Dropbox

Why doesn't the Dropbox app work on my NOOK Tablet? It's easily my most used app on my color and it would be swell if it worked on my new toy as well.

Re: Dropbox

I am curious myself. The DropBox app is not even showing up in the Nook App store in my Nook Tablet.

 

I am wondering if B&N have TWO different version of the App Store?

Re: Dropbox

Hi flyingtoastr,

 

Our app team is working directly with DropBox to bring the app to NOOK Tablet as soon as possible. We’ll keep you posted.

Re: Dropbox

In the meantime, does the website work?  I know it's not half so elegant, but I remember it being proposed awhile back for the NC.

 

And also the hook in Quick Office Pro, if you have that.

Re: Dropbox

The website seems to work perfectly. 

I would love to see the app work but until then tis looks great.

Re: Dropbox

Activated my NT this morning.  Dropbox is on my Apps page (connected NT to my existing account) but have not tried it yet because of last weeks forum comments.  Is Dropbox cleared for the NT yet?

Dropbox Plans for Nook Tablet

In response to my Dropbox ticket:

 


Graham - Dropbox Support, Nov-25 11:39 pm (PST):

Hi Jack,

We do not currently have a plan to release a Nook Tablet application, you should be able to use the Dropbox web application here: http://m.dropbox.com/

In the future we may release an application targeting the Nook, however, this is not currently something we have in development. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Best,
Graham

 

I would really like to have an App!

No Real Need for Dropbox App

I just discovered that the Dropbox function in Quickoffice Pro works just fine on the tablet.  Guess I will not be as disappointed if Dropbox does not "fix" the problem on the Nook Tablet.

Re: No Real Need for Dropbox App

For those who don't have quick office, Dropbox is still a must have app for the nook tablet, if it wants to be a serious competitor to the kindle fire which provides 5 gb of free cloud storage...

Worth mentioning that you can't directly download from that free storage space on a Fire - you have to go through the web browser just like Dropbox is currently requiring on NOOK.

 

But irregardless, Dropbox needs to get their app back. It's my baby. :smileysad:

Barnes and Noble:  Why SELL Dropbox as an app or even show it when shopping from the NT when it won't be compatible?????

 

Dropbox:  PLEASE reconsider and work with BN to provide us a compatible version of the Dropbox to be used on the NT.

Thanks!!!!!!

Re: Dropbox

I hope Dropbox for the Tablet is coming soon -- I upgraded and while the Tablet has some nice features and is faster Dropbox was missing and many useful and free apps from the Andriod market are still missing. Loosen up some!

Re: Dropbox

Dropbox is back! If you're is still hanging out in the "not supported" tab on your NOOK, log into MYNOOK here on BN.com, manually archive the app from the website, synch your NOOK, and unarchive it.
