    Since Boxie is now defunct and about to be withdrawn from the App Store, can anyone recommend an alternative?

    Specifically, an iPhone app capable of Dropbox file management tasks including:

    - moving files between folders
    - renaming files
    - restoring deleted file versions
    - sending files via email as attachments (not as links)

    Readdle Documents can certainly do the renaming but I don't think it can do the other tasks above. Any suggestions?

    Hey there! Documents 5 can do all tasks above, but not restoring deleted file versions. It's free and suports iCloud Drive and Document picker now:)

    I have the exact same question. Is there any alternative that automatically syncs files from Dropbox onto your iPhone, as on a Mac? I think it is a brilliant idea to have your whole dropbox available on your phone.

    Try Documents 5 https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/documents-5-fast-pdf-reader/id364901807?mt=8

    Please note, your documents sync when you are on-line.

    Thanks! I was a big fan of Readdle's products. I used to jot notes with the original PDF Expert until the new version was out.
    Does Documents 5 support background synchronisation? Such that the app fetches for changes onDdropbox server and downloads the data automatically without launching the app?
