  • Very Good

    by ShamCavalier

    A very good app, I recommends it

  • Keep it updated

  • Love the interface, just fix the bugs.

    by Peerless design inc.

    Love the layout and the concept, but it won't open images for the most part. Once in awhile it does, but most times I get an error message. Couple of other things are a little clunky, but hopefully they will fix those and "pretty" it up a bit and I'm on board.

  • Easy like Sunday

    by Diebunnydie

    Nice interface. Easy to use. Glad I picked it up.

  • Easiest dropbox manager so far...

    by BobyBeejdishhdj

    This dropbox manager app's setup is simple, less time to blunder around which editing options to perform when u need to, however, I highly suggest a "password" security option when opening the app. All my other dropbox related apps that I keep have it.

  • Please allow separate login!

    by Reviewer J

    I was excited to use this app as an alternative to the Dropbox branded app so that I could use one for work and one for home. Unfortunately this app insists on logging in through the Dropbox app so I can't have separately login. Completely useless for me. I wish I hadn't paid $4 for it. If you change this to allow separate login I will try it again and re-rate it.
