    Indeed it seems Dropbox's login page doesn't work anymore on webOS browsers (tried it on 2.2.4 and 3.0.5). However I don't even get as far as to an error message, while I can see the login page and enter my login data, pressing enter or pressing the login button doesn't do anything.
    More than three years ago when the login page had also been broken for webOS browsers, I was able to figure out the problem and after I contacted them Dropbox fixed their website. However I imagine now they don't care anymore (when opening dropbox.com in the webOS 2.2.4 browser, there's a message at the top about the browser being unsupported), so I won't even bother this way.
    However the app still appears to work when doing the authentication via a supported browser. Basically I would need to expose the authentication URL in the UI and add a button for "authentication completed". Maybe I'll get around to that, but I can't promise anything.
    On a side note, this app is on its deathbed anyway since Dropbox has announced to shut down version 1 of their API on September 28, 2017. The JavaScript library I used (dropbox-js) has been discontinued and doesn't support v2 of the API, so I'd need to port the JavaScript side of the app to a new library, in addition to that I would need to update the download/upload mechanism which is implemented in a C++ plugin. Not sure there's this much interest left to justify updating to the new API.
    If it were to be open sourced, I am sure some enterprising individuals might offer to help; and even LuneOS-ify it.
    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.

    I don't use this app as often as some other people here but it's incredibly useful. Losing it would be a pretty big blow to webOS as a functional OS in 2017. Either way I think you for the great app and supporting it for so long!

    For what's it worth, I got extended access to APIv1 courtesy of Dropbox until end of the year, so the app should work again now (it didn't for the last few days).

    I've already updated most of the app to APIv2 and will clean it up and release it "in the coming months" , but everything should work fine for now.

    Edit 2017-12-19: I got an e-mail from Dropbox saying that the extended access to APIv1 will be valid until 2018-01-31, so the current version of the app is working even longer than expected.

    No more support for Explorer For Dropbox? I can't access to my files on Pre 3 and Touchpad, error message "Unexpected error (code 1).

    Guessing that's the reason...

    I've got an update lined up. It's almost finished, I just need to change a few things and package it up. ETA a few weeks since I'm too busy with other things.
    Thanks for your continued interest in this 4.5 year old app though.

    I need testing for release candidate 1 of the upcoming 1.0.4 update which restores functionality. You can download it from here (sha256: 338e21f733ab98381c722d0310b27c4b8070e44661964d58dbda802cf74b0dee).

    For people who want to test:
    If you had installed this app before and had it authenticated, don't uninstall it before installing the new IPK. Instead, just install the new IPK over your existing installation and let me know if it automatically logs you into your old account without manual intervention, I spent time on implementing automatic migration for existing accounts. If it was unsuccessful please describe the issue and don't go on.
    If the above was successful or you're on a device without this app: In the first case, choose "Disconnect account" from the app menu; in the second case, install the IPK. Follow the instructions to manually authenticate your Dropbox account. Let me know if the instructions were clear and whether authentication was successful.
    Lastly, test if general functionality of the app appears to work.
    When posting test results, please mention your device and OS version. I have only tested it on webOS 2.2.4 so far and haven't tested on the TouchPad.

    Changelog:
    • Rewrote app to use version 2 of the Dropbox API, so it works again (APIv1 was shutdown on 2018-02-01).
    • Allow copying of public Dropbox download URLs of folders in the "information" context menu (it worked only on files before).
    • Introduced new issue: If a Dropbox folder contains more than 2000 files/folders, not all files/folders are going to be downloaded when using the "download" context menu option on folders. See help topic for more details.
    • Removed dropbox.j​s and liboauth dependencies, introduced dropbox-sdk-j​s dependency. See help screen for updated license information.

    This update was more effort than expected (worked on it over multiple days), some stats (excluding libraries):
    28 files changed, 505 insertions(+), 399 deletions(-)
    So I hope it'll be useful.

    Go ( so we can say touchpad ) , 3.0.5

    Previous version present
    - Installed
    - can access the remote dropbox correctly
    - disconnected correctly
    - reauthentiacated

    All working as it should, by what I can see

    I have updated Explorer For Dropbox from the previous version, everything works fine on Pre3 2.2.4 and Touchpad 3.0.5, I can access my files again. The re-authentication process also works on TP 3.0.5 (not tested on Pre3). I will donate soon. Thank you.
