    I loaded Dropbox this afternoon and it doesn't work really well on PB and just wondering if anyone else has noticed. I have the following issues:

    1) New MSFT Files with .xlsx, .docx and .pptx won't launch from Dropbox. I found a workaround to rename the files to remove the last x from the extension but then that causes issues on my desktop.
    2) Files do not get sync'd properly back to dropbox sometime in that I have seen they either add a (1) to the end of the filename instead or just don't sync at all.

    I am finding Files & Folders is much more reliable though somewhat manual.

    While I haven't had a good play with the Android Dropbox app in terms of syncing and opening documents, I'm a bit stumped as to where images downloaded end up on the PB. I got a nice little notification in the corner telling me Dropbox was downloading but then I can't find the file in my media folder anywhere. Any help?

    OK. I think I tried Box a while back and wasn't big on it. I think it was because they don't have an app for BlackBerry phones which I also need.

    Like I said before, I use Files & Folders on my PB and it is OK. It's worth the $3. It syncs with several cloud storage types and just downloads the files into a folder on your PB which you can find. It also lets you browse the PB file system. It takes a little more work to copy the edited files back to Dropbox but is reliable.

    Just use dropbox.com with your PlayBook browser it works great.
    Or use the dropbox android app

    I use the free app BlueBox which integrates with Dropbox and gives me all my Dropbox files.
