Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-9055) dropbox is uploading pictures on Android without our permission
Date Mon, 15 Jun 2015 22:43:01 GMT


Joe Bowser resolved CB-9055.
    Resolution: Won't Fix

We save the image to the app's cache, which is located in the public storage.  Your dropbox
is aggressively saving everything every app is storing in the cache, which it's not supposed
to, and there's nothing that we can do about this, since we need to take the data and store
it somewhere so we can manipulate it.

if option saveToPhotoAlbum is false
> if you set dropbox to automatically upload pictures it also pics up the pictures from
this plugin, even before it is saved to the gallery.
> when you get the preview screen, even if you press cancel/decline/delete or whatever
the button says the picture is already in your dropbox account.
