Folder Downloader is a very simple, free Android app that lets you download entire folders from your Dropbox account.

Get it on Google Play

How It Works

  1. Browse through your Dropbox folders
  2. Long-press on the folder you want to download, select “Download folder to…” – or use the “Download all to…” button
  3. Browse your Android’s device local storage, and tap on the “Select” button to start the download

Main Features

  • Ability to create new folders on the local storage on the fly, so you don’t need to use a separate file manager
  • Supports both internal and SD card storage (defaults to device-defined external storage, navigate up to find other storage options)
  • Downloads performed in background via an Android Service, so you don’t have to keep the app running
  • Ability to retry failed downloads from the report screen
  • Authentication performed via OAuth and Dropbox’s official API, so the app CANNOT read your Dropbox password
  • No ads


  • Only one download job is performed at a time, subsequent jobs are queued and executed as soon as the previous are completed
  • You’ll need a Dropbox account to use this app, but the Dropbox app is optional
