Dropbox + Blackberry = <3

Posted by Jon Ying on September 22, 2010

Good news, thumb warriors! Blackberry is now joining the company of iPhone, iPad, and Android in Dropbox’s family of mobile apps, continuing our magical quest to allow access to all your files from anywhere.

Here are a few things you can do using Dropbox’s official mobile apps:

  • Browse the files in your Dropbox folder easily.
  • Open images and other media directly through the app.
  • Upload photos to all of your computers at once.
  • Share links to your files over email.
  • Search through your Dropbox instantly.
  • Export files to other apps.

To download and install the Dropbox Blackberry app, point your smartphone’s browser to http://www.dropbox.com/blackberry.

If the Dropbox app still isn’t enough to quell your Dropbox cravings, check out our new App Directory! The App Directory is a showcase for our newest and hottest partner apps — these apps tie into Dropbox, adding more functionality and features to Dropbox than we can do on our own. There’s document editors, password managers, and even clients for WebOS and Windows Mobile.

But we’re not finished! You can expect more mobile goodness in the near future, so sit tight! :-)

P.S. We also recently updated all our other apps too! Our iPhone/iPad app got a new home screen, HD support, caching and more! Our Android app now has enhanced photo galleries, multi-upload photo, and it looks snazzier too!

P.P.S. If that’s still not enough, then point your phone’s browser to http://m.dropbox.com, Dropbox’s mobile website, where you can do many of the things we’ve already said.

My Bold gives me a “Request Entity Too Large” error when browsing to the install page. Is there any way around that?

How do you move a picture from the Blackberry media directory to DropBox? I don't see any entry in the context menu.

Cannot connect to dropbox today! the reason shows on page is SSL failure –>rssl_error_rx_record_too_long

My initial comments:
1. There is no option to download files.
2. Also no application upon clicking pdf files. Hence, pdf files stored in dropbox are useless via Blackberry.

I've just installed Dropbox in my BlackBerry Bold 9000 and rebooted. Now all I get is a “Reload Software 552″ screen. I think I've lost everything and must “format the HD”, is it?

Thinking about purchasing a pdf viewer app. Do think that would solve #2 or do you think it's a bug in the software?

I got the “white screen of death” once last week. Well–more like the “white screen of white”, being as I could still task-switch to the other apps. Battery-pull, np.

Of course this is still a beta. Kudos guys! Lovin' it!

With firewall running on my bb I can't see contents of files (while I can browse list of files). I also had to reboot device to close the app. I guess it was trying to send some data to dropbox server on exit which were blocked by firewall and app couldn't close properly.

I tried to install dropbox in my computer. I get a window saying:

I don't know how to proceed….

Now let's imagine you are marketing a service that's useful for smartphones, and you have the following figures:

Predicted mobile phone OS market share – end of 2010:
Symbian – 40.1%
Android – 17.7%
RIM – 17.5%
iOS – 15.4%
Windows Phone – 4.7%
(source: http://www.gartner.com/it/page… )

Now which platform would you develop an app for first, assuming you're not stupid and you're not still busy kissing Mr Jobs' bottom for no good reason? Would it be Blackberry? Would it really?

I'm just saying, is all.

MrGroove

Market Share is 1 factor yes, however the other factor is ease of use to

market and sell your apps. The iPhone Apps Store and the Android Store make

it very simple to get your App out there and purchased by people who go into

the App store daily.

So that's another important factor.

Anyone use the Blackberry App store? It's ugly…

I'm new to Dropbox, and I really love it, also love the BlackBerry app… One thing, however: the app has an option to upload pics from your BlackBerry to your Dropbox, but I couldn't find an option to do the same with other file types, like voice recordings. So there seems to be no way to access my BB voice memo's on my PC (which was the first and foremost reason for me to install the app anyway). Also, copying the sound file to the Dropbox folder didn't do the trick (since it seems to be the program folder, with subcategories such as 'temp' and 'cache', and NOT my Dropbox folder with my own file structure).
I'd be grateful to hear of any solutions. Thanks!

As some of the documents in my Dropbox folder are sensitive, I regularly delete the downloaded versions from the Documents to Go app on my Blackberry. Once I do this, I am unable to re-download the documents in question from Dropbox Mobile unless I go onto my desktop computer and change the names of the files in the Dropbox folder there. Is there a reason for this? Can it be fixed?
