You want to select the Spaces option. Once selected within the bottom left hand corner you should see a + icon.

After clicking you will be asked to add files. It is important to remember that you must add at least 1 file to create the space.

After selecting your file the Space will be made with the selected files found within it.

Once you select that icon a message will come up where you are required to confirm the deletion. Thats how you can go ahead and Delete a Space.

IS THE ANDROID APP COMPATIBLE WITH THE ANDROID TABLET?

The answer is Yes, however it will be like a scaled up version of the phone app. In the future, we may do tablet specific layouts but for not it will be the same thing you see on your Android phone.

 

FEATURES MISSING ON THE ANDROID APPLICATION

Although the Android application is very accessible, unfortunately it doesn't provide all of the features of the web application. Some of the features that aren't included within the app are:

  • You don’t have the ability to approve files
  • No ability to send in a private setting
  • No ability to add an access code to a Space
  • No ability to search by Space name other then scrolling down
  • No ability to look at the Spaces overview of activity
  • On your individual Space, can’t upload Spaces background image

WHY DOESN'T THE PHONE APP HAVE ALL OF THE SAME FEATURES AS THE WEBSITE?

With it being a phone application unfortunately it is limited to the features we can implement at this time. However we're currently working on integrating more features.
