Upload/Select Multiple Files in Android Froyo 2.2 to Dropbox

Posted by admin on July 1, 2011 at 1:16 pm.

I was looking for a solution to easily get photos off my phone and into Dropbox. Ideally they would make it so you could setup any folder on your Android phone to sync with a Dropbox folder. This will probably happen sooner or later but as far as I know is not currently available.

At the very least I was looking to be able to select multiple files within Gallery or Astro File Manager and then just click the Share button and then pick Dropbox. Thus I could select all the files on my phone and Share them to Dropbox. However, I was shocked to discover that the default Gallery app in Android 2.2 does not have multiple select. iOS has had this for a long time. Pretty frustrating. Worse there has been some silly delay releasing Gingerbread 2.3 and so I am stuck with Froyo 2.2 until they do that (I am not interested in messing around with XDA Roms).

Solution

Install QuickPic - http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2011/05/quickpic-is-a-fast-free-gallery-replacement-for-android/ - it has multiple select and then you can Share to Dropbox all of the files you multi-selected.
