    I would like to know how I can open up files in my drop box from my ipad. It keeps saying it opens all files I support. If I don't support the files I download, then what do I need to do to be able to support them? Thanks.

    Hi, Barbara, welcome to iPF!

    Did you already install the Dropbox app on your iPad? Here's the link:

    https://itunes.apple.com/at/app/dropbox/id327630330?l=en&mt=8

    Everything you have to do then (after logging in) is tap the file you want to view (in the app), and the app will show it.
