    Hello,

    I'm just wondering if there's a way to view pictures that I have on my Dropbox account on my Touchpad?

    I'm looking for a way to quickly browse through thumbnails and find certain pictures?


    Thank you,
    TouchpadGuy

    You have to log in to your dropbox web account (via the web) and view them that way. No dedicated application (as of yet....)

    That's not entirely true. Dropbox is integrated through Synergy, so you don't need a dedicated app. The problem is that apparently HP didn't think it needed to be plugged into the photos/videos app, so you can't browse the pics you have on Dropbox.

    Yeah you do - because unless I'm mistaken it does not store local copies unless you specifically open a file. It's access to your dropbox files not dropbox as it is on other platforms.

    you can download dropboxify - which will show thumbnails that open full screen even though the app is pre size.

    For right now you do for photos/videos, I'm not arguing that. But Dropbox is *partially* integrated through Synergy. There's no reason to think that *if* HP had been wise enough to have the Photos/Videos app integrated with Dropbox that it wouldn't have pulled your pics/videos locally since the other integrated web services do..

    Yes, I'm speculating because HP did a half-assed job of bringing Dropbox into the mix, but I didn't dispute that as it stands right now we would need to use the web login (hence why I said it was not entirely true).

    Or install android (yes yes I know... but it is an option)

    right enough, worded wrong but still no way to get pictures from dropbox without going via web... Strange one, that...

    I logged into my dropbox account through web on HP TP and went to my shared directory, but I only see my doc and pdf files and picture or video files, even though they are there.

    I have checked with my desktop and they are there, but somehow not showing up on TP.

    Any help?

    Thanks,
