How’s Dropbox sync work?

I’ve just learned of inkbook 3 and sounds like it’ll sync reading place, highlights and notes via Dropbox between iOS app and ereader. Is that correct? Does it work well?

In older devices Dropbox stopped working because Dropbox is making updates to its system but the older Pocketbooks don't get updates.

New Pocketbooks are Touch HD, Touch HD 2, and Inkpad 3. Dropbox works on them.

Dropbox is working fine to me in my Inkpad 3, but it only syncs the books, not notes o reading position.

That must be done with PocketBook Cloud Sync (and works fine to me).

Syncing Notes is officially not possible with PocketBook Cloud and never was, so it does not and never did work for you.
You should not spread false news, bad enough that PocketBooks Marketing papers do, to precent people from wasting there time and money.

Quoting myself:

Dropbox is working fine to me in my Inkpad 3, but it only syncs the books, not notes o reading position.

Now remarking:

Dropbox is working fine to me in my Inkpad 3, but it only syncs the books, not notes o reading position.

I think in my text it is crystal clear that:
  1. Dropbox ONLY syncs books
  2. Dropbox do NOT syncs notes
  3. Dropbox do NOT sync reading position

If I follow the entire chain of messages, yes, it can be misunderstand (or wrong written by my part) that Pocketbook Cloud Sync will sync annotations and highlights.

Yes, as far as I remember, devices only sync reading position.

Here to clear some confusions. Pocketbook sync will ONLY sync notes and annotations between android app and web reader; but NOT eink devices. However reading progress WILL sync between android app, eink readers and web reader

Good to know, thanks for clarifying. I was looking at the Pocketbook android app this afternoon, for other reasons, and thinking it had some nice functionality. Then I noticed the Inkpad 3 on their site and thought "Hmmm, despite my recently getting soured on e-ink devices (due to a subpar experience with a Kobo Clara), maybe I should reconsider?" If I could have a premium e-ink device, plus an android app that runs well on my phone, and a PC browser-based app, all of which would sync books, notes and all details to a single cloud, that would be quite an advantage and I'd consider it seriously.

However, the flies in the ointment are: (1) I still see a fair number of issues and user dissatisfaction reported here in MobileRead about the Inkpad 3 hardware and software, and (2) This issue about the software and only part of the annotations data syncing to their cloud. Once again, this issue underscores the extremely limited software support and functionality for e-ink devices, and the lack of seamless interop between e-ink hardware and other platforms like android, pc, and ios. Kinda' confirms my inclination to avoid e-ink and stick with android, for mobile reading.

If it is worth something, currently I'm using FBreader (from fbreader.org -I think there are some other versions). No in a Pocketbook.

I said, I'm using FBReader in: iPhone, iPad, Note 9, Galaxy Tab 3 (the new one), iMac, and Boox POKE PRO (with Android). It more or less syncs positions well (fails a lot in Boox) and syncs notes across all devices (well, macOS version does not have support for that). It syncs books as well.

Other alternative is Google Play Books, that if it is not available in a device, you can use in the navigator and syncs everything. However, I've not tested the browser version inside a ebook (I assume it won't work).

That's true, Google Play books is currently the only alternative I have that syncs across all Android devices and my PC, including notes, positions, everything. Tried Pocketbook and liked the Android app a lot, but their Pocketbook Cloud app which you can access by PC is very unreliable, wouldn't even load some of my larger ebooks.

Kindle has it all. Go for it. It's great.
The only reason it was not for me was missing text-to-speech.

Yes, unfortunately everything they implement themselves is a complete mess (browser-reader, dropbox-sync, ...). Therefore I have no hopes for the notes-syncing-functionality when it is finally there after years of delay.
