Yesterday I noticed something odd with the Dropbox app on Android. The phone’s notification for the status of a photo or file pending upload doesn’t seem to sync well with the actual Dropbox app’s activity. I had noticed this problem in the past once but did pass it off as an isolated case. Apparently I was proven wrong yesterday.
I was trying to upload a cropped photo to my Dropbox app when I noticed that the notification “1 file remaining” remained stationary even after when I saw within the Dropbox app a confirmation of the photo upload.
What’s supposed to be a real time notification is actually a 12-minute delay. No matter how long I waited that notification did not update.
I hope they fix the notification real-time sync in the Dropbox Android app pronto.
