Lightbulb [App][23 July 2010] DroppedBoxx - Windows Mobile Dropbox Client

So I've been working on a Dropbox client for Windows Mobile called "DroppedBoxx".
Now this Thread was originally started to get feedback from a few Beta builds I did also to offer support to users. Now that its a paid app I will continue to offer support and update the changelog I'm just not allow to promote it. (or link to where its being sold)

Also, I have done a bit of a writeup about how to use it (and what all the buttons do) on my Blog here (Updated to v1.1)

Features (Currently)
  • Login (of course)
  • Sync selected folders from Device
  • Browse Dropbox files and folders
  • Download Files
  • Download then email
  • Upload files
  • Take photo and upload
  • Delete Dropbox Files
  • Save Login/Session details
  • Copy/move files around dropbox
  • Create new Folder
  • Display account usage (numbers are there but a graph would be better)
  • Track application (self) usage

See Roadmap/Changelog Post 2

Tested Resolutions (in order from most tested)
  • VGA (480x640)
  • WVGA (480x800)
  • QVGA (240x320)

Beta Version: v0.7.1

Reserved: Change log does here...

v1.7+: (Future)
  • Progress bars for Uploading/Downloading

v1.6: (Next release)
  • Rewrite to a lot of the sync feature (slower but better functionality)
  • More bug fixes

v1.5:
  • Few bug fixes
  • Note: there was a problem with the Marketplace version of this update which causes the update to fail.

v1.4:
  • Added the ability to open a file with the default application after its been downloaded
  • Fixes Login bug (oauth_timestamp) caused by API changes
  • Fixed bug where application adds a newline to the end of uploaded files (makes .cab installers corrupt)
  • Fixed bug where subfolders were being deleted unexpectedly
  • Fixed bug where selecting a file then creating a folder turns the file into a folder and creates a folder inside there

v1.3:
  • Fixed bug in syncing where creating new folders causing nothing to be synced in that folder
  • TimeZones are now fixed so syncing works properly across different timezones
  • Pressing the Back button in the Dropbox browser goes "up" a directory (instead of crashing :P )
  • Code refactoring/Optimizing to speed up syncing a bit
  • Added File size to files in the list in the dropbox browser
  • Fixed some error handling with a few things
  • Alternative theme with more of a Dropbox colour scheme

v1.2:
  • Sync Status screen to show progress when syncing (current file/folder amount uploaded etc.)
  • Fixed error when connection is dropped while browsing Dropbox folder
  • Fixed bug where sync folder no longer exists (Also asked to be removed if attempting to browse it)
  • Fixed NullException errors while syncing a new folder to Dropbox

v1.1:
  • Two-way syncing
  • some UI Tweaks (all bottom menus have labeled buttons)
  • Back Button added to Dropbox Browser to take you directly back to the sync folders screen (Instead of going back through each folder again)
  • Camera Settings goes upto 5MP now (VGA, 1MP, 2MP, 3MP, 4MP or 5MP) (again Subject to suggestions)
  • Fixed some errors to do with lost connections
  • Sync Folders screen is updated when syncing is complete (v1.0 only refreshed when the button was clicked again or the screen reloaded)

v1.0: (First Paid-for release)
  • One-way syncing (Phone to dropbox)

v0.7.1: (Last Free Beta)
  • Fixed bug in email attach (now working again)
  • Added setting for camera Resolution (VGA, 1MP, 2MP or 3MP) (Subject to suggestions)

v0.7:
  • Added labels to the buttons on the homescreen (other menus to follow if feedback is good)
  • Upped the camera resolution to 2MP (will work on getting the devices max or allowing user to set this)
  • Added background uploading to the camera-to-box feature (bigger images take longer )
  • Added application data usage to the info screen (resets when you close the app)

v0.5.4:
  • Fixed bug: Error handling files bigger than 2,147,483,647 bytes
  • Fixed Icons looking terrible (now they only look average)

v0.5.3:
  • Login screen now has an average looking background!!
  • Changed the "Remember Me" function to store the tokens instead of user info (Dropbox prefer) Also this now acts as an auto login. (Everyone will have to login again, sorry :P)
  • Added an "Exit" (door) button to the Sync Folders screen to Exit the app instead of having to logout then exit (Requested)
  • Info/About screen added with DroppedBoxx version number and Dropbox account usage (Quota, used, shared. Note: The actual usage is the used + shared) Will work on a graph or progress bar thing for this
  • Added the settings screen (at the moment all it does is let you "Forget Me" to stop the auto login/remembering password)
  • more but i forgot...

Trimmed...

XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site


 
This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

ahh, WVGA.
What phone do you have there? (Im guessing the Topaz)

I think there is a problem with the Upload file/save file selection screens under that resolution, looking into a fix.

Thanks for the feedback tho, exactly what im after

Yes, Topaz. Looks very promising.

Edit: 0.3.9 rectify the display issue.

There is another bug when choosing to install to sd card it installs to program memory, under \program files\ it doesn't even create its own folder.

Very nice app
To the OP:
To fix the installation to SD card issue: Actually i was incorrect still looking for solution
Couple of suggestions: no popup keyboard symbol ...at least on my tp2. I use my popup more than my hardware keyboard so might want to look into that.

I am also sending you a pm.

Thanks for the Tip, i'll look into it tonight.

As for the popup keyboard, I wasnt too sure about it as i wanted the app to be full screen and since my Touch Pro is only VGA it needs all the room it can get. I'll have a think about it, maybe just have it for the login panel/inputs?
