    hi guys

    am using dropbox and although the stock app views my word docs ok,
    there isnt a search function.

    anyone know of a good app that has this?

    thanks

    The standard Dropbox app does have a search function, which is located at dropbox folder overview at the top, it even appears when browsing through folders. The search is always at the top of the file/folder overview. I feel like we are talking about different apps here :confused:

    Edit:

    When opening Dropbox, this is how it looks like and it shows the search function on the top left corner. Perhaps you just haven't scrolled to the top of the file/folder overview?

    cheers
