    Is anyone else using Polaris? It seems to retain formatting very well. I have connected the app to my Dropbox account and can retrieve files from there easily but, for the life of me, cannot see how to get it back to Dropbox when I have finished editing. I just see "save" or "save as" to my iPad. What am I missing, please?

    At first I did not understand the manual when it comes to uploading to Dropbox but I now get it! You have to do it from your Dropbox app, not from Polaris, which is a bit strange but it works!

    Seems awkward.

    DropBox has API's to allow third party apps direct access. Heck, third party access is "the feature" that makes DropBox so popular. I wonder why they didn't use them.

    True, but I was not quite accurate. Forgot how to do it again! It is SO easy in Quick Office! You have to upload by accessing Dropbox from the Polaris app.

    Then you are saying that the feature is just not easy to find, as opposed to forcing you to leave the app?

    I am saying that I am too old to remember how to navigate the app! I think it would become easy if I were to keep using it. Seriously though, I think it could be made easier.

    :D I have a few, rarely used, apps like that. And yes, I think they could be better designed.
