IPad iWork + Dropbox, WebDAV & DropDAV, instructions. DROPDAV IS NO LONGER FREE!!!
One of the main challenges desktop users encounter when starting to use the cloud and mobile devices is how to get their precious content on and off the device. Sure, you can use iTunes to add files, but what about working directly from an application? This is where DropDAV comes into play. DropDAV effectively lets your application talk directly to DropBox. Many productivity applications such as Pages, Keynote, etc have webDAV capability.
Price: Free for upto 2GB if you use the free Dropbox application -- upto $6.00 monthly for higher end use. The DropDAV is also free as long as Dropbox remains free.
High security: DropDAV uses SSL; providing the same standard of security as your online bank.
It could hardly be simpler to use.
- Register at www.dropbox.com (with email and password for free!
- Register at www.dropdav.com (simply sign in with your DropBox credentials)
- Open an appropriate application on your iPad such as Pages and select Copy to WebDAV. Enter the Server Address as https://dav.dropdav.com and use your DropBox credentials as username and password.
Now all you need do is open your iPad application and you can copy to or download from webDAV within the application. Your files will appear in DropBox and any locations where they are synchronised with DropBox -- eg. between your desktop and your iPad.
