DropBox for BlackBerry Updated to v1.0.39 with Bug Fixes

dropbox for BlackBerry

Just on the heels of FileScout adding DropBox support Barrist let us know DropBox has updated their own BlackBerry app. DropBox has an updated v1.0.39 version (From 1.0.37) of their client which they hope resolve some annoying issues without adding any new features I see. Still its nice to see they have not forgotten about their BlackBerry users.

Fixed in this version of DropBox:

  • saving non-ascii texts results in garbled text
  • handling of edge cases when running out of space on sd card and in device memory
  • open-edit-upload usecase wasn’t working for devices with encryption enabled
  • share link freezes for some users
  • open-edit-upload usecase fails for files with non-ascii filenames
  • "would you like to allow logging" dialog shouldn’t appear on first launch
  • on rotatable devices, in image gallery, the displayed/cached image is smaller than screen size (shouldn’t happen)
  • app should ask for permissions in advance on first launch
  • app should support multiple third-party app associations for a given file type (e.g multiple pdf viewers)
  • music/video stops when screen fades out
  • user gets a "not enough room to write file" message when trying to open a file that’s already open in docs2go
  • uploading file changes for file stored in folder with non-ASCII characters can result in creation of damaged folder name with contents of a new file
  • user interface rotation glitches on some screens
  • BES permissions problems
  • resolve some chronic upload retry issues and related UI glitches
  • file browser lagginess when dealing with non-ASCII characters in file names

You can pick up this latest version at this link or read more about it in their forums.

    See where the download difference is now. Servicing a download via the forum, not through std download URL

  5. I have always had trouble with Dropbox on my torch. I hope this works.
