    You go to the AppStore and download the Dropbox app.

    The thing is, you can't just add songs to the iPod app, it is possible, if you are jailbroken, but if you aren't jailbroken, than you would need to use an alternative media player, as iPod synchronizes only with iTunes.

    I've got music in Dropbox but I'm not sure you can but I'm sure someone will correct me. I generally put it into iTunes to get the music.

    Goodreader is a great app in many regards, but being a media player is not one of them, it does play .mp3's and you can open music from Dropbox and import it into Goodreader. It's just that Goodreader has no libraries and it blocks the whole app when playing music, you can't browse Goodreader while it plays a .mp3. Not ideal.

    Finally bought goodreader! A perfect app for a lot of different files big or small. Me? I just used it for mastered music zip files and it worked where dropbox couldn't. I'm sure everyone will eventually have a reason to own this handy app.

    If you click on favorite icon against a file in Dropbox, it will be store locally so that you can access it without internet.

    Hey there,why can't I save the music files from Dropbox to my Ipad2?
    Eg.I have downloaded my favorite songs into my PC and copy the songs into Dropbox apparently when I open Dropbox I can play the songs but I can't save it into my local drive of ipad2.
    Beside that I have also installed Dropbox into my blackberry bold 9700,it's the same does not able to copy too...

    Your feedback highly appreciate....thanks.
