Dropbox Experimental Android Forum Build -

Hey all!
We fixed a whole bunch of issues from the last forum build and are excited to share a new build with you!
What's new:
• Fixed bug where the app logs you out and shows login screen repeatedly
• Fixed uploads starting on Wi-Fi and continuing over your mobile connection when the Wi-Fi connection was lost
• Fixed a bunch of issues that resulted in not all photos and videos being uploaded
• Fixed files being renamed to the wrong time zone on the Galaxy Nexus
• Fixed bug where additional quota maxed out at 4.5GB instead of 5GB
• Squashed a bunch of other bugs and fixed numerous crashes
Dropbox can no longer be installed on an SD card
We know some of you like this feature, but unfortunately the app cannot function properly when installed on an SD card. Accounts often get unlinked due to how Android's Accounts and Sync feature works, and it's impossible for Camera Upload feature to function correctly. We've tried to keep the app as small as possible to make this transition a bit easier.
As a reminder, here's what's new in this release:
• Automatically uploads photos and videos in the background using Wi-Fi or data plan
• 500MB of free space on first photo uploaded automatically
• Upload files of any size (no more 180 MB limit!)
• Support for resuming file uploads when there are network issues
• Various performance improvements & bug fixes
During this beta period, we are also offering additional free space to test automatic uploading of photos and videos. For every 500MB of photos and videos automatically uploaded, you'll receive another 500MB space bonus, up to 5GB total (including the initial 500MB space). This space is not separate from 5GB given for uploading on our desktop clients. Uploading from either desktop clients or the Android app will count towards the same 5GB free space.
