DropBox anyone?

Ok.  So the PB has been out almost 3 months.  We have seen some advances, mostly in games and some utilities that had to make up for RIM not fully developing the PB.  One of the most requested items is DropBox.  Business workflows have adopted the use of DropBox.  These workflows are at a crawl due to the lack of DB for the PB.  How much longer do we have to wait?  I used ALL of my votes to help the effort along, but c'mon!!!!!  Seriously????  I would have thought RIM would have talked/negotiated with DB PRIOR to the PB release.

 

C'MON DropBox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: DropBox anyone?

Check out BlueBox, in AppWorld on your Playbook, for access to your DropBox account.

Works great for me.

Re: DropBox anyone?

I wouldn't recommend it if experienced problems with it, or at least I would note what they are. Works good for me.

 

Also, I have NOT used "Files and Folders" app, in the newest category of AppWorld, but it is said to support Dropbox.

 

Good luck.

Re: DropBox anyone?

I downloaded the BlueBox app and created the DropBox account.  The workflow is messy.  I am doing this for my wife who is not very patient with technology.  I don't want to confuse her.  WIth my Xoom and the DropBox native app, I have the option to File>Send an open "doc" to my DropBox folder.  This makes the whole process a "two touch" workflow.  On the PB with BB, it takes several "touches" to do the same thing.  I showed my wife and she did not want to change her current workflow.

Re: DropBox anyone?

Until DropBox drops a Playbook app... she won't touch the screen a few more clicks?

Re: DropBox anyone?

It's a bit more complicated than that.  I "watered it down" for simplicity.  The lack of folders in the PB also adds to the issues of the workflow.
