    Files in Dropbox transfer via iTunes file sharing

    I used iTunes file sharing today for first time. Worked great with many Apps. But Dropbox didn't show up as an App in the list. Can one transfer files from Dropbox via iTunes or must you just use Dropbox on both the computer & the iPad? If I want to transfer files from Dropbox to my computer/mothership do I have to get "Goodreader" or something similar?

    Load Dropbox on the PC and you will see any files that you have stored there. I don't believe that you can use Dropbox via iTunes.

    Yeah, what's cool about Dropbox is, once you've installed it on your PC, you'll be able to access it as if it was a Windows Explorer file folder.

    So, you can drag and drop to/from it with ease. You can download stuff off the internet directly into it. You also can set up shortcuts so that all your stuff is saved right to the Dropbox folder (versus to My Documents, for example). It can be completely invisible, you saving stuff in the cloud...

    Yeah it's nice but I'm still uneasy about not having the files local, I guess I'm a bit old school. It's time to change

    If you make the files favourites then it will keep local copies on each device and just sync when changes are made.
