Dropbox Updated Through Google Play, Fixes Camera Upload Issue on Android 4.4.2

A new update is available for Dropbox users on Android, mostly concerning users on Android 4.4.2. The newest version of Android introduced an issue with the camera upload feature through Dropbox, but it appears the development team has been able to squash the bug with this latest update. 

In addition, a new setting to allow only camera photos to be uploaded to your account is now present, so you won’t have to worry about other items from your Gallery app being auto uploaded.

You can grab the latest Dropbox update right through Google Play by following the link below.

    Is this saying in a nutshell that only pics in the android camera folder will upload automatically if you select camera only?

    Why the Dropbox standing alone with 2 GB plus sharing option. if you look BOX, Mega are they gives 50 GB storage. http://wp.me/p3zd1e-1eY

      With nice,petite file size limitations.

  • dFolio is a better auto-uploader anyway. For one, it doesn’t rename the files like Dropbox does. No trouble with dFolio on 4.4.2 that I’ve noticed…

    • Adrynalyne

      I’ve never had dropbox rename things on me.

      • In the ****auto-upload**** feature of Dropbox (at least initially — maybe they’ve fixed this), all photos would be re-named with a date and time stamp. I assume this was to avoid name clashes across devices (or even across folders on the same device). Because my Nexus devices already take photos which are date stamped, this was gratuitous. dFolio’s auto-upload just copies the files as is from the device to Dropbox.

        In fact, check this out:
        “Once your photos are uploaded via the camera upload feature, Dropbox will automatically rename the image file and add the current date in the file name. This is useful, as you can quickly re-collect the exact date when a photo was taken.”

          Guess I’ve never really noticed because Samsung does mostly same thing with camera shots.

    Still enjoying the free 50gb of box that I got with my Nexus 5.

      Said no one ever? 😉

      • Philip J. Fry

        Why? Lol its 50gb free. I love me some free stuff 🙂

    • Adrynalyne

      My problem with Box is the small filesize limits.

      Dropbox on OS X also integrates nice with the screenshot utility.

      • Philip J. Fry

        Yea, that’s my only complaint with them. Other than that, I’ve had pretty good luck with them.

      Chris must have been in here.

      • Philip J. Fry

        Unfortunately, he’s still here.

      I got 50gb by editing my build prop to say I had an Galaxy S2 I think.. Can’t remember which phone it was..

  • Yum!
