    I think Dropbox is losing ground because storage is commoditized. Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon Clouddrive.

    You can try to win by having a superior UX experience, or at least be something different. WeTransfer is an example of wildly successful filesharing by just adding a great (design) experience.

    In this redesign, Dropbox is letting their brand to the speaking. I wish they would've worked harder on letting the content of my drive do the speaking. Google Photos is an amazingly nice product. I would like to see more products like that instead of these crazy redesigns.

      Until their competitors have something similar to Smartsync, I'm staying put. Sadly.

      Agree with you with the commoditization issue. When the OS you use to get your stuff done already has a cloud storage to offer, you "probably" would only use other service providers if that cloud storage gets full (if it gets)
