As for Dropbox's official stance, the company told us that while "Apple is rejecting apps that use the Dropbox SDK because we allow users to create accounts," it is "working with Apple to come up with a solution that still provides an elegant user experience."

- Tolls gonna' troll... at least they can be articulate.May 2, 2012
- I'd say who cares because in my 38 days of owning the new iPad the experience wasn't all that great and the only thing I got out of it was its easier to found apps optimized for tablets (see what I did hear word play) and overall the dropbox experience is awful on IOS functionality wiseMay 2, 2012
- tablified.com instead.I'm all for Android tablets and living my prime but the problem is to dedicated way of finding applications specifically designed for them. You can searh for tablets or honeycomb though but just use
Android tablets have more potiental than the iPad because they allow access to the file system so I can go to a website and download it by long pressing and choosing save link vs not being able to do it at all or downloading an app that only deals with specific formats.
Google has the right idea by believing there shouldn't be such things as tablet apps and phone apps (because on IOS you have to pay twice) but they are an ad/search company and why they don't have a simple yet elegant tag indicating the target or support level of the app is beyond me.
this needs to be a priority and everything else will fall into place as more Android 4.0 devices saturate the market and current devices get updatedMay 2, 2012
- is this worse than google telling OEM's not to use skyhook and to use google location services?May 2, 2012
- Yes. An OEM can still make an Android phone with Skyhook, but they wouldn't be allowed to include proprietary apps such as the Google Play Store, Gmail, etc. Look to the Kindle Fire as an example that you can be successful without Google's apps.
For iOS developers, Apple has a take-it or leave-it policy as there is no other way to distribute your app than through the App Store.May 2, 2012
