    I've seen where people have been using Pages and Dropbox together, but on the Pages page in the app store, all the reviews say they need to integrate Dropbox functionality.
    So I have to ask: how are you guys saving your Pages documents to Dropbox and how are you getting them from Dropbox to Pages?
    Just wanted to make sure everything is all good before I go and buy it.

    I have Pages and a free Dropbox subscription. Pages allows docs to be sent to WebDEV but doesn't show Dropbox as a destination. After some checking around I found DropDEV, a service that connects a WebDEV server to your Dropbox account. You need your Dropbox login info to set it up--took about 30 seconds to do it. Now in Pages I just choose Send to WebDEV and few seconds later the file is in my Dropbox. The DropDEV thing is free for now (up to 2 gigs usage); I don't know if the company will soon be asking me to subscribe or not. If so it'll be about US $3 a month, not bad if you really need that service.

    Oh, and you asked about importing to Pages from Dropbox. It works both ways without a hitch. In Pages press the download button and choose WebDEV as the source. A popup shows your Dropbox contents, select what you want and voila! Slick!

    One thing to keep in mind is, that the DropDEV service always costs 1/3 of the Dropbox service. So if your Dropbox is free, DropDEV is free, but if you pay for Dropbox, you will also have to pay for DropDEV.

    Can you give me a link to dropdev? I googled it and all I found was a Linux development page.

    Oh, I would like to apologize for the confusion.

    The service in question is called DropDAV, that's why it didn't show up in the search.
    Anyway, here is the link:
    https://dropdav.com/

    Thanks! I found it though.
    Got it all set up and bought Pages and sent a test document to my Dropbox. Works like a dream. Now I just need my wireless keyboard.

    In another thread I posted that I got my Apple wireless keyboard via craigslist. Even in my relatively small metro region there were two for sale, both new with manuals and both US $55.
