    I am using an iPad and the app DropBox. I uploaded a file from the iPad to DropBox and want to delete it using the iPad. There is no method in the app to do this that I can find.

    In dropbox, when you have your list of files open, press the edit button that appears above them, it will then put minus symbols next to all of the files, press that symbol to delete the file that you want to delete.

    Or, swipe from left to right on the file itself and a delete option will pop up on the right.

    I use Evernote a lot, but haven't used dropbox yet. I think it's more for files then info like Evernote is.

    I love dropbox. I have been using it for years. It is a program that you install on any computer/operating system you have and it keeps them all in sync. It puts a folder on your computer and anything you put into the folder is auto synced to an online server and then synced to any computer with your dropbox account.

    It is handy on the iPad because you have all of your files with you where you go. If you don't have 3G on your iPad (I don't), then you can save your favorite files.

    The best part is that it makes syncing things like notes really easy. I can take notes on my iPad, iPhone, or computer and keep them all in sync.

    I certainly do not work for Dropbox, but I am a big fan because they have made my life much easier. Just my 2 cents.
