So, after six weeks HP finally approved my Dropbox app yesterday, which is based on the interface of FTPit!:

Explorer for Dropbox provides access to your Dropbox files and lets you manage them. It also includes a full-featured file manager for your local files.

Features:
three panel interface: Dropbox files, local files and queue of downloads/uploads
• create, delete, move, copy and rename files and folders on your Dropbox and mobile device
• download and upload files or even whole folders
built-in text editor for editing files
• use the smart multi-select feature to perform actions with multiple files/folders
• copy the URL of a Dropbox file to share it with somebody
• sort the file list by name, type, size or modification date
• power scroll gesture to reach the top/bottom of a file list
• open local/downloaded files with their associated app
or directly search for "Dropbox Explorer" in the App Catalog

Please remember to leave a review if you like it, and e-mail me or post in this thread if you have problems

Some screenshots:



Changelog
v1.0.0 (submitted 2013-07-13, approved 2013-08-26): Initial release
v1.0.1 (submitted 2014-02-10): Fixed Dropbox authentication (due to server-side change)

Your app looks really great!
My only problem is, that I can't buy it from the App Catalog since I live outside the US.
Can I somehow buy it with Paypal or with donation?

Martin :-)

Just bought it! Thanks for supporting us. One minor feature request, I really liked the thumbnails of pics in dropboxify. Im not sure which pic I want to download if I don't have thumbs. Any chance to implement this?

Thanks again!!

Just bought it. Many thanks - I'd already patched dropboxify as outlined elsewhere in the forums and that works great, but I wanted to show support for our developers so thanks also for continuing to support us.

cheers

I'll have a look at it, if it's easily possible, I'll post some instructions here, but probably not officially supported as part of the app.

It would be very difficult to implement in a proper way. To add a "symbol" view which also displays thumbnails of image files (both local and remote files), with a working context menu and multi-select, while retaining the current rendering and scrolling performance, especially on very large folders, would take much effort. Mojo is not exactly very flexible in this regard; to make the file manager what it is now, I had to write many hacks (some of them major).
I could put together a separate, hackish thumbnail view (accessible by an option "view thumbnails of images in this folder"), even with a context menu, but it just wouldn't match up with the quality of the rest of the file manager, and I just don't like half-baked implementations.

Yeah, sorry, I'm sometimes not the fastest in responding, but I'll take care of that now.
