Default [Q] Dropbox installed but not syncing

I sideloaded dropbox into my 8.9HDX but it's had no content upgrades for over a month. Any ideas? Wireless is working fine.

2.3.12 version of Dropbox works fine on my 7". Alternatively you can use es explorer for syncing to your dropbox
Galaxy S3~4.1.2 Stock root...4.3 or not 4.3??That's the question
Kindle Fire HDX 7~Awaiting Play store and some decent tweaks/roms
Xperia X10i ~
X10i Mini ~ MiniCM 2.3.7 Unlocked BL nAa Kernel
Xperia U ~ICS Root, Unlocked BL, Things to come?
Iphone 4 ~ rooted/CM7 (hate that thing!! )

Dropbox does NOT work the same way on the mobile as it does on the PC. It will not automatically sync the files. It's more like mobile interface to your dropbox, but it will NOT automatically sync files TO your mobile device.

If you want full autonomous sync'ing you need DropSync (separate app).
