DropBox infinite loop on iPhone running 15.4

Voodoo Pad no longer works on my iPhone running 15.4. As soon as I start it up, I get a pop up window saying "DropBox Session Ended." "Do you want to relink?"

I can't click on the Cancel or Relink buttons because the window flashes constantly.

Quoting the app and restarting has the same problem. Also deleting the app and reinstalling has the same problem. This really degrades the value of Voodoo Pad.

    I know you said you get the same problem on delete/reinstalling the app but I just keep doing so until I stop getting the relink infinite loop.

    Then I go into iPad settings and turn off display auto lock, open VP and go into settings (do not leave the settings screen without turning off dropbox linking, the files will remain on your device). In VP settings adjust settings as you want and then link dropbox and full sync. Verify that the full sync has happened by checking with the log and full sync again until no updates in the log.

    Then and only then turn off dropbox linking. Do not let anything interrupt the sync until full, do not let the screen time out, do not leave the settings screen, do not use another app and make sure your connection is good. You can monitor the sync in the log screen and just let it roll until done. Then double check by full sync again.

    Finally, TURN OFF DROPBOX LINKING. If you need to update it might work if you repeat the same procedure inside VP settings without ever leaving VP settings, but under no circumstances leave VP settings with linking turned on.
