Dropbox for Android Beta gets another Maintenance Update



Here’s a quickie for you DropBox fans out there. They’ve updated their application to version and builds on to bring with it various bug fixes. Nothing groundbreaking for the end user, here, but if you are using the beta version and want the latest updates, it’s something you’ll want to go get. Here are the changes introduced in the last two releases:

  • Better error logging
  • If system clock is wrong, lets user know the reason for not being able to log in.
  • Bug and stability fixes. – Edited files were re-uploading every time their directory was browsed. (Though may still show up a single time for each file, when you first use the app)


  • Visual & Manifest changes to support low-end small-screen phones such as the Motorola Charm, as well as tablets.
  • Added more logging, and a button to e-mail a log to Dropbox, for debugging
  • Check to make sure that uploads aren’t larger than 300MB (server-side API limit)
  • Proper handling & escaping of all special characters in file names
  • Offline viewing of downloaded files should work again.
  • Various stability improvements.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. too bad phandroid won’t let me whore out my link :(

  2. As much as I love dropbox for easy transferring stuff like documents or apps from my computer to my phone when I’m too lazy to plug it in, it’s hazardous because it tries to upload +100MB files from my phone via data sometimes. Up in Canada data’s expensive as heck.
