Re: BLUE Box

Hey MdeCN,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

I would suggest contacting Dropbox for further assistance.  Their email is support@dropbox.com

 

Let me know if you have any more questions. 

 

Cheers

Re: BLUE Box

Since BlueBox no longer works on the Playbook, I'd advise you to sideload the DropBox android app. This is the solution I chose for myself. An alternate solution would be to use the DropBox web interface.

 

You can find instructions on sideloading here: http://crackberry.com/sideload-apps-your-blackberry-using-google-chrome

The extension for Google Chrome or Chromium is here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/bb10-playbook-app-manager/kmbaalodpmjjhpobkgljnelbpblnikkp...

 

The Android DropBox app converted to BAR for the playbook can be found on the site http://goodereader.com/ --- specifically at: http://apps.goodereader.com/playbook/playbook-android-apps/?did=176

 

I think that it is notable that a BlackBerry Technical Advisor is unable to provide a suitable solution to your problem, when a fairly straightforward solution exists.

Re: BLUE Box

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm going to try the second one, it seems simpler to do than the first.

Re: BLUE Box

Greetings everyone, I am new in the wondrous world of Blackberry Playbook. :smileyhappy:

I have read the Blue Box being the best solution to sync my Drop Box items. Wish to try it however it does not appear in the App World no matter what keywords I try.

Any idea why is that? 

Thanks in advance!

 

Cheers

If it is no longer supported maybe it's been withdrawn.

 

Check out message 3 by Gunpowder above in this thread. 

 

Also try "Box" app in blackberry world.
