Folder Downloader for Dropbox

Folder Downloader for Dropbox


Folder Downloader for Dropbox lets you download entire folders from your Dropbox account to your Android device.

Note: since Android 4.4 KitKat, you can download files only to internal storage. External SD cards are not supported (working on a fix).

Problems? Drop me a line at [email protected]

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

Strange Pixelated issue, BUT... Works as described. However, when downloading pictures they appear pixelated when viewed in the gallery. This has been noted by other users too. HOWEVER... the pictures are not corrupted! If you move the downloaded pictures to another folder, either in the DCIM camera folder structure or indeed anywhere, then view the picture the pixelation disappears! I am not sure what causes the initial downloaded folder contents to appear pixelated, but rest assured.. the downloaded images are NOT corrupted.
