Dropbox for BlackBerry goes into limited beta

By Bla1ze on 31 Jul 2010 12:30 am EDT

Well, we've seen it arrive on practically every other platform before BlackBerry but, either way it is here now. Dropbox, the online storage solution which offers users 2GB of space for free has just gone live with their beta application for BlackBerry. You'll have to act fast though, the forums posting says 500 users and no one knows how many have already taken that count down. Check it out and report back in the comments. My report, it's fast and works great. As a Dropbox user, certainly glad to see it arrive. PS: You'll need to login to your dropbox account.



Thanks! I was in time to get a copy.


but what's the reason they choose the S1 and 9000 for display?


Just got it! Hopefully it allows you to store the Dropbox folder on the SD card, phone memory will just get messy.


Finally!!! Testing it :D!


Damnit! I missed it. >:(
I really can't wait for this to be made public!


I've been waiting for them to get on this, glad to see it in beta stages!


Whew! Guess I barely made it!


Wonder how long it will take someone to extract the .cod and put it out there.


It still seems to be open...


Gah, I was too late :(


Definitely a beta. Very limited. GREAT UI though. Very similar to using the desktop or iPhone versions. Really sleek. This is looking to be a very nice app once they get some more work into it.


Guess I have to sleep with one eye closed and the other on Crackberry all the time to get in on these things!


thats exactly why i bookmarked this site and check in wheneva i can


Made a thread in the forums with some screenshots and some minor details.


DropBox is already full and seem like it is not accepting new users as of 12:57 AM on 7/31/2010. :(


I just got through. Following the links, it seems that a new number of 1000 slots are available. Get to it folks! 0130 PST 31Jul2010


there seems to be more slots open, i was able to download and be a beta user

try again!!


It's 4:52am EST & I got accepted :)


Well, it seems to work well. Not sure how fast it's going to be over 3G. Over WiFi it works pretty good. Simple interface, easy to use. Overall, good app.


I got it guess I'm one of 1000


"Please Note: This forums build currently only works with OS 5.0"

What about us poor souls who stick to official releases? I'm stuck on 4.6 for my Bold 9000 indefinitely :P


Point your Blackberry's Browser at this URL to download Dropbox for Blackberry:

it worked for me...

Btw... DB on BB seems to be really GOOOOD.


juste dl on my 9700...niccceeeeeeeee :-)


working good so far on my 9700. Thanks! :D


Just tried to sign up and it worked.


Working good on my BB.

This seems to work better than photobucket and much faster.

Over WiFi this thing zips :)


Checked it at 7/31 7:40AM Eastern Time


Seem to be just a little late. All filled up. Hate when I sleep in too long on Saturday.


I was able to get in this morning around 7:30 am Eastern... Now to see if I'll actually use this.


OMG this was posted 30 seconds ago and they already have 1000 users. The beta is closed :(


I hate waking up to good news to have it squashed..... already full.


want to be a betauser of this app



this linf is working for downloading the app:

and if you want to try dropbox and get a special bonus, use this:


It will allow you to download the application, but not allow you to log in. Basically rendering it useless. Wouldn't waste your time.

It is not recognizing my email/password.


10:00 am EST

Downloaded just fine. I'd never heard of this program, so I downloaded it on my desktop and set up an account.

Tried to log in on the 8900, it says it "Couldn't find a user with this email/password combination."

Odd. But really neat cloud program, will give it a try once I get it working.


The beta is full! I will be watching for the app to go GA.


I downloaded it off of and it won't let me login. Looks like I need to have signed up for the actual beta prog in order to get it working (as opposed to simply downloading the app and logging in) :-(


Since I went to bed at a decent time I didn't see this announcement.


Dropbox is giving the first 1000 people to signup early access to the Dropbox Blackberry app.


nobody has a work-a-round yet???


"We're sorry... but the beta is full."



If I am missing something, someone let me know. Unless they are planning serious upgrade limits for the free version, I wouldn't waste my time.

2GB is nothing. My 9700 came with a 2GB SDcard that I immediately tossed away for an 8GB. Just to upgrade to a 16BG SDcard right after that. And that is just the SDcard. lol.

I don't think 2GB is enough for all of the information that could be on someone's device. Am I wrong?


Crap...I missed out on the beta. I hope this will do what I hope it will do. It will make running my business from my BlackBerry a full reality. FTW!!!!


drop me a copy in my box


How do you upload files other than photos? Weird


it's seriously lacking MANY features. Not surprised...


There is an app in BlackBerry App. World... The same 2GB of free storage, and is Mac and PC Compatible.


so, you have a piece of software on your system that claims it only shares a specific folder. let's assume it does. but what if it is compromised? being on your system already what else it could share with an adversary??


It looks like the beta is open again. I was just able to sign up. So try to get while you still can :)


^^ Is correct! I just signed up and got in! Thanks, cjreinhart!


.. the beta is taking registrations again...


Beta is still open - sez its for next 4000.

Downloaded and installed OK on OS5 Curve 8900. Having run-time errors - "exception". Pulling battery now to see if that helps.

Anyone have any problems running this ?


I got in it's really cool this Dropbox app :D
