Dropbox API changes & future plans for pocket

Dropbox disabled their old API. I am currently switching over to the new one. There should be an update soon...

Future app plans:

The app is beginning to show its age :(
Unfortunately at the moment I am pretty busy with my day job.
If I get the time I will rewrite it, but at this stage I only have time for maintenance on it... sorry.

 Thanks for the update -  maintenance that restores Pocket syncing with dropbox would be brilliant.  It's still one of the best password apps out there.  Any idea of timescales?  Thanks.

My desktop version 1.5 still syncs to drop box, but my phone now gets an error trying to connect to dropboc.  Is this the API issue?  Any update u can give on the timeline to make the fix would be a BIG help.  I do not want to find another app to manually enter all my daya from Picket.

Thanks for the info. Will certainly upgrade to pro version once the fix comes. This is one of my favorite apps.

Yes, thanks so much for giving us an update. I think the app is great, so just having the sync fixed is all I could wish for. Will do the pro key as I said when its updated.

Thank you, when this is done we all should buy the ad free version. Tim you might have never realized how good and well liked your app was till it stopped working.

Showing its age? I'm sure a Holo theme would be great but not at the expense of the its functionality. I selected this app because it's just the best available. I'd love other sync options like Drive but only if you also updated the PC app. Otherwise, it's perfect as is.

This is one of the most valuable apps on my phone(s), my tablet and desktops :)
I hope problems with DB api will be resolved soon, and without too much time spent.
Cheers,
Your registered user :)

As a paying customer, and since I have referred many users to your app... I hope that you might look at switching to Google Drive for sync, or add it as an option.
We don't care what it looks like, as long as it works...

Tim - This is the most used app on my phone and the best out there for pure, straightforward password/accounts/etc storage.   The dropbox feature is critical, so thank you for committing to fixing and maintaining it.  

Customers - Please purchase the PRO key to help support Tim and incentivize him for continued maintainance

Come on guys - it's just £1.22 for a PRO key, and about 95% of us haven't bought it? You all know this app is worth far more than that. If you're loving the app and didn't buy the PRO key yet, then either click on some of those ads or buy the key. Better still do both. And don't give me any of that nonsense about "I'll buy the pro key once it's updated". This is a terrific app, and there's nothing that comes close out there. You know it, or else you wouldn't all be jumping up and down begging for this update. So let's get rallying around Tim with some real hands-in-our-wallets support.

Tim, is there some way any of us can make a more substantial donation to help you afford to take some unpaid leave from your day-job? I'm sure there's more than a few of us out here who'd be happy to dig a bit deeper than £1.22 - I mean how many of us wouldn't gladly take you out for a slap-up meal to thank you for this app? So let's throw some hard cash at this problem. If just 20% of us users were to send Tim just £20 he'd be able to give up that day job and get stuck in to developing this app fully.

If we flood Tim with REAL support (the green stuff, rather than just words of encouragement) then I'm pretty sure we'd see that update coming a wee bit sooner. Anyone out there agree?

Yes, thanks for the update Tim.  I have both the PC and Android versions and have upgraded to PRO also.  As many others have stated, Pocket is one of my most used (and essential) apps and have never thought of it as “showing its age”.  It does what I need it to do and just need the Dropbox sync function to be restored.  Anxiously waiting!  Thanks.

Do you have any idea when you will be able to write an update Tim? I love your program. It is one of the most used on my phone. I like several others here would be willing to buy the Pro version if it will help to speed this update up.

Thanks for the update I echo what many have said below pocket is the best password app out there I don't care about showing its age I really hope you can restore sync to dropbox or add sync to google drive.
I'm a pro user and I use the desktop version too its an ace program and the sync breaking is killing me.
Thanks for anything you can do to fix this.

I just released the update... hopefully it is all fine now.
It should show up in the Play store shortly.
I added a few tweaks here and there too in the UI, but nothing major... a couple of assets for xhdpi and a holo theme for newer devices.
Let me know if you have any issues...
