Dropbox fixes iOS 8 issue that prevented Carousel from properly backing up media

The Dropbox team has quickly addressed an issue that prevented Dropbox and Carousel from properly backing up photos and videos in iOS 8.

After initial teething issues with the first fix that created duplicates of the backed up media and caused random app crashes, the team tweeted earlier today that a second update should resolve those problems and urged users to update.

Yesterday we pointed out this issue that may determine if people carry out the iOS upgrade or not, and while this issue has been addressed, there are still a couple of other problems users must consider before making the jump.

Nick Fletcher of Realmac Software— the company behind productivity app Clear explains in his blog post "As OS X Yosemite is still pre-release (and not yet available) upgrading to iCloud Drive will prevent you from syncing with Clear for Mac until both OS X Yosemite is released and you upgrade to OS X Yosemite," he wrote. "Developers cannot work around the choice made when upgrading to iOS 8, so please make sure you pay close attention to the iCloud Drive screen shown after you update to iOS 8."

And finally, some third party HealthKit apps have been pulled from the Apple store due to some undisclosed bugs with iOS 8.
