Other Issues

Dropbox Authentication
Once successfully linked to a Dropbox account, no more password input is required to get access to the files in the linked Dropbox. Even if the password for this Dropbox account is changed on another system or via the Dropbox web site, presenting this new password is not required on any of the linked system nor do these systems have to be linked again. In case access to the Dropbox has to be withdrawn reliably (e.g. because a mobile device is lost), the device should be un-linked from the given Dropbox account via the Dropbox web site and thus be no longer allowed to access the data.

File Sync
Files stored on the mobile device are updated automatically whenever modified in the cloud. Some file attributes like the file size and modification date are used to detect any changes. In case a previously encrypted file is encrypted using a different key, the file will not be synchronized to the client. Reason is, that the content of the file remains unchanged, as well as the file's attributes and therefore a sync is not triggered.

Accepting EULA Crash
After installing SME and accepting the EULA, SME might crash once if and only if all available Cloud Service Providers are linked. Restarting the application resolves the problem and prevents future crashes. Reason for this issue is a bug in the iOS Code for WebView which can't be fixed by SME.
