HOW IT WORKS
1. Browse through your Dropbox folders
2. Long-press on the folder you want to download, select "Download folder to..." - or use the "Download all to..." button
3. Browse your Android's device local storage, and tap on the "Select" button to start the download

FEATURES
• Ability to create new folders on the local storage on the fly, so you don't need to use a separate file manager
• Supports both internal and SD card storage (defaults to device-defined external storage, navigate up to find other storage options)
• Downloads performed in background via an Android Service, so you don't have to keep the app running
• Ability to retry failed downloads from the report screen
• Support for MediaScanner, allowing other apps to immediately recognize downloaded files
• Authentication performed via OAuth and Dropbox's official API, so the app CANNOT read your Dropbox password
• No ads

NOTES
• Only one download job is performed at a time, subsequent jobs are queued and executed as soon as the previous are completed
• You'll need a Dropbox account to use this app, but the Dropbox app is optional

Great, but gifs don't work Gifs are downloaded with the image shown in dropbox, not the 'moving pictures'

Nice. Could have been better. I like this app. I would have given 5 stars if the app had a pause and resume option. When I receive calls, download gets interrupted and it starts from beginning. A pause option would be handy when you're on a slow network and want to browse web in the middle of downloading. I also suggest a download manager like interface in the app with the list of all files grouped according to folder structure and with a nice progress bar. All the best!

Workes well if you on good connection The "retry failed files" function always crashes the app. And its truly folder downloader, you cant download failed files manually in the app. And you cant use it to sync, it just creates another copy of files or overwrites them, downloading them all over again.
