    Published: 2016-09-23, by .

    Dropbox allows you to upload and edit your docs in a team

    • Intuitive, clean, and organized UI
    • Detailed text tutorial
    • Long sign-up process
    • Still a few bugs
    • Some features missing
    • No interactive tutorial

    "Edit your docs in Dropbox"


    For those who work in teams, Dropbox Paper (Beta) lets you use your iOS or Android device allows you to use your Dropbox account to upload your document and work together to stay on sync wherever you are. You’ll be able to make updates, changes, and give feedback in real-time as well as get notifications so that you always know what to do. Once you’ve signed in with your Dropbox account, and your Paper (Beta) account, you’ll be all set to see your documents and start editing.


    Dropbox Paper features an intuitive, white minimalist design, making it easy to start uploading. Once you’re in, there are good templates that show you what to do.


    You must have a Dropbox account, and then, you must sign up for your Dropbox Paper account, making this a lot harder than it should be. There are still basic features missing like basic folders. There should be a basic tutorial instead of just a text doc.

    The best cross platform collaborative note taking tool I have seen. Strikes a great balance between casual and power users.

    Useless, because it almost always fails to sync, and can't be used locally either because it is constantly trying to sync. The regular dropbox app, and other apps have no problems so it's not my connection, but even if it was this app does not handle it well.

    Takes forever to open a simple doc containing 3 lines of text. Stay away.

    It looks clean and nice, but despite being beautiful, it leaves a lot to be desired. It has bugs here and there, once you add an image to a document you can't delete it, documents take up to 6 seconds to load even if they only have one line, unreliable offline mode, etc... I love your browser version but the Android app needs improvements.
