HOWTO | Mas­ter Drop­box on iOS

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

1 Ac­cess files off­line

The Drop­box iOS app al­lows you to Favourite files stored in your Drop­box. Why would you want to do that? Be­cause when you Favourite a file, it’s down­loaded to your de­vice and is ac­ces­si­ble off­line. So if you store mu­sic in Drop­box (you can play mu­sic di­rectly from the Drop­box app), you can Favourite a folder with tracks in it to down­load them and lis­ten to them when you haven’t got an in­ter­net con­nec­tion.

2 Eas­ily add to iBooks

iBooks is a great place to store, or­gan­ise, and read PDF in­struc­tion man­u­als and re­ports. You can add them di­rectly from Sa­fari in iOS, but what if they’re on your Mac and not on­line? Copy it to Drop­box on your Mac, find it in the Drop­box app on your iPhone or iPad, and tap ‘Open in’ then ‘iBooks.’The PDF will open in iBooks and be added to your iBooks li­brary. The same trick works with non-DRMed ePub books.

3 Move a file

Mov­ing a file from one folder to another isn’t easy on iOS. Thank­fully, there’s another way. Find the file you want to move, then swipe left to right over it to re­veal op­tions. Tap the box with an ar­row com­ing out of its side. Now nav­i­gate to the folder you want to move it to and tap Move at the bot­tom of the screen. Alternatively, tap Cre­ate Folder to put it in a new folder.
