Criticism

  • I would not recommend hosting a static site on Dropbox. It's possible but it's not the intention and is not well-supported. GitHub Pages is a better free option Kylewm.com 12:57, 18 September 2014 (PDT)
  • In 2015-12, Dropbox announced they were shutting down two apps they maintain—email app Mailbox (in 2016-02) and photo app Carousel (2016-03). This raises questions about the longevity of other Dropbox-provided services.
