    Default Dropbox... background uploading???

    Is there ANY to allow Dropbox to upload files (such as instant photo uploading) in the background. It's almost moot to even have that feature on the iOS version, as it seems it will only upload if the app is the one running in the foreground. As soon as you leave the app (or a short time after), it stops uploading.

    I with the iOS version of Dropbox worked like the Android one, where it would just upload even in background. Large files, I can understand keeping that as wifi. But Apple needs to allow a bit more freedom for background processes. I know they are trying to keep battery life in check but for something like the Dropbox instant upload feature, it's kinda silly.

    I could really use that feature too. Right now I'm doing a project that requires a lot of screen shots, and every now and again I have to leave my app, open dropbox and wait for uploads..... I'd rather just be able to keep taking the shots and when I was done they'd be there waiting for me on my computer.
