HOWTO | Master Dropbox on iOS
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.
