Known issues on Android

Dropbox SDK requires API Level 19 (Kitkat - 4.4) or above

You might have to modify the minSdkVersion entry in your App_Resources/Android/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-sdk
android:minSdkVersion="19"
...

The number of method references in a .dex file cannot exceed 64K.

This can be solved by adding multiDexEnabled true to your app/App_Resources/Android/app.gradle

android {  
defaultConfig {
applicationId = "__PACKAGE__"
multiDexEnabled true
generatedDensities = []
}
aaptOptions {
additionalParameters "--no-version-vectors"
}
}
