View all your Dropbox activity, past and present. Rewind if necessary.

Revisions lets you see all file edits in your Dropbox, and restore old versions of files and entire folders with the click of a button. In essence, this is "track changes" and "undo" functionality for your entire Dropbox! For instance, you can...

  • check what files your coworker changed over the weekend, and investigate exactly what in those files was changed

  • restore the contents of a shared folder after your colleague deleted a large bunch of files to make room in his or her own Dropbox, inadvertently deleting your copies of the files in the process

  • keep track of what files you or your team worked on in any given week, and see exactly what you accomplished

    Basically, Revisions gives you effortless version control for your Dropbox. The app lives in your menu bar so is always at your fingertips when you need it.

    Revisions is compatible with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and later, but was designed and optimized for OS X 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite.

    Under the hood, Revisions relies on functionality already built into Dropbox: For all accounts (including free accounts), Dropbox stores all versions of all your files for the past 30 days. Users with Extended Version History get one year of history, while Dropbox for Business users (and legacy 'packrat' users) have unlimited history. Revisions allows you to access and make use of all this data of yours with an intuitive interface.

    Revisions lets you use a variety of external apps to show the details of individual file edits: Kaleidoscope, Changes, Araxis Merge, BBEdit, and TextWrangler are natively supported, and others (such as FileMerge) can be connected via a custom script. Each of these apps can show the detailed edits (inserts, deletions, and modifications) made to text files. Some can also highlight edits made in image files.

    The basic version of the app is free, with all of the functionality described above. The premium version (available via in-app purchase) adds the ability to show the identity of the editing user and to ignore files or folders based on filename or extension, and includes priority support. I am actively working on adding further power-user features to the premium package.

    Please visit for more information.

    NOTE: For users with lots and lots of files on Dropbox (many tens of thousands of files, or more), the initial indexing operation can be time-consuming and use a lot of resources. Version 2.1 of the app (to be released soon) will offer a much better initial experience in these cases. If you are such a user, you may want to consider waiting for version 2.1. If you'd like me to notify you when the new version is available, drop me an email or send me a tweet! :)

    I am deeply committed to customer satisfaction. If you are experiencing any problems whatsoever with the software, please email or tweet, or use the in-app support form, and I will do what I can to help you out. I will be prompt in releasing bug fixes and am looking forward to hearing your suggestions for improvements and new features. Do not hesitate to contact me at:

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
