I absolutely love the app – as someone who previously was against using the Camera Uploads feature, I am now more inclined than ever to use Dropbox to store all my photos.
That being said, my major issue with the app is primarily with the 'swipe-down-to-hide' UX. Given how the photo/video viewing experience is already touch sensitive, I find it incredibly irritating when I find myself hiding pictures more often than not.
The gesture involved with hiding is far too sensitive and given that 'swipe-up-to-share' is such a critical action, I think it would be more effective if they implemented a 'select-to-hide' action much like the one that already exists to delete the hidden photos permanently. It would also make a lot of sense as I often find myself wanting to batch hide entire sets of photos from the app.

I'd argue that while increased screen real-estate is defiantly a major catalyst to productivity, especially for programmers, there are a number of other factors that need to be taken into account.
Screen sizes larger than 27" (diagonal) are not necessarily for everyone. I've seen many cases where 30" displays can be counter productive to programers and designers alike. Aside from personal preference, setting matters too – with increased screen real estate comes the need for increased distance between the user and the display...which may not always be possible.
Refresh rate matters. Regardless of whether you are a programmer, designer, or gamer, using a television as opposed to a monitor is going to make a huge difference. The key reasoning is computer displays are primarily targeted at optimizing for an experience where the user is sitting very close to the display...the opposite is true with regards to television. While the author recognizes that 30Hz may result in poor or lag-ridden graphics performance, he fails to realize that such lag is not conducive to all users and is a matter of personal preference.
These displays are not exactly 4K. A true 4K image (4096x2160) has an aspect ratio of 1.9:1, while a true UHD image (3840x2160) is 1.78:1. You can read more about it here.
When it comes to advocating users to purchase a television for $500 when the industry is cranking out competitive computer displays at $700-$800 range, I'd defiantly tell them to go with the latter.
4K isn't for everyone – but if your spending the money, it's worth understanding the difference.
Private links are often secure enough for anything I would share via Dropbox.
I wouldn't expect many Dropbox users to pay for such a service primarily because only a percentage of the user base is subscribed to a premium storage plan.
You can adjust your notfication preferences under Settings.app -> Notification Center -> Jelly.
I agree with you though...from a user experience standpoint I immediately wished I had finer controls as to from who and how often I would get push notifications.
Quick question: I haven't checked out the code/plugin yet but do you know if it's compatible with App Store version of Sketch? The difference being the App Store version has a sandboxed environment.
No way, that's awesome! This must have changed since I last purchased a domain.
Their service is great and their platform robust – I was initially ambivalent to use a registrar I that wasn't based in the U.S. and I hadn't heard very much about but have had a great experience.
As a registrar, they definitely go out of their way to secure authorized reseller certifications for pretty much any common TLDs. I would also recommend purchasing .IO domains from them versus NIC.IO, what I presume to be the official registry.
If customer service is critical, I would suggest Hover. They are always available, have beautiful and simple dashboard interface and streamlined the domain management user experience. Definitely my suggestion for most DN community members looking for a domain registry. It's worth noting that they do not support certain TLDs such as .IO.
