Revisions 1.1

An easy to use Mac OS X application that can connect with your Dropbox account and enables you to restore old versions of files.
Dropbox, the popular cloud storage service, automatically stores each version of your files, including the deleted ones, for 30 days. In addition, if the “packrat” function is activated (it is available as a separate add-on that can be purchased by anyone with a Dropbox Pro account), the history and file versions are kept indefinitely.

Revisions is an easy to use Mac app that offers you the possibility to access the file versions in a clean, organized, and user friendly environment. To actually use the application, you must first connect to your Dropbox account and authorize the app.

Effortlessly revise your Dropbox activity and find files by applying various filters

For your convenience, Revisions comes both with a straightforward introduction, and a setup assistant designed to help you integrate your Dropbox account, and make a sum of necessary adjustments: you must provide the account type, choose the settings you want the app to remember between sessions, and how you want to view file details.

When all this is over, Revisions scans your account and displays your files in chronological order: both the ones that have been edited in the past 30 days, and the ones that cannot be restored anymore. To help you find specific files, Revisions includes a search bar, but you can also filter items by source folder, or creation / modification / deletion date.

User friendly solution for reviewing and restoring Dropbox file versions without going through a web browser

By default, the file versions stored in your Dropbox account can be visualized and managed via the app’s web interface. Revisions offers you the possibility download and restore a certain file version via an intuitive desktop application.

Noteworthy is that, within the Dropbox web interface, you can see file versions only for a specific item at a time. The Revisions app allows you to see all the recently modified documents, enables you to identify all the files modified within a specific time frame, that have a similar name, and so on.

What's New in This Release:
  • Revisions 1.1 has a significantly improved user interface: File edits are now grouped together to make it easier to get an overview of the activity in your Dropbox. We have also made it possible to view file changes ("diffs") for a wide variety of file types. The update additionally includes many other minor improvements and bug fixes.
  • Note: Unfortunately, the new version does not support searching edits by filename or edit type. We will be rewriting this feature and putting it back in for a later version of the app, but for now, if this is a crucial feature to you, you may want to skip this version. In case you already updated and would like to go back, visit our website to find out how, or contact us by sending us an email or mentioning us in a tweet!
