    Hi,
    Is it possible to download/access music files from Dropbox without an Internet connection just like it is possible to view photos and documents from dropbox without Internet connection by downloading them.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Mihir

    No, Dropbox is an online storage function which, by it's very nature, requires you to access the Internet to access it.

    However, you can Favorite files (this includes videos and songs) within the Dropbox app, which will save them for offline access. You can sync up to 2 GB of data in your Favorites.

    Hope this helps.

    No, sorry.

    The only way to backup apps you get from the App Store is via iTunes. You hook up the iPad and then right click on it's line (on the left side). Select "backup" and iTunes will take care of the rest.
