I can't find the Dropbox app on my iOS device—what happened?

If you have downloaded the Dropbox app on your iPhone or iPad, but suddenly find that it's missing, it was most likely moved into a folder on your device.

To locate the Dropbox app, or any other app on your device, you can use Apple's Spotlight search feature:

  1. Swipe down on the home screen, and search for "Dropbox"
  2. You'll be shown a list of results—if the app is in a folder, the name of the folder will appear to the right of the app
