    Text file upload from iPad to Dropbox?

    Please tell me it's possible to do something as simple as uploading a text/note file from iPad to Dropbox.

    If it is possible(and I have my doubts) how is it accomplished and why does someone experienced with computer use have to even ask this question?

    Thanks

    That is funny.
    My iPad Dropbox app uploads files to DropBox.

    Did you not notice the little + (plus sign) bottom left?

    Maybe my version of the app needs updated but my version only supports upload of videos or photos

    Same here

    I have the latest version of Dropbox, and I cannot upload text or doc files either, only pics or videos. I hope this gets resolved soon, I'd really like to be able to pull text and xls files from my Dropbox, and then edit them and upload them back from my Ipad.

    Convert you texts and docs to PDF. Using Goodreader and/or iAnnotate the files make the trip onto and off the iPad to DropBox. GoodReader can suck them down as zipped or plain docs.

    Zip anything you may have a problem with.

    DocsToGo has a link to DropBox feature for any document it handles.

    Why not use the free evernote app and make a new note, or cut and paste one? Just syncs automatically with cloud storage and any other machine you may have.
