropbox since 2012 and it has always satisfied me ... But now that it has reduced the device limit to 3, I am looking for an alternative! 5 GB is enough for me I wouldn't know what to do with a TB ... But they intend to make me buy an upgrade ...

I canceled my subscription, April 16, 2020. They charged me April 23, 2020, with 119.88 EUR It's pure scam. You won't get out of the shit until you cancel everything through PayPal. PayPal is very good! I removed two other bloodsuckers in the same tube. Stay away from the DropBastards.

Still the most stable and fastest cloud storage throughout these years! Dropped G Suite and Office 365 after simultaneously using them. Loving Dropbox Transfer, it is like your builtin WeTransfer. Yes, the price is still a hurdle but fk it. By the way, All these complaints I see are just "free" users complaining about 3 computers maximum for their free account?
