Highly useful; fills a void in the official Dropbox app functionality. One big issue on Android 5: the actual SD card is not detected, and can not be used for backup/sync. DropSpace is still useful for backing up files from your device's internal storage, but in my experience SD cards are much less reliable and really do need regular backups.
Unusable After spending several sessions trying to configure this app to sync my files I have given up and decided it is easier just to copy them manually. This is one of the most unreliable and most difficult to configure applications I have ever used.
3 things 1: This is one of the few Droppbox sync apps that works for me (a lot of the others frequently get stuck syncing). This is, of course, vital. 2: If a file is deleted remotely and later updated locally, it is not recreated remotely when syncing (It says "preserving remotely deleted local file" but does not upload the updated file). Need more syncing options. 3: The "Manage sync list" UI is confusing, it is not clear what local folder pairs with what Dropbox folder.I'm tempted to manage sync pairs directly from SQLite (but am too coward for that). But hey, it's free.
Still no external sd card This app will only sync the emulated internal sd card. There's no option to browse to the actual sd card. A pity, as the overall idea is what I'm looking for, but it's still missing much-needed functionality in order to be properly useful. Add the ability to use the actual sd card, and it'll get 5 stars.
Difficult user interface. Once I figured that out, worked quite well. Limited in that it only backs up from SD storage, but that is easily managed,
Learning Curve To Use But Works It takes a little time and effort to understand how to set up syncing, but it does work. It's all in the touch and hold to display directories or select them and set them up. It's a good freebie Dropbox sync and configurable. The scheduler is also a great addition.
