Be the first to try a new Dropbox desktop app


 

I was hoping the initial email would have an email address to reply to but I could not find any. Looks like they are making a new desktop app. I hope someone on here has emails and phone numbers to let them know about the accessibility issues that I am sure, will plague the new desktop app. If anybody wants to try it, the link is below.

Hi Rob. I don’t have any problem suing Dropbox 62 right now. What seems to be the problem? I don’t understand.

What is this about?
I just use the folders, is this not how its done? The whole thing is surely going to integrate with windows menus as it does now??
I rely on integration of dropbox for most of what I do, so they had better not screw it.
The current one still has issues on prefs and login and share panels in my windows 7 machine.

I took him to mean a complete redesign. I've just left it to auto update, but if they are going to screw around with it I'll reinstigate my update blocker.

I haven't had the guts to try the new desktop app to see what has changed and what stays the same. It will be the new app eventually, though. Replacing the current desktop app. They keep calling it an app, which already makes me sigh and roll my eyes because I assume it means, windows Metro app.

You are making the mistake of believing that language still is used reasonably precisely and that people are reasonably careful about how they use words.  English is becoming increasingly unclear.  I just did a google search looking for information about the new app, which is presumably in beta or soon will be.  I found nothing.  But I did find that Drop box routinely refers to its current desktop application as an app.  Just one more example of the decline of English.  So there is no way to know what the new app or application will be.  Do you have a place where we can read about it?  Since I find nothing with a Google search, that raises the question of how long it will be before this app or application is deployed.

Or and apple or android app.
There's an app for that, there's an app for that.
I hated that phrase as soon as I heard it.

I figured out why nobody was reporting on it. It's a private invitation to try the alpha version. The below is the feedback email link and the features the page touts. I won't retain formatting when pasting, but I hope it helps others anyway. I'm curious though, why it seems to be only me who has gotten this invite? Probably because I use it daily. Dropbox, that is.

The below links are in markdown, so, sorry to all the people who still view these in plain text. Oh well. :)
