    it’s annoying how restricted apple devices are, they will not be able to
    replace it for business use if they make it so difficult to just
    play/open/download/drag and drop a file

  6. Eric James says:

    Marlene you are brilliant.I had become so frustrated with my iPad2, not
    being able to drag and drop a range of files jpegs, pdf`s, word,mp3`s
    relating to a 3 day break at Historic Bath here in the UK.You have shown so
    easily how to achieve this and as a result I have not gone out and
    purchased an Android tablet to overcome this problem.The iPad can feel so
    restrictive (maybe Apples politics) but I really appreciate you and others
    like yourself who break down barriers for the greater benefit of people in
    my position.Keep up the good work.It is appreciated.Eric

    Marlene!! Need your help. . . I have photos that I tried to transfer
    through itunes to my ipad photo gallery. All items are .png’s . . . The
    issue is when transfered the transparency goes away. SO, I then I thought
    lets try drop box. This works and all items are now visible transparently
    in drop box. . . how can I get my 400 images from drop box to ipad photo
    gallery? Can I maintain folder structure too?

    Thanks for this video. Is there a way to transfer a file to the ipad via
    dropbox, but then transfer the file from the dropbox storage onto the local
    harddive of the ipad? I want to permanently keep the files on the ipad and
    free up cloud space. Where would the files show up then, in the video
    gallery of the ipad? Thanks!

  13. estariol217 says:

    Well I know you said starring it makes it available offline, but does that
    still take up space from the total dropbox limit? Ideally I’d want to view
    the videos without having to book up the dropbox app. The reason I am
    confused is because I am comparing it to viewing the files on the PC where
    the file will fully download to the folder, but stay in the dropbox folder
    until you move it to a local harddive folder.

  14. Marlene Hielema says:

    I guess you could copy and paste them to another document and then put in
    DB, but I don’t think that would be a high priority thing for most people.

    if i upload from my phone to dropbox , if i later delete it from the phone
    memory is it still reachable from other devices ? help please :o

  16. Joshua Fultz says:

    Selecting the video as a favorite worked for me. You just have to be sure
    it finishes downloading before turning off the wi-fi connection. There is a
    star tab at the bottom where you can see the status of the download.

    Got a question:if i upload files to my dropbox on my ipad,how do i move the
    file to a folder on my ipad? For example:I upload a video file to dropbox
    folder (picture) on my ipad from my pc,then i wanne move that file from the
    dropbox folder(picture) to an other folder on my ipad
    itself…..Why?…because so i keep or make space in my dropbox

    Hello everyone. Nice video clip. My older brother was once a fatty. He
    improved his body from 293lbs of fat to 209lbs of pure muscle mass.
    Everyone was in shock. I just registered myself coz I’m looking to get more
    impressive muscle mass. He used the Muscle Building Bible (Google it)…
