    Backup via iTunes and do a DFU restore. This teds to fix most software issues.

    Yeah it synced with multiple desktops but this didn't give any issue previously. So thats not it...
    This started tobhappen when I added alot of pictures to my camera roll.

    Dfu restore? Whats that? You mean a full restore? That sounds like alot of hassle just to get one app back working. To me it sounds like drobox f up.

    Dropbox is working fine for me and scads of other folks. And yes a DFU restore is a hassle but so is a crashing app. It could be very well be something with the amount of files but for that you'll need to wait for DropBox to update their app.

    Have you tried contacting DropBox?

    The reason I asked is that there may be a corrupt file on which the iOS app is choking.

    Move all of the photos out of Dropbox on one of the computers and see if the app stops crashing. If it does, start moving them back in a bit at a time. This is to find the potentially offending file.
