On the dropbox app for iOS I do love the auto upload feature for camera pics but I dislike how it dumps all pics from multiple devices into the 'camera upload' folder.  I have an iphone and ipad, so I would like a the uploads to go into the camera upload folder but into individual folders:

 

iPhone: camera upload->iphone

iPad: camera upload->ipad

 

Since the native dropbox cannot do this yet is there another one that can?

That looks interesting but the lack of a universal app is annoying.

Flickr, by far the best photo/video service ever.

Except I use dropbox for much more than picture storage.  I also don't need another online storage account.

Box.net, but then I use several cloud services. Multi-redundancy.

You are asking for a third-party Dropbox client.
Do such things even exist, and would Dropbox even allow it?

As for Dropbox alternatives, use "Copy"

Just as an update.  I use an app, photosync, to quickly send pics back and forth from my ios device to my pc.  I realized that it also has the ability to sync to dropbox and can also sync to any folder within my dropbox account.

 

It doesn't have as great as an interface as boxie but I think it works better than it.
