    Default Dropbox Push Notifications?

    Just wondering—I've got notifications set up for my Dropbox, but nothing ever shows up in my lock screen or as banners...do new uploads not produce a notification?

    Anyone? It would be great to get a banner/badge alerting me to new files that are added to my dropbox, but it never happens. If it's not for new files, what are notifications in Dropbox for??

    I've never see it. I wonder if the notifications are for if SOMEONE else 'drops' you a file in your Dropbox?

    Have you asked someone to drop you a file to see what happens?

    Where is the setting for that on the iPhone? I cant even find the setting in the Dropbox app itself. I've never even thought to use such a feature with Dropbox. I suppose I'm in agreement with Navi is regard to what Dropbox push notifications would be used for.

    Settings>Notifications>Dropbox. I didn't realize other people could put things in my dropbox—how's that work? A shared folder?

    Of course, I looked there. It is the first place I checked. I have Dropbox version 1.5.7 on both my iPhone 4S and my iPad 2 and there is no setting for it there or in the app itself.

    Weird, I have 1.5.7 and it's in Notification Center:



    Not sure why it wouldn't show in yours. And it's not just listed in the "Not in Notification Center" list I assume?
