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?

So there is a Snow_Leopard version available at:

http://support.droplr.com/kb/policies/droplr-snow-leopard

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:

Albert,

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!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

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!

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.

Mac users absolutely do not download this program it will be nearly impossible to completely delete from your system; I have used AppCleaner then went into the user library to find remnants of this pest but to no avail. I have repeatedly tried to delete it from keychain but on reboot it is back again. This is no accident that developers have intentionally created this software flypaper. It has gotten to the point were I am thinking of doing a clean install to get rid of it. The minimal value this program provides is not worth the aggravation. You have been warned—these developers are not above board with the design of this program. This program deserves zero stars and even that would be generous.

If indeed impossible to delete, then a very bad mark for the developers. This should NEVER happen.

Surf Spirit; what I have found with all three operating systems is I cannot delete Droplr from the keychain permanently. It always reappears after a reboot. Check your keychain for Droplr and let me know what you find.

Well, I don't how it won't delete by the keychain but I figure it out how to deleted permanently, somehow if you delete in the Mac OS X keychain it will come back again, but it seems it's locked on the browser, I use Chromium, so maybe it's a problem with chrome/chromium, Go To Chrome/Chromium -> Preferences -> Show Advanced Settings-> Privacy -> Content Settings -> All Cookies and Site Data -> Look for Droplr and delete it! Now after a restart no Droplr is shown in my keychain.

Surfspirit; your recommendation worked for Lion and Mountain Lion but for snow leopard I went into googles advanced settings--passwords/forms---passwords and deleted the droplr password. That appears to have eliminated all remnants of Droplr from snow leopard as well. Your advice to go into advanced settings put me on the right track. Thanks again.
